Recommended for all skin types to exfoliate dead skin cells. Great for people who live in heavily congested metropolitan areas. Can be used on the most sensitive skins without any drying effects.
What is Oxidative Stress?
Oxidative Stress is damage caused to skin cells by “Free Radicals” and “Reactive Oxygen Species”. Free Radicals are simply bad molecular “splinters” or chards that slice the molecular building blocks of cells just like razor blades. These Free Radicals occur when UV radiation or certain chemicals penetrate the skin. Reactive Oxygen Species are just Free Radicals with oxygen at the center of the molecule. Solar radiation and chemicals also cause these reactive free radicals. All evidence, both experimental and clinical, indicates that Oxidative Stress is the major determinant in general skin pathology and in the pathogenesis of most skin diseases. This is because an exhaustive search for the cause of Oxidative Stress goes far beyond just chemical and solar damage. Metabolic disturbances, inflammatory reactions, microbial attack, and electromagnetic radiation all initiate Oxidative Stress.
What are Silicate Zeolites?
Zeolites are crystalline, hydrated alkali aluminum silicates. They are 100% safe because they are chemically non-reactive. Their power is in their molecular shape or geometry. They are “cages”. Whereas Silicate Zeolites capture the invading substances that cause Free Radicals and Reactive Oxygen Species, Antioxidants neutralize the molecular “Splinters” that are caused by the intruders (chemicals) and solar radiation.
