Pick your own antioxidants

The search for sustainable health and beauty is on most people’s to-do lists but maybe the answer is closer than we think, antioxidants.

Berries are packed with minerals, vitamins and antioxidants and many are coming into season right now with British strawberries among the first to ripen.

But berry goodness can be off-set by the negatives of high carbohydrates, fruit sugar and sharp acidity. The high fibre of fruit is a problem for some people too.

Fruit solutions for wellbeing

Research has proved that ingredients within the wellbeing industry continue to demand for natural credentials and the use of red berries in skincare and supplements meets this expectation head on.

Supplements that harness the goodness of berries and other fruits without the high carb count can be a great way to access all the nutrients with minimum fuss.

Look out for supplements that feature grape seed extract, acai berry or blueberry as these pack a punch way above their pure food value. Our award-winning superfruit supplement Red Magic combines 15 different berries and other plant extracts It’s great for renewing skin, muscle and connective tissue cells and for supporting the immune system.

Is SkinAx2™ the vegan alternative to collagen?

Trending across the world, collagen peptides have been a movement all of their own within the beauty industry. With more and more skincare products using collagen as a starring ingredient, it’s easy to be led to believe this is the only thing to consider when re-evaluating our skincare routine. SkinAx2™ is the new kid on the block with plenty to offer, and… it’s vegan.

This ingredient is antioxidant rich from the blend of bioavailable polyphenols from Champagne grapes and French melon, plus zinc and vitamin C. Antioxidants fight against oxidation which damages cell and the genetic material inside them. Our bodies creates free radicals as it processes food, sunlight and toxins such as smoke, pollution and alcohol.

Promoting a youthful aesthetic, antioxidants are good for your health and can promote skin luminosity, smoother skin and retextured skin tone. Not only this, but reduce red/pink hues, rosacea and strengthen skin elasticity.

Although collagen has many benefits, veganism is something we strongly support and want to celebrate in our product such as SkinAx2™ feature in Skin Radiance.
