L'oligo 5 [Oligo 5 Trace Mineral Spray]
We all lose minerals as we age or live in stressful environmental conditions. Certain minerals are needed to hold hydration in the skin. Without them, creams won't help. Skin can't be properly hydrated without a sufficient mineral delivery such as PHYTO5's proprietary 100% natural origin mineral delivery. It contains the following trace minerals which are able to penetrate the skin's layers and help establish skin that is receptive to moisturization:
- Manganese for vitamin B synthesis; protects the skin against free radicals; soothing and calming properties;
- Cobalt necessary for hemoglobin, it's a great antioxidant;
- Zinc stimulates synthesis of collagen and elastin–so necessary for youthful skin; great as an anti-inflammatory and skin revitalizer;
- Magnesium relaxes muscles and helps smooth wrinkles with a botox-like activity; it acts on cell renewal and energy-production within cells; it also helps to bind calcium which improves skin hydration;
- Copper is an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant with anti-aging properties because it stimulates production of keratin, collagen and elastin which make skin look toned and youthful.
