The serum with copper peptides is to be put first preferably. You can then put an essence after waiting a few minutes.
Do peptides accelerate hair growth on the face?
No studies show that they promote hair growth because it does not alter the hair follicle.
What is the difference between the multi-active serum which contains 8% peptides and the youth serum with 2% copper peptides?
The multi-active serum can of course be sufficient on its own to target the signs of aging, but the copper peptide remains one of the most scientifically studied peptides for their anti-aging properties. It has properties that other peptides do not have such as: stimulation of skin healing, reduction of inflammation and antioxidant. In addition, our copper peptide serum also contains new peptides with cosmetic drone technology (the active is encapsulated to increase penetration and bioavailability). The youth serum is therefore even more effective on the signs of aging.
When to start an anti-aging treatment?
Between the ages of 25 and 35 because that's when you start to have a drop in collagen production. Skin aging is often accelerated by external factors: sun, pollution, lifestyle (sleep, stress, cigarettes, nutrition).
Can pure vitamin C be mixed with products containing copper peptide?
No, you should not mix pure vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) at the same time as a serum or product that contains a copper peptide (cooper peptide) because this cancels the effects of both serums. But you can use pure vitamin C in the morning and in the evening put a serum that contains a copper peptide. However, it is possible to mix pure vitamin C with the NOOANCE multi-active serum.
Can the serums be mixed?
No, it's best not to. The formulations are designed to ensure good penetration of the active ingredients. When you mix products you can disturb this so it is better to apply them one after the other rather than mixing them.
Does the eye contour act on puffiness that is swollen (lack of firmness, circulatory problem and fat deposits)?
No, the eye contour can only act on puffiness of the edema type which naturally diminishes over the day. For fatty pockets, cosmetics have no effect and can act only in prevention.
Can the Elixir with 10 precious oils be used on skin with imperfections? Is it comedogenic?
Yes, the elixir is suitable for all skin types, even acne-prone skin. The main oils (jojoba and nigella) can help acne-prone skin. On the other hand, comedogenicity is specific to everyone, it is impossible to guarantee that the product will not be comedogenic on your skin in particular.
Can I use a cream with retinol in the morning?
No, photosensitizing species, retinol increases skin sensitivity during exposure to UV radiation from the sun. For this reason, it is preferable to apply a treatment containing this active ingredient in the evening, before going to bed.
Are your products VEGAN?
Yes, except our retinol creams which contain a honey derivative in the formula.
Can we mix retinol and copper peptides?
Yes, you can absolutely use retinol skincare with our copper peptide serum.
I already use retinol at night and am looking for a cream rich in niacinamide, what do you recommend?
We can recommend our serums that contain niacinamide to include in your morning routine: the multi-active serum or the bubble serum.
I suffer from rosacea, which serum should I use?
The copper peptide serum is extremely well tolerated by skin suffering from rosacea and generally from any inflammatory concern. Ursus skincare talks about it very well in the live on our website ( media space section ).
I have sensitive and reactive skin, can I use your Multi Active Serum?
Yes absolutely. Our serum contains a multitude of soothing active ingredients as well as prebiotics to strengthen your skin barrier, a guarantee of prolonged youth. More generally: our treatments are formulated to respect all skin types, even the most sensitive. However, for the most sensitive and reactive skin, we recommend avoiding creams with retinol or integrating them little by little (and in small doses) into your routine to see if your skin tolerates it or not.
Why are there “grains” in sun care?
Our sun care has very light grains which melt quickly on contact with the skin. These grains are due to a high concentration of UVA filters and the mattifying powder incorporated to avoid the “shiny” effect of sunscreen.
What does “SPF” mean on packs?
SPF stands for “Sun Protector Factor”. This is the index which represents the level of protection of the product. The higher it is, the greater the photoprotection action. The SPF index measures the power of blocking UVB rays, the rays mainly responsible for sunburn.
What are the differences between UVA and UVB?
These are two types of rays which differ by their wavelength: UVB = 280 to 315 and UVA = 315 to 400. This difference causes distinct effects on the skin. UVB rays are responsible for sunburns, burns and skin cancers. They act on the surface of the skin. UVA is responsible for the destruction of collagen and elastin. They therefore cause hyperpigmentation and premature aging of the skin. Their wavelength being longer, UVA penetrates deeper than UVB until reaching the deepest layers of the skin! Finally, UVA represents 95% of the rays reaching the earth's surface (compared to 5% for UVB).
For spots, is it better to use Radiance Cream or Clarifying Treatment?
Both products act on stains and can be combined for optimal action. However, we recommend the Clarifying Treatment for post-acne red spots and the Radiance Cream for dark spots, as their respective ingredients are better suited to these different issues.
Can I use the Radiance Cream in the morning?
Yes you can. Radiance Cream contains encapsulated retinol at a very low concentration (0.1%). Encapsulated retinol is designed to be more stable and less susceptible to degradation from light and oxygen. This form also reduces the skin's sensitivity to the sun. By using it with sun protection, you can apply it in the morning.
I have rosacea, can I use the Clarifying Treatment?
Azelaic acid is known for its effectiveness against rosacea, thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce redness and the appearance of dilated vessels. Niacinamide is also beneficial for soothing the skin and reducing inflammation. However, caution is advised with any new skin care product, especially if you have rosacea. It is essential to consult your Doctor or dermatologist before using the Clarifying Treatment to ensure that it is appropriate in your situation.
