  • Vitamin E

    Alpha Tocopherol is a pure form of Vitamin E, which is a natural antioxidant, providing protection against free radicals. It offers some protection against sun damage and redness from exposure to ultraviolet light. Studies also show that it blocks enzymes that break down Elastin, a skin protein that gives skin its youthful resiliency and ability to “bounce back.” Thus it helps to maintain elasticity in your skin.

  • Biomin™ Aquacinque

    BIOMIN™ AQUACINQUE contains magnesium, iron, copper, silicon and zinc and thus, provides essential mineral support for the skin. Magnesium - supports and maintains proper skin function and structural integrity of tissues. Iron – a carrier of oxygen throughout the body and skin. It prevents your skin looking fatigued and promotes good skin tone. Copper - helps to oxidise vitamin C and helps to form elastin in the skin. This mineral is important in the production of the enzyme tyrosinase, which is essential for the production of melanin. Silicon - plays an important role in the formation of collagen and connective tissues in hair, skin and nails.Zinc - helps in normal tissue function and is known to be healing to problem skins and acne prone skin.

Clinically tested. it shows improved luminosity and skin tone, reducing redness. Also helps to increase collagen density in the skin and decreases hyper-pigmentation and dark spots.

    CHROMOCARE™ can be found in Iconic Youth Serum™

  • Collagen

    When it comes to skincare, collagen plays a big part; it is what holds the skin together, giving it firmness and elasticity. Collagen provides integrity, firmness and elasticity to skin. As we get older, our body's collagen production reduces which can result in an increase of wrinkles and fine lines as well as, decreasing smoothness and suppleness of the skin. These signs of ageing can be treated or slowed down if total body collagen levels can be increased. Maximising collagen levels will keep skin supple. The collagen molecule is too large to be absorbed through the skin topically, so we use ingredients that enhance the skin's own collagen production, synthesis, protection and retention.

    Collagen can be found in Iconic Youth Serum™Treatment Toner™Retinol Resurfacing Treatment™ Intensely Youthful Eye Cream™ and Youth Preservation Moisturiser™ SPF20

  • Copper

    helps form elastin, which keeps skin supple and gives it bounce. It is also critical for the absorption and use of Iron and the production of melanin, needed for skin tanning.

E

  • Elastin

    Elastin is a protein, primarily composed of amino acids, that give skin it’s ‘bounce’. The amount of elastin in the skin, reaches its peak production in early adulthood, after which production and skin’s ability to produce and store elastin, slowly declines. Age and other factors like air pollution or direct sunlight will greatly affect elastin too.We formulate using ingredients that stimulate the skin’s Elastin production and synthesis which revitalises and hydrates, to reduce the effects of ageing.

    Elastin synthesising ingredients can be found in Iconic Youth Serum™, and Intensely Youthful Eye Cream™

  • EPIDERMOSIL

    EPIDERMOSIL is a synergistic combination of low molecular weight Hyaluronic and Silicium. Silicium is a natural component of the skin that ensures integrity of the skin’s architecture. As we age, the amount of Silicium in skin decreases, leading to the collapse of the skin’s architecture and the formation of wrinkles. This combination offers improved penetration and enhances the bioavailability of Hyaluronic Acid. Deep wrinkles are reduced, skin firmness and elasticity is improved.

    EPIDERMOSIL can be found in Lip Line Restoration Treatment™

  • Eusolex® UV-Pearls™ (SPF)

The compounds also have the ability to actively attract moisture to the skin.

  • Hyaluronic Acid (Sodium Hyaluronate)

    Almost half of the body’s HA is located in the collagen of skin and it is logical that HA plays a vital role here.  Hyaluronic acid helps to retain over a 1000 times its weight in water within the cells of skin, making it an excellent moisturizer. In fact, no other biological substance can retain as much water as HA resulting in increased smoothness, softening and decreased wrinkles.  Equally important is its ability to remove waste matter from cells including those where there is little blood circulation.

    HYALURONIC ACID can be found in  Gentle Exfoliating Toner™, Iconic Youth Serum™, Retinol Resurfacing Treatment™, Youth Preservation Moisturiser™ SPF20, Intensely Youthful Eye Cream™, Treatment Toner ™ and Lip Line Restoration Treatment™

  • MERUMAYA® SIGNATURE ESSENCE BLEND

    This is a unique blend that contains mostly natural essential oils and a few nature identical notes to engage the olfactory senses and add pleasure and sensuality to your skincare experience. We have chosen to move away from the commonly used single citrus notes and create something truly unique that sparks a unique experience for everyone.
