SUPPLEMENT INGREDIENTS + HOW THESE WORK*
Click topic to view

Zeaxanthin (Capsicum annuum)

  • Antioxidant – Carotenoid
  • Skin antioxidant (photo-protection)
  • When taken orally, can promote evening of skin tone (radiance, glow)
  • As an active constituent within skin, it helps support skin health in all conditions including UV exposure.  It promotes the evening of skin tone as it is readily absorbed in skin, resulting in healthy, radiant skin.

  • Balanced plant based source of omega 3, 6, 7 & 9 for anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial skin properties. Supports healthy mucus membranes (including skin cell membranes)
  • Useful in the management of dehydrated, aging and skin irritation

 

Gotu Kola Seed (Centella asiatica)

  • Seed – containing asiatic acid, madecassic acid, and asiaticoside
  • Asiaticoside, has been shown to induce type I collagen synthesis (primary form of collagen in skin tissue)

 

Maritime Pine Bark Extract (Pinus pinaster)

  • Contains a number of polyphenolic procyanidins, which serve as antioxidants, inhibit inflammation and selectively bind to collagen and elastin fibers to support healthy dermal structure (firmness, elasticity)

 

Red Clover Isoflavones (Trifolium pretense)

  • Plant source of isoflavones (phytoestrogens)
  • Supports hormone balance (estrogen) promoting collagen production)

 

Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol)

  • Photo-protective skin properties
  • Antioxidants – work synergistically within skin
  • Photo-protection – As part of the antioxidant network within skin, complementary effect of Vitamin E and Vitamin C in minimizing damaging effects of excessive or chronically sun exposed skin.)

 

Vitamin C(ascorbic acid USP)

  • Photo-protective skin properties
  • Antioxidants – work synergistically within skin
  • Photo-protection – As part of the antioxidant network within skin, complementary effect of Vitamin E and Vitamin C in minimizing damaging effects of excessive or chronically sun exposed skin.

 

Vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol)

  • Photo-protective skin properties
  • Antioxidants – work synergistically within skin
  • Photo-protection – As part of the antioxidant network within skin, complementary effect of Vitamin E and Vitamin C in minimizing damaging effects of excessive or chronically sun exposed skin.

  • Antioxidant – Carotenoid
  • Skin antioxidant (photo-protection)
  • When taken orally, can promote evening of skin tone (radiance, glow)
  • As an active constituent within skin, it helps support skin health in all conditions including UV exposure.  It promotes the evening of skin tone as it is readily absorbed in skin, resulting in healthy, radiant skin.

 

Fish Oil (40% EPA/30%DHA)

  • Factor 1(IGF-1.) Through controlling insulin like growth factor 1 (IGF-1,) Omega-3 fatty acids may be involved in controlling hyper keratinization of sebaceous follicles (skin roughness).
  • Fish oil Omega-3’s eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaenoic acids (EPA, DHA) are helpful in blocking the agents that cause skin redness and irritation

 

Borage Seed Oil (Borago officials)

  • Skin Hydration – As a source Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), balances skin lipids and barrier function.

 

Green Tea Polyphenols

  • Antioxidant properties – EGCG The epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) polyphenol from green tea has also been suggested to be helpful in skin break outs due to its well-documented antioxidant activity.

 

Tumeric Root (curcuma longa)

  • Antioxidant properties – turmeric has a long history of use in skin break outs.

 

Pomegranate Seed Oil (Punica granatum)

  • Antioxidant (punicalagin, ellagic acid) and antimicrobial properties

 

 

Broccoli (Brassica oleracea)

  • Antioxidant – Protects glutathione (primary antioxidant enzyme) depletion to offset oxidative stress within skin

 

Silymarin (silybum marianum)

  • Antioxidant – Protects glutathione (primary antioxidant enzyme) depletion to offset oxidative stress within skin

 

N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC)

  • Antioxidant – Protection of glutathione (primary antioxidant enzyme) depletion to offset oxidative stress within skin

 

Zinc (Zinc Oxide)

  • Skin antimicrobial and effects

 

Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol)

  • Supports skin immunity

 

PROBIOTICS/PREBIOTICS

  • Balances skin microflora
  • Anti- pathogenic, immune-modulatory properties at the skin level.
