The power of antioxidants in natural skincare: protection and care for radiant skin


In the world of skincare, antioxidants are true superstars. Found in natural ingredients such as plant oils and extracts, these powerful compounds offer numerous benefits to the skin and are a key ingredient in our natural cosmetic products. In this article, we will take a closer look at the benefits of antioxidants and how they help to protect and nourish the skin. We will also introduce you to a few antioxidants in more detail.


 


What are antioxidants and how do they work?

 

Antioxidants are molecules that neutralize free radicals that can occur in our bodies as a result of environmental pollution, UV radiation and stress. Free radicals can cause skin damage that can lead to premature ageing, wrinkles and other skin problems. Antioxidants fight these free radicals by stabilizing them, helping to keep the skin healthy and radiant. Below we take a closer look at some natural antioxidants and which products we use them in.

 


Astaxanthin: the super antioxidant from nature


Astaxanthin is one of the most powerful natural antioxidants known. It is extracted from microalgae and gives them their red color. In skincare products, astaxanthin acts as a powerful shield against UV radiation and environmental stress. It helps to firm the skin, reduce wrinkles and retain skin moisture. You'll find this miracle ingredient in our incredib'oil, a natural facial oil rich in antioxidants that protects the skin barrier, promotes elasticity and has a regenerating effect.



Coenzyme Q10: energy boost for the skin cells


Coenzyme Q10 is another antioxidant that occurs naturally in the skin. However, as we age, the production of coenzyme Q10 decreases, which can lead to a lack of energy in the skin cells. By using natural skincare products containing coenzyme Q10, the skin can be supplied with new energy. It supports cell renewal, improves skin structure and protects against premature skin ageing. Coenzyme Q10 is made from corn starch. We also use this natural antioxidant in incredib'oil, as it has synergistic effects together with astaxanthin and protects the skin from environmental influences.


 

Vitamin E: The skin protection vitamin

 

Vitamin E is a well-known antioxidant that not only protects the skin from free radicals, but also helps to bind moisture and strengthen the skin barrier. It has a soothing effect on the skin, reduces inflammation and promotes the healing of skin damage. This special antioxidant is extracted from soybeans. A must-have in gentle, effective natural cosmetics, which is why we use it in several products.





 

Bakuchiol: The plant-based alternative to retinol

 

Bakuchiol is a plant-based antioxidant extracted from the babchi plant. It has similar skin-renewing properties to retinol, but without the potential side effects such as irritation and sun sensitivity. Bakuchiol promotes collagen production, reduces fine lines and wrinkles and improves skin texture. This botanical superhero should of course not be missing from our miracle elixir incredib'oil.

 


Plant oils rich in antioxidants

 

A variety of vegetable oils are rich in antioxidants and are therefore ideal for skin care. Popular options include jojoba oil, argan oil, pomegranate seed oil and rosehip oil. These oils not only offer antioxidant benefits, but also moisturizing, anti-inflammatory and skin-regenerating properties, making them excellent for sensitive skin.

 

Overall, antioxidants play a crucial role in skincare by protecting the skin from damage, promoting natural regeneration and providing a radiant, healthy complexion. By using natural skincare products rich in antioxidants, we can provide our skin with the best possible care and protect it from external influences. Treat your skin to the power of nature and experience radiant beauty!

As you may have gathered from the article, we looooove antioxidants. Of course, we also love a natural glow. That's why we've designed our skincare products to be rich in antioxidants. True to our motto "take care of the skin you're in".
