Key actives

EUK 134 - A remarkable self-regenerating Manganese molecule that combines destructive rogue Hydrogen & Oxygen free-radicals and turns them into H2O. It protects against toxic effects of free radicals by mimicking superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase activities. It scavenges Superoxide free radicals, eliminates Hydrogen Peroxide (H2 O2) and transforms ROS into water and Oxygen. Regenerates itself for 24-hour protection. Also prevents the formation of UV induced TT Dimer and Peroxide Lipids, which can also have a beneficial effect against UV induced cellular damage.

O3 YEAST LYSATE - Proven to protect DNA and the natural lipid barrier against Ozone. Also, reduces fine lines.

ASTAXANTHIN - Anti-oxidant 6,000 times more powerful than Vitamin C & 550 times more powerful than Vitamin E.

CAMELLIA JAPONICA - From Korea, reduces heavy metal-induced oxidative stress. Protects against arsenic, cadmium, lead, nickel (found in Particulate Matter PM & VOCs). Also, increases dermal density to firm and reduce fine lines, increases hydration and reduces inflammation.

CO-ENZYME Q10 - Enzymatic co-factor (for a variety of processes). Free radical scavenger/Anti-oxidant. Also has a major role in controlling cell membrane dynamics, which play an important role in protecting cellular integrity from external pollutants.

SODIUM ASCORBYL PHOSPHATE (VIT C) - Extreme anti-oxidant capacity and well-documented skin health benefits. Has skin firming properties due to fibroblast generation, which reduces skin permeability. Chelates heavy metals to prevent absorption.

NIACINAMIDE (VIT B3) - Increases production of ceramides, barrier proteins and their precursors (keratin, involucrin, laggrin), leading to improved barrier function and pore reduction preventing PM (Particulate Matter) from absorbing through the epidermis. Also, a proven anti-inflammatory and has anti-oxidant capabilities.

MSM - Helps protect the skin against atmospheric pollution by supporting the skin’s protective barrier, structural integrity and reduces permeability of skin, which can help protect the skin against absorption of particulate, metallic and chemical pollutants. Also, helps reduce the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles. A smoother skin surface is less likely to trap microscopic particles of atmospheric pollution.

SMITHSONITE - Chelates heavy metals found in VOCs and PM (from industry and exhausts). Also anti-glycation effect and protects DNA.

MALACHITE - Rich in copper with a strong protective and radical scavenging activity, as well as a powerful detoxifying action. Malachite is non-photo-toxic, combats daily stresses and also soothes.

How to use

Add 1 part (drop) of Concentrate to 3 parts (drops) of your usual skincare product. Blend in the palm of your hand and massage evenly into skin. Works very well with serums, oils and foundations. Due to the Vitamin C content, there is no need to use another Vitamin C product in your routine. EUK-134 does not sit well along side Vitamin C which is naturally acidic. We have spent 2 years perfecting this formula allowing our micro-encapsulated Vitamin C and EUK-134 to work perfectly and safely together.

CAUTION: Avoid eye contact. If eye contact occurs, rinse well with warm water. Do not use on broken skin. This is a highly concentrated product and must be blended before application. Do not apply neat. Do not exceed the suggested dose.
