A closer look at the JSH-V7™ Complex
Think of our signature JSH-V7™ Complex as an ‘elixir of youth’ that we have infused into our Balancing Vitamin Cleanser, Pro-Collagen Vitamin Serum and Probiotic Vitamin Moisturiser to support optimal skin health. Our bespoke blend harnesses the synergistic powers of science and nature with seven key research-backed vitamins, nutrients and botanicals for radiant, youthful skin. Read on to discover the incredible benefits of each of these ingredients.
Antioxidant actions support collagen production + protect and brighten.
A holy grail in skincare when it comes to protecting skin cells from UV damage, environmental pollution and other premature agers. Scientifically speaking, this super-antioxidant does this by a process known as neutralisation of free radicals. In the right concentration and form, Vitamin C is a safe and highly efficacious acid that will visibly brighten your skin, even out skin tone, help fade acne scarring, and overall give your complexion a level of resilience to external aggressors. We use 2 different forms of stable Vitamin C for optimal efficacy. Essentially stable Vitamin C allows the nutrient to penetrate into the skin before hydrolysing enzymes release it back into its active form to do its best cellular work! In-vitro studies have proven the results of these forms of Vitamin C to increase both collagen I and collagen III production, lighten skin discolouration, reduce the size and number of wrinkles, improve acne and protect the skin from environmental damage.
Hydrates + strengthens skin barrier for optimal skin health.
The ultra-moisturising nutrient Pro-vitamin B5, also known as panthenol, rapidly restores moisture, helps the skin retain hydration levels and protects the skin’s barrier, whilst shielding it from irritation. This is achieved through various functions, as Pro-Vitamin B5 acts as both a humectant that attracts water to and holds it in the skin, as well as an emollient, which smoothes and softens the skin, essentially ‘sealing the cracks’ to assist the skin in retaining the moisture level. This result of topical application is improved skin texture and elasticity.
Marine Polyphenols (Kelp)
Inhibits enzymes that cause visible signs of ageing for a youthful complexion.
Our Seaweed Extract from Kelp is a true botanical hero from the sea. It contains a high-purity Fucoidan and is rich in Marine Polyphenols, developed specifically to provide high-tech age-defying benefits. Derived from Undaria pinnatifida species of seaweed, this unique and 100% natural ingredient has been shown to inhibit many of the key enzymes responsible for skin damage. In vitro studies have confirmed that this seaweed inhibits enzymes that lead to wrinkles and reduced skin elasticity, making it an incredibly powerful natural age-defying ingredient. Clinical results showed that it reduces wrinkle depth by 9%, roughness by 8% and increases skin elasticity by 17%, plus improves overall skin appearance by 60% in just 12 weeks!
Deeply soothing for calm skin.
This super-flower is known to have incredible soothing and anti-inflammatory properties, thanks to its potent dose of flavonoid, saponins and triterpenoids, making it ideal for assisting with overall skin health, whilst combating breakouts, rosacea, eczema and sensitivity.
Grape Seed Oil
High levels of linoleic acid target breakouts + redness.
This lightweight oil is extracted from the seeds of grapes and is light in texture for high absorption into the skin where it lends a plethora of skin-enhancing and preventative properties. Grape seed oil is non-comedogenic, meaning it doesn’t clog pores, making it suitable for all skin types. It’s key actions include moisturising, lightening dark circles, fading scars, tightening the skin and helping protect the skin against sun damage and external aggressors. This is achieved due to the high levels of omega fatty acids, vitamin E and unique molecular structure, which is rich in polyphenol compounds such as powerful antioxidants known as proanthocyanidins.
Rejuvenates damaged skin to minimise imperfections.
Sometimes referred to as ‘liquid gold’ for the skin, Frankincense is an essential oil that has been used for centuries in different cultures around the world as a ceremonial staple, from the Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine traditions to being a prized element in Cleopatra’s beauty routine. It brings with it natural astringent properties, which mean that it helps balance oil production whilst gently tightening and strengthening the skin. It has the ability to improve the skin tone, elasticity and defence mechanisms against bacteria and blemishes.
Pro-antioxidant to protect skin from damage.
Also known as tocopherol in the skincare world, Vitamin E is a naturally occurring pro-antioxidant that protects your skin against free radicals, whilst moisturising and soothing.
