Skin Tightening and Firming
Kigelia extract has proven tightening and firming properties, reducing wrinkles and fine lines. Combined with vitamin A, B and C from baobab extract, essential amino acids, polysaccharides and glycoproteins from aloe ferox, this Uplifting Serum gives the skin a firm and plump appearance.
Fights Free Radicals
Vitamin C, flavonoids, polyphenols and the powerful Super-Oxide-Dismutase are potent anti-oxidants that act as freeradical scavengers, reducing damage caused by oxidation.
Evens Out Skin Tone and Reduces Sunspots
Active compounds in kigelia (quinones, irridoids, coumarines and flavonoids), combined with rooibos leaf extract, Aloe ferox and buchu evens out skin tone and reduce sunspots. Buchu has antiseptic properties that prevent bacterial growth, reducing blemishes and blotches. It also regulates the natural secretion of sebum.
Low molecular weight Hyaluronic acid prepares the skin for hydration, allowing active compounds from our hydrating products to penetrate deeper into the skin.
Protects Against UV Damage
UVB damage leads to modification of DNA structure and subsequent alteration of cell functioning and accelerated skin aging.
The UVA induced damage leads to loss of a fragment from the circular DNA of the mitochondria, which may result in a disruption of mitochondria functioning and energy synthesis. This is thought to be a major mechanism by which UVA radiation causes photo-aging of human skin. DNAGETM, a plant extract from the candle tree (Cassia Alata) protects two types of DNA from UV damage: it protects nuclear DNA against UVB and mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) against UVA. Additionally, DNAGETM supports the endogenous repair process of the cells.
This combination of protection and repair allows preventing UV induced skin alterations (clinical demonstration available from the manufacturer of DNAGETM).
Apply twice daily on face, neck and décolleté after cleansing and toning. Leave on until you feel a tightening sensation. Follow with Terres d'Afrique hydrating products.
