Walnut is rich in flavanoids, flavanols and antioxidants. One of the antioxidants is egallic acid and gallic acid, both of which have been shown to have skin benefits.

Not only targeting the common ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species) but also RNS (Reactive nitrogen species), NO (Nitrous Oxide), ROO (Peroxyl Radical and ONOO (Peroxynitrite anion).

Mangosteen has long been used in Thai traditional medicines for treatment of skin infection and wounds. Mangosteen contains complex phenolic compounds, such as tannins, flavonoids, xanthones, and other bioactive substances supporting its medicinal properties. We use 2 types of Mangosteen in our Skin Detox. We extract from the rind of both mature and young fruit rind as both have different skin benefits. The young fruit rind extract contains significantly higher contents of phenolics and tannins and promotes higher free radical scavenging activity than the mature fruit rind extract. The mature fruit rind contains higher contents of flavonoids and α-mangostin xanthone and is far more effective at killing p.acnes bacteria than the young fruit rind extract. Using both young and mature fruit rind allows us to benefit both the strong antioxidant and pore refining properties, as well as the antibacterial properties and anti-aging benefits as well.
