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 truly. 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 legal 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.

Made in England? Yes, formulated and made in England where our headquarters are. Ingredients are sourced sustainably from around the world. Lifefuelled humans using the products globally.

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

Lab tests on individual ingredients

Antartic Glycoproteins – Shown to induce Protein Synthesis – 34% increase of collagen synthesis at 0.1 mg/ml. Anti-wrinkle effect after twice daily application – The depth of wrinkles decreased an average of 44% after 30 days. Wrinkles reduced immediately by up to 5%. Adhesion of dermal fibroblasts: The fibroblasts adhesion increased by 125% in 5 hours and the keratinocytes growth by 36% after 48 hours.

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.

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.

Hyaluronic Acid proven to reduce TEWL (transepidermal water loss) and increase skin hydration by up to 10% from control group and more than 20% reduction of oiliness was seen in 12 weeks.

Your skin should feel like a cool silky layer is being applied. This serum feels like a silicone-based serum, but Proverb is committed to never using silicones. Our blue agaeve tequila mimics this feeling but is entirely natural and amazingly sustainable to grow as it is a desert plant that needs so little water.

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.

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.
