AHA NATURAL FRUIT ACIDS: are a concentrated blend of five botanical extracts: bilberry, sugar cane, orange, lemon and sugar maple. These extracts contain several naturally occurring alpha hydroxy acids (lactic, glycolic, citric, malic and tartaric acids) when topically applied, stimulates collagen synthesis and boosts skin elasticity. A combination of all these AHAs results in a truly multifunctional material, increasing the rate of cell renewal.
ALOE VERA EXTRACT ORGANIC: Aloe Vera has been used since ancient times to treat and cure a variety of skin conditions. The juice heals the skin and reduces redness and itching. Soothes, heals and hydrates.

CUCUMBER ORGANIC: Rich in Vit C the juice from cucumber has both strong moisture binding abilities as well as mild astringent effects. Cucumber extract is soothing and helps relieve the puffiness of the skin. It also helps firms, tones and tighten.
DMAE (Dimethylaminoethanol Bitrate): Often called "the Face Lift In a Jar". This little gem has become one of the must have in face preparations because of its reported ability to increase skin firmness, plump lips, reduce facial sag, fine lines and reinforce the skins foundation of collagen and elastin and that DMAE actually makes cells live longer. When applied to the skin it stimulates acetylcholine release which triggers a response in the muscles of the face keeping them taught. This activity creates a firmer tighter facial tone and less sagging. DMAE is used topically to reduce fine lines and wrinkles showing a noticeable difference within 20 minutes of application although not to the extent of a face lift- we need to be realistic here.
GINSENG SIBERIAN ORGANIC: Very high in polysaccharides & glycoprotein's, that smooth wrinkles and help reduce premature ageing.

Hyaluronic Acid: Sodium Hyaluronate is the sodium salt of Hyaluronic acid. Sodium Hyaluronate has a smaller molecular size than Hyaluronic acid, causing it to easily penetrate the skin's surface, it plays an important role in tissue lubrication and hydration, elasticity and cellular function. Used as moisturiser, hyaluronic acid results in increased smoothness, softening and decreased wrinkles. Is an excellent hydrator and frequently used during post-peel procedures to soothe new skin cells. It is used extensively by the cosmetic industry and dermatologists in anti-aging moisturising products, as it absorbs and retains water over 1000 times its weight. Our Hyaluronic Acid is from bacterial fermentation using glucose that is corn derived to create the hyaluronic acid in a biofermentation process. The product is still classified as natural and used in natural and organic cosmetic manufacturing.

A thick oil that provides powerful hydration and is suitable for all skin types, especially ideal for older mature skin. Highly emollient, this oil penetrates deeply into the skin without feeling greasy. Replenishes lost palmitoleic acid of the sebum in human skin which decrease with ages.
MARINE COLLAGEN (seaweed derived): Our Marine Collagen is extracted from the natural seaweed variety Porphyra tenera with water. It is enzymatically hydrolyzed to achieve an average molecular weight of approximately 1000. It is exclusively gained from Non-GMO ingredients and it is free of any GMO-fragments. As we age our supply of collagen is diminished or degraded leading to laugh lines and wrinkles in the skin, marine collagen is rich in vitamins and essential sea minerals to rejuvenates the skin from beneath the surface to help boost collagen production, stimulates and reduces the appearance of deep wrinkles and fine lines encouraging oxygen through the skin, increasing firmness, tone and elasticity.
Niacinamide (Vitamin B3): for DNA repair and energy production. Prevent skin from losing water content, and stimulate microcirculation in the dermis.
OLIVE FRUIT OIL VIRGIN: Anti-oxidant. Contains high levels of Omega 9 essential fatty acids.
Pectin: is a naturally occurring substance (a polyscaccaride) derived from fruits used in cosmetics as an emulsifier and thickening agent, also used for making jams and jellies.

PRESERVATIVE SYSTEM: Phenoxyethanol and Ethylhexylglycerin: (semi-synthetic preservative).
PROLINE: is a non-essential amino acid. This means that it can be synthesized by the human body. Aids collagen formation and helps to contain the loss of collagen due to the aging process. Proline is necessary for the body to produce cartilage and collagen.
ROSEHIP OIL ORGANIC: Rosehip oil is a rich source of Omega 3, 6 & 9 essential fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants and trans-retinoic acid a natural source of Vitamin A (Retinol) which helps to fight against premature ageing. It is known to help treat dry, irritated, sun damaged skin, minimizes scaring and stretch marks, keeps collagen and elastin tightly linked reducing wrinkles and signs of premature aging. Nourishes and softens dry skin.
ROSEMARY ORGANIC: Anti-oxidant, tonic, purifies and cleanses.
RETINYL PALMITATE: (Not to be confused with Retinol) is a less irritating form of retinol, it is an ingredient composed of palmitic acid and retinol (Vitamin A). Retinyl palmitate converts into retinol (or vitamin A), which in turn is converted into retinoic acid by specialized enzymes in the skin. Retinoic acid facilitates communication between cells, encouraging aging cells to continue their renewal process. Encourages cellular turnover, collagen and elastin production to prevent the appearance of aging skin, fine lines and wrinkles.
SERINE: is a nonessential amino acid and skin conditioning agent.
SHEA BUTTER ORGANIC: produced from the nut of the karite tree in West Africa, improves elasticity of the skin, increases local blood circulation, improving elimination of waste. Shea Butter has been used to improve skin moisturisation, improve the skin texture and suppleness and to diminish skin wrinkles, but also to obtain a healing effect in cases related to hand dermatitis, sun burns and scars. In conclusion, Shea Butter is an appreciated ingredient to combat the signs of skin ageing.

VITAMIN E NATURAL (mixed Tocopherals): is a strong anti-oxidant, necessary for effective utilization of oxygen in the skin tissue at 5% it improving skin hydration and plumpness by 36%.
WHITE TEA ORGANIC: A powerful antioxidant more powerful than green tea, protects skin from free radical damage that causes premature aging. Protective tonic for ageing skin, diminishes the appearance of wrinkles or fine lines. Protects from drying effects of the sun. The polyphenols in white tea act as free radical scavengers soaking up these unstable molecules before they can damage the collagen layer. Green tea extract has also been shown to soothe, heal and calm irritated skin.
