  • Key Benefits
    • Boosts Hydrations

      This daily moisturiser works with the skin's natural mechanisms to balance the complexion and boost hydration, leaving a mattifying effect that looks flawless underneath make-up.

    • Lightweight and Soft

      Lightweight and silky soft, it blends easily across the skin, sinking in effortlessly to provide a matte and visibly nourished complexion. Ideal for blemish-prone complexions or those with enlarged pores.

    • Scents from Essential Oils

      Its delicate citrusy scent is derived from natural essential oils that have been carefully selected to refresh and uplift.

    • Glycolic Acid Activator

      The Glycolic Acid Activator instantly dissolves into the skin as a perfect base for Balance Moisturiser to get to work.

  • How It Works

    Blemishes can be caused by changes in the skin’s microbiome, the bacteria that lives on the skin’s surface. Balance Moisturiser helps to rebalance the microbiome. 

    1. Prebiotics and postbiotics feed the good bacteria living on the surface of the skin to encourage a healthy flora, helping to balance and restore a long-lasting clear complexion.

    2. Cinnamon extract works in synergy with the pre and postbiotics to reduce levels of blemish-causing bacteria, such as P. acnes. 

    3. Meanwhile, beta-Glucan enhances the skin's ability to repair itself for immediate comfort and niacinamide soothes red, inflamed blemishes.

    4. Glycolic Acid Activator is used to supercharge the power of Balance Moisturiser.

  • How To Use
    1. After cleansing in the morning and evening, apply Balance Moisturiser evenly across the face, neck and décolletage.

    2. Optional: For boosted performance and exfoliation, use Glycolic Acid Activator 2-3 times a week. After cleansing in the evening, apply 4-6 drops to the face, neck and décolletage. Once dry, apply Balance Moisturiser. Apply products separately, do not mix Glycolic Acid Activator and Balance Moisturiser directly.

    3. Patch testing prior to use is advised. Refer to for an in-depth guide to patch testing.

  • The Science Behind


    The skin’s health is heavily dependent on its microbiome, the billions of invisible microorganisms which live on its surface. Changes in pH, hydration and environment can all affect the microbiome balance. Uneven natural flora can contribute to many skin conditions, such as dry, flaky skin and the formation of blemishes. Pro and prebiotics are used in Balance Moisturiser to restore the natural balance of the microbiome. Postbiotics are live bacteria, which intermix with the natural microbiome and alter its composition. They can change the pH of skin to favour the growth of good bacteria, and produce antimicrobials to help protect the skin. Prebiotics are based on carbohydrates and act as food for the growth of postbiotics at the expense of the skin’s bad bacteria. Pro and prebiotics work synergistically to help the skin regain its natural balance.
