Ingredients

Spascriptions ingredients Algae
Algae
What is Algae anyway? The term “algae” covers many different organisms capable of producing oxygen through photosynthesis that grow in marine habitats. Algae contain chlorophyll but lack true stems, roots, leaves, and vascular tissue. Not only does Algae have some wonderful protective properties, it is also extremely moisturising. It can help to regulate moisture balance in the different layers of the outer layer of the skin. It works as a natural humectant providing a reserve of water in the tissues, locking water in the upper layers of the skin, keeping it supple and hydrated. Algae provides the skin with minerals and trace elements, essential nutrients that help our skin maintain and reinforce its natural functions. Key minerals found in algae are: Magnesium: Relaxes the body, soothes, and calms the skin; Potassium: Purifying, potassium helps to push fluids and toxins out of the skins cells; Sodium: Hydrating, by drawing moisture into the cells, keeping skin soft and supple; Calcium: helps to promote collagen and elastin production; Iodine: Detoxifies and increases the body’s metabolism and stimulates cellular renewal; Bromide: Relaxes and soothes the skins tissues.With all these skin loving benefits, it is no wonder, that Algae is a popular ingredient in many of our skin care applications.
Spascriptions Ingredients Charcoal
Charcoal
Throughout the day, toxins from the world around you clogs your pores. When your pores aren’t clear, neither is your complexion. The oil and dirt make your pores appear larger, more visible, and less attractive. Charcoal acts as a magnet to gently draw out dirt, oil and impurities from your clogged pores. Charcoal neutralises environmental toxins, and also lifts away dead skin cells gently, without over-drying your skin.
Clay
Clay
Shrinking the size of skin pores can help tremendously with keeping your face clean and blemishes at bay. Clay acts as a magnet to draw-out and capture dirt, oil and impurities from clogged pores. The use of a clay mask will leave your skin feeling renewed, incredible clean, oxygenated and less inflamed. After application of a clay mask, you will feel your face tighten as the clay dries. Clay also helps control the overproduction of sebum, the natural oil of the skin, that encourages the production of bacteria which irritates the skin. This can result in acne. Clay has been used for centuries to beautify and brighten skin.
Cocacoa butter
Cocoa Butter
Cocoa butter comes from the cacao bean, which is found inside the cocoa pod that grows on the cacao tree. The cocoa pod is a large, gourd-shaped fruit; inside the pod are 30 to 40 cocoa seeds. After these seeds are dried, roasted, and pressed, the vegetable fat is extracted from the beans. This Cocoa Butter has a velvety texture, pleasing fragrance and contains emollients properties that are specially designed to make the external layers of the skin softer. An antioxidant powerhouse, Cocoa Butter fights off free radicals that can cause skin ageing, dark patches, and dull skin. It also increases your skin’s hydration (water content) by reducing evaporation.
Spascriptions ingredients Coconut
Coconut
Coconut oil is rich in vitamin E, proteins, fatty acids & minerals. It has amazing properties that revitalise, nourish and help your skin retain moisture, making it especially good for aging skin. Coconut oil can work as an eye makeup remover by breaking down the inky substances and hydrating the area in the process. Coconut oil even works on the toughest of waterproof mascaras. Coconut oil is a natural anti-fungal and antibacterial substance and can be used to clear your face of acne or gunk built up in your pores.
Collagen
Collagen
Collagen is a protein present in all the body’s organs and tissues. Its main function is to give your skin its shape and elasticity, by providing the matrix that preserves its structure. Collagen helps revive skin elasticity and minimise the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet. It promotes soft, smooth and radiant skin, enhancing elasticity, while boosting skin strength. Collagen is a cutting edge ingredient, and as more benefits are uncovered, we are incorporating it into more of our product formulations.
Coq10

