They came overnight over 400 million years ago. Plants the great survivors and luckily for us, for without them there would be no life as we know it.
Plants have an unparalleled ability to defend and regenerate themselves against almost anything their environment has to throw at them. It’s these superpowers of resilience and rejuvenation that we want to give our skin.
Why are plants so effective?
Because of free radicals and antioxidants. You've heard of them but how exactly do they affect our body and skin? Put simply, the formation of free radicals is naturally controlled by beneficial compounds known as antioxidants. Antioxidants provide protection and inhibit oxidative stress (oxidative stress is your system's ability to detoxify and repair the resulting damage).
Oxidative stress is one of the major mechanisms for skin ageing and other skin conditions. This paired with dehydration and ultraviolet radiation are the most common factors in skin ageing.
The good news is we can dramatically slow this process down and with many skin conditions, even reverse some of the damage with plant intelligence.
Antioxidants are widely available and bio-active in plants. These concentrated phytonutrients and natural antimicrobial compounds work miracles for your skin to deeply nourish and support its long-term health and vitality.
Delivering these bio-active antioxidants directly to your skin is made possible by innovation in the extraction process. The intricate, complex, and full-spectrum natural actives are shelf-stable, living, and remain this way for 12 months which is a first for natural skincare.
Is it that surprising that nature, the ultimate intelligence source, offers your skin all it needs for its ultimate long-term health and beauty?
They've only been surviving and evolving for 400 million years. We've only been wondering around for maybe 300 thousand years.
The closer we can align ourselves with nature the healthier we and the planet will become.
At Terra Tonics, the best of science paired with plant intelligence enables us to do this for your skin.
