Dermalogica once again, have launched a super-product to help keep the sensitive and delicate eye-area looking healthier and younger. The aim of the eye serum is to help ease and prevent wrinkles, prevent and aid in dehydration and general loss of vitality and elasticity.

With all the factors contributing to aging of our skin including UV rays, environmental irritants, food and product allergies etc. we have to take special care of the eye area. The Ultra Smoothing Eye Serum is specially formulated for individuals who experience skin irritation around the eye area and promises to do just that! What I like about this product is it can be used by anyone for prevention as well as cure this product is ideal for everyone.  Its absorbed very quickly and ideally used in addition to an eye cream

This product will be available in August and retail price will be around R715

Key Ingredients Include:

Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (MAP), a water-soluble form of Vitamin C, which is effective in low concentrations and is stable at a neutral pH. Unlike similar compounds which require a high and potentially irritating level of acidity to be effective, its neutral pH prevents further stinging, redness and sensitization around the eye area.

Hexapeptide—11, derived from yeast, consists of 6 amino acids which firm the skin, help improve elasticity and reduce fine lines. Elasticity restoration is essential to keeping the eye area feeling fresh and looking youthful, since natural muscular movements —blinking alone produces 10,000 movements per day – contribute to long-term wear and loss of tissue volume and firmness.

Many individuals also suffer from puffiness around the eye area, which may occur due to poor lymphatic drainage and may be correlated to lifestyle and environmental sensitization. The serum combats puffiness with its botanical extracts, specifically using two sulfated polysaccharides from Harpoon Weed (Asparagopsis) and Norwegian kelp (Ascophyllum), algae native to Ouessant Island off the Brittany coast of France. These botanicals have been prepared via a patented process to provide this special algal extract, and are combined in the formula with Golden Chamomile (Chrysanthellum indica). In combination, these plant actives help increase the mechanical resistance of the capillaries, preventing leakage of fluids through the capillary walls that can cause puffiness. This firming action is complemented by soothing of the irritation and inflammation which often accompany eye puffiness.

The age fighting and soothing combination of actives are suspended in an Aloe Barbadensis leaf juice that helps soothe skin and cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid for moisture retention and free-radical scavenging; Carrot Root oil with added proVitamin A, completes the formula to help regenerate dry, stressed skin.

UltraSmoothing Eye Serum also features Dermalogica’s exclusive UltraCalming Complex consisting of Oat extracts, Bisabolol, Ginger extract and Red Hogweed, which targets the symptoms of inflammation to help reduce and prevent future sensitization, redness and irritation.

UltraSmoothing Eye Serum will be available in August 2013 and will retail for R715 including VAT
