Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid): An active form of Vitamin C occurs naturally in citrus fruits. This potent water-soluble antioxidant protects skin from oxidative damages caused by the sun rays (UVA/UVB radiation). It improves elasticity of skin by enhancing the production of collagen. Helps diminish hyperpigmentation, erythma, and skin redness. Helps render vitamin E more powerful.
Ferulic Acid: A powerful antioxidant found in the cell walls of plants. This ingredient is predominantly effective at preventing sun damage. Research studies demonstrate exposure to ultraviolet light actually increases the antioxidant capacity and efficacy of ferulic acid. Blended synergistically with other antioxidants, ferulic acid renders vitamin C and vitamin E more powerful then when used alone. Natural preventative capabilities of ferulic acid not only prevent premature signs of photo-aging, yet also prevent the formation of skin cancer.
Vitamin E (Alpha-Tocopherol): This antioxidant functions to protect against the harmful effects of sun rays (UVA/UVB radiation) and reactive oxygen radicals. Prevent oxidation by facilitating the removal of free-radical intermediates. Helps boost the performance of your SPF. Promotes epithelialization and enzyme activity for faster wound healing. Helps render vitamin C more powerful.
Hyaluronic Acid: A naturally occurring polysaccharide responsible for tissue hydration and lubrication within the extra-cellular space of bodily tissues. Immediate water-binding and water-attracting attributes fill void spaces between connective collagen and elastin fibers found within the dermal skin layer. Capable of holding 500 times its own weight in water, this powerful moisturizer functions to retain water both above and below the skin surface to keep skin looking plumped, well hydrated, and voluptuous.
