What is it?

Caviar is a luxury culinary delicacy which has been loved for centuries. However, MATIS have studied this unique ingredient to see the benefits that it can bring outside of culinary. Rich in over 47 different nutrients Caviar maintains a healthy, even, and calmed complexion. Providing an active source of Vitamins A & E. These are powerful antioxidants to combat the harmful molecules that cause premature ageing and  skin damage. Caviar also contains Amino acids which are the building blocks of the skin. A primary function to reinforce the skins natural barrier, locking in moisture and encouraging longer lasting hydration. And one of the final key activities is a stimulator of Collagen through its peptides this encourages firmer more resilient skin with a more youthful glow.

This is just a snapshot into the key ingredient within this luxurious, exquisite range. Not only does it deliver results but is cocooning, enveloping and a stimulator of all the senses when applied.  

Why Caviar?

The Matis Caviar Line is a complete line of 8 products. This includes The Milk, a perfecting make-up remover with Damask Rose. The Essence, an award-winning silky pre-treatment toner. The line also features The Serum, an anti-ageing elixir with unparalleled sensory experience. The Cream and The Night which offer regenerating action. Lastly, The Eyes, a unique black jelly for smooth eye contour. The beauty routine is completed with The Scrub, a black granita with natural volcanic lava powder and the award-winning The Mask, a hydrating mask that leaves the skin remineralised and glowing.

All in one payments for rent a chair businesses

Slick has launched SlickPay: a unique card machine that lets both employed staff and sole traders use the same card machine.

Businesses currently have a choice of use 1 machine and do the messy work of calculating earnings per staff OR using separate machines which can look unprofessional to the client when they have to pay on different machines.

Slick uses one machine but the smart tech recognises the staff member and pays the correct amount into their bank account automatically.

This means business owners have less admin, more control and simpler accounting as they receive earnings for the limited company only.

Sole traders benefit from lower rates and better cash flow as the get their money the next business day!
