C-Deep Vitamin C Serum - A Vitamin C Serum suitable for sensitive skin, to brighten and help prevent signs of ageing 

Often touted as one of the most important steps in any skincare routine, traditional Vitamin C serums can be problematic for those with sensitive skin making it an ingredient many avoid. DoSe by VH C-Deep Vitamin C Serum is different, rigorously tested for its suitability on skin prone to adverse reactions and containing Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, a form of vitamin C suitable for all skin types.  

Providing potent antioxidant protection, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate serum penetrates deeper than comparable Vitamin C serums to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as firm, even-out the skin tone and brighten your complexion overall. As well as this Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate destroys free radicals that cause premature ageing of skin, provides skin brightening benefits by reducing the amount of skin pigment by almost 80% and helps boost collagen production. It also stimulates the production of glycosaminoglycans such as hyaluronic acid that are naturally present in skin and so help to hydrate skin as well as plump skin cells.  

For those with sensitive skin looking for a suitable skincare regimen, pair with Super Bakuchiol Serum, a great natural and non-irritating alternative to Retinol.   

Ergothioneine Serum - Formulated for ageing skin to help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

A hero product for ageing skin, our newest serum is a powerhouse of ingredients. DoSe by VH Ergothioneine primarily addresses and targets fine lines and wrinkles but also protects against environmental stressors and nourishes, plumps and moisturises for a more radiant and youthful complexion.

If ageing skin is of concern then this key product in the range should not be missed. In fact we were so blown away by the results of the study which looked at the affect Ergothioneine has on reducing skin wrinkles and protecting against DNA damage, that many of our DoSe by VH products contain this ingredient.

Pair with Multi-Peptide Anti-Ageing Serum for the ultimate two pronged attack on all visible signs of ageing.

Hyaluronic Acid Serum - An anti-ageing formulation for hydrated, healthier looking skin

An intense formulation to promote hydration for a rejuvenated complexion. An outstanding humectant that holds 1000 times its weight in water, drawing moisture towards the skins surface for ultimate hydration. The high and low molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid in this serum means that, unlike comparable hyaluronic acid face serums, this serum is easily absorbed, making it an effective way to tackle dehydration in all skin types.

Applying hyaluronic serum ensures that your skin is hydrated and retains moisture. The salt component of Hyaluronic Acid, known as Sodium Hyaluronate, is a smaller molecule which penetrates deeper into the skin to help the dermis with hydration.

Our DoSe by VH HA has the added benefit of Ergothioneine – a winning combination to plump, rejuvenate and fight fine lines and wrinkles.

To really brighten a dull, ageing complexion pair with our much loved Prickly Pear Oil. A real treat for the skin.

Niacinamide 5% Serum - Formulated to calm, brighten, regulate sebum production and reduce breakouts

Niacinamide, also known as vitamin B3 is a very stable, water-soluble vitamin which offers a wide range of topical benefits for all skin types, making it a staple skincare ingredient in many people's daily regimes.  Tolerated by most skin types and effective for many skin concerns Niacinamide is a versatile building block ingredient helping to control oil production, visibly minimise enlarged pores, tighten lax pores, improve uneven skin tone, soften fine lines and wrinkles, diminish dullness, stimulate ceramide production and strengthen a weakened skin barrier.

So versatile we believe this serum is a great starting point for every morning and evening routine. After cleansing apply Niacinamide 5% Serum and follow with your chosen treatment depending on your individual skincare needs.  Niacinamide is able to be used with all serums. 

Peptide Rescue Serum - Formulated to help calm stressed skin, improve tone and enhance luminosity

Suitable for all skin types, Peptide Rescue Serum defends the skin against collagen damage while reducing inflammation, dryness, breakouts, fine lines and wrinkles. It works by breaking down the body's cortisol production (the stress hormone) which has been connected to a wide range of skin issues and premature ageing.

