THE WORLD’S FIRST SERUMIZER®

AN OIL-FREE SERUM SO HYDRATING YOU MAY NOT NEED A MOISTURIZER

A beautifully simple yet highly potent blend of eight naturally derived and bio-idenitical ingredients formulated to hydrate, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, improve skin tone, suppleness and elasticity.

Featuring our proprietary Quad Weight Hyaluronic Acid®, saturating your skin at different levels with four different weights of Hyaluronic Acid, your skin’s natural hydrator, leaving your skin feeling super soft with a youthful glow.

FREE SHIPPING IN THE USA. WE ALSO SHIP INTERNATIONALLY

A hydrating youth maintenance serum that supports the work done by the natural components of our youthful skin structure: hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin.

With our exclusive Quad Weight Hyaluronic Acid® (HA) there are four molecular weights of HA giving unparalleled deep hydration leaving skin looking plump and smooth.

This hydration is supported by natural extracts and bio-identical ingredients which support the body’s production of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin, as well as a powerful antioxidant to fight off free radicals that could otherwise accelerate premature aging.

Oil-free, it can work under a moisturizer or even instead of one if your skin type allows (normal or oily skin with a gentle cleanser works best). It is also ideal before to applying make-up as it leaves skin feeling smoother as well as looking radiant and healthy.

Used twice a day after cleansing on the face, neck, and décolletage, this serum is a perfect complement to any existing skincare regime.

HOW SKINEGA SERUMIZER WORKS

You will find out more on the ingredients page, but essentially we have our unique Quad Weight Hyaluronic Acid® which has four weights of hyaluronic acid for different levels of penetration. The heaviest molecular weight sits on top and forms a nonocclusive film that helps prevent water loss.

We also hydrate from the inside due to the acetyl glucosamine formula and amino acid precursors which support HA production as well as collagen and elastin.

Our natural tree bark biopolymer provides an instant tightening feeling as well as a temporary reduction in the appearance of wrinkles to give you a kick start to the slower acting ingredients.

Our natural plant extract works as an antioxidant, and it too has properties that can support the hard work that fibroblasts do in producing HA, collagen, and elastin.

SERUMIZER – DO I STILL NEED TO MOISTURIZER?

Serumizer does not contain lipids (fats/oils) that will work to repair the skin barrier, so if your skin type cannot self-regulate its lipid production sufficiently for your external environment, or you use soap for example (which may temporarily wash away some lipids), you will have to continue to moisturize, but can do so after you’ve added Serumizer to your skin, so you still benefit from the potent skin nourishing ingredients.

If you’re fortunate enough to have skin that works as it should do, self-regulating moisture levels, you may be able to use Serumizer without the need to moisturize.

Only you will know with your skin type in trying Skinega, if you will need to continue with a moisturizer.

To use, gently pump the serum onto your fingertips and dab it all over your face, neck, and décolletage. Repeat this process if required and then gently massage it into your skin.

It’s okay to use around the eyes and in fact, will greatly benefit that area.

Once complete, allow to soak in and then feel how soft and plump your skin is. If required, you can then apply moisturizer.

You may feel a slight pulling/tightening sensation as it dries. This is normal and is a result of the natural bark extracts contracting as they dry to give your skin a natural lift.

Skinega is pioneering a new category of ingredient-centric products where full transparency and ingredient disclosure is of paramount importance.

The INCI ((the International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients) list of ingredients are listed below the descriptions. This is a globally recognized standard that uses consistent language (scientific names) for ingredients. This list always differs from what you usually see on website ingredient descriptions as the Latin names aren’t always easily understood.

There is no legal obligation to include this extensive list on websites or marketing material other than the external packaging of products themselves, so you’ll often not see the full list.

SKINEGA SERUMIZER’S FIVE KEY NATURAL AND BIO-IDENTICAL COMPONENTS

Quad-Weight Hyaluronic Acid

QUAD WEIGHT HYALURONIC ACID®

Youthful looking skin is hydrated because it contains large amounts of natural hyaluronic acid (HA) in the dermis. HA also exists in your joints and even your eyeballs and is known for holding up to 1000 its weight in water. As we age, the amount of HA in the skin decreases, resulting in dehydrated wrinkly looking skin.

