Co-Enzyme Q10 (CoQ10 / Ubiquinone)
CoQ10 is an important component of the skin’s natural antioxidant defence system and is easily depleted by free radical and environmental damage. CoQ10 is lipid soluble and absorbs readily into the skin where it protects from UV induced damage and improves the appearance of wrinkles. CoQ10 also increases the production of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) in the skin. GAGs are natural moisturising factors that hold 1000 times their weight in water, and have a plumping, hydrating effect on the skin. Replenishing the skin with added CoQ10 can have a protective effect on skin cells and structures and assist in preventing premature aging.
A potent antioxidant that protects the skin from UV induced free radical damage, which is a major contributor to all signs of aging on the skin.
Vitamin F (Essential Fatty Acids)
Essential fatty acids (EFAs) replenish the skin and strengthen the skin barrier. EFAs are essential for maintaining a supple, healthy complexion.
Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide)
Increases the level of the skin’s own antioxidant defence enzymes. Vitamin B3 also evens out skin tone, reduces redness and irritation, improves epidermal barrier function and decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Milk Thistle Extract (Silybum Marianum)
Contains a potent compound known as silymarin, which has antioxidant, photo-protective and anti-inflammatory properties.
Aloe has many applications in skincare due to its high concentration of active compounds, which provide soothing and healing effects. Aloe can also prevent uneven skin tone due to an active constituent known as aloesin, which is known to reduce pigmentation by inhibiting the enzyme tyrosinase which is responsible for melain production.
