The Secrets to Ageing Gracefully

Ageing is one of life’s inevitable processes that we all strive to combat. 

When it comes to beauty, the signs of visible ageing that we are all familiar with like dullness, wrinkles and loss of volume, are all a simple reflection of what is happening below on a cellular level. As we age, our body’s physiology slows down, skin cells proliferate slower causing dullness and congestion, lipid levels reduce causing dryness, and collagen and elastin fibres become damaged and depleted, leaving skin without its once-plump support structure below, which causes lines and sagging to be seen on the surface. And while there is no preventing this completely, it is possible to delay these outcomes to a degree.

The key? Optimising our cellular health to enhance activity, repair damage, and assist in preventing future deterioration of skin cells and proteins. 

Enter the Age Defiance Collection, a trio of age reversal elixirs designed to feed and nourish the skin to allow it to function at its best, combatting signs of ageing with powerful peptides, vitamins and protective native extracts, all incorporated into a deeply nurturing and hydrating certified organic bases. Originally launched in 2014, it is now our best selling collection, and with good reason. Here’s why: 

Achieving noticeable results, naturally

That’s right, it isn’t a myth - you may have heard that it isn’t possible to achieve dramatic results using natural ingredients. This may be the case for some products, but it certainly isn’t true for all. Our philosophy is to utilise the most powerful vitamins, minerals and antioxidants nature provides, and combine them with the most sophisticated scientific advancements available (such as encapsulation and delivery systems) to ensure deep penetration within the skin - an absolute must in ensuring real results are achieved. This coupled with the use of bioavailable, nutritive plant oils and extracts means that not only are targeted concerns met, but skin is left luxuriously hydrated. Some key ingredients used throughout the Age Defiance trio include:  

PEPTIDES

Acting as messengers in the body, peptides prompt communication between cells and kick certain functionalities into gear, each one varying from peptide to peptide. Age Defiance incorporates Leuphasyl - Pentapeptide-18; a peptide that reduces the depth of wrinkles, Argireline - Acetyl Hexapeptide-3; a peptide that both reduces the degree of existing facial wrinkles and has been demonstrated to be effective against their development, and Eyeseryl - Acetyl Tetrapeptide-5;a peptide that has anti-edema properties to reduce puffy eyes and enhances skin elasticity, smoothness, and shows a decongesting effect.
Found in: Age Defiance Day and Age Defiance Eye Serums.    

Antarcticine - Pseudoalteromonas Ferment Extract

Derived from a type of bacteria found at the bottom of a glacier in Antarctica, Antarcticine increases collagen production and assists with increasing elastin formation, hydration and moisture in the skin, while also improving skin healing. Found in: Age Defiance Day Serum. 

Hyadisine Ha - Pseudoalteromonas Exopolysaccharides

A marine bacterial strain that is rich in glucuronic acid - like hyaluronic acid, but has even more potent water retaining capacity to moisturise and plump the skin, instantly plumping the appearance of wrinkles in the same way as HA.
Found in: Age Defiance Day and Age Defiance Eye Serums.  

Chromabright - Dimethylmethoxy Chromanyl Palmitate

A skin lightening and brightening active, which acts by inhibiting tyrosinase activity (the precursor to melanin production). It also has a photo-protective effect helping to prevent skin damage caused by UV radiation.
Found in: Age Defiance Night Serum. 

Coenzyme Q10 - Ubiquinone

CoQ10 plays an essential role in cellular function as an antioxidant, protecting skin against free radicals and DNA damage induced by UV light which then protects against future ageing.
Found in: Age Defiance Day, Age Defiance Eye and Age Defiance Night Serums. 

Vitamin E 

Tocopherol soothes dry, rough skin and helps to repair collagen. A lack of vitamin E can lead to blotchiness, loss of firmness of skin tone and give the impression of premature ageing.
Found in: Age Defiance Day, Age Defiance Eye and Age Defiance Night Serums.  

Magnesium Ascorbyl Palmitate (Vitamin C)

One of the most powerful and effective antioxidants that plays a vital role in the formation of collagen to assist with keeping the elasticity of the skin intact. It offers specific skin brightening actives and reduces the visible signs of ageing. Found in: Age Defiance Day, Age Defiance Eye and Age Defiance Night Serums. 

Australian Native Age Defying Extracts

Extremely potent native extracts have been incorporated into these formulations, containing an abundance of polyphenols, antioxidants and vitamins that are literally nature’s skin superfoods. Kakadu Plum, Quandong and Davidson Plum contain some of the world's highest concentrations of bioavailable and naturally derived vitamin C, providing antioxidant protection from free radical damage, pro-collagen 1 formation, diminishing hyperpigmentation, and an anti-inflammatory action.
Found in: Age Defiance Day and Age Defiance Night Serums. 

Bakuchiol

One of the most mispronounced terms since the introduction of Acai bowls, Bakuchiol is a plant-derived ingredient growing immensely in popularity for its likeness to retinoids, with the added benefit of being safe to use during pregnancy and lactation. Derived from the seeds and leaves of the Indian Babchi plant, Bakuchiol shares many of the same outcomes in the skin as retinol, including an increase in cellular turnover, improved skin texture, and inhibition in the production of melanin. Unlike retinol, it is also photo stable, which means it can be used throughout the day.  

Getting the most of your age defying ingredients

In addition to choosing the best ingredients to optimise skin health, it’s important to optimise the time of day you apply these ingredients, so if you’ve ever wondered why you need night AND day serums, there can be a few reasons why.

Day serums often include ingredients that boost cellular energy which results in a beautiful glow, and any sun-sensitising ingredients such as vitamin A, are skipped and reserved for nighttime.

Night products on the other hand are generally richer and designed to soothe, reduce inflammation, deeply hydrate, and repair damage, best done while the body is still and the parasympathetic nervous system is in rest and digest mode. You will also find any sun sensitisers like retinoids and AHAs in your night regime.

When it comes to eye products, these are carefully formulated to target specific concerns, whereas instead of the time of application being the focus, it’s all about that delicate skin around the peri orbital region, and the unique behaviours it exhibits. A great eye cream or serum will be a lighter texture (as heavier creams can often cause milia in this region) with hydrating ingredients to plump out fine lines, plus calming ingredients and decongestants to soothe puffiness and assist drainage of stagnant blood that can cause dark circles. Our Age Defiance Eye Serum contains all of these and more, including anti-wrinkle peptides to smooth expression lines. 

Complement your serums with beauty tools

The nourishing, anti-inflammatory ingredients contained in your night products also facilitate even better skin healing and cell repair when used in conjunction with tools designed to enhance penetration, such as a Dermal Roller. Our 0.25mm and 0.3mm home Dermal Roller features fine, hypoallergenic titanium needles that create very small micro channels on the surface of the skin and work to enhance the overall efficacy of our serums and elixirs. 

Boost your actives with the right cleanser and moisturiser

To complete your routine and best complement your age reversing serums, all you need now is to select the right cleanser and moisturiser for your individual needs.

Remember to tailor your choice of moisturisers to your skin in much the same way, with richer textures for dry depleted skin and lighter textures for oiler skin. Deeply dry or dehydrated skins tend to respond well to an oil layered over your moisturiser at night, creating a barrier to seal the nutrients and hydration in.
