Orchestrate (2% Bakuchiol & Co-Q10 Stem Cell Treatment Serum) (100ml) - 

A symphony of proven actives working synergistically to increase cell turnover, improve elasticity, refine skin tone, target aging concerns, stimulate collagen synthesis, and deliver optimal hydration.

This potent antioxidant blend supports the skin to reverse damage caused by environmental exposure whilst having a profound soothing effect.

A sophisticated harmony orchestrated to optimise radiant, resilient, luminous glowing skin. 

Key ingredients -

Bakuchiol can be compared with Retinol in cell turnover activity but it does not cause the irritation that Retinol does.  Bakuchiol has less limitations of use, i.e. can be used twice a day, in conjunction with vitamin C and also used more safely on eye areas.  See more information below.

Stem cells function to reorganize the skin's internal structure.  They reorganise and enhance the density of the dermal structure, mend the extracellular matrix, and enhance cellular adhesion. The outcome is skin that regains the elasticity of 12 years ago, presenting a softer, velvety complexion and a more youthful appearance.

CoQ10, skincare powerhouse, energizes cell activity, reduces sun damage, evens skin tone, stimulates collagen production, replenishes skin cells, and diminishes wrinkles.

Bio-Actives (Kawakawa/Mānuka honey, New Zealand native Red seaweed and Mamaku Black fern) help to restore disrupted skin microbiome and contain unique and powerful calming and anti-inflammatory components.

Niacinamide (3%) supports keratin production for skin firmness, enhances lipid barrier for moisture retention, reduces inflammation, minimizes pores, helps to regulate oil, addresses hyperpigmentation, diminishes fine lines, and helps with acne.

Bisabolol, derived from chamomile, offers anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antimicrobial benefits, promoting skin healing, protecting against environmental stress, and enhancing the efficacy of other skincare actives.

All skin types, especially sensitive skin.

3-4 (or more) drops, twice a day, over entire face, and neck (including eyes) after cleansing and/or water-based serum/toner.  Can be used as a very light moisturiser on its own under makeup or SPF but usually moisturiser is recommended on top of Orchestrate serum.  Always finish with final layer of SPF during day.

Further info - Bakuchiol is comparable with retinol in its ability to improve photoageing but is better tolerated than retinol.

A 12 week study of 44 patients using either bakuchiol 0·5% cream twice daily or retinol 0·5% cream daily, proved -
“Bakuchiol and retinol both significantly decreased wrinkle surface area and hyperpigmentation, with no statistical difference between the compounds. The retinol users reported more facial skin scaling and stinging.”
“demonstrates that bakuchiol is comparable with retinol in its ability to improve photoageing and is better tolerated than retinol. Bakuchiol is promising as a more tolerable alternative to retinol”*

Bakuchiol can be used in conjunction with Retinol – “When these two ingredients are paired together, you now have a more effective duo that provides anti-aging, collagen producing, hyperpigmentation-fighting, skin firmness restoring benefits with the unwanted side effects minimized”.**

Bakuchiol as an alternative to Retinol – Retinol is sometimes not tolerated well by sensitive skin, this is bakuchiol comes to the fore as your retinoid alternative (including use as an eye cream).  Retinol should not be used when pregnant or nursing please consult your healthcare professional about using Bakuchiol as an alternative during this time.
Takes up to 12 weeks to see skin improvements.
