Full-spectrum vitamin E
The organic plum oil provides full-spectrum vitamin E, tocopherols and tocotrienols protect the skin against oxidative stress, prevent UV-induced free radical damage, and have an anti-inflammatory role.
Linoleic (omega-6) and oleic (omega-9) acids are not only anti-inflammatory, but they have skin barrier repair effects as well. They improve skin function and appearance and provide skin with incredible softness on touch. They play a critical role in the structural integrity and skin barrier function.
Rutin, a member of the bioflavonoid family, has protective effects under conditions of oxidative stress, increases elasticity, and decreases the length and number of wrinkles. It possesses potent antioxidant effects and repairs ROS-induced skin aging, aka oxidative-stress-induced damage.
Beta-carotene, lutein, and amazing lycopene are present in our tomato extract and act against cellular damage and the effects of aging. They stimulate collagen and elastin in the skin to increase its density, elasticity, and firmness. They also repair UV-induced damage and reduce water loss, helping to keep your skin hydrated.
Naturally occurring vitamins
Vitamins A, E, K, B1, B2, B6, B12, and naturally occurring vitamin C in our mango extract play an essential role in collagen formation and restoration of healthy skin. They protect cells from damage and water loss, support cell reproduction while reducing inflammation, dryness, and acne. They help to improve conditions such as psoriasis and eczema.
