What else you need to know:
Wild thyme extract is known for its antioxidant protection properties. To achieve luminous skin, it is vital to protect the skin against harsh free-radical damage. Free radicals are highly reactive chemicals produced by UVA and UVB rays, pollution, sun, and smoking that have the ability to damage the structure of all living cells, leading to premature aging. Topical antioxidants help the skin to protect itself against these harmful chemicals. Omega-3 ceramides work to improve skin’s natural barrier, fortifying the skin against moisture loss. Beech bud extract supports skin’s natural production of collagen while sophora root extract helps to inhibit the enzyme that breaks down elastin. Plankton extract is known for its cell metabolism benefits. To achieve luminous skin, it is also vital to boost cell energy, so skin cells are always performing at their optimal level.
