The benefits

THE PILL changes the appearance of your skin in 3 minutes, and the health of your skin in 6 weeks.

BRIGHTEN + EXFOLIATE

A complex of plant-derived AHA’s extracted from passion fruit, bilberry and pineapple deliver Lactic, Glycolic, Citric, Malic and Tartaric Acids to brighten and gently resurface skin.

PLUMP +
HYDRATE

Hyaluronic Acid, Glycerin and Sodium PCA boost the skin’s NMF (natural moisturizing factor) helping it retain moisture long-term, plus plumping and smoothing the skin’s texture instantly.

TIGHTEN + REDUCE INFLAMMATION

Caffeine helps to reduce surface inflammation and tighten skin, while plant-based Isoamyl Laurate creates a velvet-smooth ‘second skin’ texture.

Brighten + Exfoliate

AHAs are alpha hydroxy acids - a class of chemical compounds that can be either naturally occurring or synthetic. Many are derived from organic sugars, with glycolic acid (from sugar cane) and lactic acid (from milk) being the most easily recognized and also best researched. There are six different AHAs, Glycolic acid, Lactic acid, Mandelic acid, Malic acid, Tartaric acid and Citric acid, each works in a slightly different way on the skin, delivering different benefits. 

AHAs offer chemical exfoliation as an alternative to manual exfoliation, working primarily by dissolving the bonds between skin cells to allow the removal of dead cells and a subsequently smoother skin surface.

THE PILL uses a blend of Lactic, Glycolic, Citric, Malic and Tartaric Acids to brighten, gently exfoliate and resurface the skin. These are extracted from pineapple, bilberry, sugarcane, citrus and passion fruit. The complex of AHAs used inTHE PILL is shown to increase cellular renewal by up to 24% when compared to an untreated biological control.

Plump + Hydrate

THE PILL contains a blend of humectants–a category of skin care ingredients that are hygroscopic–meaning they draw moisture from their surroundings. These are Glycerin, Hyaluronic Acid, Galactoarabinan (GA / Larch Extract) and Sodium PCA, these four humectants work in combination to hydrate the skin and help it repair long term by protecting the skin’s lipid barrier. 

Galactoarabinan (GA) has been shown to reduce transepidermal water loss (TEWL) as well as  increasing skin cell turnover. TEWL is the measurement of the water loss from a body that passes through the skin epidermis through diffusion, which then evaporates. Reduction of TEWL (i.e. lower TEWL readings) indicates that the skin barrier is more effective in retaining moisture in the skin, allowing it to feel more moisturised. One study conducted across 21 subjects which measured TEWL after one application of a product containing 2% GA as against a placebo showed a statistically significant reduction in TEWL levels after only 2 and 4 hours, indicating that GA successfully helped to maintain skin barrier function.

In addition to being a humectant, Hyaluronic Acid is also a glycosaminoglycan, a naturally-occurring substance that’s part of skin’s youth-supporting matrix. Studies have shown that Hyaluronic Acid can improve the appearance of fine lines and improve skin hydration within 15 minutes of application, and after 6-8 can significantly improve skin hydration and elasticity.

Tighten + Reduce Inflammation

Inflammation is the root cause of nearly all skin issues - whether through topical issues like over-exfoliation, external aggressor and breakdown of the lipid barrier or internal inflammation caused by diet, lifestyle or stress. It is possible to address and help reduce surface level inflammation in the skin through topical products, and THE PILL specifically targets this inflammation through using a complex of plant actives and calming compounds. 

Ingredients including CBD, Caffeine, Grape Seed Extract and Glycyrrhizinate Dipotassium (Licorice Root Extract) all work to reduce inflammation in the skin and help to soothe, additional hydrating extracts support the integrity of the skin’s lipid barrier.

Yes.

We would recommend using THE PILL morning or evening. For best results, we recommend using it in the morning to see instant results.

Yes, to address any skin issues long term we would recommend addressing topical and internal issues. THE PILL can be used alongside SKIN FILTER and SKIN HYDRATOR daily. While it can be used in conjunction with TOPICAL-C, we’d recommend starting slowly and working up to avoid any skin irritation.

We would recommend checking with your doctor if you’re concerned about using any new products during your pregnancy, or if you’re breastfeeding. AHAs (alpha-hydroxy acids) are considered safe for use during pregnancy, whereas BHAs (i.e. salicylic acid) are not.
