Who: Joy Isaacs
What: ARgENTUM La Lune de Velours ($138)
Why: Growing up in South Africa, Joy Isaacs watched her mother use the age-old remedy of Colloidal Silver on childhood cuts and scrapes. But it took several seemingly unrelated incidents – a surgery-related infection healed with silver-infused dressings; a lucid dream about starting her own beauty brand; and an auspicious meeting with skincare pioneer Dr. Gilbert Mouzin – to motivate Isaacs to create ARgENTUM. Every product in her line features a patented blend of Silver Hydrosol and DNA HP, which uniquely hydrates and promotes cellular regeneration, without feeling the least bit heavy. And to round out the line, ARgENTUM just unveiled La Lune de Velours, a milky, oil-based cleanser. “It's comforting, deeply hydrating and doesn’t cause any tightness despite being a very effective makeup remover,” says Isaacs. It also arrives with a fina silk sea sponge to help gently buff away every last impurity.
