Let's talk about antioxidants:
As we get older our skin gradually loses its elasticity and thins out. This is part of the skin's natural aging process. However, variety of external factors can cause the skin to start aging at an accelerated rate. A big part of this "premature skin aging" is a result of free radical activity in the body. Free radicals are formed at the cellular level when skin is exposed to environmental stressors, such as ultraviolet light, pollution, tobacco smoke.
Antioxidants are naturally occurring substances that may provide protection against the effects of damaging free radicals on the cells in your body, including your skin.
Plants produce antioxidants to protect themselves from ultraviolet light from the sun and the reactive oxygen species generated during photosynthesis. It is these same antioxidants–vitamins, polyphenols, carotenoids, in plants that our body can use to protect us from the free radicals.
There are dozens of ingredients, naturally rich is antioxidants that we use in Herbs and Butters Skincare products, just to name a few:
