How to bring balance to your skin

Restore total equilibrium with our antioxidant-loaded Aqualight Moisture Gel Lotion. This super sheer moisture veil is an infusion of Ephemer™, Marine Collagen, Manuka Honey, Pohutukawa and Squalane. It absorbs instantly to protect skin from environmental aggressors, brightens, balances and boosts pure radiance.

Moisture retention and well-hydrated skin without dryness or any concerns, usually indicate a perfectly balanced pH level. When your skin shows any signs of acne, psoriasis, eczema or redness this means your skin's pH levels are out of balance and needs attention. 

What are pH levels in your skin? On a scale of 0 to 14, pH stands for "potential of hydrogen" and measures the acidity of the skin, a healthy pH level for your skin would ideally sit between 4.7 and 5.75. Choose skincare products with a pH level similar to your own to ensure your skin stays beautifully balanced.

Maintaining a healthy pH level of your skin begins with staying hydrated! Drinking water is the key to healthy skin, it flushes out toxins that prevent harmful bacteria which cause pimples and acne. Your skin will be more radiant than ever when you keep hydrated, live a healthy lifestyle, and follow a good skincare routine.

You can have a balanced skin pH by including certain ingredients into your skincare routine along with choosing products with a PH between 4.7 and 5.75. We recommend adding Aqualight Moisture Gel Lotion into your Am and PM skincare ritual, as it is formulated at a PH of 5.0-5.3 AND contains our antioxidant-rich hero ingredient Ephemer™. Pollution, sun damage and cosmetics can throw your pH balance off therefore take advantage of antioxidants – they neutralise free radicals to protect the skin and support your natural skin acidity. Ephemer™ acts as the right hand man for keeping the skin beautifully balanced.

Pohutukawa, a New Zealand ingredient found in our very own backyard, is an effective anti-aging ingredient and is particularly effective on dry or dehydrated skin. In traditional Māori herbal medicine, Pohutukawa was used topically for wounds and abrasions due to its natural healing properties. Redness and inflammation can be relieved by Pohutukawa, so it's a skin saviour to stabilise your skin. This has been specifically formulated into Aqualight Moisture Gel Lotion in order to provide these benefits and to maintain a balanced pH level in your skin.

Using products and ingredients that feed your skin with the right nutrients improves its optimal level, barrier function, and moisture retention.
