Previously, skincare has mainly served the purpose of cleaning and hydrating the skin, Now with science, skincare is taking leaps and bounds forward.
Cosmeceutical skincare relies on active ingredients with therapeutic benefit and pharmaceutical delivery systems to enhance skin cell functions. This now means that managing certain skin conditions like acne or rosacea and reversing the signs of aging is possible without the need for dermatologist prescription or expensive procedures.
Here are the latest serums and their achievements in Cosmeceutical skincare with top technological advancements.

Achievement 1 – Boosting the Natural Antioxidant Function in Skin
Codex Beauty has developed an anti-inflammatory botanical complex called The AntuComplex.
AntuComplex features a blend of hyaluronic acid and M3 antioxidant mix extracted from three key Patagonian plants (Matico, Maqui and Murillo), Hyaluronic acid benefits the skin by hydrating and increasing elasticity, while M3 antioxidants help protect and brighten.
Other key ingredients are hibiscus, cherimoya, and entadine extract. Hibiscus and cherimoya increase the rate of skin cell turnover which promotes the shedding of dead skin cells and effectively reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Entadine helps protect the skin from environmental stressors.
Suitable for all skin types but especially great for dull, dry or uneven skin.
This brightening face serum is the perfect addition for your skincare routine to add radiance and firm skin!

Achievement 2 – Stem Cell Technology for Advanced Wound Healing
This serum treats skin discoloration problems, addressing hyperpigmentation and melasma by actively breaking down uneven skin pigmentation. It also prevents new dyspigmentation from forming, leaving skin tone even.
The formula features highly concentrated and patented protein mix from red deer umbilical cord lining stem cell conditioned media. This is ethically sourced as they are derived from birthing waste therefore no animal is hurt in the extraction process.
This protein mix contains key proteins, cytokines and growth factors such as soluble collagen, fibronectin and hyaluronic acid that accelerate wound healing and bring the skin’s cell renewal cycles back towards 28 days.
IDEAL FOR: Hyperpigmentation, Melasma, Sun Spots, Acne Scarring, Uneven Skin tone.
Achievement 3 – Rapidly Regeneration via Activation of Signalling Cascades
Skin cells are constantly speaking with each other to ensure they are working in unison to respond to the environment. By understanding these precise signals, Evenswiss has created a 100% Swiss made cosmeceutical range with patented signally technology called Dermatopoietin. Dermatopoietin offers a completely different way to stimulate cell communication and collagen production. It is a specialised peptide that mimics the skin signalling protein interleukin-1 alpha, which is responsible for regulation and regeneration..
When skin cells are exposed to Dermatopoietin, they immediately respond by passing signals to their neighbouring cells which starts a chain reaction that propagates from the epidermis to the dermis.When the dermis is reached there is an increase in collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.
Other key ingredients are: Jojoba Esters to help reduce dryness that can lead to flaky patches: Argan oil to help prevent the formation of wrinkles and vitamin E to help protect the skin from free radicals and help reduce the damage caused by UVB rays.
IDEAL FOR: Ageing Skin, Premature Ageing, Thin Skin, Dullness.
Achievement 4 – Generate a 6-fold increase in Penetration without Excessive Exfoliation
It is very common for skincare lines to focus on exfoliating the epidermis every day, however this may cause skin sensitivity, sun sensitivity and dehydration. Osmosis Serums help protect the skin barrier while maximising the age-reversing repair.
The range uses pharmaceutical delivery systems (liposomes and exosomes) to generate a 6-fold increase in penetration of active ingredients into the skin. Osmosis combines liposomes with retinaldehyde which is a powerful and non sensitising form of vitamin A that is naturally found in the skin, and helps stimulates long-term collagen production,IDEAL FOR: Anti-Ageing, Dull Skin, Fine Lines, Wrinkles, Hyperpigmentation and Scarring.
