Reviews

I have very sensitive and easily irritated skin. I have perioral dermatitis and have struggled to find anything that doesn’t flare it up. I emailed Agi who was super helpful and recommended a couple of products to me. I ordered both and my skin couldn’t be happier. I’ve had no flare ups and my skin is smooth and well cared for. Can’t recommend these products enough.

HELEN

I use this moisturiser every day and I just love it. It instantly transforms your skin to feeling alive, hydrated and protected. I have dry skin and have always struggled to find a moisturiser than lasts, but this one keeps my skin nice all day. Even when I don’t have time to apply makeup, I feel confident with my moisturiser on.

TRACY

I love this daily moisturiser. It leaves my skin hydrated, plumped and lasts all day! It is a great make-up primer too. I have sensitive skin with hormonal break outs and I’m 40 Yrs old. This has calmed my skin and I’ve had no break outs…even in the very warm weather! Truly a beautiful moisturiser and you only need a small amount.

COLETTE

“I love all things beauty and skincare but also have very sensitive skin so the bar is set very high for any products. I tried a range of products from Vemel and I have to say that the vitamin rich face butter was a firm favourite. Whilst you have to let your skin adapt over the first few days (it’s coping with all that added goodness you don’t normally get!) you’ll notice the difference in how your skin feels and you’ll be left wanting more!”

How Sugar Impacts The Skin: The Sweet and The Sour Truths

How Sugar Impacts The Skin: The Sweet and The Sour Truths

Ah, the sweet aftermath of Easter weekend. While indulging in chocolate bunnies and marshmallow chicks may have brought joy to our taste buds, let’s peel back the wrapper to understand how sugar impacts our skin, and why enjoying ourselves is super important but...

Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin condition affecting around 1 in 10 people, characterized by persistent facial redness and other symptoms like visible blood vessels, acne-like bumps, and thickening of the skin.

Causes of Rosacea are still unclear but may involve genetics, environmental triggers and inflammation.

Managing Rosacea involves reducing symptoms, preventing flare-ups, and improving overall skin health.

Measures to manage Rosacea include identifying and avoiding trigger factors such as hot beverages, alcohol, spicy foods, and extreme temperatures. 

Consistent use of mineral sunscreens is recommended to protect against UV damage without causing irritation.
Stress management techniques like yoga, meditation, and deep breathing exercises can help reduce stress-induced symptoms. 

A gentle, fragrance-free skincare routine is important for Rosacea sufferers, with products like Wonder Balm containing soothing ingredients like Chamomile and Calendula to alleviate irritation and inflammation of flrae-ups.

Maintaining a healthy skin barrier is crucial, with serums like Active Radiance Serum delivering antioxidants and promoting healing for breakout-prone skin, and Advanced Protective Serum locking in hydration and promoting collagen production for dryer skin types.
I am forever gratful for the love and support you give us! 
Vemel was born to stand out and our products will always be inspired by a relentless desire for powerful results. I truly believe these can be only be achieved by formulating with the very best potent & purposeful ingredients, mindfully sourced from around the globe. 

Thank you to the best customers ever. Agi x
April marks Earth Day… here’s our reflection on environmental consciousness. 

