It’s the launch you’ve been waiting for - in fact, asking for - and it’s finally here. Introducing Pai Labs #CONCENTRATES - a collection of all-natural boosters for sensitive skin.
Our three new boosters are designed to supercharge your skincare, giving you the active ingredients you need to personalise your routine in a way that works for you.
What is a skincare booster?
You may have heard of skin boosters, but what exactly are they? Boosters contain a high concentration of actives (either a single ingredient or a group), to target specific skin concerns. Think of them as you would your shot of wheatgrass at the smoothie counter - they’re all about enhancing your skincare routine with potent, proven ingredients.
Designed to be used neat or blended in with your existing skincare, they allow you to add doses of powerful actives into your routine in a way that suits you. Let’s face it, you already have a skincare regime - so why add unnecessary steps and pricey products just to see the results you want? With boosters, you can supercharge your skincare with effective ingredients without starting from scratch.
So why choose Pai? We’ve made our #CONCENTRATES specifically for sensitive skin, using all-natural, high-performing ingredients that won’t compromise your skin’s health. And we don’t expect you to have a chemistry degree to understand them either; we’ve made them simple, so you can slot them into your routine as you please.
What can boosters do for your skin?
Our new #CONCENTRATES collection includes three new boosters, featuring active ingredients known to brighten, protect and smooth - and they’re all suitable for sensitive skin. Pick one, two or all three to add to your routine - it’s up to you.
STABILISED VITAMIN C 20% BRIGHTENING BOOSTER
Best for: Dark spots, pigmentation and uneven skin tone
Use it: AM & PM, or AM only if you’re using Retinol at night
If brighter skin is your goal, Vitamin C is the active your routine is missing. This oil concentrate boasts a high percentage of the potent antioxidant, which has unrivalled brightening benefits - helping to reduce pigmentation and uneven tone for more radiant skin.
Ours is stabilised in an oil-soluble formula, so unlike water-based products it won’t degrade. That means your skin gets all the benefits (good for you, and your wallet).
PREBIOTIC INULIN 4% PROTECTIVE BOOSTER
Best for: Hypersensitive skin
Use it: AM & PM
You may not have heard of Inulin, but we’ll bet you’ve heard of prebiotics. Though every skin type can benefit from this plant-derived prebiotic, sensitive skin types will love the results that Inulin can deliver.
Extracted from chicory root, it protects and calms by rebalancing the skin’s microbiome, reinforcing its natural defences to reduce sensitivity. Plus we’ve included organic Glycerin, an excellent humectant to hydrate and improve skin barrier function.
PEPTIDES 5% SMOOTHING BOOSTER
Best for: Fine lines, uneven texture and mature skin
Use it: AM & PM, or PM only if preferred
Peptides are famed for stimulating collagen and elastin to firm and smooth, making them an essential tool in targeting the signs of ageing. Our booster serum is packed with Hexapeptide and Pea peptides, powerful antioxidants to help improve the appearance of fine lines in even the most sensitive skin.
How do you use a booster?
The beauty of boosters is that you can use them however you want! Use as much or as little as you like, sandwiching them between skincare steps or blending them in with your existing products.
Ours have been patch tested on sensitive skin for your peace of mind - but if you are particularly sensitive, mixing your booster with your skincare is a strong place to start. Try just one drop, added to your serum or moisturiser (and even your face oil for the Vitamin C - it works well with Rosehip!) and build up gradually from there. They can even be used around the eyes, too.
Apply it neat
Our boosters can be used directly on the skin, in between your other skincare products. Here’s how to add them into your routine:
- Prebiotic Inulin: use after or instead of your moisturiser
- Peptides: use after or instead of your serum or moisturiser
- Vitamin C: use after or instead of your face oil, as the last step of your routine

Why we created #CONCENTRATES
The #CONCENTRATES collection is the latest launch from Pai Labs. Our innovation hub, it’s where our chemists get creative, responding to customer demands and trends to bring new products to market, fast.
The idea for boosters came from you - to satisfy the need for powerful ingredients in skin-friendly formulas. We know all too well the fear of trying new skincare when you have sensitive skin, particularly with potent actives; that’s why ours are all-natural and made in a way that puts you in charge.
There’s more to come, and what’s next is up to you - so what is your skincare routine missing? Our team is ready and waiting for their next challenge, so get in touch on social media or drop us a line to share your requests.
