From day to night, A-Oxitive protects sensitive skin against everyday aggressors that can contribute to ageing.

In the AM, A-Oxitive Antioxidant Defense Serum and the complementary Day Cream work in harmony to protect your skin against damage from free radicals, thanks to our gradual release Vitamin C.

Overnight, gradual release Vitamin A (Retinaldehyde) in both our Smoothing Night and Eye Cream boosts cellular activity, refines the skin’s texture and evens the skin tone to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Gradual Release Vitamin E (Pre-tocopheryl) fights against free radicals.

DERMABSOLU: RESTORE

Visibly lift and firm while restoring comfort and moisture to the skin.

  • Antioxidant Vanilla Polyphenol protects the hyaluronic acid in the skin
  • Our patented version of Bakuchiol, SytenolTM is a natural alternative to retinol that helps protect against collagen depletion
  • Glycoleol, an essential skin lipid precursor intensely nourishes the skin

As we get older, fewer natural oils, sun damage, and decreased cell renewal can all lead to dry, rougher skin. That's why DermAbsolu balances effective anti-ageing AND intensely nourishing ingredients.

In the AM, DermAbsolu’s unique serum in oil and complementary Day cream, firms and moisturises with "white light" pigments gently illuminating the skin. Overnight, let DermAbsolu Night and Eye Cream intensely nourish and firm your skin while you sleep.

A-Oxitive uses our innovative Gradual Release technology, which transforms Pro-Vitamins into pure vitamins when it meets the skin.

These pure vitamins are then slowly released throughout the day for long-lasting antioxidant protection.

FAQ's

We (and everyone else) talk a lot about antioxidants... and we know they are good- but what are they really? Antioxidants help protect the skin from oxidative damage caused by free radicals and environmental aggressors like UV and pollution.

Free radicals are everywhere, and you can be exposed to them from air pollution, UV, blue light from digital screens and poor nutrition. They are even produced as a normal byproduct of your metabolism and part of the ageing process.

But what exactly is a free radical?

A free radical is an unstable molecule with unpaired electrons which go scavenging into the deeper layers of our skin searching for other electrons they can bond with to become whole. Once a free radical steals an electron from a molecule, then that molecule becomes unstable and in turn steals an electron from yet another molecule. This chain reaction of electron theft can eventually disrupt and damage the whole cell.

This is where antioxidants come in. They can donate an electron to stop the free radical chain reaction. Plus, antioxidants support each other- for example, Vitamin C and Vitamin E love to hang out and work in synergy, regenerating each other after neutralising the free radicals- talk about double-teaming against cell damage! This is why you will very often find antioxidants formulated together in skincare.

For women, getting older can be a public affair- women’s age is under constant scrutiny in the media and advertising which generally only focusses on how much we have aged and changed physically from our younger selves. We keep our bodies healthy as we age- to feel strong, increase our energy levels and maintain our wellbeing – so why not do this for our skin as well? An approach to anti-ageing should be holistic!

Our top tips:

  • Moisturise regularly - dry skin is more likely to show fine lines and wrinkles - moisturiser may just be one of the most effective anti-ageing products you can invest in, along with sunscreen of course!
  • Eat healthy foods that nourish your body.
  • Get enough sleep. Sleep is your body’s chance to rejuvenate and that includes your skin.
  • Most importantly, care for your skin gently– age-related dryness and sensitivity will be further exacerbated by skin irritants.

Skin is just skin right? Not quite- especially when it comes to the area around our eyes. Squinting and constant movement of the eyes may accelerate the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and fluids can build up. The skin around the eyes is often quicker to show age and fatigue as it is thinner, more fragile, and prone to dryness which is why a dedicated eye cream can be an effective addition to your routine especially if there are specific issues you would like to target. Dark circles, fine lines, or puffiness are all common complaints!
