10 firming facts
The firming trio, Firming Therapy Moisturizer, Firming Perfector Serum and Firming Eye Mask, all contain hyaluronic acid. The serum and the eye mask even contains two different kinds. Hyaluronic acid is a very powerful ingredient that gives moisture, suppleness and glow – and works in the skin layer where your skin naturally produces the collagen that smooths out the lines in your skin.
Firming Perfector Serum is not just for your face. It can work just as visible wonders on both neck and chest/décolletage. In fact we believe – just like many other skincare experts – that facial care always includes your neck and chest. Our Firming Eye Mask can also be used on any spot in need of nourishing hydration and a caring lift.
You’ll find mango butter in Firming Therapy Moisturizer, who’s a true friend if you want to maintain your skin’s moisture balance.
Andrea Rudolph has tested the products herself along with the Rudolph Care team. It took a while to find just the right effect, texture and fragrance.
Firming Eye Mask is fragrance free to work gently on the delicate eye area – but we’ve added the classic, natural Rudolph Care signature fragrance to both the serum and the moisturizer. The fragrance is subtly mixed with the natural scents from the products’ many green ingredients; broccoli, kale, spinach, mango, fresh cucumber - swirled with the scent of early summer mornings and freshly cut grass. Almost good enough to eat.
At Rudolph Care we cherish both inner and outer beauty and we’re convinced that you can care for both with the best ingredients. This philosophy we brought into the developing phases of the Firming products. And when we reached the final ingredient list, filled with so many goodies, we were actually a little hungry. This resulted in a team-up with Marie Hertz, the woman behind the restaurant at Birkemosegaard, one of Denmark’s foremost organic gardens. Together we’ve created five recipes inspired by the ingredients in the products. You can find the recipes here.
Both Firming Therapy Moisturizer and Firming Perfector Serum enjoy avocado. The moisturizer contains avocado oil, while the serum has the honor of avocado extract. Avocado has regenerative properties and makes the skin silky soft.
The green firming products are for all, but they’re especially for mature skin in need of an extra power boost. We love smile lines, twinkling eyes, glow and fresh cheeks, though we gladly complement dryness lines with fully nourished skin full of life. If you and your skin are not in the ‘experienced/mature’ category yet, you can still reap great effect from the products. Then we recommend using the products as a part of your evening routine where the active, nourishing ingredients are allowed peace and quiet to work with your skin through the entire night.
Apple stem cells - what’s that all about? In both Firming Perfector Serum and Firming Therapy Moisturizer you’ll find stem cell technology, which is an entirely unique element within the Rudolph Care universe. Apple stem cells resemble the skin’s own cells and therefore they help it to regenerate faster, also leaving your skin supple and radiant.
Last but not least, all three products contain our signature ingredient, açai. Both as oil and extract. Açai is extremely rich – though especially the antioxidants and its essential fatty acids are elements we deeply adore it for. They strengthen and nourish your skin, boosting its elasticity.

If you dream of deep moisture, suppleness and softness, hyaluronic acid is your best friend. Hyaluronic acid has a unique ability to bind and retain moisture in the skin. It works in the layers where the skin naturally produces the collagen that plumps the skin. Hyaluronic acid replenishes the layers with plenty of moisture, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, giving the skin a whole new resilience and radiance. You’ll find hyaluronic acid in the entire firming series. Firming Perfector Serum and Firming Eye Mask contain two types of hyaluronic acids, which both plump and tighten the skin’s structure.
The precious dark purple açai berries have an exceptionally high antioxidant content, and both the oil and the extract boast a unique ability to revitalize and rebuild the skin. This makes the açai berry a genuine key ingredient in our products. The nourishing, essential fatty acids replenish and moisturize the skin, tone down redness and neutralize free radicals to help the skin achieve a deep, healthy glow and moisture-drenched radiance.
With a high vitamin A, B and D content, avocado pampers the skin with a revitalizing boost that rescues dry and tired skin. The rich content of unsaturated fatty acids regenerates and moisturizes the skin, making it feel soft, nourished and supple once more. Avocado extract and oil are especially beneficial for those with sensitive or stressed skin as the avocado acts to soothe the skin with an antioxidant boost. Also suitable for those with oilier skin, as the avocado has a purifying effect.

With age, the skin’s stem cells lose the ability to divide and repair damage – and the skin can therefore quickly lack radiance and smoothness. The natural apple stem cell extract resembles the skin’s own cells and assists the skin’s natural ability to renew itself.
