Celebrating 30 Years With The NEW Hydra-Collagen & Black Pearl Collection

If you didn’t already know, SBC is celebrating 30 Years of British Skincare this year!

SBC 30 Years

From day one, SBC Skincare set out to be leaders in professional skincare, launching into the industry with our signature gel formula in three variations: Aloe Vera, Vitamin E and Collagen.

Due to demand, we soon made SBC available to all, not just for professional beauty therapists. It wasn’t long before we discovered our customers had a clear favourite…  Collagen.

SBC’s Iconic Collection

The Collagen Collection, now ‘Hydra-Collagen’, has never stopped evolving and currently encompasses 15 products. Utilising Marine Collagen in luxurious anti-ageing formulas has turned out to be our forte. We wanted to make sure you could use this extract in every step of your skincare routine, and to use it on both the face and body.

Which is why… we have taken this incredible extract and added a little more luxury to a New Collection in order to celebrate 30 Years of SBC Skincare!

Next Generation Hydra-Collagen

SBC wanted to utilise an extract that would not only support the amazing skin benefits of our Marine Collagen but would take luxury and anti-ageing to the next level. We are very excited to introduce to you the indulgent Hydra-Collagen & Black Pearl Collection. We discovered a precious and powerful extract which echoes the same natural benefits of Marine Collagen, which also helps to promote and maintain skin’s youthfulness. Introducing another source of purity from the ocean, Black Pearl.

The Hydra-Collagen & Black Pearl Collection is an innovative trio of products with a revolutionary and unique complex, that helps to retain the healthy function of the skin and minimise signs of ageing. It is suitable for all skin types, although those with dry, dehydrated and mature skin will particularly benefit from the nourishing formulas.

Precious Black Pearl

Black Pearls originate from the waters of French Polynesia. They are commonly referred to as Tahitian Pearls and are created by a ‘Black Lipped’ oyster called Pinctada Margaritifera. The pearls are crushed and micronised to a powder which is then infused into topical skincare products.

In skincare, Black Pearl is firming and smoothing, due to the amino acid content which improves the skin’s ability to retain moisture and increase suppleness. The high calcium carbonate content is known to draw in water, so intensifying hydration. Black Pearl also helps to firm the skin and improve elasticity due to containing polysaccharides. A key anti-ageing element is utilising antioxidants in your skincare, which Black Pearl also contains. Antioxidants help neutralise the damage caused by free radicals.

Beautiful Hibiscus

Another key ingredient in the new Collection is Hibiscus Extract. Hibiscus is a beautiful, brightly coloured, ornamental plant, which goes beyond just looking good…

Hibiscus Extract is rich in vitamins, including C and E, and antioxidants. In fact, the antioxidants are like those found in bilberry, cranberry and red wine, maximising the formula’s defence against environmental aggressors. Hibiscus also contains mucilage, which is a gel-like serum from the stem of the blossom. This works to improve elasticity, firmness, texture and suppleness within the skin and helps skin stay hydrated for longer

Finally, Hibiscus is a natural source of alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), which are known to exfoliate, control breakouts and encourage fresher, smoother-looking skin.

A New Addictive Aroma

The sweet and indulgent fragrance opens with a light citrus accord, leading to a floral heart of violet petals and powdery iris, interwoven with heady jasmine and red velvet rose. A rich oriental layer of fine woods, balsams and vanilla, twisted with a warm coffee hint completes the base.

The Ritual…

1.) Hydra-Collagen & Black Pearl Body Wash

Start with a cleanse or a soak with this luxurious, wonderfully fragrant, body wash, as it gently cleanses the skin whilst helping to maintain its natural moisture barrier.  

The deluxe formula creates a rich lather to leave your skin feeling silky smooth, nourished and wonderfully fragrant with notes of violet petals, powdery iris and heady jasmine. The body wash also creates soft and creamy bath bubbles so, if you have more time to spare, we would recommend using it in the bath to enjoy a relaxing, and indulgent soak.

2.) Hydra-Collagen & Black Pearl Moisturising Gel

We couldn’t develop this new Collection without our signature formula. After cleansing, smooth on the Hydra-Collagen & Black Pearl Moisturising Gel.

This lightweight face and body gel is formulated to moisturise the skin from top to toe, leaving it feeling more supple and firm with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles minimised.

3.) Hydra-Collagen & Black Pearl Indulgent Body Silk

Apply the Body Silk as the last step in your routine, for ultimate skin bliss.  A new formula, for a new Collection – and the most intensively luxurious one yet.

The new Indulgent Hydra-Collagen & Black Pearl Body Silk transforms from a cream to an oil when massaged in. Infused with Sweet Almond Oil and Vitamin E, this satin-like body silk glides on to intensely nourish, soften and enhance elasticity. The transforming formula leaves a beautiful sheen on your skin, for an instant radiant glow.

  1. Sounds lovely I must try it

  2. Although the new range sounds interesting I do hope this doesn’t mean you are discontinuing or changing the fragrance of the original Collagen Bath and Shower Creme!

    1. Hi Christine
      We are not discontinuing or changing the Collagen Bath & Shower Creme. The Hydra-Collagen & Black Pearl is another collection that we have added to coincide with SBC’s 30th anniversary.
