Pure, powerful ingredients courtesy of 7th Heaven

February 13, 2023

Face mask experts since 1985, 7th Heaven are back with a trio of masks that will take you well on your way to addressing your skincare concerns.

So prevalent are hyaluronic acid, retinol and vitamin C in modern skincare that it’s easy for people to presume blanket awareness around these hallowed ingredients. Many people feel left behind.

And we think it's time to level the playing field.

Over the past few years, the trio have become such skincare staples that coming across a product without one of the three is rare.

Sure, a new wunderkind skincare ingredient is seemingly discovered every few months, and pretty soon, it’s everywhere—in your masks, serums, foot creams, insert-step-in-your-beauty-routine-here. But at the end of the day, only a handful of ingredients have stood the test of time and truly become essential. 

We get more questions about these timeless ingredients than any others, often from people not knowing how and where they should fit into their routines (and they definitely should!). If you want to improve your skin, you need to know ingredients like these.

There is beauty in simplicity and simplicity in our brand-new NUTRIACTIVE range.

Combine our determination to eliminate cosmetic confusion with simplifying skincare through multifunctional, high-performance products and, hey-presto, you can now bolster skin preservation and health with NUTRIACTIVE.

People are realising they don’t need to strip and potentially irritate their precious skin with harsh actives to treat it and reap skin health benefits.

Our NUTRIACTIVE range moves beyond branding or the recommendations of influencers to discover the remedies that solve skin concerns - at an affordable and accessible price point.

Queen bee ingredient, hyaluronic acid (HA), is pretty well-known these days but remains one of the most popular ingredients for deeply hydrating skin. It's famously known for holding 1,000 times its weight in water, making it a moisture magnet to tackle skin dehydration. Despite having acid in the name (sounds scary), it's super gentle on the skin. It is a natural component abundant in healthy skin, so you're essentially topping up your moisture levels by using topical serums and moisturisers containing the ingredient.

Your skin naturally produces hyaluronic, but production slows down significantly in your thirties. Applying a serum or moisturiser, including HA daily, will help your skin retain more moisture and allow for soft, smooth, hydrated and healthy-looking skin.

The beauty of our 7th Haven Hyaluronic Acid Face Mask is that it doesn't have any fine print. It benefits any skin type at any age. And the truth is that everyone looks great with hydrated skin.

Retinol is a form of Vitamin A that promotes skin renewal and enhances collagen production (which starts to decline in your 30s). As well as lessening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, retinol can reverse some side effects of sun damage.

Its powerful antioxidant properties help to protect cell membranes from free radical damage, stimulate skin cell renewal, boost collagen production and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in visibly younger-looking skin. Our 7th Heaven Retinol capsule sheet mask a whole host of skin concerns. It really does everything - from clearing acne to smoothing texture, eliminating dullness and minimising pores, and tackling aging concerns.

Retinol thickens your skin by increasing the production of glycosaminoglycans to keep the skin firm, taut, and smooth. We were talking about it in 1975, and we’re still talking about it now because it works. It works best as prevention, so don’t wait until wrinkles and dark spots occur to start using it.

Dermatologists also wax lyrical about vitamin C; alongside retinol and SPF, its part of the skincare holy trinity. According to the top experts, if you're armed with all three and use them correctly, you're guaranteed brighter, smoother, healthier skin.

Vitamin C is best known for shielding against the visible impacts of environmental stressors, including free radicals that induce tissue damage. Vitamin C binds and neutralises harmful molecules, which can damage the skin, and aids in collagen production.

Then there's the fact that our 7th Heaven Vitamin C face mask evens out skin tone by blocking tyrosinase, an enzyme that can trigger pigmentation – not to mention its overall power to brighten your complexion for a lit-from-within glow.

While we will be eternally envious of those who use ‘just soap’ to achieve clear, glowing skin, achieving a healthy complexion takes a bit more work for most of us. Our NUTRIACTIVE masks will take you well on your way to addressing your concerns with minimum fuss.

Sheet masks use the material to trap active ingredients on the skin, forcing it to lock in the moisture and receive all the benefits. So, whether you want to rebalance and restore, moisturise and brighten, or smooth and firm, these capsule sheet masks have the restoration of your skin's balance front of mind.

"Human skin has 1 billion microbes per square centimetre, and that natural bacterium maintains the skin's immunity and prevents pathogenic growths," said 7th Heaven's Head of Labs, David English.

"The amino acids promote cellular repair, increase skin moisture, and stimulate collagen production; perfect for solving plenty of common skincare woes."
