Antioxidants occur naturally in vitamins – particularly A, C and E. They protect your skin against free radicals (molecules in the environment that damage your skin by clinging to your collagen, weakening elasticity). They speed up skin repair that causes cell damage in the body and reduce signs of aging.
Anti-inflammatory agents – can be found naturally in plant-based ingredients in the form of Polyphenols and omega-3s both proven to inhibit inflammation and work to soothe red, raw irritated skin. Inflammation is the result of small blood vessels in the inflamed area dilating to allow more blood to rush in. It is an act of defense that can backfire. This increased blood flow causes the tissue to become warmer, and external tissues take on a reddened color. Polyphenols are renowned for their tissue-shrinking abilities and omega-3s for its ability to convert and neutralise offending proinflammatory fatty acids.
Essential Fatty Acids – like omega-3s and omega-6s are the building blocks of healthy cell membranes. They also help produce the skin’s natural oil barrier, critical in keeping skin hydrated, plumper, and younger looking.

Pro Vitamin A – is beta-carotene, a carotenoid that produces dark pigments in plant foods. It helps skin grow and repair, smooths fine lines, fills in wrinkles, softens bumps and rough patches, brightens skin, fades scars and dark marks, and drastically reduces acne. Beta-carotene also acts as an antioxidant, protecting cells from free radical damage.
