Richard Parker’s Essential Six Philosophy
80% of facial ageing is caused by the sun. The Rationale Essential Six can prevent and repair most of this damage, restoring skin radiance. The Essential Six draws on world-leading Australian solar skincare research to deliver all of the actives you need to protect and repair sun damage and maintain healthy, glowing skin for life. We’ve also incorporated the unique PhotoProtective and PhotoRepair biotechnology of native Australian botanicals into our formulas for the ultimate solar defence and repair. Formulated with our revolutionary ISOTROPIC technology, these skin synchronised formulas work synergistically to deliver the perfect combination of active ingredients at the correct concentration to deliver luminous skin for life.
