Product details

Our Alter-Care serum is an essential concentrate that complements skin to lastingly support its key functions of regeneration & protection. Designed as a true skin essential, the Alter-Care serum performs on face, neck, décolleté and even on the eye area - known to be the most delicate part of the face. The formula is so nourishing that, in most cases, you won’t need to wear a cream on top.

Harnessing a wealth of active ingredients, rich in essential nutrients, our serum deeply nourishes and visibly renews skin while reinforcing its barrier function. Skin instantly feels hydrated and revitalised. After 4 weeks, wrinkles and dark circles are visibly reduced, skin appears refined, radiant, firmer, plumper and strengthened.

*based on the ISO 16128 standard

Application details

Apply two to three pumps on to your face, neck, décolleté and eye contour, each morning and night. Gently massaging into skin until it is absorbed.

Packaging

Our Alter-Care Serum is housed in eco-friendly, recyclable packaging. Each product has been created with an exclusive refill system, to lower our impact as much as we can. This is central to our commitment of finding another way to innovate in harmony with nature. The Alter-Care Serum is:

Refillable

The use of our exclusive, recyclable refill system reduces our impact on the environment. When used with the assembled product, your first refill purchase lowers the product's impact on climate change by a third. Using a second refill lowers impact by half, and, when a refill purchase is used on its own the impact on climate change is two thirds lower.**

Responsibly designed

We have worked with an external third-party eco-design partner to minimise our impact whilst lowering the carbon footprint of our products by maximising the use of sea-freight for transcontinental transportation.

Recyclable*

Our refill is eco-designed, recyclable and made of recyclable materials that are obtained, using the mass balance principle, from certified renewable sources, linked mainly to wood waste.

**Impact reduction is calculated by buying the refill instead of the full assembled product.
*This packaging may not be recyclable in your area. Check with your town's local guidelines.
