Scent is a tricky subject in skincare. We want a luxurious smell when we use a product, and it may make us feel like the product is working. You may purchase a product for its anti-aging properties, but if it’s loaded down with fragrance, you can make your skin situation worse rather than better. Fragrance is one of the ingredients with the highest risk of irritating your skin – or even causing an allergic reaction.

Green Tea

A Green Tea blend imparts a light, fresh scent to Sea Radiance Gentle Cleanser

Fragrance is considered a trade secret, so companies aren’t required to disclose what ingredients they use for scenting their products. It can be a guessing game when it comes to what you’re actually putting on your face!

While you may think your skincare is working, if fragrance irritates your skin below the surface, its ability to defend itself from environmental toxins, stay moisturized and minimize wrinkles will be compromised.

In our Gentle Cleanser, we don’t add any additional fragrance, but our Green Tea essential oil blend, added to soothe skin and deliver powerful antioxidants, also provides a light, fresh scent.

Don’t make skin work overtime to compensate for the fragrance in your products. After all, it’s called skincare for a reason! Reach for products that are fragrance free, or that have a gentle fragrance imparted by quality, gentle ingredients.

You can hardly pick up any skin care product without seeing the word “antioxidants.”

The word has become synonymous with “good for your skin.” But, don’t be daunted by the scientific-sounding title – you can understand how they work and use them as part of your skincare routine!

Think of an apple – if you slice it and leave it out, soon the exposed fruit will turn brown. This is oxidization, which leads to the deterioration of a living organism, whether it’s a piece of fruit, or your skin!

Antioxidants, as their name implies, prevent oxidization to keep skin looking fresh and youthful. This is why when you coat an apple slice with lemon juice it will not turn brown. The antioxidants in the lemon juice are doing their job.

The same is true of antioxidants on your skin, but they need to be the right ones. Dr. Jaliman has packed our Sea Radiance Gentle Cleanser with powerful antioxidants that will be most effective to help your skin combat aging on a daily basis.

 

Chamomile - AntioxidantsChamomilla recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract – this wild chamomile contains the antioxidant flavonoids.

Tocopherol Nicotinate – another name for Vitamin E, a potent antioxidant and longtime favorite in skincare.

Aloe Vera contains antioxidant vitamins A, C and E. Three amazing vitamins in one little plant! It is also anti-inflammatory, so it takes redness out of your skin.

Essential oils blend made from green tea – contains polyphenols, a powerful source of additional antioxidants.

 

Now that you know how antioxidants work, you can incorporate these powerful ingredients into your daily skincare routine to help keep your skin healthy and vibrant for years to come.
