Nutritive Molecule Serum / Advanced Antioxidant Serum - 10% Vitamin C /
30 ml / 1 oz
An extremely rejuvenating serum that incorporates a superior complex of antioxidants and advanced actives to supplement and protect skin against the main types of free radicals: oxygen, carbon and nitrogen while improving skin’s texture, brightening and providing a strong protective barrier against pollution and cellular damage. Formulated for all skin types, this anti-aging serum infuses skin with 3 types of Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Ferulic Acid, Niacinamide, Resveratrol and Yeast Beta Glucan to help accelerate antioxidant activity.
Texture: Lightweight serum
• Fights signs of aging
• Visibly brightens dullness
• Targets fine lines, wrinkles / sun damage
• Promotes collagen production
• Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate: A stable oil-soluble form of vitamin C that penetrates deep into the skin to brighten and provide free radical protection*.
• Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate: A stable, water-soluble form of vitamin C that functions as an antioxidant and is effective for brightening an uneven skin tone while boosting collagen production with antimicrobial benefits*.
• Ascorbyl Palmitate: Stable and non-acidic form of vitamin C that is effective as an antioxidant. Ascorbyl palmitate is particularly effective at reducing environmental damage*.
• Oxidoreductase: Large group of enzymes that block oxygen in different forms from generating environmental damage*.
• Niacinamide: Vitamin B3 refines the look of pores, reduces the appearance of discoloration, improves skin resilience, and visibly brightens and fights dullness for a radiant, even-looking skin tone*.
• Yeast Beta-Glucan: A potent skin humectant with plumping capacity as hyaluronic acid and is high in antioxidants. It attracts water to the top layers of skin while decreasing the look of wrinkles, redness, and irritation. Some tests have shown beta-glucan is 20% more hydrating than hyaluronic acid at the same concentration*.
• Acetyl Hexapeptide 3: An amino-peptide developed specifically to reduce wrinkles and the signs of premature aging*.
• Resurrection Plant: Rich in polysaccharides, polyphenols and Trehalose sugar molecules address multiple signs of aging: dehydration, fine lines, uneven texture. By enhancing moisture retention, this intensive bio-extract nourishes the skin cells and contributes to skin regeneration*.
• Panthenol: Pro-Vitamin B5 acts as an emollient and lubricant. Panthenol modifies itself biochemically to produce the d-pantothenic acid, essential for a normal tissue function and cellular regeneration*.
• Malus Domestica: Swiss apple, a plant stem cell culture technology that has a positive effect on stem cell growth thus maintaining the growth and the proliferative activity of stem cells with an anti-wrinkle effect.
• Azelaic Acid: Inhibits tyrosinase, which is an enzyme that leads to pigmentation. It's effective on post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation from acne breakouts.
• Resveratrol: Fights free-radical damage with its antioxidant power, minimizing the signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.
• Silk amino acids: Liquid silk proteins contain essential antioxidants and amino acids that hydrate and nourish the skin, restoring its elasticity and resilience.
• Hyaluronic acid: A natural component of skin, hyaluronic acid molecules hold around 1,000 times their own weight in water, so they are extremely effective at hydrating the skin, plumping and smoothing the complexion to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
• Ethyl Ferulate: Ferulic acid is a skin soothing agent with powerful radical scavenging properties comparable to Vitamin C. Ethyl Ferulate is used for the treatment of premature skin aging and UV-radiation.
• Allantoin: Moisturizes, soothes itchiness, and heals injured skin. Allantoin can increase the water contents of cells, therefore, fighting against the damage of trans epidermal water loss (TEWL) in the dermis, which keeps the skin looking plump and youthful*.
• Caffeine: Stimulates skin and fights puffiness*.
