Key actives

RETINOL (Vitamin A Palmitate) - improves the appearance of sun damaged, dry and mature skin to reveal soft, supple texture.

ASTAXANTHIN - a powerful antioxidant, 6,000 times more potent than Vitamin C, protects throughout the dermal layers from free radical damage, responsible for the ageing process, and sun’s damaging UV rays while also improving elasticity.

COLLANGENEER - a patented active from White Lupin boosts Collagen I synthesis and the formation and quality of the collagen matrix to firm and improve elasticity for improved facial contour. In vivo trials showed a 92% increase in firmness & 72% reduction in sagging facial contour (at 2%, 25 women over 89 days).

MSM - reduces inflammation, boosts the power of Glutathione and increases the production of pheomelanin, the type of melanin that is found in fair-skinned people, relative to eumelanin, the darker type of melanin, to reduce pigmentation. It also acts as an anti-inflammatory and calms breakouts.

MICA - reflects light to enliven skin.

Intentional Nutrients

  • Astaxanthin

    Is a bright red carotenoid found throughout nature. A super anti-oxidant 6,000 times more powerful than Vitamin C and 550 times more powerful than Vitamin E. Sourced from micro algae, it gives prawns and flamingos their bright pink colour. Astaxanthin has been proven to have a positive effect on collagen production but also sun protection.

  • Avocado Butter

    Packed with healthy fats, Vitamins (C & E) and anti-oxidants, avocado is credited for its nourishing, soothing and calming properties. Its anti-oxidant content protects the skin from free radical damage caused by UV radiation and pollutants whilst its Vitamin C content helps stimulate collagen production, contributing to skin firmness and elasticity.

  • Collageneer® (Lupinus Albus Seed Extract)

    A patented active ingredient derived from White Lupin seed coatings that has the ability not only to increase the synthesis of Type I collagen (the most abundant collagen, which diminishes with age), but also to promote production of a high quality collagen that gives the skin its firmness and elasticity.

  • Omegas 3, 6 & 9

    Essential Fatty Acids that boost lipid content and aid repair of the skin’s barrier function, protecting delicate skin and increasing hydration to increase softness and elasticity.

  • Retinol (Vitamin A)

    A powerful anti-ageing ingredient that helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. Stimulates collagen production helping improve skin elasticity and firmness. It’s also effective at unclogging pores, reducing acne breakouts and improving overall skin texture. The king/queen of all skincare actives. There are a number of retinol and retinoid derivatives that we use.

     

  • Vitamin C

    Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C)

    A Vitamin C derivative with extreme anti-oxidant capacity and well-documented skin health benefits. Firms skin due to fibroblast generation which reduces skin permeability. Boosts collagen production to reduce fine lines and brightens skin due to its anti-oxidant capacity. One of the most stable and potent forms of Vitamin C, proven to reduce melanogenisis in the melanocytes by 57% and age spots by 25% using only 0.14%.

  • Vitamin E

    With anti-oxidant and calming properties, Vitamin E is beneficial in helping prevent the signs of premature ageing through protecting the skin from environmental pollution, protecting against UV radiation and powerful anti-inflammatory action.

  • Silica

    A mineral found abundantly in sand, clay and granite, as well as in parts of plants and animals. In cosmetics it is used as an absorbent powder, thickening agent or a wonderfully gentle micro-exfoliant.
