The new Sorbet Even Affect range of skincare products is aimed at diminishing dark spots, refining skin texture and giving you a more luminous complexion.
It’s time to get Even (Affect)
Say goodbye to uneven skin tone and rid your skin of dark spots and patches caused primarily by sun damage, ageing and hormones with the new Sorbet Even Affect range.
Called hyperpigmentation, dark patches occur when your body processes too much melanin, usually resulting in spots, freckles or discoloured areas of skin. This often happens during pregnancy, as a woman’s body produces a higher level of oestrogen, which triggers a boost in melanin production.
While hyperpigmentation is usually harmless, it can be of cosmetic concern, especially when visible on prominent areas such as the décolletage or face.
“If you’re concerned about your skin pigmentation, you are not alone,” says Candice Thurston, Marketing Executive for the Sorbet Group. “Despite it being completely normal, millions of people around the world seek help to achieve luminous, even-toned skin they desire. Sorbet wants to help our customers feel more confident in their own skin.”
Thurston says that Sorbet’s Even Affect skincare range was created in response to requests from customers. “It is important for us to remain ahead of the curve when it comes to offering innovative products and so we have stepped up to help our clients solve their beauty concerns,” she says.
Ingredients that care for your skin
Sorbet’s Even Affect skincare range is enriched with Arbutin, a topical skin iluminator and derivative of hydroquinone, which is gentle enough to be used on sensitive or acne-prone skin – however, it’s always recommended to do a skin-patch test before using a new product, especially if you suffer from eczema. Arbutin is said to suppress melanin activity and also has antioxidant properties to help brighten skin by reducing oxidative stress.
Skincare experts have hailed vitamin C as the ‘Holy Grail’ of skincare products, and when it is combined with vitamin E, it is “more effective in preventing photodamage than either vitamin alone,” according to researchers at Oregon State University’s Linus Pauling Institute.
“Adding both vitamin C and E to your beauty routine means you’re helping your skin fight damage from free radicals,” says Tallia Ficalbi-Hobbs, Technical Product Manager.
Stretch your beauty budget
“At Sorbet we pride ourselves on offering PROFESSIONAL Salon-quality products at affordable prices, to help you make your skincare budget last longer,” Thurston says. With this in mind, each product retails below the R200 mark. All products are dermatologically approved, and available from Sorbet salons and Clicks stores nationwide.
