Relieves discomfort on contact – signs of redness within minutes.
Great on sunburn, after waxing or tweezing, before and after AHA and other irritating treatments, laser, microdermabrasion or other non-ablative procedures. Helps protect barrier lipids when skin is exposed to free radicals in tobacco smoke, urban smog or UV. Controls excess radicals that contribute to daily inflammation – the bottom line of sensitive skin and aging.
Discovered in China more than 5000 years ago, teas from the camellia sinensis family have been the focus of much scientific research this decade. White Tea is the rarest, and contains the most potent antioxidant blend of all these teas, while Green Tea calms and protects against daily sensitizers. Red Tea, which originates from South Africa provides strong protection against environmental stressors.
Instant Calm Ultra Complex blends the antioxidant activity of White Tea with Sea Whip – the most potent soothing ingredient found in the ocean to date.
