Safflower and aloe come together to support mature skin in this green tea & Q10-infused skin-softening moisturizer.
Grown right here in Canada, Safflower is a botanical that can be traced back to the time of the Egyptian pharaohs. It provides the skin with a natural defence against free radicals thanks to a potent dose of vitamin E.
Free radicals attack the skin at the cellular level causing damage that contributes to fine lines, wrinkles, and the appearance of aging skin. With its antioxidant properties, Safflower supports the skin by reducing skin inflammation, softening rough skin, calming skin irritations, and speeding up the repair process when faced with free radical damage.
Safflower also helps to prevent transdermal water loss (TEWL) so that all the hydrating aloe vera in this moisturizer stays in the skin and doesn’t get leeched out through a damaged lipid barrier. The essential fatty acids in Safflower keep the cooling aloe vera within the skin, keeping it calm, comfortable, and hydrated.
Safflower provides all these benefits while being a non-comedogenic (it doesn’t clog pores) quick-absorbing moisturizer. And thanks to a high level of linoleic acid within its makeup, Safflower’s superpower is balancing sebum (oil) while softening mature skin.
The first ingredient in this moisturizer, hydrating aloe vera, works hard to combat free radicals with its anti-inflammatory, skin-supporting properties. As an antioxidant, aloe vera helps slow the skin's aging appearance while improving collagen production and skin elasticity. Moisturizing, soothing, and softening, the large dose of aloe vera in this moisturizer will infuse your skin with vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants to keep it supported and nourished.
Infused with Q10, a potent antioxidant, this beneficial blend energizes cell activity for repairing damaged skin, evens skin tone, reduces sun damage, stimulates collagen and elastic production, and improves skin hydration.
We’ve also added green tea extract for a dose of vitamin B2 and vitamin E, which both play a critical role in maintaining collagen levels. The addition of green tea extract also delivers a must-have anti-aging antioxidant to the skin: EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate). This compound counteracts the effects of pollution and sun damage.
Finally, calming calendula extract, deeply nourishing argan oil, plumping hyaluronic acid, and balancing jojoba and bergamot have all been included for the most supportive moisturizer we’ve ever made for mature, sun-damaged skin.
How to Use: After cleansing and applying a hydrator, start by applying a nickel-sized amount of moisturizer to the whole face. A little goes a long way, so start light and add more as needed. Don’t forget to moisturize your neck as well. Allow the moisturizer to absorb before applying makeup (if applicable).
