Delay the visible effects of time and boost the appearance of skin’s resilience and firmness with Ascorbic Acid (pure Vitamin C). Recently launched, the Ultra C Firming Serum is an excellent addition to your skincare regime if you are looking to tackle the signs of premature skin aging and address a loss of firmness in the skin. This age-defying serum contains two powerful peptides, (MicroEllastin® & MicroCollagen) and Ascorbic Acid (Pure Vitamin C) to help promote supple looking skin.

 

How does Vitamin C benefit the skin?

It fights free radicals

Our skin is exposed to free radicals daily, in the form of sunlight, cigarette smoke and even the air we breathe. They are unstable molecules that can cause damage to the skin. These free radicals attack the healthy skin cells and over time, this damage accumulates and expresses itself visibly as signs of premature ageing including loss of skin elasticity. We call this ‘oxidative stress’. Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) helps provide firmer, looking skin.

Who can use Ultra C Firming Serum?

The Ultra C Firming Serum is suitable for those with normal, dry or oily skin types. It is recommended to apply it to the face and neck in the morning on alternate days, gradually building to daily use as tolerated. Be sure to apply your Ultraceuticals SPF over the top of it every morning, ensuring to reapply every two hours for maximum sun protection.

The Ultra C Firming Serum is a corrective serum that leaves skin looking revitalised, healthy, and youthful.

Keep blemishes at bay with the brand new Yon-KA SOS Spot Roll-on.  We all know just how quickly a pesky blemish can appear from nowhere.  This on-the-go targeted treatment is designed to give visible results within 24 hours.  It also sanitises, purifies and soothes the skin too. The ultra-precise applicator means that you can apply the product directly to the blemish and allow it to start working right away.

Yon-Ka SOS Spot Roll-on formula

The formula contains 95% natural, powerful ingredients including Ichthyol which targets acne-causing germs and purifies the skin thanks to its anti-inflammatory and bactericidal properties.  Yon-Ka SOS Spot Roll-on also contains Postbiotic (lactic acid) which helps to promote healing and prevent further breakouts by creating an optimal balance of the skin’s eco-system.  Calendula & Bisabolol soothe the skin, helping to relieve irritation and give anti-inflammatory benefits which help to remove discomfort.

SOS Spot Roll-on results

We tested the efficacy of SOS Spot Roll-On in a clinical study, with over 90% of participants reporting smoother and clearer skin.  Nine out of ten participants said that it was more effective than their usual treatments, while eight out of ten reported that it limited the appearance of their blemishes.

While SOS Spot Roll-on is perfect for on the go treatment, it also can be used at home as part of your daily skincare routine.  As a part of our commitment to sustainability, Yon-Ka SOS Spot Roll-on comes in a recyclable glass bottle and with a medicine-grade stainless steel ball.  Instead of the instructions being printed on an extra leaflet to go inside the box, they’re printed on the inside of the FSC Box, as we aim to reduce our carbon footprint.

CLEAR CELL CLARIFYING REPAIR CRÈME

No one is completely immune from skin blemishes since they can be caused by aging, sun damage, scars, or environmental toxins – not just being a teenager! Over time, build-up in your pores can cause a dull complexion that lacks luster. Our CLEAR CELL clarifying repair creme can help reverse the appearance of blemishes while also brightening overall skin tone.

Hair loss and thinning can be a big concern for many individuals. On average 85% of men will see significant hair thinning by the time they are 50. There are so many contributing factors to hair loss, it can be your environment, genetics, stress, illness, pregnancy, diet, hair abuse or poor nutrition. If you’ve noticed your hair had change over the last few years and your hair is becoming a lot thinner this may be stress related. Stress causes an inflammatory response internally and can throw your hormones off and raise cortisol levels and this can affect the growth phase of the hair cycle. Products containing ingredients such as adaptogens can help to lower the heightened cortisol and then in turn allow for a better environment for hair to grow. Adaptogens are technically herbs and spices that help to regulate cortisol in the body.

The first product created to target hair loss is the Deeply rooted hair growth Supplement. This is designed to fuel the scalp with essential nutrients to promote hair growth, while also nourishing the hair. It also has a combination of adaptogens to regulate the cortisol levels. It has 5 patented ingredients and is plant based so no side effects and is safe to take consistently.

Recently, we have added to this line to create a 360-degree approach to hair health. The first step to any good program is cleansing, this is vital to create a better environment on the scaly for absorption.  The Deeply Rooted exfoliating hair cleanser is designed to gently exfoliate the scalp and help remove any build up of product or dead skin that may be interfering with your hair growth. After cleanser they have designed an intense nourishing hydrator to replenish any moisture lost from the hair. This leaves the hair soft, nourished and hydrated. The next step in this routine is the cellular restoring treatment. This is a hair serum that can be directly applied to wet or dry hair. Application needs to be directly on the scalp and massaged in daily for best results. This is a blend of highly potent plant-based ingredients to reduce dryness of the scalp and minimise hair fall out. This serum stimulates hair growth three times faster and reduces hair loss.

This system is based on the philosophy of Nourishing from the inside with Deeply Rooted hair supplement. Exfoliate with the Shampoo to remove build up of dead skin and product. Nourish the hair with the conditioner and create healthier shiner hair. Grow with the hair growth serum by stimulating the scalp and creating a more nourished environment for hair to grow.

What is RVR90?

RVR90 is an abbreviation of Real Visible Results in 90 days. We sat down with Michelle Macken Ultraceuticals National Skin Educator to discuss the importance of this campaign. Michelle says “RVR90 is an incredible campaign to transform your client’s skin. As a brand Ultraceuticals’ mission and purpose is to empower everyone we touch around the world with real skincare and life changing results. So, this campaign encompasses our brand’s philosophy. But also, it allows us to celebrate the results that our clients achieve on their 90 day transformational journey.”

Why 90 days?

Michelle explains “On average our skin cells turn over every 30 days. 90 days gives us the opportunity to work with ingredients over a period of 3 Cell Turnover cycles. This will “train” your skin to become accustomed to active ingredients. The RVR90 day skin challenge is also a great way in which the Skin Specialist can continually monitor and apply their clients results.”

How do I get started on RVR90?

It all starts with the skin consultation. Your Skin Expert will thoroughly review your skin and recommend a 90 day homecare plan, customised just for you. They will regularly check your progress and support you in the journey to your best ever skin. The skin expert will assess and discuss all the factors that affect your skin such as diet, exercise, stress levels and current homecare routine. The Skin Expert will recommend some baseline essential products to help strengthen your skin barrier and your first corrective product. These products remain the same throughout your RVR90 program.

As you progress throughout the months your Skin Expert will slowly introduce a second and third active skin product to your routine to help you achieve even better results.  It is recommended that you have skin treatments throughout your journey so that your Skin Expert can review your skin again, and add the best products for maximum results.
