Acne: Sebum is an oily secretion of the sebaceous glands. When excess sebum is generated by the glands our skin pores may become clogged. The sebum then becomes trapped in the pores whereby the ideal breeding ground for acne bacteria is formed. This may lead to the appearance of acne, including whiteheads, blackheads or pimples.

Rosacea is a non-contagious skin condition that generally affects the face. This condition typically causes facial skin to reveal a flushing and blushing appearance whilst blood vessels may become visible and pustules sometimes form.

Histamine sensitive skins: People with histamine sensitive skins may have an overreaction to insect bites or experience persistent itching and slow healing of inflamed skin. Skin may appear flaky and/or red and may have red lumps or welts that feel warm.

What causes these skin conditions?

In most acne cases, it’s the activation of androgens that increases the oils on your skin. The activation of androgens affects 5a-reductase (an enzyme involved in steroid metabolism), and this in turn can cause androgen overload. Androgen overload and imbalances affect the skin and internal mechanisms of the body.

Other causes include bacterial infections and inflammation, insulin resistance, liver imbalances (including liver overload and restricted waste removal from the liver and therefore the body), lymphatic system dysfunction, poor diet choices and poor exercise choices. 

Our Lilac Rebalancing Plant Stem Cell Serum is a powerhouse of natural, active compounds and is the ideal formula for assisting with acne, rosacea and histamine sensitive skin conditions.

Antioxidant rich Lilac stem cell extracts, hydrating coconut water, soothing aloe vera juice and an array of fruit extracts, including the calming blueberry fruit extract and the purifying tomato fruit extract, have been synergistically formulated to create this fast absorbing, rebalancing serum. The Lilac Rebalancing Plant Stem Cell Serum will assist in the provision of superior healing, purification, hydration, antioxidant protection and pigment inhibiting capabilities. 

Why choose this powerhouse serum?

Lilac stem cell extract – the hero ingredient

Calming lilac stem cell extracts have been shown to have the ability to  address the problem of excess sebum production, to decrease inflammation, and to provide hydration and purification in the leadup to acne.  

Verbascoside, found in lilac stem cells, has been found to have significantly accelerated wound healing and anti-inflammatory action displaying the potential to help histamine sensitive skins. Polyphenols from lilac leaf demonstrate the potential to contribute to the treatment and prevention of blood stagnation, which can assist in the control of skin redness.

Vaccinium Myrtillus (Blueberry) Fruit Extract 

Blueberries contain an abundance of anthocyanins, a compound which has antimicrobial, antioxidative and anti-inflammatory properties, thereby intensifying the skin healing benefits of the lilac stem cell extracts. 

Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Water

Coconut water is amazingly hydrating, helping the skin to retain moisture and preventing it from drying out.  It moistens the skin in the most natural way, without the addition of excess oil, and is an anti-inflammatory, detoxifier and an antimicrobial.  

Opuntia Ficus Indica (Prickly Pear) Extract

Prickly pear is a great addition to the formula as it has excellent hydrating properties due to its high content of water binding activities. It has also displayed exceptional soothing and firming abilities.

Tomato Fruit Extract

This fruit extract is rich in Vitamin C, potassium, vitamin K and folate. It is purifying to the skin, helping to balance its pH and regulate sebum.

Here’s our 4 step daily skincare regime for people with sensitive skin

Our daily skincare regime is one extremely important part of skin preservation. Cell Defence has aspired to introduce the following gentle, soothing regime for sensitive skin types to help achieve a healthy, clear complexion whilst also keeping aging skin at bay.  

Step 1

Cleanse skin morning and evening with Cell Defence Indian Moringa Gentle Cleansing Gel to soothingly remove impurities and makeup.

Apply a drop of gel to dampened fingertips and ever so gently smooth over your face. Lightly splash face with cool water and the gel will instantly lather for a deep clean. Rinse with lukewarm or cool water and pat dry with a fresh, soft towel.

Your skin will feel fresh, moisturised and ideally, will be non-greasy. This is because the coconut water and moringa seed oil in this formula are known to decrease the excess oils on your skin.

Indian Moringa Cleansing Gel is so precious for sensitive skin because it:

  • Will spread over face with ease;
  • Will ensure an efficient deep cleanse;
  • Has incredible hydrating qualities that help prevent moisture loss;
  • Helps to naturally moisturise the skin without adding excess oil;
  • has several anti-inflammatory and antibacterial components to help in the treatment of sensitive skin conditions; to decrease the incidence of acne prone skin types; and to assist wound healing and skin regeneration.

Step 2

Tone your skin with Cell Defence Skin Saviour Toner, an electronically activated saline solution containing hypochlorous acid (HOCl).

Lightly spray this saline solution over your face morning and evening to help protect against bacteria or infection. This is the ideal toner for sensitive and inflamed skin conditions as it is natural, non-toxic, non-allergenic and non-sensitising, yet a powerful antimicrobial and antibiofilm agent that is highly effective against microorganisms.

Step 3

Firm and balance your complexion with Cell Defence Lilac Rebalancing Plant Stem Cell Serum

Lightly dab and spread a small amount of this elixir over your face morning and evening. Feel it instantly absorb to provide your skin with protection from the environment and assist in soothing, healing and reducing the signs of aging. This is the perfect choice of serum to assist in gradually revealing a clearer, healthier, firmer and well-balanced complexion.

This stem cell serum has the potential to suppress sebum and assist in controlling skin redness. It is suitably blended with calming and soothing ingredients to create a potent elixir ideal for rebalancing sensitive skin.
