One of our favorite ways to glow is, of course, exfoliation. Whether physical or chemical, it sweeps away dead skin cells to reveal a healthy, radiant complexion. But did you know that there are other ways that our products promote radiance? It’s true, from Vitamin C Technology to Pigmentation Targeting Technology we have searched the globe to find maximal performance ingredients that can boost radiance without exfoliation. Read on to learn about the science behind some of these next generation glow getters.
KAKADU PLUM: VITAMIN C TECHNOLOGY FROM AUSTRALIA
This Australian superfruit is a naturally powerful antioxidant and is known to be the world’s highest source of fruit-based Vitamin C (100x more than orange!).
Not only does it enhance radiance and luminosity to brighten the overall look of skin, but it also helps fight the damaging effects of free radicals that can diminish glow and make you look older than you are.
FERMENTED SUGAR PEPTIDES: PIGMENTATION TARGETING TECHNOLOGY FROM USA
Fermented Sugar Peptides help to prevent the formation of dark spots while evening the skin tone. Known to be a super powerful skin brightener, this ingredient helps to prevent the formation of dark spots by reducing the amount of melanin produced by hyperactive melanocytes (a cell in the skin that produces and contains the pigment of melanin). This significantly reduces hyperpigmentation and works to promote overall a more even skin tone.
SEA FERN: PIGMENTATION TARGETING TECHNOLOGY FROM FRANCE
This Sea Fern is a natural brightener that uses regulating technology to target the visible signs of photoaging and minimize the appearance of dark spots. Sea fern acts directly on the genes that control the three key mechanisms involved in the pigmentation of the skin to stop dark spot formation before it even starts.
Fun fact: The powerfully fragrant compounds in sea fern have also been used in perfumery.
MICROALGAE CAROTENOIDS PHOTO PROTECTIVE TECHNOLOGY FROM ISRAEL
This microalgae acts as a brightening agent due to the alga’s naturally occurring carotenoids, a type of antioxidant known to absorb UVA/UVB light.
Because of this absorption, they help minimize the visible signs of sun exposure on skin tone while also inhibiting the formation of dark spots.
