Sublime Youth contains actives to detoxify the skin (Babchi seeds), phyto-extracts for elasticity and collagen production (Marine Bamboo), and anti-wrinkles and tensor effect ingredients (Acmella flower extract and Drift Kelp extract), plus a stable form of vitamin C (ACTI-C) to deeply renew the skin from inside out.
Our products contain a substantial amount of natural extracts, and therefore, color and aspect may vary from batch to batch, just as a vintage variation.
Why does this happen?
The answer is the weather. Every single growing season is unique. Every weather event will have an effect on the plant extracts that ultimately makes it to your skin everyday. In most cases, it is not a case of performance, but simply shaping the color and appearance of skincare product.

ACTI C (ethyl ascorbic acid) • Global skin optimizer & Antioxidant • It is a derivative of ascorbic acid, one of the most stable derivatives of ascorbic acid known. Once it penetrates into the skin, it is metabolized to ascorbic acid. Due to this process its efficacy is more pronounced than the one of pure ascorbic acid, more unstable.
MARINE BAMBOO EXTRACT (Himanthalia elongata extract) • Firming & Toning • It is an enriched fraction of fucosterol and phyco-carotenoids of the Himanthalia algae defense system, to fight against the negative side effects of aging and sun, down-regulating the production of metalloproteinases enzymes and up-regulating the genetic activity of elastin.

The main functions of Drift Kelp are regeneration, revitalizing & rejuvenation: up-regulation of leptin gene expression in aged skin cells that retards and reverses selected aspects of skin aging, boosts fibroblasts proliferation and collagen synthesis, enhances mitochondrial energy as a bioenergetic agent, promotes wound healing and acts as an antimicrobial defenses stimulation (β-defensin 2).
CHIA SEED OIL • Superfood & Super-Moisturizer • Chia seed is considered the richest botanical source of omega-3 fatty acids found in nature.

They also help maintain moisture levels, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as relieving dryness and peeling. Chia seed oil is also a great source of vitamin B3 and zinc, which helps with oily skin and clogged pores. Its fully charged with antioxidants, including chlorogenic acid and caffeic acid, as well as myricetin, quercetin, and kaempferol flavonoids. These components offer protection from environmental stressors. In fact, the antioxidants in chia seed oil have shown to be even stronger than vitamin C and vitamin E, two common and powerful antioxidants.
