Sensitive Trial Kit

Lipids + Serum

R300.00

A perfect starter kit to try the Sapienic Sensitive Range.

The Sensitive Trial Kit contains the following:

Step 1 – Lipids (5 ml) 

A light facial oil designed to match the lipid structure of sebum. It contains fatty acids, triglycerides, wax esters and hydrocarbons in the correct percentages to feed your skin’s microbiome and deliver deep moisturization.

 

Step 2 – Serum (7 ml)

Boost the moisture content of your skin with a serum that drives in facial oils and adds prebiotics to feed your microbiome. Its water-soluble actives include Hyaluronic acid, probiotic lysates and prebiotics.

 

The Lipids + Serum form part of a two-step moisturization routine – a Lipid phase (step 1) with oil-soluble actives and a Serum phase (step 2) with water-soluble actives. This allows you to tailor the products to your needs as you make your moisturizer in the palm of your hand.

 

This kit is perfect to try the range before investing in full size products. Optimal results cannot be guaranteed with just the use these as a minimum usage of 4 weeks are required for proven results.

Clinically Proven:

Classified as “harmless to sensitive skin even after tape-stripping”.

How it works

Lipids:

To mimic sebum we have blended Ximenia, Squalane and Jojoba oils. Ximenia oil provides triglycerides and ultra-long-chain fatty acids as well as other eclectic fatty acids. Squalane acts as a non-nutritive hydrocarbon to replace the squalene naturally found in human sebum. Jojoba provides the wax esters.

Serum:

Hyaluronic Acid plumps skin and improves hydration.
1 million inactivated Lactobacillus bacteria per ml communicate with skin cells to stabilize the skin’s barrier.

Prebiotics help to selectively feed beneficial bacteria to exclude pathogens.

How to use it

Add 2 to 3 pumps of Serum to the palm of your hand and then add 2 to 4 drops for oily skin and 4 to 10 drops for dry skin of Lipids to the serum while in the palm of your hand and mix. Once a creamy texture forms, apply to your skin.

Tailor the amount of oil to suit your skin condition.

Future forward packaging

The outer cartons are fully compostable, made from recycled card with an organic cotton tag.

The primary packaging is glass. We chose glass because it is more likely to be recycled and has no environmental impact if isn’t. The pump is polypropylene with aluminum trim.

The embodied carbon of the bundle product, delivered to your door, is 430g and we have purchased carbon credits to offset this. There is 19.4g of plastic in the packaging and we have recovered an equivalent amount of plastic from the ocean to ensure plastic neutrality.

What do we mean by carbon neutral?

We account for the carbon that is emitted in the manufacture of our raw materials and packaging (embodied carbon). This is partly why we use glass wherever we can. We also audit the carbon that we produce in the manufacture and transport of the product to its final destination. We make every effort to reduce these emissions. We purchase ethical carbon offsets for the emissions that we cannot avoid. As we grow our sphere of influence, we will be able to put more pressure on our suppliers to reduce their carbon footprints.

Why certified organic?

The COSMOS organic standards for personal care products audit both the raw materials and packaging used in the final product. We see these standards as a useful starting point, not as an end goal. Organic certification is the beginning of our assurance to you that the product that you’ve chosen is free of contaminants and synthetic chemicals … that it is healthier for your skin and better for the environment. There are many aspects of the standards that we feel should be even more stringent, but they still provide an audited baseline reassurance for our clients.

Vegan & Cruelty Free

We will not test our products on animals. We will not purchase raw materials from suppliers that test on animals or that contract with other entities that do. Animal testing is still required for products that are sold in China, so our products will not be available in that country. We will not use animal products of any kind in our range… not even beeswax.

Plastic Neutral

We use glass packaging where we can. It has high recycle rates and isn’t toxic in the environment.
We have not been able to find an alternative for plastic for our closures. To offset our plastic footprint, we have purchased offsets to prevent plastic from entering the ocean. This means the safe collection and recovery of ocean-bound plastic waste. The contribution supports clean environments and creates sustainable jobs.
We will extend and expand this project as we grow.
