The offer of Organic Series is expanded by many possibilities! We present you with products divided into main categories, according to the stages of daily care – starting with those crucial for a given skin type.

+ skincare
cream | serum | booster | mask

The cream with lactobionic acid used in the evening care gives excellent and visible results without causing irritation. Thanks to the active substance contained in the formula, the cream provides a feeling of intense hydration and helps to fight skin imperfections. In the morning care, we recommend the forte moisturizing cream, which strengthens the protective barrier of the skin, restores bright and radiant skin, reducing signs of fatigue and aging. Crodamol Isis and hyaluronic acid prevent transepidermal water loss by binding and retaining it in deeper skin layers.

Mixed skin is characterized by an oily ‘T’ zone and a dry ‘U’ zone. Therefore, use two types of serum in daily evening care. Apply the serum to the T-zone to minimize excessive sebaceous secretion and dilated pores, and apply a strong moisturizing serum to the U-zone to prevent excessive water loss from the skin, moisturize it and regenerate it. The serum, like the cream, is responsible for providing the skin with valuable ingredients, but the former has a higher concentration of active substances and is richer in various compounds that allow it to work in many ways. However, it should be remembered that the serum can never replace a cream, so it is worthwhile to use it in pairs in the evening care, because then the skin has the greatest capacity for self-regeneration. You can enhance the regenerative, antibacterial effect and absorption of the serum by spraying the skin with a Micronized Silver Booster before or after application.

Aloe Vera Algae Mask is best used once a week on cleansed and exfoliated face skin. In this way blood circulation will be improved and keratinized epidermis will be removed, which translates into increased effectiveness of the mask’s regenerative action. This organic mask has natural aloe vera extracts which will strongly soothe, calm and moisturize sensitive, dry and tired skin. It will speed up the healing process, prevent future inflammation and allergic skin conditions.

+ cleansing
gels | liquids

Organic Series cleansing products have been composed to suit every skin type. Just remember to cleanse your skin twice a day – in the evening with makeup removal, and in the morning in a softer form using e.g. facial cleansing gel. Depending on whether you prefer one or two-stage cleansing, choose the right products.

+ peeling
peeling

Mixed skin, like any other, needs peeling. Facial scrub has a unique plant formula that cleanses the skin and helps to maintain its natural moisture. Thanks to the content of bamboo powder and strawberry, the facial scrub exfoliates keratinized epidermis without irritating the skin. The skin will be properly moisturized, smoothed and nourished, while the problem of dilated pores, excessive shine, and skin lesions will be minimized. By exfoliating the keratinized epidermis twice a week, the skin is more likely to absorb the active ingredients contained in skincare products. Thanks to this, their effectiveness is significantly increased.

+ tonization
tonic

The use of the tonic is important for all skin types in order to restore the neutral pH of the skin, strengthen and improve the work of the hydrolipidic mantle, which is responsible for protecting the skin against adverse external factors or against excessive dryness. Using the tonic in the morning and in the evening additionally improves the penetration of active substances used in the subsequent stages of care. For mixed skin we recommend Degreasing Tonic. The unique formula of the tonic will minimize excessive secretion of sebum and prevent the formation of new inflammations and blackheads. It will reduce irritation when cleansing the skin of impurities, regenerating and smoothing its surface, and creating a protective layer.

Supplementary therapies:

+ combined therapy

To maximize the effect of the aloe vera algae mask, add 3 dosage serums for oily skin. In this way, in addition to moisturizing and soothing effects, you will gain a stronger antibacterial and mattifying effect.

+ acid therapy

During the autumn-winter period, perform 4-6 treatments every 10-14 days using mandelic acid. Mandelic acid has a high molecular weight, making it mild and safe to use. It brings spectacular and visible results. After just one application, the skin will be more moisturized, brightened up, and will gain perfect smoothing. Strong antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of this acid will improve the condition of oily skin. Remember to apply a neutralizer after each application of the acid. The use of a neutralizer after acid application is essential for the skin to regain its natural pH.
