9. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SERUM AND DAY CREAM?
Serum is applied to a perfectly cleansed face, before the cream.
It is advisable to let the serum penetrate for 1 minute, after which it is possible to apply the cream.
Serum plumps up the skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines thanks to its vitamin B3 and hyaluronic acid. Serum contains 95% natural ingredients and it is 100% vegan. It can be used alone or at the same time as your complete routine, including the day cream.
Serum is more concentrated in active ingredients. The day cream is applied after the serum and moisturizes and protects your skin from the daily inconveniences that your skin undergoes. Thanks to the creaminess of the cream, your skin is immediately hydrated and softer in an instant and your complexion will be illuminated. The texture adapts perfectly to the skin type and provides an effective treatment.
Whether in the store or on the website, it is possible to choose the texture, to add the fragrance or not and to focus on 3 main elements of skin problems.

11. WHAT DO THE DIFFERENT TEXTURES OF CREAMS CORRESPOND TO?
Omy Laboratories offer 3 different types of textures:
1.The light texture allows the skin to absorb quickly and without leaving a greasy finish on the skin. It is ideal for oily skin. This is the texture which is most used by our customers;
2.The silky texture brings comfort and protection throughout the day. It is perfect for normal to combination skin;
3.The rich texture is thicker, it soothes naturally dry skin or skin which has been dehydrated by the changes of season (cold weather, air conditioning, UV rays, etc.).
12. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DAY CREAM AND NIGHT CREAM?
Day cream moisturizes and protects your skin from everyday discomfort. Thanks to the cream, your skin absorbs the minerals it needs to eliminate marks of dryness and make your complexion brighter. In addition, day cream contains a significant amount of antioxidants from green tea, for a protective and invigorating action.
Conversely, night cream is applied to nourish your skin and strengthen the skin barrier, stimulating the regeneration of your skin during the night, so that it is rested and appears fresher thanks to the benefits absorbed during the night. This is why it contains a large amount of plant ceramides to rebuild your skin barrier.

21. IS IT NORMAL TO REACT TO AN OMY LABORATORY PRODUCT? (SKIN REACTION TO PRODUCT)
Before we put the products on sale, we test each new product to ensure its safety.
Since you may be allergic to some of the ingredients in one or more of our products, we advise you to consult the list of ingredients that appears at the bottom of the description page of each product.
We recommend anyone with known allergies, sensitive skin or who has previously reacted to a skin product, to do a patch test with every new skin care product, regardless of the brand. The patch test helps determine if a person has skin sensitivity or an allergy to a product or ingredient. Ideally, apply the product on the inside part of the elbow or wrist and wait at least 24 hours to see if there is a reaction.
If the skin shows no sign of intolerance, the product can be tested on the skin of the neck. The product should be applied once a day, for 3 consecutive days. You must then wait a minimum of 3 days without any further application.
After these 3 days, we recommend reapplying the product on the skin of the neck. If there is no sign of intolerance, it is very unlikely that the product will cause a skin reaction when applied to the entire face.
Omy Laboratories, its suppliers and their affiliates cannot be held liable for any wound, damage or harm related to an allergy to nuts, gluten or other, occurring as a result of the use of any of the products.
22. I HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN. ARE OMY LABORATORY PRODUCTS SUITABLE FOR ME?
