Previse Skin Type

Skin Types 1 & 2 share similar challenges including low levels of melanin to absorb UV radiation and dissipate the energy as harmless heat. Our recipes for these skin types balance green tea extract (Camellia Sinensis), algae, and sunflower seed oil to gently remove impurities from the surface of the skin, reduce inflammation or redness, and hydrate the skin for better metabolism. We included an extra helping of fennel seed extract (Foeniculum vulgare) to further help reduce UV erythema – a skin condition characterized by redness or rash.

In this series we introduced the natural essence of Ylang Ylang, which has a mild bouquet derived from the yellow flowers of this tropical tree. Ylang Ylang’s aromatherapeutic benefits come from the essential oils, said to provide feelings of deep, languid calm that melt away anxiety, tension and stress and help fight anxiety and high blood pressure.

As with all Previse products, our recipes are customized with the appropriate level of ingredients to achieve optimum skin health. Hyaluronic acid is added at varying degrees to improve cell cohesion and the barrier function of the skin while maintaining hydration through a “water reservoir” function in the dermis. A highly specialized soy bean extract is added to help restore skin’s elasticity, increase collagen density, and enhance collagen synthesis. We further infuse our formulas with Panthenol (vitamin B5) and Resveratrol, a potent antioxidant to scavenge free radicals and protect the skin’s surface from oxidizing.

Members with Skin Type 3 show moderate levels of naturally occurring melanin and may be able to absorb more UV radiation then members with Skin Type 1 or 2. We complement member’s skin needs with a dose of red algae (Chondrus Crispus), which grows abundantly along the rocky parts of the Atlantic coast of Europe and North America. The remarkable properties of this marine algae deliver moisture to instantly hydrate and cool the skin. The series also includes an extra measure of daisy flower extract (Bellis Perennis). This potent extract is a highly efficient, natural skin lightening agent that evens the overall tone to improve the skin’s appearance.

We balanced our recipes with fennel seed extract (Foeniculum vulgare) to reduce redness, and an added dash of Yakima Peppermint in Purify and Defend as a natural anti-microbial with cooling sensorial properties.

Peppermint, one of the oldest and most highly regarded herbs, is credited as an analgesic, decongestant, and may help increase memory and alertness. Many who have smelled peppermint attest that the fragrance is a great pick-me-up when tired or stressed.

Due to the similarity of Skin Types 4 & 5 we optimized our recipes to help members achieve optimal skin health. Higher levels of naturally occurring melanin and surface oil can sometimes present a challenge for members with Skin Types 4 and 5. Members complain of suffering from a sense or appearance of oiliness, often compounded by topical products that purport to solve skin dryness. We added an additional Saccharide Isomerate, which is unlike the majority of humectants found in many other skin care brands. These other humectants can actually work against the skin, drawing moisture out at relatively low humidity levels. Our Previse Saccharide Isomerate locks in moisture to protect dry skin against classical symptoms such as brittleness, roughness, unevenness, faintness, and itching. We were excited to discover the benefits of honey and rosemary, which are featured in these formulas. The antioxidants in honey are thought to be a nutrient supply for the growth of new tissue, while the compounds from rosemary help fight against mutagenic effects of radiation. Lastly we added wasabi. A favorite in Japanese restaurants, we are utilizing wasabi extract as an anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial to boost to the skin’s defense against excessive sunlight.

We complemented our Skin Type 4 & 5 regimen with a hint of tea tree oil. The essences of rosemary and tea tree combined help infuse the series with aromatherapeutic benefits that include feelings of contentment as well as a demonstrated ability to reduce cortisol levels and stimulate our immune system.

Our Skin Type 6 recipes are truly exceptional and include the highest level of Panthenol or vitamin B5. Panthenol is a deeply penetrating moisturizer that stimulates epithelisation while also having wound healing effects. This vitamin B5 is also part of Coenzyme A, which is important the for structure and function of living tissue. Our Skin Type 6 members receive the greatest concentration of cetearyl olivate/sorbitan olivate derived from olives, and apricot kernel oil (Prunus Armeniaca) to help keep the skin richly hydrated. Apricot kernel oil is easily absorbed by the skin and does not leave the surface feeling oily or greasy. Naturally high in poly-unsaturated fatty acids, Apricot Kernel oil helps to soothe inflammation and is particularly helpful for dehydrated, delicate, mature, and sensitive skin.

The signature essence of Skin Type 6 is Bulgarian lavender. This botanical essence is associated with feelings contentment, with improved mood, and calming or sedative effects. Studies have shown that Bulgarian lavender may reduce cortisol levels. The aromatic essence may help promote a feeling of relaxation and sense of calm. This is a great choice during the morning rush and at the end of the day when it’s time to relax and prepare for sleep.
