Anti-Ageing Face Cream 75g

£23.90

We have made an all-natural moisturiser for the face which is full of powerful anti-oxidants and then stirred through 19% of Zinc as the natural sun protection active. We do not use UV filters in this cream. The first thing people notice is the colour. It is a light tan colour as it is full of genuine natural anti-oxidants, and these are not always white. We also use Red Raspberry Seed Oil for natural SPF in the formula which is bright red. Secondly it is quite thick due to the natural actives and Zinc. However we find it spreads really easily.
There are two ways to achieve sun protection. Firstly UV filter chemicals can be used which absorb UV radiation. We again urge people to do a little bit of their own research into UV Filters. The second way is to use a physical barrier using either Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide that reflects the radiation. We chose to use only Zinc Oxide only to reflect radiation.
Then for anti-ageing, we needed to help stop the free radical damage that contributes to visible signs of ageing.

Product Description

Why the fuss about anti-oxidants and free radicals to Prevent Ageing?

Free radicals have an electron missing and cause cell damage when they “steal” an electron from other atoms. Anti-oxidants pair up with these free radicals helping prevent cell damage.
Free radicals are created as an essential part of life when food is oxidized to create energy, and also from UV radiation or other stress such as smoking. They are highly charged oxygen that cause “oxidisation”. If you’ve seen a peeled apple turn brown, you’ve seen oxidation in action. Oxidization can also cause other health problems in the skin. Antioxidants help prevent oxidization by mopping up free radicals. As antioxidants block the effects of free radicals, they end up being oxidized themselves. But better the ingredients than your skin, right? This is why it’s important to constantly replenish your supply of antioxidants.
