Has a summer spent outdoors in the sun, sand and surf got your skin feeling a little worse for wear? Fear not: returning luminosity [and a healthy boost of collagen production] to your skin is easier than you might think.

Our founder Lucy Vincent shares a science-backed solution for skin repair and rejuvenation after UV exposure...


Ask Lucy

Despite a rigorous commitment to SPF, seeking-out shade or your favourite hat, sometimes sun exposure [accidental or otherwise] can wreak havoc on the skin. The result? Dryness, pigmentation or red, inflamed skin.

As we head towards the tail end of summer in the Southern Hemisphere, there's no better time to consider introducing a nourishing dose of moisture into your skincare routine. Cellular Repair Body + Face Lotion offers the gold-standard in UV repair — independently proven to accelerate skin’s recovery from sun damage and boost collagen.

“We believe in simplicity and effectiveness. Our Cellular Repair Body + Face Lotion is a prime example of how a single, well formulated product can revolutionise skin health, offering powerful results head-to-toe without overcomplicating skincare routines.”

Independent in-vitro testing of Cellular Repair Body + Face Lotion, showcases extraordinary efficacy in skin repair and rejuvenation*:

• Accelerates skin repair in compromised skin by stimulating Type I collagen synthesis by 150%.

• A significant 38.9% increase in Type I collagen biosynthesis. This collagen is essential for maintaining skin’s elasticity and firmness.

• Post-UV exposure, the lotion offers a remarkable 52% improvement in cellular recovery, an essential factor in combating photoaging.

• Even after UV exposure, the lotion boosted Type I collagen by 16%, enhancing skin’s recovery from sun damage.

So, what exactly is in-vitro testing?

Translated from Latin, the term in-vitro means "in glass" — in-vitro testing is carried out in a lab; as opposed to clinical trials which take place on a living human subject. Although both forms of testing are valuable, the scientific nature of in-vitro testing in a lab environment removes human bias and provides objective results on efficacy.

And why is Type I collagen important?

Although there's 5 key types of collagen found in the body, 90% of your body’s collagen is made up of Type I. Providing structure to your skin [along with bones, tendons and ligaments], Type I collagen is densely packed and declines naturally as we age. UV exposure also causes collagen to break down more rapidly.
