Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant with many benefits for skin. Research shows that high strengths of vitamin C (10% and higher) are particularly effective and provide a host of benefits for skin. It inhibits melanin production in the skin which helps to lighten hyperpigmentation and brown spots, evens out skin tone, enhances skin radiance, and protects the skin from environmental stressors such as free radicals.
Hyaluronic Acid has an amazing ability to attract and retain moisture - up to 1,000 times its weight in water - which makes it a wonderful inner moisturizer. As we age, our production decreases which can lead to wrinkles and dry skin. Use of hyaluronic acid can restore moisture and elasticity, leading to smoother, plumper, and more radiant skin.
Clinical studies have shown topical niacinamide (Vitamin B3) to be effective in improving skin texture and the appearance of hyperpigmented spots, with improvement in red blotchiness, the reduction of the severity of fine lines, and it has also been shown to stimulate collagen and ceramide production.
N-acetyl glucosamine is considered to be a “skin identical ingredient”, meaning it’s found in our skin in the spaces between the cells, and it is used to maintain skin’s barrier abilities and reduce dryness. It can increase collagen production, moisture content, elasticity, exfoliation, and increase the speed of wound healing. N-acetyl glucosamine has been shown to reduce hyperpigmentation, especially when combined with Niacinamide, and is an amino sugar that has skin exfoliating properties similar to alpha and beta hydroxyl acids without the irritation.
When used in formulations over the course of three to four weeks, dl-Panthenol, or Vitamin B5, has the potential to improve the appearance of the skin, including dryness, roughness, scaling, pruritus and erythema. Further, its moisturizing properties improve hydration, reducing water loss and maintaining skin elasticity and softness
Alpha hydroxy acids have been shown to promote smoother, younger looking skin by increasing the rate of cell renewal. AHA’s weaken the bond that hold dead skin together, and when these bonds are weakened, the skin shreds off the outermost layer of dead skin cells.
Carrot Seed has one of the highest, natural, sources of Beta Carotene, and is a fantastic antioxidant. Combining skin-mending vitamin A, collagen-boosting vitamin C and moisturizing vitamin E, this essential oil helps smooth lines and repair sun damage, scars and any other skin trauma.
The antioxidants found in Pomegranate extract combined with phytonutrients, minerals, fatty acids and vitamins work in synergy to plump the skin and promote collagen production. Collagen is the main structural protein found in the skin and connective tissues and it's absolute vital for a bouncy, youthful appearance.
Ginseng's coffee-like energizing properties and powerful antioxidants help brighten and revitalize your complexion. It works protect your skin from free radicals, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and can help boost the circulation of your skin's smallest blood vessels, in turn ramping up the synthesis of collagen.
Shiitake mushrooms are a dense source of kojic acid, which works to lighten hyperpigmentation of all kinds, ranging from acne to sun spots. They are also packed with anti-inflammatories, and anti-oxidants, to guard your skin against environmental damage, while easing conditions like acne, eczema, and rosacea.
Reishi mushrooms are full of beta-glucans, which are natural sugars that can penetrate through multiple layers of skin to help calm dryness and itchiness. They also contain polysaccharides, which boost skin’s natural ability to retain water, and massive doses of antioxidants that help deal with signs of premature aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles.
To use, apply 1-3 drops to a clean, slightly damp face and gently massage into skin. Follow with Radiance Facial Oil or moisturizer of your choice.
Please do a patch test before use. It is not recommended for use with any other facial scrub or chemical exfoliator. Please apply sunscreen after using as alpha hydroxy acids can make skin more sensitive to the sun.
Due to the use of natural ingredients, color morphing or color differences from batch to batch is natural and normal. Shelf life approximately 6 months.
