The combination of Antioxidant Defence Crème together with the Vita-Peptide C-Quence Serums from the Environ Vitamin STEP-UP SYSTEM™ delivers a number of benefits due to the specific combination of peptides which are supported by the other Environ fundamental vitamins and antioxidants.
- Topical vitamin A has been scientifically proven to restore the intracellular vitamin A reserves required for a variety of anti-ageing processes.
- Retinyl Palmitate and Retinyl Propionate – both a gentle ester form of vitamin A which has anti-ageing properties.
- Vitamin C (Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate): A highly absorbable and very active oil-soluble form of vitamin C. Powerful antioxidant that assists in the prevention of UV-induced cell damage. It plays an important role in improving the appearance of uneven skin tone brought on by UVA irradiation. Has anti-ageing properties as it assists the skin to produce improved collagen.Vitamin E is supplied as both Tocopheryl Acetate and the most effective form of vitamin E, Tocopherol – the natural alcohol form of vitamin E. They help to quench free radicals, enhancing the effects of the skin’s natural sun protectors. They also assist in protecting collagen and making the skin look younger.
- Lycopene is a carotenoid with the primary source being tomatoes. It is a powerful antioxidant and scientific research shows that it is more than 100 times more effective than vitamin E and twice as powerful as Beta Carotene. It aids in protecting the skin against damage caused by the high energy blue light.
- Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 + Palmitoyl Oligopeptide (Matrixyl® 3000) is a synthetic combination of five natural amino acids, which when compared to Retinol, acts just as effectively but has the advantage of not inducing skin irritations or reactions.
- Palmitoyl Oligopeptide + Ceramide NG (Dermaxyl®) rehydrates the skin and assists in the improvement of sun-damaged cells. It helps “plump up” the skin thereby reducing the appearance of fine lines and giving the skin a smoother appearance. Dermaxyl® is a combination of six natural amino acids which are found in the body and therefore not likely to cause any allergic reactions.
- Pure Epigallocatechin Gallate, the active ingredient in Green Tea, is possibly the most powerful antioxidant available – it assists in reducing the appearance of sun-damaged skin.
- Rosemary Leaf extract is another powerful antioxidant.
- At the vanguard of functional preservation is UV absorber Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnate, to quench the effect of UV radiation during storage and application of the product, ensuring prolonged stability.
- A moisturising combination of Jojoba Esters and Hydroviton®, an advanced moisturising complex, complement the encompassing serums with enhanced moisturising properties improving overall skin feel.
- A variety of antioxidants together with BHT assist in maintaining the integrity of the Youth EssentiA active ingredients by preventing auto-oxidation during storage.
