We’re happy to admit we are the ultimate skin nerds. But what is a ‘nerd’ really? Other than to be so passionate about something to the point where it’s deemed “uncool”? Like kindness, passion is something we will always be proud of.
One of our skincare passions is ingredients. We offer products with high concentrations of active, naturally sourced extracts such as herbs, essential oils and vitamins. Today, we examine two of the powerhouse ingredients that make up our Joyce Blok Rejuvenating Skin Cream.
The popular Rejuvenating Skin Cream is a moisture-rich emollient which contains Proteodermin® and glycolic acid to rejuvenate, strengthen, firm and rehydrate the skin. It is the perfect night cream and is especially beneficial for dry, devitalised complexions.
- Glycolic acid - Glycolic acid is one of the top-tier alpha hydroxy acids. Glycolic acid works to buff away dead cells from the skin’s surface, and in doing so, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, helps fades hyperpigmentation, and clear acne. Derived from sugarcane, glycolic acid is also a humectant meaning it has the chemical ability to draw moisture to itself. And if it can draw water to itself, it can certainly draw it to your skin! Hydration, anti-ageing and anti-blemish treatment in one ingredient? Yes, please!
- Proteodermin® - We like to think of Proteodermin® as the original great of anti-ageing! It’s made of proteoglycan. Proteoglycans play a vital role in cell growth, restoration, and improved collagen metabolism. A marine sourced protein, it helps retain the skin’s moisture balance by absorbing moisture from the air. Overall, Proteodermin® rejuvenates the skin by helping to restore and maintain the skin’s function.
These two ingredients combined make the ultimate dream team and result in smoother, firmer, younger-looking skin for your best beauty sleep yet.
