NewCityLife™ Range

Advanced Anti-Pollution Skin Nutrition


92% Of the World’s population live in places where air pollution levels exceed the recommended limits set by the World Health Organisation.

The CityLife™ range is uniquely formulated and clinically-tested to target very specific pollutants and protect the skin from day to day exposure to indoor and outdoor pollution, including Ozone, PM (particulate matter), nickel and other heavy metals, and deeply damaging Singlet Oxygen, Peroxyl, Hydroxyl & Halogenated free radicals. The formulation process took 2 years of continuous clinical testing to ensure the very best results were achieved.

This range has been a very long time coming for me so I am pleased to be finally able to share it with you.

Pollution is a hot topic right now, but we actually started formulating a highly anti-oxidant booster 6 years ago, unfortunately the science was simply not there. We have been working hard in our own laboratory towards major advances in natural cosmetology and micro encapsulation. Two years of trial and error have now resulted in a successful formulation that provides unrivalled protection, and I’m absolutely over the moon with the results.

I hope you enjoy our new CITYLIFE range.

Air Pollution & The Skin

City life, fun though it is, exposes us constantly to particularly high levels of air pollution. This starts from the moment we wake, taking in our daily commute, exercising or just enjoying a coffee outside, through to less obvious sources such as air conditioning, office life, even cooking and cleaning, meaning our skin is constantly exposed to the damage caused by indoor and outdoor pollution.

Pollution is also common in the countryside, especially in areas where large-scale manufacturing or farming might be taking place.

The average home or office contains 60,000 different chemicals.

Indoor Pollution

  • Cooking
  • Computers
  • Furniture
  • Air Conditioning

Outdoor Pollution

  • Underground
  • Industry
  • Vehicles
  • Farming

How does pollution affect my skin?

The mixture of Particulate Matter (PM), Ozone, Heavy Metals, VOC'S and Free Radicals can cause major damage to our skin. Free radicals, caused by pollution, attack the cells and the skin’s own anti-oxidants. PM and heavy metals can both cause problems on the surface of the skin or penetrate through the pores leading to deeper damage.

  • Cellular and DNA damage
  • Breakdown of collagen
  • Increased fine lines
  • Loss of elasticity & lack-lustre
  • Breakdown of the lipid barrier
  • Abnormal sensitivity
  • Increased inflammation
  • Hyper-pigmentation & dark spots

What can we do for cleaner air at home?

While air quality in our cities is a major discussion topic and governments across the world are working on policies to reduce harmful emissions and pollutants, there are small everyday things we can do to help improve the air quality around us.

  • Don't smoke
  • Cut down on using aerosols
  • Swap air-fresheners for natural options
  • Monitor humidity levels
  • Take shoes off when entering the home
  • Keep floors and walls clean
  • Use eco-friendly cleaning products
  • When possible invest in organic fruits and vegetables

But the best, and our favourite, solution is to surround ourselves with beautiful air-purifying plants. NASA has identified dozens of plants which help filter the air from pollutants like formaldehyde and ammonia.
