Benefits: We wanted to create a multi-functional lightweight serum that does it all:
- boosts skin's natural protective and repair mechanisms against sun damage and pollution
- delivers lasting nutrients and hydration
- stimulates collagen production and cell turnover
- balances oil production
- does not irritate sensitive skin (essential oil free)
- brightens complexion
- If l-ascorbic acid based serums are too sensitising for your skin,then this serum is a great alternative. It contains two types of vitamin c esters (5%Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate and 5%Ascorbyl Glucoside) to help you get the benfits of vitamin c without the harsh side effects of l ascorbic acid. One of the main reasons these esters do not irritate as much is because they don't require an extremely low pH to be able to do their job. Super serum's pH is around 5
Traditionally serums deliver potent active ingredients, while moisturisers have much thicker consistency to prevent water loss and keep skin supple. Our new Super Serum is something of a hybrid. It has an impressive inci list of actives and a light texture that absorbs fast and while its main function is to super-charge your skin with protective antioxidants, it can also double as a light day moisturiser.
The multi-correctional formula is an antioxidant powerhouse, designed with actives such as Vitamin C (10%), Co-Q10+, Astaxanthin, 2% EGCG, Superoxide Dismutase and potent botanicals, including Arctic Cranberry and Pequi oil, to nourish and shield skin from environmental pollution, while working hard to prevent collagen degradation and pigmentation.
Furthermore, our proprietary signature infusion of anti-inflammatory herbs - Dandelion, Liquorice, Ginkgo biloba, Lemon balm, Marshmallow, Plantain and Calendula works in synergy with Hyaluronic acid, Ceramides and Cholesterol to address skin conditions such as dehydration, pore congestion and loss of vitality.
Directions: This light fluid can be used on its own or mixed with oils. It also doubles as an eye cream. After your morning cleanse apply 2 pumps on dry skin and massage in until fully absorbed.
Tip: Add a couple of drops of Skin barrier restoring oil to your Super Serum if your skin is dry.
Caution: We recommend a patch test 24 hours prior to use. Discontinue if any redness and irritation occurs. This is a pregnancy and breasfeeding product
Suitable for: All skin types. However acne prone, dull, dehydrated and unbalanced skin would benefit the most. Recommended for day use due to its high concentration of antioxidants. Particularly useful for urban skin to help counteract damaging free radicals caused by pollution and sun exposure.
Fragrance: Essential oil and synthetic fragrance free. Pequi oil gives this serum a light tropical scent similar to pineapple.

Sunflower Lecithin - Lecithin is an emollient, which is a softening and soothing agent. Its powerful moisturizing properties help to keep the skin hydrated, making it an excellent additive for restorative creams, or for products designed for dehydrated and overworked skin. It also has the unique ability to deeply penetrate the skin, and carry substances deep into the dermis. It is composed of phosphoric acid, choline, fatty acids, glycerol, glycolipids, triglycerides, and phospholipids.
Ginkgo Biloba - Extremely rich in quercetin, a natural flavonoid and antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties, Ginkgo is a powerful free radical scavenger and anti-aging active. Very beneficial for oily skin and clogged pores as well as for people with sensitive skin.
Plantain - Plantain's natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties make it great for speeding recover of wounds, itching or discomfort associated with skin problems.
Liquorice root - Liquorice contains various naturally-occurring compounds, including glabridin and liquiritin. Glabridin have been found to be successful at lightening the colour of skin. Studies have shown that glabridin also prevents UV-B induced pigmentation and exerts anti-inflammatory effects on the skin. Liquiritin is particularly useful for treating melasma.
Dandelion Leaf - Dandelion is one of the richest sources of Vitamins A, C, and E. This group of vitamins together acts as powerful antioxidants. They help in arresting skin cell degeneration while also boosting collagen synthesis and general skin health.
Marshmallow Root - Extremely calming for sensitive skin, rosacea, dry skin, including psoriasis and eczema. Marshmallow root is plumping and can smooth out fine lines, even redness and heal abrasions, nicks and other small cuts present on the skin.
Calendula leaf - Very rich in vitamin C and E, calendula has been used for centuries to heal wounds, burns, eczema, bruises and skin ulcers. Calendula also has proven anti-fungal, antiseptic and astringent properties.
Lemon Balm - Lemon balm is naturally rich in caffeic, ferulic and rosmarinic acids, which are potent antioxidants. It also contains powerful natural astringents called tannins. Besides it also possesses important antibacterial properties. These make lemon balm highly effective for acne prone, oily and sensitive skin.
Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (Vitamin C) -One of the most potent forms of vitamin C, due to its lipid solubility, which allows it to penetrate straight into the dermis without any irritation. Powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, phyto-protectant, collagen synthesis promoter and wound healer are just few of the properties this super active has. Due to its effectiveness in low concentrations, it is gentle to sensitive skin and works really well for people who cannot tolerate L-ascorbic acid.
Ascorbyl Glucoside - A stable Vitamin C derivative that functions as an antioxidant and works well with other replenishing and antioxidant ingredients to preserve key substances skin needs to look smoother, brighter, and younger.
Ubiquinone (Co-enzyme Q10) - Ubiquinone represents an endogenously synthesised lipid‐soluble antioxidant which is crucial for cellular energy production but is diminished with age and under the influence of external stress factors in skin. Studies results demonstrate that stressed skin benefits from the topical Q10 treatment by reduction of free-radicals and an increase in antioxidant capacity.
Sclerotium gum - improves the viscosity, and texture, of emulsions while improving the skin's moisture.
Hyaluronic Acid - Hyaluronic acid’s ability to replenish moisture is exremely impressive! One gram of hyaluronic acid can hold up to six liters of water. This moisture-binding characteristic is particularly important when it comes to skin aging. Hyaluronic acid can enhance moisture in skin beyond comparison with any other ingredient, and make skin look and feel softer, smoother and radiant. It really can instantly improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Pro-vitamin B5 - is an excellent, penetrating humectant that helps stimulate cellular proliferation and tissue repair.
Astaxanthin - Our Astaxanthin derives from the red microalgae. A very powerful antioxidant, it is helpful in stimulating continuous production of collagen, which is responsible for maintaining skin tone, elasticity and firmness. It also helps reduce melanin production, diminishing age spots and freckles. The lipid soluble nature of astaxanthin allows it to efficiently penetrate into the cell membrane and do its magic. Recent studies show that astaxanthin is up to 1000 times more effective than vitamin C, 500 times more effective than vitamin E and 10 times more effective than beta-carotene as an antioxidant. Additionally Astaxanthin has also been found to enhance the antioxidant actions of vitamin E and C due to possible synergistic effect.
Beta Carotene - Powerful antioxidant that protects against infra-red-light-induced free-radicals. Topical application of beta-carotene is also great for those with melasma and sun-damage related pigmentation.
Ceramides - As skin identical lipids, ceramides restore moisture, reinforce the skin’s natural barrier and help protect it against harm from foreign elements. Ceramides are also particularly effective in treating eczema.
Superoxide Dismutase - A potent irritation reducing active with the added antioxidant benefits (a powerful free-radical scavenger).
Silica - natural quartz mineral, used as an anti-caking and thickening agent.
Arctic Cranberry CO2 Seed Extract with 0.1% sunflower oil - Exceptional skin moisturiser with a myriad of skin nurturing benefits.
