Kristina Holey line - the concept of this Marie Veronique line (in collaboration with celebrated skin care specialist Kristina Holey) is to boost the skin's natural ability to heal itself. The products are cutting-edge and make use of microceutical co-enzymes that kick-start biosynthetic processes, and take care to follow nature’s lipid management systems as closely as possible while at the same time avoiding ingredients like essential oils and microcidal preservatives that can interfere with healthy skin function. The result is products that leave the skin feeling soothed, nourished, and ultimately, healthy.
VIT-C for sensitive/symptomatic/aging skin. New/genius C derivatives deliver nourishment, clear + brighten.
This serum is ideal for all skin types, especially sensitive, sensitized, breakout-prone skin. Skin sensitized to Vitamin C find that tolerance levels improve upon gradual introduction. Next generation derivatives are stable, yet deliver Vitamin C in its active form, l-ascorbic acid. The presence of l-ascorbic acid allows optimal collagen production, and provides antioxidant protection and skin brightening effects. Glutathione and alpha-lipoic acid protect mitochondria, increasing age-delay benefits. The serum is essential oil and microcidal preservative-free, making it safe for even the most allergy-prone, sensitive skin, and can be used day and night.
- Anti-aging by promoting collagen production to reduce formation of wrinkles. Other effects are reduction of hyperpigmentation and age spots, protecting mitochondrial degradation.
- Reducing frequency and severity of breakouts by clearing congested pores.
- Antioxidant and sun protection. Dermatologists recommend using a Vitamin C serum in addition to sunscreen for comprehensive UV protection.
- Moisturizing, Improves water barrier protection.
- This dual purpose serum protects by day and repairs at night, and is safe for use by all skin types.
- A good alternative to Retinol for pregnant women.
