Key Ingredients and Benefits
SenePlex® Complex – Kinetic Enzyme that Increases cellular renewal.
Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) – considered as a plant lipid. Lipids are the oil and fat components of skin that prevent moisture evaporation from the skin and provide lubrication to the skin’s surface. Lipids are considered as a natural moisturiser.
Olea Europea (Olive) Fruit Oil – a natural antioxidant high in Unsaponifiables, which is a large group of compounds called plant sterolins. This ingredient is considered a must for emolliency in skincare. Two of the natural oils with the highest Unsaponifiables are shea butter and olive oil followed closely by avocado oil and sesame oil. They have a superior moisturising effect on the upper layer of the skin and can aid in reducing scars.
Mineral Oil – helps maintain skin’s moisture content.
Algae (Seaweed) Extract – hydrates, protects skin from the sun and softens the skin. It is essential in the penetration of the top layer of the stratum corneum and enhances the skin’s ability to repair itself.
Cymbidium Grandiflorum (Orchid) Flower Extract – a plant native to the South Pacific, which has long been a source of excellence for the preparation of emollient products. This powerful anti-oxidant provides free-radical protection and maximum moisturisation. The orchid extract is very effective as a sunscreen.
Tocopheryl (and Tocopheryl Acetate) – Vitamin E, essential for maintaining the activities of enzymes in the cells and for the formation of red blood cells. Vitamin E is an antioxidant and has been shown to inhibit skin cancer and aid in the healing of skin ailments. Vitamin E is a dynamic weapon against premature ageing and combating wrinkles by neutralising free radicals to stop the chain reaction of molecular damage and to protect the skin against oxidation. It’s also believed to protect skin from the sun’s ultraviolet ray’s once absorbed into skin.
Retinyl Palmitate – It is fundamental for increasing skin elasticity and thickening of the epidermis and the dermis.
Panthenol – Vitamin B complex is essential for formation of new healthy tissues.
Yeast Extract – a dietary source of folic acid (a member of the vitamin B complex) aids in formation of new healthy tissues and promotes new cell formation.
Glucosamine HCL – enhances the body’s ability to manufacture collagen.
Sodium Hyaluronate – a ubiquitous carbohydrate polymer that is part of the extracellular matrix. It is a humectant about 100 times more effective as a humectant than Glycerin.
Urea – an organic compound topical antiseptic, buffering agent, humectants and skin conditioner.
Beeswax (Cruelty Free) – a natural wax produced in the bee hive of honey bees.
Phenoxyethanol – an oily liquid used as a bactericide and topical antiseptic.
Butylparaben – anti-fungal and suspension fluid.
