Elderberry Flower bio-extract (Sambucus nigra bio-extract)
A delicate plant, called ‘people’s medicine chest’ by many of the nations that have used it for centuries. This plant has been used in traditional medicine all over the world, most notably in cosmetic preparations since ancient Egypt, as it is also anti-oxidant rich and has antibacterial properties.
It has the ability to slow down the natural skin ageing processes. It reduces puffiness around the eye area due to its anti-inflammatory properties.
Flavonoids strengthen blood vessels and are therefore an essential component of effective skincare. They assist in stabilising elastin and collagen fibres, the two proteins that form part of the skin’s supporting network.
Omega-9 Fatty Acid- Oleic Acid enhances the ability of active ingredients to penetrate deeply into the skin. At the same time, because it is high in saturated fatty acids, it leaves a soothing, non-greasy film on the skin that reduces trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL).
The highly potent Youth Capsule® is at the heart of every BIO-EXTRACTS ultra-strength Boost. This technology delivers key active plant molecules right to the areas of your skin where they are most needed. Youth Capsule® holds within it the power to transform the skin’s appearance, nourishing it with the most precious plant bio-extracts.
We formulated the Youth Capsule® as a transport system helping other ingredients penetrate deeper into your skin to hydrate and nourish from within.
For best results, mix 1 to 2 shots of the Boost with your chosen BIO-EXTRACTS Lamellar System Face Moisturiser. Alternatively, apply the serum directly to the areas of concern and massage gently into the skin.
