Soothes signs of redness & tingling // For Visibly Irritated, Sensitive Skin
Relieves discomfort on contact – signs of redness within minutes.
Great on sunburn, after waxing or tweezing, before and after AHA and other irritating treatments, laser, microdermabrasion or other non-ablative procedures. Helps protect barrier lipids when skin is exposed to free radicals in tobacco smoke, urban smog or UV. Controls excess radicals that contribute to daily inflammation – the bottom line of sensitive skin and aging.
Discovered in China more than 5000 years ago, teas from the camellia sinensis family have been the focus of much scientific research this decade. White Tea is the rarest, and contains the most potent antioxidant blend of all these teas, while Green Tea calms and protects against daily sensitizers. Red Tea, which originates from South Africa provides strong protection against environmental stressors.
Instant Calm Ultra Complex blends the antioxidant activity of White Tea with Sea Whip – the most potent soothing ingredient found in the ocean to date. Discovered at Scripps Oceanographic Institute in La Jolla, California, Sea Whip has been found to inhibit 90% of the inflammatory enzyme, phospholipase A2 (PLA2). This enzyme is the foundation of the skin’s inflammation response that leads to signs of redness and discomfort and, ultimately, the aging process itself.
Because sensitive skin needs longterm hydration, these ingredients are blended in a base of dermatologicallytested Algae Extract. This extract forms a silky, water-binding film over the skin, giving prolonged comfort to sensitive or irritated skin. Histological studies also suggest this unique algae base significantly improves the skin’s natural barrier function, increasing its moisture-holding ability and natural protection against irritating chemicals.
Always keep Instant Calm Ultra Complex within reach, available to come to the rescue whenever a complaint of tingling, redness or other signs of discomfort occur.
