Capillary Health Cream

$28.99

Capillary Health Cream uses a century-old blend of ingredients to help reduce the appearance of varicose veins and capillaries. Skin Actives Capillary Health Cream contains the best that tradition and phytochemistry can offer to protect the fine capillaries that bring oxygen (and take away the carbon dioxide) to our cells. Essential fatty acids present in rosehip seed oil will help the skin build a strong barrier to keep water in and bad stuff out. Sea kelp bioferment has all the benefits that brown algae bring from the ocean for noticeably healthier looking skin. Horse chestnut and butcher’s broom have been used for centuries to protect blood vessels. You will also find other beneficial extracts: licorice, grape seed, Gotu kola (Centella asiatica) plus soy isoflavones, rutin and hesperidin.  Capillary Health Cream can be used on all skin types.
