Why you should get your skincare from Glaciers

Thirty years ago explorers set out to the Antarctic to harvest bacteria from the base of glaciers. They were keen to investigate how it survived in such harsh climates and what the benefit could be if applied to humans.

While they were there they discovered a marine glycoprotein that has not only cryoprotective properties but also a restructuring effect that protects against dryness. When applied to skin it was shown to encourage skin regeneration, defend against environmental damage (esp extreme cold) and hydrate the skin. Perfect for even the most sensitive skin, this vegan friendly and gluten free super ingredient increases collagen synthesis by up to 34% and has the ability to reduce wrinkle depth by an average of 44% in just 30days.

At Proverb we’re thought this was great, after rigorous testing, and formulation, we harnessed the power of this Antarctic glycoprotein in both the Proverb Cleanse and Shave Nutrient Mud and the Proverb Skin Strengthening Serum. Both use this super ingredient to repair, hydrate and fortify the skin. Pretty cool.
