18 antioxidants* defend your client’s skin from the chemicals common to all skin problems: free radicals. Over a dozen types of these highly unstable molecules are known to attack healthy cells and tissues, triggering inflammation molecules that literally rip skin apart – aggravating acne, aging, age spots, surface dryness and much more.

After almost sixty years of research, molecular biologists have identified three species (families) of free radicals and pro-oxidants that damage the skin.

  1. Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) Most damaging of all radical families. ROS has the most members. Originates with the air we breathe, sunlight, stress, tobacco smoke, smog. Attacks all areas of cells, mutates DNA, destroys skin’s moisture barrier, destroys the dermis, begins and aggravates inflammation – the bottomline of aging and other skin problems.
  2. Reactive Carbonyl Species (RCS) A direct result of drinking alcohol, eating sugar & “browned” foods, plus the interplay with ROS and RNS, RCS hardens sugars to form a “crème brulee” coating on dermal proteins, leading to sagging skin, deep wrinkles, dark spots and inflammation.
  3. Reactive Nitrogen Species (RNS) Is involved in all forms of inflammation and worsens the damage of ROS & RCS. Produced by fumes from nitrogen-rich soil, smog, tobacco smoke – virtually all areas of our environment.

These three free radical species and their members are the bottomline of virtually every problem
skin faces in its lifetime, including:

  • Wrinkles
  • Loss of firmness
  • Sun damage
  • Tanning
  • Age spots
  • Surface dryness
  • Skin tightness
  • Dehydration
  • Crepiness
  • Redness
  • Acne flare-ups
  • Irritation
  • Sensitive skin
  • Inflammation

Although skin over the age of 30 is most affected by free radical damage, skin of any age, condition or ethnicity can benefit from the defense delivered by these 18 antioxidants. This complex should be added to every AM/PM skin care routine.

Highlight Ingredients:

  • 6 Superfruits - Acai Berry, Gogi and Noni fruits, Mangosteen, Pomegranate and Coffee Berry – rank among the most powerful using the natural antioxidant grading system*.
  • White and Green teas - neutralize free radicals from smog, tobacco smoke and other forms of air pollution for fresh, hydrated, comfortable skin – no matter how bad the air gets.
  • Astaxanthin - The most potent antioxidant carotenoid found to date. An orange pigment from microalgae, it is 1000 times stronger than vitamin E, protects from inflammation, surface dryness, DNA damage by UV radiation and ozone, and interrupts the aging process aggravated by sugar, browned foods and alcohol.
  • Ergothioneine - A superior antioxidant to CoQ10 and Idebenone, this unique amino acid found in mushrooms is the key energizing antioxidant for your cells. Protects from ozone in smog and plane cabins, brightens skin and interrupts the aging process aggravated by sugar, browned foods and alcohol.
  • Garden Sprout extract - supports your skin’s natural detoxifying enzymes – enhancing cellular resistance to and the elimination of environmental toxins.
  • Pear, Hibiscus and Assafoetida - protect from sunlight-derived free radicals that damage DNA and are at the root of wrinkle formation, inflammation and skin sensitivity.
  • Sunflower and Safflower - oils rich in Omega-6 keep your skin soft, hydrated and calm by fighting off free radicals that destroy skin’s natural moisture barrier.
  • Thermus Thermophillus Ferment - extract repairs and protects against heat-activated free radicals that destroy DNA, cell membranes and skin-protecting lipids.
  • Lipochroman-6 - a vitamin E-like molecule – targets nitrogen free radicals known to damage DNA, alter youthening proteins, increase inflammation and trigger cell death.
  • * Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) measures antioxidant strength in foods and supplements. Developed by the National Institute on Aging in the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

This product has definitely helped my skin for the better, especially in this summer heat! I mix about one pump with my moisturizer in the morning, and it not only acts as an additional protectant shield from the sun, but always helps moisturize and reduce redness. One of my favorite products!
