Super Boost Bakuchiol Serum (30g)
Deliver a powerful, super-boost of vitamins and nutrients to your skin with our NEW Super Boost Bakuchiol Serum. Blended with some of the most nutrient-rich plant oils available, our Super Boost Bakuchiol Serum will help to restore optimal skin health, resilience, and a youthful, radiant glow.
Our Super Boost Bakuchiol Serum features 1% Bakuchiol, a non-irritating, natural plant-based alternative to retinol (Vitamin A). Bakuchiol is a potent antioxidant, and it has been shown in recent studies to work in a similar way to retinol by increasing cellular turnover and stimulating collagen production. Results from a 2018 study, comparing bakuchiol to retinol, showed a significant reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation, as well as improved skin texture and tone, after a 12-week period of use.
Our Super Boost blend of plant oils includes:
Argan oil, rich in antioxidants, vitamin E, and omega 6, and well-known for its excellent moisturising, restorative, and anti-ageing benefits.
Squalane oil has a molecular structure close to the skin’s own, allowing it to penetrate deep into the pores where it targets skin care concerns at a cellular level. It is a highly effective, lightweight emollient locking moisture into the skin and providing superior hydration. Its natural antioxidant properties fight off skin-damaging free radicals that contribute to the signs of aging. Anti-inflammatory benefits help with skin conditions such as acne and eczema.
Hemp seed oil is extracted from the seeds of the Cannabis sativa plant. It is high in omega acids 3, 6, and 9, all of which help repair the skin barrier and form a seal over the skin to retain moisture. Hemp seed oil works as a humectant drawing moisture to the skin and providing deep hydration. It has anti-inflammatory and soothing properties making it beneficial in treating inflammatory skin conditions.
Kiwifruit Oil is a rich source of essential fatty acids with high concentrations of alpha- linoleic acid (ALA / Omega 3), which assists in providing ultra-moisturising and nourishing properties to treat dry, ageing, and damaged skin. Kiwi seed oil is high in Vitamins C and E which may help to improve skin elasticity and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C is also known to assist in the formation of collagen which provides improved elasticity and firmness to the skin.
Cacay Seed Oil has recently been touted as the new ‘miracle’ oil in skin care. It absorbs easily into the skin and is rich in vitamins A, E, and retinol. It is believed to contain three times more retinol than other popular anti-aging oils including rosehip, and 50 percent more vitamin E and linoeic acid than argan oil. Linoleic oil is an omega-6 fatty acid that makes up the protective outer membrane of healthy skin cells. The human body can’t make this fatty acid on its own, so we must obtain it from food or absorb it topically. Vitamin E is required by the skin for nourishment and healing, and its anti-oxidant effect protects against free radicals.
Jojoba oil is non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic, and is similar in composition to human sebum making it well-tolerated by most skin types. It is very nourishing and protective and penetrates the skin easily helping to reduce water loss through the skin by forming a protective film.
Coenzyme Q10 is a fat-soluble, vitamin-like, substance present in all human cells. It is responsible for cell protection and energy production in the body. Its powerful antioxidant properties help to protect the skin from UV damage, stimulate healthy collagen production, and protect against free radicals.
NZ Kānuka oil provides powerful antioxidant, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory benefits.
