About Protect & Nourish A.M.:

*This formula contains powerful antioxidant and photoprotective ingredients combined with exceptional nutritive factors.

Alpha lipoic acid is a dual-protection fat and water soluble antioxidant and also regenerates skin-shielding compounds including vitamin C, vitamin E, glutathione and CoQ10. It maintains a healthy cellular response in keratinocytes and protects collagen by maintaining healthy advanced glycation end product (AGE) activity.

Vitamin C is an integral collagen synthesis cofactor, promoting skin elasticity and resiliency. As an antioxidant and immune defense stimulator, it helps counter the effects of oxidative stress.

The photoprotective action of epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) and other green tea polyphenols includes preserving DNA integrity of dermal fibroblasts and epidermal keratinocytes. These polyphenols also moderate matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) activity, supporting the extracellular matrix (ECM) of the skin.

Alongside the well-known antioxidant activity of ellagic acid, anthocyanins and tannins found in pomegranate retain a healthy immune cascade in skin cells. This extract may also boost antioxidant enzymes.

In addition to super-charged proanthocyanidin antioxidant support, Pycnogenol® pine bark extract selectively binds to collagen and elastin, protecting these proteins from free radicals and enzymatic degradation. Studies also suggest its potential to minimize temporary redness and to lessen the appearance of age spots. By promoting healthy circulation and vascular integrity, this extract also optimizes nutrient and oxygen delivery for renewed looking skin.

Patent-pending coconut water solids and Hawaiian spirulina provide unique nutritional and phytochemical support. Coconut water is a reservoir of vitamins, minerals and amino acids, as well as RNA-phosphorous, shikimic acid and quinic acid, which support tissue health. It also contains plant messenger molecules involved in healthy cell growth and differentiation for additional skin restoration. Its natural enzymes support toxin elimination to promote skin clarity.

Similarly, pesticide and herbicide-free Hawaiian spirulina contains protein, essential amino acids, vitamins, and naturally chelated minerals. Phycocyanin and chlorophyll both contribute to healthy detoxification and cleansing. This strain of spirulina is also particularly rich in mixed carotenoids and provides antioxidant enzymes, including superoxide dismutase (SOD), for enhanced protection and epidermal immune function.

Essential fatty acids contained in spirulina, including gamma linolenic acid (GLA), support skin smoothness. Combined, these factors optimize the performance of skin functions and help promote invigorated and radiant skin.

This dynamic combination helps defend skin from free radical damage and photoaging in addition to providing vital nourishment factors, maximizing skin function while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
