Perricone MD have been a huge favourite of the Mankind team for a long time. Not only do they design innovative, extremely high quality products, but their commitment to a science based approach is something we really appreciate as well. Their Cold Plasma products are some of the best facial treatments we’ve come across, offering a range of effects tailored to individual skin care needs. The new Cold Plasma+ Range is their latest offering available on Mankind, and frankly we love it.
Cold Plasma+ Serum is high in Copper Peptides, which boost firmness and tautness of the skin to combat signs of ageing. It’s also nutrient packed, delivering the essential fatty acids Omega 3 and Omega 6, as well as Omega 9. Its key ingredient Vitamin C Ester is what truly makes the Cold Plasma+ Serum stand out. Vitamin C as it is typically found in natural plant foods, as well as in dietary supplements and skin care products, is acidic and therefore highly reactive. For this reason, while it has benefits for the skin, it can come with the risk of causing damage. Vitamin C Ester is a more stable, less reactive Vitamin C derivative, which has many of the same effects but without the risk of damage.
The benefits of Vitamin C Ester include reduction in blemishes, more even skin tone, firmer skin, and a reduction of redness and discoloration. These effects were observed by the overwhelming majority of those involved in the company’s clinical trials. In addition, 97% of participants in one study noticed a significant improvement in pore size, while 100% showed significant improvement in fine lines and wrinkles.
While as with many Vitamin C products, Vitamin C Ester can occasionally lead to skin drying out, these side-effects are far less noticeable in Cold Plasma+ due to its high Glycerine content, and the moisturising effects that come with it. Simply put, this makes it one of the most impressive treatments for blemish reduction and combating ageing on the market.
Cold Plasma+ Eye Cream is similarly composed of Copper Peptides, Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids, and Vitamin C Ester. However, it is formulated differently to feel lighter and act in a gentler way, targeted towards the delicate skin around the eyes. The blemish reducing effects of its key active ingredients are perfect for reducing the dark circles that arise around the eyes, while puffiness and wrinkles are rapidly reduced, giving noticeable results in only a few applications.
