Based on angelica, an herb known for its protective qualities, the ingredient targets skin's respiration, nutrition and communication cellular functions to provide the following effects:

  • Increases collagen and elastin levels to keep skin firm and supple;
  • Enhances cell energy, balance and well-being via an improved nutrient supply, better intercellular communication and respiration; and
  • Decreases oxidative stress and the formation of free radicals caused by pollution and environmental stressors.

The preservative-free ingredient can also reportedly decrease wrinkle size: Total area of wrinkles decreased by 16% after 28 days of treatment in the company's clinical study.

Optimum Life Angelica launched at in-cosmetics Global, held in Paris April 2-4, 2019.