The challenging characteristic of topically applied HA in skincare products has been that it is too large a molecule to penetrate the skin. Skinega® focussed on creating a product that uses four molecular weights of HA to accommodate different depths of skin hydration.

Disodium Acetyl Glucosamine Phosphate

HABERLEA RHODOPENSIS EXTRACT (HRE)

Haberlea Rhodopensis is a plant that can survive total water loss for years without dying, and then completely re-hydrating once watered again. It is incredibly rich in a unique compound: myconoside, a polyphenol glucoside with exceptional antioxidant properties.

This extract has shown to maintain the fibroblast activity even under oxidative stress, by stimulating genes synthesis of elastin and collagen in senescent fibroblasts. Furthermore, it prevents UV-induced protein oxidation in the dermis (do not use as sunscreen).

Haberlea Rhodopensis Extract (HRE)

METHYLGLUCOSIDE PHOSPHATE, COPPER LYSINATE/PROLINATE COMPLEX

An active complex and pure source of bio-energy created by a leading edge green chemistry process. It contains a safe and pre-activated source of bio-energy in the form of Methylglucoside Phosphate to feed aging cells.

Methylglucoside is a monosaccharide, which is essentially a carbohydrate molecule derived from glucose. To reactivate collagen and elastin production, proline and lysine are included which are naturally occurring human amino acids that are precursors for hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine, the building blocks for collagen; boosted by copper to reactivate lysyl oxydase, the enzyme which enables reticulation and maturation of collagen and elastin.

Acacia Gum & Biopolymer Formula (AGB)

ACACIA GUM AND BIPOLYMER FORMULA (AGB)

AGB is an optimized blend of two natural ingredients with synergistic properties: a biopolymer and Acacia gum, derived from the bark of the Acacia tree indigenous to Africa. The biopolymer is naturally produced by a microorganism living in plant roots through a symbiosis system.

Acacia gum is an exudate obtained from the stem and branches of the African tree harvested by incision of the bark. This formula has been shown to have a temporary lifting and tightening effect on the skin, as well as smoothing the appearance of wrinkles within an hour of application.

Methylglucoside Phosphate, Copper Lysinate/Prolinate Complex

DISODIUM ACETYL GLUCOSAMINE PHOSPHATE

Our cells synthesize skin structural polymers from sugars, and more particularly Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and hyaluronan (HA) from N-acetylglucosamine-6-phosphate (NAG6P).

We use a concentrated and natural NAG6P obtained by from a green chemistry biotechnology process, which feeds the cutaneous cells, stimulates their regeneration and supports the production of GAGs at the epidermic and dermic level leaving the skin rejuvenated.

This active ingredient reactivates the synthesis of hyaluronic acid in the skin, thereby re-plumping the skin. This is what sets Skinega® Serumizer apart from other topically applied HA serums; it also works to hydrate from within.

THE SKIN

There are thousand page textbooks that cover everything to do with the skin. We can’t possibly explain everything on one page, so this is a very high-level explanation of the constituent parts that Serumizer targets, from skin hydration to firmness and suppleness.

THE EPIDERMIS

Contrary to popular belief, not all the cells in the epidermis are dead. The epidermis is made up of four or five layers (five on the palms and soles of feet), with the two bottom layers being alive. Each layer, in turn, is made up of multiple layers, except the base layer which contains the stem cells that produce different types of epidermal skin cells.

The outermost layer that we can all see is typically made up of 20-30 layers of skin cells joined by lipid cells (fat cells) which form the skin barrier moderating moisture retention and protecting the skin from external bacteria.

This two-compartment structure is renewed continuously, and when the barrier function is damaged by excessive soap use for example, the skin produces more lipids, self-regulating the transepidermal water loss, in theory at least.

THE DERMIS

Most people will have heard about collagen, some will have heard of elastin, and few will have heard of hyaluronic acid. These all occur naturally in the dermis. In between all of the blood vessels, hair follicles, sweat glands and other cells, there would just be empty space if it weren’t for what we call the Extra Cellular Matrix (ECM). The ECM fills up space which is created by magical cells called fibroblasts which secrete fibrous proteins, which both collagen and elastin are, and Glycosaminoglycans (GAG’s) which for the sake of simplicity are large sugar derived molecules that attract and hold a lot of water. Hyaluronan (Hyaluronic Acid) is one of the GAGs.

