VITAMIN A - stimulates the dermis where collagen, elastin and blood vessels are, so it reduces wrinkles and increases blood flow to the surface of the skin.
VITAMIN E - prevents the formation of wrinkles by blocking free radical damage. It also treats wrinkles by supporting new skin cell growth and promoting cell regeneration.
VITAMIN K - is essential in aiding the body’s process of blood clotting, which helps the body heal and fight infection. It also improves skin elasticity and help to reduce the appearance of dark circles under the eyes.
WHAT IS AN ANTIOXIDANT?
The skin is our largest organ, so it is important to take care of it. Antioxidants
protect skin by fighting and limiting the production of free radicals, which can damage skin cells.
Antioxidants in skin care products benefit the health and appearance of the skin, and help reduce the visible signs of ageing.
Polyphenols - either applied or absorbed into the skin help fight free radicals by combining with them to prevent the damage of healthy cells. Polyphenols can help to repair damaged skin and restore elasticity to prematurely ageing skin.
Phytosterols not only stop the slow-down of collagen production that can be caused by the sun, they actually encourage new collagen production.
WHAT IS A FREE RADICAL?
Free radicals are minute chemical particles that are the result of an inflammatory chemical process – they are healthy cells turned bad as a result of trauma; the more we have, the faster our skin ages and the faster we look older.
Free radicals chip away at cell walls and DNA. This degenerative process is progressive and can happen throughout our body in every organ. Free radical damage can be cause by stress, pollution, unhealthy lifestyle, chemicals etc.
