How does ELLA i SKiN differ from mainstream drug store brands?

ELLA i SKiN was developed to find the sweet spot between organic beauty and effectiveness of medical grade skincare. ELLA i SKiN provides the best of both worlds, with concentrations of pure, active nutrients combined with the powerful concentrations of medical-like ingredients to deliver a powerhouse of skincare products.


Research has shown that medical-like ingredients should be used to optimize skincare benefits. These key ingredients have been heavily scrutinized to support effectiveness claims. Measures have been taken so products can penetrate the deeper level of our skin & not just sit on the surface. Medical-like products are not generally offered in drug stores. and are usually very costly. Unfortunately, they also often contain heavy perfumes and toxic fillers. 

Drug store brands can often keep their cost down by using synthetic fillers and harmful emollients. Take a peek at the labels of skincare products that you have purchased from drug stores. It might surprise… and scare you!

ELLA i SKiN does not use harmful fillers or fragrances in products. We only use the most effective ingredients that directly benefit skin, such as extracts, vitamins and stem cells. A little goes a long way so you can use less, which is great for your pocketbook!

Any tips for switching from conventional skincare products?

Everyone has favourite products and some they do not want to part with. That’s okay, do what you can. Start slow and read labels. Once you start noticing the amazing results & getting compliments on your skin from adding ELLA i SKiN to your skincare regime the choices will become easier. It will become clear to you when you see how your body & skin respond to clean ingredients.

Are ELLA i SKiN products suitable for sensitive skin types?

ELLA i SKiN created skincare products with sensitive skin in mind. However, it is important to get to know your skin and understand what triggers the sensitivity. The more familiar you become with your skin’s reaction to different ingredients, the better you will be at selecting skincare products that work.

ELLA i SKiN has listed all ingredients on each product label so you know what ingredients are being used.

Specific to sensitive skin:

DAILY FIX is infused with powerful blend of sea-buckthorn and sunflower to help reduce redness and calm skin.

** Always check with your dermatologist before using any new ingredients on your skin.

What is the difference between Dry Skin and Dehydrated Skin?

Dry skin is a skin type. Dehydrated skin is a skin condition.

Dry skin is a lack of oils and is a permanent skin type you are born with. There are five skin types: normal, oily, dry, combination and sensitive.

Dry skin absorbs moisturizers fairly quickly. Skin generally feels dry and appears flaky, irritated and sometimes leathery. Skin can also tend to be dry on scalp and hands.

Avoid foaming cleansers and other products that might strip skin’s natural oils.

Best ingredients for dry skin: Shea butter, plant butters, Jojoba oil, hyaluronic acid

Might we suggest:

Beauty Sleep Night Repair Moisturizer

Daily Fix Sea-buckthorn Serum

A-Elixir Antioxidant Serum

Choco Luv Detoxifying Dark Chocolate Mousse Mask

 

Dehydrated skin is a lack of water. Skin is experiencing moisture loss due to the lack of water in the top layer of skin, the stratum corneum. Generally, this is a temporary condition due to factors like the environment, season changes and diet.  Skin appears flat and lifeless, feels tight and itchy. Dehydrated skin can often experience breakouts.

Making healthy lifestyle choices, wearing sun protection and using appropriate skincare products can reduce skin dehydration.

Best ingredients for dehydrated skin: Hyaluronic acid, Glycerin, Aloe, Lactic Acid

Might we suggest:

HA Quench Hyaluronic Acid Serum

Canadian Maple Ageless Cream

Miracle Plumper Peptide Serum

If my skin is oily why is dehydrated?

Oily or acne-prone skin can sometimes suffer from dehydration due to washing face too often and/or using harsh acne products which tend to irritate and strip skin of moisture.

Dehydrated & Oily skin Connection

When skin becomes dehydrated it creates more sebum which leads to acne breakouts. By applying more drying skincare products your skin becomes more dehydrated and the cycle continues.

Using the correct products is essential for dehydrated skin to drastically change skin so it is less oily. Use high quality, gentle products can nourish and rebalance skin. It’s important to keep skin balanced to keep blemishes at bay.

Are ELLA i SKiN’s organic skin products safe to use during pregnancy?

Many use our USDA organic certified products while pregnant but it is always best to consult with your doctor.

How do I perform a patch test?

It is important to do a patch test before using any topical product. To do this, rub a dime-sized amount on to the inside of your forearm. If you don’t experience any irritation or inflammation within 24 hours, it should be safe to use elsewhere.

*It is recommended to perform a patch test before using any new topical product.
