Hydration is a fundamental feature of healthy and rejuvenated skin, and vital to overall skin health – well-hydrated skin is plump, glowing and younger-looking.
We blend unique actives from Earth’s deep forests, nature’s expert in moisture management, to help maintain the longevity and health of your skin.
Supplying moisture to your skin is a simple and effective anti-ageing strategy, nourishing and delivering optimum lift and firmness.
We love all the wonderful active ingredients in our JIV.ELAN products, and have gathered some of our favourites and their benefits here for you.
Peptides are naturally occurring chain of amino acids that enhance collagen production, reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
Peptides act like messengers, sending signals to our cells to tell them how to function, and alerting our skin to the need to generate more collagen.
Peptides stimulate collagen synthesis & skin cell growth and repair.
Active ingredients or active agents in a skin care product are those ingredients that cause physical changes in the appearance of the skin.
A key component of the body’s connective tissues, hyaluronic acid cushions and lubricates, as well as enhances tissue repair and protection.
A unique quality of this acid is that it can adjust its moisture absorption rate based on the humidity.
Hyaluronic acid increases skin moisture, boosts elasticity and improves appearance of fine lines, promoting younger-looking skin and improving overall skin health.
Vitamins and minerals
Vitamins and minerals are integral to cellular growth, development and health. In particular, they are critical in nourishing and protecting the skin from oxidation damage, whilst promoting moisturising, anti-inflammatory effects, skin-lightening and stimulating microcirculation in the dermis.
Vitamins B5 & B3
Vitamin B5 (Penthenol) attracts water to the skin, regenerates and improves skin elasticity. It also has a conditioning and softening effect.
Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide), when applied topically has been shown to increase ceramide and free fatty acid levels in the skin, preventing water loss and stimulating micro-circulation in the dermis.
Vitamin C (Ascorbic acid) is an important antioxidant that helps build collagen, reduce inflammation, and promote elasticity to plump the skin. It also enhances the skin’s repair process, repairs cells, rejuvenates skin and gives it a healthy appearance.
Its ability to rejuvenate cells also helps to reduce the appearance of skin discoloration, and to fade and repair scars.
Vitamin E (Tocopherol) is a soothing, moisturising, and protective agent that decreases the roughness of skin.
It is also an effective antioxidant that helps fight free radicals, which significantly contribute to premature skin ageing.
Vitamin A (Retinol) also know as Retin A or Tretinoin, thickens and stimulates the dermis – where collagen, elastin and blood vessels exist – reducing wrinkles and increasing blood flow to the surface of the skin.
In many cases Retinoids (a derivative) can irritate the skin, which is why we don’t use them in our JIV.ELAN products. We only blend using natural plant actives that are rich in natural Vitamin A.
We specially source this from the pristine ocean waters of Patagonia. High-purity fucoidan extract is clinically proven to smooth, protect, and provide anti-aging properties. It helps to maintain the youthful appearance of skin by protecting its building blocks and enhancing the dermal condition.
Fucoidan extract also reduces redness, increases moisture retention, and activates key restorative genes within the skin.
Antioxidants are nutrients that slow or prevent the reactions caused by toxic free radicals.
They are vital in preventing and repairing oxidative damage to skin tissue by encouraging cell growth, for healthier looking skin.
They also protect the skin from natural damage such as breakages and ageing, as well as from environmental stressors such as the sun’s UV radiation.
We all need protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays, sunlight exposure and environmental aggressors. Sun protection helps to prevent signs of premature aging on your skin. It also allows your skin to repair and rejuvenate itself and reduces the risk of skin cancer.
JIV.ELAN brings together the soul and timeless beauty of nature. Our all natural skin care products are specifically designed to hydrate, tone, firm and deeply rejuvenate the skin.
