Can I use it every day?

Yes, Mx is gentle enough for everyday use on all skin types, giving significant results.

How do the ingredients work?

Mx Skincare uses the most advanced peptides available.  These are scientifically proven to act as messengers to the skin cells telling them to make more collagen. This greatly improves wrinkles and firmness.

Vitamins A, C and Niacinamide in the products, as with the Peptides, are the latest and most advanced scientifically.

Along with Hyaluronic Acid and powerful anti-oxidants Mx Skincare is formulated to have maximum delivery into the lower layers of the skin.

This combination of powerful anti-oxidants fights the free radicals damaging our collagen which cause wrinkles, and lack of firmness.

How are the products packaged?

Mx actives are contained in airless packaging to protect against oxidation and deterioration.

Is Mx Skincare tested on animals?

Mx products are cruelty free and contain no animal derivatives, parabens, lanolin or SLC’s.

Is there fragrance in the products?

Mx Skincare has been meticulously formulated with years of research and experience behind it.

Mx generally does not use fragrance with products containing actives as this can cause reactions. Above all we respect the integrity of the skin.

There is a hint of pure essential oil of Rose Absolute in the Cosmeceutical Facial Oil, a refreshing touch of grapefruit in the Cream Cleanser and a hint of fragrance in the Eye Cream.

Do the products work as well on black skin?

Melanin rich skin has its own set of unique challenges — hyper pigmentation [uneven skin tone] and over active sebaceous glands. Black skin has increased melanin production, which protects it better against the damaging rays from the sun. This increase in melanin also keeps one looking younger longer!

It is still very important to use a sunscreen daily as melanoma is still a serious danger. Black skin is most susceptible to hyper pigmentation. The best way to treat this is with Mx Purity Exfoliate + This helps to de-clog and minimise pores and clear hyper pigmentation.

Firming Serum Vitamin C+ will greatly help to even the skin tone, whilst protecting the skin barrier.

What Mx Products would you specifically recommend for black skin?

Cosmeceutical Foaming Cleanser +

Purity Exfoliate +

Firming Serum Vitamin C +

Renewal Serum Vitamin A + (use at night only)

Moisture Ceremides +  (dry skin)

Illuminating Serum Peptides + (normal – oily skin)
