47 Skin Silver Chitosan Regenerating Serum review

Hey guys! It's cold again, so I know that we're all on the hunt for something that is going to protect our skin from environmental damage, keep it looking youthful, hydrated and luminous as well as fighting any pesky scarring or acne. Also, if you’re a regular reader of the blog then I’m sure that you’re aware of how much I love to feature newer or lesser known brands, and I absolutely love the story behind the brand featured into today’s post.

47 Skin was only founded in 2017 thanks to an accidental scientific breakthrough. That’s right, an accident. A British scientist - who was actually working on water purification experiments - tried mixing an atom of silver with chitosan, a type of sugar that is derived from shellfish and used in medicine. This created a new formula that boasts antibacterial and protective qualities. It went on to be tested for use in skincare and it was found to be beneficial for helping acne, boosting skin regeneration properties, reducing the signs of ageing and reducing inflammation.

47 Skin was then born to get this new, revolutionary formula out to consumers. They currently sell 4 products that all include the patented formula, and today I shall be featuring one of them: the 47 Skin Silver Chitosan Regenerative Serum.

The Silver Chitosan Regenerative Serum is designed to create a protective barrier on the skin, help skin damaged by UV or environmental factors to heal, soften the appearance of scars and to regenerate surface skin cells.

It comes packaged in an orange-brown bottle that holds 30ml of product with a pump lid and a sticker on the front with product information. The product itself is white and watery in consistency. The bottle then comes packaged in a sleek, white box. The overall look of the product is minimalist yet classy.

If you’d like to learn a bit more about the science behind this patented formula, you can check it out on the 47 Skin website.

Application and Results:

To use, apply to clean, dry skin in the morning and night. Follow up with the rest of your skincare routine.

It has a beautiful scent to it which isn’t overwhelming. It is subtle, but it smells good. I’d assume that this is thanks to the added essential oils. 

The consistency is fairly watery, but thick enough to not drip through your fingers which can waste it or make a mess. It also means that a little amount of product goes a long way. 

The skin can feel a little greasy for a moment after applying, but this eases up as you let it sink in and you continue with the rest of your skincare routine.

When applied, it has a firming effect which is nice. It’s a comfortable firm and not tight. It also leaves the skin feeling well hydrated and looking luminous, but not in a greasy way. 

I’ve found that it’s been doing a great job at helping blemishes to heal and for redness to disappear. It seems to significantly speed up the healing process.

So far I’ve been using this product for two weeks, and I’ve been really liking the results. This is a serum that gets straight to work and is pretty speedy with its results. After just this short amount of time it has already been providing on its promises, so I’m really looking forward to seeing the continuation of the results.

I’d say that this serum is best suited to those with oily, blemish-prone skin, but if you have dry and blemish-prone skin then you can still reap the benefits. You would need something more moisturising to follow up with though I would imagine.

So yes, overall, I’m very impressed! Sometimes the best things in life can be accidental and I think that 47 Skin have done a great job by capitalising on this happy accident. 

I’m really looking forward to seeing what other types of products can come from this brand, if any, and I hope that you guys are equally as excited to see where it goes from here too.

Product Rating: 8/10
