Product Description & Benefits:
Astaxanthin is a carotenoid, i.e. a carotene-like chemical. Carotenoids, and especially astaxanthin, protect cells against oxidation by 1) quenching singlet oxygen and dissipating the energy as heat and 2) scavenging free radicals to prevent and terminate chain reactions. Due to its particular molecular structure, astaxanthin serves as an extremely powerful antioxidant. It has a very effective quenching effect against singlet oxygen, a powerful scavenging ability for lipid and free radicals and effectively breaks peroxide chain reactions. Carotenoids are effective at low oxygen concentrations, complementing the activity of vitamin E which is effective at higher oxygen concentrations. Natural astaxanthin has been shown to be a potent antioxidant over 500 times stronger than vitamin E and 10 times stronger than beta-carotene. Astaxanthin has also been shown to enhance and modulate the immune system. These effects in combination or separately may reduce the acute inflammation reaction of the skin and tissue just beneath the skin that follows excessive exposure to UV radiation.

This skin care active ingredient is made by a licensed, high-quality laboratory of skin care ingredients. Make Me Heal has partnered with leading laboratories and manufacturers of skin care ingredients to come up with the largest assortment of high-quality active ingredients that are effective for your skin. These ingredients are backed by scientific research and testing.

What's Do It Yourself (DIY) Skin Care?


DIY Skin Care is an emerging trend in the beauty world where consumers are taking control of their skin care regimen and are making their own home-based recipes of skincare products by combining scientifically proven active ingredients inside creams. DIY presents an opportunity to create affordable beauty products at your home and to try different ingredients to arrive at recipes that are the most optimal for your skin needs. You can use DIY to simply copy well-known, expensive creams and make your own cheaper home version, or to combine your favorite cream with an ingredient that you've found to be beneficial.

Directions For Use:
Beginning users should look to use our ready made ELS or Antioxidant Booster, as they both include Astaxanthin. Experienced users can add a small amount to any Cream or Serum, limited only by the strong red color. Use as much as you like as long as the color is okay. Astaxanthin can also be used during the daytime under your sunscreen for extra protection from sunlight.
