PATENTED ACTIVES

OSKIA only uses the purest, patented bio-actives that are clinically-proven to work.  In addition to our signature blends of bio-available cell nutrients (vitamins, minerals, omegas, proteins), each product contains 9-15 bio-actives. Each bio-active has been rigorously tested for efficacy and proven to be the very best at what they do. It is our promise to you that we only use the most effective ingredients. We use bio-available nutrients, either in fermented or nano form. 

  • Aquacanteen: a refined cactus stem cell elixir clinically proven to calm irritated skin, both short and long term. Also hydrates, firms and chelates iron to reduce ROS. Rich in piscidic acid, Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, and C, the minerals potassium, calcium and magnesium.
  • Alaria Esculenta (Algae) Extract: From a brown algae found on the Brittany coast, this extract demonstrates anti free radical, anti-elastase and anti-collegenase activity leading to increased firmness and skin suppleness.
  • Astaxanthin - Anti-oxidant 6,000 times more powerful than Vitamin C and 550 times more powerful than Vitamin E. Sourced from algae and give prawns and flamingos their bright pink colour. 
  • Biodynes O3® (Saccharomyces Ferment Filtrate Lysate) - unrivalled DNA protection against O2 pollution made using fermented yeast.
  • Butterbur: proven anti-histamine that soothes and reduces redness and irritation.
  • Camellia Japonica - A beautiful red flower from Korea which reduces heavy metal-induced oxidative stress. Protects against arsenic, cadmium, lead, nickel (the most damaging metals found in Particulate Matter PM). Also increases dermal density to firm and reduce fine lines, increases hydration and reduces inflammation.
  • Cardiospermum Halicacabum (Balloon Vine) Extract: A climbing plant from the tropics, contains high proportions of phytosteroles and triterpens which offer anti-inflammatory & soothing.
  • Co-Enzyme Q10 - Enzymatic co-factor (for a variety of enzymatic 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.
  • Collageneer® (Lupin seed extract, helianthus annuus seed oil, tocopherol). A patented active ingredient derived from Lupin seed coatings, 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.
  • Crithmum Maritimum (Sea Fennel) Extract: A seaweed/marine extract that helps to detoxify and tonify oxygen deficient skin restore the hydrolipidic barrier.
  • Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Extract: A plant of the ginger family native to South Asia. Ideal for improvement of skin radiance and evenness of skin tone due to its significant anti-oxidant activity and induction of endogenous cellular defence mechanisms against oxidative stress.
  • Echium Plantagineum Seed Oil: 100% plant derived source of omega 3, 6 & 9 able to rejuvenate and revitalise skin.
  • EUK 134 - A remarkable self-regenerating Manganese molecule that combines destructive rogue hydrogen & oxygen free-radicals and turns them into water. 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.
    Ground-breaking technology and the most valuable mineral active to date costing £20K/kg.
  • Fruit Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs): natural acids that dissolve intercellular glue binding dead skin cells, correcting irregularities in stratum corneum to promote more compact structure and elevated function.
  • Galactoarabinan: polysaccharide extracted from larch tree (vegetable alternative to Collagen) that firms, smoothes and tones and adds natural sheen and radiance.
  • Gatuline In-Tense® (Spilanthes acmella flower extract). A concentrated oily extract taken from the upper part of the Spilanthes acmella plant (Asteraceae family). By stimulating the biomechanical functions of the fibroblasts, this extract will help reorganize the architecture of the dermis. The density and firmness of the skin are then rapidly enhanced, leading to a reduction in skin roughness.
  • Lactic Acid: AHA derived from milk noted for rich moisturising attributes and ability to exfoliate dead skin cells without provoking irritation.
  • Laminaria: kelp extract rich in vitamins (P in particular) and minerals used in combination with Arnica to visibly reduce eye puffiness and dark circles.
  • Lupinus Albus Seed Extract: Patented active from Lupin seed coatings that increases the amount and quality of collagen.
  • Malachite: An important and wonderful mineral for environmentally stressed skin by acting as an anti-oxidant and powerful detoxifier through the stimulation of glutathione reductase (considered the body’s most important cellular antioxidant).
  • MPC Milk Peptides® (milk peptides) - Stimulates Collagen I synthesis by 40%, Hyaluronic acid by 1900%, reduces the depth of wrinkles by 35%, and increases skin smoothness by 17% in 14 days.
  • NAB Arnica ® (Montana Flower Extract & Algae Extract) – High level of Vitamin P, reduces puffiness by 24%, irritation and dark circles by 66%. Proven anti-inflammatory. 
  • NANOBRIGHT, OSKIA’s own encapsulated brightening liposome includes Glutathione – the body’s key antioxidant and tripeptide that unfortunately decreases as we age; natural Arbutin (from Bearberry leaf) both of which inhibit the enzyme Tyrosinase (which stimulates melanin production within the melanocytes); and antioxidants Vitamins C & E. 0.4% of Nanobright inhibits melanin formation by 74%. OSKIA uses 5%.
  • Nano-lipobelle H-AECL: bio-active Vitamins A, C & E.
  • Niacinamide - Increases epidermal production of ceramides and also skin barrier layer proteins and their precursors (keratin, involucrin, filaggrin), 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.
  • O3 Yeast Lysate - Proven to protect DNA and the natural lipid barrier against Ozone. Also reduces fine lines.
  • PhytoCellTec Malus Domestica® (Swiss apple stem cell liposomes) – Nobel prize winning protects against UV, protects cell DNA and reduces wrinkle depth by 15%.
  • Phytoquinescine: derived from einkorn and rich in amino-acids, this patented active prevents oxidative and glycation damage, improves cell functions and tissue integrity to provide anti-ageing benefits. 
  • Prebiotic Oligosaccharide, extracted from Chicory Root, protects the skin’s ecosystem by preventing the growth of harmful bacteria.
  • Ribose® (extracted from corn) – increases cell ATP energy, cell respiration by 37% and reduces wrinkles 30% for firmer, revitalised skin.
  • Rosehip Seed Oil: antioxidant and tissue regenerator with high essential fatty acid content, helping prevent premature ageing, minimise wrinkles and reduce damaged tissue and scarring.
  • Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract: Natural antioxidant from rosemary extract. Spilanthes Acmella Flower Extract: A concentrated oil extract that stimulates biomechanical functions of fibroblasts to enhance density and firmness of the skin and reduce skin roughness.
  • Smithsonite - Chelates heavy metals found in VOC and PM (from industry and exhausts). Also anti-glycation effect and protects DNA.
  • 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 through skin pores.
  • SulforaWhite® (Swiss cress liposomes) - a liposomal preparation of Swiss garden cress sprouts rich in sulforaphane, a powerful antioxidant phytonutrient, to lighten and even skin tone by inhibiting the hormone a-MSH to reduce melanin production by 44% using 0.4%. 
  • Swiss Apple Cell Culture: pioneering active utilising stem cells from rare breed of Swiss apple to stimulate cell maintenance and regeneration.
