Skye Optimal - The Elixir Face Serum

Availability:In stock

Introducing this new and exciting skincare product, handmade in small batches in Waternish, just down the road from us.  It has been developed by Claire who was hard at work for 14 months creating Skye Optimal, The Elixir face serum.

The serum is revitalising, concentrated and weightless, and pairs modern science-led ingredients with Scottish botanical extracts inspired by traditional Scottish medicine. 

Claire created this product in reaction to the confusing landscape of products offering either natural or synthetic skincare, she wondered why we couldn't combine the best from both worlds to create an honest, innovative product with truly beneficial results.

The serum contains sustainably foraged Scottish botanicals including Scot's Luck Heather, Meadowsweet (the serum is unscented but meadowsweet does come through when applied), Broom, Silverweed, Eggwrack Seaweed, Minermang (Kombu kelp), Milk Thistle Oil.  Claire also uses and distils the water used in the serum from the burn on her croft. 

Other key ingredients include:

  • 3-0 Ehtyl Ascorbic Acid: a potent stable form of Vitamin C, noted for its skin brightening effects.
  • AvenaPlex - Oat Kernal Extract: a powerful lipid complex with ceramides, sterols and phospholipids shown to support the health of the skin's barrier. 
  • Hyaluronic Acid: show to aid hydration
  • SYN-COLL - Palmitoyd Tri-peptide-5: a patent synthetic peptide which has been demonstrated to boost collagen production.
