This December, local skincare brand SKIN Functional launched its very first cream moisturiser to its serum-based product range.
SKIN Functional is known for its affordable skincare serums that provide visible results after use and no less is expected from its new Daily Moisturiser.
Kevin Khosa from SKIN Functional says, “The introduction of a cream-based daily moisturiser to the range is intended to provide customers with a holistic skincare offering. This Daily Moisturiser consists of 5% Black Ginseng + ATP Complex that is suitable for all skin types and can be used both morning and evening for hydrated and healthier-looking skin. The SF Daily Moisturiser aims to protect skin by significantly reducing collagenase, an enzyme which breaks down collagen and elastin.”
What is Black Ginseng?
Panax Ginseng is a root extract, native to mountainous regions of Russian Far East (Outer Manchuria), Northeast China, and the Korean Peninsula. It is a protected plant in Russia and China, and most commercial ginseng is now sourced from plants cultivated in China, Korea and Russia.
The active component in ginseng is called ginsenosides. In order to obtain the highest level of ginsenosides, the root must be distilled/extracted. This process is done using steam. After three distillation cycles, red ginseng is the outcome which has also been widely reported to provide health benefits.
Black ginseng undergoes nine distillation cycles, yielding the highest possible level of ginsenosides. Black ginseng extract contains 300% more actives than red ginseng.
Benefits of 5% Black Ginseng + ATP Complex formula
This ingredient combination has been developed to be a powerful antioxidant for the skin that significantly enhances skin hydration by allowing more water to be captured in the skin. The Black Ginseng is collagen-boosting which enhances collagen production in the skin and assists natural growth of cells to rebuild skin.
The ATP complex, made in the mitochondria is what powers the batteries of skin cells. As we age, we produce less ATP Complex. Increased ATP Complex increases the functioning of cells.
How to easily achieve better-looking skin
To achieve optimal results, use anhydrous (no water) and oil-based serums before applying the moisturiser. It is important to wait about three minutes for the serums to properly absorb into the skin before applying moisturiser.
The key to noticeable results is consistent application twice a day, every day. This ensures that you are providing your skin with effective ingredients to preserve optimal skin health.
SKIN Functional’s Daily Moisturiser will be available for purchase from 01 December 2020 and retails for R290.00 for a 50ml tube.
