  1. Erica

    I am in awe of this serum and what it does for my skin daily! A little goes a long way and the smell is pleasant. After a few minutes I can feel my skin tightening up and I absolutely love that. It gives me satisfaction knowing that it is working. My skin is firmer, and I have a glow day and night. I also haven’t had a break out since starting to use it. I’m a forever believer!

  2. Margarita Guryeva

    My favorite serum ever. I use it for more than two weeks and I see how my skin texture was improved even the tone of the face became smooth and reduced wrinkles.

  3. Diane Taha

    I love using vitamin c on my skin but not all serums work as effectively as this one! This serum has the added benefits of ferulic acid and Edafence. I’ve been using this in the morning as the first step in my skincare routine. The formula is lightweight and works well under makeup. Since using this serum, my skin texture has been much smoother and even toned. And overall, my skin looks firmer and more radiant. I received this product complimentary of Biopelle; all opinions are my own.

Tensage Growth Factor

Featuring SCA Biorepair Technology

Growth factors are naturally found in the skin and help repair damage from the sun and other environmental elements. With age, the body naturally produces fewer growth factors and damage to the skin goes unrepaired, leading to premature signs of aging.

Derived non-harmfully from the secretion of the Cryptomphalus aspersa snail. SCA Biorepair Technology contains growth factors and antioxidant benefits clinically proven to help improve multiple signs of aging to the skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

Pollution damages the DNA of skin cells, degrades the extracellular matrix (ECM), causes oxidative damage and reduces fibroblast viability,  This leads to wrinkles, skin sagging, dark spots and loss of brightness. 

Edafence is an extract of the only native grass to survive extreme environmental condition in Antarctica.  Edafence is responsibly sourced and helps to mitigate the damaging effects of pollution and other environmental stressors on the skin.  Edafence helps maintain cellular viability and helps prevent DNA damage to the skin. 

Antioxidant serums help neutralize nasty free radicals that can affect your skin. Free radicals are unstable molecules that try to steal electrons from your skin’s barrier. Antioxidants have an electron to spare and use that to neutralize the free radicals. This can lead to more even skin tone and a reduction in fine lines after consistent use.

Skincare regimens are all unique and what works best for your skin may be different than what drives results for others. If trying to combat hyperpigmentation, we recommend using Antioxidant Defense Serum in the AM and our Brighten KNR Serum in the PM for a synergistic approach of defending against the future formation of dark spots as well as helping to reverse the signs of photo damage that has already occurred. Incorporating a Tensage Intensive Serum into a regimen is also an excellent way to jumpstart results.
