Avalon Organics Intense Defense Oil-Free Moisturizer, 2 Ounce. Intense Defense with Vitamin C, for environmental stress and damage. This rejuvenating oil-free moisturizer nourishes with soft, non-greasy hydration while energizing skin for a smoother, firmer, more youthful appearance. Oxidative stress can cause free radical damage to skin resulting in collagen and elastin deterioration, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, freckles and sunspots. What causes this stress? Studies show that environmental factors, such as pollution, extreme temperatures, wind burn and even minimal exposure to UV light, can trigger damage to skin cells. The Intense Defense skincare line features a powerful medley of Vitamin C, Lemon Bioflavonoids and White Tea, all potent antioxidants proven to neutralize free radicals before they can cause damage, while naturally boosting collagen and elastin production. Over time, through skin's natural renewal cycle, damaged skin cells will be eliminated while antioxidants help prevent further damage to new cells. Skin can regain its youthful glow and continue to fight the signs of aging.Avalon Organics is grounded in the knowledge that all beauty begins within the Earth.
