“Antioxidant City” in this product! Like vitamins from a variety of food, iKOU believes it is important to receive the benefits of antioxidants from a variety of different plants sources as a “food-combining” ethos to enjoy the full benefits of “Multi-Antioxidants”.
Raspberry Seed Oil - provides a potent antioxidant boost. It has the highest sun protection factor of any natural ingredient. It is equivalent to Titanium Dioxide at between 28-50SPF. We do not list this product as a sunscreen however as this requires TGA approval, this information is purely to list the natural sun protection benefits, and the main difference between iKOU Day Crème focus compared to Night Crème.
Kakadu Plum - Highest amount of Vitamin C of any fruit on the planet. iKOU Kakadu Plum is wild-harvested and is produced through ground-breaking DNA extraction without the traditional “macerate & percolate” methods used to date. This protects the precious Vitamin C content, as heat destroys vitamins. When tested, the majority of of Kakadu Plum extract available on the Australian market contains NO Vitamin C due to the methods of production!
Australian White Flannel Flower - Peak flavone glycosides, which are strong antioxidants that reduce the creation of free radicals and prevent ageing. Glycosides are used for two reasons in natural skincare, they help deliver other vital ingredients so they absorb into the skin & they hydrate the skin by binding onto water molecules. Provides potent antioxidant protection & supports healthy immune system function. Supports healthy collagen production, the main component of connective tissue. They work synergistically with Vitamin C, stabilising and increasing the antioxidant activity of the vitamin effects. Peak Phenolic acids which have anti-inflammatory action to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They behave like an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) by promoting new cell growth so the top layers of the skin surface naturally shed to reveal new skin with strong skin growth following behind. Potent antioxidants.
