We are exposed to lots of free radicals on a daily basis; externally as well as internally. Is only fair we incorporate some agents to counter-act them.

The ability for the Hibiscus extract to increase skin elasticity is the reason why it is famously known as the ‘botox’ plant.

This extract is often included in serums that claims to boost youth and radiance of the user. Hibiscus helps cell turnover hence allowing for the disappearance of scar and helps even out the skin tone. Hibiscus is rich in antioxidants, called anthocyanocides. Not only do anthocyanocides protect against free radical damage, they also have slightly astringent properties, aiding in shrinking the pores to produce a smoother looking complexion.
