Adding this 4oz/120ml bottle to 2 Litres/64oz. to a cream, adds a 6% active rate; a product comparable to mid-priced products on the market…at a lower finished cost per unit.
Soy Extract: soy isoflavones are most potent of the antioxidant phytoestrogens; supports elasticity and firmness, helping keep skin soft and flexible as is needed when rebuilding damaged collagen.
Wild Yams: act as a natural peptide that mimics dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) in the skin. As one of the building blocks of the body, improved DHEA levels have been correlated with improved sense of well being, reduced body fat and improve skin tone and moisture, although many associate it with menopause. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory that helps speed tissue regeneration resulting in normalization of damaged skin.
Guaraná is a creeping shrub native to the Amazon (and particularly the regions of Manaus and Parintins). In the lushness of the Brazilian Amazon where it originates, it often grows to 40ft high. Outside of its popularity in a drink, Guaraná’s therapeutic activity and use as a stimulant comes from xanthine alkaloids (caffeine, theophylline, theobromine) where caffeine alone has been shown to facilitate fat loss and reduce fatigue. Guaraná has been used in body care products for its tonifying and astringent properties, and in the treatment of cellulite for its lipolytic and vasodilation** actions. The use of this in the Seaplex blend is intended to reduce puffiness around the eyes and excess fat under the chin and neck areas.
** vasodilation: the opening up of the capillaries of the skin in response to warm temperatures or stimulation , thus increasing the flow of blood to the surface of the body.
Grape Extract: rich in flavonoids, phytochemicals that have antioxidant properties like vitamin C and vitamin E. Antioxidants are believed to prevent and control numerous ailments by safeguarding cells against the ravages of unstable oxygen molecules called free radicals.
Japanese Green Tea: Reported to fight damage from excessive sun and environmental damage. Primarily this ancient asian plant has ability to prevent free radicals from damaging cell structure further.
Wild Mushroom: A natural astringent shown to improve skin tightness and firmness as it diminishes the appearance of pores.
Cucumber: is a natural astringent and helps tighten pores. Contains potassium, silicon, and sulfur. Imparts a soothing feeling. Commonly used in skin care products as an anti-inflammatory, an excellent skin-soother and skin-conditioning ingredient.
