Uteki Serum embodies the wisdom of Japanese empirical insights into time-tested active ingredients, harmoniously united with cutting-edge technology to ensure their utmost efficacy.
This meticulously balanced formula provides your skin with enduring defence against environmental stressors, glycation reactions, and photo and physiological ageing effects.
It has potent hydrating properties, reduces the appearance of wrinkles, elevates skin cell metabolic activity, and culminates in a silky, radiant, and healthy complexion.
Uteki Serum harnesses the potent anti-stress capabilities of two formidable ingredients in its formula: RICE FERMENT FILTRATE (SAKE) and CAMELLIA SINENSIS LEAF EXTRACT. These dynamic ingredients effectively thwart the signs of ageing triggered by UV rays while enhancing skin metabolism, ultimately yielding a radiant and healthy complexion. Additionally, it offers relief for skin redness and sensitivity.
Uteki serum also boasts a proven anti-glycation effect, thanks to including Sakura tree petal extract in its formula. This translates into a reduction in wrinkle formation and a lasting lifting effect.
The dynamic duo of Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) and Hyaluronic Acid collaborates to deliver maximum hydration and illuminate the skin.
Upon application, the serum imparts immediate smoothness, restoring a youthful radiance while providing potent antioxidant and anti-glycation benefits and robust anti-inflammatory properties.
Furthermore, Uteki Serum is fortified with hydrogenated lecithin, which rejuvenates skin nutrition and texture.
Recommended for very dry and sensitive skin, irritated / inflamed skin, skin after heavy peeling treatments or harsh skincare products with acid ingredients.
RICE FERMENT FILTRATE (SAKE)
Sake boasts antioxidants, which protect the complexion against environmental stressors and oxidative damage. It also boasts brightening properties: is rich in enzymes that gently exfoliate the outer layers of skin. Also, the fermentation process produces kojic acid, a famous skin-lightening ingredient for hyperpigmented skin conditions such as melasma and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Benefits: functions as an antioxidant and anti-pollution agent, stabilizes skin microflora, helps in treating acne, and enhances skin texture and appearance
CAMELLIA SINENSIS LEAF EXTRACT
Derived from the tea bush - an evergreen plant of the tea family, this extract blocks the activity of various forms of free radicals. Thus, it prevents signs of ageing such as wrinkles, age spots, the appearance of skin friability, and a decrease in its tone and elasticity.
The unique properties of green tea are due to the high concentration of polyphenols, the activity of which is higher than that of vitamin E. Polyphenols have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects and contribute to the penetration of biologically active substances into the skin.
Benefits: enhances skin microcirculation, diminishes redness, serves as an antioxidant, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory agent, protects against photodamage, provides long-term hydration
PRUNUS LANNESIANA FLOWER EXTRACT (SAKURA)
Sakura flower extract has been used for ages in Japanese skincare. Extracts obtained from SAKURA petals have a clinically proven anti-glycation effect: suppression of AGE production and fibroblast apoptosis caused by AGE (programmed death of cells serving to build tissue), suppression of the melanin production process, maintaining a healthy skin texture.
Benefits: demonstrates anti-glycation properties, stimulates collagen synthesis, diminishes UVB-induced DNA damage, mitigates cell damage, and decelerates ageing-related processes
APHANOTHECE SACRUM EXOPOLYSACCHARIDES (SACRAN)
Sacran is a rare edible freshwater blue-green alga indigenous to Japan. Polysaccharides are little sponges that retain water so they don’t dry out in the water. This explains why it keeps water from evaporating when used on the skin. Apart from sealing moisture, polysaccharides keep it pure and free from unnecessary bacteria.
Benefits: facilitates moisture retention, shields the skin from harmful environmental factors and pollutants, soothes, acts as a prebiotic, creates ideal condition for healthy skin microflora
Soluble collagen, unique in the degree of purification, has a similar amino acid composition to human skin collagen. By enhancing water retention of the skin, it improves skin texture. All layers of the skin become more “plumped”; as a result, the skin becomes smoother, and the number and depth of wrinkles decrease. Skin skeleton and protective functions improve.
Benefits: evens and softens the skin, diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, deeply nourishes and hydrates the skin, promotes cell renewal, and refines skin texture
HYALURONIC ACID (HA)
It is a naturally occurring substance in skin. Is crucial to the moisture and elasticity of our skin. HA penetrates the skin and binds water to skin cells, infusing all layers of the skin with valuable, rejuvenating moisture. Helps reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles retaining moisture to the skin, creating a plumping effect.
Benefits: Promotes moisture retention, enhances intercellular interaction, reduces skin sensitivity, shields against environmental stressors, and restores skin structure
LICORICE ROOT EXTRACT
Is a natural and safe alternative to hydroquinone considered to be the gold-standard brightening ingredient. It inhibits the production of an enzyme needed to produce melanin (pigment) in the skin and removes excess melanin. It is a potent antioxidant, thus has anti-ageing properties and eliminates discoloration. Helps with skin tone evening, spot fading and soothing irritated skin.
Benefits: diminishes inflammation, imparts a brightening effect, mitigates UV-induced pigmentation, improves tone and complexion, regulates sebum production, and minimizes acne outbreaks
ASCORBIC ACID (VIT. C)
Is a water-soluble vitamin found in citrus fruits and many green vegetables. It is famous for its ability to protect the skin from environmental stressors. Is an antioxidant which helps slow down early skin ageing, prevents sun damage, and improves the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots, and acne.
Benefits: demonstrates a powerful antioxidant effect, revitalizes the skin, promotes brightness, stimulates collagen synthesis and tissue repair, and enhances skin tone and complexion
Hydrogenated lecithin has a high concentration of fatty acids, which makes it a good emollient. It helps skin absorb and retain missing fat components, and thus, dry skin recovers quickly, becoming smooth, supple, hydrated and soft. As a result, moisturized skin is strong enough to fight against environmental negative stressors.
Benefits: Enhances moisture retention, aids in skin barrier restoration, facilitates repair of damaged cells, and accelerates the regeneration process
