Paracress Oil comes from the Spilanthes Acmella flower and has long been used in South American traditional medicine for its numbing and anaesthetic effects. It allows wrinkles to relax, acting like a natural botox...gently...without paralysing the facial muscles. It is ideal for delicate, mature skin which can suffer from discomfort and marks quickly.
Squalane. Our Squalane comes from Sugarcane. It copies skin's natural oils because it is a great emollient. It is also a great antioxidant by fighting free radicals. It smooths, brightens and softens the skin helping to preserve its youth for as long as possible. At the same time it reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Bakuchiol Oil. We have included Bakuchiol Oil instead of Retinol because it does much the same job but it is very much kinder to the face and doesn't have any of the downsides of Retinol. Bakuchiol Oil comes from the Babchi plant (India) and has been called 'The Ultimate Source of Vitamin A'. A study in the British Journal of Dermatology said 'in 12 weeks users will witness major improvement in their skin. It is effective on fine lines and wrinkles and improves the overall skin tone. It also helps the skin with its production of collagen.'
Hyaluronic Acid. This is found naturally in our joints and eyes. But....we need more & more & more....for our skin. It helps our skin's elasticity; it moisturises and helps the skin stretch.
Plant Glycerin. Our Glycerin comes from Coconuts. It draws moisture from the air and hydrates and softens our skin. Ingredients like this are called humectants. It makes the skin supple and more velvety to the touch.
The 4 other active ingredients are all Peptides. These have been developed by some very clever people in Switzerland. A Peptides job is to take little instructions deep into the skin to tell it to (naturally) produce more collagen, proteins etc.
For example, when amino acids bond together to create long chains, the structure is called a protein. It is also called a polypeptide because it contains many Peptide bonds.
