Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring carbohydrate that is found in almost every tissue the human body. It is one of the most powerful humectants found in nature and aids in reducing transepidermal water loss (TEWL) when applied topically to skin. Hyaluronic acid contributes to a plumping effect and augments the smoothing effect of the peptides.

Advanced Peptides

Advanced Peptides

Peptides are amino acids that build proteins (collagen, elastin) essential for skin health. When applied topically to the skin, peptides trigger skin cells to perform specific functions such as building collagen and elastin. An increased production of these proteins provide powerful age-softening properties by increasing skins elasticity and firmness and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Quannessence Skincare uses a multitude of different peptides, all with varied functions, to encourage skin health and vitality.

Oat Beta Glucan

Oat beta glucan is a soluble fiber found in the cell walls of oat kernels. As a natural polymer, beta glucan stimulates the immune system and is used in products designed to help heal wounds faster.

Niacinamide is the physiologically active form of niacin (vitamin B3), an effective, active ingredient with an extraordinary breadth of cutaneous benefits. Aging fibroblasts secrete less collagen than young cells, and topically applied niacinamide has been shown to stimulate new collagen synthesis. Niacinamide can cause vasodilation of cutaneous tissues resulting in increased blood flow and a warm, tingly feeling.

Quannessence Revitalizing Cream is excellent.

My aesthetician used and recommended the Alchemist Revitalizing Cream for me and I’ve been using it for years. It is perfect for my at times sensitive skin. I feel hydrated and it’s not heavy. Such a great product. And how wonderful that it is made in the Maritimes!

Compromised Skin Kit
Ricki Clarke
6 years

I've been using this product for 6 years. When I started I had really bad acne and it cleared up within a week. I've used it constantly since. When I've run out of this product before buying more, my skin has gotten really bad acne again--and been cleared up when I got more ointment. I highly recommend compromised skin ointment. I couldn't live without it.

Great Product !! Really Enjoying !!!

I love the light yet rich texture of this cream. It nourishes my skin deeply and I never fail to use it, no matter how tired I feel at the end of the day during my nighttime cleansing routine! You will not regret discovering this remarkable, local company!

QButter Body Butter

Actually, I had given some Body Butter to our daughter who lives in BC and she loved it! Recently she asked me if I could still get it and so I ordered a couple of jars and forwarded them to her. I am always impressed with your notifications of order received, order shipped and when I should expect it. Your follow up is impeccable and I certainly appreciate it! Thank you!

Amazing on sensitive skin

I have tried to use numerous high end exfoliating scrubs over the years and they all irritated my skin. This little Gem however is amazing skin feels great refreshed and glowing. Pleased it doesn’t not irritate this 48yr old redheads skin. I would highly recommend I’ve been using for a few years now and have turned some friends into it they also love it.
