With just one product, you can achieve the following:
1. Revitalize with Astaxanthin

2. Regenerate with Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF)
Chlorella Growth Factor is the unique nutrient found in chlorella, a single-celled green algae that’s rich in nucleic acids and amino acids. Nucleic acids such as RNA and DNA help to smooth and regenerate your skin.
3. Firm and Protect with Jojoba Oil
Jojoba is well known for being rich in the antioxidant vitamin E, which helps promote skin’s elasticity.
4. Hydrate with Shea Butter
Shea butter works to improve the appearance of skin with rich fatty acid content which helps keep skin looking plump, hydrated and youthful.
