Everything you need to know about the Soho Skin Renewal Serum

This hardworking hero deserves a spot front and centre in your daily skincare routine – here’s why…

By Chloe Lawrance

The Soho Skin range is built around one central goal: creating fuss-free, high-impact formulas that support skin through the ups and downs of a busy life. And that's no truer than in the Renewal Serum. Multifunctional, luxurious and the perfect antidote to an on-the-go lifestyle that can leave your complexion feeling dry and looking a little dull, think of it as bright and radiant skin in a bottle.

But what makes this serum so special? Its powerhouse ingredients list, lightweight but luxe texture, and results-driven formula. Here's everything you need to know about this skin superhero - from the ingredients to look out for to maximising its efficacy as part of your daily routine.

What is the Soho Skin Renewal Serum?

A true multitasker, the Renewal Serum is a nourishing step to be added to both your morning and evening routine. Rich in antioxidants and biocompatible ingredients, the formula works to protect and strengthen the skin, which in turn supports optimal barrier function. Alongside this, the never-sticky texture calms irritation, boosts elasticity and helps to soothe redness, while also stimulating the skin's natural renewal and hydration processes. The result? A brighter, smoother and more even complexion.

The Renewal Serum is a bona fide 'for everyone' formula: we created it without using unnecessarily high percentages of potentially irritating active ingredients, which can often disrupt the moisture barrier or lead to sensitivity. As a result, it's suitable for just about every skin type - even sensitive skin that may find brightening formulas packed with vitamin C, AHAs or BHAs too harsh.

Ingredients spotlight

Soho Skin Concentrate

The star of many of our formulas - and the driving force behind the skin health-boosting Renewal Serum - the Soho Skin Concentrate is made up of a trifecta of hero ingredients. There's lactococcus ferment lysate, a strengthening postbiotic that accelerates the skin's natural renewal process; glycogen, which stimulates skin energy for increased hydration and a smoother finish; and pistacia lentiscus gum, an antioxidant derived from tree resin that encourages natural collagen and elastin production for a firmer, more radiant complexion.

Melanin modulator

Especially suited for those that want the brightening effects of ingredients like vitamin C, without any potential irritation, this gently regulates the production of melanin using a blend of green and brown microalgae. Expect to see brighter, more even skin as a result.


Though a little-known ingredient, this baker's yeast-derived humectant packs a big punch. By absorbing and locking in moisture, beta-glucan is able to boost hydration levels while helping to repair a compromised skin barrier. In turn, this protects it from environmental aggressors that can cause sensitivity, and helps to create that glowing, healthy finish we're all striving for.

Amino acids

Essential for maintaining the natural health of your skin, amino acids are the building blocks for regenerative peptides, as well as key proteins like collagen and elastin - the fibres that create its plumpness, firmness and bounciness. They aid in hydrating, soothing and repairing the skin.


A must-have ingredient for those with a compromised skin barrier, this multifunctional ingredient works to calm irritation, diminish dullness and even skin tone for a brighter, more radiant effect. Consider it one of the Renewal Serum's most versatile ingredients: not only does it support overall tone, but it also boosts hydration and works to stimulate skin's natural supply of ceramides - which means less sensitivity in the long run.

Routine tips

As with each and every product in the Soho Skin range, the Renewal Serum is designed to offer consistency over intensity. With a carefully considered formula offering gentle but effective results, add it to your morning and evening routines to maximise its potential.

Cleanse skin fully, before working two to three pumps of the serum into your skin until fully absorbed. Use your fingertips to gently massage your face; this will help to reduce any puffiness, boost glow and alleviate any tension. Follow with the Soho Skin Face Cream in the morning; this lightweight formula will lock in hydration all day long. In the evening, follow with the Overnight Cream. Incredibly nourishing, this rich cream is formulated with a host of biocompatible ingredients to aid the skin's repair and recovery processes.
