ULTIMATE RECOVERY™ INTENSE
An intensely rich, restorative cream for dry, compromised and post-treatment skin. Deeply hydrating and comforting, it creates a protective barrier to shield skin from everyday irritants while keeping moisture locked in tight. The innovative formula harnesses the power of perfluorodecalin to infuse the skin with oxygen for a revitalised, healthy complexion. Developed to minimise the downtime associated with aesthetic treatments, it works in synergy with the skin’s natural reparative process to leave the skin visibly restored. beta-glucan and arnica join forces to calm and comfort even the most sensitive of skin types. Meanwhile silk serica enhances the skin’s regnerative cycles to support a rapid recovery. Intensely soothing and nourishing, the ultra-rich moisturiser gently reduces redness, soothes irritation and calms discomfort for a nourished, restored complexion.
After cleansing in the morning and evening, apply a small amount of Ultimate Recovery Intense where necessary. Leave to absorb before applying sunscreen. Use more often if required.
Designed specifically for compromised and post-treatment skin, this ultra-rich cream works to provide all-day moisture and comfort. Perfect for those with very dry skin and for use after aesthetic procedures such as chemical peels, skin needling, lasers and microdermabrasion. Its intelligent formulation creates a protective barrier on the skin’s surface to keep hydration locked in tight while shielding against everyday irritants so that skin can repair and regenerate quickly. The gentle formula leaves skin looking nourished and healthy looking.

How it works
Post-treatment or compromised skin is exceptionally delicate and needs special attention. Damaged skin often has an impaired natural barrier. This means it is unable to defend against the environment and can lose hydration quickly. Ultimate Recovery Intense combines repairing actives to help restore weakened skin barriers. Perfluorodecalin helps to increase the levels of oxygen in the skin, which are vital for promoting skin’s natural healing capabilities. beta-Glucan comforts inflamed, sore skin by bringing down redness, while arnica helps to stimulate the immune system to ease bruising and condition the skin. Silk serica stimulates the renewal cycle of the skin to help restore its natural barrier against impurities. Meanwhile, Ultimate Recovery Intense restores hydration levels to provide the ideal moisture environment for healing.
Perfluorodecalin – By enhancing the levels of oxygen in the skin, perfluorodecalin can promote the healing capabilities of damaged complexions.
beta-Glucan – A natural extract derived from oats, beta-glucan enhances the skin’s ability to repair itself while providing immediate comfort to inflamed skin.
Arnica – A naturally derived flower extract, arnica harnesses superior anti-bruising power, to calm even the most sensitive of skin.
Silk Serica – Derived from pure and natural silk, serica enhances the skin’s natural regenerative cycle to encourage complexion renewal.
