Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, all the Rejuvaus creams, serums and lotions are cruelty free and leaping bunny certified.
Yes, all Rejuvaus Serums and Moisturisers are certified vegan.
Yes, all Rejuvaus serums, creams, and lotions are gluten-free.
Most other cosmeceutical serums may have one or two active ingredients in one or two ‘categories of action’ which means, ingredients that can transform the skin beyond just surface effects. These ‘actives’ usually occupy only a small percentage of the ingredients in a serum and therefore leaves between 40% and 70% of the bottle to be filled with non-active ingredients.
Often these other ingredients are blocking “fillers” that have a negative impact on the skin and don’t allow absorption of an active ingredient. Rejuvaus has no fillers interfering with absorption, and many ingredients are encapsulated which means they are slowly released and deeply penetrating, to optimise skin.
The majority of ingredients in Rejuvaus are natural, with some safe synthetic versions of ingredients, all products have multiple high-grade actives, combined synergistically in an extremely comprehensive serum that works across at least seven of the eight possible categories of action of cosmetic ingredients.
We recommend buying one of the exfoliant cleansers. Most skin types should then combine together one pump of two of the four serums available. Most common are the Clarify & Renew and ABC Antioxidant serum. These can be used together twice daily.
This combination of these two active serums, used twice-daily contain 56 active ingredients across all seven of the eight categories of action, which cover all skincare needs.
The eighth, and last category of action is included in iSolar Invisible Zinc Lotion. This should be used every morning.
Some people prefer to use our Rich Repair Moisturising Lotion, or Ultralight Antioxidant Lotion as well, and these can be added for extra hydration. These contain many of the same active ingredients.
The other two serums are the Bright & Even Pigment Serum, and the Collagen Growth Factor Peptide Serum. Some people like to use all four serums mixed together both morning and night.
Rejuvaus is very simple and quick regime for completing all your skincare in less than a minute. There is no layering or time delay in waiting for absorption.
After the initial step of cleansing and drying. All serums can be applied by pumping, just one application of each serum (0.2ml), then blend all together mixed on your fingertips, and spread across the face, eyelids, neck, chest and even the backs of your hands and arms.
The serums are very spreadable and cover a wide area. They are quickly absorbed without leaving a greasy sticky film.
Each morning the i • SolarTM Invisible Zinc Lotion can be applied after the Serums.
Some people prefer to use the Rich Repair or Antioxidant Light Moisturiser either once or twice a day as well. If used in the morning, that should be applied before the sunscreen. The sunscreen is a physical (or mineral) sunblock that provides a protective barrier, reflecting the ultraviolet energy off the skin, and does not need to be reapplied, unless washed or rubbed off during the day. It maintains its high SPF throughout the day, providing it is not disturbed.
Yes, all the serums, can be applied together by mixing one pump (only 0.2ml) and applied all over the face, neck and chest as they are so spreadable.
They are formulated to blend synergistically and absorbed deeply, without need for pH adjustment or layering, as with many other forms of Vitamin A or Vitamin B3 or
The only fragrance in Rejuvaus is a small amount (0.25%) of natural lemongrass. This gives a pleasant mild aroma without overpowering the senses and is considered non-sensitising and non-allergic. There are no artificial or synthetic fragrances or harsh preservatives in the Rejuvaus range.
No more than 1 pump of each serum or cream or cleanser is necessary each time. This only amounts to 0.2ml, as the micro-dispensing pump activator is designed to only provide enough product so the product is used sparingly, but is sufficient to be able to be spread over a wide area.
One pump is equal to 0.2 ml of serum or cream which is all that is needed as the formulas are so concentrated.
Any more product is a waste because the skin will not utilise it. As the entire formula consists of pure active ingredients, without passive space occupying fillers, the product is very spreadable over a wide area, immediately absorbed and deeply penetrating.
This makes the bottles very economical, lasting much longer than other less concentrated and less spreadable skincare ranges.
With most people using the serums twice daily, each bottle will last about 2-3 months.
Each bottle is overfilled completely to the top, so as to leave no air gap above the top liquid level. This is to avoid any oxidation and degradation of any of the active ingredients.
So all of the serum bottles, even though marked as 30 mils, are filled to approximately 37 mls.
All the lotion and cream bottles, although marked to 50 mls, contain up to 67 mls.
The amount dispensed out of the micro nozzle dispenser is 0.2ml and one pump is all that is necessary, whether they are used once or twice daily.
Compared to most other dispensing serums and creams, and the supreme spreadability, the smaller amount dispensed with each application allows for much greater value.
The inner bottles / pump dispensers are airless, which means the bottom pushes to the top as the product is dispensed.
The inner bottles have been filled to the maximum, leaving no air gap, which prevents any oxidation and degradation.
Therefore the dispensing pump will only stop extracting product, once it’s completely empty, you can tell by the weight of the bottle.
The outer coating of the inner bottle is opaque, so it does not allow any light through which can compromise the active ingredients.
There are several ingredients that are common to each of the items in the Rejuvaus range.
Every one of the Rejuvaus serums and creams are made to be used as a standalone bottle or in combination with others in the Rejuvaus range.
We have included as comprehensive a list of active ingredients in each bottle to achieve optimum clinical results to improve the skin.
Each bottle has multiple medical grade actives that are proven to be able to produce maximum results on the skin, without side-effects.
There are eight types or categories of action that exist to improve the skin. All of the Rejuvaus products individually have either six or seven of each of these categories or groups of action in each bottle.
They are blended synergistically to provide the optimum results where people can use only one or two bottles due to affordability.
The stronger ingredients that could possibly cause reactivity on the skin, do not do so in the Rejuvaus products, as they are encapsulated and slowly released over a period of 8 to 12 hours, so it does not overwhelm the skin.
Yes, many of the ingredients are in a form which are generally deeply absorbed and slowly released from an encapsulated form.
This allows for a gentle non-irritating delivery across the skin.Due to the absence of some of the more harsh and toxic filling substances, petrochemical and silicon type ingredients, synthetic fragrances, pigments, and toxic preservatives, the products are extremely well tolerated.
Even the most sensitive skin will not react, providing it is introduced slowly, it is not mixed with any other products that may contain any of the adverse ingredients mentioned above, and also that no more than one pump (0.2ml) is used of each product each time.
Rejuvaus products are formulated with a great deal of pure and active ingredients, from at least seven of the eight possible categories or types of skincare function.
These products and ingredients have been used safely on most skin types individuals over many years without creating any adverse effects on the skin.They are certainly quite active, and it is recommended that people with a sensitive skin start slowly by just using the products every second day for the first two weeks and gradually building up to using twice a day.
The many active ingredients in the Rejuvaus range are formulated and blended synergistically with a pH similar to normal skin or in a slow-release encapsulated formulation.
This allows deep penetration into and around the epidermal skin cells. Therefore there is no need for time delay or layering of products and allowing for the acidity or pH level of the skin to be adjusted as is necessary with many other products.
This is especially common with a form of vitamin C (L-Ascorbic acid), which requires a pH adjustment down to a more acid level before application and time for it to be absorbed deeply.
Rejuvaus uses the richest source of Vitamin C from Kakadu Plum, which is not pH dependent on absorption, and is blended synergistically with the encapsulated form of Niacinamide (Vitamin B3).
The Vitamin A found in Rejuvaus products, although extremely potent in the form of 1% Retinaldehyde, is also encapsulated and slowly released into the skin and is not affected by pH levels. It also does not to be need to be applied separately to the other ingredients. It is not a thick cream limiting its absorption or spread.
The Rejuvaus serums are absorbed into the skin quickly and do not leave a sticky or greasy film.
So, after the application of serums, adding moisturising lotions or creams can be done immediately afterwards.
Additional moisturising creams are not necessary in all skin types, as the serums contain a great deal of hydrating, hyaluronic acids, and lipid complexes to absorb water into the deeper tissues and prevent evaporation.
The physical or mineral i • SolarTM Invisible Zinc should be used after all of these to provide a long term reflective and protective barrier.
The total time for the application of the Rejuvaus products is simple, one handed, using the pump applicators and mixed together, and should take less than 2 minutes. Most people find this a very quick and easy regime.
Frequently Asked Questions
No, you are not overloading the skin as you are not putting any harmful or blocking or occlusive ingredients on the skin that could have an adverse effect.
Rejuvaus is free of any of petrochemicals derivatives or blocking silicones, silicones or other synthetic or sensitising, harsh preservatives, astringents, fragrances, pigments, acids and strong alcohols. All of the stronger active ingredients that have been found to cause a build-up or sensitivity in other skincare products, are in an encapsulated or slow-release formulation.
They will not overwhelm the skin or be too much when used together in the same application. In fact, to ensure best results, and to make the application of Rejuvaus quick and easy, we encourage all serums to be used simultaneously mixed together.
