When you open your beauty cabinet, how many serums, oils, tinctures and tonics are you faced with? But how many – if you’re being completely honest – really work?
Like us, we bet that although you’re feeling fully stocked and you may have a shelf full of formulas you’ve tried and tested, there are probably only a few that have made the cut and sit as part of your regular routine. We understand too, that it can sometimes seem overwhelming to add another product to your regime – but if you’re searching for real, radiant results, we invite you to consider incorporating one (or all!) of our Boosters into your daily beauty habit.
Set to become cult-favourites, here’s why our Boosters will be a gamechanger for your skin...
They work on all skin types
We understand that by choosing one of our Boosters, you’re making an investment in yourself and your skin – so it was important to us to develop formulas that work effectively and provide real, visible results for all skin types. Whether you have oily, dry, combination or normal skin, each formula has been carefully crafted to nourish your complexion on a cellular level.
They blend modern science & nature
Each potent bio-active ingredient has been carefully considered and selected to ensure we can deliver real results – targeting skin inflammation and sensitivity, oxidative stress and cellular damage, collagen degradation and the effects of premature ageing. Ayurvedic and adaptogenic ingredients – including Bakuchiol, ashwagandha, ginseng, holy basil – combine with native Australian ingredients – such as Kakadu and Davidson plums, finger lime and quandong – to create cutting-edge formulas. Where possible, we’ve also utilised modern green cellular extraction processes to ensure we can deliver the most potent forms of each ingredient, for real, radiant results. This intricate process ensures that a plant’s total phytoactive profile is captured and utilised in the same form as it exists in nature, without being damaged. This means that the active compounds, vitamins and minerals in each ingredient are infused directly into your skin. Currently, La Mav is one of the few skincare brands in Australia who utilise this process.
They amplify the benefits of your chosen skincare
As the hero product in your skincare regime, our Boosters are designed to work with your existing products to amplify their results. This means that you don’t need to fork out for a brand new skincare protocol in order to truly feel and see the beauty benefits of our Boosters. After cleansing and toning, simply apply a small amount of your chosen Booster and once absorbed, follow with your favourite serum and moisturiser.
They deliver elevated results
Each formula boasts different beauty benefits, so here’s a quick guide on how to choose the right Booster for you:
Bakuchiol 4% Natural Retinol Alternative
If you’re concerned about fine lines, wrinkles and the effects of premature ageing, adding our Bakuchiol 4% to your routine is a great place to start. As a natural and more gentle alternative to the more traditional retinol formulas on the market, Bakuchiol is a plant-based retinol derived from the seeds and leaves of Eastern Asia’s ‘babchi’ plant. This powerful extract has been used in both Ayurvedic and Chinese-medicine modalities for centuries and works to promote improved collagen synthesis and reduced skin pigmentation. Our Bakuchiol 4% formula also contains adaptogenic herbs like ashwagandha to combat stressed skin and antioxidants from green tea and pomegranate to improve cell renewal and fight free radical damage.
For skin that’s dull, dehydrated, sensitive or in need of brightening, our Collagen Support is packed with ingredients to boost your complexion. Containing Kakadu Plum – the richest natural source of vitamin C of any fruit – this blend promotes deep, cellular hydration, improved collagen synthesis and skin elasticity. The addition of finger lime not only helps to gently exfoliate the skin thanks to the presence of naturally-occurring alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), but also moisturise the skin from the inside out thanks to the presence of tryptophan which locks in moisture and helps to protect the skin’s natural barrier. The result? Skin that’s more resilient to environmental stressors like pollution, stress and UV damage – all of which can contribute to premature ageing.
Omega-3 Advanced Night Cream
Rich in essential fatty acids from shea butter, avocado oil and chia, macadamia and raspberry seed oils, our complex nighttime treatment helps to encourage skin cell renewal and repair. Fucoidan extract from Wakame seaweed helps to support skin strength and structure, improving skin elasticity while also reducing wrinkle depth while Chlorella Vulgaris – a green microalgae – is rich in natural antioxidants and helps to correct skin imperfections. With an extra boost of hydration from hyaluronic acid too, this focused formula will leave your skin feeling moisturised and renewed come morning.
