Dragon’s Blood has been named as one of the most powerful anti-ageing ingredients in the skincare industry owing to its medicinal properties, but its origins aren’t as fanciful as you have thought.
Found in the sap of the Croton Lechleri tree of north-western South America, the name ‘Dragon’s Blood’ derives from medieval folk law claiming the sap was actually the blood of elephants and dragons that perished in battle. Myths aside, the tree sap has been used as a natural medicine in South America for many years as it’s believed to have anti-inflammatory, wound-healing, antimicrobial, and antioxidant properties. It’s also known to have a calming effect. When applied topically, it forms a protective layer on the skin and reduces both redness and irritation.
SKIN PHYSICS was the first brand to introduce the Australian market to Dragon’s Blood and remains to this day a best-selling range in Australian pharmacies. Recently SKIN PHYSICS has celebrated this success with a face-lift and brought out fiery new packaging, but one thing remains the same, the tried and trusted formulas remain highly effective and loved nationwide.
SKIN PHYSICS has created a unique range of formulas infused with the rejuvenating properties of Dragon’s Blood with each product designed to work in synergy to boost and maximise results.
Facial Sculpting Gel | $59.95
“The original liquid face lift”
This fast-acting anti-ageing gel has the same formulation customers know and love! Its unique micro-hydration technology delivers an intense dose of long-lasting moisture to visibly plump, lift and firm the contours of the skin for a more refreshed and youthful appearance. It forms a ‘second-skin’ like film to reinforce the skin’s protective barrier and improve overall texture, firmness and elasticity.
Ultra Plumping Night Cream | $59.95
“Now kinder on sensitive skin”
This potent hydrating and firming night cream uses the nourishing, moisturising and antioxidant properties of Dragon’s Blood extract and Argan Oil. It contains 3D Plumping Spheres that deliver a high dose of Hyaluronic Acid into the skin, unravelling within to plump-out wrinkles, smooth facial lines and firm the skin. Fermented pomegranate fruit provides a rich source of exfoliating enzymes that work on dull, dead skin cells to reveal resurfaced, refined and radiant skin.
Radiance Daily Moisturiser SPF 15 | $39.95
“Extra protection from infrared radiation, blue light and pollution”
This Age Défense cream moisturises and protects the skin from five main causes of premature ageing; UVA, UVB, infrared radiation, blue light and pollution. It is infused with an award-winning extract blend of organic sunflower sprout, tara fruit pods (from Peru), which are rich in antioxidants that protect skin from damaging free radicals formed by infrared (deep penetrating) and blue light (high energy).
3-in-1 Advanced Treatment Cleanser | $19.95
“With extra foaming action to purify skin”
This daily oil foaming cleanser provides the convenience of a 3-in-1 action for cleansing without stripping the skin of its natural oils. Now with greater foaming action, the 3-in-1 Advanced Treatment Cleanser clarifies the skin to reveal a rejuvenated, renewed and refreshed complexion. A natural blend of AHA fruit extracts gently exfoliates the skin by increasing cell turnover to reduce the severity of fine lines, wrinkles and dull skin.
