Merit is expanding into skin care with its Great Skin collection, featuring the Instant Glow Serum.
The serum is said to be a lightweight, bi-phase formula that instantly hydrates and plumps skin for a smooth, glass-like appearance, while also leaving skin calmer, brighter and more even over time. Ninety-seven percent of clinical trial participants reported that their skin felt softer and moisturized immediately, as well as more hydrated and radiant after four weeks of use.
Great Skin was developed with input from celebrity facialist Biba de Sousa, who is famous for her No List of 73 "clean" but potentially acne-triggering ingredients.
Great Skin will be available at meritbeauty.com and sephora.com in the United States and Canada on October 6, 2022, and at all North American Sephora retail locations on October 14, 2022.
Katherine Power, founder and CEO of Merit, said, "Merit was founded on the principle that better products have the power to simplify your morning routine. The introduction of Great Skin is a pivotal moment for Merit: we've been perfecting the formula for years, and we're very excited to share it with our customers. It's instant gratification that lasts all day—as if you've just completed a multi-step skin care routine without the hassle."
Key ingredients: Four different types of hyaluronic acid, 2% niacinamide, cacao seed extract and Japanese goldthread root.
