When it comes to preventing premature aging, we're all about the antioxidants and whole plant ingredients are where you find them, just like in food.

Catechins are flavonoid polyphenols found in camillia green tea oil (Rosey Cheeks Cream & Serum) and grapeseed oil (Eyewaken Eye Cream). Catechins scavenge free radicals and slow extracellular matrix degradation induced by ultraviolet (UV) radiation and pollution, meaning they prevent damage to your skin that create the signs of aging.

Catechins also directly affect the skin by activating collagen synthesis and inhibit the production of matrix metalloproteinase enzymes. They are highly effective free-radical scavengers compared with many other standard anti-oxidants, such as vitamin C and vitamin E.
