  • Elixseri serums are simple and pleasurable to use and easy to integrate into your daily routine.
  • Each serum penetrates the deepest layers of the skin as the ingredients are micro-biotic.
  • The benefits build up over time, boosting and reprogramming skin’s own regenerative functions.
  • Each serum works synergistically with all other products and enhances whatever cleansing and protective care you are currently using.

Elixseri serums contain a higher concentration of active ingredients compared to a cream. This potency means that serums can accomplish more than other products.

Serums like ours are also targeted meaning that each formulation has a higher concentration of ingredients chosen to specifically treat your skin concerns. They will add power to your skincare routine, giving skin the extra energy it needs to perform its regenerative and protective functions.

Our serums are water-based and contain micro-biotic ingredients with tiny molecules meaning they can penetrate deeper and accomplish more than creams or cleansers. They also work over time to boost the skin’s own regeneration capabilities – including supporting the skin’s immune system, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, reinforcing the skin’s own natural protective mechanism.

Elixseri serums are easy to use and can be combined with any other skincare product.

Over the longer term, sensitive skin becomes more resilient and less reactive to external and internal stress.

It really depends on your skin and even the time of year. If you have dry skin, you may want to add a cream on top of your Elixseri serum. However oily, normal and combination skin may feel that they do not need a cream on top.

Elixseri serums offer immediate results upon application. Depending on your serum choice, you will notice one or more of the following: skin resurfacing, surface hydration, line smoothing, firming or a radiance boost. However, all our serums are specially created to reprogramme your skin, and for this they need a bit of time (and you need to be patient)!

After one month of consecutive use, you will see remarkable results start to appear. For the treatment of more stubborn issues such as pigmentation or redness, we recommend that you use your Serum System for a period of at least three months.

No, none of our products or ingredients are tested on animals.

‘Clean’ can mean different things to different people and there is no industry definition to use to say that we are clean or cleaner than other brands. But we can say that we are 100% transparent about our ingredients and 98% of our ingredients come from natural sources.

Our serums do not contain parabens or silicones. Furthermore, they do not contain the following common cosmetic ingredients: alcohol, ammonia, aluminium, BHA/ BHT, DEA, ethanol based preservatives such as phenoxyethanol, essential oils, glycols, hydroquinone, mineral oils, PEGs, Phthalates, Sulphates, TEA, UREA’s.

Yes, we use tiny concentrations of synthetic fragrance/ parfum. It is important to understand that synthetic fragrances are not ‘bad’ – in fact they are scientifically proven to decrease adverse skin reactions that are more likely to happen with natural fragrances or essential oils. This is a perfect example of when a natural ingredient such as an essential oil, may trigger more sensitivities or irritations, than a man-made molecule.

Elixseri serums are designed to be a complement to any derm or beautician therapy, helping to control skin inflammation, protect cellular DNA and normalise your skin’s micro-biome. However, and because our serums are so ‘active’, we recommend a rest period of at least two days after any intensive treatment such as a glycolic peel or laser. Start to use your serum on day three and always under SPF.
