I’m constantly being asked to highlight vegan skincare brands. I spotted this fantastic new skincare brand launch which is one to keep your eye on for the future. Sönd debuts in the UK market this winter after three years in development with a team of German scientists and backed by independent research. The new anti-ageing skincare range was specifically created for sensitive and dermatitis-prone skin. The star of their show is: silica. From a beauty perspective, silica makes skin ‘glow’. Collagen consists largely of silica and as we age, the supply of silica in our bodies is exhausted and in turn, reduces collagen production.
Silicon is the second most common element on the planet after oxygen and is most commonly found in nature as quartz (also known as silica). Naturally present in our bodies when we are born, there is no substitute for the essential role silica plays and it is an important therapeutic substance that maintains our overall health
The team of scientists at Sönd have been researching the silica at the heart of the brand for over 20 years and have developed a highly bioavailable form of silica. Our products, which contain this silica, are clinically proven to slow the signs of ageing, while actively soothing and healing the most sensitive of skins. Sönd products are achieving outstanding results in independent clinical studies.* Independent tests on 30 individuals, 35-64 years of age, over a period of 28 days. Each subject applied the product twice a day. *Derma Consult Concept GmbH.
The Sönd skincare collection consists of 4 individual products; Energising Mineral Supplements, Hydrating Face Spray, Revitalising Face Serum and Replenishing Face Oil used in combination to treat the issues of dry skin, eczema, and psoriasis. Each product features the most essential ingredients to deliver silica efficiently to the skin, so as to minimise potential irritations. The products are paraben free and have as few ingredients as possible.
So why is silica essential to skin health? Sönd uses a dual approach to ensure that the delivery of silica, in its pure mineral form, is as effective as possible. Due to its ability to form stable bonds with oxygen, silica creates bonds between protein molecules, which are responsible for the skin’s natural ability to retain water, critical for skin repair and skin renewal. Silica boosts hydration in the skin, is a natural anti-inflammatory and increases the elasticity of blood vessels; improving the delivery of oxygen and essential nutrients to the skin’s cells.
The vegan friendly brand produces a range of anti-ageing products for men and women and is ideal for those suffering from sensitive skin, dermatitis or eczema prone skin. Their hero ingredient Silica, is included in all their products is proven to make the skin glow and is vital to skin health. Collagen consists largely of silica and as we age, the supply of silica in our bodies is exhausted and in turn, reduces collagen production. I’ve attached the press release with more information on their range of brilliant products!
The Hydrating Face Spray in particular is considered a MUA essential, as it preps and sooths the skin providing a lightweight and refreshing moisture boost that’s refreshing and gentle on the skin. A gentle water based infusion of silica that’s quick to apply, it’s a simple, everyday essential for healthier skin.
They also have Energising Mineral Silica Supplements which help you embrace glowing, healthy skin. Formulated to replenish your skin with collagen forming silica, and to improve the overall health, function and appearance of your skin. The supplements contain silica for collagen production and the antioxidant vitamin E for the protection of cells from free radicals and oxidative stress.
