R-Lipoic Acid - the 1% concentration of R-Lipoic Acid contained In La Vie Celeste is highly stable and will not disintegrate due to exposure to air, temperature, or aging (remains stable for three years). R-Lipoic Acid provides anti-aging benefits for the skin.
Pomegranate - used since ancient times for medicinal purposes, this powerful antioxidant may help mediate ultraviolet light damage. Numerous studies have shown that pomegranate may help prevent sun damage or photo aging. Pomegranate provides support for aging and mature skin.
Green Tea Extract - contains powerful antioxidant properties and may protect against free radical damage. Regular use of topical green tea may help promote clearer, younger looking skin.
Spirulina - the earth's oldest living plant (over 3.6 billion years old). Spirulina provides a powerful boost of vitamins, minerals, and trace elements. Spirulina contains nutrients such as gamma linolenic acid, vitamin B12, linoleic and arachidonic acids, iron, protein (60 to 70%), essential amino acids, and chlorophyll (a natural cleanser). Spirulina is often referred to as nature's "green magic."
Olive Leaf Extract - an extremely potent antioxidant derived from the olive leaf. Olive leaf helps improve skin hydration and elasticity and may help promote clearer, younger looking skin.
Hyaluronic Acid - a powerful humectant found in abundance in the human body. Approximately 50% of HA is contained deep within the skin matrix (in the dermis). Through its ability to hold 1000 times its weight in water, HA keeps skin smooth looking and plump. As we age, we produce significantly less HA (starting in our 20's). Eventually, this results in loss of elasticity and firmness leading to lines and wrinkles. The hyaluronic acid we use is naturally derived and 100% vegan.
Rose Hydrosol - gently balances and restores the skin's pH and helps tighten pores; improves hydration and helps reduce the appearance of puffiness - an overall effective anti-wrinkle treatment. Hydrosols are gentle distillates of plant material that offer all of the benefits of the more concentrated, stronger essential oils which can be too irritating for some skin types. Provides a gentle, natural fragrance.
