Apocynin inhibits an enzyme, NADPH oxidase, and in so doing it decreases oxidative stress; it also has anti-inflammatory activity. It promotes the survival of stem cells and the cells derived from stem cells by promoting synthesis of collagen 17, a protein crucial to the anchoring of the new cells to the dermal/epidermal junction, preventing skin thinning and premature aging. Add apocynin to your favorite cream or lotion for an added antioxidant and anti-aging boost or try one of our Advanced Ageless skin, hair and nail products to take full advantage of the benefits of Apocynin on your skin.
How it works
- Reduces oxidative stress
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
How to use it
Beginner: Add 1 tube to 4 oz of your favorite base cream or water-based formula.
Apocynin has a tendency to separate after mixing, mix well before use if you experience some separation. Try our Advanced Ageless line of finished products.
