    Plant Based Ingredients

    French Lilac (Galega Officinalis) – A powerful antioxidant and plant active rich in phenolic compounds that neutralise free radicals while deeply hydrating the skin. A great glow giver.

    Vitamin B3 - Also known as Niacinamide, this much-loved antioxidant excels at skin refining by boosting hydration, repairing and fortifying your skin barrier and improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

    Curcumin – A compound found naturally in Turmeric, this protective antioxidant plant active helps to increase skin elasticity and decrease pigmentation in UV-damaged skin.

    Hyaluronic Acid – A clever moisture-binding molecule that holds 1000 times its own weight in water. It also increases the presence of Retinoic Acid: a hydration booster that helps to minimise fine lines and wrinkles.

    Wakame (Undaria Pinnatifida) – A type of marine Algae (Seaweed), Wakame is rich in antioxidants, trace elements, and minerals and is renowned for its regenerative and skin-smoothing properties.

    Naringenin – Found in most citrus fruits and tomato skin, this antioxidant has anti-inflammatory properties and helps inhibit moisture loss and UVB‐induced wrinkles.

    Peptides – A chain of amino acids, peptides act as the building blocks of important proteins such as Collagen, Elastin, and Keratin. Peptides are responsible for the strength, texture, and resilience of your skin.

    Complete Ingredient Profile:
    Galega Officinalis (French Lilac) Extract, Aqua, Niacinamide, Sodium Hyaluronate, Polysorbate 80, Phenoxyethanol, Curcumin Extract, Glycerin, Nicotinamide Riboside, Ethylhexylglycerin, Parfum, Butylene Glycol, Carbomer, Polysorbate 20, Undaria Pinnatifida Extract, Naringenin, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7

    Use morning and night after cleansing and toning. Massage one to two pumps of the EPI-gN™ Serum onto your face and neck. Follow with your day or evening moisturiser.

    NB: When first using the EPI-gN™ Serum, you might experience mild flaking of the skin within the first week of use, especially if you have dry or quite sensitive skin. This reaction is normal and means the serum is working to create change within your skin at a cellular level.

    Pigmentation Disappearing like Magic!

    I was thrilled to receive the EPI-gn Serum as a gift from my boss and I'm delighted to say the pigmentation across my forehead has almost disappeared! I have struggled with pigmentation for well over 10 years and have finally found a product that delivers! I have been using the serum for approx. 6 weeks morning and night. As a 46 year old woman heading towards the change of life, let's be honest, we all want our skin to glow and this product is my new best friend!

    This works!

    My mother gifted me my first bottle some months ago - thanks mum! Within a week I noticed my skin was smoother and brighter looking. As time has gone by with twice daily use, my skin tone has become noticeably more even and age spots reduced. I’m now on my second bottle and love how my skin looks and feel. I’m buying the eye cream next. Apparently it’s just as amazing. Thanks Dr Derek!

    For me, it is about age lines and clarity. It’s just a beautiful product, the texture is unusual and the skin just sucks it up.

    At 80 years of age, and although a long-term user of the Crème de la Mer products, and well educated in skin care, I have not been comfortable with any of the serums in their range. Through my interest in Cancer Research, I am familiar with the amazing progress into Cancer & Ageing Professor Derek Richard and Clinician, Professor Ken O'Byrne have made. Believe it or not at my age, I am still looking for 'The' product that will make a difference. So when Ellus & Krue launched the EPI-gN serum I gave it a try and here it is - I am amazed that a serum can make a visible difference to my skin, enough to have had comments that are not just the usual 'you look well for your age’ [the last phrase inferred of course]. Since purchasing the serum, I have also purchased another 7 serums as special gifts for my daughter, close friends and colleagues ranging from their 40's-60's. Their feedback also extends from ‘Seriously good’ to ‘OMG Miraculous’. For me, it is about age lines and clarity. It’s just a beautiful product, the texture is unusual and the skin just sucks it up.

    frequently asked questions

    Yes. Every anti-ageing essential has been certified vegan by PETA.

    Absolutely. Every anti-ageing essential has been certified cruelty-free by PETA.

    We don’t use parabens, glycols, or sodium laureth sulphates (SLSs) in any of our anti-ageing essentials, nor will we in the future.

    Yes and we’d love to explain why. We use high concentrations of active natural ingredients that science has proven will create change in the skin – our primary motivation. However, some of these ingredients can smell particularly unpleasant in their natural state, more so when they’re applied to the skin. And this is why we’ve incorporated small amounts of synthetic fragrance into our formulations, with the exception of our Cellular Eye Repair, to help balance their overall scent. Essential oils are sometimes used in skincare to mask the scent of natural ingredients however we find that they can often be the source of irritation in the skin which is why we choose to use small amounts of synthetic fragrance instead.

    Yes we do. We love and respect our environment and are mindful of the impact ELLUS & KRUE has on that environment. That’s why all of our packaging is made from recyclable and renewable materials. We also use plant-based inks, biodegradable wrapping paper, and mail satchels made from 100% recyclable material. We know we’re not perfect but we’re continually looking for ways in which we can lighten our environmental footprint, now and into the future. And we’re always open to suggestions: email us at

    It’s likely you’ll see results from using our ELLUS & KRUE anti-ageing essential after two weeks of use. As with most skincare products, you’ll see the most significant improvement within four weeks of diligent use.

    We are mindful not to offer medical advice and encourage you to speak with your healthcare provider before starting a new skincare regime, particularly one that includes Vitamin A (retinoids). You can find the complete ingredient profile for each of our anti-ageing essentials on our website, as well as on the back of the product packaging.

    For those with dry and/or sensitive skin, mild flakiness is not uncommon when using our EPI-gN™ Serum for the first time. We encourage you to keep using the serum as the flaking is a positive sign that your skin’s natural exfoliating process is working to remove expired skin cells and boost cellular renewal.  

    Yes and we’re glad you asked. Traditionally, toners have been formulated in a liquid texture that you wipe or splash over your skin after cleansing. With our pH Balance Gel Toner, we’ve created an innovative gel texture which comes from the generous amount of hydrating and calming Aloe Vera we use to soothe and balance the skin. We’ve never seen anything (else) quite like it and as such, it’s one of our ELLUS & KRUE signatures.

    TIP: We also like to use pH Balance Gel Toner as an intensely hydrating mask for 10-15 minutes.

    It’s unusual but it can happen. Firstly, ensure you’re using your ELLUS & KRUE anti-ageing essential as directed. Feel free to contact our Customer Support Team or live chat with us on our website. If you’re following our application directions and your skin is reacting then we would advise you to stop using the suspected product immediately and, if your skin condition persists, please consult a healthcare provider. NB: Our ingredient profiles are detailed on our website and on the back of our product packaging.
