Main Active Ingredients

 

Made with 96% Natural Ingredients, 82% certified Organic Ingredients, 100% Cruelty Free - not tested on animals, Vegan, Suitable for all skin types, Dermatologically Tested, Unisex 

Condensed formulas – no fillers‚ no water +

Our products are condensed‚ nutrient dense formulations without the use of fillers‚ eg. plain water and dimethicone. In lieu of water‚ we use our signature organic raspberry water. Benefits: The raspberry plant is known to have plentiful medicinal properties. Raspberries are rich in anthocyanosides, providing high antioxidant levels to help fight cells ageing. The leaves have been used since ancient times as a skin softener. They can contain up to 10% tannins as well as several organic acids, flavonoids and vitamin C. The fruit contains polyphenols (anthocyannins) and vitamin C but also vitamins B1 and B2, provitamin-A and various trace elements.

Gemmotherapy - an advanced branch of Phytotherapy +

This new technology uses the embryological tissues of plants to enhance and facilitate tissue regeneration. Gemmotherapy remedies are unique‚ young shoots and buds are used‚ as they contain the peak life essence of the plant. Benefits: These embryological tissues are richer in vitamins‚ oligo-elements‚ minerals‚ nucleic acids and growth hormones than other plant tissues. Additionally‚ Gemmotherapy extracts contains other active substances (such as gibberelins and auxins) that are lost if a plant is allowed to reach a later stage in its growth cycle before harvesting. These fresh‚ embryonic tissues are harvested in their most active phase of the growth cycle‚ to ensure the highest concentration of biologically active substances. We pride ourselves on being pioneers who lead the way in harnessing this new‚ natural technology. We use the bud extract of Safflower (Carthamus Tinctorius) throughout our products. The extract contains proline‚ an amino-acid and a precursor of pro-collagen synthesis‚ high content of alpha-tocopherol‚ a well known antioxidant and 8’-hydroxyarctigenin which is a lignan (growth hormone) found in certain plants which possess a cell proliferative and differentiation activities‚ as well as antioxidant properties. 

SIGNATURE 3 VITAMIN THERAPY COMPLEX

ECM Advanced Repair Eye Lift formula contain a concentrated blend of Vit B5‚ B3 and E with proven synergistic relationships. Research shows that when applied topically‚ several vitamins inclusive of B & E are all very effective for targeting the signs of aging inclusive of hyperpigmentation‚ sagging as well as wrinkles. The molecules of these vitamins are small enough to penetrate the skin’s layers and work their reparative efforts‚ improving cell regeneration as well as helping to repair prior skin damage.

Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide) +

A known cell communicator‚ it is critical for cellular energy production and protection against stress and DNA damage. Helps diminish fine lines and wrinkles while improving skin’s elasticity‚ fighting free-radical damage‚ and evening skin tone and texture.

Vitamin B5 / D-panthenol (Pantothenic Acid) + 

Pantothenic acid is converted to vitamin B5 in the body. Pantothenic acid is present in all living cells and acts as an essential nutritional component due to its role in the formation of acetyl-co-enzyme A in the early stages of metabolism. Enhances skin barrier repair and reduces inflammation. Stimulates the proliferation of dermal fibroblasts and can accelerate cell turnover. Stimulates wound healing. Anti-inflammatory & anti-aging benefits. It’s a penetrating moisturizer.

Vitamin E (Tocopherol) +

One of the most well-known and researched antioxidants, vitamin E occurs naturally in human skin, but can become depleted due to environmental exposure. Vitamin E is well know for reducing the formation of free radicals from exposure to UV rays, promoting the healing process, strengthening the skin's barrier function, protecting the skin barrier's lipid balance, and reducing transepidermal water loss. We use non synthetic, plant extracted natural version of vitamin E. The body synthesizes natural Vitamin E better than synthetic versions. Out of all members of the vitamin E group, tocopherol is the most bioavailable, and thus the most readily absorbed by the body.

DELICATE EYE AREA TREATING ACTIVES

Caffeine +

Caffeine naturally occurs in over 60 plant species. It can penetrate skin and has a constricting effect, which can help improve the look of redness, reduce puffiness and dark circles. Because of the circulation enhancement it is also well known for its ability to reduce water retention.

