Skintox Beauty Food
Our Skintox Beauty Food is a unique blend of rich superfoods and ancient Chinese herbs that aid in detoxifying, purifying and cleansing the liver of any built up toxins that are generally the root to many skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, inflammation, dehydration and psoriasis.
Phenolic compounds, Flavonoids, and Proanthocyanidins from plants are responsible for antioxidative activities of the herbal ingredients. Perfect for all skin types and conditions.
Flaxseed Meal; polyphenol antioxidants with the highest source of omega 3 fatty acids, increasing skin hydration and free radical protection. Keeping skin cells hydrated and supple, regulating oil flow and increasing the skins natural moisturising factor. Impeccable for dry and dehydrated skins.(Kajla, Sharma, and Sood, 2014)
Bee Pollen; Rich in over 12 essential vitamins, 8 amino acids, 30 unique minerals, enzymes that rejuvenates damaged skin, increasing cell turnover, stimulating collagen and elastin. Protection against free radical damage that causes premature ageing. Anti-Inflammatory to suppress inflamed and aggravated skins, anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, essential for fighting acne causing bacteria. (Ulbricht et al., 2009)
Schizandra; This interesting plant has many biological activities including anti-bacterial (equivocal results), sympathomimetic (stimulant), resistance stimulation, liver-protective, anti-toxic, anti- allergenic, antidepressant, glycogenesis stimulant, and antioxidant effects (Alok et al., 2014). Detoxifies the liver, providing oxygen to skin cells and preserving moisture within the skin. (Lee et al., 2015)
Amla Berry; Cleanses skin tissues and removes built up toxins, strengthening and supporting immunity of the skin against bacteria and infections. Regulating hormones and helping to control hormonal breakouts and acne (Binic et al., 2013) Amla elevates the mitochondrial activity of human skin fibroblasts and promotes production of procollagen. These results suggest that Amla extract has a number of potential mitigative, therapeutic, and cosmetic applications (Fujii et al., 2008)
Camu Camu; The most most powerful berry containing the highest amount of vitamin C (60% more than oranges) and beta-carotene (converted to vitamin A within the body) promoting collagen and elastin production, stimulating new growth cells, improving skin tone, texture and clarity. Strengthening blood vessels and organ tissues, helping to reduce the appearance of fine broken capillaries within the skin. (Langley et al., 2015)
Pomegranate; Protection of the outer-most layer of the skin (the epidermis) and the middle layer (the dermis), aiding in skin cell regeneration. Increasing circulation and healing of wound tissues, penetrating deeply into the skin with its small molecular size, deeply nourishing dry and dehydrated skins with the essential fatty acids and punicic acids. Three times more antioxidants than green tea, protecting against free radicals and pigmentation. (Zaid et al., 2007)