This combined application takes only a few seconds, and makes your skin care routine easy and convenient. The ingredients are blended so that they can be used together in one application without reactivity.
These formulations have been used safely on thousands of people of all skin types over many years.Due to the purity of the serums, in the absence of any of the occlusive fillers, these serums are very light and spreadable, absorbed quickly, without leaving a greasy film on the surface of the skin.
Most allergic reactions or sensitivity reactions are due to the petrochemicals, acids and preservatives, fragrances, pigments, and other filling ingredients that are absent in the Rejuvaus formulations.
The great advantage of the Rejuvaus bottles is that they all maintain the integrity of the product in both an airless and lightproof environment.Great precaution is taken when filling the bottles, by overfilling the product so that there is no air gap above the top level of the serums or creams. This means that any preservatives can be reduced to a minimum. All products required by law, a certain amount of preservatives to maintain the integrity and ensure as along an expiry date as possible, to keep the products pure.
The main ingredient acting as both a preservative and a natural fragrance in Rejuvaus, is a small amount (0.25%) of lemongrass.This is usually extremely well tolerated, and although possible, it is extremely rare to cause allergic or sensitivity reactions.
The products are free of sensitising essential oils that can often cause inflammatory reactions. Most importantly, there are none of the petrochemical or strong preservatives required to be used in most other bottles and packaging, that have opening lids or dropper bottles, that are constantly exposed to the air and microbes and fingers, contaminating the product. As Rejuvaus products are free of any synthetic fragrances, perfumes, pigments, this also minimises any chance of adverse reaction.
Also, being free of other synthetic or blocking silicones, irritating strong alcohols and acids, there is usually no inflammatory or adverse reaction on the skin. Using too much of the Rejuvaus serums at one time with each application, can possibly cause an unwanted reaction. However, only one pump (0.2ml) of each serum is recommended and necessary to achieve the optimum results.
As these products are pure and concentrated and free of any of the normal fillers found in our skincare, more than pump is not only a waste, but can be too much for the skin. However, as most of the more active ingredients, such as the Vitamin A Retinaldehyde, the Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide), and the Salicylic Acid (BHA) are encapsulated, and slowly released, they do not cause the common irritation often found in other skincare formulations.
Yes, you can use the Rejuvaus range with the assurance that there are no synthetic or artificial fragrances or perfumes included.
There is a natural lemongrass (0.25%), in each bottle, this serves as a preservative as well as a fragrance, but is extremely well tolerated, and is very rare to cause a sensitivity reaction.
These wholistic formulations are made possible by careful bottling in airless and lightproof bottles, checked by hand, that should not allow oxidation or contamination with microbes as with most other skincare ranges.
Generally, the answer to this is a no, using the Rejuvaus range as recommended.Most skincare reactions, whether a sensitivity, or a true allergic reaction, are due to problems caused by unwanted and unnecessary “filler” ingredients that are added to the formula.
These are not active or positive ingredients that are desirable and ideally should be avoided.Rejuvaus has none of the normal sensitising, common petrochemical derived or silicon type filler ingredients that are found in most skincare products.It is these, as well as synthetic fragrances, pigments, harsh preservatives and stronger acidic or alcohol products that can cause such reactions.
Rejuvaus avoids all of the usual irritants, it is extremely rare to get a reaction or a true allergic sensitivity. We always do caution that for people with a sensitive skin, or a history of reaction to previous skincare, that stop all other skin care before starting Rejuvaus.
Do not use more than one pump of each product at a time and to commence using only every second night and gradually build up to using twice a day, over a period of 2 to 4 weeks. Most people are used to using a great deal more than the equivalent of 0.2 ml (1 pump). This is not necessary, and in fact, a waste, as the Rejuvaus formulations are so pure and concentrated.
As the Rejuvaus products are all bottled in an airless and a light-proof bottle, the products remain active and do not become oxidised, providing the bottle is not opened to the air.
The reason that most of the skin care can cause problems, and requires other fillers and preservatives, is that opening a container and exposing it to air, not only oxidises and spoils the active ingredients quickly, but also allows microbes to enter from the air.
This would cause the products to become rancid and discoloured, and this is why so many strong preservatives are required with that type of packaging. Rejuvaus has been extremely well tolerated over many years and many different skin types without adverse reactions commonly found in skincare.
Frequently Asked Questions
Your recommended regime would be to cleanse your face with one of the exfoliant cleansers- (Gentle Exfoliating AHA Cleanser for sensitive skin or the more oil extracting Deep Exfoliating AHA Cleanser, for normal or oily skin).
Follow this by mixing together and applying one pump of each of Repair & Refine ABC Serum, Bright & Correct Niacinamide Serum, and Clarify & Renew AHA BHA Serum (Morning and Night).
Each morning, apply the i • Solar Invisible Zinc Lotion. If you feel that your skin is still dry, you could add either the Rich Repair Moisturiser, or the Antioxidant Light Moisturiser, either twice daily or at night, as a supplement.
Yes, the i • Solar Protect & Restore Lotion is different to virtually all other sunscreens. It rarely causes any reactivity on the skin due to several factors.
Firstly, it is free of all the normal “chemical” (non-mineral) sunblock ingredients found in most sunscreens.
These are quite reactive, often toxic, petrochemical type ingredients that frequently cause redness irritation and stinging, especially if coming into contact with the eyes. They also cause occlusive build-up on the skin. They also contain many other ingredients that can be irritating or skin blocking or greasy on the skin.
Also, it is free of any of the nasty chemical or synthetic fragrances, harsh preservatives, pigments and other additives that can cause irritation on the skin. There is only a natural lemongrass, that acts as both a natural preservative and a gentle fragrance.
Due to the extremely high level of invisible zinc, combined with titanium dioxide, i . Solar has a high SPF of around 40+.
A physical sunblock provides a reflective barrier which is long-lasting and will be protective until it is either washed off or wiped off. This is opposed to most of the chemical sunscreens, where the chemical actives absorb the ultraviolet radiation and in doing so, the chemicals are used up.
This means that their SPF has dropped significantly, giving insufficient sun protection after an hour and a half or two hours and requires repeated application for proper protection from the sun.
Due to the absence of any of these chemicals or astringents, the Rejuvaus i • Solar Protect & Restore Lotion is safe to be used on all sensitive skin, even young babies, and even around the eyes, as it does not cause stinging.
The i • Solar Protect & Restore Lotion is much more than just a reflective, physical sunblock . It contains 17 additional ingredients that are both reparative and protective to improve skin quality and prevent both ageing and sun damage throughout the day.
Yes, the i. SolarTM Protect & Restore Lotion is safe to also very important to use on the lower and upper eyelids. It is extremely important to use a physical sunblock in these areas of delicate skin, as they are a thin delicate skin and certainly prone to pigmentation and the common dark circles.
As the i . Solar Lotion is free of all the normal petrochemical, sunblock ingredients, as well as any petrochemical or silicon fillers, harsh, preservatives, pigments, and synthetic fragrances. It is non-irritating to use on the eyelids. It is safe to use even on children’s skin due to the absence of these undesirable substances.
It’s SPF (around 50+), is provided by a high amount of pure mineral Zinc, which provides a physical sunblock, together with Titanium Dioxide.
It contains no nanoparticles or possible skin reactive agents. Its only preservative, which serves as a general fragrance as well as a preservative, is natural lemongrass (0.25%), a very small amount. It is packaged in a light-proof and airless pump dispenser to preserve its activity.
By producing such a strong SPF (approximately 50+), it is important to only use one pump for the face and eyelids. This gives adequate spreadability and protection until it is removed by either washing off or wiping off. Unlike most chemical sunblocks, it does not need to be re-applied every 1 1/12 to 2 hours.
Yes, the i . Solar Protect & Restore Lotion is non-sticky and greasy and completely non-comedogenic.
It is free of the usual petrochemicals and the silicon fillers and excessive preservatives, fragrances, pigments and other ingredients that make up the bulk of most other sunscreens ingredients and can block the pores.
It acts like an invisible Zinc and does not leave a white film.
It contains many skin protectors and skin repair ingredients, in the form of Vitamin B, Vitamin C pigment inhibitors, Collagen Peptides, Hyaluronic Acid and a Lipid (L22) complex, that repairs the skin barrier and prevents evaporation. It also contains Pre & Probiotics that help to balance the microbiome.
This formula is designed to wear everyday without blocking pores and doubles as a beautiful primer for your makeup. It is very economical, as only 1 pump from the applicator(0.2ml) is all that is necessary to cover the face and eyelids.
The best moisturiser for a sun damaged and wrinkled skin is Rich Repair Moisturiser Cream. However, if you also have an oily acne prone skin, you may prefer to use the Light Repair Moisturiser Cream.
