What is skin phototype?
A skin’s phototype is its ability to assimilate solar rays and how it reacts to exposure to the sun, depending on several factors including type of skin, sensitivity and skin pigmentation.
What products does Somens offer?
At Somens, we work based on the understanding that skin can only be treated if it has been previously hydrated. For proper hydration, we offer four specific moisturizers for each skin phototype: white, brown, tan, Middle Eastern and Asian and dark. For hydration treatment we offer you four product lines that enhance cleansing, hydration, nutrition, regeneration and protection and intensive local treatment or targeted to specific facial areas.
Are Somens moisturizing creams appropriate for all ages?
Somens does not distinguish between ages for hydration; the distinction is based instead on skin phototype independently of age. Any skin type or tone, independently of age, will benefit from the results that our innovative formulas offer. It’s a cream for your entire life cycle.
My mother has the same phototype as I do (white skin), but she has wrinkles and I don’t. Is it enough for her to use only a moisturizing cream?
We understand that within each phototype there can be specific needs for each skin, according to age, habits, location, etc. That is why we offer treatments to cover an array of distinct needs.

Do I need the Somens serum if I already have another one?
You can finish using the serum you are currently using. However, the complete Somens treatment is based on the experience and visible results that our labs have obtained based on not only the synergies between ingredients but also between products. The content of each formula and its proportions has been tested and is based on the principle of avoiding as much as possible inert ingredients such as paraffin that do not add value to final results.

When I applied the product, my skin became red. What does this mean or what might have happened?
Somens products are formulated with the most optimal and secure concentrations permitted, above and beyond what other similar products offer. Our objective is for them to fulfil their designated function. Therefore, if you notice redness in an area of your skin, it could be due to the following reasons:
-A venotonic reaction due to vitamin C concentration.
-You have applied too much of the product.
-Your skin was not prepared for this type of treatment.
-Your skin is suffering from extreme cold/heat or irritation from the sun.
If the redness is intense, it could also be that your skin does not tolerate one of the plant-based ingredients in the product’s formula. In this case, remove the product with water and discontinue use.
