SKIN CARE INGREDIENTS:
Algae Extract: A potent concentration of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, which protects and nourishes the skin
Allantoin: promotes cellular regeneration and provides anti-inflammatory and soothing activity
Aloe Vera: Polysaccharides act as moisturizers, hydrating the skin. Aloe is absorbed into the skin and stimulates the fibroblasts to replicate themselves faster and it is these cells that produce the collagen and elastin fibers, so the skin becomes more elastic and less wrinkled. Aloe possesses the ability to interfere with the enzyme that produces melanin deposits in the skin, helping to prevent the formation of 'liver spots', which tend to develop in aging skin. When used regularly it may even help to eliminate existing spots.
Argan Oil: Tightens and firms the appearance of skin. Regenerative and restructuring for smooth skin and optimal cellular function
Aspen Bark Extract: not only acts as a natural preservative but also offers smoothness and refined pores through it's natural salicylic acid (beta hydroxy acids)
Beta Glucan: Promotes collagen synthesis and reduces the appearance of wrinkles
Bilberry: one of the best sources of antioxidant compounds known as anthocyanins, known to strengthen skin against signs of redness, and boosts skin’s environmental defenses in the presence of UVA light.
Black Raspberry: Packed with essential fatty acids and antioxidants, this powerhouse oil provides some of the best natural sun protection available with remarkable protective and healing benefits not delivered by other oils.
Vitamin "C": An anti-aging powerhouse!!. First, it aids in the production of collagen—the protein fibers that give skin its elasticity, making it look smooth and supple. Vitamin C also works as a powerful antioxidant, protecting your skin from stressors like UV rays and free radicals that damage skin cells. The oxidative stress they create can lead to fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. It also helps to brighten and even skintone - its acidic pH helps to slough away dead skin cells, revealing a more youthful glow.
Caffeine: Provides a mild firming effect and improved circulation; Well known for it's ability to increase micro circulation, and reduce puffiness, it is recognized as one of the best actives for dark circles and puffiness.
Camellia (Green Tea) Oil: Quick to absorb leaving no greasy feel behind, this very stable carrier oil is rich in antioxidants, Vitamin E and Squalene.
Ceramides: Boosts collagen, elastin, and keratin production to repair the skins delicate lipid barrier. Ceramides are specialized fats, or lipids, found in the outer skin layer, the stratum corneum. They act like grout that sits between the skin cell ‘bricks’ to maintain a healthy barrier and prevent loss of hydration. Our skin is our body’s largest organ - protecting us from infectious microorganisms - and it only works optimally with a healthy barrier that can defend against everything our modern lives throw at it. Ceramides help keep the good stuff in and the bad stuff out.
DPHP: Delivers collagen and plumps the skin
Extracts of bilberry, sugar, bitter orange and lemon: for their cellular refining and toning activity through their natural glycolic, lactic and tannic acid (alpha hydroxy acids)
Green and White Tea: Contains the potent antioxidant catechin, which protects your skin from the oxidative stress caused by UV exposure.
Hyaluronic Acid: Hyaluronan is a natural component in the skin and serves to keep skin tissues soft and supple. But aging and environmental stress can deplete skins natural HA. Topical use of Sodium Hyaluronate promotes moisture retention, viscoelasticity and lubricity. One of the most powerful moisturizing agents available.
Kalahari Seed Oil: A natural cleanser, Kalahari melon seed oil contains linolenic acid which can help to unclog pores and remove excess sebum on the surface of the skin. Kalahari is loaded with antioxidants and vitamins A, C and E to help hydrate and tighten skin, making it appear firmer and reducing the appearance of wrinkles, while also reducing skin inflammation, such as acne
Niacinamide: The active form of Vitamin B3, is necessary for cellular energy and optimal tissue function. Refines Skin Texture and Evens Skin Tone.