Both of these are extremely hydrating and moisturising, due to the two types of Hyaluronic Acid and very reparative and corrective for the skin due to the collagen peptides and growth factor ingredients, in addition to the large amount of Encapsulated Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) and the very strong Kakadu Plum (Vitamin C).
Both are also calming, soothing and anti-inflammatory due to the Pre, Pro and Postbiotics, which help to balance the microflora and reduce redness and further pigmentation.
They also help to reduce and balance the pigmentation caused by UV exposure. In addition to using the one of these moisturisers, it is advisable to use some of the corrective serums in the Rejuvaus range, which are very effective against sun damage and pigmentation.
Rejuvaus serums and moisturisers can and should be used twice daily. UV protection is extremely important, every day, even from just natural daylight which will further aggravate sun damage.
We strongly recommend the i . Solar Protect and Restore Lotion, which has an SPF of approx 50+.
The answer is yes of course you can. Sunscreens should go on last thing over the top of your serums and moisturiser creams, after cleansing.
However, be aware that most sunscreens are chemical sunscreens. Chemical sunscreens lose most of the SPF protection after an hour and a half or two hours.
The chemicals are effective until they are used up by absorbing the ultraviolet energy and their SPF protection gradually reduces.
The problem with this is that they do not give you protection for long enough, and its difficult for most people to reapply sunscreen every two hours.
We thoroughly recommend that everyone uses the Rejuvaus I . Solar sunscreen, because of the fact that it is a very high SPF and is long-term protector. This is because it has had such a high concentration of invisible zinc and titanium dioxide.
These do not lose their SPF until they are wiped off or washed off later in the day or evening.
This is because they are a physical (mineral) sunscreen, and have such a high percentage of zinc and titanium dioxide that forms a protective barrier.
It reflects or pushes the ultraviolet energy away from the skin, rather than absorbing it. It maintains this reflective barrier until removed.
Therefore, it is not necessary to reapply. There are also another other great advantages of using this I . Solar product as as a sunscreen. It has 19 active ingredients that do a lot more than just protect from sun exposure.
It is extremely hydrating and moisturising. It contains a lot of strong skin protectors and skin repair ingredients, in the form of Vitamin B3, Vitamin C pigment inhibitors, collagen peptides, hyaluronic acid and a lipid (L22) complex, that repairs the skin barrier and prevents evaporation.
It also has calming anti-inflammatory agents and other antioxidants that help to repair free radical damage. It also has Pre, Pro and Postbiotics, that also help to balance the microbiome and also help to prevent inflammation and pigmentation. The other advantage of this product is, it has no petrochemical or silicon-based, skin blockers, or any other ingredients, including harsh, preservatives, pigments, or other chemicals that can cause irritation, and block the pores.
Most of the other sunscreens on the market to contain these and these are best avoided.
Your recommended regime would be to thoroughly cleanse your skin with the Deep Exfoliating AHA Cleanser morning and night.
Follow this by applying both the Clarify and Renew AHA/BHA Serum and the Repair & Refine ABC serums mixed together in the one application.
If your skin is also pigmented where previous acne has caused skin discolouration, you should also combine these with the Bright & Correct Niacinamide Serum.
Each morning, use the i . Solar Protect & Restore Lotion to further Repair and Protect your skin from damage. If you feel, you need additional moisturisation on top of these other hydrators and moisturises, you could use the Antioxidant Light Moisturiser.
For good results, it is important to use these Rejuvaus products by themselves and not mix with other skincare brands, that may limit the results, as other brands may contain skin blocking and occlusive ingredients.
Yes, you can and should use a protective sunscreen as with this type of skin, you are probably more sensitive to sun damage.
The Rejuvaus i . Solar Protect & Restore Lotion is non comedogenic, being completely non-occlusive with the absence of the normal skin care fillers and synthetic petrochemicals found in most sunscreens.
As the i • Solar Protect & Restore Lotion is combined with 17 other active ingredients that are anti-inflammatory, anti-pigment, and reparative, this is an important treatment to improve your type of skin and refine your pores, repair skin damage and prevent inflammation and pigmentation.
Clarify and Renew AHA BHA Serum in the Rejuvaus range does not cause stripping or dryness or irritation on the skin, despite having a high concentration of 15% encapsulated Salicylic Acid, as well as several “leave-on” AHA exfoliating natural fruit acids and a 1% solution of non-encapsulated Salicylic Acid.
The reason for this is that the encapsulation process permits a gradual and slow release of the BHA Salicylic Acid over an 8 to 12 hour period, so there is not a sudden release of this very active exfoliant ingredient.
The serum has significant hydration effects, containing both types of Hyaluronic Acids, that absorb water or draw water into the fluid around the cells and into the cells but also the important L-22 Lipid Complex, which helps to repair the skin barrier of fatty acids and prevents evaporation of water from the skin.
It also contains many calming and soothing anti-inflammatory, anti-infective agents, including Pre, Pro and Postbiotics. These allow the skin to remain healthy without drying or stripping the skin, as straight salicylic acid (BHA‘s) do, in most other skincare products.
The Rejuvaus Clarifying Serum is extremely important in separating the bonds, binding and entrapping the dead cells on the surface of the skin and allowing them to exfoliate gently and naturally.
Most cleansers are unable to free this dead cell layer, as they do not contain enough exfoliants. It is only by using a “leave-on” Salicylic Acid, that exfoliation can be successful in preventing the build-up of this blocking or entrapment layer.
Most scrubs are irritating and do not adequately free this entrapment layer. Nor do the time-consuming masks, commonly used.
With this Rejuvaus serum, slow and gentle exfoliation occurs gradually throughout the day and night, with twice daily use.
This is so important as this entrapment layer traps oil and pigment, and the dead cells are a perfect medium for infection growth, and thus imbalance of the microbiome.
With efficient thinning of this blocking layer, all the active ingredients in the Rejuvaus serums are then able to penetrate more effectively and deeper to where they are needed.
The BHAs and AHAs found in the Clarifying Serum are an extremely important part of the Rejuvaus range and should be used by each and every person.
People with very sensitive skin should commence slowly, using it only 2nd nightly and then gradually increasing to every night after 2 weeks and then to twice daily.
This is important, as our skin surface cells die every hour of the day and night and need constant but gradual exfoliation to prevent a build-up of this entrapment blocking layer.
In the Rejuvaus serums, these exfoliating ingredients are combined synergistically with many other ingredients to provide maximum effectiveness to improve large pores, moisturise, calm, protect and repair the complexion, due to all the other powerful ingredients, blended synergistically to give maximum effect.
Vitamin A is one of the most important ingredients that can be used on any skin type to protect and repair and improve the skin complexion.
The problem with most Vitamin A ingredients in various skincare formulations, is that it can be very reactive, inflammatory and irritating, reducing its frequency of application to several times a week.
Most formulations contain Vitamin A in the form of Retinol or lower strength Retinol derivatives. Prescription Vitamin A is also available in the form of Retinoic Acid (Tretinoin, Stieva-A).
These applications need to be limited, often to only 2 to 3 nights per week. This is due to an inflammatory or reddening reaction on the skin, as well as dryness and peeling, if over used. Usually, the stronger the form of Vitamin A, the more frequently this is found, severely restricting its usefulness.
Vitamin A in Rejuvaus is in the form of slow-release, encapsulated Retinaldehyde (Retinal). This is the strongest form of vitamin A, equivalent in strength to prescription Vitamin A.
However, in this slow-release, encapsulated form it is both is well tolerated, and allows deeper, penetration to be much more effective than Retinol or the weaker Retinyl derivatives.
The encapsulated Retinaldehyde is 1%, which is significantly much more than other common cosmeceutical skincare brands, that usually restrict the percentage to 0.05% and not encapsulated. So, the Rejuvaus Vitamin A is much stronger.
This encapsulation process is both very therapeutic, in the sense that it allows slow-release and deep penetration gradually over a period of 8 to 12 hours. This minimises any possible redness, irritation, inflammation, or dryness and peeling. It is released slowly, as the skin actually needs it. It does not overwhelm the skin like other forms of vitamin A, that are limited in their use.
So, why limit the use of the most important main ingredient, proven to have so many skin benefits, to only a few nights per week, when you can use the strongest for of active Vitamin A every morning and night?
Furthermore, it can be combined safely and therefore applied simultaneously with the strongest form of Vitamin B (Niacinamide-Vitamin B3), also in a high percentage, but in a slow-release encapsulated form. It is also combined with the strongest and richest form of non-irritating Vitamin C (Kakadu plum) , and in fact, another 30 active ingredients combined in the Rejuvaus Repair & Refine ABC Serum.
