Key Ingredients



Leontopodium Alpinum

Origin: Plant and Biotech

One of nature’s amazing multi-taskers, Edelweiss is a herbaceous plant that grows on mountain ranges and has evolved to develop a multitude of natural protective defences in order to survive extreme climates.

Edelweiss Meristem Concentrate is one of the most powerful anti-oxidants, 3 times more powerful than Vitamin C or Resveratrol. In Opening Act it offers natural photo-protection from harmful UVB and UVA rays as well as protection from any irritation due to exfoliating. Edelweiss Meristem is known to activate skin proteins proven to promote cell longevity and can positively influence cell regeneration for a healthier, firmer smoother, more luminous skin.



Carica Papaya Linn

Origin: Plant and Lactobacillus

For centuries Papaya has long been recognised to treat, heal and repair the skin, thanks for its impressive antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and wound healing properties. It is currently one of the most researched fruits in health. Elixseri’s Prebiotic Tropical Papaya is incredibly rich in skin friendly phyto-nutrients such as flavonoids and phytoesterols, as well as vitamins and minerals such as potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, beta-carotene, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin C and vitamin A. It has considerable free-radical scavenging properties, with an anti-oxidant power 20 times greater than that of Vitamin E. In skin, Fermented Papaya extract has been proven to prepare skin to better receive and use other active ingredients, exfoliate and resurface, promote skin regeneration, normalise the skin's microbiome and clarify and brighten the complexion.



Morinda Citrifolia Linn

Origin: Plant and Lactobacillus

The Morinda citrifolia (Noni) plant is indigenous to the southern hemisphere and for over 2000 years has been used by ancient healers as the primary ingredient in their medicinal potions. In the noni fruit, around 200 bioactive compounds have been scientifically identified. These actives –potent phyto-chemicals and anti-oxidants, including Anthraquinones, Glycosides, Lignans and Polysaccharides - bestow on the Noni Fruit considerable analgesic, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Noni also exhibits visible firming and anti-wrinkle properties in skin thanks to its proven action on skin’s collagen content. Clinical trials using Noni in cosmeceuticals have revealed fantastic skin benefits: It decongests and reduces inflammation, helps to normalize skin’s sebum production and rebuild the skin’s lipid barrier, and prepares the skin to receive and benefit from other natural ingredients. Our Prebiotic Tropical Noni Ferment acts to balance the skin microbiome, helps to reduce skin shine and improve skin clarity and luminosity.



Origin: Sugar and Biotech

Lactic acid is a natural acid derived from milk, fruit, sugar and other plants and is known for its skin softening abilities. Like it's fellow AHA's, lactic acid works by breaking down the 'glue' between skin cells, causing them to slough off and reveal the newer, shinier, healthier skin underneath, which is perfect for reducing lines, improving skin tone and texture, fading pigmentation and clarifying the skin.

With a reputation for being gentler and less irritating than glycolic acid, Lactic Acid also hydrates, increases natural barrier lipids in the outer layer of skin, and lightens and brightens skin for those with age spots or darkened areas. In Opening Act, Lactic Acid is used at a 3% concentration which is ideal for a powerful but gentle exfoliation, to energize cells and provide a dewy, healthy and clear complexion.



Origin: Plant

REGENINE is a fermented blend of nutrient-rich red grape, wheat bran, apple and lemon extract. The alpha-hydroxy acids found in Regenine (tartaric, citric and malic acids) are fantastic gentle exfoliators, well- suited for sensitive skins, as they are able to remove dead skin cells without any harsh side effects. The exfoliating action of Regenine in Opening Act, combined with the AHA’s and Fruit Enzymes found in Elixseri’s prebiotic Papaya and Noni Ferments, enhances the skin’s cellular metabolism, encouraging the turnover and renewal of new cells. Meanwhile, the ingredient’s protective and repairing phenols of Gallic acid, Catechins, Ferulic acid and Anthocyanins counteract any possible adverse reaction caused by the exfoliation and protects the skin from the anti-ageing effects of free-radical damage. The result is a smooth, fresh and tighter skin tone with a glowing and radiant complexion.


