We often take oxygen for granted. We’re lucky to live around this free-flowing element, oxygen allows us to function on the tasks that many around the world may struggle to perform on a daily basis. Breathe with ease, thrive from energy and to control stress would become impossible without help from oxygen.
Four decades ago, Clinogen Laboratories was born by the innovative Sujata Jolly, with 30 years of experience in the health and skincare industry, Sujata found a gap in the market that allowed her to elevate and showcase the launch of Clinogen. With the intention to treat three main skin concerns that many of us suffer from a daily basis. From the likes of unwanted peach-fuzz, an unflattering scar or a common skin disorder such as acne, Sujata compelled an array of products to cover the most problematic skin concerns to date.
Lucky for me, Abigail from Freedom PR kindly sent over a selection of Oxypeel products for me to experience and to provide my loyal readership with an insight on the brand itself. Oxypeel, the first-ever, innovative creation from Sujata Jolly that uses oxygen therapy to treat daily skin disorders, such as acne, scarring and pigmentation.
So, how does OxyPeel work differently to other acne treatments on the overwhelming market? Firstly, oxygen therapy and gentle exfoliation begin on pustular and active acne, unblocking follicular cells and dissolving keratinised cells, cells that are filled with Keratin which is what makes our skin waterproof. Secondly, damaged skin tissue is degraded which enables oxygen to reach the sub-dermal and epidermal layers on the skin, this acts as a rubbish bin, eliminating excess waste.
The Oxypeel Foaming Milk, a product that should have its own category in terms of skin cleansing. An exfoliating cleanser that not only accelerates cell removal of dead skin, but encourages a fresher, more vibrant-looking complexion, and I’m about to explain how this cleanser does this. On contact with skin, retinyl palmitate cleverly converts into pure retinol thanks to the skins natural enzymes. This well talked-about ingredient treats a broad spectrum of skin concerns from uncontrollable blemishes, uneven skin tone and pesky fine lines and wrinkles. Allantoin is an effective moisturising agent that not only prevents water loss but also encourages wound healing from present skin irritations you might be dealing with. There’s also aloe vera and wheat germ oil, both of which offer a protective soothing base to the skin.
You can apply the OxyPeel Foaming Milk in two different ways, you can, be boring and apply with clean hands onto damp skin and massage or, by squirting two to three pumps into the clear, measuring lid and apply from the lid with the facial brush provided. Using the facial brush will give you a thorough, cleansing experience and twice the amount of foam to manoeuvre over the skin. I’ll let you decide on how to apply the cleanser, but just let me tell you this, applying with the brush is a complete game-changer in the field of how to cleanse the skin. It’s worth mentioning that by using the brush, you’re creating less friction on the skin which prevents active blemishes from becoming aggravated.
A solid cleanser isn’t complete without its trusty sidekick of a moisturiser. Oxypeel created a treatment cream that worked in harmony with the glorious foaming milk. This treatment cream from Clinogen works by accelerating skin healing while preventing microbial growth on the skin. Microbial growth is the technical word for bacteria, and as we know, bacteria lives and breathes around us, and especially on the skin where bacteria multiply causing possible skin infections such as blemishes, spots and those dreaded white heads.
The ingredients, starting with comfrey & lavender that both provide a calming, desensitizing effect on the skin. We then have Arnica to soothe and alleviate itchiness from present irritation on the skin. Due to its high iodine content, sea kelp is perfect for anyone suffering from dry and flaky patches on the skin. Slowly moving onto borage oil, a trend ingredient for 2019, this nourishing oil treats the driest of skins without over-moisturising. It’s also lighter than the majority of oils so skin won’t be left feeling or looking greasy. For sun protection, titanium and zinc oxide are combined together, acting like mirrors on the skin by reflecting light that hits the surface to protect against the harmful beaming sun-rays.
Not only does this hydrate, but also signals the healing process within the basal layer of the skin. To me and you, this simply means the deepest layer of the five epidermal layers. Upon application, this light, fluffy cream sinks immediately into the skin leaving no signs of product residue except a welcoming sheen of glow. If you’re more on the drier side then par this with a hydrating serum or essence before applying this treatment cream.
If I’m being totally honest with you, its a struggle for me to compare this treatment cream to anything I have experienced before, now that’s saying something. Have I tempted you enough to dive into the world of Clinogen? Do I think this is a game-changer within the skincare world? Yes, if you’re currently dealing with problematic skin then look no further a field.
