Méla Skin Reset

Super Skin Hydrator
Title
Best for dehydrated, dull, stressed skin.
Title
£47.00

Mela is the skin's best ally. This Super Hydrator replenishes, restores, tones, and rejuvenates your skin from dawn to dusk.

It's a silky, ultra-nourishing, deeply quenching, and skin-soothing biocompatible essence.

Let's face it: dehydration isn't just a minor inconvenience. It's one of the main root causes of all those persistent skin challenges faced by darker Skin Tones – think inflammation, dullness, excess sebum production, spiraling into clogged pores and subsequent breakouts, followed by the stubborn hyperpigmentation marking the passing of each breakout, and the overall discomfort to the skin. 

This isn't just distressing; it's a relentless cycle that demands a targeted, effective solution. –Mela Skin Reset stands as the scientific breakthrough to decisively clap back at dehydration.

Now, when it comes to deeply hydrating darker skin tones, it has to be done right! 

The outer skin layer is denser, and that comes with its own set of unique advantages and challenges. 

 

Pro’s? More collagen and elastin which means-  a natural advantage when it comes to ageing. 

Con’s? Delivering vital nutrients to the skin's deeper layers becomes challenging. 

 

Moreover, the skin’s ability to lock in moisture is less efficient compared to lighter skin tones, leaving it vulnerable to intense transepidermal water loss (TEWL). Also known as dehydration. 

What’s needed is a smart, vectorized formula engineered to deliver nutrients effectively, free from potential irritants and nano-plastics that could block hydration in darker skin.

 

Mela Skin Reset redefines skin nourishment for darker skin, acknowledging that true hydration begins with active water. 

Our vitalized water increases cellular hydration, oxygenation, and nutrient penetration. Combined with low molecular hyaluronic acid, and micro-emulsified berry wax offers both instant and sustained hydration. Infused with Harpagophytum root extract and Alpinum Flower Extract, it not only soothes irritation but also shields against cellular damage.

The formula's potency is amplified by a harmonious blend of Zinc PCA, Radish Root Ferment Filtrate - A Vitamin complex, including Vitamin C, B3 ( niacinamide) , B5( pyridoxine), and E( tocopherol) - Spirulina and olive leaf extract. 

This master complex works to rebalance the microbiota of darker skin tones, visibly reduce pore size, and smooth out fine lines, setting a new standard for achieving a balanced, radiant complexion.

Remember, when you nail hydration, everything else just falls into place. 

Think of Mela Skin Reset as your daily resilience-boosting skin drink, the best Active-Juice Detox for darker skin tones.

4 reasons why our products are 
highly effective for darker skin tones

Reason #1: 
The Beauty-Enhancing Elixir

As you may already know, most skincare products are made of up to 80% water. And guess what water they use? Tap water, of course. 

 

Tap water contains impurities and contaminants, such as chlorine and heavy metals, which can irritate the skin and cause dryness or sensitivity. Additionally, it lacks essential minerals and nourishing properties, which leads to less effective hydration and revitalization of the skin.


On the other hand, at 4.5.6 Skin we use a special form of water that we create in our very own lab. It’s called Hexagonal water, and we use it in ALL our products.

 

This type of water has the awesome ability to dive deep into your skin, hydrating like nobody's business and leaving your skin looking and feeling amazing. 

 

We don’t use hexagonal water because it’s “cool.” We use it because it’s EXACTLY what darker skin tones need. Here’s why:

 

The structure of darker skin is often thicker and prone to water loss, leading to dehydration. Traditional skincare hydration, heavy on occlusives like plastics, suits lighter tones but not darker ones. 

 

For deeper hydration, we replenish and fortify the skin with plastic-free occlusives. That’s why we use Hexagonal water. 

 

By turning water into an active ingredient, we combat dehydration, inflammation, and weakness specific to darker skin tones.

 

Quite frankly, just our water alone blows other brands out of the water. 

But that’s not all. Let’s move on to secret #2.

Reason #2:
Gentle & Nourishing Texture Agents

Texture agents are the ingredient that gives skincare products that smooth, gliding feel. 

Typically, most skincare brands turn to plastics and silicones for this, but they can be harsh on darker skin, causing inflammation and dryness. 


We thought, "Let's switch things up." That's why we use plant-based, amino acid-derived agents—they're gentle on the skin and leave it feeling nourished and soothed.

Reason #3: 
Safe & Natural Preservatives

When it comes to product preservation, most skincare products use endocrine disruptors like parabens and phenoxyethanol. Which can cause irritation and mess with hormonal balance — especially for young women. 

Honestly, we couldn't bear the thought of potentially harming someone's reproductive health. 


So, we took a stand. No compromise.


Instead of using endocrine disruptors, we use a blend of gentle acids and phenylpropanol—a natural alternative that not only preserves but also boosts ingredients’ efficacy.

Reason #4: 
Complex Active Ingredients 
Formulated For Women Of Color

We know darker skin tones are extra sensitive. Therefore, instead of cramming in high percentages of single hero ingredients, we opt for complexes of active ingredients at smaller doses. 

That’s why our formulations not only treat skin issues but also target the root causes, reducing sensitivity and inflammation while boosting the skin's defense mechanisms. It's like giving your skin a team of allies, each ingredient working together for optimal results.

Yes! I'd love to have a radiant skin

Meet our founder

As a woman of color struggling with acne and hyperpigmentation, I was frustrated with skincare from ‘clinical experts’ that didn’t address the specific needs of my skin. 

 

In fact, our research revealed that darker skin tones are physiologically different . And therefore, they require a different treatment. 

 

Sadly, phototypes IV, V, & VI (non-white skin tones) have not been included in research and development or testing - which means that most skincare product that are marketed to us, aren't actually formulated for us. 

 

I vowed that healthy glowing skin should be accessible to everyone
