CLARA Illuminating Serum

$26.00

Description +

CLARA is a potent, concentrated serum formulated to brighten, strengthen and balance the skin. It addresses everything from uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, redness and dehydration to enlarged pores and oil-overproduction. 

Made with a blend of bio-active phytonutrients, skin-identical ingredients and vitamins (Vitamin C, B3 and B5), Clara is not only capable of tackling the above skin concerns but it also supports the skin's barrier function and stimulates the production of ceramides, collagen and elastin.

Featuring Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate, which is the latest advancement in the green beauty chemistry field. It is obtained from the condensation of Azelaic Acid mixed with glycine allowing the release of all skin benefits of Azelaic Acid but without the drying effect usually associated with this ingredient making this serum perfect for skin prone to redness and dehydration.

Clara serum addresses:

  • Skin hyperpigmentation
  • Uneven skin tone and post inflammatory scars
  • Skin oil-overproduction and enlarged pores
  • Skin redness and inflammation
  • Skin dehydration
  • Supports the skin's barrier function
  • Stimulates the production of ceramides, collagen and elastin

Key Ingredients: 

+ Vitamin C Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate -  A more-stable water-soluble derivative of L-ascorbic acid that is used as an excellent additive in the modern functional whitening cosmetics. It has the same potential as Vitamin C to promote skin collagen synthesis, prevent free radical damage and inhibit melanin. Moreover, magnesium ascorbyl phosphate helps protect the skin from ultraviolet rays and it is not irritating to the skin unlike L-ascorbic acid.

+ Niacinamide (vitamin B3) - Research has shown that niacinamide can help fade hyperpigmentation on the skin. It promotes the production of ceramides and elastin, both vital components of the skin barrier function. This results in a more hydrated, healthy skin that can better defend itself against moisture loss and outside irritants.  Niacinamide also helps regulate and stabilize oil production in the skin.  When applied topically, niacinamide converts into nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), which has potent free-radical fighting antioxidant properties. Topical use of niacinamide has also been shown to decrease skin redness and blotchiness, making it perfect for rosacea prone skin.

+ Glucosamine - A “skin identical ingredient”, meaning it’s found in our skin in the spaces between the cells, and it is used to maintain skin’s barrier abilities and reduce dryness. Studies have shown that N-Acetyl Glucosamine (NAG) can increase collagen production, increase moisture content of the skin, increase skin elasticity, increase exfoliation, and increase the speed of wound healing.

+ Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate - Another ingredient with very well documented skin balancing properties is Azelaic acid. This is a naturally occurring acid found in grains such as barley, wheat, and rye. It has antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and skin tone balancing properties which make it effective in the treatment of skin conditions like acne and rosacea.

+ Turmeric - Used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat a variety of ailments and as a natural skin-enhancing ingredient in the Eastern cultures. Today, many studies show that Curcumin, the active phytonutrient in Turmeric, has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, which helps to reduce acne flare ups, relieve redness, lighten blemishes and provides the skin a bright complexion. Turmeric is also very soothing and excellent ingredient for people with rosacea prone skin.

+ Milk Thistle Extract - Contains Silymarin, which belongs to a range of flavonoids, better known as phytonutrients. Medical research has repeatedly shown that Silymarin has skin whitening properties as it significantly decreases skin melanin level when applied topically, decreases erythema (skin redness) and it has significant anti-inflammatory properties.  Milk Thistle is also reputed to have anti-acne properties, to smooth the appearance of wrinkles and skin roughness and it is an excellent antioxidant.

Licorice - Traditionally used for promotion of wound healing. Licorice root extracts protect the skin against oxidative stress injuries, accelerate wound epithelization, ameliorate remodeling at the wound site, and efficiently reduce the symptoms of atopic dermatitis. Glabridin is the bioactive phytonutrient in Licorice that has many properties potentially beneficial in cosmetic products. It acts as antioxidant, estrogenic, anti-inflammatory, and skin-whitening agent. It displays skin depigmentation activity and is being incorporated in topical products intended specifically for that purpose.

Has a light citrus scent.
