Firming Booster serum has a unique composition with effective ingredients to improve skin structure and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The basis of the serum is a mix of hyaluronic acid sugars for better absorption and distribution in the epidermis.

The active ingredients are: Malic Acid, Arbutin en Niacinamide.

  • Bakuchiol, a phytochemical that can combat skin aging and pigmentation, is considered a gentle alternative to vitamin A (retinol) without the potential irritation.
  • White tea extract, from young buds and leaves of the Camellia Sinensis shrub, rich in antioxidants.
  • Cyclopeptide-5, a hypoallergenic cyclic protein (peptide), stimulates biological skin processes, promotes hydration and stimulates support tissue in the dermis. Together, these ingredients effectively improve the skin.

Discover our Firming Booster Serum, specially formulated to firm and rejuvenate your skin. This powerful serum not only contains hyaluronic acid for optimal hydration, but also three active ingredients that give a real boost to your skincare routine.

Bakuchiol, also known as the alternative to vitamin A, has been used for centuries in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine. This phytochemical is known for its ability to prevent skin aging and pigment spots. In fact, previous studies suggest that bakuchiol could be considered a functional alternative to topical retinoids and vitamin A, without the irritation sometimes associated with vitamin A.

In addition, our serum also contains white tea extract, which used to be exclusively intended for the Chinese imperial court. This extract is obtained from the youngest buds and leaves of the Camellia Sinensis shrub, and contains an abundance of antioxidants. As a result, the extract helps protect the skin against harmful free radicals and premature aging.

Finally, there is the addition of Cyclopeptide-5, a unique hypoallergenic cyclic protein (peptide). This powerful ingredient naturally stimulates the skin’s biological process. It provides better hydration to the skin and promotes stimulation of the supporting tissues in the dermis, making the skin feel tighter and firmer.

What is the difference between Iconic Elements Anti-Aging cream and Serum Firming Booster? Anti-Aging cream has a strong antioxidant effect. During the day, the skin is bombarded by free radicals (oxidants). This is due to ultraviolet radiation, air pollution, smoking, weather influences. These free radicals have adverse effects on our skin, resulting in fine lines, pigment spots and a dull complexion. Anti-aging cream with anti-oxidant effect, reduce the harmful oxidant effect on the skin. Anti-aging cream contains no perfume.

Firming Booster Serum focuses more on the stimulation of the support layers in the skin. This unique combination of a bakuchiol, white tea and a natural peptide is suitable for people with sensitive skin.
