Our unique After Sun Mist is the first of its kind on the post sun exposure market to contain proven Sol-C Micro Collagen Peptides, which improve hydration, barrier function and collagen synthesis. Too much sun not only leaves us rosey coloured and tired, it can also come with a higher chance of nasty skin conditions. Aside from skin damage, excess sun exposure also breaks down collagen at a much faster rate than normal, how rude. It’s why we made sure to add micro collagen molecules, which absorb into the epidermis and create a film on the skin’s surface, along with Vitamin C, which helps to support collagen production and prevent pigmentation.
- Citrus Aurantium Amara (Bitter Orange) Flower Water
Anti-inflammatory and gently antibacterial with the added benefit of having a delicious, fresh, natural scent.
- Sodium PCA
Sodium PCA is the sodium salt of pyroglutamic acid (PCA). PCA is a naturally occurring component of skin and makes up part of the “natural moisturizing factors” that maintain a healthy epidermis.
- Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract*
Hydrating and anti-inflammatory, has a cooling effect on skin.
- Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract*
Offers multiple benefits, especially for dry, damaged and irritated skin. Aloe is hydrating, soothing, anti-inflammatory and has anti-itch properties.
- GELITA® Sol C Hydrolysed Collagen Peptides
Micro collagen molecules absorb into the epidermis and create a film on the skin’s surface. Clinical studies on Sol™ C have shown an improvement in skin hydration, barrier function and increased collagen synthesis.
- Sodium Hyaluronate
Incredibly hydrating. Hyaluronic acid absorbs well into skin and holds water resulting in skin plumping and hydrating. Salt form (sodium hyaluronate) is more effective than pure hyaluronic acid due to its greater compatibility with the skin.
- Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract*
Hydrating, anti-inflammatory and gently antiseptic.
- Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract*
Protects cells and is rich in antioxidants. Has anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory properties. Promotes the health and quality of collagen.
- Camellia Sinensis (White Tea) Leaf Extract*
Protects skin against oxidative damage to keep collagen and elastin fibres in top condition.
- Melissa Officinalis Leaf Extract*
Rich in antioxidants, it’s soothing and gentle on the skin.
- Ascorbic Acid
Vitamin C supports collagen production. It’s an antioxidant and reduces the formation of pigmentation.
Glycerin is a humectant (a type of moisturizing agent that draws water into the skin).
- Sodium Levulinate
Helps to condition and soften skin. Sodium levulinate is gently antimicrobial. Also a common ingredient in food products.
- Sodium Anisate
Natural preservative obtained from anise and fennel. Keeps the product from going yucky.
- Citric Acid
Derived from citrus fruits, Citric Acid keeps the pH of the product stable. Also commonly used in food products.
- Disodium EDTA
Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid. Penetration enhancer, helps other ingredients to penetrate deeper into the skin. Occasionally this ingredient gets a bad name because penetration enhancement is bad if the other ingredients are bad. But penetration enhancement is good when it’s combined with ingredients that are good – makes sense! So for our After Sun Mist, this ingredient helps to deliver even better results from all the other amazing ingredients.
* Certified Organic Ingredients
Chemical preservatives. Increase product shelf life and keep the product bacteria free – but are also associated with increased rates of breast cancer. Some skins can also become sensitive or irritated by products containing parabens. So no Parabens.
- PEGS, SLS and SLES
PEGS (Polyethylene glycols) – Humectant and solvent. High concern with this ingredient for contamination, and moderate concern for toxicity.
SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) and SLES (Sodium Laureth Sulfate) – Emulsifying agent and surfactant. Moderate concern for skin, eye and lung irritation, and moderate concern for organ toxicity. So none of these!
Fragrances are known to be irritants for all skin types, so we have kept them out.
Not Tested on Animals:
Because that’s mean.
Ways to Use After Sun Mist
Spritz onto clean skin after sun exposure or when skin is feeling dehydrated, hot and sensitised.
Sol™ C collagen peptides are produced by gentle enzymatic hydrolysis to produce super fine micro collagen peptides that both absorb into the epidermis and form a protective barrier on the skin’s surface improving skin hydration and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. Both in-vivo and in-vitro studies have demonstrated improved skin hydration, barrier function and increased collagen synthesis with Sol™ C collagen peptides.
Spritz our After Sun Mist onto face, neck, décolletage and even parts of the body any time you are feeling hot, bothered and in need of a soothing hydrating boost (particularly after sun exposure). Make sure to close your mouth and eyes before you mist, and remove glasses!
You can use our After Sun Mist any time of day, especially when your skin is feeling hot, dry or sensitised. For best results it is ideal to mist onto clean skin, but After Sun Mist is still able to soothe and improve hydration & barrier function when spritzed over the top of your other skin products too.
You can use your After Sun Mist throughout the day whenever you feel the need for some skin soothing and extra hydration.
Including Collagen Beauty™ in your diet will get you the best results. Consuming collagen provides the building blocks for collagen production from the inside. Our After Sun Mist provides collagen on the outside, improving barrier function and plumping and hydrating the epidermis. So feeding your skin from the inside and outside will definitely give you the best results!
Glow Mist is a daily mist suitable any time of day for hydration and plumping. After Sun Mist is more beneficial to skin that has been exposed to the sun and has a higher concentration of ingredients that soothe and cool down skin and help to repair minor sunburns.Both products are designed as an easy, convenient way to topically apply bioactive collagen peptides, to protect existing collagen, improve hydration and barrier function and reduce signs of ageing.
Cosmetics always have a lot of sciencey sounding ingredients in them – but fear not, we have done our homework and chosen only the best and safest ingredients for our After Sun Mist. Have a look at the full ingredient glossary for the breakdown of each ingredient. We have stayed away from all fragrances, parabens, PEGS, SLES and SLS.
