Medik8: Award-winning Skincare Cosmeceuticals
Blemish AOX is a powerful, advanced and stable antioxidant system delivered in a lightweight and 100% oil-free serum. Formulated with chirally correct copper PCA, a revolutionary ingredient from Medik8 Firewall research, this product has optimum antioxidant performance and is proven to be 40 times greater than that of regular L-ascorbic acid. When using Blemish AOX, the skin is shielded from harmful free-radicals and environmental damage and protected against premature aging. Boosted with beta-glucan and niacinamide, which work in unison to increase the skin’s ability to repair itself, Blemish AOX keeps the skin functioning at its best. This dual performance serum helps to protect and maintain collagen levels to prevent fine lines and wrinkles, while assisting in reinforcing the skin’s mechanisms to maintain a youthful appearance.
Blemish AOX™ is an excellent product for people with problem, oily or combination skin as it is 100% oil free -the first super-antioxidant actually designed for blemished and oily skin.
Blemish AOX™ Technology
Copper PCA is the copper salt of L-pyrrolidone carboxylic acid (L-PCA). PCA, being a physiological component of the outer layer of the skin, means it is not only a very effective ingredient but it is also extremely compatible with the skin. Copper PCA has an exceptionally high antioxidant capacity, meaning it has the ability to neutralize free radicals in the skin, which damage collagen and contribute to contribute to premature skin aging. Copper PCA has shown to have an antioxidant capacity 40 times stronger than that of regular L-ascorbic acid, proving its skin protecting properties. (add spaces) Medik8 has patents pending on this pioneering copper PCA ingredient research, where copper PCA has been tested throughout development for its impressive antioxidant ability. Therefore Blemish AOX™ technology is exclusive to Medik8 skincare.
Blemish AOX™ is non-acidic and is developed with chirally correct copper PCA, which is the most effective and non-irritating form of the ingredient. It is also highly stable so the antioxidant performance is maintained throughout the product’s life cycle and does not cause pro-oxidation. Blemish AOX™ activity is enhanced by being formulated in an aqueous gel environment, where antioxidant capacity remains high compared to an emulsion (oil and water) equivalent.
