Most people in the modern world are ageing at an unnatural rate, meaning that your exposome (lifestyle and environmental factors), are accelerating skin ageing beyond what your DNA alone would dictate.

Pioneering research shows that a chronically unhealthy exposome leads to premature wrinkles, loss of elasticity and uneven skin tone. To help combat this, Dermalogica has launched a ground-breaking dual-phase serum; the AGE Smart® Phyto-Nature Firming Serum, which reawakens and safeguards the nature of younger-looking skin to reduce the appearance of premature skin ageing.

The Phyto-Nature Firming Serum contains a firming phase and a lifting phase, each held in their own seperate chamber to preserve product efficacy. It works instantly and over time to firm, lift and revitalise the look of prematurely-ageing skin.

The firming phase: Sapphire-bound biomimetic peptides help firm skin and reinforce skin defences against your exposome. The Sapphire helps shield the peptides and increase their bioavailability as they work to mimic natural qualities of skin that decline with exposome-driven ageing.

The lifting phase: Powered by modern plant-based technology and ancient botanical wisdom, this botanical pharmacopeia uses some of the world’s most potent antioxidants, including:

  • Amazonian Camu Camu, sourced sustainably from Peru, helps prolong radiance. Often called the “youth berry,” this superfruit contains 60 times more Vitamin C than an orange and has been wild-harvested by indigenous tribes for more than 700 years to maintain health and longevity.
  • Moroccan Rockrose Extract, derived from the incredibly-resilient plant that has the ability to germinate even after burning, helps neutralise skin-damageing free radicals.
  • Caffeic Acid from Madagascar Green Coffee Bean, a phyto-active that works with skin’s microbiome, helps revitalise skin and decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Dermalogica’s Phyto-Nature Firming Serum comes in a 40 mL bottle with the retail price of $290. Available from authorised Dermalogica skin centres, department stores, Life Pharmacies and online at, from August 30th 2019.
