Serum Versus Day and Night Cream - What's the Difference?

Serum Versus Day and Night Cream - What's the Difference?

How Is Anti-aging Serum Different Than a Day and Night Face Cream?

Lots of women wonder when they should be using a serum versus a face cream. It’s a great question and hopefully I can make the difference clear.

Serums are highly concentrated formulations. They are extremely potent because they only contain the active ingredients. That’s not to say creams and lotions are ineffective. They just have a different purpose. Creams and lotions are designed to refresh and hydrate and form a barrier so your skin retains the moisture and makes you look younger.

A serum is designed to deliver the active ingredients without extra liquid. They absorb quickly and go to work. A well-designed serum will provide copious skin nutrition and natural chemicals to help your skin regenerate. Oxidative stress contributes to the aging process. A good natural serum will have high levels of anti-oxidants to combat oxidative stress.  Oxidative stress leads to aging skin. The Australian native super fruit ingredients we use have very high levels of anti-oxidants, bioactive phytochemicals, minerals and vitamins to give you skin more comprehensive protection from oxidative stress. The result is to slow and possibly reverse the aging process.

So, if it’s powerful anti-aging you are looking for we have two proprietary anti-aging serums that can be used alone or in tandem with our creams and lotions. Our serums contain our highly effective Australian super fruits fusion and other well know botanicals found in our other products.

  • Lemon Myrtle & Lavender Anti-Aging Youth Serum
  • Kakadu Plum Powerhouse Anti-aging Serum Concentrate

 Let’s compare the two.

Lemon Myrtle & Lavender Anti-Aging Youth Serum

This serum includes our super fruits triple fusion of Kakadu Plum, Quandong and Lilly Pilly. These provide the anti-oxidant and nutrient power while Lemon Myrtle provides anti-bacterial and cleansing effect. An excellent natural cleanser and anti-bacterial agent for acne sufferers, Lemon Myrtle combines well with European Lavender to provide the most delectable fragrance in this peerless anti-aging fusion.

All these vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients combine to help your skin revitalize its collagen production, cell rejuvenation, skin condition, tone and youthful complexion.

Another wonderful ingredient we use, in this serum, is Australian Sandalwood Seed Oil, which is rich in Ximenynic Acid. Unlike other more common carrier oils this is a potent anti-inflammatory agent and skin protectant, preventing collagen loss and reducing skin oiliness.  To that we add active Lingonberry stem cells which contain powerful natural polyphenols to help protect your skin, rejuvenate and improve tone and reduce wrinkles.

This serum turns back the clock by:

  • Improving skin tone
  • Lightening sunspots
  • Softening roughness
  • Reducing oiliness
  • Tightening pores
  • Cleansing and refreshing


Kakadu Plum Powerhouse Anti-Aging Serum Concentrate

This serum continues to impress as a phenomenal skin treatment. Crammed with Kakadu Plum, Australian Quandong, undiluted pharmaceutical grade Resveratrol, Micro Algae, Oats, and Jojoba oil round out the choice botanicals. Truly an anti-aging powerhouse of goodness for your skin!

It contains tons of other vital nutrients for healthy skin condition and youthful complexion, immune system boosters including Rutin which helps reduce dark under eye circles and strengthens the skin from the effects of aging.

And then there is Resveratrol! Resveratrol is a naturally occurring substance in red grape skins and is a well-known and powerful anti-oxidant. Studies show it as a potent and efficient free radical scavenger making it highly effective in combating skin damage and aging.  It is also believed to stimulate new cell growth as well as collagen production.

This serum slows down the aging process by:

  • Helping repair UV damage
  • Fading fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hydrating dry, flaky skin
  • Smoothing uneven tone
  • Erasing blotchiness 
  • Rejuvenating and restoring skin health


If this is the first time you have visited my blog, you probably don’t know why Australian Superfruits for skin care are so effective. Here’s why!

What’s The Big Deal About Australian Superfruits for Skin Care?

These plants have evolved into the most efficient nutrient-suppliers found anywhere on earth. The harsh environment in Australia has forced the native flora to deliver vitamins and minerals in concentrations that are unbelievably potent.  For example, the Kakadu Plum has 100 times the vitamin C as an orange! (That’s been scientifically verified—don’t take my word for it.). In fact, the Australian Government commissioned a study in 2009 to asses the health benefits of Australian native outback fruits. The conclusion was that they were off the charts with good things which were highly beneficial to health and wellness.

We combine the Australian Superfruits with newly discovered Aussie essential oils that have enticing fragrances as well as additional youth-enhancing properties. 

If you’ve never treated your skin to a serum before, here is your chance. Don’t forgo the anti-aging benefits of our popular serums. Most high-end skin care lines have a serum in their skin care suite. These serums also boost the value of your night and day creams making them even more effective.  But you won’t find anyone else using the Australian Superfruits and Aussie botanicals like we do. We on the leading edge of natural and botanical skin care science and plan to stay that way.
