Products & Application

Slow Ageing Essentials has been formulated for every age, type and gender of skin including adolescent, menopausal and sensitive skin types – it’s suitable for everyone!

On the contrary, oily and combination complexions love essential oils for balancing and regulating sebum protection. Essential Facial Essence contains ylang ylang for this reason. A natural antioxidant, it helps to normalise sebum production and regulate natural moisture levels. The combination and essential oils and pure plant oils in Facial Essence also improve the absorption and effectiveness of your moisturiser. 

Absolutely! All our formulations have been created to be suitable for all skin types, ages and genders. For example, our Essential Facial Essence makes the perfect pre-shave oil by softening the beard and easing razor glide; it’s also an ideal post-shave oil to soothe and calm irritations. Essential Face Wash makes a superb shaving cream, giving a smooth, close shave – our Founder David Lieber swears by it! Finish by applying Essential Face Moisturiser to hydrate and protect. 

Essential Facial Essence is a powerhouse of antioxidant essential oils and pure hazelnut seed oil that boosts the radiance, elasticity and resilience of every complexion. It also boosts the effectiveness of subsequent products. Simply massage 3 drops into cleansed skin and massage in using our Skin’ergy application technique before applying Essential Face Moisturiser.

The range has been developed to work in unison for best results and we recommend using the products for a minimum of 30 days – that’s one skin renewal cycle – to really see the benefits. To achieve maximum results, apply your products using our Skin’ergy self-massage application technique.

Created by Slow, Skin’ergy is a unique self-massage application technique that takes just seconds to maximise product absorption – and results. Easy to follow, it stimulates natural acupressure points along the meridians to increase skin oxygenation, detoxify, exercise facial muscles and relax your mind too.

We believe in a ‘less is more’ approach. In fact, dermatologists agree that bombarding skin with too many different products can cause sensitivity and irritations. We have therefore created what we feel is the essential skincare edit to cleanse, boost, protect, restore, nourish and balance for healthy, naturally radiant skin - all over. Each product has been formulated to work in complete synergy with the others, making additional products obsolete.

They are also multi-taskers and can be combined in many different ways to create new products and treatments. However, we may introduce the occasional new product if we feel it’s of significant benefit to slowing the effects of ageing on the skin or enhances the effectiveness of other products in the range.

We do… only it’s called Essential Face Balm and works slightly differently! This restorative blend of deeply nourishing botanical butters and anti-inflammatory, antioxidant essential oils regenerates and renews skin overnight leaving it infinitely softer, smoother and glowing.

This spa-in-a-jar is super potent, so use 2-3 times a week for an intensive boost. In between, apply Facial Essence and then Face Moisturiser before bed to maintain skin’s moisture levels. Face Balm can be used on any complexion but is particularly ideal for very dry, stressed or winter skin.

We use recyclable glass, no single use plastic and no outer packaging. Instead, we send our products tissue wrapped together with a 100% cotton, reusable bag in a recycled cardboard box containing protective compostable box filler chips. Our bottle closures are currently produced from a variety of materials but with recent technological advances, we hope to switch to a more sustainable solution in the near future.

We do manufacture larger sizes but theseare generally reservedfor professional use only. If you would like to become a stockist of our product please visit our Spas & Salons stockist page.
