Teoxanne Cosmecuticals is new skincare line that has a core formula that includes cross-linked Resiliant Hyaluronic Acid (RHA). Basically, this is a souped-up version of hyaluronic acid, the must-have skincare ingredient that holds water in our skin. The range is made by the same company as Teosyal Dermal Fillers and harnesses the same advanced techology.
Cross-linked RHA means it has a stronger structure, is more elastic and less resistant to degradation than normal hyaluronic acid. RHA forms a breathable mesh over the skin which smoothes and plumps while also progressively releasing the other active ingredients in the core formula.
There are currently 8 Teoxane products available (a ninth is launching shortly) and I was sent the Advanced Filler For Dry Skin to try. After trying it for a few days and researching the brand I ending up buying a few more of the products. Here’s what I’ve been using…
RHA Serum – This is similar in look and texture to the hyaluronic acid serums we’ve got used to over the last few years i.e a clear gel. The difference with this one is that it contains the above mentioned cross-linked hyaluronic acid along with other powerful ingredients. These make up the ‘core formula’ that’s central to this range (more info on this below). This is my favourite product in the range and I’ve already ordered another. The RRP is £79 for 30ml.
Advanced Filler For Dry Skin – I use this after the RHA Serum and it’s more of a traditional moisturiser which feels very concentrated. You don’t need to use much at all (especially when used with the serum) for skin to feel ultra hydrated. As well as the core formula this also contains the peptide Matrixyl 3000, shea butter, meadow foam seed oil and cotton seed oil. The RRP is £75 for 50ml.
R[II] Eyes – While the RHA Serum doesn’t smell of anything and the Advanced Filler has a fairly typical skincare smell, the eye product smells quite funky. It would probably be too strong a scent for me to use all over my face but for just my eye area it’s fine and doesn’t bother me. This is a comprehensive eye product that tackles lines, dark circles and puffiness. It’s light in consistency and, unlike a lot of eye creams, I can use it overnight without it swelling up my eye area. As well as the core formula it contains escine, HA fragments and EPS seafill. The RRP is £54 for 15ml.
RHA Prime Solution – This is a cleasning/prep product that I’ve been using for a second cleanse or toner. It also contains the core formula, though in less concentrated amount, along with rose damascena water which gives it a beautiful scent. As lovely as this product is, it’s probably the least essential from the range. The RRP is £21 for 2ooml.
Along with the RHA, also included in the core formula is…
Dermo-Restructuring Complex – The purpose of this complex is to protect and restructure skin. The complex is made up of 8 amino acids, 3 anti-oxidents, 2 minerals and Vitamin B6
NovHyal (Pro Filler Molecule) – This stimulates our natural production of Hyaluronic Acid. It does this by regenerating fibroblasts (the cells that make the extracellular matrix and collagen) all the way to the dermo-epidermal junction (where the epidermis meets the dermal layer). This has helps strengthen the anchoring of the epidermis to the dermis which is important for general skin health.
I’m generally a big fan of clinical skincare ranges and I can now include Teoxane on the the list of ones I recommend. Obviously, the downside is the price but I do think you get what you pay for and I think it’s a good alternative route to plump skin for those, like me, who want to avoid injectables for as long as possible.
