Pollution, radiation, chronic stress, lack of sleep, poor nutrition – modern lifestyles expose us to a cocktail of chemicals that can really make our skin suffer. Today skin conditions and allergies are on the rise, and becoming hallmarks of the generations inheriting toxic lifestyles and environments.

Living in conflict with nature’s rhythms causes inflammation in the body, which is linked to ageing. For the vast majority it’s simply not possible – or even desirable – to drop out of modern society and the stresses it induces, but now there’s a different option.

It’s logical that a potent dose from nature’s most extreme medicine cabinet could help to redress the balance and alleviate skin problems caused and exacerbated by increasingly stressful lifestyles that are out of sync with nature.

Stress-tolerant actives

Laura Rudoe, founder of S5 Skincare, has devoted years to the research and discovery of nature’s most effective bioactives, derived from plants that live in some of Earth’s most extreme ecosystems – including the Arctic, high altitudes and deserts.

The actives are bio-adapted to be resilient to stress, and when added to natural skincare products they can be used to treat specific skin conditions.

Laura has built a modular range of skincare with five treatment serums at its heart. Each contains the highest possible concentration of bioactives to treat one single skin issue: redness/sensitivity, blemishes, pigmentation, premature ageing and dryness.

The serums blend bioactives with high-tech green ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, in an organic base of natural oils, waters and butters, helping to prevent further damage and repair the visible effects of modern living on the skin.

The serums can be combined with S5’s skin-type based cleansers and moisturisers to create a bespoke beauty regime to suit your skin’s needs.

This is a pioneering approach to organic beauty at the cutting edge of scientific development.
