What makes this product unique?
Those bombarded with high concentrations of ingredients might be wondering how much 0.2% - 0.3% of actives could perform on skin. The truth is that, well-studied supermolecules don’t need high percentage to give marvellous results.
Studies on Madecassoside have shown:-
- 0.05% inhibits UV-induced pigmentation
- 0.1% prevents signs of aging
- 0.2% supports barrier functions & discharges redness and itchiness
Madecassoside is the soul of Centella Asiatica Extract. A gigantic weight of Centella Asiatica leaves derives merely a small amount of purified Centella Asiatica Extract. Scarce filtrates of the Centella Asiatica Extract further essence out the finally pure, ultra-precious Madecassoside. Truth be told, 0.3% Madecassoside concentrate marks a highly-functional yet appropriate potency for all skin types.
On the other hand, for Beta-Glucan deliberately derived from Oat, research reveals that:-
- 0.05% speeds up injured barrier recovery
- 0.1% firms and smooths skin texture
Immersed in Saccharide Isomerate (a hydrating humectant that magnets moisture and binds water to the skin long-lastingly), Geek & Gorgeous Stress Less levels up the peace-giving game by including 0.3% Madecassoside & 0.2% Beta-Glucan for maximum anti-irritating & anti-aging benefits.
All Geek & Gorgeous products are fragrance free, alcohol free and never tested on animals.
What does it do?
Defusing tetchy, redness-prone appearance, Geek & Gorgeous Stress Less’ weightless, aqueous supermolecules (Madecassoside & Beta-Glucan) melt into the skin to start restoring damaged, inflamed structures from overuse of skincare actives or environmental irritations. The perfect solution that transports calm to your persistently blotchy complexion, this serum also delivers a welcome wave of moisture to dehydrated skin, and acts quickly to cast a calmer and more harmonious barrier function.
Who is this product for?
A protective serum for all skin types, especially sensitive or dehydrated skin. Best for use in couple with strong actives to buffer possible irritations.
