THIS UNIQUE BLEND CAPTURES THE ESSENCE OF THE ARCTIC PLANT WORLD
The landscape is pristine, the air is very pure, and the Arctic waters are crystal clear. In the brief summer months, the sun never sets. In the long Arctic winter, snow and darkness reign for months while the magical Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights, plays across the sky.
The plants that grow in these extreme conditions are resilient. They store up as many nutrients as possible in order to survive the harsh Arctic winter months. As a result, these trees, lichen, berries and roots are packed with vitamins, antioxidants and minerals.
The anti-ageing mechanism of the active ingredients blend of the INARI Arctic Beauty range is based on antioxidant properties of the ingredients used, their ability to combat photo-ageing, and their collagen and hyaluronic acid synthesis boosting activities, as well as observations in clinical trials. Safety and clinical evidence on sensitive or problematic skin has been reviewed.
Rhodiola Rosea root
The Rhodiola rosea plant, also called “Ginseng of the North” or “Golden Root,” has yellow or purple blossoms and beautiful bluish-green leaves and primarily grows at high altitudes, where the climate is cold, and the soil is dry and sandy. Since the plant is used to surviving in the Arctic climate, the plant’s bulbous roots contain a high percentage of antioxidant flavonoids and help to decrease hyperpigmentation, keeping skin smooth and healthy.
The Chaga mushroom (Inonotus obliquus) grows on birch trees in very cold and Northern climates and is known as a strong antioxidant thanks to high levels of beta-glucane. The beta-glucans stimulate the skin’s repairing mechanism, so the skin is plumped up from the inside, significantly reducing wrinkles and fine lines.
Pinus sylvestris, or Scots Pine, is cultivated in many places across Europe but still prefers dry, sandy or rocky soil and colder temperatures. The bark extract of the Scots Pine is a well-known botanical complex which has strong antioxidant and, therefore, anti-ageing properties. The Flavanti® Pine Bark extract is manufactured from the bark of Scots Pines growing in the Lapland area of Finland.
Cloudberries (Rubus chamaemorus) occur naturally throughout the Northern hemisphere where they grow wild in marsh areas. The fruit extract of the wild Nordic plant is a powerhouse of antioxidants, Vitamins E and C, both vital for maintaining a healthy skin. Cloudberries have linoleic and alpha-linoleic acid (Omega 6 and Omega 3) and beta-carotene (vitamin A).
Lingonberry (Vaccinium vitis idaea) seed oil is native to the Arctic tundra and has a high percentage of alpha-linoleic acid and antioxidant vitamin E. While vitamin E occurs naturally in human skin as an important antioxidant, linoleic acid is required for the normal skin barrier function. The hydrating, firming and wrinkle-reducing efficacy of the special Lingonberry LBA50® complex has been demonstrated by clinical tests.
Bilberries are mostly collected from wild plants growing on publicly accessible lands throughout northern Europe, where they are plentiful. The bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus) leaf extract contains high levels of polyphenols which help protect skin from free radicals, boost the skin’s microcirculation, and have a brightening effect. Bilberry leaf extract is a strong antioxidant and gently tones and purifies skin. The topical antioxidants help prevent oxidative stress for the skin and thus moderate the ageing process.
