RESEARCH ON INGREDIENTS
Zeolite powder consists of a unique mineral called Zeolite Clinoptilolite which is of volcanic origin. The most interesting thing about zeolites is their open, cage-like, “framework” structure and the way it can trap other molecules inside it. When zeolite comes into contact with water, a chemical reaction absorbs the water and emits heat. Its warming properties offer a unique delivery system for active ingredients.
Cranberry seed powder or vaccinium macrocarpon is made from dried, ground seeds of cranberries. Since it is extremely rich in tocotrienols and polyphenols, cranberry seed powder is highly effective for anti-aging and is excellent at combating environmental aggressors. It is effective as an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiseptic. It is also high in minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, zinc, copper, manganese and selenium.
Grape Seed Oil or Vitis vinifera is obtained from the seeds of grapes after wine making, and is used to restructure damaged and stressed skin tissue. Grapeseed Oil contains a high proportion of linoleic acid, (a fatty acid essential for the health of the skin and cell membranes), used within the skin to form ceramides. It also contains malic acid, which is considered an AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) to help exfoliate the top layers of skin, promote moisture restoration and help the penetration of other ingredients.