So putting it simply, the collagen, elastin and Hyaluronic Acid, all contribute to providing the skins firmness, elasticity, and hydration through its network of scaffolding and cushioning.

AGEING SKIN

30 YEARS OLD

40 – 50 YEARS OLD

50 -60 YEARS OLD

AGEING, HYDRATION AND MOISTURE

As we age our fibroblasts age as well, meaning that we produce less and less collagen, elastin and HA, and so the scaffolding and structure of skin begins to deteriorate.

Our skin is also exposed to so much pollution and UV light which also has a significant effect on the quality of our skin.

Our epidermis produces fewer lipids, and as a consequence the epidermis may become drier as we get older and the need to moisturize our skin will increase.

SIMPLIFICATION IS THE FUTURE OF SKINCARE

SKINEGA PRODUCTS ONLY CONTAIN CONCENTRATED, IMPACTFUL, SKIN-CARING, VEGAN INGREDIENTS AND NOTHING ELSE. UNDILUTED BY THICKENERS, TEXTURE MODIFIERS, COLORS, FRAGRANCE, OR POTENTIALLY HARMFUL INGREDIENTS.
 
IF AN INGREDIENT DOESN’T POSITIVELY IMPACT YOUR SKIN, YOU WON’T FIND IT IN OUR PRODUCTS.

If you use just four products in a skincare regime, you will almost certainly have well over 100 ingredients on your face. A significant number of those ingredients do nothing for the wellbeing of your skin, like thickeners, colors, fragrance, and often ingredients linked to health concerns. Simplification is all about stripping out the zero or negative impact ingredients, selecting only the best actives and combining them in concentrations that will positively impact your skin.

“Organic”, “natural”, “free from”, and “clean” are labels that, like “vegan”, should conclusively describe every ingredient in a product but unfortunately they don’t. Organic and natural don’t have to mean entirely organic or natural. “Free from” lists may as well read “may still contain” and “clean” addresses harmful ingredients, but not the zero impact ones like, thickeners, texture modifiers, colors or fragrance which do nothing to care for your skin.

WE DEFINE NATURAL IN FOUR SIMPLE WAYS

NATURALLY DERIVED FROM NATURE, OR MOLECULES NATURALLY FOUND IN YOUR SKIN (BIO-IDENTICAL)

ZERO SYNTHETIC THICKENERS, COLORS, FRAGRANCE, OR INGREDIENTS LINKED TO HEALTH CONCERNS

A NATURAL NUMBER OF INGREDIENTS PER PRODUCT, ALL AT MAXIMUM CONCENTRATION

ALWAYS VEGAN INGREDIENTS. NEVER TESTED ON ANIMALS

READ OUR CLEAN SKINCARE THOUGHT LEADERSHIP ARTICLES

 

WE ARE SIMPLIFYING LUXURY SKINCARE WITH ONLY FOUR PRODUCTS THAT CAN BE LAYERED DEPENDING ON YOUR NEEDS

Everyone’s skin is so unique, but all skin, whether on the face, neck, or décolletage, shares the same basic needs:

CLEANSING

Skin cell renewal is vital for glowing healthy skin. Gentle cleansing and occasional exfoliating creates a fresh and vibrant blank canvass to start each day.

BOOSTING

A lot of what happens in the skin requires deep penetration of ingredients to firm and reinforce the great work done by our natural skin’s building blocks. This is where our EGF Serum plays an important part, with reparative EGF strengthening the skin, and peptides to help reinforce the skin’s structure and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

CORRECTING

Correcting skin tone and pigmentation helps to keep your skin looking younger and fresher. Thinner more sensitive skin on your neck, décolletage and around your eyes, is more susceptible to discoloration and dark spots, so we make sure our products provide this extra nourishment, rather than having a separate product for this cause.

HYDRATING

Hydration is different to moisturizing. The skin can be moisturized but dehydrated. We have to attract moisture into the skin and keep it there, which is exactly what our Quad Weight Hyaluronic Acid does, made from Hyaluronic Acid, which is your skin’s naturally produced ‘hydration magnet’ that holds up to 1000 times its weight in water.

