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 Our Products and IngredientsFinished Products generally don't need to be refrigerated as they are preserved, but you can refrigerate them to extend their shelf life. The shelf life for most products is 9-12 months. Vitamin C Serum(s) and VitaResurface products should continually be refrigerated to extend their shelf life.
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 for our Vitamin C Serums - use within 90 days).
direct light and in a dark cabinet when possible:
Exfoliating Acid - products have a shelf life of 9-12 months. The only things we don't suggest refrigerating are the Mandelic Acid Serums or Salicylic Acid Serums, as they can crystallize in the refrigerator. If this happens, you can set the product into a hot water bath to see if the crystals will dissolve.
Additional Items That Require Refrigeration and/or Kept in the Dark:
Hydrosols - remove 1 ounce of hydrosol and add it into a separate, sterilized spray bottle and spritzer. Keep the larger bottle in the refrigerator.
Carrier Oils - generally, you can refrigerate all carrier oils, although some very rich oils will solidify. This is fine. All you have to do is take it out, warm it up at room temperature and it should liquefy. If not, set the bottle in a hot water bath and occasionally shake the bottle, which will hopefully turn into a liquid. There are some oils with a super long shelf life, like Coconut Cream and Jojoba Oil.
Refrigeration is not necessary, but it surely won't hurt:
Essential Oils - essential oils are best stored in a cool, dark place.
Co2 Extracts - these should continually be refrigerated.
Butters - we suggest refrigerating our "skincare" butters. You can remove
what you need and keep the rest in the fridge.
Clays - keep in a dry, dark place. Shelf life is at least 2 years.
Herbs - all herbs (whole or ground) should be kept in a dark, cool and
Herbal (liquid) Extracts - these are created using alcohol. The alcohol pulls
the constituents from each herbs - root, trunk, leaves, and flowers. They
have a shelf life of 3-5 years.
They can be kept in the refrigerator (or a dark DRY place)
Other Raw Ingredients - i.e., Sodium PCA, Honeyquat, Oat Beta Glucan, etc.
will all have a different shelf life.
Hyaluronic Acid hydrates skin, can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water
R-ALA (alpha lipoic acid, bioavailable form) antioxidant that protects skin cells from damage as it is able to neutralize both water and fat soluble free radicals
Tamarind Extract hydrating, healing, soothing
Oat Beta Glucans stimulates formation of collagen, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
L-Carnosine extends life of skin cells, protects cells from oxidation-induced stress damage, rejuvenates aging cells, maintains cellular homeostasis
