Uneven skin colour: prevention and treatment

11 June 2018
What's New

Your skin is unavoidably exposed to factors that may result in more melanin being produced in certain areas. This uneven darkening of the skin is known as hyperpigmentation. The darker spots or patches can give you an untidy look that is sometimes associated with ageing. The good news is that if you know the causes, you can minimise the formation of dark spots. There are also treatments available to reverse the damage.

How is hyperpigmentation created?

Some of the factors that cause the pigment responsible for skin and hair colour to be produced unevenly over the skin are:

  1. Lesions from acne or scarring
  2. Increased hormone stimulation during pregnancy or as a reaction to medication
  3. Exposure to UV light
  4. Toxins in the air

Prevention and treatment of hyperpigmentation

The unflattering complexion resulting from an overproduction of melanin can be avoided by drinking lots of water, applying sunscreen daily, exfoliating, moisturising even when fighting acne, cleansing every day and using natural ingredients that will give your skin a smooth appearance.

Décaar’s Brightening Line

In Décaar we have a series of products for obtaining a high definition look of clarity and brightness: Décaar’s Brightening Line.

Décaar has solved the mystery of balancing two different skin types

4 June 2018
What's New

How to balance two different skin types can seem like a mystery, but unlocking this mystery is easier than you might think. Décaar’s Oily and Combination skin series uses active ingredients of the lightest weight with very effective formulas to balance this skin condition. There are two products in this series: Décaar’s Calming Mask and Rebalancing Cream 24hr.

The secret of our Calming Mask

Décaar’s Calming Mask removes dead cells, invigorates the skin and leaves it with a replenished, clean and radiant complexion. It reduces inflammation and improves blood circulation of the skin. The advanced formula revitalises the skin from all sorts of damage including sun damage, excoriation, inflammatory dermatosis, including rosacea.

The active ingredients are kaolin, zinc oxide and menthol.

two different skin types


Kaolin is a clay mineral found in nature. It is used in skincare products for its absorbent properties. That is why it is used in masks for oily skin. The right proportion of kaolin in combination with other ingredients can be very benign.

Zinc oxide

Zinc oxide is a white powder, insoluble in water, that helps treat and prevent acne by reducing bacterial activity, regulating sebum production and acting as an astringent. It reduces inflammation and works even on acne that has become antibiotic resistant.


Menthol is derived from peppermint. Its refreshing and toning action soothes itchiness, redness and sunburn. It also deeply cleanses skin and tightens pores. Its purifying and astringent properties make it perfect on oily or blemished skin. It regulates sebum and cleanses at the same time.

Rebalancing cream 24hr

Light cream enriched with active components that soothe and moisturise the skin whilst protecting it against blackheads and eczemas. It contains biopolymers that convert sebum into invisible micro granules to ensure the anti-shine effect.

Active ingredients: fermented oil from Angelica gigas, Coconut Oil, Epigallocatechin gallate.

Fermented oil from Angelica gigas

This fermented oil from this herb used in traditional Korean medicine, it has anti-inflammatory properties and accelerates skin collagen production.

Coconut oil

Coconut oil contains medium chain fatty acids that are metabolized into potent antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal substances in the body. It fights some of the underlying causes of acne like candida overgrowth.

Epigallocatechin gallate

This substance is a major polyphenol in green tea. It fights the bacteria that are responsible for acne and is well tolerated by the skin.

Plant extracts that benefit your skin

28 May 2018
What's New

There are many plant extracts that are good for your skin. Most cosmetic and cosmeceutical products today contain some sort of natural ingredient, mainly obtained from some part of a plant.

In Décaar we have incorporated beneficial extracts obtained from the seeds, fruits, leaves or roots that are gentle on the skin and are very efficient at healing certain skin conditions or slowing ageing signs.

Five plant extracts used in Décaar products

Aloe barbadensis

Aloe barbadensis is one of the best aloes that has soothing and antioxidant properties and serves as a hydrating agent for the skin. It provides a refreshing sensation that you can experience when you clean your skin with our Oxygen or Natural Exfoliating scrubs. It is also found in our Pure Cleansing Gel, a gentle cleanser for oily skin.

plant extracts

Swiss Apple

Stem cells from the Swiss apple Uttwiler Spätlauber, a rare variety of Malus domestica, not only has the potent antioxidant abilities that benefit the skin by limiting the production of damaging free radicals, it also protects it from the effect of UV radiation and delays deterioration of the cells. This efficient wrinkle reductor is one of the components of Décaar’s Oxygen serum. It not only decreases the signs of ageing but it is also suitable for treating skin conditions like eczema.


Bearberry or Arbutin exhibits antioxidant activity and most notably, its effectiveness for brightening an uneven skin tone has been proven by an increasing amount of research. It also improves the appearance of dark spots from unprotected sun exposure or body changes such as those that occur during pregnancy. You can benefit from it in Décaar’s Brightening Mask.

Argan oil

This is a non-fragrant oil expressed from the kernels of argan trees, Argania espinosa. Argan oil contains several beneficial fatty acids for the skin, including oleic, palmitic and linoleic acid. It is a good source of antioxidant vitamin E. It is also a good emollient that we include in Décaar’s Lift Firming Eye Cream.