MOISTURIZING

Moisturizing the skin simply means reinforcing the lipid barrier, which is essentially the oils/fats in the skin that protect the body from many external factors, and also protects the skin from losing hydration. Where the skin is thinner with less sebaceous glands to secrete natural oils, such as around the eyes, the neck and décolletage, more moisture is required.

PROTECTING

Protection from the external environment comes not just in the form of lipid barrier reinforcement, but also antioxidants, essential for fighting off free radicals. Sun protection is also vital. (we have yet to launch a sun protection cream). Our moisturizer is capable of keeping the sensitive areas around your eyes moisturized while remaining robust enough for other parts of the face.

It is only the balance of these that changes depending on the area, but this doesn’t mean we need separate makeup remover, cleanser, toners, eye creams, neck cream, time of the day and night creams, or skin type products.

As we use fewer, more concentrated, carefully selected ingredients, all of our products can be used on delicate skin, so there’s no need for separate eye and neck products where the skin is thinner, sensitive, and has less natural oils.

REMOVE

CLEANSING

We have created a beautifully rich natural cleanser that not only completely removes makeup, as well as cleanses and hydrates your skin, but it is also Ph balanced, so you will never need a toner.


REVIVE

BOOSTING | CORRECTING | HYDRATING

Lightweight, oil free youth maintenance serum with our proprietary Quad Weight Hyaluronic Acid, and other natural and bio-identical skin structure boosters to hydrate the skin and leave it looking younger and more radiant.


Lightweight, oil free youth maintenance serum that delivers six powerful, concentrated peptides and plant derived epidermal growth factor (EGF), to smooth the appearance of wrinkles and improve skin firmness.


RECOVER

MOSTURIZING | PROTECTING

Our moisturizer is perfectly balanced with skin nourishing lipids, antioxidants, and hydration, so day and night, it can be worn on all areas of the skin, including around the eyes, and neck, as required.


You can combine these products depending on your skincare needs. For example, for combination skin, you can use the oil-free hydrating antioxidant serum only your T-zone, and layer a moisturizer on top of the normal skin areas.

For any skin type, you can use Serumizer to help boost your skin and hydrate each layer, before either adding a moisturizer or just leaving your skin with the Serumizer glow.

For any skin type, you can use the EGF Peptide serum in thinner areas like the eye and neck to help reduce wrinkles, before adding moisturizer all over for normal to dry skin, or just the oil-free Serumizer for oily skin.

For overnight moisturizing, the moisturizer is perfectly balanced and light enough for day use, yet rich enough to help your skin rest and repair as you sleep.

However unique your skin is, you now need only four products for day and night use (we recommend you also use SPF protection in the daytime which we do not yet produce).

Skinega is a luxury skincare brand, passionate about simplifying skincare, using higher concentrations of fewer ingredients, found naturally in skin or nature, and always vegan. We utilise scientific bio-identical ingredients derived from natural sources to identically mimic our skin’s natural chemistry.

With a primary focus on what our skin recognises as natural rather than only raw green natural, they are able to achieve results far beyond traditional ‘natural’ skincare regimes. Also, we don’t believe in diluting products with synthetic thickeners, colors, fragrance, or any ingredient that does not directly impact the wellbeing and youth maintenance of the skin.

OUR STORY


Fraser Hill. Founder & CEO
Skinega started as our consumer journey to seek out simpler, more transparent, clean, luxury skincare. I had been working in executive consulting and research for nearly twenty years, in the UK, Asia, Eastern Europe, and North America. My partner worked in luxury skincare in Beverly Hills for many years, and we both used to think we had sensitive skin because our skin reacted badly to so many different brands. It turned out only elephant skin is robust enough to withstand some of the chemical potions sold as skincare these days. With 30-99 ingredients per product being normal, with so many of those ingredients having nothing to do with the well-being of the skin, like thickeners, fragrance, texture modifiers and so on, and with active ingredients so vastly diluted by the sheer number of them, I gave up my old work, and my new research project commenced.

