We Need To Tox

We’ve all heard that with age comes wisdom, but they forgot to mention that it also comes with wrinkles, dark spots, and doing your own taxes. Unless you are a bottle of wine reading this, I am sure you are constantly looking for a better way to prevent aging. There are thousands of products and risky procedures on the market today that claim to prevent and reverse the signs of aging in a snap. The problem is, a majority of these options are made up of harmful chemicals, contain a teeny tiny percentage of the “miracle” ingredient it claims moves mountains, costs an arm and a leg, or can only be purchased in the middle of the Sahara Desert.

When used regularly, Sotox Face Serum is proven to naturally prevent the signs of aging, reverse damage that has already been done, and will leave skin supple, tightened, and glowy immediately after use. The best part is- it costs just as much as a spin class! Here are the ingredients that will help put the you in younger.

Prunus Armeniaca Kernel Oil

In other words: Apricot Seed Oil

This ingredient is full of essential fatty acids that moisturize skin while helping retain its moisture.  It also contains natural antioxidants including Vitamins A and C that reduce free radical damage. When skin is exposed to sunlight, free radicals form and activate enzymes that break down collagen. The breakdown of collagen leads to sagging skin and the formation of lines and wrinkles.

Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride

In other words: A mixed triester of coconut oil and glycerine. (A science-y term for the fatty acid that is created when coconut oil and glycerol combine.)

This fatty acid moisturizes and replenishes skin and helps retain moisture.

Chondrus Crispus (carrageenan)

In other words: Irish Moss

Irish Moss is a form of Red Algae that is typically found along the Atlantic coast of Europe and North America. It is full of minerals and nutrients that are great for softening skin.

Citric acid

In other words: The acid that comes from fruits such as oranges, lemons and grapefruits.

Citric acid helps improve the texture of your skin and restricts melanin production. Melanin is responsible for blemishes, so by reducing its production you naturally reduce the occurrence of blemishes. It also clears dead skin cells which allows other beneficial  ingredients a path to penetrate further. Citric acid is rich in Vitamin C which is known for its anti-aging properties and increases the production of collagen. This is why it is great for diminishing skin discoloration and age spots.

Prunus Amygdalus Seed Extract

In other words: Sweet Almond Oil

Amygdalus Dulcis Oil is a conditioning agent that is extracted from a ripe seed found in the middle of a dried almond. It is the ingredient responsible for softening skin, reducing fine lines and also relieves skin from itching and irritation. It minimizes the signs of premature aging, reduces discoloration, and instantly creates glowing skin. Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil is not recommended for people who are allergic to nuts.

Algae Extract

In other words: Seaweed Extract

Some of the best skin care ingredients are found under the sea! Algae extract softens and detoxifies skin while replenishing essential vitamins and minerals. It is also rich in antioxidants which means it is a great ingredient for anti-aging and protecting against sun damage.

Pullulan

In other words: A moldy, yeast-like fungus.

Before you freak out, this ingredient is actually my favorite! The reason being, it works the quickest. Pullulan gives an instant lifting effect to your skin by creating a film that remains on the surface of the skin. The tightening effect of Pullulan is not permanent and washes away after use, but who doesn’t want an instant lift from their skin care? This ingredient is extracted from a fungus called Aureobasibium Pullulans that is edible and typically found in breath freshening strips.

 Glycerin

In other words: A natural byproduct of the soap making process.

Glycerin helps maintain a healthy look and feel in skin and defends against dryness.

Squalane

In other words: A lipid that is found in plant cells as well as human cells.

Squalane is an excellent ingredient to incorporate into an anti-aging skin care routine. It can be found in many vegetable oils, plants, and shark’s liver (not ours!) but is also found in human sebaceous secretions (the oil that is naturally produced by our pores.) Human Squalane levels peak in our early 20s and then rapidly decline, which is why it is important to incorporate this ingredient into your skin care routine at a young age. The ingredient quickly absorbs into the skin to do a number of helpful things including preventing UV damage, reducing the formation of age spots, and promoting new cell growth.

Tricholoma Matsutake Extract

In other words: Songyi Mushroom Extract

The Songyi mushroom is used to promote new cell growth and helps rejuvenate aging skin. It is a very mild ingredient that has proven to be a natural, safer alternative for skin-whitening. Compared to other harsh ingredients, Songyi mushroom extract is a more sensitive way to achieve a clearer and brighter skin tone.

Dipalmitoyl Hydroxyproline

In other words: A plant-based amino-acid.

This amazing ingredient feeds the collagen producing fibers in your skin, corrects uneven pigmentation, and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. It is known as the creme de la creme of skin care ingredients because it is completely natural, super valuable, great for anti-aging, and vegan!

Pinus Pinaster

In other words: Pine Bark Extract

This ingredient is proven to reduce damage caused by UV radiation which is a major contributor to aging. It is also clinically proven to be a very beneficial supplement when digested!

Put them all together and you have a natural solution to eliminate dark spots, lift sagging skin, and smooth fine wrinkles without breaking the bank! Want faster results? Mix Sotox with One Drop Wonder to speed up the process. Learn more about why here. It is never too late (or early) to start an anti-aging skin care routine!

  1. I absolutely LOVE both Sotox and One Drop Wonder! I have been using them since April and I really notice a difference. I have always taken good care of my skin and stayed out of the sun, but I’m also 49 so I’m fighting the natural aging process. Products like these are helping me to stay looking much younger than my age. Thank you LimeLight for creating products with such wonderful ingredients!
