Key ActivesActive Vitamin C Complex
10% Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate:
Liquid Vitamin C is one of the most effective and beneficial cosmetic antioxidants available today. The modified vitamin is released as pure C internally. It is an invaluable, stable antioxidant as it works to protect against UV induced cell damage and lipid peroxidation, two of the strongest contributors to the aging process.
Australian summers are amongst the hottest in the world and the more we protect and nourish our skin from the sun, the better it is for our future. One important action of Vitamin C is that it adds extra protection to the skin on a cellular level by increasing the cell survival rate in the epidermis when exposed to UV rays. Exposure to UV rays is the highest contributor to premature aging and potential skin disorders. Another unique quality of our cosmetic Vitamin C oil-soluble liquid is that it prevents lipid peroxidation. Lipid peroxidation results from free radical damage and also contributes to cell damage and premature aging. Our lipophilic Vitamin C liquid makes it a unique product that is readily absorbed into the skin providing added protection and nourishment.
- It has superior absorption qualities
- It has a lightening effect on the skin and may help reduce the appearance of pigmentation
- It protects against DNA cell damage induced by UV exposure
- It prevents lipid peroxidation and acts as an anti-oxidant
- As an antioxidant, it protects the skin against aging
- It promotes collagen synthesis and collagen protection

Potent anti-oxidant rich in Vitamin C with anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial & anti-tumour properties. An efficient vasodilator that accelerates wound healing by assisting recession of blood back into the body.
Hydrolysed Marine Collagen
Has a similar amino acid content to the collagen contained in the skin.
These are our skins fundamental building blocks for structural support (collagen, elastin) inhibiting wrinkle formation & maintaining youthful volume.
Phyto Actives | Anti-Oxidants | Anti-Inflammatories:
Alpha Bisabilol (Pure Chamomile Extract) D-Alpha Tocopherol (Pure Vitamin E) Apple Fruit Extract, Beta –Glucan, Green Tea Leaf Extract
With an abundance of flavonoids (phytonutrients or plant chemicals) that provide remedial benefits through cell signalling pathways and antioxidant effects, these botanical wound healing agents function as anti-oxidants and protect the skin cells from oxidation.
