"This new super-drink for skin will feel like manna from heaven for anyone who loves the hydration/nutrition/advanced performance factor of serums, without any heavy-ish oil factor." ~ Beauty Shortlist Awards 2019
We've called our serums the “Fairy Godmother” serums because the formulas are so gentle yet incredibly effective that they *do* seem to have a bit of fairy tale magic to them. They're ultra-light and water-based so you barely feel them on your skin, but over time the effects they can have on your skin are magical.
How this fairy godmother can help mature skin
As you get older a few things start to happen to your skin - usually fine lines, wrinkles, dryness and the odd age spot. Ever wondered why?
Beneath your skin’s surface it has a lot to do with our old friends, Collagen and Elastin. Imagine that collagen and elastin are like your skin’s building blocks, making your skin strong, firm and plump. Up until you hit your mid-20’s your body is a collagen-producing powerhouse.
But as you move into your 30’s and spend more time getting wiser on this magnificent planet, your body produces about 1-2% LESS collagen every year and your skin’s structure is compromised. Just like the walls of a house starting to weaken, your skin starts to lose elasticity and firmness and fine lines and wrinkles start to appear.
Then up on your skin’s surface there’s some other stuff going on too. Production of sebum (your skin’s natural oil) is slowing down, so you might notice your skin which was once oily or normal is now on the dry side because it’s not very good at keeping moisture in anymore.
Not only that, but chances are that over the years the environment has probably been taking its toll on your skin too and can cause things like pigmentation and age spots.
We’ll be the first ones to jump up and down chanting “You’re beautiful just the way you are!!!!!” *but* we still want to make you feel amazing in your own skin. And we’ve had so many requests for this serum that we couldn’t say no.
The Fairy Godmother Serum #1 has been created for those of us who would like to take a few steps to slow down those changes that happen as you age.
It’s a special potion that is overflowing with the most effective, gentle, natural actives that we could find to help with the challenges you face as you mature. This serum nurtures your skin and delivers everything it needs to brighten and boost your skins appearance.
"A dream serum for those who prefer a lighter style serum that still works hard, delivers serious hydration and is powered by plants - definitely one for the "must-try" list!" ~ Beauty Shortlist Awards 2019
The magical ingredients
On their own each of these ingredients is a star, but together they create a bit of magic that over time can transform mature skin. Dry skin becomes moist. Fine lines are visibly decreased. Dark spots and pigmentation look more even toned.
Vitamin C (Ascorbyl Glucoside) – a very stable form of vitamin C that is used gradually by your skin, enhancing its results. It brightens and evens skin tone, acts as a powerful defense against environmental pollutants, reduces the appearance of wrinkles and increases moisture.
Glycogen – a sugar protein that will boost moisture in your skin like you wouldn’t believe, and it works with your skin’s own hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin to make your skin look firmer.
Hyaluronic Acid – the hydration superstar that delivers incredible amounts of hydration to your skin, helping it look fuller and plumper and reducing the appearance of fine lines.
Native Kakadu Plum Extract – this uniquely extracted Australian native extract delivers a potent range of phyto-actives for skin repair and conditioning, helping reduce the appearance of UV damage, dark spots, and other signs of ageing. It has a natural lightening effect on your skin.
MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) – is the essential nutrient sulphur. It helps to soften, smooth and brighten your complexion and acts as a delivery system, assisting the other active ingredients in penetrating deeper into your skin.
Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 – Say hello to plump, petal soft skin! This magical peptide has a Botox-like effect. It smooths out roughness and wrinkles for smoother radiant looking skin.
Arginine – This special amino acid is an essential building block for good skin. It increases hydration, has the potential to support collagen creation, and assists in faster skin regeneration.
