Antioxidants protect our skin, prevent damage, repair it and help slow skin aging.

Antioxidants are also called “free radical scavengers”. Free radicals are waste substances that cells produce during food processing and when exposed to environmental factors such as UV rays, pollution, cigarette smoke and other chemicals. When free radicals are not properly neutralized, they cause cell damage. This condition is called oxidative stress. Because antioxidants help neutralize free radicals in our body, i.e. eliminate oxidative stress, they affect our good health.

They are also very important in protecting the skin. The skin is our largest organ and is exposed to many harmful factors. When used daily, antioxidants can help reduce and prevent visible signs of aging, reduce sun spots, and soothe skin inflammation. Some antioxidants increase moisture retention and therefore provide the skin with adequate moisture and help restore its radiance. Antioxidants help to eliminate the signs of aging also because oxidative stress breaks down collagen, reduces the skin’s natural renewal processes, triggers inflammation, which can eventually lead to fine lines, damage and aging of the skin. Antioxidants can thus prevent and eliminate these visible signs and thus provide the skin with a youthful appearance. Antioxidants can also prevent skin damage from the sun by reducing inflammation, preventing sunburn, offering strong protection against UV damage, and the like. “photoaging“. In addition to all this, antioxidants also help the skin to regenerate – by reducing inflammation, they give the skin time and space to react, resulting in the elimination of visible damage. Some antioxidants also stimulate collagen synthesis, which contributes to more youthful looking skin. Last but not least, antioxidants can help lighten skin tone. Free radicals and sun damage can also cause changes in melanin production, leading to dark spots and uneven skin tone. Some antioxidants also work by inhibiting the enzyme that stimulates melanin production (tyrosinase). In short, antioxidants protect our skin, prevent damage, repair it and help slow skin ageing. In our product amongst everything else we use Belinal. The antioxidant activity of Belinal® is one of the basic mechanisms that contributes to all other activities. Studies measuring the removal of the biologically important hydroxylene radical free radicals have shown that Belinal® has a higher antioxidant power than resveratrol, twice as much as vitamin E and as much as four times as much as green tea.

Belinal® is a first-class active ingredient in skin care with proven efficacy, as it was shown in a placebo-controlled clinical study:
37% reduction in wrinkle size
34% reduction in wrinkle volume
34% increase in collagen and elastin synthesis
43% increase in skin elasticity
41% reduction ih hyperpigmentation
26% increase skin moisture
20% reduction in transepidermal water loss
9% increase in UV damage prevention
