Prevent & Correct Sun Damaged Skin
To prevent and correct sun damaged skin, there’s a serious serum that was made for those of us who previously worshipped the sun. It is by far the only formula to date that can protect and prevent.
A combination of synergistic antioxidants with L-ascorbic Acid (also known as pure vitamin C), plus Alpha Tocopherol (also known as vitamin E) and Ferulic Acid help to prevent and correct sun damaged skin.
This potent formula neutralizes free radicals induced by UVA/UVB, infrared radiation (IRA), and ozone pollution (O3), and other environmental damages which may lead to visible signs of accelerated skin aging. In addition to the antioxidant protective benefits, the serum actually improves signs of aging and photo damage including the appearance of lines and wrinkles, firmness, and an added benefit of brightening skin’s overall complexion. However if you have extremely sensitive skin or an allergy to ferulic acid, be advised to test on a small section of skin before using it on your entire face.
Additionally once the serum is absorbed into clean skin, it remains effective for a minimum of 72 hours or 3 days! It’s ideal for normal, dry, and sensitive skin types.
Ferulic Acid is found naturally in the seeds of fruits like apples and oranges, as well as some vegetables, nuts, and grains, and fights the free-radical damage that contributes to aging. Most commonly it is extracted from Rice Bran Oil. Ferulic acid plays a key role in the plants self preservation mechanism, re-enforcing it’s cellular wall strength and protecting it from microbial damage as well as sun damage. In vivo testing has shown Ferulic Acid to be highly effective as a topical anti-oxidant.
Ferulic Acid also is able to stabilize the oxidization effect normally occurring in regular Vitamin C serums. It is often referred to as anti-oxidant extender whereas the combination of Vitamin C with Ferulic Acid prevents oxidation which occurs when exposed to moisture or air. This combination allows products to ensure great benefits of both directly to the skin.
Ferulic Acid, combined at 0.8%-.5%, with 15% Vitamin C works to stabilize the Vitamin C, preventing the oxidation. Adding in Vitamin E with at least 1% has shown to double the photo protective capacity on the skin while providing additional moisturizing benefits, neutralizes free radicals and replenishing skin lipids. Studies have shown that the benefit of Vitamin E and Vitamin C increased the skin’s photo protective benefits by 4 times the normal level and then when the at least .5% Ferulic Acid is added, that number doubles the protective benefits to 8X times the normal level
Additional ingredients that help maximize these benefits may include Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic acid keeps collagen synthesis up, as well as retaining skin moisture, contributing to the anti-aging benefits to the skin.
When choosing the correct serum, do pay attention to the manufactured date as freshness is critical to the effectiveness and performance of any topical antioxidant product.
