One of my favorite skincare ingredients is Astaxanthin. Astaxanthin is very popular as a supplement for its super powerful antioxidants, but it has not been discovered by most cosmetic companies yet.
Let me explain skin aging theory 101. Our skin is under constant attack from free radicals produced by UV rays, pollution, stress, and poor nutrition. Free radicals cause wrinkles and age spots.
Astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant with potent anti-inflammatory effects. Research shows that Astaxanthin provides protection from UV damage, shrinks wrinkles, and makes age spots smaller.
In terms of its antioxidant properties, Astaxanthin is 6000 times stronger than Vitamin C and 800 times stronger than CoQ10.
So what is Astaxanthin anyway? Astaxanthin is a red pigment in certain sea creatures such as algae, salmon, shrimp, or crab. Their reddish pigmentation comes from Astaxanthin, which protects their skin from skin damage. A flamingo’s beautiful pink pigmentation comes from Astaxanthin too.
We are proud to be one of the only cosmetic companies that provides natural skincare products with Astaxanthin, one of the most powerful antioxidants available. We are so glad every time our customers send us positive messages about wrinkle or age spot reduction.