Euphrasia Officinalis (Eyebright) Extract +

The use of this extract to cure eye irritations dates back to the Middle Ages (11th century). It has antibacterial, astringent and anti-inflammatory properties that account for its usefulness as a topical treatment for under-eye puffiness and dark circles. It counteracts inflammation thanks to its high levels of iridoid glycosides, flavonoids, and tannins giving rapid relief from redness and swelling.

Spilanthes Acmella Flower Extract +

Spilanthes Acmella Flower Extract known as botanical botox, it is a natural anti-aging active for a firm and smooth skin. Renowned for high content of alkylamides‚ boosts cellular dynamism by stimulating fibroblast (rejuvenating cells) biomechanical function‚ which in turn reorganises & tightens the collagen fibre network. This reinforces the architecture of the dermis‚ enhances density of the skin and firmness.

Vitis Vinifera Seed (Grapeseed) Oil + 

An oil with a high content of omega 6 (Linoleic Acid), it also contains a large amount of antioxidants, which helps blood circulation and to eliminate free radicals. The oil provides antioxidant, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It is also an excellent driving vehicle for other ingredients since it has excellent skin penetration qualities. Vitis Vinifera has been traditionally used as a wound healer and anti-inflammatory, dating back to European folk healers.

Borago Officinalis (Starflower) oil +

Easily absorbed and rich in natural vitamins and six essential fatty acids (incl. Omega 3, 6 & 9). Borage oil has an exceptionally high content of Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) which helps combat skin dryness, loss of suppleness and wrinkling. GLA is needed by the body to make prostaglandins which are an essential part of the repair and maintenance action of the body, also involved in counteracting inflammation. With good levels of GLA, the skin is more tolerant to sunlight on a daily basis and the skin heals quicker.

Peptides (palmitoyl tripeptide-1 and a palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7) + 

Peptides are active molecules that send signals to the cells to specifically target and stimulate collagen synthesis and to repair damage. Peptides (a short sequence of amino acids) create a small mollecule called matrikine that are in the extracellular matrix (ECM) - the support structure that surrounds cells. We use palmitoyl tripeptide-1 and a palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7, which work synergistically to mimic the appearance of broken down collagen, causing the skin to react by producing more collagen, as well as elastin.

KEY MOISTURIZING ACTIVES

Opuntia Ficus-Indica (Prickly Pear) Seed Oil (organic) 

A powerful moisturiser, improves skin’s elasticity. High content of naturally occurring tocopherol (vitamin E), give it superb antioxidant properties. Contains considerable nutritional value, prickly pear seeds are a good source of several minerals, including calcium, potassium, magnesium and phosphorus. The fatty acids in prickly pear seed include a high content (up to 61%) linoleic acid (Omega 6) - an essential fatty acid, which soothes and refreshes the skin - and up to 25% oleic acid (Omega 9). Prickly Pear Seed Oil improves hydration as it works as both an emollient and an occlusive (helps to stop Trans-Epidermal Water Loss) and in so doing, helps to slow down the destruction of the connective tissue and in turn helping to prevent wrinkling. The Berber women have for centuries used this oil as a secret beauty regime. As seeds contain less than 5% oil, it takes a remarkable 10, 000 seeds to produce 1 litre of oil. Seeds are dried in the sun after being taken from the fruit - after they are dried, the oil is extracted by cold pressing.

Squalane +

Squalane is naturaly present in the skin's lipid barrier. Its exceptional moisturising properties and ability to penetrate the skin, improve skin elasticity and reinforce skin barrier, thus reducing appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. We use ECOCERT approved squalane derived from plant suggar. Sodium Hyaluronate Sodium hyaluronate is the salt of hyaluronic acid and it has a much lower molecular size. This gives it the ability to penetrate skin when applied topically. One key feature of sodium hyaluronate is its ability to hold more than 1000 times its weight in water!

Sodium hyaluronate +

Sodium hyaluronate is a glycosaminoglycan found in various connective tissues and skin. It is water-binding, has the ability to fill the spaces between the connective fibers known as collagen and elastin.

