The Maximal Performance Ingredients That Power Our New Body Serum

The Maximal Performance Ingredients That Power Our New Body Serum

When we created our new Resurfacing Body Serum, we carefully selected our body serum ingredients the same way we formulate for your face. We knew from the start that rather than making a lotion, we were designing anti-aging skincare for your whole body. And that’s exactly what this product does. Born from our best-selling Resurfacing Mask and award-winning Resurfacing Serum, we made this head-to-toe treatment with face-grade ingredients to resurface, brighten, smooth, and nourish.

Targeted skincare shouldn’t stop at your neck, so our Resurfacing Body Serum features face-grade ingredients for full-body skincare results. We went around the world to find AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) superfruits, fruit-based vitamin C, plant-derived vitamin A, natural peptides, and hyaluronic acid. The result: Our Resurfacing Body Serum is made with 25 ingredients from six countries, each bringing a specific benefit to treat the needs of the skin below your neck. Read on to discover exactly what they do.

How Our Body Serum Ingredients Create a Maximal-Performance Formula  

To us, “maximal performance” means considering new formulations from multiple angles to deliver the maximal results you deserve. We begin by considering every biological pathway when addressing a skin issue. Then we think about how best to combine our extensive research and technology with proven holistic modalities. We know that nature has unlimited potential, so we always search for the purest natural ingredients in the most powerful combinations. After a lot of testing, we found a fast-absorbing formula that works on multiple pathways for healthy-looking skin: brightening, resurfacing, smoothing, hydrating, and nourishing.

Which Ingredients Power our Resurfacing Body Serum? 

We broke our 25 maximal-performance ingredients down into their five respective pathways, so you know exactly what each one does.

Brightening Ingredients 

Kakadu plum (from Australia): A powerful, antioxidant-rich fruit known to be the world’s highest source of fruit-based vitamin C. It also contains vitamins E, A, and polyphenols for additional antioxidant benefits. This superfruit brightens and evens skin tone for radiant, luminous, and healthy-looking skin.

Wrinkle Reducing Ingredients

Cacay oil (from Colombia): A non-irritating, multifunctional oil rich in natural vitamin A (aka retinol), an ingredient that promotes your skin’s renewal and regenerating processes. Vitamin A is commonly used in skincare for its wrinkle minimizing, smoothing, and firming properties.

Resurfacing Ingredients 

AHA superfruit blend (from the USA): A combination of bilberry, sugarcane, orange, lemon, and sugar maple provides five different types of AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) — including lactic acid and glycolic acid — to exfoliate and enhance cellular renewal for smoother, brighter-looking skin.

White willow bark (from Canada): A natural, non-irritating alternative to BHAs (beta hydroxy acid) like salicylic acid. This ingredient exfoliates dead skin cells and unclogs pores to restore clarity.

Smoothing Ingredients

Pomegranate spheres and orange peptides (from the USA): A powerful duo that works together to create a moisture-trapping barrier for skin that’s smooth to the touch. Pomegranate spheres absorb and hold water on the surface of your skin while orange peptides fortify your barrier function and lock in moisture for bouncy, firm looking skin.

Hydrating Ingredients 

Macro hyaluronic acid (from South Korea): A hygroscopic molecule that absorbs and traps water. This ingredient works in the outer layers of your skin to provide conditioning moisture and improve overall skin texture and barrier function.

Nourishing Ingredients

Chlorophyll (from the USA): A multifunctional superfood for healthy-looking skin. It’s rich in proteins and minerals (that help hydrate and energize your skin), amino acids and antioxidants (that can improve your skin’s natural repair process), and multiple vitamins (that can help protect and strengthen your skin’s natural defense systems).

How To Use Our Tata Harper Resurfacing Body Serum  

We specifically formulated our Resurfacing Body Serum to be gentle enough for daily use, so you can easily incorporate it into your existing body care routine. While the 25 maximal performance ingredients make this a multitasking treatment, we also created a mini ritual for days when you want to spend more intentional time on your routine.

For a total-body ritual, we recommend using our Smoothing Body Scrub before you shower to buff and polish your skin. After you dry off, use our Resurfacing Body Serum to brighten, hydrate, and smooth. If you have dry skin or want to add additional moisture and smoothing benefits, finish off with a layer of our Revitalizing Body Oil and give yourself a head-to-toe sculpting massage with our Sculpting Body Stone
