At Dr. Barbara Sturm, we like to provide you with everything you need to take the best care of your skin. However, there are some hidden gems you may not have yet come across; from the SCALP SERUM, that provides your scalp with intensive health benefits as well as promotes naturally shiny hair, to the V WASH, a gentle cleansing gel that helps maintain the microbiome of intimate female skin, there is so much more to discover. Read on to find out which Dr. Sturm products you didn’t know your skincare regimen needed – until now.
A shower essential, the mild V WASH gently cleanses the intimate area, without removing natural oils or moisture from the skin or disturbing its natural pH (soaps and shower gels can have a high pH which causes irritation and dryness and affects the skin’s bacterial flora). It also contains Pre- and Probiotics that help maintain the microbiome of the skin, Panthenol and Glycerine which soothe and moisturize the skin and Purslane Extract which helps reduce irritation.
Developed to be used in tandem with the V WASH, Dr. Sturm’s V DROPS hydrate, soothe and balance the skin using a combination of advanced ingredient science. Precious Ruby Stone Powder and Pre-and Probiotics support the skin's microbiome and Prickly Pear Extract provides calming and moisturising benefits post-shave. The V DROPS also contain Gurmar Plant Extract – a unique ingredient which, with regular use, can help reduce hair growth and density.
The V Collection Edit
For those who want the cleansing benefits of the V WASH and the after care that the V DROPS offers, this duo is a must-have. Featuring both products, it delivers essential ingredients that help maintain the natural pH of the delicate intimate area, support and balance the microbiome of the skin and soothe any irritation or discomfort. Both products are gynecologically tested and suitable for sensitive skin.
Studies have shown that a healthy, balanced scalp allows for better absorption of the vitamins and minerals that lead to healthy hair growth, which is why Dr. Sturm created the SCALP SERUM; a lightweight, hydrating treatment to help boost scalp health. Its key ingredients work together to calm, hydrate and balance the scalp so if yours is dry, irritated or uncomfortable, this really should play a role in your regime. However, it’s so good, we think it’s a must for everybody.
This is our absolute go-to pre-party / dinner / drinks for its amazing, you-won’t-believe-it-until-you-see-it lifting effects. It might seem magical but its effects are down to a combination of Biopolymers and Microalgae Extract which together, create a weightless film on the skin’s surface that promotes firmness and plumps wrinkles. The effect lasts as long as it’s on your skin – so, until you’re just about ready to head home.
If you didn’t know Dr. Sturm’s most revered innovation, the HYALURONIC SERUM, also came in cosmetics-bag friendly, 2ML sized ampoules, then you’re really missing a trick. Ideal for keeping close at hand when you’re on-the-go, these mini-sized serums instantly boost hydration, calm irritation and smooth fine lines and are ideal for soothing skin post-sun exposure. Top tip: Dr. Sturm keeps her ampoules in the fridge during summer to amplify their skin soothing benefits.
Created to help boost your skin’s nightly renewal process, the NIGHT SERUM is packed with ingredients that help nourish, repair and hydrate your skin whilst you sleep. These smaller sized ampoules offer the same potent formula in travel-friendly, 2ML doses that are ideal for weekends or nights away from home. And they’re the perfect size for slipping into your overnight bag or even your purse so you can maintain your skincare regime wherever you are.
