Why we LOVE these ingredients
OXY 229 Microbiome
This microbiome has a 98% natural origin and contains mitochondrial respiration activators to boost oxygen uptake by 750%. It also revives dull skin, regulates sebum, and activates cell turnover by up to 25%. Oxy 229 microbiome reduces Corynebacterium Kroppenstedtii levels, a sebum loving bacterium found in the skin microbiome associated with inflammation and rosacea. Regulating the skin microbiome is essential for a natural, healthy glow.
Jojoba oil is an ancient oil used for centuries, and now it’s backed by science. It comprises a similar constitution to natural human sebum; it’s naturally high in Vitamin E[RG1] and is gorgeous for nourishing the skin cellular membranes. The unique fatty alcohol esters in jojoba oil are particularly unique, as they are a similar structure to human skin sebum. This makes it valuable for all skin conditions, particularly those with altered sebaceous barriers such as psoriasis, rosacea, dermatitis or general redness. Jojoba oil is lovely for keeping skin hydrated, luscious, healthy and vibrant.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant; it is also a brightening and collagen-boosting nutrient. The L-isomer form of this extract is ideal for optimal utilisation and skin penetration, making it a valuable anti-inflammatory. It’s renowned for reducing hyperpigmentation, redness, and signs of photoaging. Vitamin C cleanses and protects skin from carcinogens and inflammatory compounds associated with skin matrix degradation (e.g. reactive oxygen species, sunlight, and pollutants). Studies have shown that the levels of vitamin C in the skin deplete after exposure to the sun. L-ascorbic acid accelerates wound healing and can even reduce signs of melasma. It’s an all-around skin-loving nutrient and a powerful one at that!
Our nano-formulation of resveratrol is a master skin antioxidant leading to deep skin penetration and dermal utilisation. Resveratrol has demonstrated excellent results in anti-ageing, anti-inflammatory, UV protection, and collagen-stimulating activity. When it comes to healthy skin and wrinkle prevention, it’s all about antioxidants and optimal skin matrix integrity. Research has indicated that resveratrol can significantly improve skin mRNA gene expression and aid in the prevention of skin associated diseases such as cancer. Resveratrol can ameliorate the ageing of human skin by significantly stimulating SIRT 1, extracellular matrix proteins (collagen, elastin) and inhibit dermal-ageing biomarkers. This is an ideal cosmeceutical to enhance skin fullness, texture quality, wrinkle prevention and overall glow.
CoQ10 is an endogenous (made from within) antioxidant known to directly protect our cellular mitochondria (cells energy powerhouse), and its benefits on anti-ageing mechanisms are now highly researched. It’s topically renowned for reducing the depth of periorbital wrinkles, epidermal oxidation, inflammatory reactive oxygen species (ROS) as well as enhancing healthy cellular proliferation. Combined with Vitamin E, CoQ10 is highly penetrable and bioavailable into the skin's dermal layers, leaving your skin feeling rejuvenated, smooth and firm.
L-sodium hyaluronate is a powerfully hydrating, chirally correct and encapsulated form of Sodium Hyaluronate. It’s a natural mucopolysaccharide which provides essential viscoelasticity and transport function to the skin. It’s another excellent compound known to reduce facial wrinkles and adds volume under the skin’s surface. Hyaluronate is a deep skin rejuvenating hydrator, perfect for replenishing dry, sagging skin that needs an extra boost.
Niacinamide is an amide of vitamin B-3 and it’s leading the way in balancing skin pigment, healthy pH levels and immune function. With the right formulation, niacinamide is antipruritic (anti-itch), antimicrobial, photo-protective, sebostatic (inhibits excess amounts of sebum naturally), and naturally brightens your skin. This cosmeceutical nutrient works by regulating DNA transcription processes – making this gem highly anti-inflammatory on the deepest levels. It bodes the ability to drastically hinder oxidative stressors and regulate keratinocyte (skin cell) immune communication. If you suffer from comedones, fungal issues, redness, rosacea, uneven skin tone or inflammation, this is another beautiful ingredient to nourish and support your overall skin quality.
Snap-8 is an anti-ageing god when it comes to facial muscle contraction relaxation and has been shown to reduce expression lines by 64%! Uh – yes please. Its main mechanism of action is to reduce facial acetylcholine release via inhibition of the SNARE complex. The SNARE complex regulates small membrane proteins and the function. By helping to relax facial muscles, you reduce and prevent wrinkle formation over time. Think of it as a much safer and significantly less invasive form of botox!
The D-alpha form of Vitamin E is highly bioavailable, which will deeply feed essential keratinocyte membranes and their intricate functions. Our skin membranes are made from fatty acids – we looove fatty acids. Vitamin E is all about skin rejuvenation, and synergistically combined with Vitamin-C, CoQ10, and niacinamide, you’ve got yourself an advanced, gentle anti-ageing cream. Vitamin E is excellent for reducing UVB-induced lipid peroxidation, regulating fatty acid skin balance, recovering the physical integrity of the skin barrier and reducing wrinkles, fine lines and hyperpigmentation. It’s the ultimate skin regeneration nutrient, which is why it’s a key ingredient in our Happy Skin REVIVE Hydrating Cream.
Cococin is a beautiful skin electrolyte sourced from high-quality and sustainable coconuts. This extract helps to feed the skin cellular matrix all the necessary cofactor electrolytes to keep your skin's structural integrity and functionality optimally working. Which is exactly what we want!
