Why We Like It
Prevents blemishes. Improves barrier function and moisture retention. Nourishes aging skin. Restores suppleness. Imparts soft, dewy, smooth skin.
How It Works
Working beneath the surface at the cellular level, this multi- tasking anti-inflammatory not only fights bacteria, itÕs filled with anti-oxidants and bio-active marine ingredients that respect your skinÕs innate intelligence.
We vote this powerful polysaccharide ÒMost Likely to SucceedÓ in helping barrier function. It steps in where our own naturally occurring hyaluronic acid leaves off to assist aging cells in retaining water. It also provides anti-oxidant defense against free radical damage and reduces inflammation.
Black Willow Bark Extract:
Meet the original salicylic acid, straight from nature herself. Unlike its less expensive, synthetically derived counterpart, it exfoliates skin without irritation or sensitivity. (We love picturing early Egyptians bathing in it to wash away their aches and pains.)
Olive Leaf Extract:
This bacteria-busting extract also provides the anti-inflammatory properties that troubled, blemish-prone skin craves. Anti-oxidant powers give it the added benefit of preventing the free radical damage that causes wrinkles.
