What else you need to know:
Encapsulated noni fruit extract revitalizes the skin, helping it perform at optimal level. Fortified with yeast polysaccharides, proven to aid with discoloration, Optimal Brightening Concentrate awakens the skin and illuminates the complexion. Multi-Action Vitamin C brightens and clarifies as it reduces the production of tyrosine, helping prevent the appearance of hyper-pigmentation. The appearance of dark spots fade from view as a bright, luminous, clear, and even appearance emerges.
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. 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.
