What Is Multifunctional Skincare

Often, when we face a skin concern, we try to target our concern with a specific product. We end up juggling with trying our multiple products all targeting different skin concerns. Our bathroom selves are full and maybe we are not even sure what to do with all the products anymore and you start feeling overwhelmed.

Multifunctional skincare refers to skincare products that target multiple concerns in one product. Multifunctional skincare helps simplify skincare, save money, is more environmentally friendly and delivers results.

What is multifunctional skincare

Multifunctional skincare refers to products designed to address multiple skincare needs simultaneously. 

Multifunctional skincare products are versatile, often targeting a range of concerns such as hydration, anti-ageing, and brightening. This versatility is achieved through a thoughtfully crafted combination of active ingredients.

The synergy between ingredients is a fundamental aspect of multifunctional skincare. By combining elements that enhance each other's efficacy, these products maximize the overall impact on the skin.

4 Benefits of multifunctional skincare

  1. Holistic Care: Embracing multifunctional skincare aligns with a holistic approach to beauty. It acknowledges that skin health is multifaceted and requires a comprehensive strategy.

  2. Sustainability: By consolidating your skincare routine into fewer products, you contribute to sustainability efforts. Reduced packaging waste and a streamlined consumption model are inherent benefits of choosing multifunctional skincare.

  3. Time Efficiency: In our fast-paced lives, time is a precious commodity. Multifunctional skincare simplifies routines, making it an ideal choice for those seeking effective yet time-efficient solutions.

  4. Cost-Effective: While multifunctional products may seem like an investment, they often prove to be cost-effective in the long run, considering the range of concerns they address in a single application.

Multifunctional ingredients at Jenny Nordic Skincare

Fermented Oat Extract

Our hero ingredient fermented oat kernel extract contains both prebiotics, probiotics and postbiotics that together work to hydrate and balance the skin. 

Prebiotic ectoin promotes hydration by maintaining the correct water balance in the skin meaning the skin appears smooth and soft preventing dehydration of the epidermis.

Probiotic lactobacillus bacteria help kill harmful bacteria and restore balance to the skin’s microflora. It is able to soothe and calm any inflammations without causing any dryness or stripping it of any vital oil it needs to remain healthy and balanced.

Our fermented oats also contain AHAs, mainly lactic acid that can exfoliate the uppermost layer of the skin. AHAs have the ability to hydrate the skin, improve the skin barrier function and enhance the production of ceramides by keratinocytes.

Amino acids protect skin from free-radical damage and help reduce signs of premature ageing. 

The fermentation process of oats also produces peptides that help the skin’s cellular renewal.

Arctic Berry Extracts

The high level of antioxidants in these berry extracts helps to protect the skin from free radicals and environmental stressors that can cause signs of premature ageing. They also have a potent skin-calming ability and they provide essential fatty acids and tocotrienols for nourishing, hydrating, and protecting skin.

Oat Lipid

Oat lipid is extracted from the kernel of the oat. It helps lock in moisture levels by forming a physical barrier to epidermal water loss, preventing further drying. Oat lipid is rich in vitamin E and Linoleic acid, and can help maintain the skin's natural balance by replacing lipids lost during everyday life. It contains ceramides and thanks to the rich polar lipid content, Nordic oat lipid acts as an occlusive and a humectant at the same time, absorbing and retaining moisture in the skin.


Niacinamide or vitamin B3 is a skincare multitasker. It’s one of the most powerful anti-inflammatories in skincare. It helps regulate sebum production, improves skin’s barrier function and prevents transepidermal water loss (TEWL) and can support new cell growth. In our formulations, we use high-grade niacinamide that is less likely to cause any irritation.

Smooth Oil to Milk Cleanser

Our Smooth Oil to Milk Cleanser is a great multifunctional product. It works as a make-up remover and is a first cleanse and second cleanse in one bottle.

It contains Oat lipid that helps strengthen the skin and prevent moisture loss. Camellia seed oil and castor oil are excellent skin moisturiser and cleanser at the same time.

Organic lavender and palmarosa work together to clean congested skin, balance sebum production, reduce redness, and provide soothing relief.

Rehydrate & Balance Beauty Essence

Rehydrate & Balance Beauty Essence will replace toner, mist and serum in your skincare routine. This multitasking hero deeply hydrates the skin, prevents hormonal breakouts, strengthens and plumps the skin at the same time.

It contains Arctic lingonberry, niacinamide and fermented oat extract that together work to balance the skin so that you can glow with confidence.

Glow & Revitalize Oil Serum

Our Glow & Revitalize Oil Serum is magic in the bottle. It helps smooth fine lines and wrinkles, lock in moisture and hydration, nourish the skin with vitamins, fatty acids and ceramides. The scent is uplifting and calming at the same time. Although the serum absorbs fast, it is also perfect for face massage and gua sha.
