UPDATE: Since we have replaced the bottle packaging with a jar this product is now back to its original gel consistency. It is again thick, fluffy and feather light.
Description: Skin Rehab light is a deeply soothing and repairing moisturiser for oily and combination sensitised skin barrier. It is a powerful solution for redness and irritation caused by jet-lag/air-travel, harsh weather and cosmetic actives. Enriched with restoring essential Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, Oat beta glucan, 2% Ceramides Bisabolol, and 0.7% Centella Asiatica this light cream encourages fast skin recovery from chronic and traumatic skin conditions and cosmetic procedures.
There is a substantial data demonstrating that atopic dermatitis, acne vulgaris, rosacea and other skin conditions are associated with an impaired skin barrier function. Most of these skin diseases share similar symptoms such as an increase in trans-epidermal water loss, a decrease in water binding properties and a reduction in skin surface lipids, specifically level of ceramides. This weightless cream addresses all the above issues without incorporating unnecessary ingredients that could be challenging to an already distressed skin such as essential oils, silicones, acids and alcohol.
Suitable for: Oily/Combination sensitised skin.
Directions: Apply a pea-size amount onto dry skin and gently massage until fully absorbed. This cream can be layered or coktailed with all of our oils and serums. Apply as often and as much as your skin needs.

SKIN REHAB LIGHT - GEL CREAM FOR OILY AND COMBINATION SENSITISED SKIN
Coco-Caprylate Caprate - A skin-conditioning oil ester, naturally derived from coconuts to provide high hydration, superb spreadability and elegant slip. Very lght and non-comedogenic.
Zemea Propanediol - A petroleum-free and highly pure glycol, derived from fermented corn. A superior humectant with no sticky feel on skin. Ecocert Approved
Organic Glycerin - A powerful skin-identical humectant that helps keeps skin hydrated and radiant.
Squalane - Similar to the skin’s sebum, squalane is one of the best natural emollients. It penetrates skin faster than any other oil, making it a great carrier for other actives. Squalane is also an anti-bacterial and an antioxidant that prevents UV damage and formation of age spots.
Teprenone (Renovage) - Teprenone has shown to reduce redness and ineffective barrier function
Cetearyl Alcohol/Cetearyl Glucoside - 100% Natural and biodegradable emulsifier. Ecocert Approved
Allantoin - A wonderful humectant that promotes moisturised and soft skin. A powerful anti-irritant that works best for acne, dermatitis and dry skin.
Glyceryl Stearate - 100% natural emulsifier deriving from coconuts. Ecocert Approved
Organic Oxycoccus Palustris (Cranberry) Seed CO2 Oil - An exceptional skin moisturiser with a myriad of skin nurturing benefits. Contains one of the highest antioxidant and phytosterol concentration, making it an excellent addition to your natural sun protection products, where it helps prevent photo damage. Great for dry, itchy, irritated and acne-prone skin.
Ceramide 1 + Ceramide 3 - 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.
Bisabolol - Candeia tree derived this anti-inflammatory extract is extremely soothing and calming to irritated skin. It is not an essential oil!
Centella Asiatica Extract - This amazing extract promotes wound healing and skin irritations faster than most herbs that we know. Our Centella extract is quite potent with 70% Triterpenes.
Organic Althaea (Marshmallow) Officinalis Root Extract - 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.
Organic Ginkgo Biloba Extract - 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 people with sensitive skin.
Oat Beta Glucans - Despite its high molecular weight Oat Beta Glucan has been shown to penetrate deeply into the tissues to deliver advanced topical skin benefits. Oat Beta Glucan is well known for reducing irritation, and inflammation to speed the healing of damaged tissues. Oat Beta Glucans can help repair the stratum corrneum (the uppermost layer of skin that helps, amongst other functions, to maintain moisture content of the skin.
Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer - 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.We use an extremely low molecular weight HA (8k to 15k Dal) in this face cream which has the ability to penetrate the dermis and plump the skin not only superficially but at a deeper level.
Jojoba Esters - Jojoba Esters is a hydrolised jojoba oil that, when combined with glycerine provides significant long term moisturisation benefits.
L-theanine - The limited studies that have been conducted on this ingredient indicate that topical delivery of l-theanine possesses anti-inflammatory effect of acute skin inflammation.
Organic 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.
Phytosterol - a natual pure beta-sitosterol, a natural micro-nutrient plant fat derrived from the cells and membranes of pine tree. Chemically very similar to animal cholesterol it is a powerful anit-redness and anti-irritation agent.
Polyacrylate Crosspolymer-6 - A gel making synthetic polymer without any known toxicity. Very tolerated by sensitive skin. THIS IS NOT A MICROPLASTIC.
Gluconolactone+Sodium Benzote - A preservative system at 1% concenration. Gluconolactone is a naturally derived polyhydroxy acid that acts as an antioxidant, and benzoic acid is a food-grade preservative which in regulatory terms is considered GRAS (generally recognised as safe). Ecocert Approved
*Alpha-Tocopherol - A powerful lipid soluble antioxidant; protects against oxidative damage.
