Previously known as Red Alert® Serum.
A soothing recipe of just 7 active ingredients to calm redness and provide intensive relief to sensitive skin. By improving the skin’s natural barrier function, this nourishing serum helps to combat all kinds of redness, including flare-ups caused by day-to-day environmental stress, irritants and dryness. Crafted with teprenone, a patented anti-redness ingredient designed to restore stressed, angry skin. Clinical trials have shown that teprenone can reduce redness by up to 30% after just 1 month of use as well as reducing visible signs of ageing.* As the ultimate restorative serum, it improves skin firmness and hydration, leaving skin supple and glowing. Overtime, Calmwise Serum leaves damaged, sore skin looking calm and feeling comfortable.

Calm redness, fast. Teprenone, the key active ingredient in Calmwise Serum, has been found to visibly reduce red, reactive skin in just 1 month. The soothing formula is designed specifically for sensitised skin, so is non-irritating, fragrance-free and paraben-free. The silky serum absorbs into the skin quickly, leaving behind a naturally glowing and hydrated complexion. 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.* 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.

STRAIGHT FROM THE LAB
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.
