ZERO WASTE SAMPLE SET – CARE FOR YOUR SKIN & THE PLANET

Skincare samples always come in sachets that can’t biodegrade, as they have laminate layers to protect water-based emulsions or plastic pots. Your skin gets to try a product for a few days and the planet gets to deal with the packaging for the next 500 years. At Proverb we believe this needed to stop. As far as we are aware, we are the first brand to find a way to put skincare samples into paper that will home compost leaving no soil toxicity.

WINNING = NOT WASTING TIME AND MONEY

Multiple full bottles sitting on a shelf in your bathroom never being used is not the aim here and never should be! All skins are different and like different products. As skincare experts, we want you to try Proverb with no barriers, so you can see if they work for you. Hence our skincare samples are free of charge, you just have to pay the shipping.

PROVERB 4 X 4 X 4

At Proverb, we know you’re busy. That’s why we’ve created a simple 4x4x4 plan for you to follow in your skin care routine. 4 minutes for your routine, 4 uses in every Proverb bottle. Your sample set has a 4-step program for you to try. Yes, we like the number 4!

DESIGNED FOR PEOPLE WHO TAKE THEIR HEALTH AND PERFORMANCE SERIOUSLY

We take the understanding and efficacy of elite SPORTS NUTRITION and apply it to your skin. Committing to understanding ingredients in skincare, like you do - your food will deliver results for your skin and help solve your skin concerns. Proverb draws the clear link between clean eating, health, sport, your life approach and your skincare.

Natural & organic? Entirely natural with organic ingredients. Most brands would happily say 100%. Proverb means truth. All emulsions made in the UK have to have a preservative. We use the organic certification allowed preservative dehydroacetic acid. Although you are allowed to label it natural it isn’t true. There is 0.6% in the bottle as legally required.

Our dedication to natural & organic Greenwashing brands pretending to be natural, is rife and only getting worse. We will only ever tell you the truth about our ingredients, the sources and which elements are natural, organic or the legally required preservatives. We formulate with painstaking dedication to this mantra for your health but also as it ensures the elite grown version of each ingredient.

In vitro & in vivo lab proven actives? Yes, we have selected many active ingredients with strong in vitro and in vivo testing results for the individual ingredients. Combining this with researching the source, origins and ethics of each ingredient.

‘Clean’ brands tend to be younger and newer to market and thus don’t usually invest the large amount of funds needed to clinically trial products to prove results in an independent lab. Not us; we are firmly committed to do this as the clean, organic and natural sector has to prove it works. As we grow the brand, we will grow the investment into clinical testing as a priority but below are our test results so far!

Dermatological testing All Proverb skincare has been successfully Dermatologically tested.

Full formula clinical in vivo trials In a controlled study Oil Balance Pro Moisturiser has been clinically proven to moisturise.* In a controlled study Oil Balance Pro Moisturiser outperformed the leading male skincare brand’s daily moisturiser.* Controlled tests independently carried out by Cutest Systems Ltd, Cardiff.

*This level of testing at launch from a young, new brand is unheard of in the organic and natural sector.

Lab tests on individual ingredients:

OIL BALANCE PRO MOISTURISER

In a clinical trial the combined ingredient of acai, andiroba and copaiba balsam has shown a 65% reduction in oil production after 6 weeks and a 72% reduction in the number of blackheads after 8 weeks.

STRENGTHENING SKIN SERUM

Freeze-dried acai berry powder has the highest ORAC value (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) of any other fruit/berry per 100g serving.

Blue Agaeve: the network of Polysaccharides woven over the skin by Agaeve has an appreciable lifting and filling performance on wrinkles. In 5 minutes, wrinkle reduction can be objectively measurable with a noticeable optical effect.

CLEANSE & SHAVE NUTRIENT MUD


Amino Acids and Peptide Complex from coconuts – In Vitro tests showed 32% reduction in the number of wrinkles when used 2 daily over a 42 day period.

SKIN DEFINITION FACIAL SCRUB

Superfood avocado & coconut: blended ground coconut shell to remove dead skin cells and invigorate your skin aiding skin cell regeneration. alongside blitzed avocado stones, the powerhouse of this antioxidant-rich ingredient and a super use of something normally just thrown in the bin. Time to wake up your face.

Stage one with the Nutri Mud is to get used to it as it is such a different texture to most face wash and cleansers! We are always truthful and it takes an open mind which once people conquer they tell us they would never go back! It helps to not use too much in this phase and ensure you use some water with it.

Your skin should immediately look calmer and more of an even colour tone once you have used the Cleanse and Shave Nutrient Mud.

The serum will absorb and dry quickly, it should never feel sticky and leaves a matte feel. If it is sticky then you are applying too much.

Your face will start to feel like you have had a mini face lift and we would expect it to look visibly brighter and smoother. Even with application one you can sometimes see a reduction in fine lines.

After applying Oil Balance Pro Moisturiser, your skin should feel immediately more comfortable and softer.

We would expect within the first week that your skin will look brighter, less tired and feel more nourished.

The combination of ingredients is focused on reducing skin stress and improving hydration, so your skin looks smooth and never dry or tired.

Twice a week after using the face scrub your skin should look brighter and feel immediately invigorated and energised. It should also feel smoother.

If you are combining the scrub with Proverb serums and moisturisers it will help their penetration into newer skin cells. Overall, you should see an improvement in your skin condition.

Remember as your skin cycle is approximately 28 days when you change to any new skincare you should commit to 4 weeks to ensure your skin likes it.

Cleanse & Shave Nutrient Mud

It has a very unique texture-like whipped mud that glides on and makes your skin feel cool. Apply it neat and it feels like a creamy clay mask texture. However, as soon as you add water to your face it becomes an emulsified creamy face wash allowing you to really massage the skin and boost blood and nutrients to the skin cells.

The combination of natural clays is crucial to the anti-redness and smooth, even skin colour, but they are white. All skins - but especially darker skins definitely need a clean face flannel or muslin cloth to remove it. This is a win, as the cloth will also provide a gentle exfoliation.

It is the Proverb aroma people report they love the most, it smells clean and calming. Citrus and a woody tone behind this.

Strengthening Skin Serum

A gel texture that glides on like silk and absorbs quickly never leaving you feeling like there is product on the skin.

Citrus tones of bergamot, lemon peel and both sweet and bitter orange made more interesting with a unique blend of basil, thyme and mountain pepper so it is never too sweet.

Oil Balance Pro Moisturiser

A creamy texture that glides on and absorbs easily. It shares the same aroma as the serum.

Face Scrub

A dark, dense gloopy texture that spreads when it hits the skin and water and disperses all the thousands of tiny but strong, firm grains. This is a firm physical facial scrub so you don’t need to apply much pressure when using it. You can also use it on the body.

Smells so good you want to eat it and you can technically! It shares the citrus with herb blend found in all of the Anti-Age skincare program products.