Glycerin +

Glycerin is a natural component of healthy skin and is present in all natural lipids (fats). It plays a key role in maintaining skin’s moisture balance, keeping it feeling smooth and supple.

    Science

    Every active ingredient has been specifically selected to support‚ stimulate‚ boost & prevent:

    ECM (Extra Cellular Matrix) +

    The dermis is a connective tissue composed of fibroblasts that produce proteins (mainly collagen and elastin)‚ which are deposited in the extra-cellular matrix (ECM).

    Fibroblasts play a key role in the dermis architecture‚ as they organize a supporting network that brings firmness and elasticity to the skin.

    As the skin ages‚ it loses both elasticity and firmness. Cell turnover slows down and collagen production decreases. The dermis structure is disorganized‚ resulting in skin slackening and an accentuation of wrinkles.

    To prevent sagging and combat the signs of aging‚ it is essential to reinforce the dermis structure‚ by targeting the cellular dynamism, cellular communication and stimulating fibroblast biomechanical functions.

    Cellular Dynamism +

    All living cells are dynamic and integrate a wide variety of biochemical and mechanical information‚ continuously adapting and responding to their environment.

    Signals transmitted by hormones‚ growth factors, neighboring cells or the ECM are sensed by cells and can trigger rapid changes in metabolism‚ gene expression‚ cell shape‚ dynamics and behavior.

    The ECM regulates cell’s dynamic behavior and facilitates the surrounding cells to repair and heal tissue.

    The ECM is composed of structural proteins (collagen‚ elastin) and glycosaminoglycans.

    At ALBIVA we stimulate cellular dynamism with the following active ingredients:

    Spilanthes Acmella Extract

    Renowned for high content of alkylamides‚ boosts cellular dynamism by stimulating fibroblast biomechanical function‚ which in turn reorganises & tightens the collagen fiber network. This reinforces the architecture of the dermis‚ enhances density of the skin and firmness.

    Evodia Rutaecarpa Fruit Extract (Wu Zhu Yu)

    Stimulates extracellular release of citric oxide which dilates blood vessels‚ thus improves micro-circulation and as a result‚ illuminates & brightens skin.

    Alaria Esculenta Extract (Brown Algae)

    Stimulates Collagen III synthesis and Matricial & Peri-Membranar Proteoglycans synthesis, both resulting in firming effect.

    Gemmotherapy - Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Bud Extract

    The extract contains proline‚ an amino-acid and a precursor of pro-collagen synthesis‚ high content of alpha-tocopherol‚ a well known antioxidant and 8’-hydroxyarctigenin which is a lignan found in certain plants which possess cell proliferative and differentiation activities‚ as well as antioxidant properties.

    Cellular Communication +

    One of the ECM many functions‚ is regulating intercellular communication.

    At ALBIVA we stimulate cellular communication with the following active ingredients:

    Alaria Esculenta Extract (Brown Algae)

    Maintains cell communication at epidermic level by activating connexions 43 for an optimum keratogenesis, regeneration of epidermic tissue.

    Vitamin B3

    A known cell communicator‚ it is critical for cellular energy production and protection against stress and DNA damage. Helps diminish fine lines and wrinkles while improving skin’s elasticity‚ fighting free-radical damage‚ and evening skin tone and texture.

    Cylindrotheca Fusiformis Extract (Oceanic Marine Algae)

    A powerful anti wrinkle active‚ stimulates production of structural skin proteins. It is highly concentrated in carotenoids‚ essential fatty acids and sterols.

    Transdermal Absorption +

    • Low Molecular Weight (eg. hyaluronic acid‚ vitamin complex)
    • Skin Penetration Enhancers (fatty acids‚ ceramides)

    Transepidermal Water Loss +

    • Humectants (attract & hold water e.g. glycerol‚ hyaluronic acid, allantoin, vitamin B5)
    • Occlusives (lock in moisture e.g. squalane‚ prickly pear oil‚ jojoba oil)
    • Emmolients (soften and soothe skin, eg. Perilla Ocymoides Seed Oi)

    This activates skin’s natural ability to repair itself and boost the natural process of restoring collagen and elastin resulting in healthy‚ youthful and firm skin.

