100% natural, clean and perfect for hormonal, break-out prone, tricky skin-types.
DISCIPLE was born out of the need for all natural, knowledgable skincare with transparent labelling and the results you would expect from a clinical range. Every plant extract and compound has been expertly blended for visible results and products that are beautiful to use.
Here's what makes DISCIPLE different:
\\ADAPTOGENS are potent plant extracts that balance, restore and protect the body. We love these. Anxiety and stress increase cortisol - our stress hormone. Eventually this imbalance can directly interfere with the testosterone pathway and cause acne. We use botanical adaptogens that greatly improve your body's ability to adapt to stress and help to rebalance hormones.
\\PREBIOTICS. Much like our gut, our skin has a unique flora - with bad bacteria Propionibacterium acnes causing breakouts. We use inulin rich burdock root - a prebiotic plant fibre to beneficially nourish the good bacteria on the surface of the skin, helping to reduce inflammation and fight breakouts.
\\LINOLEIC ACID is an omega 6 fatty acid. Breakout sufferers have been shown to have low levels of Linoleic acid in their skin surface lipids. When our skin is deficient in Linoleic acid our skins' natural sebum becomes thick, sticky and clogs pores - that's why some skin oils can cause breakouts: not all oils are created equally. All DISCIPLE oils are high in Linoleic acid which helps to balance the skins natural sebum consistency.
\\SMALL BATCH production is the best way to ensure fresh and potent skincare. All of our products are hand-blended in small batches — using the best botanical raw ingredients.
Mass production = long shelf life = preservatives.
All of our products have been clinically safety tested.
\\CLEAN. Non-toxic. We choose ingredients and formulations that are not harmful to your health. We are also completely transparent with our labelling. Obviously we don't test on animals. We don't use fragrance, preservatives, lanolin, parabens, mineral oil or any other weird ingredients.
