NATIVE AUSTRALIAN EXTRACTS
The small berries, nuts, roots, leaves and seeds of our indigenous flora pack a powerful punch with incredibly high levels of antioxidants, vitamins and other nutrients essential for the nourishment and regeneration of skin cells. Indigenous plants have learnt to adapt to the harsh Australian climatic conditions, and as a result, are potent receptacles and storehouses brimming with an abundance of bioactive constituents.
Our advanced extraction methods allow us to replicate these extracts as they have existed in nature for billions of years. It maintains the integrity and delicate balance between the cell environment and the liquid medium into which the plant extracts are dispersed, encapsulating their bioactive compounds without degrading or disrupting the plant biomatrix. A botanical extract in its purest form should mimicry the true blueprint of a plant so that the phytoactive compounds and derivatives are presented in a delivery system that is stable, potent and multifunctional.
Peptides are short chain amino acids that naturally occur in the skin and act as messengers. When topically applied, they can send a signal to regulate and produce new collagen, leading to the appearance of younger, more supple skin. Peptides can also act to strengthen other proteins in our skin such as keratin and elastin.
Some peptides have demonstrated a remarkable skin smoothing and nourishing effect, while others can improve the appearance of wrinkles, loss of firmness, and soften the look of expression lines. They play a key role in skin healing and counteract the visible signs of ageing and damage from pollutants and free radicals.
Individual peptides can communicate a different skincare task such as improving skin colour, hydration, firming skin or making new fibroblasts. When synergistically combined, and used in conjunction with other key actives, their age-defying benefits are amplified.
