The Science of COR
Cor Silver skincare products combine natural ingredients with scientific delivery to keep your face healthy, clean and clear.
We emphasize "science" – but not "rocket science!" Healthy and beautiful skin shouldn't take hours each day and loads of complicated products.
Our approach is simple and hassle-free. We ask three questions of all our products:
- Are the ingredients, wherever possible, based in nature?
- Is it effective – does the product really, really work?
- Is it easy and quick – as in, can I get in and out of the bathroom in five minutes?
If a product can't meet these goals, it isn't Cor. Cor Silver's natural skincare products really work, and they really are quick and simple to use!
What are Cor's ingredients and how do they work?
We start with our signature silver.
Its anti-inflammatory quality makes it a skincare heavy-hitter, as nearly all skin issues — including redness, acne, and chronic conditions such as dermatitis, rosacea and psoriasis — stem from inflammation.
But our silver has a unique way of fighting off acne-causing bacteria: the particles attach themselves to the proteins on the cellular wall of the bacteria, where they penetrate into the cell to disrupt the metabolic processes of the bacteria. Basically, you can think of silver as suffocating the bacteria.
Not only that, but the anti-fungal benefits of silver simultaneously foster a healthy microbiome, leaving the skin’s barrier better protected.
In this way, the substance kickstarts the skin’s natural repair mechanisms. These particles also help promote the healing of skin. Hence, it works great on all skin types, especially the breakout-prone.
Additionally it has cell regeneration properties which is why it is often used on burn victims. It simultaneously stops infections forming and helps lessen the scarring process.
The power ingredients of Cor's The Silver Soap don't stop there though. In brief, we layer in:
Marine Collagen: can add a more youthful appearance to your face. Collagen gives your skin structure and elasticity.
Sericin: a natural, soluble protein made from silk. Highly moisture-binding and film-forming, it protects the skin against the harsh effects of the environment.
Chitosan: a natural fibre that acts to even out skin tone especially in trouble areas like the T zone.
Hyaluronic acid: brings moisture to the surface of your skin. Because of its ability to draw and hold water, it can be used as a humectant in your skin care regime. It continually keeps skin moisturized throughout the day.
Huang Qin or Chinese skullcap: A potent antioxidant compound that is rich in flavonoids and other bioactive elements which has been shown to provide significant protection from sun damage.
Jojoba, Avocado, Aloe, Pomegranate, Olives, Grapeseed, Arabica Coffee, and other natural ingredients provide your skin with vitamins, antioxidants and healthy oils and proteins. This moisturizes, relaxes and repairs the delicate skin of your face, reducing the effects of aging.
Finally, Vitamin A in the form of retinol, Vitamin E in the form of tocopheryl acetate, and Vitamins D2 and D3, all nourish, brighten and strengthen your delicate skin.
