Extract from the cranberry fruit, Vaccinium macrocarpon, is incredibly rich in phytochemicals with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial properties. Cranberries are considered highly valuable as an anti-aging food because they contain both large concentrations and a wide variety of different antioxidant compounds. These compounds are thought to contribute to the anti-carcinogenic properties of cranberry extract. In addition cranberries are widely used to protect urinary tract health by helping prevent bacterial infections.
Vanillyl Butyl Ether is a skin conditioning ingredient that may also cause a warming sensation in the skin by promoting blood circulation.
Micro massage therapy functions to both relax facial muscles and activate your skin cellsâ€™ natural healing properties to promote skin recovery.

Viscosity is the measure of a fluidâ€™s internal resistance to movement (i.e. how easily a liquid flows). A thin liquid such as water has a low viscosity, while a thick fluid such as honey has a high viscosity. In personal care products, the viscosity of a formula is both important for overall texture and feel, as well as for determining how ingredient are delivered into the skin.
Retinol is a form of vitamin A and a highly effective anti-aging ingredient. When applied topically, retinol is known to improve the health and appearance of aging skin by stimulating hyaluronic acid and collagen production. It is also beneficial as an antioxidant ingredient.
Ascorbyl Palmitate is a fat-soluable form of vitamin C, formed from the combination of ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and palmitic acid. In skin care compositions, it acts as an antioxidant ingredient, protecting the skin from oxidative stress and premature aging.
Tocopherol, also known as vitamin E, is a fat soluable vitamin that is highly effective as an anti-aging ingredient due to its super antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. In several studies tocopherol has been shown to protect skin from sun damage by reducing the formation of free radicals and preventing UV induced oxidative stress. Tocopherol also helps strengthen skin barrier function by acting as a skin conditioning agent and preventing transdermal water loss.
