Anti-Aging Active Facial Serum
One of the first places we notice the signs of aging is on the skin. Every time the skin is exposed to the sun and the elements, it loses a little more of its vitality. These elements, such as the sun, chemicals and pollution, can create free radicals in the skin’s cells. A free radical is an atom with an unpaired electron that is very reactive–meaning that when it runs into a healthy cell, it can cause damage. When cells are hit by free radicals and damaged repeatedly, they begin to die, and the aging process begins. Most free radicals stem from oxygen, and to fight these free radicals you need what is called an antioxidant. This is where Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) steps in and benefits the skin.
Hyaluronic Acid also decreases as we age. Skin starts losing hyaluronic acid as early as age 18, but wrinkles and other skin damage from hyaluronic acid loss don’t generally show up until the late 30′s or early 40′s. Hyaluronic Acid is a natural compound found in skin that has many important functions, including holding in moisture, providing cushioning, aiding in tissue repair, holding together the skin structural components collagen and elastin, and helping create a protective barrier against microorganisms. It is also one of the most powerful humectants known–it provides smoothness and softness to the skin, excellent anti-wrinkle effects, soothes irritated skin and is an ideal ingredient after facial peelings.
Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide) is a potent cell-communicating ingredient that offers multiple benefits for aging skin. Topically applied niacinamide has been shown to increase ceramide and free fatty acid levels in skin, prevent skin from losing water content, and stimulate microcirculation in the dermis. It also has a growing reputation for being able to treat uneven skin tone and to mitigate acne and the red marks it leaves behind (known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation). It is an excellent ingredient for those struggling with wrinkles and breakouts.

*Black seed produces one of the healthiest oils on Earth. The prophet Muhammad was quoted as proclaiming “Black seed cures everything but death.” Black seed contains a myriad of antioxidants, anti inflammatory, anti-cancer, pain relieving, and antibacterial substances. Thymoquinone, an active component of black seed oil, is a central factor in the activation of our immune system. Virgin, unrefined, cold pressed black seed oil contains nearly one hundred beneficial ingredients, including essential amino acids, omega-3, Vitamin A (retinoids), and many more. The anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties make this oil an excellent remedy for a myriad of skin conditions and works to halt skin aging. Virgin black seed oil acts as a humectant, retaining water to promote a wrinkle free face. Black seed oil comes from Africa, the Middle East, and India. Studies have indicated the Indian variety is the most therapeutic of them all--this is the oil we use.
*Rosehip seed oil towers over all other oils as the queen of skin care oils. The seeds are replete with Vitamin A, marked by the dark orange/red hue. Rosehip oil greatly diminishes stretch marks and helps ot remove wrinkles from previously damaged skin. It combats inflammation and reduces the visibility of scars and blemishes. With regular use it will increase collagen levels, allowing for greater elasticity.
*Moringa seed oil has been held in high regard since antiquity. Pharaohs of Egypt included vials of Moringa oil in their tombs. Moringa seed oil is chock full of antioxidants, lending it to amazing stability and resisting oxidation. It is springing on the skin care scene for good reason. It is cold pressed from the seeds of the healthiest plant on Earth. The seeds of the Moringa plant are used to purify water (that is how healthy this plant is). The oil is light and easily glides on your face without leaving a heavy coat, vivifying your skin and imparting a silky complexion. The skin absorbs nearly 60% of what is applied, a leading indicator of health. Moringa oil infuses a myriad of nutrients including zinc and copper which are essential for glowing skin. It also acts as a humectant, retaining moisture in the skin.
*Beta Glucan is a 'protect and repair' molecule that increases natural self-protecting capabilities of the skin and also accelerates skin recovery. It is derived from mushrooms and is unlike beta glucan from oat, barley or other plants. Has been shown to stimulate collagen production and can reduce appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
