New Essential Nutrient Serum from Skin Essentials:
Daily Serum is now more concentrated and paraben-free
Summary: Daily Nutrient Serum has been replaced by the more concentrated Essential Nutrient Serum which gives all the benefits of DNS, but with added high-powered anti-oxidants for cell protection and anti-ageing, and added anti-inflammatory for cell protection and repair and anti-ageing AND anti-redness, phew!
Active Ingredients in new serum NOT in Daily Nutrient Serum:
(increases collagen synthesis and UV protection) Fucoidans are sulfated polysaccharides with structures that depend on the plant source and growing conditions.
Applied to the skin, fucoidan will increase the density of collagen bundles, decrease activity of proteases (enzymes that break down dermal proteins), increase scavenging of free radicals and increase cell proliferation.
These effects would be mediated through increased expression of ß1-integrin and may also help with wound healing.
Because of its particular molecular structure, astaxanthin serves as an extremely powerful antioxidant.
It has a very effective quenching effect against singlet oxygen, a powerful scavenging ability for lipid and free radicals and effectively breaks peroxide chain reactions.
Carotenoids are effective at low oxygen concentrations, complementing the activity of vitamin E which is effective at higher oxygen concentrations.
Astaxanthin has also been shown to enhance and modulate the immune system. The antioxidant and immunomodulating activities, in combination or separately, may reduce the acute inflammation reaction that follows excessive exposure to UV radiation for the skin and tissue just beneath the skin.
Included instead of sodium hyluronate, the bigger molecule holds more water and binds water in the upper layers of the epidermis. Will not draw water from lower epidermal layers in dry air.
The formula is now water-free so no parabens (more concentrated)
- Ingredients in DNS NOT in new serum
- water, parabens
- Laminara Japonica extract
- Sea kelp extracts
- Sodium hyaluronate
Essential Nutrient Serum is a more concentrated, more anti-inflammatory and more anti-oxidant serum than Daily Nutrient Serum.
It still has the water-based daily nutrients such as peptides, coconut endosperm, and anti-irritant bisabolol.
The hyaluronic acid bigger molecule makes it more moisturising and a little thicker.
- Younger skin
- Men after shaving
- Change to other serum once ageing becomes a concern
- Better for acne anti-inflammatory
- Use for younger rosacea where anti-ageing not yet needed
