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 Pigment Correction Gel 30ml
Age or liver spots are an inevitable side effect of the ageing process. They are caused by melanin or Lipofuscin synthesis in the skin which is made worse by exposure to UV light. The production of this pigment is controlled by an enzyme in the skin called Tyrosinase.
For menopausal skin we have created a natural, safe and effective treatment that both corrects the tone of the skin, reduces existing pigment spots and helps protect against future melanin creation.
Stratum C Pigment Correction Gel is a unique combination of several powerful active but natural ingredients. Vitamin C is combined with natural Bellis Perennis Extract which have been shown in clinical trials to reduce the production of Tyrosinase by 50%. Additionally an extract of olive leaves called Oleuropin is included which has been proven to both prevent the formation of Lipofuscin and to reduce the appearance of existing age spots.
Skin is thinner and more sensitive during menopause so these treatments have been combined with high quality Hyaluronic Acid (the same that is used in Stratum C Repair Serum) to give moisture and hydration deep into the dermis. None of our products contain artificial colours, fragrances, parabens, phallates, EDTA or M.I to gently protect your skin.
The gel can be used 3 times a day on the face or hands for optimum effect. Visible changes should be seen within one month. The product should be used with a sunscreen minimum of SPF30 in order to help prevent further spots.

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.
