Q: “Why are the Pearl Gel and the Hydra-Seal great products to recommend for younger skins?”
IDC: Pearl Gel and Hydra Seal are great for younger skins because this moisturizing routine will help postpone the apparition of signs of aging. Until 25, a consumer can take care of all her skin needs by exclusively cleansing, moisturizing and by applying a SPF if the skin is regularly exposed to the sun.

Q: “How can I know what IDC product is suitable for what skin type?”
IDC: IDC’s products are specifically formulated for all skin types. However, different skin types tend to have different preferences.
- Dry skins tend to prefer using the Integral Cleanser-Milk rather than the Pearl Gel, for its moisturizing properties.
- Oily skins tend to prefer the Pearl Gel rather than the Integral Cleanser-Milk, for tis purifying properties. .
- Normal-oily skins tend to prefer moisturizing gels such as the Hydragel or Powergel and their lighter textures.
- Dry skins tend to prefer a richer cream, such as the Hydra-Seal.
Anti-Aging Serums:
- The suitability of an IDC Anti-Aging serum will depend on the signs of aging targeted by said serum and the customer’s age.

Q: “How do I know if I should use a product during the day or at night?”

IDC: IDC products are formulated to be used day and night, twice a day. However we recommend that all products containing SPF, such as the Regen Express Perfection or the Hydra-Seal SPF 25 be used during the day. The Ideal Multi Correction and its instant lift and light effect is also recommended for use in the morning, while more concentrated and richer serums, such as the Anti-Wrinkle and Firming, are perfect for use at night since the skin is more open for in depth correction while sleeping.

Q: “What does ECM2 synthesis means?”
IDC: ECM stands for “extracellular matrix” and synthesis is a synonymous of “production”.
ECM2 synthesis is the production of molecules in the extracellular matrix. Between these molecules, we find various proteins; of which the most well known are collagen, elastin and fibronectin. They are responsible for the skin’s structure, elasticity and firmness.
REGEN-16 targets the ECM in two different ways. It stimulates the ECM synthesis to generate additional proteins such as collagen, elastin and fibronectin, while simultaneously moderating the activity of several enzymes, such as collagenases and elastases, responsible of the degradation of these proteins.

Q: “How can I figure out the age of my skin and the right IDC routine to use?”
IDC: The key is looking closely at your skin’s signs of aging. If they tend to be winkles, lack of firmness, uneven complexion and under eye puffiness, your skin age will be 35+. If your main signs are deep wrinkles, loss of elasticity, visible dryness and age spots, your skin age will be 50+.
If no signs of aging have appeared yet, proper skin cleansing and moisturising will be key, with for example a combination of the Pearl Gel and Regen Express. Remember, prevention is as important as correction.

Q: “Do you have concentration comparisons with other brands?”
IDC: Inspired by its pharmaceutical heritage and its methodologies, IDC is looking to bring a new level of transparency to the cosmetic industry. This explains why we actually show on our packaging the percentages of cosmetic ingredients used in our formulas. However, because the cosmetic industry does not require revealing such information, very few brands actually do so; hence we do not have official comparisons to give.

Nevertheless, on average, we would say that the cosmetic industry uses between 2 to 10% of cosmetic ingredients in their products, depending on the type of product (cleanser, moisturizer, serum…).

Q: “Do the Pearl Gel and Integral Cleanser Milk remove waterproof make-up?”
IDC: These two products were not specifically formulated to remove waterproof make-up. However they will remove all other types of make-up, and the Integral Cleanser Milk will also remove non-waterproof eye make-up.

Q: “Why should I use a moisturizer if the Regen 16 already contains moisturizing agents?
IDC: Hydration is a key mechanism linked to the appearance of signs of aging; therefore Regen 16 includes the necessary ingredients to address it. However the skin’s physiological need for moisturization is so important that we recommend using a moisturizer as the third step of our routines, unless you are using a multifunctional product such as Regen Express.

