Formulation ID: CH0066

Beauty is timeless and is now becoming ageless. This COSMOS compliant natural day cream restores skin homeostasis to reduce the effects of external aggressions whilst also promoting cell cohesion and its acts on the inflammation mediators responsible for premature ageing through the inclusion of Phytessence™ Speedwell. Crodamol™ SSA is a 100% naturally derived alternative to squalane that leaves the skin soft and velvety and is easily absorbed without leaving a greasy afterfeel. Perfect for use at night Pricerine™ 9091 helps retain moisture leaving skin hydrated throughout the day.