Rejuvaus Serums are much more comprehensive and effective at improving skin complexion.
Rejuvaus uses an “encapsulation” form of Vitamin A, called Retinaldehyde (Retinal), and in a strong 1% concentration. This is an extremely strong form of Vitamin A, equivalent in strength to Stieva-A, Tretinoin or prescription strength Vitamin A.
Stieva-A and Tretinoin are forms of Retinoic Acid, which is considered to be the strongest form of Vitamin A, but poorly tolerated.
Because of this, most people can only use it two or three nights a week, and even so, it can cause redness and dryness and peeling of the skin. Vitamin A is by far, the most proven effective single ingredient that can be used to repair and improve skin quality.
So, it is a pity to use this ingredient, so seldom during the week when the equivalent strength Retinaldehyde can be used twice daily. (14 times a week), to achieve optimal improvement without causing the same side-effects.
One of its great advantages, being encapsulated, allows it to be released slowly over a period of 8 to 12 hours and not causing the normal inflammatory or irritating and drying side-effects, normally found with strong Vitamin A ingredients. Furthermore, it does not cause the same sun sensitivity as straight Retinoic Acid, so it can be used both morning and night.
Also, very importantly, encapsulated Retinaldehyde cannot be found in the bloodstream after use, and could be considered safe to use in pregnancy. This is not the case, with the other forms of Vitamin A, Retinoic Acid, or Retinol, or the various weaker Retinyl derivatives.
There are multiple reasons why using slow-release and deeply penetrating, encapsulated Retinaldehyde in a 1% concentration, is a great advantage with Rejuvaus compared to most other skincare products.
In the Rejuvaus serums and moisturiser, it is combined synergistically with many other ingredients to provide maximum effectiveness of this strong Vitamin A, with the added value of all the other powerful ingredients.
Rejuvaus Repair & Refine ABC Serum contains 1% Retinaldehyde, combined with 32 other ingredients and is an extremely effective and strong form of Vitamin A. It is well tolerated in virtually all skin types.
This product has been used on thousands of people over many years and is found not cause any skin reaction and produces very effective improvement on the skin complexion.
It does not cause dryness, redness, sensitivity, or inflammation because of the slow release from encapsulation. This allows gradual release of this Retinaldehyde, slowly over an 8-to-12-hour period.
The recommendation is to be used twice daily for maximum effect and this is extremely well tolerated by most people. The other forms of non-encapsulated retinaldehyde are still found to cause an inflammatory reaction and dryness on the skin, and therefore other forms of retinaldehyde (in alternate skincare brands), are sometimes still poorly tolerated.
This is why their dosage is so limited. In the Rejuvaus serums, it is combined synergistically with many other ingredients to provide maximum effectiveness of this strong Vitamin A.
Exposure of the skin to sunlight (daylight), is one of the most ageing and damaging factors affecting our skin complexion. It is important to note that you do not need to be in ‘direct’ sunlight, even indirect exposure to daylight is exposure to UV.
It is important to note that ultraviolet (UV) energy penetrates through glass.
Therefore, even being behind a glass barrier, such as in the car, or at home, or at work near a window, or even under an awning, or a hat doesn’t give us complete protection from UV exposure.
There are some skincare ingredients that increase sensitivity to ultraviolet radiation and must only be used at night time. This mainly relates to the strong Vitamin A ingredients found in many skincare products. Most of these should only be used at night time and not in the morning, even with the sunscreen.
Rejuvaus, however, uses a form of Vitamin A called Retinaldehyde in a slow-release ‘encapsulated’ form that does not increase photo sensitivity to sunlight or daylight.
Therefore, it is safe to use morning and night, and this is important as Vitamin A is probably the most important single active skincare ingredient that we can use.
It is advisable to use the Repair & Refine ABC Serum both morning and night, with its strong but non-reactive encapsulated Vitamin A, together with the i . Solar Repair & Protect moisturiser every day. However, it is still important to always apply adequate amounts physical (mineral) sunblock, containing high amounts of ‘invisible’ zinc and titanium dioxide.
These mineral particles on the skin reflect the ultraviolet radiation away from the skin and maintain a protective barrier until they are washed off or wiped off.
Most other non-physical sunblocks or 'chemical' sunscreens need to be re-applied multiple times a day, as their SPF protection drops too low and gives negligible protection after 1 to 2 hours.
Rejuvaus contains the most powerful form of Vitamin B, Vitamin B3, or Niacinamide. It is in a very strong, slow-release, encapsulated form, to prevent the commonly occurring Niacinamide “flair“, found with other forms of non-encapsulated Niacinamide.
Even though the Rejuvaus range contains such a high percentage of encapsulated Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), in a 5% or 10% concentration in most of the serums and creams, due to its non-irritating and inflammatory tolerability, it does not cause a build-up and can safely be used mixed together with several of the other products, that also containing similar amounts of Niacinamide.
In the Rejuvaus serums and moisturisers, it is combined synergistically with many other ingredients to provide maximum effectiveness of this strong Vitamin B3, with the added value of all the other powerful ingredients.
Other forms of Vitamin B include Vitamin B5 (Panthenol) in many serums. This is a much less effective form of Vitamin B abd acts mainly as an emollient and calming agent.
The Rejuvaus range of serums and creams contain either 5% or 10% “encapsulated” Niacinamide. This encapsulation process allows a gradual and slow-release of the active Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide), over an 8 to 12 hour period.
For this reason, the typical Niacinamide "flair”, often found with straight Niacinamide, is avoided.
For this reason, also, it is safe and not irritating to use several of the bottles together in the Rejuvaus range that also contain Niacinamide. It does not build-up or overload the skin in practice and provides all the benefits of Niacinamide, without any of the side-effects found in other skincare brands that use non-encapsulated Vitamin B3.
In the Rejuvaus serums and moisturiser, it is combined synergistically with many other ingredients to provide maximum effectiveness of this strong Vitamin B, with the added value of all the other powerful ingredients
Vitamin C is one of the most important active ingredients that can be used to improve skin quality and complexion appearance. Most skincare products have a relatively weak or low strength form of Vitamin C, that does provide some improvement but is limited.
Rejuvaus contains the strongest and richest form of Vitamin C in the form of Kakadu Plum (Super-Ox C).
Some alternate skincare brands have a form of Vitamin C called L-Ascorbic Acid. This is a good strong form of Vitamin C, but is acidic and can be very irritating and inflammatory for many people and therefore limited in use, due to redness and irritation.
Furthermore, it is poorly absorbed due to its pH or acidity. To ensure maximum penetration, requires it to be applied separately from their other skincare ingredients, and after initially applying an acid to reduce the acidity or pH of the skin. The normal pH of our skin is 6.2 – 6.4. To permit deeper penetration of this form of Vitamin C, the pH needs to be lowered to 2.2 – 2.4.
This is usually not adhered to buy most users, and therefore it does not get absorbed deeply enough to get the maximum benefit of this form of Vitamin C.
Also, it is time-consuming and inefficient to have to layer certain skin care ingredients separately over a long period of time. This makes skin care inconvenient and a chore and reduces compliance, and therefore optimal improvement in the complexion.
There are also other forms of Vitamin C commonly used in many of the cosmeceutical brands, known as Vitamin C derivatives. These are forms of Vitamin C of lesser strength and effectiveness. They include Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate and Ethyl Ascorbic Acid. The problem with these types of vitamin C is that they also can cause redness and inflammation and some people get acne breakouts.
The form of Vitamin C in all the Rejuvaus serum and moisturiser, is in the form of the natural Kakadu Plum. This is in fact, the richest and strongest form of Vitamin C anywhere in the world.
It is extremely well tolerated and deeply absorbed. It is not acidic and irritating to the skin. It penetrates deeply without requiring to be used separately or layered from other skincare ingredient applications. Kakadu Plum can be used on all skin types, including inflamed and acne, skin without causing the irritation.
This is very different to all the other forms of Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic acid and the other lesser strength Vitamin C derivative ingredients).
In the Rejuvaus serums and moisturiser, it is combined synergistically with many other ingredients to provide maximum effectiveness of this strong Vitamin C, with the added value of all the other powerful ingredients.
The form of Vitamin C in all the Rejuvaus moisturisers and serums is Kakadu Plum (Super-Ox C). This is extremely well tolerated, and non-irritating. It is suitable for all skin types, including oily and acneic skins, where other forms of Vitamin C are poorly tolerated and often causes skin reactions, irritation and inflammation.
It is not acidic like the commonly used L-Ascorbic Acid used in many of the other skincare ranges. Even though most of the bottles contain either 5% or 10% Kakadu Plum as the form of Vitamin C, it does not overload the skin or increase reactivity by using several of these creams or serums applied at the same time. Kakadu Plum is considered the richest form of Vitamin C.
