Alpha Lipoic Acid

ALA

ALA is found naturally in the mitochondria portion of our cells, as part of an enzyme system that helps energy production. It’s both fat and water-soluble, meaning it’s easily absorbed through the lipid layers of your skin and works well as a free-radical fighter. By applying ALA topically to the skin, it can help increase cellular metabolism which is vital for skin cell repair. Menopause is often accompanied by skin that is thin and wrinkled. Estrogen gets depleted as aging accelerates. But studies show that antioxidants like ALAs help prevent this deficiency in older women. ALA helps regulate the production of nitric oxide, which controls blood flow to the skin. This is the secret to eliminating the appearance of dark circles and the reason ALA can help transform the complexion from dull, pasty, and pale to vibrant and glowing.

Amino Acids

Often referred to as the building blocks of proteins and peptides, they have a specific role in skin care. Naturally appearing in skin, as part of our natural moisturizing factors (NMFs), amino acids maintain skin’s hydration, texture, resilience, and an overall supple, healthy appearance. Within skin’s uppermost layers, they allow our skin to thrive and to stay hydrated. Because they work in harmony with aquaporins (the body’s water transport system), when applied via skin care products amino acids help maintain skin’s smoothness and hydration. Some amino acids are believed to help skin create more of its own antioxidants, such as glutathione. Topically applied amino acids help strengthen skin’s natural defense system, making it less likely to show signs of aging from environmental damage.

Unlike ingredients made from petroleum, beeswax doesn’t “suffocate” the skin, and won’t clog pores. It acts as a natural emollient and humectant, attracting moisture to the skin and sealing it in keeping your skin hydrated over time. Packed with Vitamin A, it can be effective in hydrating dry skin and in cell reconstruction and can rejuvenate the look of your skin!