We all know how the beauty industry has changed over the past years with new large & small brands popping up left, right and centre. Celebrities & influencers are now bigger than ever, but driving change comes from within, from a relentless commitment, not simply through advertising budgets or large social media reach.
In 2019, after years of preparing for the Vemel launch, we successfully launched our brand in December, the very same month the worldwide pandemic started, yet our core values and commitment to you and our planet remain. With cosmetic giants promising to reduce the amount of water & plastic usage, to stop animal testing, with brands misleading marketing claims that lead us to believe their products are vegan, yet still test on animals. Misleading ingredient lists, requiring a google search to de-code names, only to find out as little as 5-15% of the ingredients are actually natural, not to mention bulking ingredients like water. Not only are waterless products more effective for your skin, they last longer, meaning less products are consumed, less packaging is used, less waste is created. 
We don’t compromise on sustainability because our future generations depend on us, and this is at the heart of what we do. Our brand is plastic free and our outer packaging is fully biodegradable. We use biodegradable, vegan water-based inks. We made a conscious decision not to use essential oils in any of our products as it is widely known that they are toxic to aquatic life and can have a long-lasting impact on marine ecosystems. Our products are packed with organic, nutrient-rich upcycled ingredients, to deliver results for even those of us that have the most sensitive skin. Always vegan, always cruelty free, always planet friendly and marine life conscious.
Today we are grateful, for each and every one of you, for your ongoing support for Vemel. Together, we are able reach milestones and care for our planet so that future generation will be able to enjoy it too. Xx
Why serums are your skin’s best friend?
Serums are made up of very small molecules, meaning a serum can penetrate your skin a lot deeper than your moisturiser. This is particularly handy because serums are usually a lightweight but highly concentrated liquid product, designed to target and protect against specific skin issues which require working a few layers deep into our epidermis.
When combined, the layering of a serum followed by a moisturiser gives the skin a boost of hydration as well as antioxidant dense ingredients ready to address an array of skin concerns like our Advanced Protective Serum - organic blueberry & cherry elixir to protect your skin against pollution, photoaging and blue light damaged but also to boost your skin radiance and strengthen your your skin’s barrier, lock in hydration and stimulate collagen production - all in one bottle! 💕
Hands up! Who suffers with dry, dull and dehydrated skin? Take your skincare routine to the next level with our award winning face butter! Sustainably sourced, responsibly formulated with scientifically proven ingredients to deliver ultimate hydration and reveal brighter glowing complexion.
All too often we’re told about the impact sugar has on our body and overall health, but did you know excessive sugar consumption can disrupt the balance of your skin’s microbiome? While indulging in chocolate eggs & bunnies may have brought joy to our taste buds, let’s peel back the wrapper to understand how sugar impacts our skin, and why enjoying ourselves is super important but finding balance is crucial. When we eat foods (or drink drinks) with high sugar content, the body experiences a spike in our blood sugar levels, which then has a ripple effect.  One specific effect is triggering the production of Advanced Glycation End Products (or AGEs). The process of Glycation is a natural chemical reaction which occurs when our insulin cannot cope with the sugar levels in the bloodstream. Unfortunately, the process of glycation impacts our collagen and elastin fibres, the key components for maintaining elasticity and firmness in the skin. Once collagen and elastin link with sugars they begin to break down and become weaker, making signs of ageing more visible, like wrinkles, sagging skin and dull complexion.  High glycemic foods cause our insulin levels to escalate, and this hormonal rollercoaster our bodies experience, as a result, can also stimulate oil production through our sebaceous glands - the outcome being clogged pores and acne breakouts.
Antioxidants play a vital role in minimising the damaging effects sugar can have on the skin by neutralising free radicals and reducing oxidative stress.  Antioxidants respond to the process of Glycation we mentioned earlier by scavenging free radicals and preventing them from causing any more harm to the skin’s structural proteins (collagen and elastin). Antioxidants, both ingested and applied topically can also help to reduce inflammation by supporting the skin’s natural defence mechanisms and contributing to a strong and balanced skin barrier despite the adverse effects of sugar. A serum is perhaps the easiest way to ensure the skin is getting an adequate amount of antioxidants, neutralise free radicals and destabilise molecules that contribute to oxidative stress and premature aging.
Good morning from Vemel’s lab. I hope you all had an amazing Easter Weekend.
I can’t hide my excitement so here’s a little update on what’s happening at Vemel this week 🙂
We are finalising our packaging designs for our new product launch next month! Get ready for hybrid waterless skincare redefined! With a bigger, more powerful dose of actives, infused with the latest biome-friendly ingredients. Designed to impress – you will not be disappointed! 
 
 Also, over the next 3 months, Vemel’s collection will welcome 3 new products! 
 
Any guesses?
Guaranteed radiance for dry, dull and dehydrated skin ✌️❤️

Did you know pollution is the second highest cause of premature skin ageing after UV rays? Airborne pollutants can cause brown spots, dull skin tone and enlarged pores and wrinkles. Our Advanced Protective Serum steps in to protect your skin from pollutants & photoaging whilst fighting free radical damage. This revolutionary dual action serum will also boost your skin radiance and strengthen your skin barrier to help lock in hydration and stimulate collagen production.
Because cleansers are not a leave on product, most people severely underestimate how much they can impact the skin. Which is why when starting your cleansing step, we recommend cleanser filled with all the antioxidants and multivitamins your skin could want to reduce inflammation, whilst still effectively purifying the skin, even removing stubborn make up and SPF with ease.
Ingredients like Organic Raspberry CO2 Extract works wonders for those combating the signs and symptoms of inflammaging, it’s high vitamin E and A content means it supports the skins moisture barrier, maintains its elasticity and helps improves the appearance of wrinkles.

