  • Microbiome - this product contains prebiotics to feed beneficial microbes at the expense of pathogens. A probiotic extract is added to shift microbial populations in your favour. It is also balanced at pH 4,5 to favour the growth of synergistic species.
  • Active Treatment - Marula oil contains an extremely stable anti-oxidant and has high levels of omega-6 essential fatty acids. Combined with the omega-3 oils from manketti and yangu, the lipid and barrier function of the skin is improved. Kigelia lightens sun spots, age spots and evens skin tone. LMW hyaluronic acid is included for effective moisturization and hydration. Antioxidants such as olive leaf extract improve skin elasticity and have photoprotection properties, and rooibos and grapeseed help to fight external aggressors and slow ageing.

"This is a wonderful anti-ageing cream for post-menopausal women. It doesn't contain harmful chemicals such as BHA, BHT, EDTA, methylcellosolve and retinyl palmitate. These toxic ingredients are commonly used in many anti-ageing products and have been shown to be potentially harmful to women, causing endocrine disruption, cancer and DNA mutations. We are pleased that women can now make more informed choices and have the options like this face cream to choose from for their anti-ageing needs".
