Skincare Packaging

Since the days of Cleopatra, cosmetic skincare jars have been a fixture on many women’s vanity tables. Elaborate packaging has a way of making us feel beautiful as we apply our creams and elixirs. Unfortunately, the packaging of some of our skincare can actually negate what’s inside!

A jar, classic though it may look, exposes your product to light and air every time the lid is opened. The most important, effective and expensive ingredients, like antioxidants and retinol, are the most fragile, and begin to break down as soon as they are exposed to air and light.

In the case of antioxidants, they’re just doing their job! Antioxidants help to protect your skin from free radical damage, and oxygen is a free radical. So, when the product is exposed to the oxygen, the oxygen is destroying the antioxidants in the jar. Imagine buying a warehouse of amazing fireworks, and then accidentally setting them off inside the warehouse. You would be accidentally activating the antioxidants within the jar before they had a chance to work their magic on your skin.

Many botanical and organic ingredients break down in the same way. Some skincare is packaged in a see through bottle to show off the product. While this protects it from air, the light destroys your product’s efficacy without you even knowing it.

Cleanser and Eye Lift PackagingSome skincare companies promote the notion that if ingredients are encapsulated, they are protected from exposure. Don’t fall for this! If they won’t react in the jar, they won’t react on your skin when they’re supposed to. Not to mention that dipping your fingers repeatedly into your jar can introduce unnecessary bacteria which will further break down your product and could cause break outs on your skin.

When designing our products, we were well aware of the shortcomings in packaging of the existing skincare brands. We wanted to create products that not only use the best dermatologically effective and natural ingredients, but that will be good to the last drop. There would be no point in formulating our Sea Radiance products if they would be destroyed once you open them.

This is why we created our Rapid Eye Lift in an airless tube that seals itself right after the product is dispensed. Our Gentle Cleanser is in an opaque pump dispenser that is protected from light. These provide the best protection for those powerful ingredients like Sea Elixir, peptides, antioxidants and aloe vera. You can apply your products with confidence knowing that not only will you feel beautiful, but that the ingredients will be working all day long.

Hydration

When we think of beautiful skin, we think of skin that is moisturized with a healthy glow.

As we age, our skin naturally looses its ability to keep itself as hydrated as it did when we were younger. You may turn to face creams to help boost this moisture, but first, examine your cleanser. Why strip your skin of its natural oils with harsh soaps and then have to use all those heavy moisturizers?

Our Gentle Cleanser allows skin to maintain its natural moisture while adding the best available hydration:

 

  • Vegetable Glycerin attracts water and hydrates. Naturally found in your skin, this helps to boost those supplies.
  • Vegetable Cetyl Alcohol is derived from vegetable oil and locks moisture into the skin.
  • Aloe Vera has been used for hundreds of years for its abilities as a moisturizer.
  • Hyaluronic Acid is naturally occurring in skin. It’s the glue that holds our skin together and gives it the smoothness of youth. It absorbs 1000 times its weight in water, so it takes water out of the air and puts it into your skin.
  • Methylpropanediol is hydrating and this enhances the penetration of the other ingredients into your skin.
  • Ceramides naturally occur on the skin surface to protect your skin against water loss. The Gentle Cleanser will add additional ceramides to your skin to keep your skin protected all day long.
  • Cholesterol gets a bad name when there’s too much in our blood vessels. But it’s also naturally found on the surface of the skin, and it helps to create a barrier to keep in needed moisture.

 

Gentle Cleanser will remove dirt, oil, toxins, impurities, environmental pollutants and all traces of makeup while enhancing your skin’s natural hydration and moisture balance.

It can be a difficult battle to get rid of redness, especially as we age.

Inflammation, broken capillaries and irritation from pollutants we are exposed to throughout the day can show through even the most expertly applied makeup.

This is why we created our Sea Radiance Gentle Cleanser with natural ingredients to counteract redness in several different ways:

Aloe Vera - Fights Redness

 

Aloe Vera has natural anti-inflammatory properties that help to minimize irritation.

Chamomilla recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract – this is wild chamomile! It is also an anti-inflammatory used to calm sensitive skin.

Bisabolol is an anti-inflammatory derived from chamomile, as well.

Panthenol DL is also known as provitamin B5, and it reduces redness.

 

Every time you wash your face, these natural ingredients will be working to soothe your skin to prepare it for your favorite moisturizers, serums and elixirs.

 

 

 

You can hardly pick up any skin care product without seeing the word “antioxidants.”

The word has become synonymous with “good for your skin.” But, don’t be daunted by the scientific-sounding title – you can understand how they work and use them as part of your skincare routine!

Think of an apple – if you slice it and leave it out, soon the exposed fruit will turn brown. This is oxidization, which leads to the deterioration of a living organism, whether it’s a piece of fruit, or your skin!

Antioxidants, as their name implies, prevent oxidization to keep skin looking fresh and youthful. This is why when you coat an apple slice with lemon juice it will not turn brown. The antioxidants in the lemon juice are doing their job.

The same is true of antioxidants on your skin, but they need to be the right ones. Dr. Jaliman has packed our Sea Radiance Gentle Cleanser with powerful antioxidants that will be most effective to help your skin combat aging on a daily basis.

 

Chamomile - AntioxidantsChamomilla recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract – this wild chamomile contains the antioxidant flavonoids.

Tocopherol Nicotinate – another name for Vitamin E, a potent antioxidant and longtime favorite in skincare.

Aloe Vera contains antioxidant vitamins A, C and E. Three amazing vitamins in one little plant! It is also anti-inflammatory, so it takes redness out of your skin.

Essential oils blend made from green tea – contains polyphenols, a powerful source of additional antioxidants.

 

Now that you know how antioxidants work, you can incorporate these powerful ingredients into your daily skincare routine to help keep your skin healthy and vibrant for years to come.
