ANTIOXIDANTS FOR YOUR SKIN
OWAY BEAUTY has selected the best ingredients for creating nourishing and effective ingredients to offer your skin the perfect "DIET". Antioxidants are substances that inhibit the growth of free radicals (highly reactive, uncharged molecules with an unpaired electron). Free radicals form every time you breathe, eat, or are exposed to the sun. They are the by-product of oxygen metabolism created by the body to neutralize invaders such as bacteria and viruses; however, too many free radicals can trigger a chain reaction of destruction. This damaging process is known as oxidative stress and high levels have been linked to increased risk for virtually every chronic health condition.
Antioxidants are essentially free radical scavengers, stabilizing the destructive molecules by giving them an electron. While the body does produce some antioxidants internally, most of our antioxidant support is provided by substances that come from outside the body. Antioxidants can come from both natural and artificial sources, botanicals that are used in self-care products and the food we eat. Including antioxidant-rich products in your skincare routine can help manage the risk of free radical damage and support the look of skin in several different ways. The topical application of antioxidant-rich products, or consumption of foods high in antioxidants, may promote healthy tissue remodeling, reduce early signs of aging, and assist in maintaining a youthful appearance.
Oway's After-Sun Body Balm alleviates and repairs skin after sun exposure. Organic Avocado and Olive Oil moisturize and restore the skin, while the regenerating effects of Grape seed extract reduce the signs of aging. Biodynamic Green Anise is rich in antioxidants to prevent cellular DNA damage and eliminate free radicals, which have been linked to cancer. Signature Scent: A fresh, energizing bouquet of pure, steam-distilled essential oils including Sweet Orange, Lemon, Bergamot, and Fennel. Organic Olive Oil is rich in fatty acids that deeply moisturize and repair skin damaged by sun exposure and environmental aggressors such as pollution. Avocado Oil has a high antioxidant content with nourishing capacities that is great for replenishing dry, dehydrated skin. Grape Stone Oil regenerates skin cells by preventing wrinkle formation and signs of aging. Biodynamic Green Anise is an antioxidant-rich botanical that eliminates cancer-causing free radicals.