    Synergy 

    At ALBIVA we don't base our products on any one or two active ingredients‚ rather explore an inter-relationship of various actives in a way to maximise their therapeutic benefits and provide varied nourishment to the cells as a whole.

    Sophisticated and advanced complexes of ingredients are created drawing on the synergistic relationship between various components.

    Examples of synergistic relationships in our products:

    Vitamin Therapy +

    Our formulas contain a concentrated blend of Vit B5‚ B3‚ C‚ A and E with proven synergistic relationships.

    Research shows that when applied topically‚ several vitamins inclusive of A‚ B‚ C & E‚ are all very effective for targeting the signs of aging inclusive of hyperpigmentation‚ sagging as well as wrinkles.

    The molecules of these vitamins are small enough to penetrate the skin’s layers and work their reparative efforts‚ improving cell regeneration as well as helping to repair prior skin damage.

    Botanical Super-Complexes +

    We use a concentrated complex of 7 Swiss Alpine plant extracts in our brightening serum (Mallow‚ Peppermint‚ Cowslip‚ Lady’s Mantle‚ Speedwell‚ Melissa and Yarrow) that work in synergy to brighten and even the skin and reduce the colour intensity of age spots.

    Peptides +

    Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1 and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 work synergistically to stimulate the synthesis of the key constituents of the skin matrix—collagen‚ elastin and glycosaminoglycans.

    Miliaceum Seed Extract & Tannic Acid +

    This combination improves skin structure by reducing wrinkles and lines‚ as well as a generally younger appearance. The new production of collagen and glycosaminoglycans is accelerated. The skin profile is improved from within. Tannins are extracted from oak and are well known to be skin tightening.

    Technology & Sustainability

    Airless Technology

    Airless Technology protects our delicate formulations from air and light degradation and contamination. - No Back flow - the new technology eliminates back flow problem‚ which happens when air flows back to the bottle after pumping. - No waste - our airless bottles have no dip tube but a diaphragm that rises to evacuate the product, creating a vacuum effect‚ drawing the product upwards. Over 99% of product can be used. - Fully recyclable - no metal parts‚ which means our airless bottles are fully recyclable. 

    Cold Processing 

    High heat during standard production process degrades many precious active ingredients such as vitamins‚ peptides‚ oils and antioxidants. Our active ingredients are added to the formulations using cold processing technology to ensure all ingredients retain maximum effectiveness.

    Sustainability

    Sustainability‚ waste reduction‚ reducing carbon footprint and taking care of the Earth is at the heart of what we do and we choose to work with companies sharing our quality standards and ethos. We believe it is our responsibility to cherish what remains of our nature and foster its renewal‚ and in the process be the best we can be.

    Examples of our focus on sustainability:

    Perilla Ocymoides Seed Oil (Organic) +

    Our oil comes from China and is obtained by cold pressing the seed of the Perilla plant. Once pressed the remaining seed cake is used as animal or bird feed.

    Evodia Rutaecarpa Fruit Extract (Wu Zhu Yu) +

    The fruit is grown in a very specific area of China. The ethical policy of the manufacturer confirms that no slave labour or child labour is used and there is no gender discrimination‚ which is great news for women's rights in China.

    Cylindrotheca Fusiformis Extract (oceanic marine algae) +

    Because of the risk of pollution in the sea‚ our producer grows the micro algae in a purpose built eco facility located in Italy. This not only guarantees purity of the algae but also means that the eco balance of the oceans are not disturbed by uncontrolled harvesting. The algae give off gases that are harvested to heat the facility and it is powered by solar panels to give a low carbon footprint. 

    Gemmotherapy - bud extract of Safflower (Carthamus Tinctorius) +

    When isolating plant cultures‚ we encounter problems dealing with environmental aggressors such as soil contaminants that alter plant metabolism‚ water pollution‚ air pollution etc. To isolate the most effective active ingredients that are pollution free‚ our producer uses a special facility to cultivate plants under controlled environment. Light‚ air‚ temperature‚ nutrients are auto-controlled. In this protected ecosystem‚ it is possible to harvest buds that are pesticide free‚ fresh and rich in nutrients.