Q: “How do I know that all your active ingredients will be correctly delivered to my skin, and what delivery systems do you use?”
IDC: A team of dermatologists, plastic surgeons and scientists spent over 5 years designing the Regen 16 in order to ensure that the diversity of cosmetic molecules and excipients synergistically work together and offer the best bioavailability possible.
Additionally, IDC products are clinically tested and results are regularly published in scientific journals demonstrating our product’s excellent results. We are fully transparent and are proud of our product’s effectiveness.

Q: “Do all the molecules contained in REGEN-16 work well together?”
IDC: Yes, they do and we are very proud of this. A team of dermatologists, plastic surgeons and scientists spent over 2 years formulating the technology, ensuring optimal bioavailability, stability and security for the skin. This complex process and our team’s expertise is yet another reason why Regen 16 is unique.

In 2000 Alpha-H created Liquid Gold, a skin resurfacing treatment which uses a state of the art, low pH delivery system to effectively diminish wrinkles, pigmentation and sun damage. Having quickly become a cult favourite amongst makeup artists, clinicians and beauty writers such as Zoe Foster (author of the iconic beauty publication Amazing Face), Liquid Gold subsequently went on to become a global best seller... but there are probably a few things you didn't know about this "can't live without" product (a claim made by none other than Ruth Crilly from the popular 'A Model Recommends' Beauty Blog) that may just surprise you…






From Bahrain to Biarritz, from Cape Town to Coventry, Liquid Gold is now so popular that Alpha-H sells one of its iconic 100ml bottles every minute of every hour, of every day, globally!






Alpha-H may be owned and manufactured on the Gold Coast in Queensland Australia, but the name “Liquid Gold” has nothing to do with its geographical origins... When Michelle Doherty was formulating the product, she asked a beauty therapist colleague for her feedback on the prototype. And the response after just one application: “Michelle, it’s amazing - it’s like Liquid Gold!”






Famous for its speedy results, Liquid Gold smoothes and brightens your skin while you sleep… The secret is in the 5% Glycolic Acid; a natural fruit acid most commonly derived from Sugarcane. Approximately 95% of Australia’s Sugarcane is grown in Queensland so we’re pretty confident we can always keep you stocked with your Liquid Gold!






As anyone who’s tried Liquid Gold will know, when you apply it to your skin at night it tingles momentarily… The reason is the low pH… and by dropping the pH of your skin we make it work harder to reset itself. That’s why your skin feels firmer in the morning, because it’s literally had “a workout”! So… while you sleep, your skin works out… Now if only the gym were that simple!






Fruit acids have been used in anti-ageing preparations for thousands of years by many different cultures… The Greeks and Romans are said to have used Tartaric Acid, in the form of Grape Juice, as a tonic to brighten their skin, whilst Cleopatra is said to have favoured milk baths containing Lactic Acid, to cleanse and soften her skin… Fortunately with Liquid Gold, you won’t need a tubful. Each individual application is roughly 5ml’s which also makes it one of the most cost effective anti-ageing products you’ll ever use!






Liquid Gold contains Liquorice Root or Glycyrrhiza Glabra - also known as “sweet root”; a legume plant native to Southern Europe, Australia and parts of Asia. Revered for its soothing properties, Liquorice Root also contains a compound called Glabridin which brightens the skin, making it effective to improve the appearance of sun damage and pigmentation…






Liquid Gold isn’t just for your face... Alpha-H therapists recommend it to their clients to use all over the body in-between waxing appointments or 24 hours after depilation. Reducing the build up of dead skin cells in those areas may also help reduce the incidence of problematic and in-grown hairs…






Try wiping over with Liquid Gold before applying your favourite deep cleansing mask… The natural fruits acids exfoliate dead skin cells and excess oil from the pores, to help your clay mask draw out more impurities!







If you’re fighting the good fight against ageing then don’t forget your hands… Age spots are only a good look on antiques! Wipe over the back of your hands at night to keep them looking as young as your face!







Ever had a self-tanning disaster??? If home bronzing should ever leave you looking more Tangerine than Tanned Goddess then reach for the Liquid Gold! Ditto any telltale Tanning-faux pas like stained elbows, knees or ankles! Remember the motto: “Wipe on the Gold, wipe off the orange!”
