This is an ultra-rich, hydrating and nourishing night cream that is formulated with anti-oxidants and vitamins for the skin.
INGREDIENTS: Vitamin B3 5%, Manuka Oil, Green Tea Extract, Vitamin C, Native Rosella Extract, Vitamin E, Retinoin 0.01%.
Retinoin is the active form of Vitamin A. Vitamin A helps to reduce collagen loss and prevent wrinkles and fine lines. It also treats spots and pimples and is keratolytic, meaning it causes dead skin to slough off to reveal the new skin layer underneath. Vitamin B3 is vital for healthy skin. Vitamin C promotes collagen production and lightens the complexion.
Manuka Oil is high in anti-oxidants, helps decrease inflammation, helps with skin healing and is a natural anti-bacterial. Manuka Oil has been treasured for centuries by the Maori people, who are indigenous to New Zealand, where the low shrub originates. Triketones in Manuka Oil are key antagonists to gram-positive bacteria (more so than Tea Tree) and has many wonderful uses on the skin, including calming red and inflamed areas. Manuka Oil is also being researched for its anti-photoaging effects and antioxidant activity against skin inflammation induced by UV radiation.
Native Rosella extract or Rosella Sabdariffa has Anthocynin, Rutin and Quercetin which supports collagen production and is an anti-oxidant with very high free-radical scavenging activity.
Green Tea extract contains Polyphenols that protect plants from UV radiation and predators. They have epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) which is a potent anti-oxidant and free-radical scavenger. It is also 100x more effective than Vitamin C, and 25x more effective than vitamin E at protecting cells and their DNA from damage. Ellagic Acids in Tea Extract also lightens the complexion by inhibiting tyrosinase and melanin production thus preventing further appearance of dark spots.
Calendula Extract calms inflammation and Linum Alpinum is an Alpine flower with photo-protective properties.
Shea Butter increases hydration to the skin.
Apply at night to clean skin and massage in gently. Use one of our serums before the cream if you need extra hydration.
Vitamin A can cause some redness, skin peeling or sensitivity so it's best to apply a small amount and build up to a daily application.
As with all creams that contain Vitamin A, use a good sunscreen during the day.
