|How it works
Medik8 Clarity Peptides is a non-sticky, lightweight, milky serum. It infuses the complexion with 10% niacinamide; skincare’s very best anti-inflammatory active to help combat blemishes. Also, able to stimulate ceramide synthesis, niacinamide boosts your skin’s natural dew for a subtle sheen ideal for under make-up. Niacinamide also helps to reduce any hyperpigmentation responsible for uneven skin tone. Next-generation Crystalide peptide promotes your skin’s natural reflectance. It targets the natural protein α-crystallin which is responsible for minimising cell waste which can cause a cloudy complexion. In conjunction with softly polishing the skin, Crystalide peptide smooths over the complexion leaving a beautifully translucent, ultra-smooth finish. The perfect base for make-up. The dewy glow is maximised through collagen stimulation thanks to ultra-hydrating hyaluronic acid, while zinc PCA tackles blemish-causing bacteria for a flawless complexion.
|Key ingredients & full ingredients list
10% Niacinamide – Otherwise known as vitamin B3, one of the most potent anti-inflammatories in skincare, niacinamide effectively soothes and restores irritated, redness-prone and blemished complexions. Crystalide Peptide – Crystalide is the peptide that works in two ways; it normalises the way skin cells renew, helping to create a uniform surface, and it upregulates a protein called α-crystallin which promotes skin transparency and luminosity. Zinc PCA – A natural mineral, zinc helps to regulate oil production, promote the skin’s natural healing process and reduce inflammation. Zinc PCA is a specialised fused version of zinc that can balance sebum activity which helps to reduce the likelihood of blemishes occurring. Hyaluronic Acid – Able to hold up to 1,000 times its own weight in water, hyaluronic acid draws moisture from the surrounding atmosphere into the skin, leaving the complexion both nourished and supple. N-Acetyl Glucosamine (NAG) – Naturally occurring in the body, N-acetyl glucosamine helps to block the creation of pigments in the skin, leaving a more even complexion.

Alongside ‘CSA’, we use potent combinations of antioxidants, botanicals and ultra-exfoliating hydroxy acids to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles while preventing future sun and pollution-induced damage. There is a myth that niacinamide and vitamin C cannot be used in conjunction together. This is not true. Niacinamide and vitamin C can be used layered on the skin and can produce amazing brightening and collagen-boosting results. Clarity Peptides with a fine group of ingredients – 10% niacinamide alongside Crystalide peptide infused by zinc PCA – promotes a flawless, blemish-free and luminous complexion which helps minimise how much make-up you need to perfect your skin. It is a multi-functional serum that suits all skin types.
