The wrinkle-busting ingredients you need to know about
Aging is a gift we hope we all get to enjoy, the sign of a long life and a life well-lived. It’s a natural process and deserves to be embraced. However, our lifestyle, diet and environmental factors can all play a role in the process of premature aging which can sometimes leave us with a few extra wrinkles before our time.
What are wrinkles?
Wrinkles are folds or creases that appear on the face and body as the skin loses elasticity and the amount of collagen in the dermis, the middle layer of the skin.
Taking good care of your skin by establishing skincare rituals packed with hard-working actives to support collagen production, can help to keep wrinkles at bay and ensure you’re flaunting your best skin possible.
We’re here to bring you all the details of the best collagen-boosting ingredients that you might not have heard of, but you’ll definitely want to get to know!
Matrixyl-3000™ is a peptide, or chain of amino acids, which works to restore and maintain the youthful appearance of skin by signaling cells to produce more collagen, leading to smoother and plumper skin.
Clinical studies have shown that a twice daily application of creams containing 3% Matrixyl-3000™ reduced deep wrinkles by 45% in just 8 weeks!
Looking to harness the powers of this super-ingredient?

We all love a bit of sun, it’s good for the soul. However, the UV radiation from the sun can expose us to free radicals, which causes oxidative stress and leaves our skin dull, tired and wrinkled.

Top up your skincare rituals with this powerful ingredient and enjoy the sun guilt-free! You can find BV-OSC in our Metal Head Gold Brightening Mask, directly delivrering Vitamin C into cells 50 times more effectively than the industry standard Vitamin C so you can enjoy free radical protection, baby-smooth, plump skin and a sexy, golden glow!
