Lets combat Fine Lines & Wrinkles together!
Collagen and elastin form the support structure for skin - giving it firmness and shape.
Fine lines and wrinkles are caused when collagen and elastin fibres breakdown and the skin begins to lose its elasticity and strength.
This breakdown happens naturally as we age but can be accelerated by factors such as UV exposure (the primary cause of premature ageing), environment, and lifestyle - like smoking and poor diet.

Best ingredients for wrinkle and fine line treatment
There are many naturally derived ingredients effective for wrinkle treatment and fine line treatment. Here are some we recommend including in your anti-ageing skincare routine.
Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin also known as retinal, retinol, retinoic acid, and beta-carotene.
Revered for its anti-ageing benefits, Vitamin A can make healthy changes to a cell’s DNA, cause the dermis to thicken for firmer skin and brighten skin. The ultimate anti-wrinkle treatment!
Hyaluronic acid draws water into the cells and holds onto it for rapid hydration benefits - it can hold 1000x its weight in water. It deeply hydrates, keeping skin plump and minimises fine lines.
Alpha hydroxy acids
Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) include glycolic, citric and lactic acid are used to remove dead skin cells and are effective in minimising fine lines and wrinkles.
Vitamin C is an all star anti-ageing ingredient. Providing free-radical protection, it minimises the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, brightens and smooths for an even skin tone.
Omega Fatty Acids
Omega 3, omega 6, and omega 9 play a role in maintaining youthful, healthy-looking skin. They deliver positive changes in skin hydration, scaling, and roughness.
Peptides are a type of protein that help preserve and boost collagen levels, smooth fine lines, and minimise the appearance of pores.
Green tea extract
Packed with antioxidants, green tea extract can protect skin against the harmful effects of UV exposure which includes slowing the signs of premature ageing.
