When you consider the role of a seed – to provide a safe environment for survival and enough nutrients to allow a plant to grow – it’s no wonder that, despite their size, they are packed full of goodness. At Real World we harness this goodness and use it to feed your skin. How does it help?……..
Antioxidants – destroy free radicals and prevent UV damage, delay ageing , restore damaged skin cells, cleanse the skin, help treat acne, protect from environmental stresses.
Essential Fatty Acids (the building blocks of the skins surface layers) – regulate the cell membrane, keep water and vital nutrients deep within skin cells providing long-lasting hydration without greasiness, reinforce and smoothe the skins surface, infuse softness and enhance elasticity to create a more even skin tone and a younger looking, healthier complexion, regardless of your age or skin type, aid in eczema treatment, balance oil production, fight wrinkles and premature aging, calm the signs of external stressors, including redness and sensitivity, strengthen the skin against signs of environmental damage.
Minerals (e.g. calcium, potassium, selenium, sodium, zinc) – help firm and tighten skin, balance oil production, act to keep the outer layer of the skin strong and intact, fight external pollutants and toxins.
Polyphenols/phytosterols – protect and nourish skin cells, control aging process, promote production of collagen and skin cell regeneration, strengthen the skins lipid barrier and improve skin elasticity, restore skin moisture balance.
Vitamins (A, B, C, D, E) – encourage regeneration of skin cells and collagen production, eliminate dark circles and lighten age spots by promoting blood circulation and fighting free radical damage, help reduce wrinkles and scars, fade fine lines, firm, tighten and detoxify skin.
Interesting fact: During seed dormancy, DNA damage can accumulate as the seeds age which can mean loss of seed viability and plant survival. Upon germination, some seeds undergo their own enzymatic DNA repair to fix any damage. Imagine being able to harness that potential!
