Antioxidants reduce free radical activity. Free radicals are active in the breakdown of cells and cause the ripening and decay of fruits and vegetables. Free radicals in the skin actually break down the cell walls of lipids in our skin and causes premature aging and wrinkling. The high levels of antioxidants in natural, organic jojoba, apricot, rosehip seed, sesame oils and essential oils reduce free radical activity and retard the effects of aging and sun damage on the skin.
