As conversations around being kinder to ourselves and our planet increase, an award-winning cosmeceuticals brand that focuses on just that has arrived in Irish pharmacies.
It’s an interesting offering, teaming serious natural skincare credentials with patented ingredients and has a devoted following in its native France.
Novexpert was founded by Cyrille Telinge 11 years ago although the team behind the brand had been working for almost 20 years in an independent research laboratory.
The products are Eco Certified, hypoallergenic, vegan, cruelty free and biodegradable. The key ingredient used is vegetable-based Inca inchi oil which contains omega 3,6,9 and Vitamins A and E. It also has a patented ingredient, novaxyline, which contains brown algae to protect from free radicals and oxidative stress. With ranges targeted at brightening, hydrating and de-sensitising if you're looking to clean up your skincare routine a little it could be worth investigating.
