Ascorbyl Palmitate: An effective collagen builder and free-radical scavenging ingredient essential to healthy skin. With the advantage of being lipid (fat) soluble, it can penetrate the skin and deliver antioxidants faster than the water soluble forms of Vitamin C.
Renovage: Oil soluble anti-aging chemical compound; Renovage works with a component of the DNA of the skin, called telomeres. Telomeres appear as caps on the strands of DNA that are found within the skin and have a finite life span, and shorten over time. Throughout one’s life and at the cellular level, telomeres shorten and are eventually depleted. Once a sufficient number of telomeres succumb, we begin to see deep lines, wrinkles and sagging in the facial area. This potent active ingredient facilitates cells and corrects on a cellular level, because Renovage works at the DNA level; it not only assists fine lines but also reduces redness and pore size as well as improves skin tone and texture.
Vitamin E (Tocopherol): Reduces dryness by helping skin retain its natural moisturizers. Also, vitamin E’s potent ability to neutralize damaging free radicals has earned it the nickname “the protector.” When it’s used before UV exposure, skin is less red, swollen, and dry.
Elix-IR™: Knotgrass extract – Protects dermis fibers from global sun damage (UV and Infrared) Increases firmness and reduces the appearance of wrinkles to prevent premature skin photo aging.
Date Fruit Extract: Date Palm extract contains compounds that act in synergy to help delay visible effects of aging in the skin, including:
Phytosterols for barrier function, Ursolic Acid to regenerate the skin, antioxidants and Isoflavones for age-defying properties.
The extract has also been proven to help eliminate toxins from the skin, and to increase type 1 collagen synthesis, which is responsible for keeping the internal structure of fibers in the skin plump and firm.
