Norwegian ‘age management’ brand launches exclusively in Harvey Nichols
Norwegian skin care brand Skin Science is to enter the UK market next month through an exclusive partnership with premium department store Harvey Nichols.
The brand which launched in Norway in 2006, describes itself as an age management brand, rather than an anti-ageing company and is targeted at consumers aged 25 and up, educating about provention and protection in addition to fighting the signs of ageing.
The range contains the key ingredient Spermine, a natural antioxidant found in the skin that is claimed to be 30 times stronger than vitamin E and proven to delay skin ageing by 20%.
Taking inspiration from Norway’s marine biotechnology industry, the six-sku line also features several patented ingredients. Omegatri is an omega-3 oil derived from Atlantic salmon that has been nano-encapsultated, creating an odourless and stabile compound that can be delivered deeper into the skin to stimulate collagen production and tissue repair.
Zonase X, meanwhile contains the gentle exfoliant zonase, which is produced by salmon embryos as they hatch. When applied to human skin, the brand says the exfoliation action is more potent than fruit enzymes and promotes new cell growth, helping to leave skin luminous and rejuvenated.
Collagen boosting LEX, derived from antioxidant rich salmon roe, helps boost collagen production by up to 600% in eight days, resulting in firmer, more toned skin, while Quicklift, a non-sticky compound made from sugar polysaccharides, provides a temporary lifting effect to the skin.
The flagship product in the range is Bio Active Instant Replenishment Complex, a set of treatment ampoules, which are said to deliver a concentrated dose of Spermine to skin, helping to improve skin elasticity.
Other products include Bio Active Stimulating Serum; Bio Active 24hr Protective Complex Cream, a day cream for all skin types; Bio Active Renewal Complex Cream, for more mature skins; Bio Active Eye Contour Complex, and Bio Active Quicklift Mask.