It is combined safely with many other active ingredients including slow-release Encapsulated Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide), and even Encapsulated Vitamin A (Retinaldehyde 1%) and many other active ingredients, without altering its tolerability and efficacy. Also, it is deeply penetrating and maximises, the benefits and features of Vitamin C.
Unlike L-Ascorbic Acid, which is poorly absorbed in the typical pH of the skin, it does not need to be layered separately from other skincare ingredients. To allow deeper absorption of this Vitamin C acid, it is necessary to first apply a topical acid prior, and then wait to add the L-Ascorbic Acid.
There are many other weaker forms of Vitamin C derivatives used in most skincare brands that have much less positive effects on improving skin complexion than the Rejuvaus strong formulation with Kakadu Plum. These also often cause inflammation and acne breakouts, not found with Kakadu Plum.
So, there are many benefits in using this form of active Vitamin C in all of the Rejuvaus creams and serums.
Rejuvaus skincare has not only the Normal Sodium Hyaluronate (Na Hyaluronate, which is otherwise known as Normal Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid), but it also has the smaller particle size ‘Low Molecular Weight’ Hyaluronic Acid, (also called Hydrolysed Hyaluronic Acid).
The advantage of this second form is that it penetrates deeper and absorbs water also into the fluid around the cells, and through the cell membrane into the cells themselves, to plump up and hydrate the deeper areas of the epidermal skin. This is a huge advantage for several reasons.
Firstly, Normal Hyaluronate or Hyaluronic Acid can sometimes cause dryness, the opposite of what is expected, due to drawing water from the deeper layers of the epidermis into the superficial layers, and then evaporating away.
Many people have a damaged skin barrier, causing leaking or evaporation of water from the surface. This leads to a paradoxical drying of the skin, rather than hydration or moisturising. Rejuvaus has a well-balanced formulation of both types of Hyaluronic Acid, preventing any drying and maximising the hydration effect.
After all, moisturisation of the skin is really drawing water in and retaining water around the cells and within the cells, as well as preventing evaporation from a damage skin barrier on the surface.
The Hydrolysed or Low Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid is not as sticky in feel as normal Sodium Hyaluronate and has a silkier and more spreadable feel about the serum. Also, this form of Hydrolysed Hyaluronic Acid helps to repair and prevent free radical damage and helps with the protection of the skin microbiome.
In the Rejuvaus serums and moisturisers, it is combined synergistically with many other ingredients to provide maximum effectiveness of these Hyaluronic Acid ingredients, together with the added value of all the other powerful ingredients.
The Rejuvaus formulations all incorporate two different formulations of powerful Pre, Pro and Postbiotics in each of the serums and moisturiser.
These serve many functions in the skin in repairing and maintaining a normal, well balanced and healthy Microbiome or Microflora.
The skin Microbiome on the surface of the skin serves an important function in maintaining the delicate balance of the various types of microorganisms that are required for a healthy skin complexion.
Without a well-balanced layer of these micro organisms, any overgrowth of one, or other of the components leads to infective reactions, causing redness and inflammation, and subsequent pigmentation concerns as well.
Also there will be problems with maintaining a healthy water balance, causing evaporation and dryness from the skin through a damaged skin barrier.
These products also help to prevent and repair free radical damage caused by environmental exposure and sun damage. So, just as an imbalance of the internal “gut microflora” can lead to problems with absorption of nutrients from our diet and organ problems with our health including the deeper skin layers, any imbalance of the Microbiome on the surface of the skin can affect many aspects of our complexion and skin ageing.
The reason for topically applying these Pre, Pro, and Postbiotics is that the surface layer of the skin does not get any new blood supply or nutrients from our diet, and therefore requires a topical application to create this harmony and balance.
These “biotics” are natural products that help to calm and soothe the skin, as well as protect and repair the skin, and do not build up to cause any problems, despite being present, in all our serums and creams.
All Rejuvaus moisturisers and serums are carefully formulated to blend synergistically with multiple active ingredients, including these biotics, without causing any overload or toxicity to the skin.They have all been used in thousands of people over many years and have proven to be extremely well tolerated and effective.
The Rejuvaus range of serums and moisturiser creams are carefully formulated to contain multiple active ingredients all blended together so that they can penetrate deeply into the skin without being trapped in the surface compressed or dead cell layer, as found with many other skincare products.
Collagen Peptides and Growth Factors are most effective in the deeper layers of the epidermis. The epidermal cells are not provided with new nutrients from the diet once formed in the basal layer.
So, deep penetration and absorption is vitally important to obtain maximum benefit to the cells where they are still healthy and recently produced. In many skincare ranges, active ingredients like this are unable to penetrate deeply to get past the entrapment or blocked area on the surface of the skin, and therefore can accumulation or build-up, causing skin overload.
The opposite is the case with Rejuvaus, as all the active serums and creams are blended together and formulated to maximise the deep penetration and preservation of these active ingredient, so that can be utilised by the skin cells.
There is no build-up or overload of the skin.
These products have been used successfully without any side-effects in producing excellent complexion improvement by many thousands of people for many years They are both natural and active and produce real skin complexion improvement without any side-effects.
They have none of the blocking fillers or harsh petrochemicals or preservatives or silicon fillers that many skincare ranges have problems with.
Rejuvaus creams and serums are different from most skincare brands on the market in that they have multiple truly active ingredients, covering many categories of action of the skin. These include pigment regulation and deposition.
The base layer is where the pigment producing cells (melanin cells) are located. If pigment production is to be regulated, reduced and controlled, then the active pigment inhibiting ingredients need to reach here.
All ingredients are combined synergistically to work together and to be deeply penetrating, so that the active ingredients reach the basal layer of the epidermal skin, where they are most needed.
Most skincare products aren’t capable of reaching deeply into the Basal or stem cell area at the base of the epidermis. This is, usually because of the silicon type and petrochemical ingredients that block their deep absorption.
The active ingredients, if they are to reduce the pigment production, usually work on the chemical pathways involved in this.
The main action is on reducing the amount of enzymes available that are required in the pigment production. These are known as tyrosinase inhibitor’s. The other action, that active skincare ingredients must control, is the transfer and depositions of the this produced pigment into the surface layers of the skin, where it is visible and is stored (keratinocyte layer).
Other ingredients include in the pigment serum, include collagen peptides and both types of hyaluronic acid that hydrate and plump the skin and prevent it drying out. It’s important to note that the Rejuvaus products contain no hydroquinone or hydroquinone derivatives such as Arbutane, Cogentin, or Cojic acid.
These are potentially quite risky ingredients, are found in other pigment inhibitor serums, are commonly associated with rebound hyperpigmentation (increased Pigmentation), or a condition where pigment is driven deeper into the skin, beyond the Epidermal/Dermal Junction and into the Dermal Layer.
The Rejuvaus pigment inhibitors contains multiple active and powerful tyrosinase inhibitor ingredients, as well as a 10% encapsulated Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), the main active that prevents storage of the pigment in this upper layer of the skin.
The other main culprit in producing pigmentation is inflammation of the skin. Rejuvaus has many active anti-inflammatories and antioxidants, but also combines of Pre, Pro and postbiotics that help to balance the skin microflora (Microbiome).
So, the Rejuvaus pigment serums have a much more comprehensive range of multiple active ingredients that act on many pathways in regulation and control of the distribution and deposition of pigment, and also in reversing any free radical damage caused by ultraviolet radiation, which again has an effect on stimulating pigment.
These products are banned other than in tiny quantities, without a prescription in Australia and many countries throughout the world and are important to avoid for long-term use.
New pigment is produced every day of the year no matter what the season= although summer has a higher UV energy.
Therefore, it is important to use pigment inhibitors twice daily. Of course, constant UV protection with a physical or mineral sunblock and thorough, cleansing and exfoliation is required at the same time.
Much of the skincare on the market does not provide long-term UV protection (usually less than two hours) and skin blockage and occlusion can prevent active ingredients from penetrating deeply enough to actually have an affect significantly on pigmentation.
The two exfoliating cleansers in the Rejuvaus range are the Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser, and the Purify Deep Exfoliating Cleanser. These are both gentle lathering, but not foaming cleansers with natural ingredients that are not harsh or drying.
They both contain gentle fruit acid exfoliating ingredients, that successfully and thoroughly cleanse the skin pores, leaving the skin feeling clean and moist, but not dry.
Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser should be used twice daily for more sensitive skin types, and the stronger Deep Exfoliating Cleanser used by most normal skin types, or oily skin types or acne prone skin types.
It has double the amount of these gentle fruit acid plus activated charcoal, which absorbs 40 times its weight in oil extraction, to more thoroughly clean the pores.
