ALA – Alpha–Lipoic Acid
ALA is a potent antioxidant and is used to regenerate glutathione. It offers particular benefits in skin health through preventing glycation (the free radical damage caused by sugar’s toxic effects) causing collagen ‘cross-linking’. When collagen cross-links, it becomes stiff and inflexible, leading to the wrinkling and stiffness of old skin. ALA is found naturally in the mitochondria portion of our cells, as part of an enzyme system that helps energy production. It is both fat- and water-soluble, meaning that it is easily absorbed through the lipid layers of your skin and works well as a free-radical fighter in the cell plasma membrane. Further, ALA is 400 times stronger than Vitamins E and C combined (both of which are renowned for their antioxidant properties). Whether in the skin or elsewhere in the body, aging cells need energy to keep them functioning properly. We know that a young cell (just like a young person) is characterized by its energy; by taking supplemental ALA and by applying ALA topically to the skin, we can deliver therapeutic amounts of this substance to help increase energy for proper cellular metabolism, which is desperately needed by cells for their cellular repair. As a topical, ALA provides multiple benefits to the skin. When incorporated into a lotion formulated for the delicate, thin-skinned eye area, you can experience a significant decrease in the appearance of under eye circles, loss of firmness and puffiness. ALA can also help reduce swelling and puffiness in the face. Its anti-inflammatory effects also help reduce visible redness and blotchiness, resulting in skin tone that appears more even and often making foundation unnecessary. ALA can help shrink the appearance of pores and impart a healthy, radiant-looking glow to the skin. ALA is excellent at this given its capacity to regulate production of nitric oxide, which controls blood flow to the skin. This is the secret to eliminating the appearance of dark circles and the reason ALA can help transform the complexion from dull, pasty, and pale to vibrant and glowing.

Much the same as a paint job reduces oxidation damage to vehicles, the high antioxidant value of lotions, potions, cleansers and serums containing white tea reduce the same damage to our skin. As an anti-aging product, this Extract protects your skin from more than just sun damage. I’m sure you’ve heard about collagen and elastin; in fact, you can’t read a skincare article without coming across these two proteins associated with youthful skin. You may be less familiar with the enzymes MMP, or matrix metalloproteinases. All skin contains MMP, which is healthy, but the amount increases with age. Unfortunately, increased levels of MMP gobble up the collagen and elastin that keeps our skin looking young. White tea Extract to the rescue! Applying this Extract to your skin helps inhibit the activity of MMP, so collagen and elastin perform their assigned task of maintaining your skin’s freshness while they stop functioning as appetizers for wrinkle-inducing, firmness-reducing enzymes.
