Up to 63% decrease in wrinkle depth in 28 days.
This revolutionary anti-ageing moisturiser is often referred to as an ‘alternative to injectables’ for its ability to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. S8-28 contains an octapeptide that blocks nerve signals to muscles, reducing muscular contraction caused by neuronal overstimulation. It targets the same protein complex as the injectables but in a kinder, more cost effective and safer way.
With the addition of moisture binding hydration boosters like provitamin B5 and hyaluronic acid, plus phytosterols that help protect against photoageing and inflammation, you can rest assured that S8-28 has your skin ageing concerns covered.

Suited To: Mature / Dry / Dehydrated / Oily / Combination Skin
Please see our FAQ page for a detailed scientific explanation.
Rosa Canina Fruit Oil | Rich in fatty acids and antioxidants, Rosehip Oil helps boost collagen to increase skin firmness, and reduce redness. It’s an absolute skin saviour for mature and sensitive skin types.
Sodium Hyaluronate | Is an easily absorbed form of hyaluronic acid that penetrates deep into the skin to immediately plump and hydrate.
Amino Acids | Strengthen the skins hydration and resilience, and improve skin texture for an overall healthier appearance.
Provitamin B5 | Panthenol is a natural anti-inflammatory that reduces redness and improves skin hydration and elasticity.
Phytosterols | These ‘super antioxidants’ reduce free radical damage and inflammation.
Apply 2 pumps of moisturiser onto your finger tips and massage over your entire complexion and décolletage area, avoiding your eye lids. Discontinue use if irritation occurs and seek medical assistance if required.
Storage: S8-28 is best stored in a cool dark cupboard away from the fluctuating heat, light and humidity in your bathroom.
*Please note that if using facial oils and sunscreen, these are always applied as your last step, after your moisturiser.

How does SNAP-8™ work?
SNAP-8™ works by disrupting neuronal exocytosis through destabilization of the SNARE complex. The SNARE complex is made up of 3 proteins: SNAP-25, Vamp and Syntaxin. These proteins are responsible for the docking of synaptic vesicles (which contain acetylcholine) with the presynaptic membrane in neurons. If this docking and fusion cannot occur, then Acetylcholine cannot not be released and muscles cannot contract.
SNAP-8™ mimics the SNAP-25 protein, competing with it for a place in the complex, affecting its formation and stability.
How is SNAP-8™ different to botox?
SNAP-8™ and Botulinum toxins target the same protein complex (SNARE complex) but in a completely different way. SNAP-8™ mimics the SNAP-25 protein competing with it for a place in the SNARE complex. The SNARE complex is ‘captured’ and muscles are relaxed. Botulinum toxins on the other hand cleave the SNAP-25 protein, breaking the SNARE complex to create muscle paralysis.
Botulinum Toxin is thought to be the most lethal substance on a weight basis (1g of toxin could kill one million people). Cosmetic use requires facial injections which are uncomfortable and can be painful.
SNAP-8™ is a harmless octapeptide composed of amino acids. Cosmetic use is via topical application through creams and serum. In a nutshell, SNAP-8™ is a safer, cheaper and milder alternative to Botulinum Toxin, topically targeting the same wrinkle formation mechanism but in a very different way.
