Antioxidants: never leave home without them.
C-Shield is a featherweight all-in-one serum scientifically formulated to intensely brighten, hydrate, and smooth the look of skin without irritation. Our proprietary antioxidant complex serves as the formula’s core. A unique refining blend of actives softens texture and the appearance of pores. Finally, multifaceted layers of hydrating and barrier-supporting ingredients ensure resilience and vitality.
How do antioxidants work? They protect skin by tracking down free radicals: unstable molecules found everywhere in our environment. Antioxidants “scavenge” free radicals by neutralizing them before they can damage our skin. Vitamin C is one of the best at doing this job. Also, vitamin C is renowned for its ability to restore firmness by stimulating collagen synthesis. Vitamin C in two stable and bioavailable forms: sodium ascorbyl phosphate + ascorbyl glucoside deliver this potent ingredient without the sting or irritation associated with traditional l-ascorbic acid. Not only great for sensitive types, C-Shield shines on acne-prone skin as it gently combats visible breakouts.
When it comes to antioxidants, teamwork makes the dream work. A potent source of proanthocyanidins (OPCs), white pine bark boosts Vitamin C‘s effectiveness, works with your sunscreen to protect against UV damage, and improves skin elasticity. Green coffee seed has smoothing, firming, and regenerating qualities thanks to its high concentration of caffeine and polyphenol chlorogenic acid (CGA). Rounding out the antioxidant blend is superoxide dismutase (SOD), a talented enzyme that neutralizes damaging superoxide radicals while reducing visible redness and irritation in the skin. C + E + OPCs + CGA + SOD + caffeine = the ultimate antioxidant alliance.
Like we said, C-Shield is a total package treatment. Daily use refines the appearance of pores, texture, redness, and hyperpigmentation. Derived from chlorella using new extraction technologies, freshwater microalgae offers holistic prebiotic skin balance and restoration. Yeast oligopeptide gently boosts cell turnover to retexturize and reveal the bright, smooth complexion beneath. Elegant tremella polysaccharide adds intensive nutritive hydration with its stunningly soft, jelly-like texture. Hyaluronic acid joins forces with comforting allantoin and barrier-boosting niacinamide for sustained moisture balance and a dewy, plump finish. Shield skin daily to protect, clarify, and restore youthful vitality.
