Our Ingredients and their Benefits

Our Ingredients and their Benefits

When choosing beauty and skincare products, it’s important to not only know what’s in your product but to also know their benefits.

Our ingredients are sourced from a variety of locations around the world, with the foundation of our products sourced from living plants. We manufacture all ISUN products in our lab located in the San Juan mountains of Colorado, using cold-processing extraction and blending techniques.

Here is a list of some of our key ingredients along with their benefits:

Beta-Glucan - Derived from oats, beta-glucan stimulates the skin’s natural immune system against bacteria and stimulates the fibroblast cells to produce more collagen and elastin. The result is reduced signs of ageing and skin irritation.   

Buriti Fruit Oil - Produced from a wild fruit grown in the Amazon rainforest, this bright red oil, rich in vitamin C and essential fatty acids, contains the highest known levels of skin-protective carotenoids, which protect the skin against environmental damage.

Blue Algae Peptide - A freshwater algae that stimulate the skin cells to produce ATP (adenosine triphosphate). This increases the production of collagen and elastin with rapid cell renewal for a brighter-looking skin with fewer signs of ageing.

CoQ10 - This antioxidant-enzyme increases the synthesis of DNA, hyaluronic acid and protects the skin from free radical damage, making CoQ10 anti-ageing and hydrating.

Buddleja Extract - An antioxidant plant that protects your skin cells from UV damage and reduces DNA fragmentation. It is also antibacterial and has properties of rapid wound healing.

Edelweiss Extract - This antioxidant alpine plant stimulates key proteins to provide maximum skin barrier integrity and protection against tissue breakdown and loss of moisture. It supports healthier, stronger skin to increase fewer signs of ageing and increased moisturisation, perfect for sensitive skin.

Hyaluronic Acid - This natural component of skin, which is sometimes called sodium hyaluronate, diminishes with age. It maintains hydration and transports nutrients and oxygen into the cells while removing toxins.   

Phytoplankton Enzymes - Marine plankton enzymes called photosomes protect our cellular DNA from UV damage, helping to prevent skin cancers and ageing effects of skin.

Ormus Water - Naturally sourced from our mountain spring, high-energy Ormus atoms accelerates cell communication for a more rapid repair and regeneration of the skin.

Rice Peptides - A plant rich in antioxidants that protects skin cells and existing collagen fibres in skin from damage. It also helps to maintain the skin’s moisture content and elasticity.

Peptide Complex - Derived from purified rice bran protein, soy protein and biotechnologically produced yeast protein, this active complex protects and strengthens delicate tissue around the eyes. This helps to reduce under-eye dark circles, puffiness, wrinkles and saggy tissue.

Stem Cells - Citrus-derived stem cells support skin regeneration, leading to increased collagen, elastin and other connective tissues. The result is firmer, more elastic and thicker skin, with reduced lines, wrinkles and sagging.

Superoxide Dismutase - A powerful antioxidant that is the skin’s first defence against free radicals that damage tissues and DNA. It’s also an excellent safeguard against UV damage.

Ulva Green Algae - A marine algae that create firmer, younger-looking skin with reduced ageing effects, redness and inflammation through increased production of collagen and elastin.

Vitamin C Ester - A highly active vitamin ester that provides antioxidant protection in the skin against cellular DNA damage and harmful effects from UV. It also boosts collagen and helps prevent melanogenesis - skin discolouration.
