Antioxidant Defense Complex

Skin Types: Skin of all ages, conditions, ethnicities, post procedure (laser, microdermabrasion), sunburn.

Antioxidant Defense Complex inhibits free radicals that lead to inflammation, dryness, aging, age spots, reduces redness and softens, smoothes, increases hydration and radiance.

Antioxidant Defense Complex has 18 antioxidants to defend your skin from the chemicals common in all skin problems. Over a dozen types of these highly unstable molecules are known to attack healthy cells and tissues triggering inflammation molecules that rip skin apart, aggravate acne, aging, age spots, surface dryness, wrinkles sun damage skin and much more.

Although skin over the age of 30 is most affected by free radical damage, skin of any age, condition or ethnicity can benefit from Antioxidant Defense Complex and the defense delivered by these 18 antioxidants. Simply adding 1 pump of Antioxidant Defense Complex helps control or eliminate over a dozen types of por-oxidants and free radical. After 7 days, 84% of consumers who used Antioxidant Defense Complex saw and felt a remarkable change in their skin.

The three free radical species and their members are the bottom-line of virtually every problem skin faces in its lifetime, including:

Wrinkles, Sun damage, Age spots, Skin tightness, Creepiness, Acne flare-ups, Sensitive skin, Loss of firmness, Tanning, Surface dryness, Dehydration, Redness, Irritation and Inflammation.

Action Ingredients:

  • 6 Super-fruits: Acai Berry, Gogi and Nonie fruits, Mangosteen, Pomegranate and Coffee Berry rank among the most powerful using the natural antioxidant grading system.
  • White and Green teas: neutralize free radicals from smog, tobacco smoke and forms of air pollution for fresh, hydrated, comfortable skin – no matter how bad the air gets.
  • Astaxanthin: The most potent antioxidant carotenoid found to date. An orange pigment from microalgae, it is 1000 times stronger than vitamin E, protects from inflammation, surface dryness, DNA damage by UV radiation and ozone, and interrupts the aging process aggravated by sugar, browned foods and alcohol.
  • Ergothioneine: A superior antioxidant to CoQ10 and Idebenone, this unique amino acid found in mushrooms is the key energizing antioxidant for your cells. Protects from ozone in smog and plane cab­ins, brightens skin and interrupts the aging process aggravated by sugar, browned foods and alcohol.
  • Garden Sprout extract: supports your skin’s natural detoxifying enzymes – enhancing cellular resistance to and the elimination of environmental toxins.
  • Pear, Hibiscus and Assafoetida: protect from sunlight-derived free radicals that damage DNA and are at the root of wrinkle formation, inflammation and skin sensitivity.
  • Sunflower and Safflower: oils rich in Omega-6 keep your skin soft, hydrated and calm by fighting off free radicals that destroy skin’s natural moisture barrier.
  • Thermus Thermophillus Ferment: extract repairs and protects against heat-activated free radicals that destroy DNA, cell membranes and skin-protecting lipids.
  • Lipochroman-6: a vitamin E-like molecule – targets nitrogen free radicals known to damage DNA, alter youthening proteins, increase inflammation and trigger cell death.
