Here’s how our targeted skin elixir compares to our iconic super greens.
We know just how loved both The Super Elixir™ and The Skin Elixir are amongst our WelleCommunity for their skin-support. But after a lot of questions recently, we wanted to highlight the benefits of both, how they work and whether they can be taken together (spoiler alert: they can!).
What does The Super Elixir™ do, versus The Skin Elixir?
“The Super Elixir™ is our iconic super greens powder, which is a foundational product that supports all 11 systems of the body, from your immune and digestive systems to your hair, skin and nails,” explains WelleCo founder Elle Macpherson. “Taking inspiration from our iconic premium greens, The Skin Elixir is a vegan blend of greens and skin-supporting ingredients in a convenient capsule. Two capsules daily supports healthy, glowing skin, collagen formation, skin healing and regeneration and skin firmness and elasticity while reducing free radicals formed in the body.”
Think of The Super Elixir™ as an all-rounder – a complete solution for your entire body, with your daily dose of wholefoods, herbal extracts, vitamins, minerals, and probiotics that can address everything from your energy levels to your immune system.
Meanwhile The Skin Elixir offers targeted support, with ingredients specifically chosen to support healthy, glowing skin.
How do the ingredients differ between The Super Elixir™ and The Skin Elixir?
As our daily all-in-one, The Super Elixir™ contains more than 40 ingredients that make up our greens, beauty, digestive and immunity blends. We chose to include Horsetail Herb Extract for its natural silica content, which helps to support the production of healthy connective tissue and the formation of collagen for skin, hair and nails health.
It also contains antioxidant powders, such as Acai, Pomegranate and Grape Seed, with a combination of Zinc, Shiitake and Maitake Mushroom Powders to help maintain immune function and provide a source of fibre, B vitamins and amino acids.
Formulated with 18 ingredients, The Skin Elixir capsules take inspiration from The Super Elixir™ with a powerful blend of natural greens and skin-supporting vitamins and minerals. Barley grass, broccoli, and spinach work to nourish skin from within, while antioxidants such as pomegranate, acai, and green tea to help protect the skin against environmental aggressors and free radical damage.
We’ve also included Vitamin C, B3, B6, E, copper and zinc to support skin healing and regeneration, collagen formation, and maintain skin firmness and elasticity. Acerola Cherry provides a natural source of vitamin C to support bright, healthy skin, while a gut blend of turmeric, black pepper, papaya, methionine, and aloe works to promote healthy digestion* and support the gut-skin connection.
Can I take The Skin Elixir in addition to The Super Elixir™?
Of course! Which product you use is entirely your choice and depends on your individual needs. Both The Skin Elixir and The Super Elixir™ can be enjoyed individually, or you can choose to use them together as complementary support on your beauty-through-wellness journey.
However, as every person is different, we do always recommend consulting your Primary Healthcare Professional, such as your GP, Naturopath or Nutritionist, to discuss your supplementary routine first. Even more so if you have any underlying health conditions or are on pharmaceutical medication – as they can advise on what suits your individual needs.
How do I take The Skin Elixir versus The Super Elixir™?
We recommend taking both The Skin Elixir and The Super Elixir™ in the morning. As The Super Elixir™ is a powder, you can take two teaspoons in water or add it into your morning smoothie for breakfast. It’s a great way to start your morning and enhance your energy levels for the day ahead.
For The Skin Elixir, we advise taking your two capsules after breakfast, as an ingredient like zinc shouldn’t be taken on an empty stomach. As they come in capsule format, they’re easy to travel with or throw in your bag for when you don’t have time to take them at home.
For the ultimate glow, kickstart your system with The Super Elixir™ at breakfast, followed by The Skin Elixir capsules. Taking both as part of your daily routine will ensure you’re completely supported from soul to skin.
