Everyone benefits from Vitamin C in their skincare routine. This next-generation formula is hybrid between a toner, softening lotion and essence, rolled into one to:

• Increases collagen synthesis to improve skin's density
• Repair UV light-induced photodamage, to reduce dark spots or hyper-pigmentation
• Provide antioxidant protection to slow down skin ageing & minimise lines and wrinkles
• Brighter, glowing skin and a smoother, more even skin tone 
• Hydrates, moisturises & provides pre-biotic action

Of all the vitamins and minerals, the impressive benefits of Vitamin C are almost legendary. We use a potent and stabilised natural form of Vitamin C in a concentration will not irritate skin, unlike super high concentrations which deserve caution. Encapsulated, Vitamin C activates only on contact with the skin and has a prolonged action in the skin, to give you the best skin brightening results:

• Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by boosting collagen reserves
• Immediate and long-term hydration from Hyaluronic Acid, Natural Betaine, Brown & Micro Algae. Helps layer in hydration to plump the skin.
• Maintains skin density. Prolonged anti-oxidant protection against collagen break down caused by UV light.
• Brightens and evens your skin tone, helping prevent and reduce dark spots & hyper-pigmentation

Use after Melting Cleansing Balm™ to lock in moisture. Can be paired with our acid toner Gentle Exfoliating Toner™ to exfoliate and rejuvenate skin.

    There is no doubt that Vitamin C in skincare is proven to be an excellent ingredient and a vital one for all skin types. However, in recent years we've seen a trend towards super high concentrations of single ingredients in serums, creams and lotions. Typically, recommended and used by beauty journalists and influencers, who's job it is to try out new products, to create new content. And also the brands; those that offer high concentration single ingredients that on the surface, look like they are cheap (they are cheap formula's); and others promise you perfect skin, miracle-in-a-jar products, celebrity endorsements and anti-ageing skincare. Much of that is supported by paid for product reviews and fat endorsement fee's. I caution you away from these high concentrations for the following reasons:

    • There has been an rise in skin irritation, perioral dermatitis and other skin sensitivities. I believe it is related to the practise of over-dosing the skin, chopping and changing too frequently, using far too many products in a routine.
    • Using too many products: without context following Korean 17-step skincare routines. Using several high concentration, single active ingredient serums on top of each other, means several layers of water, silicon and preservatives, which at best, pill and roll off the skin and at worst, cause irritation. This is also a false economy, penny wise and pound foolish and requires you to be a skincare scientist in your own bathroom, to decide what to use with what. So, much better to let an actual skincare scientist do the formulating for you, combine the correct active ingredients, in the correct clinically tested concentration and use one serum instead of five or six.
    • People slavishly following indiscriminate beauty advice, which is obsessed with trends, rehashing over-claiming press releases, being first with the new news and if it's not new, inventing it... without applying common sense or knowledge of their own skin, time available and budgetary constraints. No-one knows your skin better than you. What is good for one person might not be for another and vice versa.

    I created the Treatment Toner after numerous customer requests. I never used to use a toner, but it's converted me! With your help on what you want from a Toner, my experience, the help of seriously good cosmetic scientists and finally, your trial and critique of our lab samples, we finally created the optimum formula that I hope you will love.

    I insisted it had to do more than just refresh the skin or remove excess cleanser. After a lot of work, its a hybrid between an Asian essence, Toner and Treatment. It helps to 'layer' in critical moisture to the skin, seriously brighten skin, soften skin, boost collagen production. I wanted to include Vitamin C, long before it became fashionable because it is proven to be a fantastic antioxidant, boost collagen synthesis for a more youthful skin and it brightens and lightens dark spots. We did not hold back on active ingredients and I doubt there is another toner on the market that has so many and in effective concentrations. Try it!
