As the largest organ of the body, skin is your first immunological defence – packing the power to absorb 60% of whatever may be slathered onto it. That’s why, when beauty guru Karen Ballou fell ill with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, her skincare regime was the first to go under her microscope.

It was during the healing process that the power of clay in immune health became apparent to her (to aid in reducing inflammation, Karen was encouraged to ingest raw earth clay) – and, utilising her 30 years of experience in the industry, Immunocologie was born. 

With day, night and travel rituals based around the bio-mineral French green clay, the range deeply penetrates via the Vital Oligo Science delivery system – a natural technology developed by the brand to mimic the skin’s own metabolic process. The Day Protection moisturiser steps up to the mark for a super-charged antioxidant daily barrier that defends against pesky free radicals and nasties whether walking in the city or soaring at 35,000 feet; it’s worn best alongside the Intense Eye Crème, which will leave you looking bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, and our hero rapid-fix product Super 7 Elixir Face.

Take note: what you put on your body is just as important as what you put into it.
