The UK's first skincare range for menopausal skin
Stratum C was developed specifically for menopause and contains 12 times more Matrixyl than high street brands which is proven to double your own collagen production in published clinical studies.
As the aging process accelerates during menopause, the skin changes, which causes fine lines and wrinkles to form. When the skin is less able to retain water, collagen production — which gives skin its thickness and suppleness — decreases rapidly.
Its proprietary ingredients include high levels of active peptides to double collagen production, combat wrinkles and lines, repair dry, itchy and less supple skin and replenish lost vitamins. Chains of amino acids are the building blocks of proteins in the skin, and Stratum C’s active ingredients combine the optimum amount of Matrixyl, wrinkle-reducing pentapeptides, along with four further complex peptides, to hydrate, moisturise and tighten the muscles deep in the lower layers of the skin.
In addition, Stratum C products contain hyaluronic acid, squalane and seaweed extracts to hydrate the skin. This is combined with natural sources of vitamin A and E, derived from apricot kernel and jojoba oils, to replenish the vitamins lost through menopause.
Muscle relaxation – muscles are relaxed helping to reduce stress and tension within the skin.
Collagen production is stimulated – clinical trials have shown up to a 70% increase in the production of collagen, helping to improve elasticity and skin tone.
Increased moisture content – Hyaluronic Acid holds 1000 times its own weight in water making ti the perfect ingredient to help increase moisture content within the skin.
Smooth, supple skin – Key ingredients including Jojoba Oil and Apricot Oil leave the skin feeling soft, smooth and much more supple once more.
Stratum C Menopause Protect Cream 50ml
Stratum C Menopause Protect Cream was developed following research at a leading UK University. The discovery showed that a special combination and concentration of peptides caused the body's own cells to nearly double their own rate of collagen production.
In addition to the collagen stimulating peptides, Stratum C was formulated to contain Matrixyl, Hyaluronic Acid and Squalane to hydrate and moisturise the skin into the lower levels of the dermis.
Finally to combat existing wrinkles we included a muscle tightening ingredient that has been shown in clinical trials to reduce existing deep wrinkles by 45% in just one month.
The base moisturiser in Stratum C is based on natural luxurious products well known to the beauty industry including Jojoba Oil, and Apricot Kernel Oil, the latter being a good source of Vitamin A and E which are also lost during menopause.

All our products are paraben, EDTA, DEA, BHA, BHT, phthalate, formaldehyde and MI free using only the gentlest of preservatives, acknowledging the fact that skin is thinner and more sensitive during the menopause. We do not use synthetic perfumes or colours in any of our products. This means that many of your products have to be used within 6 months of opening (rather than the usual 12) which is a small compromise for healthy skin.
