The active ingredients and how they work
(Hydrolysed Hyaluronic Acid with anti ageing effect) Hyaluronic acid plays a decisive role in keeping skin appearing young and smooth. It works in many different ways: It stimulates the cells of the connective tissues in the skin to produce collagen and other essential substances that control skin elasticity It prevents skin from drying out through its high water retention properties It promotes nutrient supply to the skin It is effective in trapping free radicals, mitigating the harmful effects that various external factors may have on the skin Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occuring substance found in various tissues and organs throughout the body including the epidermis, connective tissues, cartilage, synovial fluid, the eyes and more. Hyaluronic acid attracts and retains water, an important quality for keeping these areas of the body in good condition.
Glucose Stabilised Vitamin C: The two parts of the Glucose Vitamin C molecule remain joined until they come in contact with the skin, ensuring the stability of the vitamin. Enzymes and alpha-glucosidases on the surface of the skin break the link between the vitamin C and glucose, releasing vitamin C into the skin for intracellular absorption without detriment to or loss of its properties, ensuring its proper functioning resulting in:increased collagen production, a brightening effect, the prevention of inflammation and sun damage to the skin. Keeping skin young: Increase in collagen production Brightening effect: Obstruction of tyrosinase activity which is responsible for melanin production Antioxidant activity: Reduction of existing melanin and neutralisation of free radicals Prevention of inflammation and sun damage to the skin.
Important: Many serums contain non stabilised Vitamin C, causing oxidation. These serums are not effective as they do not penetrate the skin, but cover and discolour our pores. restores the skin’s barrier function; moisturising, soothing and nourishing imperfect skin, softening it and improving elasticity.

It keeps the skin firm, soft and supple for longer. aloe vera gel moisturises, refreshes and softens the skin and contains antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and regenerating properties.

More a bush than a plant, it has been traditionally used by Native American communities for its medicinal properties.
Also known as tocopherol, is the most effective fat-soluble antioxidant. It slows down the ageing process of the skin cells and combats free radicals that damage the skin. Vitamin E also protects against environmental factors that can damage the skin such as pollution and the sun, as well as having a regenerative effect on the skin. It increases microcirculation (blood flow) in the skin, ensuring increased tissue nourishment, improving skin elasticity, and reducing wrinkles. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant.
The colour, text and smell of natural products are a result of the combination of ingredients that they contain. Our Super C Facial Serum smells of orange, one of its ingredients.
