Observ Skin Analysis Tool

The Observ is a skin analysis tool that uses specific wavelengths of light to expose underlying skin conditions that may not be visible to the naked eye. It takes 6 images of the skin, each of which exposes different underlying skin conditions such as inflammation, oil flow, skin texture, and pigmentation.The scans provide you and your dermal therapist with a future overview of strengths and weaknesses so we can tailor your treatment plan and regimen to include not only what your skin needs now, but what it will need soon. Think of it as your skin fortune teller!

Oligopeptide-34

A synthetic peptide which is comprised of 13 amino acids- the building blocks of protein in the body. It is used in products to reduce hyperpigmentation by limiting the production of specific enzymes that are essential for the synthesis of melanin, the pigment in your skin.

Omegas

Omega fatty acids are a fundamental skin ingredient that can contribute to a healthy skin barrier function and an improved skin cell function. Omega fatty acids contribute to skin cell membrane integrity which influences our cells ability to retain water which results in improved skin appearance and function. Topical application of omegas not only supports the skin strength but also helps fight against external stressors and environmental damage that can lead to inflammation and accelerated skin ageing. The level of essential fatty acids also declines with age which can leave the skin feeling dry, flaky and lack lustre. Feeding the skin from the outside in with omegas can provide the epidermis and dermis with a top up of essential hydrating and moisturizing benefits that will contribute to a radiant and glowing complexion. We recommend also introducing omegas into your diet as oral supplementation as when consumed in conjunction with topical application a fantastic synergy an acceleration of your results is achieved.

Organic Silicon

Organic silicon is a trace element of silica and is formed of silicon and oxygen. It stabilises and maintains connective tissue through stimulating fibroblasts to produce more collagen and elastin regenerating the skin and improving skin texture. It also prevents the decomposition of fats and oils through oxidation, thus preventing the release of free radicals that cause damage to skin cells.

Oxybenzone

Oxybenzone is a chemical sunscreen that when applied to skin absorbs UVA rays(the rays responsible for photoaging) before your skin can. There has been some controversy around oxybenzone as a 2015 study has shown that it can limit the growth of young corals, therefore contributing to the demise of our coral reefs around the world. For this reason, it is banned in Hawaii and we don’t stock any sunscreens with oxybenzone in either.
