About the Ingredients
Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate – Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate is the most stable form of topical vitamin C. It is an oil-soluble Vitamin C ester that is far superior to ascorbic acid and far more expensive due to it's amazing properties. It is stable and does not oxidize, it will not irritate skin, it penetrates skin much more effectively, and it has better antioxidant activity and is more effective at promoting collagen production. One study found that Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate surpasses the penetration of L-Ascorbic acid by three times and reaches both the epidermis and dermis. It’s positive effects on skin are noticeable fairly quickly and its benefits are quite outstanding.
It has strong antioxidant activity, inhibiting lipid peroxidation.
It can repair UV damage and prevent melanogenesis (hyperpigmentation), thereby creating a more even skin tone. It brightens and clarifies skin. Studies have shown that Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate stimulates collagen production, thereby improving elasticity and reducing wrinkles.
At 0.1% reduces melanin synthesis by 80%
At 10% eliminated age spots in 16 weeks
At 3% in vivo reduces Delta-L value by 15% vs. placebo (22 people), a way to measure whitening effect
Increases collagen synthesis at least twice as much as ascorbic acid
Protects the cells against UV-B better than other esters of Vitamin C
Niacinamide – Niacinamide is one of the most versatile ingredients for skin. It’s a form of Vitamin B3, essential for the body and a wonderful and powerful skin care ingredient. In studies, Niacinamide has been shown to stimulate cells in the dermis to produce more collagen.
Niacinamide is the perfect companion to Vitamin C. It works together with Vitamin C to treat wrinkles and fine lines, firm and boost elasticity, brighten and create even skin tone, and reduce UV damage. Niacinamide can help acne, eczema, and other inflammatory skin conditions. It also clinically reduces pore size and improves skin texture. Niacinamide can also help to increase the natural production of ceramides, for increased moisture and skin barrier protection.
Kakadu Plum Fruit is native to the Arnhem Land Region of Australia's Northern Territory. It is a very special fruit, having the highest natural Vitamin C content ever discovered in a food source. Kakadu Plum brings radiance and luster to the skin, promoting the production of collagen and working to repair skin damage at a deep level. The presence of gallic acid makes the fruit antibacterial, antifungal, and astringent.
Indian Gooseberry – also known as Amla (Latin for "soul"), has the highest naturally occurring vitamin C content ever discovered. In addition, notable levels of B vitamins and Beta Carotene are found, greatly assisting in the protection of skin from free radicals. A nice variety of minerals and amino acids, known for their beauty promoting qualities, are also contained within the berries.
Camu Camu Berry – is native to the Amazonian rainforest. A very healing botanical, Camu Camu has traditionally been used for treating wounds. The vitamin C that is present contributes to this skin repairing effect, as it promotes cellular growth, and invites youthful skin as it encourages collagen formation.
Acerola Cherry – also known as Barbados Cherry and Wild Crape Myrtle, is a truly remarkable fruit. It contains 65 times more Vitamin C than oranges, and also has the greatest antioxidant activity of any fruit. Acerola Cherries contain over 150 skin-benefiting phytonutrients, including ample amounts of Vitamin A, B Vitamins, and minerals (including good amounts of magnesium). This fruit is mineral rich, and also features anthocyanins, which are astringent and anti-inflammatory. Acerola BioFerment is a combination of Lactobacillus (highly beneficial Probiotics) and Acerola Cherry for smoother, healthier, more radiant skin.
Ferula Foetida – powerfully targets hyperpigmentation and brightens skins appearance. Its main constituents are terpenes, sulphur compounds, and ferulic acid esters. Ferula Foetida bolsters healing and decreases melanocyte activity in areas where old blemishes may have left behind discoloration. It is equally powerful in fading age spots.
Organic Licorice Root – is rich is glycyrrhetic acid, which has compelling anti-inflammatory properties. Also present in licorice root are special substances that interfere with melanin production. Dark spots and hyperpigmentation are thus targeted and resolved through its use.
Alpha Lipoic Acid – also known as the universal antioxidant, is compelling to the skin in its quest for radiance. It brings benefit to both the inside and the outside of the skin's cells through its capacity to penetrate the skin's surface and cell membranes. It is thus able to provide energy to the cells through its increase in cellular metabolism. It has the remarkable ability to reduce cellular inflammation, regenerate and activate vitamins C and E present in the tissues, and deeply protects the skin. It also stimulates AP-1 (an activator protein that regulates gene expression), which helps rebuild collagen.
Botanical Hyaluronic Acid (Cassia Angustifolia Extract) – is a natural extract from the seeds of the Indian Senna Plant. Hyaluronic Acid is naturally produced by the body and is found in skin. It binds collagen and elastin, helps with tissue repair, and retains moisture and plumpness. As we age, Hyaluronic Acid diminishes from our bodies. The Senna Extract, Cassia Angustifolia, is rich in polysaccharides and galactomannans, which mimic the Hyaluronic Acid in the body is thus a wonderful natural skin treatment for supple, smooth, hydrated skin and lips. In fact, studies show that it is superior to synthetic and other forms of Hyaluronic Acid in its ability to deeply penetrate the skin with high concentrations of healing, moisturizing, and plumping plant molecules. Botanical Hyaluronic Acid is a sugar molecule that has the amazing ability to attract and hold more than 1,000 times its own weight in moisture, The compounds in the Indian Senna Seed, therefore, effectively repair dehydrated skin, plump skin, reduce lines, and have anti-inflammatory healing properties.
MSM – is a true "beauty mineral." It is required for collagen and keratin production. It helps to strengthen aging and damaged skin and build supple, healthy tissue. It also fortifies and thickens hair and nails and is anti-inflammatory and detoxifying.
Organic Green Tea – is highly recognized for its rich concentration of antioxidants, which contribute to its powerful anti-inflammatory effect. It is known in its ability to tone the skin, alleviate sun damage through its neutralization of free radicals, and helps sooth the redness, irritation and sensitivity that accompany skin conditions such as psoriasis and rosacea. Green tea also contains methylxanthines, which stimulate the microcirculation of the skin, thus contributing to a healthy skin tone. In addition, green tea demonstrates a powerful inhibitory action on collagenase (a type of enzyme that actually reduces and breaks down collagen), which is why green tea is so strong in its ability to promote healthy collagen maintenance and production, leading to firm and elastic skin.
Organic Rosehip Oil – is rich with antioxidant vitamins A and C. It also has an impressive EFA content, bringing deep nutrition to your skin. It is absorbed and utilized by the skin quickly and efficiently. Rosehip seed oil restores and protects, as it increases cell turnover rate and carries its many potencies into the tissues.
Organic Seabuckthorn Oil – is brimming with a rich array of skin loving nutrients, including high levels of vitamins A, C, E and K, folate, carotenoids and sterols, flavonoids and fatty acids. One such component of Sea Buckthorn is Palmitoleic acid, an omega-7 fatty acid that is naturally present in the skin. As levels of Palmitoleic acid are optimized in the skin, a beautiful gleam is experienced. Sea Buckthorn has also been shown to normalize sebum production, aiding in its ability to regulate many types of inflammation on the skin.
