Red Alga is rich in lipids, and polysaccharides meaning that it can retain a lot of water for mega hydration. The polysaccharide is a carbohydrate and are believed to promote cell-turnover while reversing damage and smoothing out the signs of ageing.
This smooths and minimises wrinkles and improves the micro-structure of the skin. HELLO SMOOTH BUMP!
Celery Extract - Stretch marks appear when there is a rapid extension of the skin like pregnancy, rapid weight gain or rapid muscle growth. These conditions cause disorganisation of collagen fibres and the skin's repairing processes try to repair quickly, the tissue damages forming a kind of scar that is composed by disorganised collagen fibres.
Celery plant stem cells is able to improve collagen organisation both around and inside the stretch marks, improving skin regeneration and reducing the visibility of stretch marks.
Australian Davidson Plum -
Skin food from the Australian rainforest.
The dark purple fruit of the Davidson plum is one of a select group of native Australian species attracting worldwide attention for its incredible healing effect on skin. It's no accident the Davidson plum takes a starring role in our Belly Mask as it's a source of natural compounds that have a powerful regenerative and anti-aging effect on the skin. It contains the flavonoid anthocynain, which researchers have found:
- is a very strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant
- improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles promotes skin elasticity through enhanced collagen and elastin production
Davidson plum also contains phenolic acids which have an antioxidant effect on skin that's stronger than vitamin E. It's also an antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory agent
Finally, Davidson plum's flavonoids provide a huge dose of antioxidants. And when it comes to antioxidants, the more of these anti-aging babies you can get onto your skin, the better.
