This serum has absolutely transformed my skin. I’m considerably less oily during the day and have had so many compliments on the glow of my skin! Definitely would recommend!

I cannot live without this product! It gives my skin radiance and clarity like no other product. My daughter is now using it too and has found it gets rid of skin blemishes and gives her skin an all over brightness. She loves it too.

So so happy with my purchase. I am fair with a freckly complexion. I use this product every morning and night under my other creams and have to say for such a gentle clear serum it really does the job! I no longer wear make up only sunscreen and this is the only thing I’ve changed in my routine.

What The Experts Say

"There is something quite magical about these Synthesis products, I don’t really understand what it is, but it is not just that they are Organic. I had not used them for a while and my skin looked lined and my brow felt tense. I used the cream and cleanser again and the taught tension on my brow was literally released and the lines seem to have gone again!"

Sharon Davies Editor - British Medical Journal

"Synthesis is amazing, it’s not just an organic range, it has a connection with the healing properties of water and a special energy alchemy. It’s the consciousness that Theme brings to the company, from the environmental consideration, the indigenous connection, to her Energy Imbued® magic, that makes Synthesis stand out as the organic care range of choice for the most discerning wellness spas."

Dr Marc Cohen
Board Global Wellness Summit,
Founder Extreme Wellness

"This is the future of our industry, taking our products to a higher level. Rains (founder of Synthesis) uses a proprietary process to energise ingredients, without chemicals or preservatives, to the point of synergy. Products of this nature become an energy source beyond something you put on your skin."

Maria Camille for Les Nouvelles Esthétiques & Spa

"My Beauty Favourite is Synthesis because it not only works on the skin but also on mental and emotional levels and minimizes the impact of stress – a big factor with most people today."

Sharron Hopley General Manager Spa Village Tembok Bali

"The partnership between Synthesis and Peninsula Hot Springs is a natural one with both brands sharing an alignment in purpose; to promote wellness and offer restoration through connection to nature and self.."
