SIGNATURE INGREDIENT #2
– Pomegranate oil –
Pomegranate and its extracts have antioxidant properties that show promise in animal and in vitro studies. Antioxidants such as the vitamin C found in pomegranates work by reducing cellular damage in your body. Other notable compounds include tannins, ellagitannins, and anthocyanins. When applied to the skin of mice, antioxidants helped decrease the incidence of age spots and wrinkles, though they didn’t prevent them entirely. Such effects are thought to be achieved via increased cell regeneration, which is your skin’s ability to get rid of old skin cells on the surface so it can rejuvenate new ones. Reduced free radical damage can also translate to decreased inflammation in the skin. As such, antioxidants may be able to reduce the symptoms of certain inflammatory skin conditions like acne and eczema. Pomegranate is thought to contain natural antimicrobials from vitamin C, which may help fight bacteria and fungus in your skin. Such benefits may help treat P. acnes bacteria, which may be a precursor to acne breakouts. The antioxidants in pomegranate are also thought to help provide natural protection against ultraviolet (UV) rays, according to some studies. However, such protection isn’t enough to skip out on daily sunscreen.

Coffea arabica extract diminishes UVB irritation induced photo-ageing and elevating type I pro-collagen production. The extract of the fruits of the coffee plant (Coffea arabica) has shown to exhibit antioxidant activity mediated by potent antioxidant polyphenols, especially Chlorogenic acid, condensed proanthocyanidins, Quinic acid, and Ferulic acid. This extract showed improving fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation, and overall appearance .

– BEES PRODUCTS –
One of the very few products which can compete with Sea Buckthorn in active ingredients quantity is products by bees. Composed primarily of the sugars fructose and glucose and consumed as food, honey also has applications when it comes to skincare.

Dark honeys have a stronger antioxidant effect than light honeys. Regular honey is also known as clarified honey or purified honey. Honey’s primary use in skincare products is related to its potent antioxidant properties; however, it’s role in helping wounds heal has been shown to have some benefits in comparison to traditional medicines and procedures. Honey forms a barrier on skin that can help soothe and protect.
SIGNATURE INGREDIENT #6
– Rosehip oil –
Loaded with vitamin C! Rosehip oil is rich in vitamin A. Vitamin A is made up of several nutritional compounds, including retinoids. Retinoids are known for their ability to reduce hyperpigmentation and other visible signs of aging with regular use. Natural exfoliation with rosehip oil can help reduce dullness and leave you with glowing, vibrant skin. That’s because rosehip oil is high in vitamins A and C. Vitamin A, or retinol, encourages skin cell turnover. Vitamin C also aids in cell regeneration, boosting overall radiance.
Rosehip has also been shown to inhibit the creation of MMP-1, an enzyme that breaks down collagen in the body. Research supports these benefits, too. In one 2015 study, researchers found that participants who took rosehip powder orally experienced a noticeable increase in skin elasticity.
Rosehip oil may be used to help reduce the negative effects of UV exposure. But it shouldn’t be used in place of sunscreen. Talk to your doctor or dermatologist about how you can safely use both in your skincare routine.
