ActivCalm Quick Soothing SOS Serum
Winner of "Best Soothing Serum" in Harper's Bazaar Beauty Awards 2022
Uplift your mood and stress-proof your skin with this fast-acting soothing serum that is clinically proven to soothe irritated skin by up to 60% within 1 hour and up to 100% in 24 hours.
Drawing upon the concept of neurocosmetics which shows that the state of your mind influences how your skin reacts, this quick soothing serum contains a blend of mood-enhancers that imparts anti-irritant and soothing benefits to the skin, visibly relieving the skin of sensitivity and redness.
Enhanced with anti-pollution benefits, it works as an anti-pollution defense shield against skin inflammation and oxidative stress to prevent premature ageing. With consistent use, it also balances the skin's microbiome and fortifies the skin's natural defences to minimise sensitised reactions and the impact of stress, pollution and ageing.
Non-comedogenic, specially formulated for all skin types, especially eczema-prone, dehydrated and hyper-sensitive skin, and perfect for individuals whose skin suffers from stress, fatigue, or environmental damage. It is also suitable for use for men to soothe redness and skin discomfort from shaving.

COSMOS-certified 10% Alkaline Amino Acid Extract: Derived from Acorn Squash Seeds, its quick desensitising action soothes away neurogenic inflammation and limits the skin reactivity with clinically proven results.
When used 3 times daily, a high dose of the alkaline amino extract is able to reduce erythema, a skin rash or reaction caused by injured or inflamed blood capillaries, by up to 60% in an hour. This is further reduced by 70% in three hours. An in-vivo test of 20 women has also shown significant reduction in overall skin sensitivity of more than 24% within seven days of daily use, and more than 42% within 14 days of once-daily use.
French Polynesia Alteromonas Ferment Extract: A highly purified, blue technology marine exopolysaccharide originating from the French Polynesia, works as an anti-pollution defense shield against skin inflammation that also reduces free radical activity and defends skin by chelating heavy metals, effectively shielding the skin against oxidative stress and building up the skin’s resistance against external aggressions and sun damage.
Hydrolysed Yeast Protein: A prebiotic that helps support and maintain a healthy and balanced microbiome ecosystem. Perpetuating the production of key skin lipids, including ceramides, to speed up the recovery of the skin’s natural protective barrier, it also helps to reduce inflammation caused by pathogenic bacteria, and improve overall skin hydration.
Sodium Hyaluronate: Proven to be able to reach deep into the skin all thanks to its small molecular size to mix with, attract, and retain water, it also promotes skin microcirculation and helps maintain normal metabolism and nutrient absorption, resulting in a more hydrated and youthful appearance with softer and smoother skin.
