MSM...Not Your Average Mature Skin Magician

MSM...Not Your Average Mature Skin Magician

If you've seen our serums, you may be familiar with our MSM Serum. MSM is not something seen very frequently in skincare products which is exactly why we wanted to formulate a serum around it. Alongside MSM, we've combined other amazing & unique ingredients such as; artemisia abrotanum & beet sugar extract to give you an all-purpose face serum for all skin types!

MSM also known as; Methylsulfonylmethane-is a naturally occurring sulfur derivative compound found in every cell of the human body. It is also found in green plants, fruits, & vegetables. It is a source of the most important component of collagen, keratin, hormones, enzymes, & proteins. It has been known to improve the health of hair, skin, & nails.  MSM has been used in skincare products to improve skin itching, redness, & inflammation. MSM is able to reduce inflammation because it has the ability to dramatically improve the cellular function of cell walls by making them work more efficiently, supporting detoxification which in turn improves the skins collagen levels. This detoxifies skin cells and reduces the inflammation of the skin.  It hydrates the skin & also helps balance skin color in those with conditions such as rosacea.  MSM improves overall skin health by strengthening your bodies keratin which reduces inflammation. This ingredient has been clinically proven to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, & pigmentation issues as well as helping to clear us eczema & acne. The skin-improving characteristics of this serum are magnified by blending the MSM with other ingredients to widen its benefits even further. 

Artemisia Abrotnum; also known as "Southernwood" is another key ingredient in our MSM Serum. It is an herb that has been used medicinally for centuries as an antiseptic, astringent, & stimulant. This herb is able to penetrate all three layers of the skin when applied topically. When applied to the skin, it has been shown to improve skin appearance, elasticity, increase blood flow to the skin, disinfect against fungal diseases, tone, & aid in lessening fine lines & wrinkles. 

Beet Sugar Extract is another ingredient that to most makes them question why it would possibly be added to a face serum. This extract is similar to beetroot juice & is used to treat a wide variety of things from heart disease to high blood pressure. When it comes to benefiting skin; it is great for anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, & skin brightening.  Beets are rich in both polysaccharides & sugars. Beet sugar extract can be used to effectively moisturize the skin. This extract is able to increase the concentration of natural moisturizing factors in the uppermost layer of skin to give not just short term, but long term hydration. Beet sugar extract is also known for its ability to fight bacteria & free radicals in the body. The benefits of this extract don't stop there! Beet Root Extract is an excellent contender for acting as an anti-inflammatory, able to help fight chronic skin conditions such as eczema & acne. 

If you are someone suffering from fine lines, eczema, acne, chronic inflammation, wrinkles, or skin pigmentation issues this is the serum for you!
