What it targets: Smog-block is a weightless crème that penetrates deep into the layers of the skin, boosting collagen production, reducing the appearance of fine lines/ wrinkles and making skin look fresh and plump.

How it works:

  • Instant hydration- Hyaluronic acid delivers a boost of moisture that makes your skin smooth and plump.
  • Skin looks less lined - Rosehip extract contains high amounts of vitamin A that helps rejuvenate the skin barrier and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Rosehip oil is considered the best natural alternative to the powerful anti- ageing ingredient, Retinol. (Retinol is a synthetic version of vitamin A that can increase skin sensitivity and potentially cause irritation)
  • Promotes collagen production and makes skin firmer- The vitamin A in Rosehip extract helps boost collagen production, which in turn increases elasticity and makes your skin firmer.
  • Visibly radiant skin- Yuzu contains 3 times more vitamin C than oranges and prevents the appearance of hyperpigmentation by brightening and evening out your skin tone.
  • Zinc Oxide protects the skin from ageing caused by sun damage and helps fight acne with its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. 
  • It’s created with only the safest natural, organic, and food-safe certified ingredients.
  • It’s suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
  • Smog-Block is clinically certified to be hypoallergenic and unlikely to cause any irritation/ allergies/ reactions.
  • The perfectly balanced ingredients ensure Smog-Block is non-comedogenic and won’t block pores.

Why it’s gentle:

PETA® Cruelty Free and Vegan, Hypoallergenic Clinically Proven, Non-Comedogenic, Paraben-Free, Suitable for all skin types, Dermatologically Tested, Biocert® Organic, Biocert® Halal, Made-Safe® Non-Toxic Certified, Australia Allergy Certified®, Ethanol Free.


Hypoallergenic Clinical Study

Smog-Block is not likely to cause allergic reactions on the skin. In a clinical trial none of the 231 participants showed any allergic reactions at any point of the patch application. The trial was conducted through 10 separate visits to the lab over a period of 45 days.

Light and hydrating!

I started using Smog block as part of my morning moisturizer under my sunscreen and it kept my skin hydrated without making it greasy! I also use it as a primer and I love it as my make up doesn't budge and it keeps my skin hydrated and protected. It's my constant companion!

Fabulous

It spreads easily and dries down to a matte like texture almost instantly. I have really dry skin, so I thought the matte like texture would be drying. But it’s ridiculously hydrating and it seems to last all day long. I don’t know what sorcery makes this weird dry almost stiff texture settle so well and make your skin super smooth and soft. It’s a great base for make up as well, things doesn’t slide around. 100% recommend for all skin types. I don’t know how to test the smog block factors but I suppose I’ll know over time.

All ingredients

Superhero Ingredients:

Rosehip oil
Organic certified & cold pressed natural ingredient that comes from a specific variety of rose called rosa moschata. Its cultivation dates back to the 1500s. This oil is packed with vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, and K, and has the ultimate solution for regenerating the skin that’s damaged by the free-radicals present in pollution. It helps reduce scarring, is deeply moisturising without upsetting the skins natural balance and also feels wonderful on the skin.

Zinc oxide

Eco certified natural certified naturally occurring mineral. It can heal skin and also protect it from environmental toxins. It is used in nappy rash creams globally and has many benefits to promote healthy balanced skin. It’s often referred to as the only safe sun protection available in a tube. But what makes zinc oxide truly safe is that it’s a physical barrier sun protectant, which means it sits on top of your skin and forms a shield between you and the rays of the sun. It is the only active sunscreen ingredient approved by the US FDA for babies under six months. So it’s safe to say that it’s the most gentle, yet effective, sun protection ingredient available. Zinc oxide is also known to be a physical shield to reflect High Energy Visible Light (HEV) emitted from our computer, phones and TV screens. HEV has been recently linked to fatigued and inflamed skin. Hence, zinc oxide is the perfect natural ingredient to battle the ills in our modern life.

Cupuaçu butter

Organic certified cold-pressed oil derived from the nut of the Cupuaçu tree (a tree from the chocolate family) grown in eastern part of the Amazonian rainforest. This tropical tree – Brazil’s national symbol – is known as a super fruit for its powerful anti-oxidant properties. It is also known to enhance the performance of other ingredients. It’s also a rich moisturiser, full of skin-friendly nutrients that improve its tone and texture. At the same time, it also harnesses the power of nature to support skin from damage caused by free-radicals in pollution. Cupuaçu butter also helps improve skin’s elasticity as it supports skin proteins like collagen and elastin. It does this by helping the skin’s natural barrier manage levels of toxins such as pollution – some of the key factors that contribute to fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots and other signs of ageing.

Hyaluronic acid

Eco certified natural raw material made by the fermentation of wheat. Hyaluronic acid is also naturally present in your skin and combined with collagen, it is one of the most important factors that helps maintain smooth, wrinkle-free skin. It works like a magnet for moisture, which means that it can hydrate skin like no other. It is also known to help maintain the production of collagen, fight free radicals and maintain skin’s elasticity. We use both high and low molecular weight HA to pack your skin with moisture, while also helping build its own supply of hyaluronic acid. The average human body contains about 15 grams of hyaluronic acid. However, one third of that gets degraded and synthesized on a daily basis. As we age, we produce less and less of it. Plastic surgeons often inject hyaluronic acid into sunken areas of skin to plump it up, but you don’t need to get injections to reap its benefits. Just use a product that contains hyaluronic acid for softer, smoother, more hydrated skin.

