Ingredient Spotlight: Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) for Younger Looking Skin
If you’re a skin and beauty freak, like most women are, you’re always looking for the next breakthrough product or ingredient that will lead you to the fountain of youth. So for the skincare-obsessed, SOD means something disruptive and very much a scientific breakthrough. It means a youthful complexion, or in short, the long-awaited fountain of youth. Short for Superoxide Dismutase, SOD is the first line of defense against free radical damage, meaning it protects your skin against visible signs of aging as it fights off free radicals and the damage they leave behind. Superoxide Dismutase is in our patent pending formula REVIVIFY® Gel Pro-Vitality product.
What exactly is Superoxide Dismutase?
Superoxide Dismutase is the most powerful antioxidant enzyme in the body. It’s crucial to cellular health because it’s the first roadblock that free radicals—unstable atoms that cause premature aging—encounter when they attempt to damage the cell. If free radicals are the car thieves trying to steal your car, SOD is the car alarm that instantly goes off. At the first hint of free radicals, the Superoxide Dismutase alarm sounds and sends the police, or, in this case, free radical-destroying antioxidants.
While the police are on their way, Superoxide Dismutase is working hard fending off free radicals by breaking them down into less destructive molecules. This sets the stage for other antioxidants to finish the elimination process. And if it weren’t for this “SOD” alarm, the other antioxidants in your body wouldn’t come to the rescue nearly as fast. In fact, the entire process of eliminating free radicals would be 10,000x slower, leaving a lot more time for cellular damage.
Why should I add Superoxide Dismutase into my beauty and skincare routine?
Superoxide Dismutase production has been known to significantly decline with age and to top it off, getting older means that free radical formation is at an all-time high. What we’re trying to say here is, we all need a little extra protection—free radicals are always on the loose. Incorporating Superoxide Dismutase into your beauty, health and wellness routine won’t stop the free radicals from trying to steal the car, but it will stop them from taking away smooth, glowing, healthy skin.
By protecting your skin from free radical damage, Superoxide Dismutase prevents visible signs of aging. Even better, it helps repair signs of aging. It does this by promoting a youthful complexion, encouraging resilient skin. It also fights hyperpigmentation, from sun damage, age spots, and acne marks, for an even-toned complexion. It’s anti-inflammatory, too, so it’s very helpful for de-puffing under the eyes
You’ll notice brighter, bouncier, younger-looking skin over time. So for those of you skincare obsessed looking for your anti-aging jackpot product, look no further. Our Gel Formula with SOD is your new fountain of youth.