By limiting cortisol, which is linked to collagen breakdown, Peptide Rescue Serum tackles lines, wrinkles and sagging, giving you firmer, more luminous, youthful-looking skin. Cortisol also affects the production of Hyaluronic Acid. By reducing cortisol, this advanced serum restores hydration levels and combats dry, dehydrated skin. As cortisol has inflammatory effects and can result in the production of excess sebum, Peptide Rescue Serum is also an excellent way to treat and prevent spots – and help soothe inflamed skin.

Relaxation can be important in reducing the amount of cortisol produced by the body and by the skin. Meditation, deep breathing and massage may be options worth considering; supplements such as Magnolia Rhodiola Complex can help to reduce cortisol in the whole body.

Prickly Pear Oil - Rich in essential fatty acids to help smooth, soften, moisturise and restore skin elasticity

Prickly Pear Oil is an excellent multipurpose, multitasking skin and hair oil to renew and nourish, dull, lifeless skin and hair.

Extensive research has shown that the seed oil from the prickly pear plant has a number of health benefits including working as an antioxidant, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory.

This superb oil, also known as Cactus Oil or Barbary Fig Seed Oil restores skin elasticity, calms inflammatory skin, brightens dark spots, improves an uneven skin tone, and may help prevent blemishes. Use on lacklustre, dull hair or as a nail strengthener for nails that or prone to breakage.

A bathroom staple, pair with DoSe by VH C-Deep Vitamin C Serum for a brighter complexion.

Salicylic Acid 2% Serum - Formulated for oily, blemish prone skin to help target signs of congestion, for a brighter, clearer complexion

A BHA, Salicylic Acid 2% Serum exfoliates the skin and deep cleans pores, ridding them of dead cells, dirt debris and excess oil to help fights spots, fades scars and blemishes and leave you with a clearer, more radiant complexion.

Due to its superb ability to exfoliate and cleanse the pore, it helps to refine, clarify, brighten and revive your skin's texture as well as minimising scars to leave you looking fresher.

Use all over or apply directly to the inflamed area, Salicylic Acid’s small molecular size enables deep skin penetration for targeted results.  

For synergistic results to blemish prone skin and to help control breakouts, use alongside Niacinamide 5% Serum.

Squalane Face Oil - Provides moisture for a supple and more youthful complexion

If dry and dehydrated skin is your ultimate skincare battle then Squalane is the face oil for you. DoSe by VH Squalane Face Oil is a super-light, non-greasy oil and an exceptional skin hydrator.

Unlike some facial oils, Squalane Oil is light and is rapidly absorbed, so can be applied both at night and before make-up in the morning. Leaving skin soft, hydrated and plump, 100% Squalane Oil is excellent for moisturising areas prone to cracking and chapping.

Squalane is unlikely to clog pores and may in fact help regulate excess oil production in blemish-prone skin. Odourless, colourless and non-irritating, it’s suitable for all skin types, including dry, sensitive, combination, oily and sensitive skin – and for dry areas around the eyes and lips.

Pair with our DoSe by VH Hyaluronic Acid for best results.

Super Bakuchiol Serum - A natural, retinol alternative to help combat signs of ageing

As we age skin loses its elasticity and becomes thin, weak and prone to wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. How can this be prevented? The main goal of anti-ageing products is to decrease and eventually eliminate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and provide even-toning effects. The way to achieve this goal is to keep wrinkles from forming in the first place. This means preventing skin from further damage, restoring mainly the extra cellular matrix (ECM), dermal-epidermal junction (DEJ) areas and preserving skin hydration.

Extensive research has shown that the Bakuchiol active in our DoSe by VH serum does just this, making it super!

A retinol alternative, suitable for those with sensitive skin, Super Bakuchiol Serum can also calm spot and redness-prone skin, help reduce the appearance of pigmentation problems, photo-damage and seal in hydration. All without causing the peeling, dryness and increased sun sensitivity associated with retinol use.

Power up with Ergothioneine if signs of ageing is your main concern or Niacinamide 5% Serum if you are prone to blemishes and breakouts. Concerned about it all? Use all three for a winning skincare routine.
