All about Renaissance Cleansing Gel

12 October 2018 15:28


Our Renaissance Cleansing Gel is the original gel-to-oil enzyme cleanser, hailed as “The trusted cleanser by the skincare addicts” by The Times and “A peachy-coloured balm that delivers a proper, Dyson-deep clean. It also smells of Turkish delight.” By Tatler. Loved by our customers because it is suitable for all skin types and helps reveal clean balanced, fresh and radiant skin use after use. Here is the full de-brief on why it works and why we fell in-love with it.

 It’s a 3 in 1
Our Renaissance Cleansing Gel is a 3 in 1: it cleanses, exfoliates and works as a mini mask, gentle enough to use as a daily exfoliant. It is jam packed with Vitamins, Enzymes and nourishing Omegas, whilst encompassing our Bio-Nutritional technology to enhance the performance of all our ingredients.

Gentle Exfoliation
We believe in harnessing the power of enzymes, as they are by far the gentlest form of exfoliation, so packed our Renaissance Cleansing Gel with Fermented Pumpkin Enzymes, which are a miracle ingredient for anyone who suffers from sensitivity and perfect to incorporate into your everyday routine to thoroughly remove dead skin cells without changing the skin's natural pH and flora. 

Brightens the Complexion
It contains Vitamin A Palmitate to tackle any pigmentation woes you may have, by very gently resurfacing, it will improve dry, mature skin leaving you with a supple bright complexion. Vitamin C & E for their healing properties, and protection against pesky Free-Radicals. Starflower Oil to help improve elasticity & firmness whilst enhancing your lipid barrier for skin left beautifully soft.
Of course, we would never make a product with out our miracle ingredient MSM, wonderful at soothing inflammation and detoxifying.

Why the OSKIA Team loves it:
Here in the OSKIA office it is safe to say we are all hooked on the Renaissance Cleansing Gel from the translucent peachy colour, to the gorgeous signature renaissance scent, the Renaissance Cleansing Gel has helped members of our team even out post pregnancy pigmentation, also with continuous use it has reduced congestion and cleared breakouts whilst boosting radiance and leaving our skin PH balanced.

Our Top Tip:
Facial Massage: In the evening take your time to really work your Renaissance Cleansing Gel into your skin, not only will this encourage blood flow, encouraging lymphatic drainage to help remove toxins out of the cells and can also increase efficacy of the product by up to 30%, allowing your skin to fully absorb all the wonderful nutrients the cleanser has to offer.
Use it as a mini mask: When washing your face in the morning leave our Renaissance Cleansing Gel on whilst brushing your teeth. This allows the enzymes to work their magic before emulsifying and washing off, for a mini morning facial!

Georgie's Autumn Picks & Tips

21 September 2018 15:18

Posted in: Skin Health, Lifestyle, Nutrition


Autumn is my favourite season - the air is crisp; the sun is mild and we cosy up in oversized jumpers. In terms of skin care, not only does our skin need to repair the summer damage caused by sun and heat, but the drop in temperature also affects how our skin works. The weather change means that it now needs more protection against the cold and wind.

1. Repair. All those weeks in the sun and heat, even with SPF, leaves skin damaged. Hyper-pigmentation is heightened, skin dehydrated and free-radical damage high. Did you know that UV light stimulates a free-radical cascade? CityLife Booster protects against 97.7% of free-radical damage, whilst our brilliant Renaissance BrightLight is clinically-proven to repair and reduce sun and hormone induced hyper-pigmentation.

2. Exfoliate. It’s no longer a secret that regular exfoliation is key to glowing skin. UV dehydrates skin cells, so buff away dull cells for a smoother canvas and boost cellular regeneration. You won’t believe how smooth our Micro-Exfoliating Balm will leave your skin.

3. Restore. Now is the time to introduce a nourishing and restoring facial oil to your routine. Either to replace your daily moisturiser or as a night oil. Oils repair and protect the lipid barrier, which becomes damaged by wind, low temperature and central heating, to physically protect against the weather and temperature changes. Oils also give a natural glow to skin. Our Restoration Oil is full of floral oils, anti-inflammatories and collagen boosting actives.

Why You need Anti-Oxidants in your self-tanning products?

12 September 2018 12:08

Posted in: anti-oxidant skincare


Before we explain why we decided to use anti-oxidants in our new self-tanning range let’s look at what we know about free radicals and what they do to our skin.

What are free radicals?
Free Radicals are atoms that are missing one electron. They are everywhere. They go around desperately trying to scavenge another electron from any normal atom they meet along their way in order to complete themselves. This includes the complete, happy atoms found in our skin cells.

How do free radicals harm the skin?
Free radicals can cause damage to parts of cells such as proteins, DNA and cell membranes by stealing their electrons through a process called oxidation. (This is why free radical damage is also called “oxidative damage.”). It causes a huge amount of stress to our cells and can degrade the collagen and elastin fibres which leads to premature ageing.

What are anti-oxidants and how do they help?
Anti-oxidants donate the free radical atoms with electrons and prevent them from harming the skin while effectively protecting against oxidative stress and early signs of ageing. It is for this reason that anti-oxidants are one of the biggest trends and most important active groups in skincare and beauty.

Okay! But why in self-tanning?
A study done at Gematria Test Lab in Berlin found that DHA (the key active ingredient in fake tans that changes the colour of your skin) treated skin had 180% more free radicals when exposed to sun than non-DHA treated skin. Not only that UV light activates a free-radical cascade making sunlight extra damaging to skin cells. This is why we think it is imperative to add lots of powerful anti-oxidants to our New Adaptive Tanning Drops and Tanning Mist, to ensure that if you want to avoid UV damage by using fake tan, your skin is fully protected. Using our new Adaptive Tanning Drops and Tanning Mist will not only help you maintain a healthy Stratum Corneum but also give you a gorgeous sun kissed glow.
