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 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
Hydrosols - Take out 1/2 oz to 1 oz in a separate spray bottle from your original container and keep the larger bottle in the refrigerator!
Carrier Oils - Generally you can refrigerate ALL carrier oils, they will solidify in some cases. This is FINE all you have to do is take it out warm it up at room temp and it will be liquid again!
There are some oils that have a super long shelf life like coconut oil for instance! That does not need to be refrigerated, but it cannot hurt it either!
Essential Oils - Essential oils are best stored in a cool dark place.
Co2 Oils - 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.
Essential oils - These can be refrigerated to increase their shelf life!
Clays - Keep in a dry, dark place (shelf life is at least 2 years)
Herbs - (whole or ground) These should last a good year at least - Keep in a dark, cool and dry location.
Herbal Extracts - [powder] Keep these also in a dark, DRY place. You can keep in the fridge, but make sure the seal is on very tight so you don't get moisture in. [1 year at least].
Herbal Extracts - [liquid] These can be kept in the refrigerator (or a dark DRY place] [3 years at least]
Other Various Raw Ingredients - i.e. Sodium PCA, Honeyquat, Iat Beta Glucan etc will all have a different shelf life (we are working on adding this to the ingredient pages.

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.
