The Canadian boreal forest is full of powerful and effective ingredients. Some have found their place at the center of the formulas of major cosmetic brands. This is particularly the case with Labrador tea, the ingredient par excellence at the heart of Lise Watier goat milk products. Learn how this powerful antioxidant helps your skin preserve its youthfulness.
The secret of the boreal forest
For centuries, Native Americans have enjoyed Labrador tea for its medicinal properties. After several years of research, Lise Watier has developed concentrated Labrador tea extract as a cosmetic ingredient with antioxidant properties. It is found in all the brand’s anti-aging products and make-up treatments. Labrador tea has the ability to help the skin preserve its youthfulness thanks to its antioxidant power.
What is an Antioxidant?
An antioxidant is an agent that prevents or slows cell oxidation by neutralizing free radicals. Free radicals such as stress, pollution, UV rays, food and smoke are molecules that disrupt the proper functioning of our cells. This imbalance leads to the gradual deterioration of cellular structures and therefore accelerated skin aging. In cosmetics, antioxidant molecules added to products like goat milk soap mainly fight against the effects of skin aging by protecting the skin.
Labrador tea is the strongest antioxidant in known cosmetic ingredients. Indeed, it obtains a score of 13,000 on the ORAC index (the capacity to absorb radicals derived from oxygen). This index makes it possible to determine the antioxidant power of a food. With a score of 13,000, Labrador tea ranks far ahead of vitamin E (90), grape seed extract (3,700) and vitamin C (4,000). We must therefore see Labrador tea as 3X more active than vitamin C, which is so loved in cosmetics.