Supercritical co2 extraction is an efficient and environmentally clean way of extracting the purest and longest lasting extracts from plants without leaving any solvents behind. This means that the extracts have the highest concentrations of all the good stuff (vitamins, fatty acids and omega rich nutrients) which deliver faster and stronger effects on our skin.
Dehydrated Skin – What to look for and what to know
Despite common characteristics to dry skin, dehydrated skin is a condition which can affect any skin type, even oily and dry skin types can experience dehydration in the skin. The main premise of dehydrated skin is a lack of water in the skin. Those experiencing dehydration can also feel an uncomfortable tight dry feeling in the skin, but this can also be accompanied an overproduction of oil as the skin tries to compensate for the lack of water therefore becoming more prone to breakouts. Dehydrated skin can happen to any of us from time to time, given that it can be onset by various factors ranging from a change in weather, diet, hormones, even just being on a plane for a few hours or sitting in an air conditioned office all day can cause our skin to experience water loss.

How To Layer Skincare Dehydrated Skjn?

For mature, dull, dry and dehydrated skin we recommend starting with our No.1 Cleansing Oil. Rich in vitamins and antioxidants this product works effectively to purify the skin without stripping away and moisture.
Follow up your cleanser with our Advanced Protective Serum – suitable for even sensitive and reactive skin, this product can not only fight off the free radicals associated with blue light damage, it has been specifically curated to stimulate collagen production and lock in moisture into the skin. 
The next step in your routine is your moisturiser – we recommend our Vitamin Rich Face Butter – with Pomegranate Sterols and Green Algae Lipids, this moisturiser works effectively to increase moisture levels on the skin all the while reducing water loss which ultimately minimises visible signs of ageing, to unveil a brighter, healthier complexion.

In 2013, after suffering with severe pain for several months I was diagnosed with severe endometriosis - a word I’d never heard of before. I was told there’s no cure for endo, however there are steps we can take to help with symptoms, also it was very unlikely that I would ever be able to have another child. Fast forward 3 years, 3 surgeries (that sadly didn’t relieve my daily pain) copious medication plus an astronomical amount of painkillers I still couldn’t live my life like I did before. At the time my mother was also diagnosed with cancer, my son suffered with extreme eczema and | became intensely aware that what we put onto our bodies is as important as how we treat the inside. Slowly but surely turned my life upside down, I exercised through the pain (which truly helped me out long term), I implemented an organic only diet for my whole family, I started an anti-inflammatory diet enriched with organic turmeric capsules (known active anti-inflammatory ingredient to help endometriosis) and probiotics, avoided sugar and alcohol. I think gut health plays a big role here! This is also when I first started to make my own products, it’s when the values of Vemel were born.
I’m a firm believer that our bodies have an amazing ability to detoxify and prevent illnesses if given the right tools. Please note this is not professional medical advice. it’s my personal experience and what worked for me. I truly believe making all these lifelong changes paid off. It’s given me a new healthy life, and we now have two beautiful children. I couldn’t be more grateful. I know endometriosis can be a very lonely place, please reach out, I’m always here to talk. With love, Agi.

With Love, Agi & Vemel Team
With a love of skincare backed by many years in the industry (right down to developing products from idea to final formula!), our founder Agi shares her skincare routine for mature (dull, dry and dehydrated skin).

 Starting with our No.1 Cleansing Oil. Rich in vitamins and antioxidants this product works effectively to purify the skin without stripping away moisture. It’s ability to gently emulsify when adding water means you do not need to run or tug away with a cloth, preventing any damage that could otherwise occur during this step. 
Follow up your cleanser with our Advanced Protective Serum – suitable for even sensitive and reactive skin, this product can not only fight off the free radicals associated with blue light damage, but it has been specifically curated to stimulate collagen production and lock in moisture into the skin. 
The next step in your routine is your moisturiser – Agi recommends our Vitamin Rich Face Butter – with Pomegranate Sterols and Green Algae Lipids, this moisturiser works effectively to increase moisture levels on the skin all the while reducing water loss which ultimately minimises visible signs of ageing, to unveil a brighter, healthier complexion.

Any questions, leave them in the comments below!
As with every skincare routine, it all starts with cleansing. This step really is make or break for anyone’s skin, but especially those with problematic and rosacea. This is because opting for an overly harsh cleanser is going to strip away your skins natural oils, disrupting your skin microbiome and leaving the skin barrier exposed to environmental stressors. Skin that is already suffering with either rosacea or other skin conditions is already dealing with inflammation and irritation, so to use a harsh cleanser morning and night would certainly aggravate things further. Which is why we recommend opting for an oil cleanser. Oil cleansers, when applied to the skin, bind with our skins sebum, so when we come to washing it off, it also lifts and removes any make-up, dirt and impurities with the oil, leaving us feeling fresh faced without causing any damage.
