1. STRÅLA PRODUCT INFORMATION

Our customers should not be forced to compromise their skincare ideals and that is why Stråla One is formulated without compromise. Aktiv-8 Cellulär Komplex (our proprietary complex) was masterfully designed by our team of chemists to amplify the skin’s natural ability to rejuvenate and renew for a youthful feel and appearance. In addition to it’s anti-aging benefits, the chemical properties of Aktiv-8 Cellulär Komplex also enabled us to combine and stabilize large quantities of powerful ingredients that would otherwise be impossible to pack into a single cream.

The complete ingredient list for Stråla products can be found on each respective product  page and on the packaging of each product. If you have any questions about ingredients, feel free to reach out to us at [email protected].

No, Stråla products are formulated without parabens.

So why avoid parabens?

Well, in addition to causing skin irritation, parabens can disrupt hormones in the body and harm fertility and reproductive organs and increase the risk of cancer. Stråla products and the ingredients we use are all tested and safe for consumers.

No, Stråla does not add fragrance to products. We believe in fragrance-free products, which are neutral in scent and can be worn in any environment by anyone without worry of a robust scent.

So why avoid fragrances?

Fragrances can cause skin irritation and even possible skin inflammation. Fragrances are also one of the most common causes for allergic reactions to skincare and personal care products.

No, Stråla products are not and never will be tested on animals.

The rate of usage per bottle will vary based on how often you apply Stråla One and where you decide to apply the product on your skin. Many Stråla One users apply the product to a variety of areas including the face, neck, décolleté, hands, and even arms.

Keep in mind that you only need to apply a small amount of Stråla One to a specific area. Usually only ~0.5 mL of cream is used per application.

For best results, we recommend gently applying one pump of Stråla One twice per day. If you were to utilize Stråla One on the face, neck, and décolleté only, then a 50 mL bottle would last approximately 6 weeks.

Stråla travel and full size products are packaged in airless pumps to help prevent bacterial contamination and oxidation, which can reduce the efficacy of the powerful formulation and impact the results. Bacterial contamination and oxidation usually occur when a cream is exposed to open air or extracted from an open container using hands or an application tool.

No, Stråla One was developed to target underlying causes for the appearance of aging skin and is thus gender neutral. Stråla One does not contain fragrance and works equally well across genders.

Stråla products combine the power of natural ingredients with today’s latest scientific advancements to achieve simple, highly effective formulas. We like to say that “Stråla combines the purity of the past with the innovations of the future.” Rather than eliminate powerful, safe ingredients from a formulation, Stråla is focused on creating an enhanced, non-toxic anti-aging skincare experience.

Labels such as ‘organic’ or ‘natural’ lack a consistent definition and do not speak to a product’s safety or effectiveness. Instead, we are committed to delivering products that are safe, simple, and highly effective.

All skincare products must be used within a defined ‘period after opening’ or POA. The shelf life of a specific product after opening is identified on the product label within the PAO symbol (which resembles a open jar with a number and letter inside). Once opened, the product should be used in its entirety within this period because after this period the quality of the product will begin to deteriorate. For instance, if the POA symbol contains “9M”, then the product should be used within 9 months after opening.

Many customers observe the short-term benefits of Stråla One within the first few days of use. This includes a reduced appearance of fine lines, softening of wrinkles, tightening of the skin, and balanced skin hydration. The results will progressively get better over time. Longer term benefits from Stråla One are often realized after 4 – 8 weeks, which gives the skin enough time to renew to achieve full benefits. For a list of benefits, review our page on the Anti-Aging Benefits of Stråla One.

2. ANTI-AGING SKINCARE ROUTINE

Stråla recommends always using broad spectrum sun protection when exposed to UVA or UVB rays. Sun damage from these rays is a leading cause for accelerated aging and skin issues. Keep in mind that UVA rays can also penetrate windows.

Stråla One does not contain an SPF and will not replace an SPF. The addition of SPF within Stråla One would interfere with the powerful ingredients already included in the formula. Overall, we recommend that an SPF be applied as the last step in your day time skincare routine and after Stråla One has been fully absorbed by the skin.  Stay safe in the sun and avoid skin damage.

Gently apply a small amount of Stråla One to clean, dry skin and massage in upward strokes on to the face, neck, and décolletage. You can also apply Stråla One to the back of your hands, arms, and/or any other areas in need of rejuvenation. For the fragile eye area, gently dab Stråla One on to the surrounding area and gently massage. Stråla One will absorb quickly and begin working immediately.

For best results, use both morning and evening.

Stråla One combines the power of the following products into a single highly effective formula:

  • Day Cream
  • Night Cream
  • Vitamin-C Serum / Brightener
  • Hyaluronic Acid Serum
  • Anti-Aging Serum
  • Eye Serum / Cream
  • Retinol
  • Neck and Décolleté Cream

Stråla One was developed to be the core of your anti-aging skincare routine. Both to simplify and enhance skin rejuvenation.

An example 90-second Stråla One anti-aging skincare regimen follows:

  1. Cleanse your skin with your favorite cleanser to remove any cosmetics, oils, and dirt from your pores.
  2. When your skin is cleansed and dry, gently apply a small amount of Stråla One to your face, neck, décolleté, around your eyes, and any other skin area in need of rejuvenation, hydration, tightening, and smoothing.
  3. (In the morning or if anticipating sunlight exposure) When Stråla One is completely absorbed, protect your skin by applying your favorite broad spectrum SPF.

We also recommend that you exfoliate your skin at least once per week.

Stråla One may be applied to your face, around your eyes, lips, neck, décolleté, back of hands, arms, or any other safe skin area in need of rejuvenation, tightening, lifting, and hydration.

Yes, although Stråla One is an “all-in-one” / comprehensive rejuvenation product, it can be used with other common skincare products. Primarily, if you are seeking to rotate products. We do, however, recommend testing skin care product combinations on the inside of your forearm  to check for any adverse reaction prior to applying Stråla One to the face.

If you are considering a prescription skincare product to use in combination with Stråla One, we suggest that you first receive approval from a physician.

The skin under and around each eye is very fragile. We recommend using your pinky finger to dot Stråla One along the edge of your orbital bone (located directly under the eye). A single dot should be sufficient to cover the area. Gently pat Stråla One into the skin, staying around the edge of the bone.

Please avoid your eye lids and, of course, do not get Stråla One in to your eyes. As incorrect application may cause irritation to occur.