It is still gentle and hydrating and not stripping or drying, leaving a fresh “clean” skin surface. Both of these cleanses will leave the skin clean without having to use a separate toner.
Toners can be drying and damaging to the skin due to their acid or alkali content and are not necessary and best avoided.
Both of the Rejuvaus exfoliating AHA Cleansers are gentle, safe and should be used twice daily.
They are not drying or stripping and contain natural fruit acids and anti-inflammatory and soothing and hydrating agents, leaving the skin fresh and clean.
They are both beautifully lathering and contain none of the harsh sulphur foaming agents. They are both excellent at removing makeup, oil and cellular debris in a single clean. They also serve the function of toning the skin but without containing any drying acids or alkali.
The reason that we need to exfoliate and wash away the already separated dead cell layer from the surface is that it is important to prevent further occlusion or entrapment of this debris.
This would lead to overgrowth and imbalance of the microorganisms, causing inflammation and pigment and oil congestion. It is also important to use a “leave-on” gently exfoliating serum with AHAs and BHA to control and regulate the gradual breaking of the underlying dead cell bonds, that cleansers by themselves are unable to free and wash away.
This gradual clearing is very important and preferred to using harsh and drying cleansers less frequently and then using harsh and traumatic physical scrubs to exfoliate and damage the delicate skin surface.
The Rejuvaus Clarifying and Hydrating BHA AHA Serum is recommended for twice daily use after cleansing and drying in all skin types to allow gentle and gradual prevention of skin pore blockage and entrapment.
With the Rejuvaus cleansers, either the Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser, or the Purify Deep Cleanser, a single cleanse is generally all that’s required.
This is not only to remove make up, but also to wash away the dead cell debris, entrapped oil, exfoliated pigment, and thoroughly cleanse the skin.
Many people use cleansers that do not have sufficient AHA fruit acids, and are therefore not exfoliating. They go through a process of double and triple cleansing, which can be more traumatic on the skin.
For people to comply with good skincare, they need to cleanse every morning and night. Therefore, this process needs to be quick and last no longer than a minute, so using the right choice of cleanser is important.
The dead cells naturally separate and exfoliate constantly all day and night and thoroughly removing this material every morning, and every night is a simple quick task that everyone should do.
Many people use cream cleanses, which are gentle and soothing, but if they don’t contain sufficient AHA exfoliating fruit acids, they don’t thoroughly clean away the skin surface, dead cell layer, entrapped oil and pigment and residual make up.
If the exfoliating cleanser has natural fruit acids and they are not too harsh or drying, then they can and should be used twice a day. Dead cells break away every minute and hour of the day, not just at set times at the end of the day.
So, regular and gentle but thorough exfoliating cleansing is extremely important.
It is only harsh cleansers with foaming sulphur type agents or harsh, drying, synthetic acids or glycolic acid that can be too drying and irritating on the skin. These should be avoided.
The best moisturising cream for a dry skin is our Rich Repair Moisturising cream in the Rejuvaus range.
This is extremely moisturising and hydrating, because of both the hyaluronic acid’s (normal hyaluronic acid and the hydrolysed, low, molecular weight hyaluronic acid) and also the L-22 Lipid Complex, that helps to repair the skin barrier and prevent leakage from evaporation from the skin.
It is calming, soothing and anti-inflammatory due to the many antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents, and especially the Pre, Pro and Postbiotics, that help to balance the delicate Microbiome on the surface of the skin. It is very reparative and corrective, with a large amount of active Vitamin B and Vitamin C and the Collagen Peptides and Growth Factors. It is not occlusive and safe to use in all skin types, without causing any pore blockage or entrapment of oil.
It is a beautiful, easily spreading silky cream that is not sticky and greasy, and has a natural lemongrass fragrance, which also acts as a preservative.
Also, as the Rejuvaus range is stored in lightproof and airless container, to prevent oxidation, contamination from microbes, it therefore does not need any of the harsh petrochemical preservatives or filler ingredients found with most thick, sticky moisturiser skincare products.
Either or both of the Rejuvaus moisturisers, the Light or the Rich Moisturiser will suit your skin. Both are non-sticky or greasy and non-occlusive or pore blocking. They are very spreadable with a nice, silky-smooth feel.
They both contain a large amount of the two different types of Hyaluronic Acids to draw water into the skin and also the Rich Moisturiser includes the L-22 Lipid Complex to repair and maintain the skin barrier, in order to prevent leakage by evaporation from the skin surface.
They are both calming and anti-inflammatory due to the natural antioxidants, and also the Pre, Pro and Postbiotics that help to balance the microflora and prevent infection, inflammation, or pigmentation.
They both have collagen peptides and a high amount of strong Niacinamide (Vitamin B3 in an encapsulated form) and Kakadu Plum (Vitamin C). These both penetrate deeply and are corrective and reparative for the skin.
They also both have pigment inhibitors and exfoliant to help refine pores and prevent congestion. So, these are both very effective combined moisturisers and repair creams.
Many people like the feel and texture of creams rather than just relying on serums. They each combine many active ingredients – 24 and 22 repectively.
The advantages of the Rejuvaus serum products is that they are also natural and all have multiple high-grade active ingredients, combined synergistically and deeply penetrating, that work across at least seven of the eight possible categories of action of cosmetic ingredients.
Most people use both the serums and creams, but the choice in individual.
With an oily skin, particularly if you are prone to occlusion or congestion due to blockage of the ppores, you are best off just using the Rejuvaus Deep Purifying Exfoliating Cleanser, followed by combining together both the Clarifying & Hydrating BHA AHA Serum, mixed with the ABC Repair and Refine Serum.
These are extremely light and spreadable serums. The many active ingredients are able to penetrate deeply, to not only reverse and prevent congestion and help to regulate the excess oil production, but are very corrective.
This is due to the very strong antioxidant vitamins, growth factors and collagen peptides and super hydrating hyaluronic, acid and lipid complexes, that repair the skin barrier and prevent leakage from evaporation from the surface of the skin.
They also contain two types of Pre, Pro and Postbiotics that help to balance and maintain a healthy microflora or skin microbiome.
This is very important, as an oily skin usually has an overgrowth of inflammatory bacteria and mites in the skin, that can cause inflammation and pigment, if not adequately controlled. If you feel your skin also needs more moisturising, despite these two very hydrating serums, we would suggest using the Light Repair Moisturiser, many similar active ingredients and is not occlusive or pore blocking.
None of the Rejuvaus serums or creams will cause any problems with the skin, as they are very natural and pure and free of any of the occlusive or irritating petrochemical or silicon fillers or harsh preservatives, fragrances, or allergenic types of ingredients.
If your favourite moisturiser contains any of those products, and they do not cause any adverse reaction on the skin, then you can certainly use those.
However, all the active ingredient in the Rejuvaus range of creams and moisturiser serums should be applied first, as we need those to penetrate deeply, where they are going to have maximum effects on improving the complexion.
If your moisturiser has both normal and low molecular weight hyaluronic acid, then it will be additive and mutually beneficial to combine with the Rejuvaus serums.
However, it can block the pores, especially if it has a lot of silicones or silicanes or polyethylene glycols (PEGs). This is the reason we would prefer you to use this moisturiser last.
As it would affect the deep penetration of the active ingredients in the Rejuvaus serums.
If you like the Rejuvaus serums and wish to add an additional moisturising cream to the serums that you have applied, we would suggest adding either the Rejuvaus Rich Moisturiser Cream, or the Light Moisturiser Cream, whichever will suit your skin and produce active repair in addition to further moisturisation.
The powerful Rejuvaus range of creams and serums include a specialist eye cream for dark circles.
Although it is an extremely active serum with many (29) powerful ingredients, they are combined synergistically in a formulation that is extremely well tolerated by the delicate Eyelids. It can and should be used twice daily.
However, it is important to note that all the other Rejuvaus creams and serums are also very safe to use on the delicate eyelid skin, even though they are very active and powerful. This is due to their formulation, without any of the normal skin irritants or inflammatory agents, such as the petrochemical and silicone fillers and harsh acids, alkali, or preservatives, fragrances, and pigments.
Yes, all the Rejuvaus serums, creams and cleanses are safe to use on the entire facial skin, including the eyelids.
Although the Rejuvaus products contain a great deal of active ingredients that would often be thought to irritate the delicate eyelid skin, they do not due to the fact that they do not have any of the normal irritating acids and alkalis and harsh petrochemicals, preservatives, fragrances, pigments and other ingredients that could irritate and inflame the eyelid skin.
This is especially so, and again uniquely, with the i . Solar Repair & Protect UV Lotion.
Furthermore, all of the serums and creams was contain so many calming and soothing anti-inflammatory and anti-infective agents, that they are extremely well tolerated and very important to improve the quality of this extremely sensitive skin region.
