ActivCalm Skin Quenching Serum
Winner of Her World Beauty Awards 2022 Editor's Choice “Best Hydrating Serum”
An electrolyte-filled cocktail that works like an energy drink for your skin to effectively quench and soothe dehydrated skin by drawing and locking moisture in the skin barrier, which in turn optimises the other ingredients to rebalance the skin’s microbiome and reduce skin sensitivity.
Electrolytes are the star ingredients that make energy drinks the go-to choice when one is in dire need of hydration. When applied to the skin, electrolytes provide the same intense hydration, as they are made up of the same minerals that help attract and retain water effectively. When present in the skin, they also help to regulate pH and hydration levels.
Unlike other products that just contain the popular moisturising agent hyaluronic acid, this hydration powerhouse leverages the hydrating power of electrolytes, and also supplements the skin with other Natural Moisturising Factors (NMFs) such as amino acids, PCA and saccharides that make up our skin barrier; providing a more holistic approach to hydration.
For lasting quenching that builds long-term moisture reserves inside your skin, look no further than these electrolyte dreams.
Non-comedogenic and formulated for all skin types, especially dry and dehydrated skin. Safe for use during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

- 10% Amino acids, electrolytes, & natural amino acid derivative Pyroglutamic acid (PCA): Strengthen skin barrier and effectively deliver soothing hydration with this electrolyte cocktail. Electrolytes are minerals (potassium, sodium, calcium, chloride, phosphate, and magnesium) that attract water, and are lost through sweat. With their extremely small molecular size (<500DA), they are able to penetrate quicker into the skin, just like how sports drinks help to replace lost water and electrolytes after a vigorous workout. By replenishing electrolytes with this skin quenching serum, the skin cells and in turn, the skin, are able to regulate and rebalance their pH level, allowing them to attract and hold moisture to stay hydrated for longer hours.
Amino acids and PCAs are building blocks of proteins that are also part of the skin's natural moisturising NMF. They work well with electrolytes to hydrate and strengthen the skin, and increase the skin's resilience.
- Encapsulated Sugar Technology: Boosts longer-lasting hydration by layering a protective film over the skin that locks in essential NMF actives and releasing sugar actives into the skin over time. Skin is 2.5 times more moisturised in 1 to 8 hours after a single topical application. After 24 hours, the skin remains moisturised and is 20 times more moisturised.
- Hydrolysed Yeast Protein: Rebalances the skin’s microbiome, the ecosystem of naturally occurring bacteria on the skin’s surface. By influencing the synthesis of lipids in the epidermis, it speeds up recovery of our skin’s natural protective barrier and rectifies dehydration.
