Exploring DNA Serums Ingredients

Posted by Botany,

In the quest for radiant and youthful skin the secret can lie in harnessing the power of nature’s finest ingredients.

At Botany, we’re committed to crafting skincare solutions that integrate science with cutting-edge natural ingredients. Our DNA Serums are no exception, carefully formulated to address a multitude of concerns, from hydration and brightening to firming and revitalisation.

Let’s delve into the key ingredients that supercharge each of our serums, and show why they are such powerhouses in their respective roles.

Bakuchiol: Bakuchiol, derived from the seeds and leaves of the babchi plant, is a natural alternative to retinol, renowned for its myriad benefits for the skin. The potent antioxidant properties of bakuchiol help to neutralise free radicals, protecting the skin from environmental damage and preventing premature aging. Unlike retinol, bakuchiol is gentle on the skin, making it suitable for those with sensitivity or who are unable to tolerate traditional retinoids. Bakuchiol also promotes collagen production and improves skin elasticity, resulting in firmer, smoother skin with reduced fine lines and wrinkles while its anti-inflammatory properties, soothe redness and irritation, helping to calm acne-prone skin. With its impressive array of anti-aging benefits, bakuchiol features as a primary ingredient of our Age Reversal Serum.

Niacinamide: Also known as vitamin B3, this versatile nutrient is celebrated for its ability to improve skin texture, reduce the size of pores, and even out skin texture. With its anti-inflammatory attributes, niacinamide effectively calms irritation and diminishes redness, making it an ideal addition for those with sensitive or acne-prone skin. Yet, it’s niacinamide’s dual action in shielding the skin from environmental aggressors like pollution and UV radiation, while also addressing blotchiness and hyperpigmentation, that establishes it as an indispensable ingredient in our Protect Serum. Moreover, its role in fortifying the skin’s natural barrier function contributes to improving texture and promoting a smoother, healthier skin tone.

Panthenol: Also known as provitamin B5, panthenol is a water-soluble vitamin that penetrates deeply into the skin, where it undergoes conversion into pantothenic acid, an essential component of the skin’s natural barrier. Acting as a superior hydrating agent, panthenol attracts and retains moisture, resulting in soft and smooth skin, a key reason for its inclusion in our Hydrate Serum. Its anti-inflammatory properties soothe irritation and redness, making it suitable for sensitive or irritated skin. Moreover, panthenol supports skin regeneration and aids in wound healing, helping to repair and strengthen the skin’s protective barrier.

Beta Carotene: As a powerful antioxidant, beta carotene helps neutralise free radicals, protecting the skin from oxidative stress and aiding in the repair of damaged skin. It is broken down and converted into vitamin A in the body, which plays a crucial role in promoting skin cell turnover and regeneration, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance. Its ability to support collagen production also aids in maintaining skin elasticity and firmness, helping to minimise the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines solidifying it as an integral ingredient in our Age Reversal Serum. Beta carotene’s contribution to skin health, enhancing hydration and improving overall skin tone, is second to none.

Kakadu Plum: Shining a spotlight on an Australian native superfruit, kakadu plum makes up one half of the dynamic duo that is featured in our Glow Serum. Bursting with vitamin C, antioxidants, and essential nutrients, it is a game changing ingredient that rejuvenates and revitalises the skin. Surpassing even oranges in its vitamin C content, kakadu plum ignites collagen production, fostering firmness and elasticity while illuminating the complexion and diminishing the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation. Furthermore, its antioxidant properties shields the skin from environmental stressors, like UV radiation and pollution, preventing premature aging and promoting a youthful radiance. With its rejuvenating and brightening properties, Kakadu plum helps maintain skin health and vibrancy, elevating it as a truly cherished indigenous botanical treasure.

Hyaluronic Acid: It is no surprise that hyaluronic acid is one of the premier ingredients in our Hydrate Serum. With its remarkable ability to attract and retain moisture, it  infuses skin with intense hydration, helping to plump and rejuvenate it. By replenishing moisture levels, hyaluronic acid not only provides immediate relief for dry, dehydrated skin but also helps to improve elasticity and suppleness over time. Its exceptional hydrating abilities identify it as a go-to for individuals with dry skin, while its lightweight, non-greasy texture ensures suitability for all types, including oily and sensitive skin. As a result, hyaluronic acid remains an essential component for achieving a hydrated, supple, and glowing complexion.

Cacay Oil: Packed with an impressive array of nutrients, including vitamins E, A (retinol), and F (linoleic acid), cacay oil boasts remarkable moisturising, anti-aging, and regenerative properties. Its high vitamin E content provides potent antioxidant protection, shielding the skin from environmental and free radical damage, while vitamin A stimulates cell turnover, promoting collagen production and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Additionally, the presence of vitamin F helps maintain the skin’s natural barrier function, ensuring optimal hydration and moisture retention. Regular use of cacay oil can result in a smoother, firmer skin, with improved elasticity and a fresh glow, bolstering it as a vital inclusion in our Age Reversal Serum.

Acetyl Zingerone: A derivative of ginger, acetyl zingerone offers a range of benefits for skin health and appearance. We include this super antioxidant in our Protect Serum due to its abundant anti-inflammatory properties that shields skin form every-day stressors in the environment, preventing premature aging and promoting a younger-looking skin. Acetyl zingerone also exhibits anti-inflammatory effects, soothing irritation and redness, calming sensitive skin and has been shown to inhibit melanin production, making it effective in reducing the appearance of dark spots.

Ascorbyl Glucoside: Celebrated for its array of skincare advantages, ascorbyl glucoside stands as a stable form of vitamin C. As a powerful antioxidant, it helps protect the skin from environmental aggressors as well as promoting collagen synthesis, leading to improved skin elasticity, firmness and combating premature aging. However, it’s the brightening properties of ascorbyl glucoside that earns its place in our Glow Serum, aiding in diminishing dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone, unveiling a more luminous complexion. Furthermore, its anti-inflammatory attributes, make it effective in soothing irritation and redness. With these multifaceted benefits, ascorbyl glucoside is a versatile ingredient that can address a variety of skincare concerns, leaving skin looking healthy, vibrant, and rejuvenated.

Rosehip Oil: Its rosehip oils high concentration of vitamins A and C, deeply nourishes and rejuvenates the skin, that complements cacay oil perfectly in our Age Reversal Serum. Vitamin A aids in cell regeneration, helping to fade scars, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation, while vitamin C promotes collagen synthesis, resulting in firmer, more youthful-looking skin. Additionally, the antioxidant properties and essential fatty acids found in rosehip oil protects the skin from free radical damage, preventing premature aging and promoting a radiant complexion, positioning it as one of the most coveted ingredients in anti-aging skincare. With its lightweight texture and non-comedogenic properties, rosehip oil also absorbs quickly into the skin, leaving it soft, supple.
