Annmarie Probiotic Serum with Tremella – Bio Facial Elixir.
Support your skin’s natural defenses with this concentrated blend of skin-reviving probiotics. Olive leaf extract and astaxanthin work to shield skin from harmful elements with superior antioxidant activity. Tremella, an ancient Chinese beautifying mushroom, is nature’s alternative to hyaluronic acid, immersing skin with deep hydration. Restorative herbs work together with biome-friendly extracts, to bring skin back to a state of balance.
The growing trend of probiotics in skin care is no fad. Researchers have found that much like how our guts need probiotic-rich foods to help restore its health, topical forms of probiotics are needed to maintain and balance the skin’s integral ecosystem.
Probiotics are especially beneficial for sensitive skin, blemish-prone skin and urban dwellers, who are often exposed to toxic environmental pollutants. When live, healthy bacteria is applied topically, the skin’s natural defenses are boosted. Clinical studies have shown that probiotics in skin care:
Naturally calm skin that is reactive to environmental stressors
Strengthen the skin’s lipid barrier, combating dryness
Balance skin pH, restoring a healthy complexion
Improve overall skin hydration, enhancing skin suppleness
Eliminate harmful impurities that disrupt the skin’s defense mechanisms
Reduces the appearance of temporary redness and other skin burdens
Key Ingredient Benefits in Annmarie Probiotic Serum.
This bio-facial elixir is teeming with life. While probiotics are the heart of this skin-reviving serum, we have complimented them with innovative and potent age-defying ingredients. This signature formula is a combination of ancient beautifying botanicals synergized with bio-fermented extracts— welcome to a science-based approach to skin care!
Tremella Mushroom – Tremella, an ancient Chinese mushroom, is the spotlight ingredient of this serum. Tremella is exceptionally hydrating and is considered nature’s alternative to hyaluronic acid, as its rich in polysaccharides and beta-glucans, the compounds that create a supple, firm and plump appearance in the skin.
Annmarie sources their Tremella from a company called Nammex, which uses 100% organic fruiting bodies that are rigorously tested and guaranteed for active compounds. All Nammex extracts are 100% pure mushroom with no added starch, filler, grain or mycelium — yielding a high-quality, beta-glucan-rich extract. According to Jeff Chilton of Nammex, most mushroom products or supplements on the US market do not source their products from actual mushroom, but instead use mycelium grown on grain, which has significantly low beta-glucan content and higher starch content.
Beta-glucans are the juice! They are what the skin needs to combat environmental stress, to increase the look of firmness in aging skin, to reduce the appearance of temporary redness and to allow for intense moisture-binding capability.
Bio-Ferments – Annmarie has incorporated two bio-ferments into this serum: Fermented Olive Leaf Extract and Plankton Extract. But first, what are bio-ferments? Simply put, they are ingredients that are biologically enhanced to increase their nutrient density and ability to absorb more effectively into the skin. The process of fermentation creates phytochemicals, peptides, and antioxidants.
Fermented Olive Leaf Extract specifically produces compounds such as oleuropein, which offers strong protection from environmental stress along with soothing and reviving properties.
Plankton Extract produces sulfur-rich peptides that slow signs of aging resulting in less perceivable fine lines and wrinkles. Like most algae and seaweeds, plankton deeply hydrates the skin, making it an excellent humectant in this formula.
Astaxanthin – This high-performing antioxidant powerhouse is the ultimate skin-saviour. Astaxanthin is sourced from microalgae and shields skin from harmful elements that can lead to deterioration. How powerful is this antioxidant? Some studies have shown that astaxanthin is 65 times more powerful than vitamin C, 54 times more powerful than beta-carotene, and 14 times more powerful than vitamin E! When applied topically, Astaxanthin enhances skin suppleness and firmness, reduces the appearance of brown spots and uneven skin tone and improves overall skin moisture and hydration. Astaxanthin is infused into a base of Tamanu Oil to allow for optimal dispersion.
Herb Infusion – The base of all of Annmarie serums contain a unique aloe vera juice infusion. For this serum, they selected herbs that are native and commonly found in the Pacific Northwest. These salves are beneficial for soothing a variety of skin discomforts. In this aloe-herb infusion, they include leaves of nettle, comfrey, plantain, dandelion, and olive, all of which harness restorative and nourishing properties for the skin.
Annmarie Probiotic Serum with Tremella also includes other nutritive and antioxidant-rich ingredients like avocado oil, superoxide dismutase (SOD), camellia leaf and is finished with a grounding scent of sacred frankincense and vetiver to compliment the earthiness of the entire formula.
Whether you’re a city dweller or someone who is seeking to balance existing skin sensitivities caused by toxins in the environment, this Annmarie Probiotic Serum was created for you!
