18 antioxidants* defend your skin from the chemicals common to all skin problems: free radicals.
Over a dozen types of these highly unstable molecules are known to attack healthy cells and tissues, triggering inflammation molecules that literally rip skin apart – aggravating acne, aging, age spots, surface dryness and much more.
After almost sixty years of research, molecular biologists have identified three species (families) of free radicals and pro-oxidants that damage the skin.
Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) Most damaging of all radical families – ROS has the most members. Originates with the air we breathe, sunlight, stress, tobacco smoke, smog. Attacks all areas of cells, mutates DNA, destroys skin’s moisture barrier, destroys the dermis, begins and aggravates inflammation – the bottomline of aging and other skin problems.
Reactive Carbonyl Species (RCS) A direct result of drinking alcohol, eating sugar & “browned” foods, plus the interplay with ROS and RNS, RCS hardens sugars to form a “crème brulee” coating on dermal proteins, leading to sagging skin, deep wrinkles, dark spots and inflammation.
Reactive Nitrogen Species (RNS) Is involved in all forms of inflammation and worsens the damage of ROS & RCS. Produced by fumes from nitrogen-rich soil, smog, tobacco smoke – virtually all areas of our environment.
These three free radical species and their members are the bottomline of virtually every problem skin faces in its lifetime, including:
Sun damage. Age spots. Skin tightness. Crepiness. Acne flare-ups. Sensitive skin.
Loss of firmness. Tanning.
Surface dryness. Dehydration. Redness. Irritation. Inflammation.
Simply adding 1 pump of Antioxidant Defense Complex helps control or eliminate over a dozen types of pro-oxidants and free radicals in all three families. After just 7 days, 84% of consumers who tried Antioxidant Defense Complex said they saw and felt such a remarkable change in their skin they would use it indefinitely.
Although skin over the age of 30 is most affected by free radical damage, skin of any age, condition or ethnicity can benefit from the defense delivered by these 18 antioxidants. Therefore, this complex should be added to every AM/PM skin care routine.
When stored in a cool, darkened area, the stability of this formula is guaranteed for one year.
Self-preserving. Does not contain fragrance, essential oils, colorants or parabens.
* Contains more stable antioxidant at dose-dependant percentages than any antioxidant product reviewed among brands sold in department and drug stores, spas, medical offices, on television and the internet.
Home care | Unless otherwise directed, apply 1-2 pumps to face, neck and around eyes in the morning before moisturizer and sunscreen. May also be blended with other complexes, serums, moisturizers and masques.
Facial procedure | At the end of the treatment, apply 1-2 pumps of complex to skin prior to moisturizer. May also be blended with complexes, serums, masques and moisturizers during the treatment procedure. See specific Treatment Protocol for more information.
