What Puts The Wow in Kinvara Skincare Eye Wow!?
Natural plant extracts contain so much more than a single ingredient
with most being composed of vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, trace
elements and other beneficial micronutrients. At Kinvara Skincare we
work with this complexity to ensure nature’s best win out over synthetic
ingredients every time.
Baobab a natural polysaccharide gel highly
concentrated in fruit acids (good for skin cell renewal) and polyoses
(namely xylose and other Natural Moisturising Factors (NMF). Its lifting
and moisturising effect is explained by the synergistic action of Alpha
Hydroxy Acids (AHA) and the polyoses in reducing TransEpidermal Water
Loss (TEWL) while increasing water retention and cell turnover. The
extract is designed as an instant anti-wrinkle agent, tightening and
firming skin, resulting in smoother more moisturised skin.
Cedarwood rich in antioxidants which help to
counteract oxidative stress and inflammation, with a decongestant
action. Reduces blue tone under eye colour helping to make eyes look
brighter, fresh and energized.
Cucumber extract rich in Vitamin A & C has a cooling calming effect reducing puffiness.
Fig extract is a polysaccharide gel containing
enzymes and AHA malic acid, helps limit TEWL, while increasing hydration
with resulting improvements in skin softness.
Green Coffee oil extract, rich with antioxidants,
namely Vitamin E, squalene and linoleic acid which fights free radical
environmental damage and plumps the skin.
Horse Chestnut boosts the condition of the skin by
improving the circulation in the dermis layer of the skin which helps
reduce oedema (puffiness).
Hyaluronic acid the naturally occurring High
Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid, has an amazing ability to retain water
giving the skin volume and plumpness, minimising the appearance of
wrinkles and folds, often common in eye area.

protective, rich in Essential Fatty Acids (EFA). Pumpkin excellent
source of tocopherol Vitamin E in all its forms as well as essential
Rosehip – Vitamin rich with D & E and among the
richest sources of C and A (i.e. retinoic acid a precursor to vitamin
A). Also high in the anti-oxidant 'lycopene' and EFAs especially omega
3. Increases cell regeneration, boosts collagen and elasticity, thereby
helping to minimise the signs of ageing and rejuvenate damaged skin. Can
