Stratum C Ingredients, their uses and if you have sensitive skin

We have listed the most common questions below. The sections above will each direct you to more specific questions about the Stratum C range. If there is a question not listed and you would like to find out more information, please contact us


Can non-menopausal and peri-menopausal women use Stratum C?     

There is nothing harmful in Stratum C and in fact all women would benefit from the moisturising and anti-ageing effect of the ingredients. Menopause is the time when the benefits are optimal.     

How is Stratum C different to other high street anti-ageing creams?      

Stratum C Protect Cream has a higher percentage of active and nutritional ingredients and only 45% Aqua (water) content, as opposed to many high street brands that have can average 90% water. Stratum C Repair Serum has low (18%) water content and is a unique formulation that is exclusive to Forme Labs Ltd and is scientifically proven to be effective. Both products are first and foremost beautiful and sumptuous moisturizers, leaving the skin radiant, cool and rejuvenated, a feeling that you will love.     

Is Stratum C an alternative to HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy)?      

No, Stratum C is not an alternative to HRT. Stratum C does not contain any hormones and should only be used to effectively reduce wrinkles in your skin that are commonly formed as a result of menopause and protect your skin from further wrinkle formation. If you are thinking about stopping your HRT, you should seek advice from a doctor.       

How do I store my Stratum C products?      

There are no special directions for storage. Once open the product remains in optimal condition for 6 months at an average temperature of 25 degrees centigrade.     

Do Stratum C products have an expiry date?      

Some of the active and natural ingredients do contribute to the products having a shelf life. The expiry date of each product is 3 years from manufacture and the expiry date is printed on the base of the container along with the LOT number so that we can trace the product.      

Is Stratum C tested on animals?     

Absolutely not. None of our products or their raw materials are tested on animals.
