Beauty that reflects on the exterior, in addition to protection from daily outer damage, is also a culmination of maintaining a healthy internal balance. Hence, getting the “beauty from within” concept depends heavily upon the integrity and functioning of various processes in the body like countering oxidative stress and strengthening antioxidant defenses ―thus, maintaining a balance or healthy control over these internal parameters may help in the management of skin health and vitality
A light-colored powder prepared from the fruits of Emblica officinalis, commonly known as amla, and standardized to contain 10% ß-glucogallin. Benefits of this component can largely be attributed to it’s potent antioxidant capabilities which is substantiated by its oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) value.
|ORAC hydro||ORAC lipo||ORAC total||HORAC||NORAC||SORAC||SOAC|
|(H-ORAC + L-ORAC)

Broad-spectrum antioxidant activity is based on the values of ORACTotal [hydrophilic (H-ORAC) and lipophilic (L-ORAC)- Peroxyl Radical Absorbance Capacity)], HORAC (Hydroxyl Radical Absorbance Capacity). NORAC (Peroxynitrite Radical Absorbance Capacity), SOAC (Singlet Oxygen Absorbance Capacity), and SOD (superoxide dismutase equivalent activity, corresponding to Superoxide Radical Absorbance Capacity).
Standardized to 90% ellagic acid, is a polyphenol and a powerful antioxidant derived from the fruit rind of Punica granatum.
Rosemary extract is obtained from the dried leaves of Rosmarinus officinalis and contains a minimum of 1.5% ursolic acid, 6% carnosic acid and 1% rosmarinic acid. The antioxidant activity of this extract primarily revolves around carnosic acid and its cascading potency, which involves its conversion into intermediates like rosmanol and galdosol both of which are free radical scavengers.
Silbinol® is obtained from dried heart wood of Pterocarpus marsupium and is standardized for minimum 90% pterostilbene, which is a structural analog of resveratrol. Pterostilbene displays more stability than reseveratrol in vivo and offers an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity. Several studies have shown that pterostilbene has anti-glycation potential as well, thus protecting the body against age-related damages
Standardized to contain 95% Oxyresveratrol and derived from the heart wood of Artocarpus lakoocha, Artonox® is a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent. Being a stilbene molecule, oxyresveratrol also possesses a dual mode of action owing to its antioxidant and possibly anti-glycation potential.
Soy isoflavones are plant-derived estrogens or “phytoestrogens” that share a structural similarity to the female hormone estradiol. This natural extract is standardized to contain soy isoflavone aglycones, genistein and daidzein. Clinically proven to be effective in delaying aging process by improving epithelial thickness and collagen fibers, as well as in increasing the population of blood vessels.
A colorless, hydrogenated product obtained from the rhizomes of Curcuma longa, it is standardized for minimum 95% Tetrahydrocurcuminoids (THCs), which includes Tetrahydrocurcumin(THC), Tetrahydrodemethoxycurcumin (THDMC) and Tetrahydrobisdemethoxycurcumin (THBDMC). The antioxidant ability of THCs is well established and so is their safety is published clinical studies. THCs also possess anti-glycation activity due to which they may have a significant role in promoting skin vitality
