Care for menopausal skin with these super ingredients, proven to deliver results to target the specific skin concerns caused by hormonal changes


What are they? Cell communicating ingredients. 

What do they do? Peptides are short chains of amino acids that are the building blocks of certain proteins needed by the skin, like collagen and elastin.  When we when apply topically to skin, they send messages to increase collagen production.

Why do we need them in menopause?  As we go through menopause, collagen levels decline rapidly - we lose 30% in the first 5 years after  menopause.  When we add peptides to the skin they act as messengers, triggering skin to make more collagen and elastin.  This supports skin on multiple levels leaving skin plumper, smoother and firmer.



What is it? Cell-communicating ingredient, skin brightening, anti-acne, moisturizer/ humectant

What does it do? Niacinamide, (also known as vitamin B3 or nicotinamide) is a multi-functional skincare super ingredient that offers a multitude of benefits for skin. Best known for its ability to improve skin texture and tone, it is proven to brighten skin and boost radiance.  It also acts to strengthen a weakened skin barrier by increasing production of ceramides protecting against moisture loss and dehydration.  Niacinamide also has anti-inflammatory properties, and it works to soothe and calm redness and irritation.  Used over time, niacinamide can reduce pore size and helps to control hormonal breakouts.

Why do we need it in menopause? As we go through menopause, our skin changes dramatically.  Niacinamide can single-handedly target a multitude of skin issues caused by fluctuating hormones.  Skin becomes drier and thinner and starts to lose radiance and tone.  The skin’s protective skin barrier starts to weaken, and skin becomes more prone to sensitivity and breakouts.  Niacinamide works to brighten skin and boost radiance, strengthen skin’s natural barrier as well as calming and soothing with an anti-inflammatory effect.  Used over time it will even help to control hormonal breakouts.



What is it? Antioxidant, phytoestrogen

What does it do? Found in the skin of red grapes, resveratrol is a naturally occurring skincare super-ingredient.  A highly potent antioxidant, it protects skin from environmental stressors.  It can also help to repair and reverse cellular skin damage that has already occurred.   Resveratrol also acts as a phytoestrogen, meaning it mimics the effect oestrogen has on skin - boosting skin firmness, elasticity, and radiance.  It is also proven to help reduce the appearance of age spots.

Why do we need it in menopause? Skin in menopause can become much more sensitive, but it still needs powerful active ingredients that will make a real difference.  It’s wise to be careful with your choice of antioxidant as ingredients you might have been using happily before, like vitamin c, are known to cause irritation in some skin types.  Resveratrol is highly effective antioxidant, but it is suitable for most skin types and is well tolerated even for sensitive skin so suitable for menopause.



What is it?  Skin-identical ingredient, moisturizer/humectant

What does it do?  Hydrolysed hyaluronic acid is a low-molecular weight version of the super-hydrator hyaluronic acid.  Hyaluronic acid is a powerful moisture binding ingredient that works beneath the skin’s surface and can hold up to 1,000 x its weight in water. Because of its low molecular weight, Hydrolysed Hyaluronic Acid is able to penetrate deeper into the skin’s layers for maximum below-the-surface hydration. 

Why do we need it in menopause?  In menopause, skin becomes increasingly dry and dehydrated as it loses its ability to hold onto water.  Hydrolysed hyaluronic acid works as a humectant and binds water to the surface of the skin, restoring lost hydration and locking in vital moisture
