Nephria Mineral Water
Nephria Mineral Water from the reservoir, 400m under the Jade Mine in South Korea is better for the skin because its high silica content strengthens the spongy cells in between collagen and elastin fibres, plumps the skin and slows the formation of wrinkles.
Glycerin is an effective skin softener. It is a humectant, which means it attracts water into the skin to ensure hydration.
Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid)
Hyaluronic Acid is one of the most exciting ingredients on the market today. Occurring naturally in human tissue, it forms an air permeable layer and penetrates into the dermis, thus boosting the elasticity and hydration of the skin. The protective breathable barrier on the skin locks in moisture which gives the skin a youthful appearance.
Hyaluronic Acid causes the skin to retain more water, adjusting its moisture absorption based on the relative humidity in the air. It adjusts to the skin's need for moisture depending on the relative humidity of seasons and climate of an area.
Natto Gum is a polypeptide used for anti-ageing benefits. It improves skin elasticity, increases the natural moisturising factor of the skin, exfoliates old keratin and clears stagnant melanin to help brighten the skin.
Allantoin is a moisturiser and keratolytic, which means it causes the keratin in the skin to soften. This property helps the skin to heal more quickly and to bind moisture more effectively, which is useful for dry skin and healing wounds, burns or scars. Primarily, Allantoin helps keep the skin soft, smooth, and healthy.
Papaya (Fruit Extract)
Most know that papaya as a tropical fruit, yet are unaware about the wonderful effects it can have on the skin - assisting with wound healing and healing to clear up skin problems.
Myrrh has antiseptic and therapeutic properties. Revered by ancient civilizations, the Egyptians used it in their religious and embalming ceremonies. Ancient Greek soldiers took a phial of Myrrh into battle, to stop bleeding wounds. It is one of the best ingredients to boost the skin and help regeneration and rejuvenation.
An emollient with antioxidant properties, Seaweed Extract restores moisture content to skin.
In skin care products, Amino Acids act primarily as water-binding agents and have antioxidant and wound healing abilities.
Green Tea Extract
Green Tea is rich in polyphenols (powerful antioxidants), which help to reduce the damage free radicals inflict to the DNA and protect skin from the harmful sun rays and its effects, including cancer. Green Tea has also been shown to reduce collagen breakdown.
The tannins in Green Tea interact with proteins and provide antioxidants. Green Tea is many times more powerful than vitamin E for neutralising free radicals. Since free radicals attack the skin cells, the antioxidant effect prevents free radical damage and skin tumours.
Green Tea is effectively absorbed via the skin and is a potent anti-inflammatory agent thereby reducing inflammation in the skin. It also helps to promote the health and quantity of collagen, thereby maintaining a firm and elastic skin.
