Youth Glow Foundation 30ml Contains 10 active ingredients.
Beta-glucan: This yeast-derived polysaccharide demonstrates multiple actions. It is known as "biological response modifier" because of its ability to activate the immune system and improve natural defence mechanisms. Plays a role of a good antioxidant that helps protect skin from oxidative damage caused by free radicals. Beta-glucan boosts cellular respiration and promotes collagen synthesis and thus demonstrates strong tissue-repair and wound healing properties.
Uyaku: Natural molecules extracted from the root of the plant Lindera Strychnifolia (Japanese evergreen spicebush, Evergreen lindera), commonly used in traditional Japanese herbal medicine (Kampo). Uyaku extract helps synchronise circadian rhythms, which are easily "de-synchronised" by aging, stress and lack of light. Circadian rhythms are controlled by "clock genes", which promote different activities throughout the day: in the afternoon and evening these molecules stimulate protection against UV, cell division and DNA repair, whereas late at night and in the morning they encourage proliferation of progenitor cells and skin renewal. Uyaku is rich in alpha-glucans and flavonoids, molecules that demonstrate excellent antioxidant and soothing actions.
Sesame protein: This sesame-derived protein demonstrates an instant tightening effect with a noticeable reduction in the appearance of wrinkles. Effectively provides long-lasting moisture.
Hyaluronic acid: An important natural component of skin. Zelens uses a low-molecular weight hyaluronic acid with unique moisturising properties. Hyaluronic acid boosts skin moisture, promotes skin elasticity and fills in wrinkles to help reduce their appearance.
Shiso leaf (Perilla, Japanese mint): Rich in polyphenols (particularly Rosmarinic acid) and triterpenoids (particularly Ursolic acid), natural molecules that demonstrate antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-allergic bioactivities. Shiso leaf acts as a powerful antioxidant defending skin from free radical damage. It helps to prevent skin reactivity and soothes sensitive skin. Shiso leaf is well-known in Kampo medicine for its strong detox properties.
Vegetable polyglycerides: Completely vegetable molecules derived from sunflower oil with exceptional skin conditioning and moisturising properties. Help maintain and improve skin barrier function.
Pearl: Containing 16 essential amino-acids, proteins and polysaccharides, this hydrolised pearl helps maintain high moisture level while promoting skin smoothness and radiance.
Silanols: Organic silicium-based compounds. Help to reconstruct skin architecture by stimulating collagen production and enhancing cellular communication between keratinocytes and fibroblasts.
Silica: A trace mineral that helps strengthen skin connective tissues resulting in increased skin elasticity. Absorbs sweat and oil and prevents light reflection.
Diamond spheres: Micro-spheres with an entrapped photo-luminescent diamond core. When applied to the skin these spheres convert invisible UV light to blue light (photo-luminescence) and settle into fine lines and wrinkles illuminating a blue glow. The result is an enhanced "soft focus" effect with reduced appearance of wrinkles, shadows and discolourations.