CoQ10
CoQ10, also known as ubiquinone or coenzyme Q, is an enzyme produced naturally in the human body, found in every cell and tissue. It is involved a number of biological functions including helping to produce energy, neutralising free radicals, and keeping cells both inside the body and in the skin healthy. A young body has the ability to produce as much CoQ10 as it needs. However, various factors such as aging and stress can lower your levels of CoQ10. As a result, the ability of cells to regenerate and withstand stress declines. The lack of CoQ10 results in an impeded ability to produce collagen and elastin. Collagen is important because it makes your skin firm, while elastin gives your skin flexibility. The loss of collagen and elastin causes your skin to wrinkle and sag. CoQ10 is an essential antioxidant that provides the energy source for cellular renewal and smooth, firm skin. This makes CoQ10 a key player in making your skin look younger.

Spascriptions Ingredients Cucumber

Cucumber
The older you get, the fewer antioxidants you have in your skin to combat wrinkles and sun damage. Cucumbers are a source of several compounds that fight inflammation and aging. Cucumbers contain vitamin C, an antioxidant. They also have plenty of vitamin K, also an antioxidant, which fights dark circles under the eyes. This is why a couple of cucumber slices placed over tired, puffy eyes in the morning makes you look refreshed. Vitamin B-5, is another compound found in cucumbers that helps your skin retain moisture. The vitamin A in cucumbers fights dark spots and freckles because it helps control your skin’s production of melanin. Cucumber extract soothes and cools your skin while leaving your skin smooth and silky. Your face will feel clean, refreshed and revitalised!

Dead Sea Minerals
Well-known throughout the globe for medicinal healing powers, the Dead Sea located in Israel contains the most natural mixture of salts & minerals, geared to draw out dirt and impurities from your skin. Minerals such as magnesium, sodium and potassium enhance your skins ability to retain moisture, making it healthy and silky smooth. Fantastic for exfoliation, these minerals peel away dead skin cells and restore elasticity. An exotic yet crucial ingredient for your skin care.

Spascriptions Ingredients gold

Gold
Gold has long been a sign of beauty and elegance. Gold extract is known to reduce the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles by firming and toning the skin, offering a luxurious anti-aging skin treatment. It also provides intense hydration to revitalise, smooth and soften your skin for a radiant complexion. Gold can increase the elasticity of your skin helping you to look younger, reducing the likelihood of dryness. Gold has been attributed to enhancing the appearance of the skin by minimising irregularities and smoothing skin tone. It lessens the production of melanin in the body which is responsible for tanning of the skin when exposed to sunlight.

Spascriptions Ingredients grapefruit

Grapefruit
With its distinct flavour, the powerful taste of grapefruit is not for everyone. But with its high nutritional content and refreshing scent, more and more people are using the ingredient as a skin-care secret. Rich in antioxidants and vitamins, grapefruit extract applied topically can provide an array of anti-aging benefits like evening skin tone and fighting off free radicals. Grapefruit extract helps fade age spots and increase skin luminosity. Effectively unclogs pores, removes facial dirt and skin impurities for a bright radiant look.

Tea tree

Green Tea
Green Tea is a potent anti-aging ingredient that combats signs of aging when ingested or applied to your skin. Green Tea also has anti-inflammatory properties, thanks to its high content of polyphenols. The catechins in green tea reduce irritation, redness, and swelling. Green tea is powerful antibacterial agent for treating acne and congested pores. It helps kill systemic bacterial inflammation for smoother, toned skin. It is full of Vitamin B2 and Vitamin E, both essential for skin health maintenance. Caffeine and tannins in green tea help shrink blood vessels around the eyes, making it a godsend for treating puffy eyes and dark circles.

Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic Acid
Naturally occurring in the body, Hyaluronic Acid secures moisture and creates fullness. Contrary to how it sounds, Hyaluronic “Acid” isn’t harsh or skin-stripping at all. In fact, it’s the exact opposite – a powerful moisture-binding ingredient, that keeps skin plump and hydrated. As we age, skin moisture can drop significantly, which makes the skin lose elasticity and expose the signs of aging on the skin. Hyaluronic Acid plays a critical role in skin health with its unique ability to hold in moisture (1000 ml of water per gram of hyaluronic acid). Hyaluronic Acid is also a “smart nutrient” as it can adjust its moisture absorption rate based on the humidity—relative to the season and the climate. Hyaluronic Acid retains water to keep skin hydrated and alleviate visible dryness. This increases the skin’s elasticity & firmness, reduces fine lines & wrinkles and fights the signs of skin ageing.