Alpha Hydroxy Acids

Origin: Plant (Fruit)

Elixseri’s Alpha Hydroxy Acids are natural by-products of our Prebiotic Papaya and Noni Ferments. They work to break down and dissolve dead cells and cellular debris by decomposing polysaccharides into smaller fragments, causing a softening and resurfacing effect to the skin.

In Opening Act, our Papaya and Noni AHAs work in synergy with Regenine, a gentle blend of the three AHA’s: tartaric, citric and malic acids and a modest but effective 3% dose of lactic acid, to provide a turbo boost to cellular renewal and help to resurface, polish, smooth and clarify the skin. At our ideal concentrations, the natural AHAs found in our Prebiotic Papaya and Noni will help to energize cells and provide a dewy, healthy and clear complexion.

Fresher, healthier and glowier


2 December, 2020

You know when a product is great when you start using it, dutifully applying it 2-3 times a week as instructed. You get on with life and sort of forget about it then one day (for me two weeks in) you look in the mirror and your reflection stops you in your tracks – why do I look fresher, healthier and glowier? How can this be?! Ah, it must that new serum I’m using. That’s my kinda product, results that are plain to see even in the cold light of day.
Significantly improved skin!


21 November, 2020

The look, fragrance and consistency of the serums are super. I was particularly impressed by the fact that only one drop of serum creates such a great feeling on the skin. The skin feels and looks really fresh. I can only recommend Elixseri, my skin has really improved significantly. (translated from the original German)
Problem areas improved


17 November, 2020

Even the first impression of the products is great. The bottles are very handy and the scent is super pleasant. The products leave a very nice feeling on the skin. After four weeks of use, my skin was better moisturised and looked healthier. My problem areas - cracked, rough skin - have definitely improved. In general, the skin is no longer so rough and feels smoother and softer.
(translated from original German)
Gentlest and most effective exfoliator I've ever tried.


15 November, 2020

I love the Elixeri Serums as they are light, absorbent and most importantly, they are natural. Opening Act is the most effective and gentlest exfoliator I've used to date. Plus it leaves my skin looking fresh and radiant - unlike those heavy scrubs and acid exfoliators which cause my skin to go red and break out in rashes. Highly recommended.
Fresher, smoother, firmer skin


15 November, 2020

I was positively surprised not only by the beautiful, handy bottle and the pleasantly discreet fragrance, but also by the fact that my sensitive skin tolerated the serums of Elixseri very well. After four weeks of use my skin was fresher, smoother and really well moisturised. It also felt firmer and the wrinkles were reduced.(translated from the original German)
My skin no longer feels tight


14 November, 2020

I find the serums of Elixseri very good. My skin is now not so dry and does not tighten. I couldn't see any difference in the wrinkles, but the skin feels softer. It's great that the products have a good smell, because that's very important to me personally when it comes to cosmetics.
Beautiful, matt appearance


13 November, 2020

Elixseri's products (Opening Act, Rescue Diver and Firm Conviction) fit very well in the hand and are very easy to use because the consistency in the dispenser is super. They are easy to spread and can hardly be felt on the skin. However, I needed four pumps of the serums for face and neck. Nevertheless: My neck, my main problem zone regarding slack skin, seems to have become a little firmer. Firm Conviction has given my skin a beautiful, matt appearance and the pores appear finer. I will buy the serums again, because the firmness of my skin has changed noticeably.


