ARK Skincare products are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and lipids, many of which are sourced from nutrient rich foods known as superfoods.
Superfoods have a very high density of nutrients which makes them particularly good at ensuring our health and wellbeing. But which super foods are used in skincare, and how are they beneficial to our skin?
The Age Protect range (for teens and 20s) is high in lipids sourced from Avocado and Peach, antioxidants sourced from White Tea, and Vitamin E. Avocado and Peach provide softening benefits with a light non greasy feel suited to younger skin. White Tea has anti microbial and anti inflammatory properties to clam as well as balancing sebum levels.
The Age Defend range (for those in their 30s and 40s) is high in levels of Omegas from Kiwi and Passion fruit lipids; rich in antioxidants from Blue Lotus; and high in a gentle form of Vitamin A, as well as containing Prickly Pear. Kiwi lipids contain high levels of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, the most important building blocks of skin cells.They decrease inflammation, reduce redness, and prevent dehydration. Prickly Pear derived from the Nopal plant, is a potent ingredient which brightens skin, and increases collagen production.
The Age Defy range for those aged 50 onwards contains lipids from Blackcurrant and Starflower; antioxidants from Gojiberry; Red Algae, and Vitamin C. Blackcurrant and Starflower contain intensive levels of Omegas 3 and 6. Gojiberry is one of the richest antioxidant herbs and is moisturising, vitalising and soothing. Red Algae contains Zylose and Galactose which give the skin a luminous glow and reduce pigmentation or brown spots.
