Soft Finishing Moisturizer: Ellagic Acid and Aging Skin
Hale Cosmeceuticals brings you the very latest in skin care technology with our Soft Finishing Moisturizer. Formulated with ellagic acid, a powerful antioxidant, Soft Finishing Moisturizer is ideal for relieving the appearance of aging skin. Blemishes and blotchy skin are also improved.
An Antioxidant and More
Along with other antioxidants like vitamins C and E, ellagic acid helps to protect the skin from cellular damage caused by sun and chemical exposure, both of which lead to a proliferation of free radicals or Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS). These free radicals cause a breakdown in the production of collagen, one of the essential supporting proteins that give skin elasticity and flexibility. Without adequate collagen production, skin begins to sag and fine lines and wrinkles make an appearance.
Antioxidants such as ellagic acid inhibit this process, destroying free radicals and thus allowing collagen production to go on unimpeded. But ellagic acid is no ordinary antioxidant. It also has the ability to directly inhibit certain known carcinogens, such as nitrosamines and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, from binding to DNA. This further protects skin on a cellular level against the ravages of UV radiation.
Rich in Lipids to Help Fight Blotchy Skin
Soft Finishing Moisturizer also contains kukui nut oil, a rich natural source of lipids that soothe sun-damaged skin and help to heal psoriasis and other dry skin conditions. These lipids also help reduce blemishes and even out the tone of blotchy skin.
