Why Complete Skin’s range of skincare products is different.
Find out our hero ingredients that make our range different, and for the right reasons.
Complete Skin's own range of skincare is different because we started with you, the client, in mind.
We have seen lots of people react to other skincare formulations, from simple rashes to full-blown allergic reactions, mostly due to the preservatives and less than kind ingredients. So, we built our range from the bottom up, starting with fewer preservatives!
We then looked at the available ingredients and the evidence for these, combining those that are complementary and ph balanced.
The result: low preservative, gentle skincare products suitable for acne-prone skin and rosacea, with the added bonus of sun protection.
Sun protection is a vital for all skincare products and has considerable benefits for reducing the exposure of your skin to harmful UV rays that can cause cancer, premature ageing, skin dullness and pigmentation – approximately 80% of facial ageing is due to sun exposure.
Nicotinamide (Vitamin B3) – Cancer Council NSW has proved that nicotinamide, either as a topical lotion or a daily table, is highly effective in providing immune protection. Nicotinamide does this by replenishing cellular energy, which also enables faster and more efficient DNA repair following sun exposure. It may also help to reduce acne and rosacea due to its anti-inflammatory properties.
Sodium Pyroglutamic Acid (PCA) – A naturally occurring component of the human skin, sodium PCA moisturiser, hydrates and maintains healthy skin. Hygroscopic properties attract moisture from the air and help bind that moisture to our skin’s cells. Although our skin naturally contains PCA, as we age, these levels drop, Sodium PCA is important in preventing our skin cells from losing water and drying out.
Kakadu Plum – Identified as the highest recorded natural source of Vitamin C, Kakadu Plum is a potent antioxidant, reducing the signs of aging. Kakadu Plum is great for every skin type, particularly those with blemish prone skin as Vitamin C can help soothe and brighten the skin to help you achieve a glowing appearance.
Cucumber – Cucumber softens, soothes and hydrates the skin, whilst leaving a cooling effect. A good source of Vitamins A, C and K, this ingredient promotes healthy skin and is a very gentle ingredient that is suitable for use with all skin types, helping to calm irritation and revitalise the skin.
Squalane – Equivalent to human sebum, squalane soothes and moisturises, leaving a silky, non-greasy feeling on the skin. Squalane is a strong natural antioxidant that is able to penetrate into the natural lipids of the skin, hydrating all skin types even for various skin conditions.
Centella Asiatica (Gotu Kola) – A medicinal herb, it is recommended for the treatment of various skin conditions as it soothes, repairs and promotes healthy skin. An anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, it has been used as a medicinal herb for thousands of years in India to prevent ageing.
