Superactive Day Cream

£ 50.00 

A luxurious natural face moisturiser formulated for combination skin but gentle enough for sensitive skin and hydrating enough for dry and menopausal skin.

Superactive Day Cream has an indulgent whipped cream texture, yet it is lightweight and quickly absorbs into your skin leaving a matt finish with no greasy residue. Sits well under make-up too!

Delicately scented with Neroli and Sweet Orange essential oils. This is a REFILLABLE skincare product, packaged in a glass airless pump bottle.

How does it work?

It's packed with omega rich plant oils and natural moisturisers that will give you all-day hydration without the shine.

Helps to soothe and calm redness and inflammation associated with skin irritation and hormonal breakouts. Leaves the skin feeling smooth and soft, while looking plump and healthy.

Strengthens the all important skin barrier, helping to reduce sensitivity and offering blue light protection. Over time and with regular use, it may help diminish the visibility of hyperpigmentation.

Key active ingredients

Proven to absorb blue light, it addresses modern concerns about screen time exposure.

Patch testing is advised the first time you use a new product, particularly if you have sensitive skin or are prone to allergies. Test a small area of skin (the inside of your elbow or inner arm for example) and observe for 24hrs to be sure there is no reaction before applying generally.


Apply 1 - 3 pumps to face and neck in the morning after cleansing. If you cleanse thoroughly at night then only a splash of warm water is required for morning cleansing.

If your skin is on the oilier side of combination you may only need to use 1 pump of cream. If your skin is on the drier side of combination you will likely need 2 pumps. Play around until you see what your skin requires.

If you use SPF apply the SPF after you apply our moisturiser.

For an extra boost in winter or when your skin is feeling drier than normal add a drop or two of our face oil - simply mix the oil in with the cream in the palm of your hand before applying.

How long will it last? Using two pumps a day a bottle should last on average around three - four months.

Storage and packaging

The product is packaged in high quality blue glass to protect the oils from UV light deterioration. Store away from heat and sunlight to further extend shelf life.

Airless pump technology

Airless pump bottles use a non-pressurised vacuum for dispensing product. The product does not get exposed to air or to bacterial contamination (no fingers will touch the product) which protects the integrity of the delicate oils and extracts and increases the overall shelf life. The vacuum dispensing effect draws the product out, create less product wastage.

Refillable packaging

Superactive Day Cream is refillable! Refills are available to purchase once you finish your first product. Simply unscrew the glass outer packaging and remove the empty inner (PP plastic - check with your local council for recycling options) from the pump dispenser and screw on the refill.
