RATIONALE Antioxidant Lipid Concentrate Letter

Antioxidant Lipid Concentrate

A powerhouse complex of oil-soluble Antioxidant Vitamins that nourishes the skin by boosting its own lipid production, restoring moisture levels and barrier function. Australian SolarProtective Botanicals defend against InfraRed Radiation and Essential Fatty Acids restore suppleness, firmness and resilience to dry, sensitive skin.

  • Oil-soluble Antioxidants nourish skin and alleviate dryness by preventing Trans-Epidermal Water Loss whilst increasing Natural Moisturising Factors within the epidermis

  • Soothes sensitivity and fortifies skin resilience

  • Stimulates collagen production and prevents glycation by defending against UV-induced free radical damage

  • Prevents hyperpigmentation by suppressing melanin production in basal layers of the skin

  • Targets acne scarring and brightens post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIHP)

  1. Add one to two drops to any RATIONALE day serum and smooth gently over face, neck, chest and back of hands each morning.

  2. Follow with your day hydrator. Best suited for dry, sensitive skin.

Active Ingredients


  • Naturally occurring carotenoid with highly potent antioxidant effects helps to manage oxidative stress by protecting skin from UV-induced free radical damage
  • Helps to prevent UVB-induced inflammation 
  • Suppresses hyperpigmentation from forming in the basal layer and transferring to surface layers of the skin

 Vitamin A (Retinyl Linoleate)

  • Stimulates collagen production to retain firmness and elasticity
  • Controls abnormal melanin production within the skin
  • Smooths skin texture and encourages radiance by increasing cell turnover to a healthy rate
  • Provides the skin with Linoleic Acid, an Essential Fatty Acid which helps to restore skin hydration and elasticity

 Vitamin C (Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate)

  • Hydro-lipophilic properties allow antioxidants to penetrate both water and oil soluble compartments of the skin
  • Brightens skin tone by controlling melanogenesis of skin cells to even out irregularities in pigmentation
  • Protects against cellular DNA damage

Vitamin E (Tocopherols + Tocotrienols)

  • Enhances the production of NMFs within the skin
  • Reduces erythema and oedema within the skin, encouraging natural healing processes and preventing against PIHP

Ubiquinone (Coenzyme Q10)

  • Powerful Antioxidant which works to deactivate the harmful effects of highly destructive free radicals, preventing damage to skin cells induced by Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) which are generated during UV exposure
  • Prevents glycation processes by protecting collagen and elastin degradation caused by solar damage