We believe the organic and natural trend is fuelled by demand for cleaner, safer skincare. We also believe that “organic,” “natural,” “free from,” and “clean” are labels that, like “vegan,” should conclusively describe every ingredient in a product, but unfortunately they don’t. These terms have wrongly become synonymous with safer, cleaner skincare, as legally, organic and natural doesn’t have to mean entirely organic or natural. In fact, legally, there is no definition of natural in US law as it relates to skincare. A product can read “Made with organic ingredients” and only contain 70% organic ingredients. Vegan enthusiasts would not be happy if their “made with vegan ingredients” sandwich had a 29% chunk of ham in it, and we think it’s also unacceptable in skincare.

Furthermore, “free from” lists and “clean” are labels that only refer to the bad ingredients in skincare? We thought, “How can it be, in an industry that takes our delicate and most exposed organ, the skin, and adds the word ‘care,’ that marketing the exclusion of toxic ingredients, carcinogens, endocrine disruptors and other nasty ingredients, was a valid point of differentiation? Shouldn’t skin ‘care’ means none of these ingredients are ever included, period?”

The word “clean” to us didn’t mean “no bad ingredients,” it meant “no ingredients that do not positively impact the skin,” and all of these discoveries about lax laws and regulations, confusing terms and selective ingredient disclosure, led us to our lightbulb moment. We wanted to make luxury, vegan skincare with fewer ingredients at higher concentrations, that was “clean” by our definition: undiluted by thickeners, fragrance, colors, or controversial chemicals. If an ingredient doesn’t positively contribute to the wellbeing of skin, it won’t be found in our products. Of course it’s much easier to just make the product look, feel and smell pretty, and then add a few active ingredients and only shout and scream about those particular ingredients, but we wanted more, and we believed consumers would also want more.

Excluding fragrance, colors, texture modifiers, and controversial ingredients was the easy part. Thickening a product without diluting it with synthetic thickeners was the challenge. The answer came in the form of our proprietary US protected ingredient called Quad Weight Hyaluronic Acid (QWHA). Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies that is abundant in our skin and is largely responsible for skin hydration and “plumpness.” We created a proprietary vegan blend of four molecularly weights of HA that gives not only multi-level skin hydration but also is rich enough to control the viscosity of our products, delivering skin nourishment while simultaneously eliminating the need for bulking agents and thickeners. You will not find QWHA anywhere else.

Furthermore, we felt the industry generated ‘need’ for a complex array of products, all for an area of the size of a small dinner plate was simply not necessary. As our world gets more and more complex, and our time becomes more and more scarce, daily routines to beautify and protect skin should be getting simpler, not more complicated. So we worked hard to identify our skin’s six main needs and within a year we will launch four products that can collectively be layered to address these needs, eliminating the “need” for separate day and night products, eye, neck and face products.

We started our consumer journey wanting what everone else wants. We were not “industry veterans” but that ended up being to our advantage as we had no preconceived notions, but we did know what we wanted as a consumer and we worked hard to create it. Real clean vegan luxury skincare, defined in the simplest way, with fewer ingredients at higher concentration, fewer products, and fewer steps to healthy glowing skin.

OUR FORMULA

Often skincare formulators will start with an area of the skin they wish to create a product for, or perhaps an ingredient they want to introduce to the market and build products around it.

We believe that how we approached it is different. We started with studying the science, the dermatology journals, and working with scientists to establish exactly what is required for a holistic skincare regime. This was when we developed our six core needs: cleansing, boosting, correcting, hydrating, moisturizing, and protecting.

Once we understood that a combination of these elements is all that’s required for any area of skin, we set about identifying the best ingredients for these six functions, and where we couldn’t find them, we created them.

Safety was our first prerogative, so we compiled a list of 3600 ingredients banned by three of the most important legal, regulatory bodies of the US, the UK, and Japan. Collectively this forms the most comprehensive “free from” list of skincare igredients in the world.

Then for each product, we studied over 700 ingredients in detail. We categorized them all by functionality, and then we ranked them based on a list of criteria including their efficacy, safety, reputation, whether they were natural or bio-identical, and other criteria. Then based on that rank, we kept scoring them out until we got to under fifteen ingredients per products, all at maximum concentration, and then further developed unique formulas based on this research.

What we ended up with was four products, collectively used in varying amounts to service the needs of any part of your skin, be it the eye area, the neck, décolletage, or other areas of the face, day and night, for all different skin types.

