One of the most desired and recommended antioxidants on the market, Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) is an enzyme that eliminates and fights excess free radical scavengers and other reactive oxygen species. As adults reach the age of 60 and beyond, the amount of SOD in normal skin diminishes and is incapable of adequately neutralizing large amounts of reactive oxygen species28-31. With environmental and other influences such as sunlight, smoking, and diet contributing to the generation of reactive oxygen species, it is critical to optimize S.O.D levels.
Method of Application
Apply liberally 1-2 times a day at the beginning of the water soluble phase in your skin care routine (after you cleanse, and before any other water-based serums, before you apply any lotions, creams, and oils).This is a liquidy serum and application is as simple as misting this on your skin. Let dry naturally and continue with your routine as usual. We designed this product as a superior antioxidant with a stronger percentage of Super Oxide Dismutase for those desiring an amped up product. The S.O.D infused with the other beneficial ingredients has given us a delightfully inspiring finished product.
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 their shelf life. The shelf life for most products is 9-12 months.
Vitamin C Serum(s) and VitaResurface products should always 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 our Vitamin C Serums - use within 90 days).
Please keep your products out of high humidity, heat, and direct
light, and keep them 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 the Salicylic Acid Serums as those 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 Requiring 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 of the 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, setting the bottle in a hot water bath and occasionally shaking the bottle will hopefully turn into a liquid.
^There are some oils that have 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 always be refrigerated.
Butters - we suggest refrigerating our "skincare' butters. You can take out 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 dry location.
Herbal (liquid) Extracts - these are created using alcohol. The alcohol pulls the constituents from each herb. Root, Trunk, Leaves, and Flowers. Extracts have a shelf life of 3-5 years. They can be kept in the refrigerator (or a dark DRY place)
Other Various Raw Ingredients - i.e. Sodium PCA, Honeyquat, Oat Beta Glucan, etc. will all have a different shelf life.

Venuceane™ originating in the extreme heat of deep sea hydrothermal vents,these living beings equip themselves with particularly effective and specific defense mechanisms, in order to survive. Through iotechnology, Venuceane™ harnesses the power of Thermus thermophilus to bring its benefits to human skin. Venuceane™ potentiates the self-protective capability of the skin, generating a flexible and modulated response to aggression, while the active substance is stable and almost inexhaustible. It prevents the visible signs of photo-ageing (spots, wrinkles, dryness) while protecting cell structures from UV damage and reinforces skin integrity.
