Our Skin’s Delivery Systems

The Diamond Powder that creates micro channels within the skin to facilitate the delivery of active ingredients.

WHAT ARE DELIVERY SYSTEMS?

The performance of many skincare products are often boosted by new active technologies and targeted systems that help to deliver these ingredients. Delivery system technology can be divided into two areas, there is the surface/topical delivery and then the second is the delivery past the surface. Ingredients that sit on top of the skin ( stratum corneum), the dead cellular level, will only provide temporary and minimal benefits whilst those that penetrate and target the living layers of the skin’s cells will be more significant in change and will more than likely see more long lasting results ( especially when focusing on anti-ageing formulas).

In terms of skin penetration, this can be defined by two general understandings, physical and chemical. Physical can be through electrical charge, thermal, light or ultrasound energy and chemical can be achieved through fatty acids, alcohols, surfactants and proprietary enhancers.

THE CELESTIAL BLACK DIAMOND PARTICLES

What is the ultimate aim for anti-ageing skincare formulators? To create products that will stimulate the growth of collagen. Collagen and elastin act as the skin’s support system. Collagen is the most abundant material within our skin, but as we age it depletes dramatically. Unsurprisingly, a loss of collagen creates a butterfly effect in the process of ageing. Further consequences for the skin include thinning of the skin, appearance of wrinkles, sagging and discolouration.

The ideal anti-ageing product needs to incorporate some kind of transportation system in order for the active ingredients to be absorbed. Our unique NACY2 formula activates collagen production but without an effective transportation method this formula wouldn’t be as effective. As Collagen particles are too large to penetrate the skin’s surface, they can often be left to sit on the skin’s surface instead of penetrating and delivering the vital ingredient. To overcome this problem, we’ve infused our Black Diamond range with Black Diamond Particles which slip below the surface layer of the skin to deliver the NACY2 formula and other potent ingredients such as Vitamin C and Liquorice Root to restore and preserve the complexion as well as aiding to stimulate collagen production. Through transcellular penetration, the Black Diamond Particles enters and pushes through the skin’s cells for optimum renewal.

A SIMPLER EXFOLIANT

Opt for a gentle exfoliant that won’t over strip the skin as your skin transitions. Applying our Clinical Exfoliator as the ideal leave on exfoliant to the skin will combat irritation yet slough away the dead skin cells. Formulated with Rosemary Hydrolat and grounded in a bio-fermented base means even the most sensitive of skin types can exfoliate without risking irritation.

If you were to advise a London guide, what would be on your list?

Well, As I grew up in Notting Hill, it will always have my heart and if I was recommending spots in London, a wander around Notting Hill would be high up on my list. From there it would be all the best shopping destinations, the iconic private members club, Annabels, Harrods and Liberty’s for any cute and unique gifts. I would always pop into 111CRYO at Harrods for the Cryo Facial and treatment for the ultimate recharge. Sometimes the city is great, but the beautiful secrets of the English countryside is something that should be experienced.

Your In-Flight Essentials?

I don’t have a routine per say and I am certainly not as thorough as Naomi Campbell but I would apply the Meso Infusion Lip Duo and I would always wipe my phone down with anti-bacterial wipes, in fact I do this every day, the bacteria build up is no good for the skin.

In terms of Industry, where do you see the hair industry going?

Well Instagram has changed so much and has impacted the way we consume and learn within the industry, especially with so many creatives, but I still find that a massive amount of people come to the professionals to share the knowledge on how to carry out or complete a desired look, more than ever there is power behind ‘how-to’ videos.

A very valid point and in terms of 2020?

In terms of what we are to see in 2020, things are going to be super creative and we will see a wider awareness for people doing their own thing and it will be expressive and artistic. People will move away from the overtly glamorous looks and will create looks they can tailor to their everyday. As it’s currently Award Season which is the busiest time of the year leading up to the Met Ball, hairstyles are certainly more elaborate, and everyone loves an up do. I would say the most timeless look has to be the blunt bob, it comes around year on year, but it is effortless and timeless.

Outside of hair, what other industries are you into?

I am hugely into Interiors and I would describe my style as 60s/70s glamour, think elaborate and dramatic but I often fantasise about 80s Dallas and Joan Collins and I have to reign myself in. I also love Baking; it is the ultimate way to relax and I find that it is my meditation and therapy. If I’m in the USA I would bake a lot of cookies as everyone is obsessed with then over here and in the UK, I would bake more traditional styles like a lemon tart or an apple tart – it allows for me to be creative outside of my job.

Finally, the best advice you have ever received?

It would have to be from my grandfather, he would often say to me “it’s not how well you’re doing but how well people think you’re doing”. I haven’t successfully implemented it however you can look to Instagram today and people see our work and are blown away by it, but we can be so hard on ourselves and not appreciate our own work ourselves.
