Made with a blend of bio-active phytonutrients, skin-identical ingredients and vitamins (Vitamin C, B3 and B5) Clara is not only capable of tackling the skin concerns listed bellow but it also supports the skin's barrier function and stimulates the production of ceramides, collagen and elastin.
Clara serum addresses:
Once a day in the morning. Apply a pea size to freshly washed and slightly damp skin. Follow by your moisturizer, you don't need to wait for the product to completely sink in the skin before applying the next step of your routine.
(Vitamin C) Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate is a more-stable water-soluble derivative of L-ascorbic acid that is used as an excellent additive in the modern functional whitening cosmetics. It has the same potential as Vitamin C to promote skin collagen synthesis, prevent free radical damage and inhibit melanin. Moreover, magnesium ascorbyl phosphate helps protect the skin from ultraviolet rays and it is not irritating to the skin unlike L-ascorbic acid.
Niacinamide (vitamin B3) is a water soluble vitamin that offers a wide range of well-documented skin benefits.
Research suggests that niacinamide can start to improve acne and hyperpigmentation within two to three months, while oil production and skin barrier can start to see changes within a month.
Glucosamine is a “skin identical ingredient”, meaning it’s found in our skin in the spaces between the cells, and it is used to maintain skin’s barrier abilities and reduce dryness. Studies have shown that Glucosamine can increase collagen production, moisture content of the skin, skin elasticity, exfoliation, and the speed of wound healing.
Glucosamine has also been shown to reduce hyperpigmentation.
Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate. Another ingredient with very well documented skin balancing properties is Azelaic acid. It has antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and skin tone balancing properties which make it effective in the treatment of skin conditions like acne and rosacea.
However, Azelaic Acid is very difficult to formulate with and the result is usually a product that is thick and difficult to spread over the skin. Most people also report a skin drying effect.
In order to overcome these problems a new molecule, Potassium Azeloyl di-Glycinate (PAD), has been created. PAD is obtained from the condensation of azelaic acid mixed with glycine. This new form of Azelaic Acid has proven to be very effective as a skin whitening agent and sebum normalizer, it also improves moisturization and skin elasticity.
Turmeric has been used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat a variety of ailments and as a natural skin-enhancing ingredient in the Eastern cultures. Today, many studies show that Curcumin, the active phytonutrient in Turmeric, has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, relieves redness, decreases blemishes and brightens the complexion. Turmeric is also very soothing and excellent ingredient for people with rosacea prone skin.
Milk Thistle Extract contains Silymarin, which belongs to a range of flavonoids, better known as phytonutrients. Medical research has repeatedly shown that Silymarin has skin whitening properties as it significantly decreases skin melanin level when applied topically, decreases erythema (skin redness) and it has significant anti-inflammatory properties.
Licorice has been traditionally used for promotion of wound healing. Licorice root extracts protect the skin against oxidative stress injuries, accelerate wound healing and efficiently reduce the symptoms of atopic dermatitis. Glabridin is the bioactive phytonutrient in Licorice that has many properties potentially beneficial in cosmetic products. It acts as antioxidant, estrogenic, anti-inflammatory, and skin-whitening agent.
