Two products have been added to the iS Clinical range. LiPROTECT SPF 35 is formulated for the delicate lip area and offers broad-spectrum protection while minimising the visible effects of photo damage and pollutants. The treatment also uses vitamin E and coconut oil to help condition lips while elderberry extract and linoleum acid help defend from environmental aggressors. Extreme Protect SPF 40 is an antioxidant-rich, broadspectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen with proprietary Extremozyme technology combined with “all-physical” sunscreen actives to support optimal skin health. It is available in three shades – two tinted and one translucent.
111SKIN has launched a new product designed to tackle the effects of daily mask wearing. Maskne Protection Bio Cellulose Mask covers the bottom half of the face where skin becomes compromised from constant mask wearing and can be used alone or underneath a PPE mask as it adheres to the skin. It contains aloe vera to help alleviate redness and irritation; lactic acid to exfoliate and reduce the appearance of blemishes; cleome gynadra to control sebum and reduce inflammation and hydroxycinnamic acid to combat unhealthy bacteria on the surface as well as the unbalanced cells beneath the skin.
Dr Tijion Esho has partnered with retailer QVC to launch a cosmeceutical lip product line called ESHO. The collection consists of four lip products that have been designed and formulated for lip sculpting, hydration and healing as well as to support the lips of those who have dermal fillers. Coat is for dry, cracked lips; Pause is a peptidebased bio-active formula that reduces the need for frequent cosmetic lip injections by helping maintain a plump appearance; Sculpt is a serum formula billed as a “no needle” solution to achieving volume without invasive treatments; and Drench is a daily hydrating balm containing ultra-nourishing plant-derived actives.
3D Vasculase is the latest device to be launched by equipment supplier 3D Aesthetics. The compact laser device offers advanced thread vein removal to target unwanted veins and broken capillaries. 3D Vasculase works by applying a narrow 980 nm laser beam to target the vein precisely. The red blood cells in the thread veins absorb the laser energy, causing the blood within the vein to heat up, damaging the wall of the vein and causing it to close down and disappear. Just one treatment is required in most cases, and clients can see the vein visibly disappearing during treatment.
Teoxane’s Advanced Perfecting Shield is an antioxidant “perfecting urban shield” designed to hydrate, provide light coverage and give sun protection in one step while also acting as a make-up base. The tinted formula has a “second-skin” texture that boosts radiance in all skin tones for an even and glowing complexion. The product protects the skin from UVA, UVB and environmental factors, unifies the complexion and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, also helping to maintain hydration levels.
Distributor Harpar Grace has unveiled two new products from Codage – Relaxing Oil and Serum N°08 Night Rejuvenation. Relaxing Oil is a blend of moisturising and soothing oils, including lavender and chamomile, combined with cannabidiol (CBD) for anti-stress benefits. Serum N°08 Night Rejuvenation has a serum-in-oil texture, combining the power of eight oils with new Nutri-ElementRetinol+ ,a cocktail of active ingredients including bidens pilosa extract, a natural retinol-like ingredient, that nourishes, protects and repairs, and rosehip oil with carotenoids. The serum targets wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots, loss of firmness and dullness.