It is suggested that the Clarifying & Hydrating BHA AHA Serum, however, is not applied directly to the eyelids.
Frequently Asked Questions
I have a good skin-why should I use any active skincare other than just a moisturiser?
Some people are very fortunate having come from a good gene pool, and have a fine skin structure without any obvious blemishes, coarse pores or fine lines.
The problem is that everyone lives in the real world and we are constantly exposed to environmental influences on our skin, especially ultraviolet radiation and other pollution stressors that can affect any complexion.
Many people, including most males are under the impression that just using a moisturiser is all that is necessary.
In fact, most moisturises do very little to improve, or maintain the skin and in fact, have ingredients that can be quite blocking, occlusive, and cause problems rather than improving or maintaining skin quality.
Most commercial moisturises have very little active ingredients that are known to improve skin other than botanical oils.
The majority of the bottle consists of creams with ingredients made from petrochemicals or silicones or extracts from seeds or plant oils.
These may smell nice and feel smooth and rich, but provide a little active benefit for the skin.
So, the opposite is true, and if you are lucky enough to have a good quality complexion, it is easier and more successful to maintain and protect and to further improve and slow down the ageing process, by using “intelligent actives“.
These are capable of reversing ultraviolet and free radical and environmental changes from continual exposure to the elements, without causing occlusion or blockage by using harsh ingredients.
The Rejuvaus “intelligent actives“ are all combined synergistically in bottles, containing multiple different types or categories of corrective action with minimal effort, using light spreadable serums are almost immediately absorbed deeply, without leaving a sticky or greasy film on the surface.
One or two bottles is all that good skincare needs. The application of many multiple intelligent active ingredients that are not harmful, but only positive for the skin, should take no longer than 60 seconds each day.
So, it is easier and better to maintain a good skin than to have to repair a damaged skin as we age.
It’s very common to have course pores, especially with tougher male skin type complexion.
However, course pores are common to most people, and can be refined by removing and preventing a build-up of blockage of the pores due to entrapped oil and other skin cell debris.
It is important to understand that this is an ongoing continual process and ideally products that are active should be used on the skin twice daily to maintain the improvement and prevent pores getting re-blocked.
It is impossible to always have fine unblocked pores, as with most people, sebum (oil), is being produced in the Dermal layer of the skin, every minute of the day and night.
This oil needs to be able to come to the surface, not block the pores, and be gently exfoliated away from the surface entrapment layer, constantly during the day and night.
This is where the Rejuvaus serums excel in their ability to multitask, due to the multiple different types of active ingredients in each bottle.
We recommend the use of a cleanser containing relatively strong, but gentle fruit acids and activated charcoal. (Purify Deep AHA Exfoliating Cleanser.)
Once the skin is dry, apply, just one pump of each (0.2 ml), together of Clarify and Renew AHA BHA Serum, with Refine & Renew ABC Antioxidant Serum. These two serums alone, alone contained 23 and 33 “intelligent” active ingredients, respectively (56 ingredients), that have many simultaneous and synergistic actions on the skin, covering all seven of the eight possible categories of action that skincare can perform.
An exfoliative but gentle non-foaming cleanser will successfully wash away all your already-separated dead cell debris, entrapped oil, and micro-organisms and pigment, without drying the skin, or causing irritation.
The two serums mentioned will help to separate the bonds binding this debris and constantly but gently exfoliate this entrapment layer, helping to keep this potentially blocking layer free.
This then allows the other ingredients to penetrate deeply. After extracting deeper oil blocked in the pores, this allows the Vitamin A to regulate and control excessive oil production and all the other antioxidants, collagen peptides and growth factors to help renew, rebuild and repair the pore structure and refined the skin surface. The other anti-inflammatory and anti-infective agents help to balance, calm and soothe the skin.
The two types of deeply penetrating, Hyaluronic Acids hydrate the cells and the Lipid L-22 Complex prevents evaporation and retains moisture in the skin so as not to allow the AHAs and BHAs to strip or dry out the skin.
This is possible because of the very powerful, 15% encapsulated, salicylic acid (BHA), that is released slowly and gradually throughout the day and night, as the exfoliation process must be continual and constant to keep the pores refined.
This is where most skin care products fall down, in that they often encourage intermittent and non-continual harsher exfoliation, both physical and chemical, without the combined additive active ingredients to balance all these activities intelligently.
So, with this regular “intelligent” oil clearing cleanser and the combination of these two “intelligent” active serums used twice daily, each and every day. it is easily possible to refine and maintain a smooth pore structure of our skin.
Furthermore, these two steps take less than a minute to complete and therefore is very easy to maintain.
The ruddy or red complexion appearance is usually due to inflammation in the skin, as well as having small veins and capillaries growing in complexes near the surface of the skin where there more easily seen.
The redness increases with anything that will bring more blood to the surface of the skin, caused by dilating of the feeder arteries underneath. This occurs with overheating, such as exercise, emotions, embarrassment, stress of various kinds or certain food stimulus.
Active skincare can certainly help to improve the redness caused by inflammation or infection or Microbiome imbalance on the surface of the skin.
However, laser treatments are usually required to close the more superficial blood vessels that cause the blushing redness, where the blood vessels enlarge.
The components of redness that can be controlled with skincare ingredients include most importantly, the Pre, Pro and Postbiotics that balance the microflora and the delicate Microbiome of the skin.
Secondly, calming and anti-inflammatory ingredients with intelligent actives can make a significant difference to facial redness, especially if used twice daily.
Thirdly, the more powerful and active antioxidants, if formulated carefully and correctly can make a big difference to repairing and calming the skin.
They should only be used on inflamed skin, if they are slowly released through an encapsulation process.
Rejuvaus is able to provide all of these well formulated, natural, but active serums that are capable of penetrating more deeply into the skin where they are able to produce real improvement.
A reddish complexion in a person with a more fine delicate, thin skin type would use slightly different products to a thicker more oily and coarse pore skin.
In the Rejuvaus range, we would suggest in the first type skin type using:
1. Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser
2. Followed by Clarifying Serum and ABC Repair & Restore Serum, applied sequentially one after the other, twice daily
3. Followed by M1 applied each and every morning.
In the second skin category, recommended would be:
1. Deep, Exfoliating Cleanser
2. Followed by S6 and S1 and S3, all applied, together, twice daily
3. Followed by M1 each and every morning.
Rosacea is a chronic and ongoing dermatological condition or dermatitis, that usually starts in the 20s and can get worse throughout the 30s, 40s and 50s.
It often occurs as a familial trait, and is a more active inflammatory condition than just a simple, reddish inflamed skin type.
It often causes burning and stinging at times, when it is aggravated by certain trigger factors, such as acute embarrassment, emotional stresses, overheating with temperature or exercise or certain food or drink irritants, especially alcohol.
Certain types of rosacea are also associated with excessive oil, production and this associated form, called Acne Rosacea is a variant that is more problematic to control.
Intelligent active skincare ingredients can play a big part in reducing active inflammation, controlling and regulation oil flow, preventing entrapment and occlusion and in healing and repairing the secondary problems that damage the complexion.
Also, especially in more florid active cases, oral medication, including antibiotics and in-clinic laser treatments are required in addition to topical skincare regimes.
In the Rejuvaus range, there are many combined intelligent actives able to assist in calming and repairing the epidermal skin condition and damage. These are extremely safe due to the fact that the ingredients are all natural, encapsulated, slow-release, active ingredients.
Caution must of course be taken to slowly introduce these ingredients to the skin and patience exercised to use these products wisely.
Recommended products include the gentle natural fruit acid cleanser, Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser, followed by gradual introduction of Clarify & Renew BHA AHA Serum and the i . Solar Protect and Repair light lotion.
Following after a few weeks, a gradual introduction to ABC Restore and Repair Serum, initially every second night and gradually increasing to twice daily, will enhance improvement.
Yes, the Rejuvaus range is very suitable for skin of all skin types or colours.
This is because it has pure active ingredients without any of the petrochemical or silicone type fillers, or any other harsh chemical ingredients.
The main principles of the Rejuvaus range are to have many active, proven effective ingredients to improve skin metabolism and protect the skin, without causing irritation from harsh chemical ingredients, preservatives, essential oils, pigments, fragrances, or inflammatory or acidic ingredients.
And furthermore, all of the strong active ingredients that are known to be very beneficial to improving skin, but also can cause inflammation and irritation, are in a slow-release and deeply penetrating, encapsulated form.
This includes the strong Retinaldehyde, (Vitamin A), Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), and especially the slow-release Salicylic Acid.
