Since its launch in Spring 2012, the Skin Recovery Formula by San Diego-based, indie brand, My Prime, has had a growing following. And for good reason. Infused with two antioxidant-rich and highly moisturizing botanical oils — Pili and Moringa — from the Philippines, this delicate yet powerful serum addresses some of your most pressing skin woes. Harnessing the power of active botanicals, the Skin Recovery Formula helps brighten and even skin tone, soothe redness and inflammation, and encourage skin firmness and resilience. In just an 8-week, clinical study, approximately 70% of participants showed an improvement in skin tone radiance, reduction in hyperpigmentation and increase in skin firmness.
Besides its efficacy, there are other things to love about the Skin Recovery Formula. The serum is lightweight and easily absorbed in the skin. Next, in formulating the My Prime skin care line, it was of utmost importance to My Prime founder, Tessa Yutadco, to use healthy, effective and responsibly-sourced ingredients. To that end, the key brightening ingredient in this serum is a gentle, preservative-free botanical complex. Yutadco also made sure that all My Prime products are fragrance-free, hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic, so they are suitable for most skin types, including sensitive-skin.
Yutadco, an attorney who left law practice to start My Prime, says, “I wanted to create an honest brand that empowers women and improves lives. For me, this means creating highly effective skin care products that have been clinically tested for safety and efficacy. It also means giving back to my birthplace, the Philippines, by creating economic and social opportunities for the Filipino women and men who cultivate and extract the oils we use in our products.”
Directions: Massage into cleansed skin twice daily. Follow with moisturizer.
