Nature Meets Science.
For centuries, African people have used powerful botanicals as traditional healing elixirs. Terres d’Afrique has studied how people use these relatively unknown ingredients. The curative and restorative power of many African plants is legendary for a reason. They work. In crafting our products, we have combined these ingredients in potent formulations that maximise their skin care benefits; the culmination of years of exploration, field research and laboratory development.
With Kigelia, Baobab & Buchu
Terres d’Afrique Uplifting Serum is a light gel with potent anti-aging properties. Easily absorbed, this serum will lift the skin, leaving it feeling firm and sooth. Suitable for all skin types.
Skin Tightening and Firming
Kigelia extract has proven tightening and firming properties, reducing wrinkles and fine lines.
Fights Free Radicals
Vitamin C, flavonoids, polyphenols and the powerful Super-Oxide-Dismutase are potent anti-oxidants that act as freeradical scavengers, reducing damage caused by oxidation.
Evens Out Skin Tone and Reduces Sunspots
Active compounds in kigelia (quinones, irridoids, coumarines and flavonoids), combined with rooibos leaf extract, Aloe ferox and buchu even out skin tone and reduce sunspots. Buchu has antiseptic properties that prevent bacterial growth, reducing blemishes and blotches.
Prepares for Hydration
Low molecular weight Hyaluronic acid prepares the skin for hydration, allowing active compounds from our hydrating products to penetrate deeper into the skin.
Protects Against UV Damage
UVB damage leads to modification of DNA structure and subsequent alteration of cell functioning and accelerated skin aging.
The UVA induced damage leads to loss of a fragment from the circular DNA of the mitochondria, which may result in a disruption of mitochondria functioning and energy synthesis. This is thought to be a major mechanism by which UVA radiation causes photo-aging of human skin. DNAGETM, a plant extract from the candle tree (Cassia Alata) protects two types of DNA from UV damage: it protects nuclear DNA against UVB and mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) against UVA. Additionally, DNAGETM supports the endogenous repair process of the cells.
This combination of protection and repair allows preventing UV induced skin alterations (clinical demonstration).