13 November, 2020

My skin can no longer do without these serums, my skin is more radiant and I look much younger. (translated from original french)
Great product


9 November, 2020

I'm using it with great results. Highly recommended.
Very gentle radiance revealing scrub


7 November, 2020

This is the gentlest exfoliator I've ever tested. I have very sensitive skin and I can use it every other day. My skin is softer, smoother, but above all more radiant without accentuating my redness. I recommend it to those with sensitive skin. (translated from original French)
visible results


6 November, 2020

I apply this serum 3 nights and my skin looks immediately more bright and more smooth. You can see the difference!
Opening Act regenerates your skin


6 November, 2020

Use two to three times a week to exfoliate and regenerate, followed by Skin Meditation, a real miracle. (translated from original French)
Highly recommended


5 November, 2020

This range is amazing. You really should look no further and invest in these products. I am using opening act and rescue driver as my go to. I use very little else since I saw a recommendation for these serums and I am now a recommender and advocate.
merci encore pour votre ecoute


9 June, 2020

Je suis ravie de l’état de ma peau. Elle est beaucoup plus lumineuse, plus aucun tiraillement et je la sens également beaucoup plus tonique.
Ma peau se porte beaucoup mieux et semble être de plus en plus belle.
Absolutely loving this


13 March, 2020

What a delightful journey I have been on with @elixseri. I am loving the energised “skin I am in”. My face appears fresher, clearer and firmer event the pigmentation on my cheeks is fading and I no longer hide it with blusher.


17 October, 2019

J’ai suivi les conseils d’Elixseri pour ma peau.
J’utilise leurs sérums depuis presqu’un an.
Trois fois par semaine, Opening Act le soir, et après 5 mn pose de Skin Meditation. Le lendemain matin m’a peau est plus belle.
Le matin Firm conviction puis ma crème de jour.
Même mon esthéticienne dit que ma peau est belle.
Depuis que j’utilise les sérums Elixseri, ma peau a rajeuni. Je ne mets plus jamais de fond de teint, mais simplement une poudre de soleil. Je suis enchantée par ces sérums que je recommande vivement.
Best Serums Ever!


7 October, 2019

I have discovered the Elixseri serums a few months ago and have seen their fantastic results on my skin. Can’t stop using them!

Very happy customer

23 September, 2019

There is no doubt for me that Opening Act, Rescue Driver and Smooth Player are my great hereos when it comes to different skin issues like e.g. acne, hyperpigmentation and dull skin. Although using the products only 6 weeks my skin undertook an incredible transformation and is now looking healthy, glowy without pimples, redness and dark spots!

THANKS to the wonderful and unique Elixeri team for the support so far, as customer you are really feeling like a queen / king (not self-evident today) and moreover for the development of such great serums! You really need to give these serums a try, they will not disappoint you!
I use 3 and love them all


31 July, 2019

I am so loyal to this range. I use one or two serums everyday, often layering them instead of using cream. Opening Act keeps my skin looking clean and fresh and I really feel like it boosts all the other serums too. Rescue Diver is an amazing hydrating serum and Firm Conviction really makes my skin feel tight and firmer.
I'm a fan


6 November, 2018

Skin Meditation + Opening Act helped me a lot to balance my adult acne :) I'm a fan!
Great results on sun damaged skin


25 January, 2018

After 2 months of use (3 times a week as advised!) my 'sun marks' have really shrunk and some skin tags have dropped. Very impressed!
It works ....


6 January, 2018

I have started using both this serum and Rescue Diver. I’m 46 and it’s great to find a product that actually works for once.
Everyone says how great my skin looks


10 July, 2017

I am often on building sites and my skin needs regular exfoliation and a deep clean. This has done the trick. Everyone says how great my skin looks.
Great product

I love this product. Just had to let you know that two of my colleagues complimented me on my skin looking fresh and clear, after I was using Opening Act. I will carry on.
Smooth skin


21 May, 2017

This product is great. It goes on very easily. It tingled my eyes because I got it too close, but it was not that uncomfortable. My skin was so smooth and my pores were nice and tight. I kept using it all week and my skin just got better and better. Love it. And love that this is natural.
My New Skin Secret!


21 September, 2016

Thank you so much for letting me be one of the 1st people to test Opening Act. The effect is amazing. At 1st I had a mild break-out but after that I started seeing results and now I'm in love with this serum!
