Antioxidant Cocktail – Activist Skincare

Actives & Ingredients

Our Antioxidant Cocktail is a custom blend of synergistic antioxidants that provide protection from UV rays and environmental toxins. 

Pomegranate (Punica granatum) Seed Oil is rich in antioxidants and fatty acids including ellagic acid, punicic acid, palmitic acid, stearic acid, oleic acid and linoleic acid.

Vitamin E (included in this formulation as Tocotrienols and Alpha-D-Tocopherol) is a powerful antioxidant that can even absorb UV rays. It is also soothing and calming for inflamed and irritated skin.

Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a substance naturally found in our skin, but its concentration in our skin decreases over time, so older skin becomes lacking in this very important antioxidant. ALA is known as the "universal antioxidant" because it is so powerful that it makes other antioxidants more effective.

Lastly, we include four botanical extracts that are found in many common fruits and vegetables. Astaxanthin is a dark red antioxidant that is incredibly effective against free radicals — up to 1000 times more effective than Vitamin C. Lycopene, Lutein and Beta Carotene provide antioxidant and UV-blocking capabilities and fight free radicals.

These botanical extracts are are highly pigmented, so they add color to the Antioxidant Cocktail. The presence of these compounds in healthy fruits and vegetables is one of the reasons for the advice "eat your colors."
