80% - users report improved skin tone, less inflammation with sea aster
24% - reduction in forehead wrinkle depth with carnosine, milk thistle, vitamin E
28 - days required for Alaria esculenta to increase firmness

We’ve seen this is true for jojoba from the Mojave Desert of California, aloe vera from the desert island of Aruba, deserts of North Africa and southern US and rhodiola from Russia. Other plants also seem to follow this pattern in which harsh upbringing means only those with powerful chemicals survive. Rose hip seed oil, sea aster and sea buckthorn certainly qualify as survivors in difficult terrain. Each is moisture-intensive and anti-aging.

Fabiola Carvajal, MD, of the microbiology department at Concepción University in Santiago, Chile, was responsible for introducing rose hip seed oil to the scientific world when she decided to study the dermatological effects of the pressed exudation on patients with wrinkling, brown spots and dryness as well as scars and wounds from radiation, ulcers and acne. She called the results “superb.”

Now we know the reason that this oil works is it contains 77% essential fatty acids to repair and regenerate skin as well as trans-retinoic acid, a derivative of retinol or vitamin A, its synthetic counterpart, Tretinoin, a topical pharmaceutical drug used to diminish wrinkles. As with Tretinoin, which has been thoroughly researched for over 30 years, rose hip seed oil contains rejuvenation therapeutics. Aubrey, through their connection with Dr Carvajal, became first in the US in 1986 to formulate with rose hip seed oil.

From mountains to seashores, the quest for plants that protect from premature skin aging takes us to the rockiest, windiest reaches. Sea aster, a Northern European shore plant, may

appear delicate but thrives in saline marshes where the harshest winds and waves hit. The plant contains caffeoyl esters, flavonoid glycosides and sinapinic acid, which scavenge damaging free radicals. In a study, sea aster applied topically resulted in noticeable firmness and moisturizing in some 80% of users.

Sea buckthorn, native to the Atlantic coast of Europe, Mongolia and China, has a high concentration of palmitoleic acid, a component of fat used to nourish and moisturize skin. Sea buckthorn’s antioxidant-laden oils quell inflammation and moisturize.

Antioxidative activity of sea buckthorn is due to its vitamin E combination of tocopherols and tocotrienols, vitamin A-related carotenoids (beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, zeaxanthin, lycopene and lutein) and vitamin C.

To give one’s skin full advantage, Aubrey infused three of their skin care lines including cleanser, toners and moisturizer with these and other antioxidants to prevent premature skin aging. Aubrey’s Age-Defying line comes with sea buckthorn; their Calming formulas soothe inflamed skin with sea aster and moisture-grabbing prickly pear; and Revitalizing Therapy with Rosa Mosqueta rose hip seed oil is synergized with a combination of carnosine (an amino acid), vitamin E and milk thistle that has been shown to firm and hydrate the skin, reducing wrinkles and polysaccharide-rich seaweed, which increased skin firmness after only 28 days of use.
