Meet your new besties: Age-defying Actives

All About Age-Defying Actives

If you’re looking forward to the grace, wisdom and understanding that comes with age, but not the wrinkles, dark spots and sagging skin, we have some friends you’ll want to meet! Each of these age-defying active ingredients works with your body’s natural processes to help you minimize the visible signs of aging and enjoy the experience of aging well. We think that’s a truly beautiful thing!

Vitamin C

This potent and effective antioxidant is one ingredient estheticians and dermatologists recommend to reduce signs of aging or sun damage. This powerful active helps boost your collagen production too, which can plump your skin and minimize fine lines.

We feature vitamin C in many of our formulations. Vita C Serum and Topical C are two of our bestselling favorites.


Peptides are your body’s way of asking for the collagen it needs to keep your skin firm, smooth and healthy looking. As we age, peptide production lessens and so does that much needed supply of collagen. You can help your body out by choosing skincare loaded with age-defying peptides. They’ll help keep your collagen supply going and your skin glowing!

Our PeptiDerm collection includes high concentrations of top quality peptides. Whether you pick and choose or create a routine using them together, we think you’ll be amazed by your results.

Hyaluronic Acid

Your body makes hyaluronic acid to help keep your skin and connective tissue hydrated and healthy. As time passes this production lessens and we can start to notice drier skin. Hyaluronic acid, whether produced by your body or found in your skincare, holds an astounding amount of water.  When applied to the skin, it helps cells stay well hydrated and healthy like they did when you were younger.

Our Hyaluronic Concentrate is a great source of Hyaluronic Acid. Use it before your favorite moisturizer or mix them together in the palm of your hand before applying.

Vitamin A

Retinol, a type of Vitamin A, offers a whole host of benefits with continued use. These include increased collagen levels, restored thickness to the skin and protection against environmental damage. For age-defense, it’s simply a must.

If you’re ready for retinol, consider working RejuvenA into your weekly skincare regimen. As it exfoliates it gives your skin ceramides, antioxidant vitamins, amino acids and hyaluronic acid. These clean beauty actives help reduce irritation, increase skin renewal and reveal your healthiest, most luminous skin.
