VSSS Background

WHAT ARE ADAPTOGENS?

In traditional medicine practices across the world, certain plants are used to treat fatigue and stress, which impact the skin. These plants are known as adaptogenic botanicals which produce naturally occurring molecules called adaptogens. Adaptogens can help skin to defend itself against skin-aging stressors and maintain its health and balance.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF ADAPTOGENS
FOR THE SKIN?

Your skin is exposed to internal and external skin-aging stressors such as pollutants, UV rays and lack of sleep every day. These stressors weaken skin and compromise your skin’s ability to defend itself, accelerating signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, and dull or sallow skin. Adaptogens are activated when your skin is exposed to these stressors and they work by fighting the effects of the stressors so that your skin returns to a healthy and youthful state.

The three adaptogens that the Kiehl’s Vital Skin-Strengthening Super Serum uses are the Schisandra berry, Holy basil and Red ginseng root, forming the Adaptogenic Herbal Complex.

The best anti-aging face serums prevent while they treat, giving you strong and healthy skin. When the 3 adaptogens in the Vital Skin-Strengthening Super Serum are combined together as the adaptogenic herbal complex, it provides powerful synergistic benefits that defend your skin from skin-aging stressors to restore healthy skin behavior for improved texture and radiance.

The Schisandra berry is native to the forests of Northern China and the Russian Far East. This powerful herb has long been used in traditional Chinese medicine because of its anti-aging and balancing properties. Kiehl’s anti-stress schisandra berry is sourced in China, and it works to alert skin to environmental stressors and signal it to respond.

Our anti-pollution Holy basil is sourced from India. When your skin is exposed to everyday environmental aggressors, this ingredient neutralises their negative effects on the skin.

Red ginseng root is one of the most popular natural remedies and is highly valued in traditional Chinese medicine because it improves overall health. Our anti-fatigue red ginseng root is sourced from Korea and supports skin cell turnover, increasing the resurfacing of skin cells for a more energised and youthful appearance.
