Produced by cold extraction from olive leaves (Folia Oleae) followed by a careful drying method. The olive, Olea europaea, from the family Oleaceae, is a long-lived, evergreen, sub-tropical tree and has been cultivated for at least 40 centuries for its edible fruit, its valuable oil and for its wood. Unripe olives are green, dark bluish when ripe and are the source of the oil. It is native to the eastern Mediterranean region, where its culture may have been begun as long ago as 3500 BC. In popular medicine, topical application of a leaves decoction is recommended to treat wounds and as an antiseptic.
100% natural and plant-derived with both ECOCERT approval and NATRUE certification. The unique Saccharide Isomerate (active) is formed by isomerisation of plant-derived D-glucose and similar to that of the carbohydrate complex found in human skin. It ensures instant, deep hydration and generates a moisture reservoir that lasts for 72 hours. As proven by extensive in-vivo and gene expression studies, it leads to more and better
hydrated epidermal cells and an improved skin barrier. It offers valuable consumer benefits such as a 50% improvement in skin smoothness and softness and more than a 50% reduction in flakiness and itchiness caused by dry skin after only two weeks of application. Increases stratum corneum hydration and water retention in the short term, leading consequently to mid to long term improved desquamation and epidermal barrier function of the skin. Tightness, itchiness and stinging caused by dry skin are all reduced for a more comfortable skin feeling. Improved softness and smoothness as well as reduced flakiness ultimately lead to a healthy skin appearance.
High levels of skin cell energy are key to maintaining a youthful and glowing complexion. These levels follow the circadian rhythm, a 24-hour cycle. The energy levels in the cells drop during the day and the result is a loss of glow in the afternoon which will be only recovered during the night. Dull looking skin is mainly caused by low cell energy. Skin that is energized throughout the cell’s circadian rhythm has a consistent glow and displays a fresh complexion. REVITALIN® PF, with its energy-providing actives produced by fermentation of baker’s yeast, ensures high energy levels and an all day long youthful, glowing complexion.
Hydrolyzed Tomato Skin-Lycopene
Derived from bio-liquefied tomato peels. Lycopene belongs to a group of over 600 vegetable fat-soluble compounds known as carotenoids which gives many fruits and vegetables their yellow, red and orange colours. Carotenoids are important free radical scavengers protecting the body from overexposure to harmful UV rays. Lycopene’s antioxidant capacity and its ability to reduce the damage caused by UV rays make it a valuable weapon in the battle against skin aging by blocking the UV rays.
