Retinoin is the active form of Vitamin A which prevents collagen breakdown and smoothing wrinkles and fine lines.
Vitamin B3 reverses the DNA damage caused by the sun's radiation.
Evening Primrose Oil and Borage Oil are rich in Omega 3,6 and 9 which deeply hydrates the skin and calms inflammation.
Daily topical application of Argan oil has also been shown to improve skin elasticity and skin hydration by restoring the barrier function and maintaining the water-holding capacity. It is also a natural source of Vitamin E, anti-oxidants, squalene, fatty acids, CoQ10 and melatonin!
Pomegranate Kernel Oil and Vitamin E are anti-oxidants which repairs the skin.
Frankincense or Boswellia Serrata is an impressive anti-inflammatory, reduces blemishes and skin irritations.
Immortelle flower (Helichrysum Italicum) extract has acetophenones and flavanoids that inhibit pro-inflammatory mediators. It also has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.
Shea Nut Butter provides deep hydration for mature skin.
Apply at night on clean skin.
Use a sun-block during the day as Vitamin A sloughs the dead layer of skin and makes skin thinner, so may burn more easily if not protected.
Test for allergic reactions.
Apply every few days as Vitamin A can cause skin peeling, redness or skin irritation. When your skin gets used to it, you can use it every night, but it's best to build up slowly. Some skin peeling may occur but this is normal and new, healthy skin will emerge.
