Supercharged - the next generation of active body care
It’s an exciting time to be alive when we get to see the benefits of scientifically derived facial skincare approaches now being reflected in supercharged body care formulations – especially when such offerings fall within the effective, natural and organic body care products realm.
From conversations between staff and customers alike, it appears there are many of us who care about the health, vitality, and aesthetics of our skin in its entirety. Thus, having the opportunity to nurture our largest organ from the decolletage down in a similar vein to that of which we address our face, is a welcomed extension of our regime.
Thankfully, we are increasingly being graced with supercharged natural and organic bodycare products such as cleansing, hydrating and treatment options, which include ingredient profiles that have previously often been reserved for the face. Such formulations include stabilised vitamins, antioxidants, ceramides, niacinamide, enzymes and acids to name a few. The inclusion of these converted ingredients allows one the ability to target specific body care goals or concerns that we may simultaneously desire for our face, addressing our skin as a whole.
For instance, congestion and breakouts are often predominantly associated facially, however it can be common to experience these on our back, chest, and backsides. This can be particularly apparent during warmer times of the year when we are naturally creating more sebum, when we are engaging in exercise and creating additional sweat, moisture, and cell build-up, or are sitting for long periods of time due to work environments where similar conditions affect our skin. Incorporating the use of acids and enzymes in this instance, effectively yet gently exfoliates the build-up of cells and further cleanses pores. Tailored options on our shelves we would recommend for these concerns are Josh Rosebrook’s Body Acid Serum, and Agent Nateur’s Holi (WASH) Ageless Resurfacing Body Cleanser
Josh Rosebrook’s ‘Body Acid Serum is an elevated resurfacing treatment for the body. Blended in a silky hydrating base is a potent synergistic medley of acids that gently exfoliate to remove dead cell build-up, smooth skin texture, and promote even skin tone.
Inspired by the award-winning Daily Acid Toner, the same powerful approach has been taken with the acid medley and adapted this full-body formula that effectively works with thicker skin at different depths and speeds to help brighten and moisturise.’
Simply wanting the skin on our body to reflect the quality of that on our face can be assisted by ensuring our body care is enriched with protective antioxidants and stabilised vitamins such as vitamin c and vitamin A for the repairing qualities they can produce. A favourite and best-seller of ours here at The Lab for both staff and customers is Sans Ceauticals Activator 7 Body + Hair +Face Oil
‘A reparative, high-dose vitamin oil that has become a cult favourite. Used daily, this potent, multifunctional oil is formulated to optimise your skin's hydration levels, stimulate cell repair, increase collagen production and boost skin tone and elasticity. A bathroom staple for building healthy, luminous skin. Safe for use during pregnancy.’
These emerging supercharged body care additions are providing powerful answers to the questions of why the skin on our bodies needs to be so starkly differentiated from that of the face. In our view, the attention, needs and quality of the skincare we apply to our faces, can of course holistically extend to the rest of our body – as ultimately, we remain one and whole, even when acknowledging all of our intrinsic parts.
