How to get glowing skin has become a constant quest for beauty purveyors so we have revealed our 4 must-have glow-getters that deserve a place in your beauty repertoire if your skin is looking lack-lustre and dull.
Our four faves for that ethereal yet elusive glow are:
Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate: Vitamin C
Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate is the potent oil-soluble tetraester of ascorbic acid and isopalmitic acid, considered more effective than other forms of synthetic vitamin c derivatives due to it’s biocompatibility to human skin.
This clinically proven ingredient remains in skin cells once absorbed up to 80x longer than other forms of vitamin c, helping to brighten, provide potent antioxidant functionality, reduce UV-induced DNA damage, and activate collagen synthesis for that next level glow we all love.

Niacinamide: Vitamin B3
Niacinamide, a form of vitamin B3 is a well researched ingredient with multi-faceted skin restoring properties that’s perfect for all skin types. It works to reduce the appearance of enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, wrinkles, and dry skin.
Niacinamide supports collagen production and helps to boost natural production of ceramides to moisturise and smooth wrinkles, effectively lightens hyperpigmentation by slowing down the transfer of melanin to the epidermis, and plays well with other active ingredients. Best used daily, niacinamide can assist in skin appearing smoother, refined and translucent.

Kakadu Plum: Vitamin C
A native Australian fruit, Kakadu Plum is believed to be the most concentrated source of phyto vitamin c on earth, famed for it’s ability to brighten the complexion, reduce hyperpigmentation, clear blemishes and protect skin from harsh environmental damage.
Different to synthetic Vitamin C, it has superior antioxidant abilities with an Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) value 5x of blueberries, contains both water and oil soluble antioxidants that provide a more comprehensive protection but also when applied topically, helps to form proline, a collagen building amino acid. This combination makes Kakadu Plum a multi-tasking powerhouse, able to treat anything from irritation and blemishes to winter dullness.
