Feed Your Skin Its Vitamins
Vitamins are not only good for us, they are something our bodies simply cannot do without. We look for them in foods to maintain a healthy, balanced diet. But they can also feed us, or more specifically our skin, by way of nutrient-rich, plant-based skincare. Discover the key vitamins that deliver potent skin nutrition and unearth and help sustain a restored, radiant complexion.
Vitamins are micronutrients we rely on for proper functioning in the body, so it makes sense that adding them to our skincare regimen would help enhance the complexion. And whereas an oral vitamin is quickly distributed throughout the entire body, topical skincare is a targeted form of application, allowing your complexion to reap all of the incredible benefits. It is whole nutrition for your skin.
How Vitamins Bolster Healthy Skin
The efficacy of vitamins is found in the long list of varied, game-changing benefits they deliver. Vitamin A has been shown to help smooth, and even skin tone, antioxidant vitamin C helps to brighten and support healthy collagen levels, and vitamin B3, also known as niacinamide, is an all-around, radiance-inducing multitasker. And the list goes on and on. It is clear vitamins are non-negotiable for healthy, glowing skin, which is why the formulas for Active Renewal Cleanser, Active Treatment Essence and Active Botanical Serum are rich in this nutrient content, ensuring the complexion is as well-fed and supported as it can be.
Vital Vitamins In Our Minimalist Routine
In addition to having the most beneficial skin nutrition present in our formulas, we go a step further by focusing on the various nutrient synergies that exist within the skin, especially between vitamins and minerals. For example, vitamin C and the mineral zinc, when used together in the right percentages, have antimicrobial benefits that help to clear up breakouts. Our signature approach to formulation, known as our 21-day Phyto Radiance Infusion, harnessed the nutrients found in our carefully selected whole botanicals in the most optimal ratios, maximizing their efficacy and bioavailability to the skin. And since these nutrients can do so much for the overall health and vibrancy of skin, we developed unique delivery systems for our formulas—low molecular weight in the case of Active Botanical Serum and a readily absorbed, aqueous base for Active Treatment Essence. This allows the skin to easily take advantage of each vitamin-rich ingredient. Below, an A-through-K breakdown of the vital vitamins found in our formulas that hydrate, nourish and help defend skin.
Active Renewal Cleanser
VITAMINS A, C and E
Kakadu plum is an incredibly rich source of vitamin C that helps to add a glow to the skin for improved luminosity while the concentration of A, C and E in Mango Seed Butter helps promote smoother brighter skin.
Active Treatment Essence
Featuring a high antioxidant count, vitamin C is known for its brightening and collagen-supporting abilities. Essence contains a stabilized form of vitamin C in clinical percentages active enough to replace a stand-alone vitamin C serum.
B VITAMINS, INCLUDING B3
A full suite of B vitamins help to soothe and fortify the skin’s first line of defense. More widely known as niacinamide, vitamin B3 is especially brilliant at everything from reducing redness and the appearance of discoloration, to brightening and fighting breakouts.
