I am delighted to introduce you to the new S5 skincare range, which is launching today.
I originally created S5 6 years ago as a highly effective natural and organic range designed to solve skin problems. I have also been on a personal journey of skin and wellness improvement (which is ongoing) and over the past 6 years I have focused my energies on understanding as much as possible about nutrition and natural wellness. I have been fascinated by the world of ancestral health which is the understanding of how the human body evolved and how we might adapt our lifestyle to be as similar as possible to the environment the human body is adapted to. This began as a personal research project but I soon realised that this was very important for skin health as well as total wellness and I have now integrated this back into the S5 range.
S5 has been updated in several ways:
In the past few years we have started manufacturing S5 in our own studio in Hertfordshire where we make both our S5 and our sister range Evolve Beauty. Our beautiful miron glass packaging is therefore much more suitable for small batch hand made manufacture with hand labelled cartons and labels. Miron glass is a wonderful material which provides complete UV protection to the delicate bioactives and natural oils within our formulas, which keeps them fresher for longer.
One of my main focuses with S5 has always been to find the most effective bioactives available to treat skin problems naturally. Our formulas have been updated to include several new actives I have found in my research and also to include several actives which help the body to deal with the effects of modern living on the skin. This includes bioactives that protect against pollution, chronic stress and help to minimise the effects of immune system dysregulation on the skin.
All of our creams now use an amazing emulsification system which is itself hugely beneficial to the skin, helping to restore the skin barrier and improve hydration. It is based on candellila and jojoba esters and is 100% natural. This has slightly changed the texture of our creams, I very much think for the better.
I hope you enjoy our new range and the new look S5! As always we are delighted to receive feedback about the range and I hope you have a chance to try it soon.