Those particular three ingredients, as well as a very calming natural rich form of Vitamin C (Kakadu Plum), and powerful and yet non-irritating pigment inhibitors, hydrating hyaluronic acids, collagen peptides and growth factors, and other natural anti-inflammatories and antioxidants, make this in an extremely well tolerated range of serums.
The serums, creams and lotions are not greasy, sticky or occlusive and are absorbed quickly without leaving a residual film on the skin.
So, the deep penetration and the other properties above, make it very suitable for most problematic skins and normal skin of dark colour.
Skin types of all colours from the darkest to the lightest colours are often associated with excessive oiliness and the associated problems accompanying this, including congestion of oil pores, inflammation, pigmentation and acne concerns.
Many skincare ingredients may not be suitable for these conditions and especially in dark skin types. Inflammatory spots or infected spots from trapped oil and acne bacteria, often lead to much darker pigmentation, making the skin look very irregular and accentuating the spots.
To control excessive oil exuded from the sebum/oil glands, Rejuvaus serums contain active and then yet non-irritating or non-inflammatory ingredients.
These help to regulate and control the oil production and release, the prevention of blockage and occlusion in the pores. These allow a natural, gradual and non-harsh exfoliation, and prevent further entrapment of the oil. The Clarifying and Hydrating BHA AHA Serum, although extremely powerful, incorporates a slow-release encapsulated form of Salicylic Acid, that helps to unblock the pores and entrapped oil.
It is released slowly and gradually throughout the day and night, so it does reduces build-up of oil.
The strong and yet again encapsulated Vitamin A and Vitamin B and the natural rich Vitamin C Serum ( Kakadu Plum) are very well tolerated in both dark skin and any oil congested acne conditions.
Each of the serums are hydrating, due to the deeply penetrating 2 types of Hyaluronic Acids and the L-22 Lipid Complex that prevents dryness or evaporation from the skin again, without blocking the pores and causing further entrapment.
The calming and soothing anti-inflammatory agents and other antioxidants together with the skin-balancing Pre, Pro and Postbiotics, also help to prevent inflammation and consequent excessive pigment formation.
There are also many natural pigment inhibitor ingredients that are well tolerated to reduce the amount of pigment formed and regulate the even distribution of pigment. This helps to reduce any potential of pigment spots and uneven skin tones.
Also, the collagen peptides and growth factors aids in the repair of any skin damage, to keep the pore structure and skin complexion as smooth as possible.
Lastly, in such skin types, most skin sunscreens are poorly tolerated due to greasiness and oil gland blockage pore blockage.
However, the i . Solar Repair and Protect Lotion is well tolerated by all skin of colour, without causing acne or pore blockage. It leaves a matte finish rather than a shiny finish on the skin. It is extremely long-lasting with a high SPF, a physical (mineral) sunblock with a high amount of invisible zinc and titanium dioxide.
It does not cause a white film on the skin and is well tolerated by people with a dark skin colour.
So, in summary, the recommended regime is to use:
1. Purify Deep Exfoliating Cleanser
2. Followed by Clarify & Hydrating BHA AHA Serum
3. Then combining the ABC Repair Serum together with Bright & Even Niacinamide Pigment Serum. They should all be used twice daily, each and every morning.
4. Then should be added the i . Solar Protect and Repair Lotion. It is important to only use one pump of each (0.2 mils), as these products are very pure and concentrated with very active ingredients and this amount of this very spreadable serum is adequate to cover the entire face, and even more.
As these products are so active, it is recommended to start for the first two weeks slowly, only once a day, and then increasing to twice daily use.
It is very common to see as people of dark skin colour age, that their skin complexion loses that beautiful, even a smooth complexion and becomes more mottled with various areas of the face darkening in colour.
This is usually most obvious under the eyes, parts of the forehead, the chin and generally around the mouth. The Rejuvaus skincare range is very suitable for this due to its comprehensive range of very natural and yet strong, active ingredients, combined in a synergistic blend that improves pigmentation formation and distribution, without any of the side-effects found in many other skincare ranges.
The serums are particularly well tolerated, light and easily spreadable.
They are absorbed quickly and deeply into the skin without leaving a sticky or greasy film and leaving a mat, non-shiny finish.
New pigmentation is formed throughout the day and night, but of course is increased with exposure to daylight (UV energy).
Skin of colour is no exception, other than it is more protective against UV energy than lighter skin types, that are more prone to sun damage and skin cancers.
However, the areas of darkening in regions of the face, are due to the pigment cells in that area producing more pigment than the surrounding lighter areas.
This causes patchiness and uneven skin tones.
The aim of good skincare, therefore, is to reduce and regulate the amount of pigment being produced, and also the distribution of pigment from the Basal layer of skin into the surface cellular layer (Keratinocyte layer), where this excess pigment is deposited.
The recommended Rejuvaus serums to combine are:
1. Clarifying & Hydrating BHA AHA Serum together with
2. Bright & Even Niacinamide Pigment Serum, to start these gradually, just once daily (no more than one pump), and then to increase to twice daily over a few weeks.
3. Then to increase the ABC Repair Antioxidant Serum again, initially once daily at night and then increasing to twice daily.
4. It is also extremely important to use the i . Solar Protect and Repair Lotion, each and every morning.
Many and most people with skin of colour do not use sunscreen, but it is extremely important, as UV energy directly increases the pigment production and distribution, causing patchy coloured skin.
The i . Solar Rejuvaus Lotion is well-tolerated leaves a matte finish, does not cause a white film compared to most of sunscreens. It is very powerful and lasts until it is washed or wiped off. This is because it is a physical sunblock (mineral). This means it is a reflective sunblock and does not lose its SPF within two hours, as do most normal chemical sun blocks, which are often poorly tolerated by most people with skin of colour.
Breakouts in skin are due to both excessive oil production, where the oil is also thicker, and this thicker and greater amount of oil cannot escape from the pores, due to poor blockage.
Rejuvaus products are able to make a significant difference to improve this is due, to the nature of the formulation having many active and pure ingredients that are very powerful, but also calming, soothing, anti-inflammatory, anti-infective and corrective. The first step to try and prevent breakouts is to thoroughly cleanse the skin with an exfoliating cleanser.
For an oily skin the best recommended is the Rejuvaus Purify Deep Exfoliative Cleanser, with a strong concentration of AHAs and the added activated charcoal.
This ingredient can absorb up to 40 times its weight in oil. Furthermore, it is a hydrating and calming, beautifully lathering cleanser that leaves the skin feeling fresh and clean.
This of course should be done twice daily. A good cleanser will wash only the entrapped oil, pigment and microorganisms that have already separated their bonds from the surface layer of skin.
It is also necessary to use the Clarify & Hydrating BHA AHA Serum as the next step.
This is a “leave-on“ exfoliating serum. It has a small amount of normal salicylic acid (1%), but high concentration (15%) of a slow-release and deeply penetrating, encapsulated Salicylic Acid. It also contains many AHAs.
Applying this after cleansing twice today is an extremely important step in helping to thin the occlusive or entrapment layer of the surface of the skin.
This exfoliation occurs gradually and continuously over an 8 to 12 hour period, and if used morning and night, can prevent pore blockage and prevent any acne congestion.
This is safe to use, and very calming and hydrating as well as repairing, due to the L-22 Lipid Complex and the two types of deeply penetrating Hyaluronic Acids, also the pore refining collagen peptides and growth factors.
It also encompasses many other anti-inflammatory and anti0infective actives, including Pre, Pro and Postbiotics that help to prevent overgrowth and infection from an imbalance of the microflora.
Therefore, this restores to normal, the important but delicate balance of the skin Microbiome, which also helps prevent breakouts.
The third product recommended is the powerful ABC Repair and Renew Antioxidant Serum with the highly effective encapsulated Retinaldehyde 1% (Vitamin A), the 10%, slow-release, encapsulated Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), as well as the richest source of Vitamin C (Kakadu Plum).
All of these important ingredients, plus a great deal more active ingredients in this serum, help to regulate and control oil flow, reduce inflammation and help healing of tissue, and strengthen the skin.
Also, it is very important with an acne prone skin to use a physical (mineral) sunscreen, but one that does not occlude or block the pores.
The i . Solar Repair & Protect Lotion is extremely well tolerated by all oily acneic, skins without causing any pore blockage, in contrast to most normal sunscreens on the market. These usually have a lot of occlusive silicone and petrochemical ingredients that can lead to breakouts.
A typical routine therefore for oily skin to prevent breakouts will be:
1. Cleans twice daily with Purity Deep Exfoliating Cleanser
2. Followed by application of the ‘leave-on’ Clarify $ Hydrate BHA AHA Serum
3. Followed by the application of the ABC Repair & Restore Serum, both morning and night.
4. Each morning One pump of the i . Solar Lotion is all that is needed to protect and help repair the skin complexion throughout the day.
