NEW RATIONALE Antioxidant Hydrogel

NEW RATIONALE Antioxidant Hydrogel

A comforting skin identical hydrator that boasts innovative Ceramic Shield; an ultrafine mesh of ceramic microspheres that provide skin with a physical shield against pollution. Australian SolarProtective Botanicals defend against InfraRed Radiation while Essential Skin Minerals restore hydration levels and clarity. Brightness boosted and radiance reactivated.


  • Stimulates collagen production and prevents glycation by defending against UV-induced free-radical damage as well as oxidative stress caused by pollution exposure
  • Prevents hyperpigmentation by suppressing abnormal melanin production in the basal layers
  • Antioxidant skin nourishment
  • Non comedogenic
  • Brightens post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIHP)
  • Balances skin and fortifies barrier resilience


  • Apply 1 pump in the morning directly following other daytime serums and smooth over face, neck, décolletage and backs of hands
  • Directly follow with your remaining RATIONALE daytime prescription

Active Ingredients

  • Ectoin- a powerful molecule that boosts the skin's own natural oxidative stress protection system; shields skin cells against environmental aggressors, including sunlight- particularly; UVB and UVA irradiation, pollution, dryness and extreme temperatures
  • L-Carnosine- a skin identical anti-aging peptide, which stimulates collagen synthesis and supports skin volume and elasticity; anti-glycation active that also acts against damages induced by InfraRed radiation
  • Sodium Potassium Aluminium Silicate- ceramic microspheres coated in SiO2 and TiO2, which provides a physical shield that protects skin from pollution; the unique shape of the substrate and the sophisticated coating technology also provides simultaneous light diffusing and mattifying properties
  • Melanin- a potent Antioxidant skin pigment, both protective and rejuvenating in its effect on human skin; provides complete Solar Constant Protection; powerful anti-inflammatory active that works to reduce redness, boost barrier function and promote overall skin health
  • Vitamin A (Retinol)- time-dose release of t his primary retinoid throughout the epidermis and dermis allows skin to convert to relevant metabolites as required; stimulates connective tissue production to retain firmness and elasticity; controls abnormal melanin production within the skin; smooths skin texture and encourages radiance by increasing cell turnover to a healthy rate
  • Vitamin C Complex (Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate + Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate)- hydrophilic and lipophilic properties allow antioxidants to penetrate both water and oil soluble compartments of the skin; brightens skin tone by controlling melanogenesis of skin cells to even out irregularities in pigmentation; protects against cellular DNA damage caused by the sun; stimulates fibroblast activity and connective tissue synthesis
  • Vitamin E (Tocopherols + Tocotrienols)- enhances the production of NMFs within the skin; reduces erythema and oedema within the skin, encouraging natural healing processes and preventing against PIHP
  • Anti-Glycation Actives (Glutathione, Superoxide Dismutase + Ubiquinone - Coenzyme Q10)- powerful antioxidants which work to deactivate the harmful effects of highly destructive free radicals, preventing glycation processes by protecting collagen and elastin degradation caused by solar damage; Australian SolarProtective Botanicals; environmentally resilient Australian plant species prevent glycation and oxidation by neutralizing harmful free radical molecules


  • 'The light gel-like consistency makes applying it a pleasure'. Daria (NSW)
  • 'My clients love the lightweight feel of this product on their skin. It protects them from the harsh Queensland sun and the heat but doesn't feel too heavy when the humidity is high'. Gemma (RATIONALE Brisbane)
