White, red and green tea extracts combined with goji berry, pomegranate and grape seed extracts help to neutralize free radicals, protect skin from environmental toxins and combat the visible signs of premature aging.
- Peppermint Extract - Derived from the peppermint plant found throughout Europe, it produces a cooling sensation due to the compound menthol, which has antiseptic and anaesthetic properties. It also contains the polyphenol anti-oxidant, rosmarinic acid, which helps to prevent the activation of immune responder cells, reducing tissue swelling and fluid formation.
- Thyme Extract - Derived from the perennial evergreen shrub, it contains flavanoids, tannins and the phenolic compounds, thymol and carvacrol, which have antiseptic properties effective against bacteria and fungi, helping to cleanse and heal wounds.
- Fenugreek Extract - Derived from the seeds of the plant indigenous to the Mediterranean, it has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties due to the compounds of mucilage, alkaloids, tannins and diosgenin, a plant steroid, which help the body to protect inflamed tissue.
- Sage Extract - Derived from the evergreen shrub of the Mediterranean, it contains flavonoids, phenolic acids (rosmarinic and caffeic) and tannins, which have anti-oxidant and astringent properties to tighten skin tissue, remove excess oil and revive dull skin.
- Salicylic Acid - Derived from the bark of the willow tree, it is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that acts as a keratolytic, helping to encourage the shedding of cells in the stratum corneum layer to unclog pores, encourage new cell growth and allow for other skin care ingredients to penetrate more effectively.
- Lactic Acid - Derived from the fermentation of milk, it is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that acts as a keratolytic, helping to encourage the shedding of cells in the stratum corneum to encourage new cell growth. Also acts as a hygroscopic substance (humectant), having the ability to attract or absorb water molecules from the surrounding environment.
After cleansing, pour a generous amount of toner onto a piece of cotton and wipe face, neck and décolleté. Avoid irritated and sensitive areas. Allow toner to dry naturally. Follow with eye cream, serum, moisturizer and sunscreen.
