Fulvic Acid : What you need to know

Joanna Melville | 26.02.2021

Dull skin can be caused by many factors, one of which is not cleansing the skin properly.

A buildup of dead cells can make the skin's surface rough, and cause skin to absorb light rather than reflect making skin look dull. Our NEW ingredient, Fulvic Acid is the perfect first step in your skincare regimen to achieve that bright, enviable glow!

What is Fulvic Acid?

Sustainably sourced from Finland, Peat is a natural type of mud that comes from swamps which is naturally high in Fulvic Acid, it is richer in nutrients than plants grown elsewhere in the world thanks to the short and intense growth season of Finnish nature. It contains bio-minerals, trace elements, vitamins, amino acids, phyto-hormones and fatty acids, which are all beneficial to keeping skin healthy.

How does it work to brighten skin?

As we’ve explored in our Bright Skin 101, Fulvic Acid is one of our latest brightening heroes alongside Vitamin C and Symbright. It’s benefits include strong antioxidant, anti-inflammator and astringent properties making it ideal for cleansing the skin from dead cells, dirt and debris which can dull it’s natural glow as well as soothing inflammation from free radicals such as pollution. In addition, it supports the skin’s rejuvenative process for long term effect and protection.
