Astaxanthin: Grown in and harvested from fresh water sources. Once it is turned into a liquid, it becomes THE MOST IMPORTANT nutrient known to the natural world. Astaxanthin is a very unique algae that turns red as it begins to synthesize. Its ORAC value…..Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity…is 550 times stronger than the purest forms of vitamin E. This is serious skin repair. Astaxanthin is a fat soluble phytochemical rich antioxidant that is able to permeate cells and tissues in a unique way. Water soluble antioxidants and nutrients cannot penetrate the same blood barriers that fat soluble nutrients can. Thus Astaxanthin is absorbed deeply and richly into the dermal matrix for immediate rejuvenation, cellular growth and healing. Skin damage and repair happens immediately when Astaxanthin is present. Dermal tone, texture, resiliency, clarity, and fullness are immediately enhanced and supported. Long term use of Astanxanthin results in visibly noticeable results.
Vitamin C: Thought to prevent collagen break down and help combat the signs of aging. As an antioxidant it is believed to remove the free radicals that cells produce. Free radicals have been associated with skin cancer and premature skin aging due to sun exposure. Some experts believe antioxidants are the most vital weapons in the fight against aging. Most of the damage of our skin is caused by a free-radical assault from smoke, pollution and UV rays. Free radicals then turn the oils of our skin rancid, which damages the collagen. Collagen is the protein fibers that serve as the building blocks of our skin. Antioxidants are used in skin care products to neutralize free radicals before they ravage the skin. Topical vitamin C may help lighten solar lentigos and melasma. Some studies have shown that topical vitamin C provides additional protection against the harmful effects of the sun. Said to prevent collagen breakdown, which would aid in combating aging. Duke University found that adding Vitamin C and E to sunscreens protects against UVB radiation.
Vitamin B3: Topical application of Niacinamide (B3) has been shown to increase Ceramide and free fatty acid levels in skin and to prevent skin from losing water content. It can decrease itching, inflammation, help acne affected skin, decrease oiliness, alleviate atopic dermatitis, decrease UV-induced skin cancers and help decrease facial pigmentation.
Hyaluronic Acid: One of the most exciting ingredients on the market today. Discovered by Karl Meyer in 1934 and has been successfully used in personal care and wound healing. Until the 1990’s the only method of producing hyaluronic acid was extracting it from rooster combs. Currently there are two forms of hyaluronic acid on the market; one from rooster combs and the other by fermentation in the lab. JES Organics only carries the vegan approved lab created version. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the extracellular matrix of human tissue. Topically applied hyaluronic acid 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. The cuticular layer of the skin normally contains 10-20% water, however as we age it can drop to below 10%. Hyaluronic acid comes to the rescue with its unique ability to hold more than 1000 ml of water per gram of hyaluronic acid, which is a key factor in allowing the skin to retain more water. Amazingly, hyaluronic acid adjusts its moisture absorption based on the relative humidity in the air. It is the ideal ingredient in skin care products as it adjusts to the skin’s need for a moisturizing effect depending on the relative humidity of seasons and climate of an area. Hyaluronic acid also protects the epidermis by scavenging reactive oxygen species generated by ultra violet light which would normally cause sunspots.
