Uniquely created by extensive research on the intricate composition of our skin, Unseasonal Kind works to replenish the essential antioxidants in our skin surface lipids. Mimicking our skin's natural chemistry that makes a healthy and revitalized complexion.
Key ingredients and formula details
Squalane: Seemingly weightless to the touch, this biomimetic cell-communicating, skin-identical lipid works as a skin-replenishing antioxidant to help support barrier function and restore suppleness and flexibility.
Extracted from olives, squalane is a shelf-stable and sustainable plant-derived material. Human sebum contains 13% squalane making it an essential component of skin surface lipids which offers excellent skin compatibility and the optimal delivery vehicle for oil-soluble vitamin C and Coq10. Our plant-based squalane is sustainably extracted from olives and is non-comedogenic.
Coq10: A plant-derived, nano-sized liposomal vitamin-like molecule that is naturally found in all living cells.
Coq10 or ubiquinone is one of three antioxidants found in the skin surface lipids. This potent lipid-soluble antioxidant is vital to energy production and provides foundational skin health support. In addition, it visibly improves environmentally distressed skin, making it look fresher, younger, and even-toned; our bodies manufacture Coq10, but it declines with time and exposure.
We paired Coq10, vitamin E, and squalane all together to maintain cellular activity, enhance penetration, and maximize potency for maximum benefit.
Vitamin E: First, Vitamin E effectively revitalizes our skin because it's the third anti-oxidant found in skin surface lipids. Second, we used two forms of Vitamin E (water-soluble and fat-soluble) both forms of Vitamin E work in synergist to help prevent skin degradation by replenishing antioxidant deficient skin and to defend your skin against free radicals and premature damage.
Vitamin E is a potent antioxidant, humectant, and skin-identical emollient that improves moisture retention by enhancing skins ceramide production. It also plays a crucial role in forming the stratum corneum barrier and collagen production making it necessary for healthy skin.
-Helps reduce the signs of premature aging via eight fat-soluble chemical compounds.
-Increases the effectiveness of SPF helps mitigate premature aging due to sun exposure.
-Beta-tocopherol creates a more resilient complexion.
Vitamin C: Unseasonal Kind is an oil-based treatment that utilizes a Vitamin C derivative called Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate. We specifically chose THD because it provides optimal product compatibility and is biologically available to the skin.
In addition, to being a potent antioxidant, THD is also known to help stimulate and protect collagen. Furthermore, it works to neutralize free radicals that damage skin lipids, like ceramides and cholesterol.
It effectively provides all the incredible skin benefits of L-Ascorbic Acid without pH obstacles, skin irritation, or disrupting the barrier function; it is the least aggressive and most stable form of cosmetic vitamin C available to date.
Jojoba Oil: Despite its name, jojoba oil is not an oil but rather a liquid wax ester. It is a 'biomimetic' skin-compatible material, as its molecular structure imitates our natural sebum, making it readily accepted by the skin, helping to improve barrier function by decreasing (TEWL) transepidermal water loss.
Jojoba oil possesses robust antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and regenerative properties and is rich in natural ceramides.
It is clinically shown to help reduce skin inflammation and help promote wound healing. In addition, it has excellent moisturizing abilities non-greasy, and is well suited to all skin types, conditions, and ethnicities.
Raspberry Seed Oil: Containing 85% essential fatty acids, rich source ellagitannins, one of the most potent classes of antioxidants which help to protect skin from environmental assailants, stress, free radicals, and lipid support.
Strawberry Seed Oil: Extracted from the tiny seeds in the berry. Strawberry seed oil is a highly stable, readily absorbed, antioxidant-rich oil with an impressive lipid profile of Alpha-Linolenic Acid, an Omega-3 essential fatty acid. It helps prevent collagen breakdown and promotes new collagen production to improve skin elasticity, making it ideal for demanding skin with early signs of degradation.
Meadowfoam Seed Oil: Meadowfoam is a highly regenerative and sustainable plant material. This exquisite oil contains a unique EFA profile of 97% of the essential fatty acids is composed of long chains of 20+ carbon atoms for impeccable molecular stability. Our meadowfoam seed oil is locally grown, harvested, and extracted in Washington State.
Carrot Seed Oil: Wild carrot seed oil is a concentrated, reparative, and potent nutritive oil; brimming with antioxidants, carotenes, vitamins E and A precursors beta-carotene. In addition, it improves the skin's ability to recover from inflammation and irritation caused by the strain of UV radiation and environmental stress. Our carrot seed oil is extracted from dried seeds of the wild carrot plant. It is abundant in the compound Carotol, which encourages skin rejuvenation and supports its defense system.
Rosehip Seed Oil: Truly a gift from nature, the organic rosehip seed is a proven, well-aging, and brightening seed oil brimming with vitamins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids. Capable of penetrating deep into the dermal layers, it helps restore elasticity, stimulate collagen production, brightens dull skin while diligently smoothing and fading the appearance of uneven skin tone. Our rosehip seed oil is organically grown, harvested, and extracted from rose bushes in Chile.
Grapeseed oil: Grapeseed is light and non-aromatic oil that is rapidly absorbed on contact and helps to improve skin elasticity and suppleness by increasing the effectiveness of Vitamin E and C in your skin. In addition, grapeseed helps to even out skin tone with the powerful antioxidant proanthocyanidin. Finally, it may assist with the reduction of skin breakouts due to its solid astringent and antimicrobial properties.
Geranium: Geranium may help stimulate regeneration of new skin cells, while astringent properties help tighten skin, diminishing the appearance of fine lines. Geranium is also antibacterial and helps reduce inflammation.
