Taking the Industry by Storm: Glass Skin

October 20, 2022

Have you heard about the glass skin trend taking over social media? Well we have - and Seppic has the ingredients to help you develop skincare products that give your consumers that dewy, super hydrated, glass skin look!

The term “glass skin” refers to a glassy, hydrated look with an extremely even, flawless complexion. This is often achieved after applying serums and moisturizers that leave a glossy look on the face - and while this look might be temporary as the products are absorbed into the skin, there are ways to make the skin glow with radiance and hydration through ingredients!

Let’s break it down

Glass skin doesn’t just happen naturally for everyone. Our skin is all different and has its own unique needs - that's where ingredients come in! Seppic has ingredients for all types of skin needs to help achieve that glassy, moisturized skin.
