Anti-oxidants and Free Radicals
Free Radicals - UV radiation is one of the major creators of free radicals. Free radicals can damage cell function and alter genetic material. Free radical damage causes wrinkles by activating the metalloproteinase’s that break down collagen. They cause cancer by changing the genetic material, RNA and DNA, of the cell. Anti-oxidants neutralize free radicals and are therefore important ingredients to include in skincare products.
Texture - I’ve opted for a very light gel like texture that feels substantive yet sinks in quickly, is non sticky and non greasy.
