The Research

Human skin possesses a perfectly balanced network of antioxidant vitamins, minerals, enzymes and proteins that work in unison to prevent the formation of harmful, ageing free radicals and glycation products resulting from daily environmental exposure.

These same organic molecules are also the building blocks of healthy, glowing skin, boosting the synthesis of skin-firming collagen and elastin, while helping to control pigmentation and refine surface texture.

As we age, and as a result of sun and environmental damage, our natural levels of skin antioxidants are diminished, making topical supplementation essential.

This powerhouse antioxidant protects against cellular damage caused by the sun, controls melanogenesis to even out irregularities in pigmentation, as well as stimulating fibroblast activity and connective tissue synthesis.

The Vitality Actives

Glutathione, Superoxide Dismutase + Ubiquinone (Coenzyme Q10) are anti-glycation antioxidants which deactivate the harmful effects of free radicals, preventing damage to skin cells induced by Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) generated during exposure to solar radiation and pollution. These powerful antioxidants minimise glycation processes by preventing collagen and elastin degradation caused by solar and environmental damage.
