EDELWEISS MERISTEM CONCENTRATE
Origin: Plant and Biotech
One of nature’s amazing multi-taskers, Edelweiss is a herbaceous plant that grows on mountain ranges and has evolved to develop a multitude of natural protective defences in order to survive extreme climates.
Edelweiss Meristem Concentrate is one of the most powerful anti-oxidants, 3 times more powerful than Vitamin C or Resveratrol. In Opening Act it offers natural photo-protection from harmful UVB and UVA rays as well as protection from any irritation due to exfoliating. Edelweiss Meristem is known to activate skin proteins proven to promote cell longevity and can positively influence cell regeneration for a healthier, firmer smoother, more luminous skin.
PREBIOTIC TROPICAL PAPAYA FERMENT
Carica Papaya Linn
Origin: Plant and Lactobacillus
For centuries Papaya has long been recognised to treat, heal and repair the skin, thanks for its impressive antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and wound healing properties. It is currently one of the most researched fruits in health. Elixseri’s Prebiotic Tropical Papaya is incredibly rich in skin friendly phyto-nutrients such as flavonoids and phytoesterols, as well as vitamins and minerals such as potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, beta-carotene, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin C and vitamin A. It has considerable free-radical scavenging properties, with an anti-oxidant power 20 times greater than that of Vitamin E. In skin, Fermented Papaya extract has been proven to prepare skin to better receive and use other active ingredients, exfoliate and resurface, promote skin regeneration, normalise the skin's microbiome and clarify and brighten the complexion.
PREBIOTIC TROPICAL NONI FERMENT
Morinda Citrifolia Linn
Origin: Plant and Lactobacillus
The Morinda citrifolia (Noni) plant is indigenous to the southern hemisphere and for over 2000 years has been used by ancient healers as the primary ingredient in their medicinal potions. In the noni fruit, around 200 bioactive compounds have been scientifically identified. These actives –potent phyto-chemicals and anti-oxidants, including Anthraquinones, Glycosides, Lignans and Polysaccharides - bestow on the Noni Fruit considerable analgesic, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Noni also exhibits visible firming and anti-wrinkle properties in skin thanks to its proven action on skin’s collagen content. Clinical trials using Noni in cosmeceuticals have revealed fantastic skin benefits: It decongests and reduces inflammation, helps to normalize skin’s sebum production and rebuild the skin’s lipid barrier, and prepares the skin to receive and benefit from other natural ingredients. Our Prebiotic Tropical Noni Ferment acts to balance the skin microbiome, helps to reduce skin shine and improve skin clarity and luminosity.
Origin: Sugar and Biotech
Lactic acid is a natural acid derived from milk, fruit, sugar and other plants and is known for its skin softening abilities. Like it's fellow AHA's, lactic acid works by breaking down the 'glue' between skin cells, causing them to slough off and reveal the newer, shinier, healthier skin underneath, which is perfect for reducing lines, improving skin tone and texture, fading pigmentation and clarifying the skin.
With a reputation for being gentler and less irritating than glycolic acid, Lactic Acid also hydrates, increases natural barrier lipids in the outer layer of skin, and lightens and brightens skin for those with age spots or darkened areas. In Opening Act, Lactic Acid is used at a 3% concentration which is ideal for a powerful but gentle exfoliation, to energize cells and provide a dewy, healthy and clear complexion.
REGENINE is a fermented blend of nutrient-rich red grape, wheat bran, apple and lemon extract. The alpha-hydroxy acids found in Regenine (tartaric, citric and malic acids) are fantastic gentle exfoliators, well- suited for sensitive skins, as they are able to remove dead skin cells without any harsh side effects. The exfoliating action of Regenine in Opening Act, combined with the AHA’s and Fruit Enzymes found in Elixseri’s prebiotic Papaya and Noni Ferments, enhances the skin’s cellular metabolism, encouraging the turnover and renewal of new cells. Meanwhile, the ingredient’s protective and repairing phenols of Gallic acid, Catechins, Ferulic acid and Anthocyanins counteract any possible adverse reaction caused by the exfoliation and protects the skin from the anti-ageing effects of free-radical damage. The result is a smooth, fresh and tighter skin tone with a glowing and radiant complexion.
Alpha Hydroxy Acids
Origin: Plant (Fruit)
Elixseri’s Alpha Hydroxy Acids are natural by-products of our Prebiotic Papaya and Noni Ferments. They work to break down and dissolve dead cells and cellular debris by decomposing polysaccharides into smaller fragments, causing a softening and resurfacing effect to the skin.
In Opening Act, our Papaya and Noni AHAs work in synergy with Regenine, a gentle blend of the three AHA’s: tartaric, citric and malic acids and a modest but effective 3% dose of lactic acid, to provide a turbo boost to cellular renewal and help to resurface, polish, smooth and clarify the skin. At our ideal concentrations, the natural AHAs found in our Prebiotic Papaya and Noni will help to energize cells and provide a dewy, healthy and clear complexion.
