Our Anti-Oxidants

ASTAXANTHIN
A powerful anti-oxidant that is 6,000 times more potent than Vitamin C and 550 times more powerful than Vitamin E. Sourced from fresh water algae, it travels through the food chain to give prawns and flamingos their beautiful bright pink colour. 

GLUTATHIONE
A tripeptide and the body's most powerful cellular anti-oxidant. It also cleverly recycles antioxidants, therefore boosting the power of other anti-oxidants. Like most things its production slows down as we age and this gradual decline of the natural supply of glutathione in the body is believed to be a key marker of many outward signs of ageing. It fiercely protects against cellular degradation and hyper-pigmentation and fights off free-radical attack. It is a combination of three simple building blocks of amino acids — cysteine, glycine and glutamine - and due to its sulphur content also helps detox and remove toxins. MSM, our founding nutrient, naturally boosts Glutathione production within the body when taken orally.

EUK 134
A remarkable self-regenerating Manganese molecule that combines destructive rogue hydrogen & oxygen free-radicals and combines them to form H20. 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.

CO-ENZYME Q10
Enzymatic co-factor (for a variety of enzymatic processes) and well documented free-radical scavenger/Anti-oxidant. It also helps control cell membrane dynamics, which play an important role in protecting cellular integrity from external pollutants.

SULFORAPHANE
A powerful antioxidant phytonutrient found in vegetables such as broccoli and asparagus which has been shown to protect against cancer and diseases if taken internally. Used topically it has powerful brightening effects to even skin tone by inhibiting the hormone a-MSH to reduce melanin production.

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 (see above - considered the body’s most important cellular antioxidant).

TURMERIC 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. It is also a wonderful anti-inflammatory.

VITAMIN C
A well known and well used skincare ingredient which has skin firming properties due to fibroblast generation which also reduces skin permeability. Chelates heavy metals to prevent absorption through skin pores. Vitamin C also good a anti-oxidant capacity and well documented skin health benefits.
