Although there's no magic bullet to reverse the effects of aging, that doesn't mean we can't do anything to help prevent our skin from looking or getting worse by providing some key nutrients to help protect and restore it. Since this is a complex issue involving both environmental factors like sun damage and a diminished capacity to produce certain constituents, Douglas Labs takes a multifaceted approach, by combining healing Vitamin C and zinc with several plant-based nutrients such as bamboo extract to improve the skin's elasticity; French grape and melon extracts to supply antioxidants to promote its radiance and luminosity; and wheat extract, to help improve its ability to retain moisture (which also improves its smoothness and elasticity).

Product Notes:

Skin Nourish provides a unique blend of plant extracts, antioxidants, and nutrients that work within the body to provide skin radiance, hydration and a nourished appearance.

It combines bamboo silica (which can serve as a building block for collagen) with two special skin care formulations which were developed independently in France and are backed by clinical studies to show they work:

* Ceramosides™, which replenish the skin's lipids (natural fats) known as ceramides, which help form a barrier in the epidermis layer to retain water and repel pollutants. Their production falls off as we age, leading to dry, itchy skin, pulling sensations, and wrinkles. A pair of clinical studies have shown using a 30 mg a day dose of these plant-based ceramides (which are extracted from wheat, but with the gluten removed) for fifteen days can improve the skin's hydration, elasticity and appearance.

* SkinAx2™ is a blend of polyphenolic compounds (derived from grape seeds); an SOD (superoxide dismutase) concentrate (derived from melons); plus zinc and vitamin C. These all have antioxidant properties which combat the free radical damage caused by UV exposure and environmental toxins which can cause discoloration and other issues, and the latter two also help develop and maintain connective tissues such as collagen. A published clinical study of several dozen women between the ages of 40 and 70 with a dull facial complexion using SkinAx2 at this 150 mg dosage found: significantly improved "red pink" and “olive” colours; reduced overall facial skin imperfections by 18%, with significant improvements for dark circles, redness, and age spots; and luminosity increased by over 25%. Over three-quarters (82.4%) of the participants were satisfied with the product overall and found improvements on their facial skin, and about two-thirds reported looking better by the end of the two month study.
