Size: 60 x 0.28ml Smart Nutrient Beauty Capsules
Super-C Beauty Capsules contain a super-charged blend of smart nutrients and actives to boost skin health, protect, hydrate and nourish for youthfully radiant skin.
With 2% Super Vitamin C, Smart Vitamin E, Squalane & Tomato Lycopene.
We believe that in the case of Vitamin C, little and often is better. Vitamin C is notoriously unstable and can easily become pro-oxidant if used at high levels, causing cellular damage. OSKIA’s superior form of stable Vitamin C and Smart Vitamin E work synergistically to provide enhanced results at safer, lower levels.
Our beauty capsules perfectly preserve the Super-C serum oil and are ideal single-use, travel-friendly doses for a daily skin super-charge.
Capsules are vegan and biodegradable.
Encapsulated Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate – A superior, stable form of oil-soluble Vitamin C, deeply and quickly penetrates to a cellular level for bright, glowing, even-looking skin. 2%.
Tocotrienols (Smart Vitamin E) are a much more powerful anti-oxidant form of Vitamin E and supported by Tomato Lycopene, protect the skin against free-radicals, environmental stressors and oxidative damage while also soothing and calming. Unlike traditoinal Tocopherols, Tocotrienols are also highly anti-inflammatory.
Jojoba Seed & Sweet Almond Oils – Rich in Omegas and Phytosterols, nourish deeply.
Squalane – A plant derived, saturated fat, restores the lipid barrier, balances the skin’s natural oils and improves hydration and smoothness. Saturated oils have single bonds within their fatty acid chains, which makes them more stable and resistant to free-radical attack
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Twist off the capsule neck to release the Super-C serum oil. Apply daily to clean skin morning or night, or as desired. Use on its own or as part of your skincare routine.
TOCOTRIENOLS Q & A
Why is Vitamin C & E often combined?
The combination of Vitamin C & E has been used primarily as the anti-oxidant activity of Vitamin E helps preserve the integrity and stability of notoriously unstable Vitamin C derivatives. Vitamin C is a very unstable molecule and undergoes rapid oxidation (almost half of it gets degraded within 30 minutes). It can be stabilised to some degree by keeping it at low pH (below 3.5) and by adding other antioxidants to the formula (Vitamin E & Ferulic acid are the most popular). Because we use a stable form of Vitamin C, our anti-oxidants within our formulas are able to protect skin cells rather than stabilise Vitamin C.
Why is Tocotrienols so superior to Tocopherol?
OSKIA’s new Super C Beauty Capsules uses a superior form of Vitamin C that is stable (helped by the single dose capsules which protect the Vitamin C further), therefore leaving other anti-oxidants in the formula to work on protecting the skin itself rather than stabilising the Vitamin C. In addition to this, we have chosen to work with a much more powerful, superior and more unusual form of Vitamin E – Tocotrienols. (There are eight types of Vitamin E – four types of Tocotrienols and four types of Tocopherols). If you imagine traditional Tocopherols to have two arms to capture rogue free-radicals, Tocotrienols have three – making them 40-60% more powerful an anti-oxidant than traditional Vitamin E and the most important lipid-soluble chain-breaking antioxidant for cell membranes. Tocotrienols, unlike Tocopherols, are also highly anti-inflammatory so ideal for many skin conditions and as well as aiding healing. The polyunsaturated side chain of tocotrienols also allows tocotrienols to penetrate more efficiently into cell membranes compared to tocopherols providing superior nourishment and efficacy.
