Shark Sauce™ does not contain sharks, shark extract, shark wings, or any other shark derivatives. Its name comes from a nickname of one of our muses, Fifty Shades of Snail, for whom it was originally created.
Shark Sauce™ is a hydrating serum that contains 5% Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) and 3% N-Acetyl Glucosamine, which work together synergistically to fight hyperpigmentation. They, along with Panthenol (Vitamin B5), also work to help improve your skin barrier.
Licorice Root and Green Tea Extracts soothe and brighten skin, while Hyaluronic Acid and Sodium Lactate (the sodium salt of Lactic Acid, a popular AHA) hydrate. The Sea Kelp Bioferment is the result of sea kelp fermented with Lactobacillus, which breaks it down into more bioavailable compounds for your skin to use. It is a natural film former, and functions as a great oil-free moisturizer.
Please always patch test any new products. Our products have very concentrated ingredients, so please patch test to make sure you do not have any sensitivities to any of them. This product does not cause purging, so if you experience breakouts or irritation, please discontinue use. There is a Sample/Travel Sized version to try if you are unsure of your ingredient sensitivities.
This product does not contain any photosensitizing ingredients, but the most vital and effective anti-aging step in your routine will always be sunscreen. Please always use ( the correct amount of) sunscreen for best results in fading hyperpigmentation and anti-aging.
This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent disease. Always consult with your professional skin care provider. This does not contain sharks. This does contain parabens, as they are considered very safe and effective preservatives. It does not have any fragrances, and some people have reported a slight smell (due to the sodium lactate, which comes from sour milk - some people can smell it more strongly than others).
No returns or exchanges will be offered, so please consider this before purchasing.
Many people keep their Shark Sauces in their refrigerators to prolong use and reduce oxidation. Some also choose to keep it in a medicine cabinet where it stays in the dark. Neither of these are required, but are recommended.
