Teprenone, the key active ingredient in Calmwise Serum, has been found to visibly reduce red, reactive skin in just 1 month.
As the ultimate restorative serum, it improves skin firmness and hydration, leaving skin supple and glowing.
The soothing formula is designed specifically for sensitised skin, so is non-irritating, fragrance-free and paraben-free.
Suitable for all skin types, the lightweight serum is non-comedogenic and won’t aggravate acne, making it a fantastic serum to calm the redness associated with blemishes.
How It Works
This intelligent anti-redness serum supports sensitive skin by prolonging the life of skin cells. The DNA within our skin cells contains a string of amino acids called telomeres. These shorten continuously as we age, eventually becoming so small that they trigger cell death.
Teprenone helps to stabilise telomeres. This extends the life of the cell and consequently enhances the skin’s natural barrier function. As a result, the skin’s sensitivity to external factors is reduced. In studies, teprenone has been shown to extend a cell’s lifespan by as much as a third.*
*Independent trial by Sederma
Organic sage extract is used alongside teprenone to prevent free radical attack. Boasting powerful antioxidant properties, it shields the skin from environmental damage to prevent premature signs of ageing. The extract also works as an anti-inflammatory to soothe redness-prone skin, leaving a smooth and even complexion.
How To Use
After cleansing in the morning and evening, massage 6 drops of Calmwise Serum across the face where required.
Leave to absorb before applying moisturiser.
Follow with sunscreen in the day.
Patch testing prior to use is advised. Refer to medik8.co/patch for an in-depth guide to patch testing.

The Science Behind
Calmwise Serum (or Red Alert Serum as it was previously known) was the original product that kicked off Medik8 from humble beginnings. Our founder, Elliot Isaacs, developed the revolutionary serum for his sister who suffered from constant redness and very sensitive skin. Elliot used his biochemical knowledge and skin care expertise to craft an extremely effective and easy to use serum, which was the solution to his sister’s sensitive skin. And so Medik8 was born and Calmwise Serum remains a best seller to this day.
