↓ Clever formulations for a minimalist routine
For universal skin
We don't believe in having products dedicated to the face, neck or eye.
The cosmetics industry creates names for products which have the same base and do the same thing - day cream, primer, night cream, moisturiser, serums etc. There is no such thing as a product which is good for one part of your skin and not the other. A good formula does it all.
All skin shares the same everyday needs. For these essentials, we've got you covered with multi-tasking heroes that make an instant difference and work for everyone without overloading the skin.
Less Is More
Products with too many active ingredients that work on different metabolic pathways confuse the skin – it works too hard and cell energy is depleted causing the skin to get tired and give up.
Layering too many products is likely to produce the same result. There is also potential for counteraction and irritation if not paired correctly. Don't play chemist, product formulation is a skill that takes years to master. It is better to ask the skin to do one thing at a time, but to do it well.
Active ingredients for specific skin concerns when used for too long saturate the skin and no longer deliver results. It is good to switch them around to keep the skin stimulated and avoid the plateau effect.
Created by a formulator
Lixirskin was born in our London laboratory where Colette, a doctor in dermo-pharmacy , has created some of the best-selling skin care products for many of the most coveted beauty brands.
"The natural versus synthetic battle is dated - not all chemistry is bad. There are simply good ingredients – safe, effective, sustainable and formulated correctly, and there are bad ingredients – harmful and ineffective. There is a misconception that natural products should contain many botanical extracts which often have little effect. We focus on pure molecules with published clinical results." - Colette
