Our Exclusive BLT-RC specifically addresses mature, damaged, and/or photo-aged and sensitive skin. Tamarind extract helps to repair, moisturize, and hydrate damaged skin, making this a great choice for dry and dehydrated skin profiles. Amped up with powerful L-Carnosine, a type of anti-oxidant that protects cells, allowing them to live longer, works in beautiful synergy with R-ALA. R-ALA is a multi-purpose antioxidant that neutralizes both water and fat soluble free radicals, therefore protecting cells more vigilantly.
More Information Regarding L-Carnosine
L-Carnosine is an endogenous (resulting from conditions within the organism) free-radical scavenger. The latest research indicates that apart from the function of protecting cells from oxidation-induced stress damage, carnosine appears to be able to extend the lifespan of cultured cells, rejuvenate senescent cells, inhibit the toxic effects of amyloid peptide (A beta), malondialdehyde, and hypochlorite to cells, inhibit glycosylation of proteins and protein-DNA and protein-protein cross-linking, and maintain cellular homeostasis.
Method of Application
Apply one to two times a day, during the water soluble phase of your routine (after you cleanse, tone, and exfoliate... before you apply any creams, lotions, or oils).
Shelf Life and Storage Information for Products and Ingredients
Finished products generally don't need to be refrigerated as they are preserved, but you can refrigerate them to extend shelf life. Shelf life is 9 - 12 months
Sample sizes do have a shorter shelf life (generally 3-6 months and items in jars can dry up quicker than this if the lid is not tightened well enough (except our vitamin C serums - use within 90 days).
Please try to keep out of high humidity or heat if possible! Store out of direct light and in dark cabinet if possible also!
Exfoliating Acid products will last 1 year.
The only thing we don't suggest refrigerating is the mandelic or salicylic acid serums as those can crystallize in the refrigerator and not go back to their normal state even if you warm them up.
Additional Items Requiring Refrigeration
