Stratum C, the skin care company who specialise in products formulated specifically for menopausal and peri-menopausal skin, have launched two new products: Vitality Eye Serum and Menopause Skin Calming Toner.
STRATUM C Vitality Eye Serum £54.00
As we age, skin around the eyes becomes thinner, sensitive and more vulnerable to signs of ageing. When combined with the visible signs of sleep deprivation due to those annoying symptoms of menopause, our eyes can begin to develop dark circles and puffiness.
Using only naturally derived peptides extracted from rice, soya and yeast proteins, Stratum C Vitality Eye Serum not only boosts collagen levels but stimulates blood flow around the eye to visibly reduce dark circles and puffy areas. Combined with Stratum C’s luxuriant anti-ageing ingredients it will restore your eye’s youthful and healthy glow, replenish key moisture levels and reduce existing fine lines and wrinkles.
Containing Irish Moss Seaweed Extract and Hyaluronic Acid, which are found in our renowned Repair Serum, this eye gel is packed full of powerful antioxidants, which are sealed into a sophisticated air tight syringe that ingeniously dispenses exactly the amount needed for a single application for both eyes. Each syringe contains over 100 applications.
Stratum C menopause skin care products are unique because we have a special combination of active ingredients at concentrations much higher than high street brands and proven in published scientific and clinical studies.
STRATUM C Menopause Skin Calming Toner £19.00
Stratum C Menopause Skin Calming Toner uses a unique formula containing Coenzyme Q10, Hyaluron and natural botanical extracts to restore moisture, tighten skin, maintain a healthy pH balance whilst offering protection from free radicals that contribute to ageing and damage to skin cells.
Fresh, calming and natural botanical ingredients including Aloe Vera, Papaya, Cucumber, Sage and Orange Flower contain micro particles that enhance the delivery of CoQ10 into the dermis, invigorating skin cells, whilst protecting your complexion from oxidising agents that cause dry skin, ageing and dull complexion.
HOW TO USE
Use morning and evening after cleansing with Stratum C Menopause Skin Gentle Cleanser and follow with Stratum C Menopause Protect Cream for the ultimate menopause beauty regimen.
REVIEW: SKIN CALMING TONER
I’ve just started to use the silky eye serum this week, but I have been using the toner for over a month now. I’m extremely cautious when it comes to toners as I have sensitive skin and rosacea. I find that they’re either too harsh and leave my skin stingy and sore, or so watery, that they don’t do anything at all.
This pale yellow toner is presented in a flip top bottle to control the amount dispensed. The scent is sublime, I can definitely detect Aloe Vera, orange flower and a hint of sage. This would be a gorgeous, relaxing scent for a diffuser or candle, if Stratum C are considering expanding their product range further!
I tested out the tiniest drops on my temples for a couple of weeks without any problem. I now use the toner on my face and happily, it soothes without irritation. I use the toner in the morning to prep skin for moisturiser and in the evening after my cleansing routine, to remove every last trace of cleanser and to ready my skin for overnight treatments.
It doesn’t leave skin feeling sticky afterwards or that ‘squeaky clean’ feeling you sometimes get from toners. If a toner ever does that, then stop using it immediately, because it’s a sure sign that the toner’s stripping your skin of its natural oils and drying it out.
I feel confident using this gentle formulation, I’ve missed using a toner as an important part of my skin care regimen for fear of irritating my delicate skin, but this is working well for me.
Menopausal skin can be unpredictable, this is a toner for pre and post cleansing and also for those angry ‘flare up’ days.
“The active ingredients in Stratum C have been shown, in studies that I carried out, to increase the production of collagen by skin cells by up to 70%. This is especially important for women going through menopause, which has been shown to suppress the body’s natural collagen production leading to premature ageing of the skin.” Prof Ian W Hamley
