GC Aesthetics, the experts in silicone, has now launched Silgel™ direct to the consumer for the first time. The go-to product for scar management, Silgel™ is a clear, non-sticky, pure silicone gel, which is clinically proven to be effective in treating both new and existing hypertrophic (red) and keloidal (raised) scars.
Having long been used by Surgeons as part of their patient’s aftercare for over 15 years, Silgel™ developed to reduce the visibility and flatten the scar. Silgel™ works by creating a barrier on the skin which helps to retain moisture and in turn, encourages the skin’s own natural healing process. The result is a smoother, softer and more even appearance.
Silgel™ is easy-to-apply making it convenient to use on a daily basis. The clear formula makes it aesthetically pleasing as well. Silgel dries fast leading to no stains on your clothes. Thanks to its proven results and superiority to other common scar treatment products, Silgel™ has been utilised in surgery aftercare for over a decade:
Silgel™ is available in a 20ml tube, RRP: £35.99 / €43.50. www.silgel.com
NEW Quinoa & Avocado Styling Gel
Style and condition your hair with our nutrient-packed, light hold gel suitable for all hair types.
No residue, no stickiness and no flakes. Quinoa protein works alongside Irish Moss, a mineral rich seaweed, and Xanthan gum to create a unique natural gelling action which coats each hair shaft and gently stiffens as it dries, holding your style in place.
This light hold gel means no extra weight to drag the hair down. Quinoa protein delivers body by coating each hair shaft, so when you blow dry you lock in volume for hair that looks thicker and fuller with added bounce.
Avocado oil has powerful conditioning effects for high- shine, gloss and softness and is rich in antioxidants to reverse hair damage from external factors. Helping to maintain vitality, Beer yeast extract (which is rich in B vitamins), works in synergy with Quinoa protein to intensely enhance and condition the hair, making it more manageable and easier to style.
The strain on your hair from styling, pollutants and UV rays can leave the lipids in the cuticle damaged, leading to dull, frizzy, dry, weak and brittle hair. Quinoa & Avocado Styling Gel makes the perfect leave-in conditioner, preserving the surface of the hair to leave both natural and coloured hair with high-shine and brilliance. Studies on Quinoa protein show that after just 5 applications the hair’s gloss value is improved by 51%! £9.95 for 100ml For stockist details please call 01403 740 350 or visit www.greenpeople.co.uk
