Nature has provided us with many botanical ingredients that can nurture and nourish skin, leaving it soft, smooth and radiant. However, using natural ingredients does not mean forsaking advances in beauty care technology. The EmerginC collection combines the best that nature has to offer with cutting-edge advances in beauty technology to deliver visible improvements in the texture and appearance of your complexion. This highly effective collection contains all you need to cleanse, tone and treat your skin, from facial and body cleansers to moisturisers and serums.
One of the key ingredients in the EmerginC range is vitamin C, which has many beneficial effects on the skin. Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that helps to combat the ageing effects of free radicals. The body produces free radicals as a by-product of metabolism. The number of free radicals in the skin can increase due to environmental factors, such as cigarette smoke and environmental pollution. Free radicals have a spare electron that attaches to skin cells, causing them to become damaged. This weakens the skin, causing it to become fragile and prone to lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C helps to neutralise the effects of free radicals by donating an electron and stabilising the atoms.
Vitamin C can also help to repair damage to the skin and boost collagen production. Collagen is a protein that is essential to keep the skin firm and flexible. Collagen levels naturally diminish as the skin ages. They can also become lower if the skin is exposed to environmental aggressors. Vitamin C can help to trigger the body’s natural collagen production mechanism. By increasing the amount of collagen in the skin, products containing vitamin C help it to become stronger and more resilient.
The EmerginC range draws many of its ingredients from nature, including fruit acids, which are a type of alpha hydroxy acid (AHA). Fruit acids work as an exfoliant on the skin, breaking the bonds that enable older cells to cling to the surface. Removing unwanted cells can help to give your complexion a clearer, fresher appearance. It also gives new cells the opportunity to rise to the surface. Younger skin is smoother and more flexible, making it less prone to lines and wrinkles. Fruit acids also boost the production of elastin and collagen, helping to maintain skin’s elasticity. Products containing fruit acids are recommended for individuals with oily and acne-prone complexions because they clear away excess sebum and unblock the pores.
Because they are free from ingredients that can cause irritation, such as parabens, artificial colours and synthetic fragrances, EmerginC products are less likely to cause an adverse reaction in individuals with sensitive or reactive skin.
Every aspect of the production process has been analysed to ensure that it is sustainable and responsible. Even the packaging for these desirable skin care products is made from paperboard that has been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council and Sustainable Forestry Initiative. All of the printing is carried out using non-toxic, vegetable-based inks. You can be sure that EmerginC takes its corporate stewardship responsibilities seriously to minimise any adverse impact on the environment.
Not forgetting the skincare needs of men, EmerginC has also created EmerginC Men's which combines men's cleansers, anti-ageing treatments and post-shave skincare treatments.
