Bamboo Extract is loaded with a whopping 70% of silica! Whenever collagen is damaged in skin, and incidentally this is occurring all the time due to free radical damage, silica is required to take care of this by rebuilding and regenerating this connective tissue. Plus is gives a remarkable silky feeling.
Cucumber Peel Extract has natural anti-inflammatory and skin-tightening properties and is rich in Vitamins, minerals and enzymes essential for strong cell growth and repair. In addition, Cucumber Peel offers a natural source for a powerful antioxidant. It also acts as a skin toner and can be used in astringents to revitalize stressed and tired skin, leaving it refreshed and radiant.
Zinc is the active ingredient for sun blocking. Zinc facilitates programmed cell death, which is a natural part of your skin renewing itself. If it is delayed, skin cells stick together instead of dying and sloughing off like they should, which leads to clogged pores. Zinc kills acne causing bacteria, reduces inflammatory response to bacteria when it invades a blocked pore which can cause severe irritation and reduces keratin (a tough protein that binds skin cells together. Too much keratin prevents cells from separating and leads to blocked pores, as is the case in acne. By reducing keratin, zinc helps to keep skin pores open). Zinc is a DHT blocker, meaning it reduces the effect hormones have on the skin (excess sebum production). Zinc is also a powerful antioxidant.
