Wonder Balm from Vemel

Ever wondered how a skincare founder and formulator takes a few humble ingredients and turns them into your staple product?

The answer is simple; a dose of expert knowledge, a splash of passion and a whole lot of commitment. That’s how our founder Agi came to create her latest product, the much awaited and much asked for Collagen Boosting Hydration Cream. Because skincare is more than just creating products in a lab – it’s about a partnership between skincare creator, and skincare lovers – and that’s our favourite kind of duo. And for those that have long been asking for a lightweight moisturiser with a non buttery texture, rest assured, we heard.

Our Never Changing Ethos Has Just Stepped Up A Gear

Since the inception of Vemel, we’ve committed ourselves to the highest of standards – a waterless, vegan, eco friendly and sustainable company that won’t compromise on quality. Well, with our latest launch, not only have we proudly committed to our ethos as always, we’ve taken things up a notch. Finding the right ingredients is one thing, but extraction and enhancement methods are a whole other ball game. But, we’re no newbies to the world of skincare technology, and we definitely don’t leave any stone unturned. You’ve seen it before in our Advanced Protective Serum with our sustainably cultivated algae extract, and the feedback we received spoke volumes – because finding the right method matters when it comes to maximising results. So when it came to our Collagen Boosting Hydration Cream, we knew the right methods could take an already great ingredient and turn it into something special. Because pioneering the way for higher standards in skincare is something at Vemel we’ll never shy away from.

Cutting Edge Skincare Technology 

Plant extracts and oils have long been used in skincare to bring the benefits of nature’s goodness to our skin, but as of late advancements in the methods used for obtaining and enhancing ingredients has meant we are better able to get maximum goodness from each drop of product. That’s where we delved into the innovative world of Stem Cell technology in skincare. Why? Because Stem Cell technology, derived primarily from plants and fruits are not live stem cells, but rather growth factors and proteins as well as other bioactive compounds which are able to influence cellular behaviour within the skin. So when our founder Agi came across the many benefits of Apple and Argan Stem Cells in particular, it was clear these were stand out ingredients. Not only are they rich in epigenetic factors and metabolites, which boosts the longevity and vitality of skin cells (making them an overall pro-aging powerhouse) these stem cells also stimulate the fibroblasts (the cells responsible for collagen and elastin production) which improves skin elasticity as well as reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Their ability to boost cell renewal and protect against environmental stressors makes them invaluable in the pursuit of pro-aging ingredients. The extraction and cultivation of these wonders are what makes the magic of skincare and science the perfect marriage. The advancements in skincare mean we are able to adopt sophisticated biotechnological processes to extract and protect these ingredients without allowing any damage to the quality of the ingredient. So it’s fair to say, the ingredients obtained for our Collagen Boosting Hydration Cream was no easy feat, but a labour of love. Paired with Collamung Ferment,rich in proteins, amino acids and peptides – this moisturiser is bursting with hydrating and healing ingredients. As well as it’s many benefits, the fermentation process which creates Collamung Ferment reduces the the potential for irritation, perfect for those with delicate, reactive skin. So for those with dry, dehydrated, mature and even eczema prone skin, this one’s for you as much as it is for any other skin type.

Waterless and Weightless

The next hurdle was to create a product that was lightweight on the skin, without compromising on our waterless stance. For those that are new here, water in skincare is a definite no. Why, you ask?

Did you know, despite being hailed as the ultimate hydrator, water in skincare not only dilutes the potency of active ingredients, it results in quicker product spoilage and contributes to a constant cycle of dependency in which the skin feels a temporary quench of thirst, but ultimately remains dehydrated?

Despite all this, water is the number one ingredient in majority of moisturisers on the market. Fortunately, we aren’t letting up – so new methods, incredible ingredients and innovative technology mean we no longer have to settle for sub par products. You can find a product which delivers all the hydration to quench our skins thirst, feels lightweight on the skin, without being pumped full of water – in fact, you’ve just found it. In order to achieve the lightweight moisturiser (which actually moisturises!) our founder Agi explored alternatives that don’t just dilute the product, but instead enhance it further.And then, she came across Young Barley Leaf Organic Juice. Well, why don’t we let Agi explain it best; ‘Constantly seeking new, advanced ingredients in skincare, I found myself inspired by the ever-evolving world of cosmetics. Partnering with pioneering suppliers of organic raw ingredients, when I discovered Young Barley Leaf Organic Juice, and knew it was exactly what I’d been waiting for! Renowned for its numerous skin benefits, young barley juice is packed with nutrients and vitamins A, C, E. It’s known to brighten and even out skin tone, hydration properties, anti-inflammatory properties to soothe skin and calm conditions like rosacea,  and most importantly, it supports collagen production, enhancing skin elasticity and firmness. We’re thrilled to incorporate this incredible ingredient into our new light moisturiser!’. And there you have it; no compromise, no cutting corners, just pure, potent, high quality skincare – because when theres a will, theres always a way.

Ingredients With A Difference 

For too long now we’ve seen the same ingredients in skincare used time and time again, with marketing attempting to convince us it isn’t just the same product repackaged. But we skincare and nature lovers know nature is ever giving, so we aren’t looking to rinse and repeat when it comes to our products. In fact, discovering new, unique natural ingredients that bring a powerhouse of goodness is something our founder Agi has done time and time again. So when she delved into Desert Date Oil and fell in love, we knew it was going to be special – and she did not fall short. The benefits of Desert Date Oil are truly endless, from improving skin elasticity, making the skin appear more youthful and firm, combatting free radicals and smoothing lines, hydrate the skin and helping in reinforcing the skin barrier, preventing moisture loss and keeping the skin soft and supple – it’s fair to say this incredible ingredient is packed full of goodness. It’s impressive host of antioxidants and nutrients means this oil can work wonders against ‘inflammaging’ (the idea of inflammation within the body and skin being directly related to and causing accelerated/premature aging). In fact it also contains compounds like sterols and flavonoids which help soothe irritated skin, making it an amazing choice for those with sensitive skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis. Desert Date Oils unique ability to balance oil production means it works wonders for those with dry or oily skin. It is pure and potent and purposeful – just the thing our Collagen Boosting Hydration Cream needed. This paired with rejuvenating Apple and Argan Stem Cells, and Algae Lipids makes a moisturiser that is maximum goodness, minimum fuss. Because good skincare doesn’t need all the extra fills to give your skin what it’s looking for.
