Free Radical Scavengers
Description: Cell protecting antioxidants
Benefits: Reduce irritation, protect against photoageing
INCI Name: See data sheet
Biocell SOD (INCI name Superoxide Dismutase) is an enzymatic antioxidant well known for its role in neutralizing the superoxide free radical. Unlike
conventional antioxidants which are consumed as they scavenge destructive oxygen species, enzymes remain intact after the reaction. Accordingly, when using
enzymatic antioxidant protection long lasting antioxidant benefits may be obtained with lower levels of actives. Biocell SOD:Enhances protective effects of daily suncare products
Protects against damaging effects of the environment
Reduces UV induced Erythema
Protects Against Lipid Peroxidation - neutralises the Superoxide Radical
Red Grape Skin Extract (INCI name Vitis Vinifera Skin Extract) and White Grape Skin Extract (INCI name Vitis Vinifera Fruit Extract) from Givaudan
contain very high concentrations of antioxidants:
Free radical Scavengers
Reduce irritation and inflammation
Prevent skin cell damage
Triple Tea Extract (INCI name Aqua & Butylene Glycol & Camellia Sinensis Extract & Cyclopia Intermedia) combines the extracts of Green Tea, White Tea and HoneyBush Tea which all contain a family of compounds called polyphenols, packed with powerful antioxidants to protect your skin from harmful free radicals
White Tea is the least processed tea from the Camellia Sinensis plant. White Tea is harvested by hand and the fresh picked leaves are rapidly fired and dried resulting in a purer, more natural state. This freshness is what researchers report may cause White Tea to have a greater concentration of polyphenols than
Green Tea and, therefore, may have the strongest anti-cancer potential of all the teas.
Green Tea is the least processed next to White Tea. The polyphenols found in Green Tea have shown to have anti-oxidant benefits that are two times stronger than Vitamins C and E.
HoneyBush Tea is indigenous to South Africa and has a very low tannin content. It contains no caffeine and is also rich in minerals.
NAB Fennel Seed Extract (INCI name Foeniculum Vulgare) is an aqueous extract that contains standardised levels of peroxidase enzymes that convert harmful peroxides to innocuous substances such as water and oxygen to reduce oxidative skin damage such as U.V. induced erythema.
Superphyco D (INCI Aqua & Propylene Glycol & Algae Extract) is a stable marine and fast acting marine derived scavenger of damaging superoxide and hydroxy radicals. It is also available preservative free as Superphyco D BG/PF (INCI name Aqua & Butylene Glycol & Algae Extract).
Blueberries & Dark Chocolate Extracts INCI name Aqua & Vaccinium Angustifolium Fruit Extract & Theobroma Cacao Extract.
Superfruits are fruits that naturally contain high concentrations of essential vitamins, antioxidants, and other important nutrients. Both blueberry and chocolate are packed with powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants protect the body from wear and tear, while strengthening the immune system, and stabilizing cell-damage “free radicals” that form as we age. The more antioxidants present in your body, the less damage free radicals can cause.
Your antiaging companions, Blueberries & Dark Chocolate Extracts, are natural and loaded with goodness in one blend. This blend of superfruits and anti-oxidants will help to improve the overall wellness of your skin and hair for years to come.
