ACECo is one of the most powerful skin protecting anti-oxidant combinations. It is one of the most concentrated Vitamin C products available. Astaxanthin is in fact a significantly stronger anti-oxidant than Vitamin C.
Not all Vitamin C is created the same; certain forms are not as stable when exposed to air, heat and light and the concentration and formulation are important in ensuring it has an effect. ACECo™ contains three types of highly stable and powerful Vitamin C (including the native Australian Kakadu plum, the richest known natural source of Vitamin C). Vitamin C increases synthesis of collagen to assist in repair of damaged skin and thus reducing fine lines. It protects the skin from damage by free radicals and reduces pigmentation through inhibition of melanin production. Concentrated vitamin E in ACECo works in synergy with Vitamin C. ACECo is also boosted with astaxanthin, another potent antioxidant and anti-ageing active. Astaxanthin increases skin moisture retention, elasticity and decreases wrinkles and has several times the potency of any Vitamin C in its ability to combat free radicals. The addition of Coenzyme Q10 completes this free radical fighting oil. Coenzyme Q10 is an antioxidant crucial for cellular energy, the levels of which diminish with age and from environmental stressors.
Facial oil is itself has the benefit of protecting the skin and reinforcing the skin barrier. This helps to reduce moisture loss from the skin surface, thus improving overall hydration. It gives an immediate plumping effect and a smoother appearance of the skin, creating the perfect primer for makeup application. It provides an excellent barrier against environmental pollutants. Specific facial oil combinations in moderation have been shown to reduce pore size and overall oil production, therefore are well tolerated even in oil or acne-prone skins.
