In the Spotlight: Super 16 Serum

Oskia Super 16 Serum

Renowned for their stellar nutritional skin care, Oskia dedicate themselves to creating the ultimate problem-solving products. Every product is eagerly anticipated, and invariably becomes a bathroom-cabinet fixture – which is why we’re delighted to bring you their heavenly {Super 16 Serum}; a beautiful blue elixir, that combats almost every tell-tale sign of cellular ‘slow down’.

A skin rehabilitative blend of sixteen super nutrients and bio-actives, the star ingredient is Bakuchiol (Ba-Koo-Heel) – derived from Indian Babchi seeds – and lauded as a ground-breaking alternative to Retinol. Used for centuries by traditional Chinese and Indian medical practitioners, it has only relatively recently come to the attention of the beauty industry, and Oskia are among the first to harness its multitudinous anti-ageing, anti-acne and antioxidant capabilities. And unlike its chemical sister-from-another-mister, Bakuchiol mimics much of Retinol’s anti-ageing behaviour without any of its potentially skin-irritating side-effects – so it’s perfect for those who have ‘stressed out’ or easily upset visages.

This unique ingredient possesses powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, and is a proven free radical scavenger – to help normalise problematic complexions, prevent future damage and help reverse existing wear and tear. By limiting the deterioration of elastin and collagen (the ‘threads’ that make up the fabric of skin, and the ‘scaffolding’ that supports it), Bakuchiol – alongside fifteen other skin strengthening vitamins, minerals and botanical extracts (including Crithmum Maritimum, Vitamins C and E, Hyaluronic Acid, MSM and Vitamin A Palmitate) – makes {Super 16 Serum} a must-have weapon in the war against wrinkles, lost lustre and reduced skin resilience.

Oh, and is smells like you’ve buried your face in rose bush. Which is nice.
