The treatment behind this formula is two fold: Those concerned with impaired skin, still want to treat the visible signs of ageing. So it was important for me to create a formula that harnesses the wonderful benefits of anti ageing retinoid and support healthy skin with the power of retinoids, without the irritation of traditional retinol. This I achieved by using next generation retinoids.

Secondly I wanted to create an over night oil, a treatment that was about making quality sleep an essential part of your skincare routine, allowing your skin time to renew and regenerate.

During sleep, our skin’s metabolic rate speeds up and many of our body’s cells show increased production and reduced breakdown of proteins. Since these proteins are the building blocks of cellular growth, and work hard to repair damage from factors like UV and pollution, it makes sense to introduce ingredients into your night time regime that encourage this repair.

Creating this formula essentially was about digging deep, understanding the anatomy and physiology of our skin and how it is when we sleep well, that holistically we are able to repair and restore the effects of daily stress most efficiently. The result a perfectly crafted, inky blue night oil that is an absolute favorite among my clients.