Micellar water

Micellar Water
Micellar water burst onto the skincare scene a few years ago. Micellar water gets its name from micelles, which, when it comes to skincare, are teeny-tiny cleansing molecules (made up of something known as surfactants) that are suspended in water solution. The surfactants that make up these micelles partially love water and partially love oil, which is ideal because when applied to the skin, these micelles attract the oil and grime. Washing your face with hard water can actually be detrimental to skin health, as it has been shown to disrupt the skin’s barrier function. If the skin’s barrier function is disrupted, it can lead to the worsening of conditions such as rosacea, acne, eczema and dermatitis and basically means that your skin is not protected as well from extrinsic factors. Like a magnet, micelles dissolve, capture and gently lift away skin impurities, oil and makeup from your face without harsh rubbing. Results are beautiful skin that is perfectly cleansed, moisturised and refreshed.

Retinol

Retinol
As you age, the firmness of your skin dissipates, and lines and wrinkles form. Retinol is a derivative of Vitamin A. It stimulates the production of new skin cells and increases collagen fabrication in your skin. This stimulation firms the skin and minimises lines and wrinkles. Retinol even helps fade dark spots that result from aging, leveling your skin tone. These effects make Retinol a key ingredient of battling aging skin in our anti-aging products.

Spascription ingredients rose

Rose
Rose oil is extracted from rose petals. Containing a complex array of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, rose oil has excellent emollient (softening) properties for moisturising dry skin; it also offers antiseptic and astringent properties to treat acne, as well as anti-inflammatory properties that help treat redness and inflammation. Rose oil can also help refine skin texture. The oil is a tissue regenerator loaded with therapeutic benefits for the skin.

Sea Kelp

Sea Kelp
Not to be confused with seaweed, Sea Kelp is unique kind of seaweed.  Sea kelp is officially labelled as a brown seaweed, even though it can vary in colour. Sea Kelp only grows in saltwater and specific rocky marine habitats, while seaweed can grow in any form of marine habitat. Sea Kelp is loaded with skin-nourishing nutrients, such as Omega-3 essential fatty acids and polyphenols. These nutrients help to reduce redness and soothe irritated dry skin to leave skin feeling smooth, soft and firm- for a more youthful looking appearance!

Seaweed
Seaweed
Seaweed may annoy beachgoers at the shore, but as a skincare ingredient, it can be surprisingly beneficial for the skin. Apart from its ultra-hydrating qualities, seaweed boasts anti-aging and anti-inflammatory benefits. It’s also packed with amino acids, vitamins and minerals, and its anti-bacterial properties make it an ideal ingredient for fighting everything from acne to signs of ageing. Seaweed’s nutrient-rich benefits increase elasticity and activation of collagen synthesis, causing a lifting of facial contours, so lines become less visible. Seaweed is also known for its soothing and smoothing effects for supple skin.
Shea butter
Shea Butter
Shea butter is a skin superfood that comes from the seeds of the fruit of the Shea (Karite) tree and that is naturally rich in vitamins A, E and F.

Spascriptions Ingredients orange
Vitamin C
We’re used to taking Vitamin C to boost our health. It is a vital ingredient for fending off a cold, or even the flu, as well as lessening stress levels. Most people are not aware, but Vitamin C also works wonders on our skin. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, which offers superior protection from the signs of ageing. It helps to boost collagen production, improve elasticity, promotes cell regeneration and protects against damaging environmental aggressors. Not only does it penetrate your skin to fight free radical damage caused by the environment, but it also helps fade pigment over saturation, stop inflammation, and repair lackluster complexions.
