80% of Ageing is caused by the sun

UV exposure leads to wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, rough, and dry skin because the sun causes proteins in our skin to deteriorate.

One solution is to avoid the sun altogether but what is a life lived without the sun? The sun releases serotonin  in our brains (the happiness hormone). It's good for our immune systems. It regulates melatonin, which regulates sleep, which regulates skin repair. There is no such thing as good skin without the sun. But we do need the right skincare.

The Transformative Power of New Zealand Botanicals

New Zealand botanicals experience some of the greatest UV exposure on the planet due to the hole in the ozone layer and other geological factors. To survive, they have had to develop a defensive mechanism: high levels of antioxidants. These antioxidants benefit our skin in the same way they benefit the plants; protecting against future damage and repairing damaged skin cells. The result? Bouncy, bright, luminous skin.
