The Research

Human skin possesses a perfectly balanced network of antioxidant vitamins, minerals, enzymes and proteins that work in unison to prevent the formation of harmful, ageing free radicals and glycation products resulting from daily environmental exposure.

These same organic molecules are also the building blocks of healthy, glowing skin, boosting the synthesis of skin-firming collagen and elastin, while helping to control pigmentation and refine surface texture.

As we age, and as a result of sun and environmental damage, our natural levels of skin antioxidants are diminished, making topical supplementation essential.
