- We're making more! This product will ship on Wednesday 16 January.
- Centasoothe is our new Dragon's Blood and Centella Asiatica treatment serum. This serum is perfect for more sensitive and damaged skin that won't tolerate strong acids and retinoids.
- Dragon's blood contains phenolic compounds and the alkaloid taspine which are thought to be the main reasons for its wound-healing properties.
- Centella Asiatica (also known as Gotu Kola) has been shown to be effective as an anti-inflammatory agent - particularly in eczema. Centella can also enhance type I collagen, which decreases with age. The mechanism of action of centella involves promoting the building of fibroblasts which increases the synthesis of collagen. Six month treatment with a centella extract has been shown to improve skin firmness, elasticity and skin hydration.
- Evening primrose oil has significant skin soothing effects and increases the absorbency of the other actives in this serum. Evening primrose oil has also been proven to be effective in the repair of the stratum corneum.
- Panthenol (viamin b5) is hygroscopic and helps skin absorb moisture.
- Sodium lactate hydrates skin and aloe vera and vitamin e soothes.
- Natural - vegan, paraben-free, no sillicates, polyethylene glycols (PEGS) or mineral oils and not tested on animals. Made in the UK.