VISION

To create ten million younger looking smiles with simpler, safer, vegan and cruelty-free, concentrated and effective luxury skincare.

MISSION

To simplify and better define safe and effective luxury skincare that’s vegan and cruelty-free, free from synthetic thickeners, colors, fragrance, and ingredients linked to health concerns. Designed by us, for us, and all others that care about what goes in their skin, and not just on their skin.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

INTRODUCTION

WHY JOIN?

It’s a very strightforward and easy way to earn extra cash for doing what you would do anyways as a customer – sharing your love for Skinega with friends and family. You can also share it with anyone you think would share your passion for vegan, natural and bio-identical skincare products, made with fewer ingredients, that don’t contain synthetic thickeners,
color, fragrance, or other ingredients linked to health concerns.

WHY SKINEGA?

We encourage you to read through the website, and expand the information available in the “SKINCARE AWARE”, “REDEFINING NATURAL”, and “COMING SO0N” pages. Here you will find wealth of information that we hope will clearly lay out the reasons why Skinega is a great skincare company.

WHY IS IT FREE?

There are no costs, no catches, no convoluted commission schemes, or hidden charges. Ideally, you will already be a customer because we love people who are passionate about our products to be sharing their personal experience. However, we also recognize that some people may love what the product is about, and know plenty potential customers, but who may not use the products themself. For example, David, the 18-year-old student who has a large extended family, and lots of friends who he can reach out to and share the story with, and make some exta money to put towards his studies.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

We have focused diligently on keeping this as simple as possible. We know everyone has busy lives, and earning a secondary income should not be a full-time job.

Once you sign up, you are given a unique website link/URL, which would be something like www.skinega.com/bp/Clare. The “bp” just stands for Brand Partner, and what come after the “bp/,” is your username so do try your first name initially if you’re comfortable with that, assuming it hasn’t already gone. This becomes your personal website.

We give you simple links and tools to share on social media, via email, and you can even print out your link and handout leaflets if you want to. As long as you share your personal link, anytime anyone goes to the site and makes a purchase, you will recieve 15%, paid to you Paypal account. It’s also worth nothing that all the customers you refer also get 10% off on every
purchase, if they come through your link. They cannot get this discount anywhere else.

All we require is your PayPal email address, so you don’t even need to share bank details with us.

PAYMENTS

DO I HAVE TO GIVE MY BANK DETAILS?

No. All we require from you initially is you name, email address and your PayPal email (if diffirent from your personal email address). In the US, until you have earned $500 in commission in one tax year, we do not require any more information. After you’ve earned $500 in commission, we will need for you to complete a W-9 form, so that we can fulfill our obligations to IRS. Our commitements to IRS are to report earnings of our Brand Partners, only once they reach a $600 earnings threshold, and we dont this by submitting a 1099-MISC form, based on the information provided in the W-9 form.

For other countries we will also stop at a $500 commission threshold and contact you to discuss what extra information we will need. We only do this at that point so it’s simpler for people to sign up and get started without the paperwork burden. Once you’re earned $500 in commission you will obviously have a vested interest in continuing, at which point we may potentially require more paperwork.

DON’T YOU NEED MY SS NUMBER OR TAX ID?

In the US, Skienga has an obligation to report to the IRS once you have hit the $600 earnings threshold through your sales of Skinega products. We don’t require your SS or Tax ID until you’ve earned $500 in one tax year, at which point we will request this information through issuing you with a W-9. Skinega in turn, will report these payments, after the $600 threshold, to the IRS, in a form called the 1099-MISC.

It is you responsibility to report all you earnings to IRS, even $0-$599. Skinega’s obligation is only to report IRS once you’ve earned more than $600 in the tax year.

A useful summary on this subject can be found at
http://www.investopedia.com/articles/personal-finance/082714/purpose-w9-form.asp. if you require more information, please contact a personal tax professional.

For other countries you should check you local tax laws before proceeding. We are not responsible for your taxes.

DO I HAVE TO PAY TAX?

You are responsible fo your tax affairs. In the US, it is you reponsibility to report all your earnings to IRS, even $0-$599. Skinega’s obligation is only to report to IRS once you’ve earned more than $600 in a given tax year.

A useful summary on this subject can be found at
