Vitamin E

Vitamin E

A natural way to support healthy skin is with vitamin E. This essential vitamin acts as an antioxidant and combats the harmful effects of free radicals. 1 The anti-inflammatory effects of vitamin E make it a valuable addition to any skin care product. When combined with vitamin C, vitamin E may prevent sunburn, helping improve the way in which a traditional sunscreen works. 2 Although vitamin E that is already present in your skin begins to decline due to overexposure to UV rays and aging, 3 studies suggest that use of topical vitamin E may increase the amount of vitamin E stored in the sebaceous glands. 4

Dragon Fruit Extract

Dragon Fruit Extract

Dragon fruit extract is packed with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that can be beneficial in treating skin. Loaded with vitamin B3, this superfruit may soothe irritated skin and provide relief from redness and itchiness. 5 Due to its ability to combat the damage caused by free radicals, dragon fruit extract may be able to slow down the skin's aging process. 6 When applied topically, this superfruit extract may reduce acne due to its rich vitamin C content. 7 As if all these benefits weren’t enough, dragon fruit contains 90% water and can act as a great moisturizer. 8

Cannabis Sativa Oil

Cannabis Sativa Oil

Cannabis Sativa Oil comes from the cannabis plant called Cannabis Sativa. This plant possesses medicinal properties that date back 3000 years. 9 There are many benefits that can be experienced from using cannabis sativa oil for your skin. This oil is rich in omega-6 fatty acid, which acts as an anti-inflammatory to soothe irritation and moisturize the skin. 10 In addition to soothing and moisturizing skin, cannabis sativa oil contains linoleic and oleic acid which have anti-aging properties and may help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 11 What makes this ingredient an even greater addition to your skin care products is that it is non-comedogenic and suitable for most skin types. 12

Soluble Collagen

Soluble Collagen

Collagen is the protein that keeps the skin firm and plump. It has high quantities of four amino acids, proline, lysine, hydroxylysine and hydroxyproline which may be able to slow down the aging process. 13 When collagen is lost through environmental stressors and age, the skin develops lines and wrinkles. 14 Soluble collagen is a smaller molecule form of collagen that is thought to be penetrated more readily by the skin. 15

Vitis Vinifera (Grape)
Fruit Cell Extract

Grape Fruit Cell Extract

Grape Fruit Cell Extract is a natural botanical substance that may protect and heal skin that has been exposed to UV rays. 16 This extract is made from embryonic stem cells that have been harvested from grapes. As skin ages, it slowly loses its ability to regenerate new cells which is why wrinkles form. 17 Grape cell extract contains phenolic compounds that are anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. These compounds may stabilize collagen, maintain elastin, and reduce swelling. 18 Grape fruit cell extract is an effective ingredient that may prevent or reverse signs of aging, especially those resulting from overexposure to the sun. 19

Organic Prunus Amygdalus
Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil

Sweet Almond Oil

Organic Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis, also known as Sweet Almond Oil, is an oil from the dried kernel of the almond tree. 20 Sweet almond oil contains vitamins such as vitamin A, B1, B2, B6, E and D. 21 Because of the vitamin E, this oil acts as an antioxidant that protects the skin from free radicals. 22 Sweet almond oil contains up to 30% of Linoleic Acid, an Omega 6 essential fatty acid. Studies have shown that because of Linoleic acid, sweet almond oil is able to reduce the loss of water from the outer layer of the skin. 23 This results in moisture retention, which is essential in maintaining healthy skin. 24

Zeolite

Zeolite

Zeolite is a unique and effective ingredient when it is added to skin care products. This mineral is made of silica and alumina tetrahedra. 25 There are different variations of this naturally occurring mineral, but each is unique to its own environment. 26 Zeolite is a master detoxifier and is able to draw out toxins and impurities from the skin. 27 Because your body doesn’t absorb zeolite, the impurities that are drawn out are removed when you wash your skin. 28

Organic Rosmarinus Officinalis
(Rosemary) Leaf Extract

Organic Rosmarinus Officinalis

Organic Rosmarinus Officinalis, better known as Rosemary extract, has always been known as a medicinal extract that has many health benefits. 29 In regards to rosemary leaf extract and how it benefits skin, the benefits of this plant extract are necessary and effective. Rosemary leaf extract is able to promote moisture retention and hydrate the skin.

Cotton thistle has shown to restore and maintain hydration in the skin and is gentle enough for sensitive and allergic skin types. 40
