LITTLE ABOUT THE INGREDIENTS
Sodium ascorbyl phosphate
Sodium ascorbyl phosphate (SAP) is a naturally occurring water-soluble derivative of vitamin C. It is the most stable form of vitamin C, which means it does not oxidize. It is an antioxidant that reduces oxidative stress by neutralizing free radicals, effectively slowing down the aging process and slowing down the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. SAP has the ability to penetrate the epidermis without causing irritation.
We all know that UVA and UVB radiation from the sun causes degenerative effects that accelerate the aging process. Fortunately, SAP has the ability to intercept and neutralize free radicals and oxygen species. SAP is an active ingredient that protects against UV damage and improves the photoprotective properties of sunscreens. This means it prevents sunburn and supports the protective effect of sunscreens.
Clinical trials have shown SAP has better efficacy (i.e. is MORE effective) than 5% benzoyl peroxide, 1% clindamycin phosphate in treating acne.
Frankincense essential oil
Acne is a result of skin pores getting clogged, thereby leading to the build -up of bacteria within the pores. These bacteria begin feeding on the sebum that is now trapped in the clogged pores and they begin to multiply at a fast rate, leading to inflamed, irritated and swollen pores that manifest in the form of what we know as acne or pimples. Frankincense essential oil is a powerful antiseptic, anti-fungal, antimicrobial and antibacterial essential oil that actively fights acne-causing bacteria and it can help prevent acne from forming in the first place, as well as clear already existing acne.
Frankincense essential oil is very effective in controlling oily and greasy skin, without drying it up completely – and this is a very important step in fighting acne.
Acne-prone skin is often irritated, red and swollen because of the pores being inflamed with bacteria, pus and stale sebum. Inflamed skin can also be itchy, and bigger pimples often lead to bigger scars. Frankincense essential oil has great anti-inflammatory properties that cool down irritated skin, soothe inflamed acne and provide acne relief.
Frankincense essential oil has anti-scarring properties, which will fade old acne scars and prevent existing acne from leaving behind dark scars.
Hyaluronic acid serum is a superb hydrator. Hyaluronic acid serum can efficiently hold up to one thousand times its molecular weight in water, allowing it to deliver moisture to the dermis and epidermis of the skin. Upon contact, the hyaluronic acid serum penetrates the deep layers of the skin, binding cells to water and infusing every layer with restorative moisture.
Chronically large pores, or pores that continually get clogged, can lead to breakouts and adult acne. Hyaluronic acid serum tightens skin and minimizes pores so they shrink and become invisible over time. Smaller pores mean fewer clogs and breakouts.
Cucumber extract is a superfood for the skin. The juice is composed largely of proteins, lipids, Vitamin C, and a variety of minerals, and possesses moisturizing and emollient properties. It also has an astringent effect, and can soothe and relieve puffy skin. Cucumber extract has natural desquamation properties (meaning it aids in your skin’s natural shedding of its outer layer during cell turnover) keeping your skin looking fresh and young. It is also an astringent (meaning it tightens and firms your skin) to revitalize it and help reduce the appearance of the physical signs of ageing. Last but not least, the proteins and lipids it contains give your skin a lovely smooth feel.
Papaya has a potent skin lightening action owing to its exfoliating action and direct skin lightening effect of enzyme papain. Papaya reverses the skin ageing owing to its skin repairing, exfoliating and hydrating action. Few hypothesis supports it has direct anti-aging action as well; papain enzyme reduces wrinkles by modulating the collagen and elastic fibres in the dermis.
Consistent use of licorice extract over time has been known to fade dark spots and blemishes and lighten skin. It can also reverse darkening of scars, which are fibrous skin tissues that remain after an acne breakout. Licorice extract is also a good natural substitute for hydroquinone, which causes adverse reactions in some users. An ingredient called glabridin helps reduce uneven skin darkening, also known as hyper pigmentation — caused by exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Glabridin is an active ingredient containing five flavonoids that act to depigment, or lighten, skin while blocking an enzyme that causes damaged skin to darken.
