Highly effective antioxidant-packed Sun-Protective Sweet Orange Facial Serum combines the best of modern skin care science with botanical extracts and ingredients used to energize, revitalize, and nourish the skin.
Coenzyme Q10 improves skin elasticity while reducing the effects of pollution, toxins, and stress. Coenzyme Q10 naturally decreases as we age, yet it is a necessary enzyme bringing energy to the cells. Healthy cells are plump, regular in form, and make our skin look young. Including Coenzyme Q10 in skin care is essential in fighting the signs of aging.
Ingredients to restore essential barrier function and protect skin from oxidative stress include naturally occurring ceramide lipids and Squalane isolated from olive oil, which Mediterranean people considered as a healing gift from the gods. A healthy barrier function is essential in maintaining clear skin. When the barrier function is disrupted, bacteria can enter the skin which leads to skin ailments such as eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis. Ceramides naturally occur as a lipid barrier between the skin cells. This premium ingredient will help protect your skin from environmental toxins disrupting your skin barrier. Skin hydration is improved with hyaluronic acid, organic aloe leaf juice, and emulsifying wax.
Natural polyphenols from extracts of blueberry and raspberry, plus Vitamins C and E are contained in Sun-Protective Sweet Orange Facial Serum. These antioxidants help to prevent skin damage and hyperpigmentation by quenching inflammation causing reactive oxygen species which arise from UV exposure. Plants including Tamanu have evolved compounds to protect themselves from damaging UV radiation. Those same skin-healing whole-plant compounds help to reduce inflammation and the appearance of sunburn. Since sun exposure can lead to accelerated aging, you need natural and safe UV absorbing ingredients in your skin care to increase the strength and longevity of skin while slowing the appearance of aging skin.
Ingredients traditionally used to improve the appearance of skin and reduce skin irritation include Tamanu Oil, used by indigenous people of the South Pacific to protect skin from photo-damage and restore the skin health including reduction of fine wrinkles. Tamanu oil’s benefits don’t stop there. Tamanu oil has been shown to contribute to wound healing including reduction in the appearance of scars. Tamanu oil has also been traditionally used to treat acne. Gotu Kola extract, used in Indian Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years and Orange peel oil, both provide cleansing and skin soothing benefits. Vitamins C and E are potent antioxidants that neutralize free radicals and promote skin regeneration.
100% active ingredients include a nourishing base of organic Aloe Vera, while protection against oxidation damage is provided by polyphenols from organic fruit extracts, green tea and rooibos extracts, and calendula tincture.