Green tea

Green tea or Camellia sinensis extracts applied topically have many benefits for the skin, including anti-ageing properties. Its polyphenols possess potent antioxidant and skin-soothing properties. It can improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin. In Décaar we combine it with other antioxidants and you can benefit from it in our Natural Exfoliation Scrub.

Less makeup more skin: the ultimate goal

A healthy looking skin needs no masking away. It is never too late to heal those imperfections you have been covering with makeup to conform to social pressures. Let us guide you so you can “Dare to be yourself” and show with pride the result of proper care to your body’s largest organ: the skin.

Say goodbye to concealing every day

Imagine one day waking up and being able to let your skin breathe without having to apply primer, concealer and foundation to cover skin flaws like spots, pimples and under eye bags. Wouldn’t it be great if you could just step out with less makeup and more of a bare healthy looking skin?

This coloured sun cream is quickly absorbed without any greasiness, leaving a refreshing, smooth skin. Its tone changes and adapts to the natural skin colour with natural light. Any freckles, blackheads or dark skin will lighten up.

Toxins are everywhere

Regardless of where you live, your skin is exposed to toxins from within your body and from your surroundings. In some places, the water carries salts or metals that can contribute to clogged pores or uneven skin colour. Suspended particles in the air that you breathe in, can act as vessels to tiny poisonous substances. And then there is stress, the ultimate source of body toxins. All these particles move around in your bloodstream and there is a high chance for some to damage your, otherwise, flawless skin.

Is it possible to heal years of skin damage?

Cosmeceuticals like those manufactured by Décaar, aim at healing the skin. Exfoliation with natural products like the ones in our Algae Peeling Regime have proven to effectively treat even the most sensitive skin types. By removing dead cells that could result in clogged pores, leading to blemishes and acne, you allow the most suitable skincare product to penetrate and actively beautify your skin.

Protect your skin from the Sun with Décaar

14 May 2018
What's New

Any skincare routine during the day must finish with the application of a sunblock product. It is essential to protect your skin by shielding it from the harsh rays of the Sun. This need is not restricted to the Summer months but it becomes more apparent when we expose ourselves to the warmth of our closest star.

Benefits of applying a sunscreen

Some of the benefits of shielding your skin with a sunscreen are:

  1. Block the harmful rays of the Sun from penetrating the skin and triggering skin disorders.
  2. Prevent premature skin ageing in the form of wrinkles and fine lines.
  3. Prevent sun ray induced damages such as blotchiness, acne and sunburns.
  4. Maintenance of structure of essential skin proteins such as collagen and elastin.

Décaar cosmetics offers the following sunscreen options:

Oxygen Cream SPF 30

A high protective cream with UV filters that keeps the skin looking and feeling hydrated and energised while it can breathe freely. Helps resist against wrinkles and recover from the signs of everyday life. Its active ingredient delivers Oxygen to the skin and improves its vitality.

BB Oxygen Cream SPF 50

This coloured sun cream is quickly absorbed without any greasiness, leaving a refreshing, smooth skin. Its tone changes and adapts to the natural skin colour with natural light. Any freckles, blackheads or dark skin will lighten up.  


Brightening Cream SPF 50

Contains a stable system of UVB, UVA, IR and VIS protective filters. Its natural knotweed extract is rich in resveratrol, a highly antioxidant substance that is very efficient at preventing skin ageing. The D3 StimuLight is a light-activated vitamin D precursor, necessary in maintaining the biological balance between UV protection and the body’s need for vitamin D. Ectoin prevents photo-ageing and damage of cell parts, and it moisturises perfectly and eliminates dark spots.

Alternatives to animal testing

7 May 2018
What's New

There is no valid reason today to test products for human use on animals. The alternatives to animal testing are readily available and have proven to be more accurate and reliable than using guinea pigs or rabbits.

Synthetic skin

There are a few options available of models that resemble the physical and chemical structure of human skin. Some of them are three dimensional real structures and others contain all the mathematical information in a computer.

Scientists have made human cells grow into tiny skin tissue in test tubes in the laboratory. This in vitro possibility allows the cosmeceutical formulator to test for skin corrosivity and irritation. The same test can be done virtually using sophisticated correlation models that look at the reaction of the skin to new substances with an accuracy of 90 to 95%

no animal testing

Donated skin

It is possible to obtain human skin donated from a cosmetic surgical procedure or even post-mortem. There are companies that place the tissue in kits for the skincare industry to use instead or the cruel rabbit irritation tests.

Microdosing on human volunteers

Microdosing consists in applying very low quantities of a substance on the skin of human volunteers to test the effects at the cellular level. This is a very effective way to look at the reaction of different types of skin to a cosmeceutical product that replaces tests on animals.

In Décaar there is zero animal cruelty

Décaar’s no animal testing policy is in line with our philosophy of creating safe and efficient skincare products and cabin treatments to satisfy the most specific skin types and concerns.
