Ergothioneine Serum by Dose is a lightweight, easily absorbed, hydrating serum with multiple benefits for ageing skin to help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. DoSe Ergothioneine Serum contains a bioidentical form of L-ergothioneine, an amino acid which displays powerful antioxidant, anti-ageing, collagen enhancing, anti-inflammatory, and super hydrating properties.

Ergothioneine is a natural antioxidant found in mushrooms, as evidenced by its transporter in fibroblasts, which secrete collagen proteins to maintain the structural framework of tissues. This means that it enhances collagen more effectively than numerous other ingredients and it is a more powerful antioxidant than Coq10 and Idebenone. 

The DoSe - Key Actives:

  • Ergothioneine - Protects against oxidative stress and pollution with antioxidant properties to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Superoxide Dismutase - Helps target skin complaints such as uneven pigment distribution caused from urban pollutants
  • Hyaluronic Acid - Helps to bind and draw moisture into the skin for intense hydration. High and low molecular weights of hyaluronic acid target multiple layers of the skin to help with signs of ageing
  • Squalane - Helps to prevent trans epidermal water loss (TEWL) and locks in moisture to impart suppleness and flexibility to the skin

The DoSe Ergothioneine Serum Skin Benefits:

  • Helps target the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Protects against environmental stressors and oxidative damage
  • Nourishes, plumps and moisturises for a more radiant complexion
  • Calms inflamed skin

Ergothioneine face serum is suitable for all skin types including combination & oily skin type, helps to preserve the microbiome on skin, and is not known to cause sensitivity.

How To Use: Remove cap. Apply 1 to 2 pumps of Ergothioneine antioxidant serum morning and evening either directly onto the skin or add to your daily moisturiser. Use after cleansing, before oils and creams. End your morning routine with an SPF.

What are the benefits of Ergothioneine?
Ergothioneine Serum offers several potential benefits for the skin.

Is the Ergothioneine used in DoSe by VH Ergothioneine natural or synthetic?
The Ergothioneine used in our DoSe by VH formulations is synthetic. While natural sources exist and can be obtained, synthesizing Ergothioneine allows for consistent quality and purity, ensuring optimal effectiveness within our formulations.

Why choose synthetic Ergothioneine over natural sources for the DoSe by VH formulation?
Synthetic ergothioneine offers several advantages. Synthetic ergothioneine undergoes rigorous testing and purification processes within the lab, guaranteeing its potency and safety for use in skincare.

It has been shown that synthetic ergothioneine exhibits the same antioxidant properties and skincare benefits as its natural counterpart. The DoSe by VH Ergothioneine formulation is carefully crafted to harness the full potential of synthetic ergothioneine, delivering visible results and promoting skin health.

How can I maximise the longevity and effectiveness of my serum?
Keep away from direct sunlight, avoid extreme temperatures, seal the container properly to minimise air exposure and avoid moisture and humidity and pay attention to the period after opening symbol. Layering products in the correct order, such as applying serums before moisturisers, can optimise their absorption and effectiveness.

Does DoSe by VH replace Garden of Wisdom?
DoSe by VH is a natural evolution of Garden of Wisdom and we are confident that the DoSe by VH products will exceed your expectations, delivering a heightened level of quality and efficacy.  The DoSe serums and oils have been meticulously formulated, and in some cases reformulated by Shabir Daya MRPharmS, our co-founder who originally formulated GOW.  While some formulations share the same INCI, we searched for and incorporated the optimal iterations of each, guaranteeing an enhanced quality.  Not all ingredients are created equally and developments in formulations can change.  It gave us the opportunity to better our offer for our customers who have previously loved GOW.  We listened to the feedback from our customers regarding GOW and the bottles are now glass, which means they are also waterproof for the bathroom.  We believe in constant improvement and staying at the forefront of skincare innovation.