Tamanu oil

Organic certified oil from the tamanu nut is obtained from the evergreen tamanu tree locally grown in the Fiji Islands. It’s used in some countries to treat extreme skin conditions such as burn wounds as it is a super powerful skin nutrient. Its skin regenerative properties are exceptional and it also helps the skin build up strength against the environment.

Yuzu oil

Cold-pressed fruit ingredient Yuzu has been in cultivation in Japan since the 10th century.In Asia, the scent is used to boost a tired mind and the oil is used to invigorate tired skin. It has antibacterial properties and is good for skin regeneration.

Manuka extract

Natural extract from the manuka flower that’s indigenous to New Zealand. It’s one of the only ingredients in the world that can kill the MRSA bug and therefore used globally in hospitals for healing all sorts of wounds. It offers a host of benefits – it has strong antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, and also kills yeasts and candida, all while being very gentle on the skin. As an ingredient, it helps manage all the stresses of modern urban living, including pollution and blue light damage. Traditionally, it has been used to promote new cell growth and thereby overall growth and the healing of wounds. Hence it’s often used in acne treatments to prevent and reduce scars and replenish the skin’s natural balance.

 

Hero Ingredients:

Cetearyl alcohol
Eco certified natural certified fatty alcohol derived naturally from coconut. Fatty alcohols are different from skin-sensitising alcohols. They function as an emulsifier – the binding factor that holds liquid elements together and makes a cream. Emulsifiers are vital to ensure all the ingredients delivered together for optimal results.

Cetearyl glucoside
Eco certified natural ingredient derived from coconut and glucose from natural sugar. This gentle ingredient is part of the emulsifying process and is also nutritious for the skin.

Glycerine

Organic certified plant derived glycerin. It helps maintain moisture content, resulting in soft and supple skin.

Kokum butter

Organic certified ingredient from the kokum tree. These have grown in the hilly regions of Maharashtra and Goa for millennia. This natural extract is known to nourish and regenerate skin without clogging pores.

Dehydroxanthan gum

Eco certified natural ingredient derived from fermentation of sugar found in corn. It’s known to support your skin’s self-hydrating properties and helps skin better absorb active ingredients. Plus, it leaves your skin feeling immediately smoother.

Dehydroacetic Acid

NaTrue® (True Friends of Natural and Organic Cosmetics®) Certified + U.S. FDA Permitted + Soil Association® certified organic compound which keeps our product fresh. Commonly used in the food industry for prolonging freshness of strawberries. This is one of the only ‘ecologically friendly raw materials’ as per the strictest European Commission regulations.

Natural fragrance

Often, fragrances are the ingredients that you have to be wary of because they tend to contain the most dangerous ingredients for humans. Many are packed with 2,500+ chemicals which are kept secret – meaning you can’t see them on the ingredients label. We believe transparency is more important today than it has ever been in the past. So, we wanted to use a natural fragrance formulated by New Zealand’s top perfumer. He is a 3rd generation perfumer and specializes in the creative art of Aromatherapy. All the fragrances are made from elements of essential oils. The products do not contain any ethyl alcohol and ethyl alcohol has not been used in the process of manufacture/ extraction.
The products do not contain any components or products of animal origin.

  • Top note of the fragrance - Pennyroyal
  • Heart note of the fragrance - Vanilla & Peru Balsam
  • Base note of the fragrance - Sandalwood

The heart note is vanilla as it is a fantastic source of vitamin B and B6 which play an important role in the maintenance of healthy skin. The antioxidant properties of vanilla are also known to protect your skin from damage caused by environmental pollutants and toxins. The scent is a cool, creamy vanilla with a sweet, lightly woody base. The fragrance was specifically formulated using aromatherapy to make you feel calmly energized every morning when you first apply it. The fragrance is extremely subtle and wont interact with any perfume you use over it.

Benzyl alcohol

NaTrue® (True Friends of Natural and Organic Cosmetics®) Certified + U.S. FDA Permitted + Soil Association® certified organic compound which helps protect our product. Commonly found in the petals of the Jasmine flower, this is one of the only ‘ecologically friendly raw materials’ as per the strictest European Commission regulations.

Neem seed oil

Organic certified neem seed oil has been used for centuries in India to treat various skin ailments such as acne. Its many powerful qualities help balance the harmful effects of urban living on the skin.

Potassium sorbate

Food-Grade Certified + Natural Products Association® approved + Whole Foods® Premium Body Care approved ingredient. Originally discovered in the berries from the rowan tree. Potassium sorbate is known to be as harmless to humans as common salt and has been used in the food industry for over 80 years. It is used to keep foods like jams, cakes and milkshakes fresh! In skin-care it is known to maintain your skin’s pH at the right level and keeps products fresh for longer.
