Seven Ingredients for Healthy, Supple Skin All Winter Long  

Winter is coming. And with it, dehydrated, dull, blotchy, flaky skin. With a little prep and pampering, you can avoid the winter skin blahs, and stay supple, soft, and rosy all through the season. Insulate your skin from the ravages of winter with these seven ultra-nourishing ingredients.




Protector, nourisher, barrier builder. This vitamin B3 derivative boosts collagen production, stimulates the synthesis of ceramides, and speeds cellular turnover to improve skin texture and firmness and promote a more youthful appearance. Additionally, its antioxidant properties fight age-accelerating free radicals, increase the biosynthesis of ceramides, boost nourishing fatty acid levels in the skin, prevent loss of water content, and stimulate microcirculation in the dermis.

Oat Protein

A soothing antioxidant- and peptide-rich protein with a profound ability to both scavenge free radicals and kick-start the body’s own production of antioxidants. Its high content of polyunsaturated fatty acids, lipids, and saponins reduce redness and irritation, protect against free radical damage, and draw in moisture to strengthen the skin barrier and keep skin looking full and healthy.

Aloe is oozing with healing and nourishing elements including antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E; anti-inflammatory enzymes; cell-repairing minerals copper and zinc; anti-bacterial saponins and salicylic acid; lignans for enhanced skin penetration; and cell-proliferating polysaccharides, fatty acids, and amino acids. It’s not just the goo that’s got a lot going on. The outer green leaf is also full of antioxidant polyphenolic compounds and anthraquinones. Vivant products use only whole leaf aloe to get all the benefits of this amazing plant.

Green Tea Extract

With its superabundance of cell-regenerating and collagen-promoting antioxidants and polyphenols, plus anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and astringent properties, green tea extract is a gentle, but potent protector and transformer. Reduces redness, regulates sebum, helps promote smooth, supple texture and radiant tone.

Grape Seed Oil

Cell proliferator. Hydrator. Collagen booster. Elasticity enhancer. Free radical fighter. This natural nourisher is loaded with beneficial fatty acids and flavonoids that make it a staunch ally for an overall healthier, smoother, more lustrous complexion. As a bonus, grape seed oil is non-comedogenic, pore-refining, and enhances dermal penetration making it an excellent carrier for delivering additional active ingredients into the skin.

Vitamin C

This antioxidant superhero is a must to keep skin bright through the long skin-dulling days of winter. Essential for collagen synthesis, vitamin C boosts both quantity and quality of collagen production. It’s also an anti-inflammatory agent and blood vessel strengthener to reduce redness. The powerful photoprotective effects of vitamin C are magnified when paired with vitamin E. Together they protect both the hydrophilic (water) and lipophilic (fat) compartments of the cell to suppress damage and initiate repair.
