When it comes to skin ageing, our biggest enemy is ultra violet radiation (sunlight). Studies prove it to be responsible for up to 90% of the visible signs of ageing. And here in New Zealand and Australia, we have the worst UV rays in the world. This is why we created Solar Serum®.
Solar Serum® contains Lycocelle® our own unique proprietary blend of lycopene from tomatoes, rosehip and cucumber. With clinically significant levels of lycopene, this blend helps to reduce sun damage, redness and pigmentation. It can also protect collagen and enhance natural immunity to UV radiation.

Solar Serum® contains jojoba oil. So if it’s left in a cold place this can start to solidify slightly – much like you might have noticed with bottles of olive oil on the supermarket shelf. This is completely normal and does not change the composition or the effectiveness of the serum. The formulation of this serum is 100% natural – so we don’t put in any agents to keep it liquid at low temperatures and this is just a side effect. If you just pop the bottle in a bowl of warm water it will soon go back to its normal consistency.
- Oily/acne prone skin: Linoleic acid reduces clogged pores, polyphenols supports reducing inflammation caused by acne
- Dry skin: Rich in omega 6 and omega 3 essential fatty acids, powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant action.
Active Ingredients Explained
Lycocelle®: Our unique, patented blend of lycopene, rosehip and cucumber.
Lycopene: Extracted by cold process from tomato seeds. As a potent antioxidant, lycopene efficiently blocks the damaging effects of free radical scavengers and protects the skin cells exposed to UVB. Contains Omega 3 and 6 at the exact ratio needed by the human cells. This delivers anti- inflammatory effects to the skin and also prevents dryness. At over 3%, Lycocelle® reveals a strong activity to protect the cells against UVB radiation.
Rosehip Seed Oil: A delicate oil packed with nutrients, vitamins and essential fatty acids to hydrate and nourish sensitive skin.
Cucumber Seed Oil: Provides hydrating and soothing skin care benefits. Rich in plant nutrients including vitamins, polyphenols, polysaccharides, and minerals.
Meadowfoam: A natural, stable oil that is very close in composition to natural human sebum, so it is very easily absorbed. Locks in moisture. Contains very high levels of antioxidants.
Grapeseed Oil: Very high levels of Vitamins C, D & E. Supports skin health for all skin types.
Jojoba: Fast absorbing, light oil derived from the jojoba plant seed. Full of antioxidants and nutrients to restore sensitive skin.
Raspberry: Superior antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Rich in Vitamin E. Promotes skin healing and optimal skin health.
