Our beloved, ultra-light Fullmoon Serum is entering a new phase and is now better than ever! Graydon, our founder and resident Skin Chef, saw an opportunity to improve upon our best-seller and add two incredible new ingredients. Please join us in welcoming Supermoon Serum to the Graydon Skincare lineup! This serum is now ‘SUPER-fied’ with the multifunctional benefits you know and love, plus more!
Meet your new skincare bestie, Supermoon Serum:
1. Double the bio-retinol for smoother, firmer skin.
The Fullmoon Serum contains dew bean, a retinol alternative that offers similar benefits of vitamin A, without the adverse effects. We’ve added an additional bio-retinol alternative to Supermoon Serum, called bakuchi (psoralea corylifolia), which acts as a potent antioxidant to help protect against fine lines and damage. It also helps to stimulate collagen and elastin for smooth, firm skin. Unlike retinol, which can be pro-inflammatory if not used correctly, bakuchi extract is anti-inflammatory and can help calm skin.
2. Extra hydration with mineral-rich maple sap water
We love using local ingredients and what’s more Canadian than maple! Maple sap water is incredibly hydrating, making it the perfect addition to the Supermoon Serum. We chose to use maple sap as the primary ingredient, rather than water, because it offers many other benefits. It’s mineral-rich, soothing for redness, and keeps skin hydrated with amino acids. It also pairs perfectly with senna-derived hyaluronic acid, which is a staple in the Fullmoon Serum, and now in Supermoon Serum.
3. Multifunctional benefits
Skinamalism is here to stay, and for good reason! Who has time for a twelve step skincare routine? We certainly don’t. That’s why we created the Supermoon Serum as a multifunctional water serum to support the skin on many levels. There’s no need to use a separate anti-oxidant, hydration, peptide serum or retinol – the Supermoon Serum is literally a buffet for your skin! Malachite and moringa help defend against environmental stressors, peptide-rich hibiscus extract plumps skin, bakuchi and dew bean smooths, and senna and maple sap water hydrate. We could go on, but it’s best to try it for yourself!
This serum is now ‘SUPER-fied’ with the multifunctional benefits you know and love, plus more!
4. Ideal for all skin types
When we say all skin types can benefit from Supermoon Serum, we really mean it! This light-weight serum is dermatologist and clinically tested, oil-free, contains no synthetic fragrances or irritating essential oils, and is designed to support all skin no matter your age or stage. Just like Fullmoon Serum, the aroma of Supermoon Serum comes from the wonderful, natural aromatic fruit extracts and blue tansy.
We often get asked whether retinol alternatives, like dew bean and bakuchi, pose the same risks for sensitive skin, sun exposure, pregnancy and breastfeeding; unlike retinol, there are no known contraindications for these botanically derived ingredients, but we always recommend consulting your doctor with any questions. Regardless, when using a new product, always patch test, particularly if you have sensitive skin.
5. Versatile for any season
There’s no need to change products with the time of day or season when using Supermoon Serum. Its lightweight consistency makes it extremely versatile to layer under products, with no piling or stickiness. In the summer, Supermoon Serum is an ideal skin protector, defending against UV damage and pollution with potent antioxidant properties. It can also keep thirsty skin at bay when layered with a moisturizer, or used alone under sunscreen. In the winter, Supermoon Serum acts as an ideal base to layer under moisturizer, followed by an oil to keep skin healthy and happy in the coldest weather.
