6 Skincare Active Ingredients We Love & Why

We asked CEO & Founder Tricia Trimble what her top Suntegrity Skincare active ingredients were. Here is her list below.

6 Skincare Active Ingredients We Love & Why

Zinc Oxide

This mineral not only protects skin from sunburn and damage from UVA/UVB rays, but it is provides a host of therapeutic benefits including helping to calm acne, rashes and irritation, preventing bacterial infection, and helping to improve synthesis of new skin tissue and collagen. We use this ingredient in all Suntegrity face and body sunscreens.

Aloe Vera (INCI: Aloe Barbadensis (Organic Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice)

Packed with nutrients and antioxidants including, beta carotene, and vitamin C & E that can help improve the skin’s natural firmness and keep the skin hydrated. It’s highly anti-inflammatory so it can help treat burns, acne and dry skin. We use this ingredient in all Suntegrity face and body sunscreen lotions.

Green Tea (INCI: Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract

A rich source of epigallocatechin gallate – one of the most powerful antioxidants available. Epigallocatechin gallate is made of polyphenols that target free radicals, particularly those caused by UV induced skin damage. Green tea extract also contains the methylxanthines that stimulate microcirculation, helping even the tone and health of the skin. It is also a good anti-inflammatory agent, reducing inflammation in the skin and inhibiting the action on collagenase (an enzyme that breaks down collagen leading to a thin and flattened dermis). Green tea helps maintain the level of collagen, leading to a firm and elastic skin. We use this ingredient in all of Suntegrity face and body lotions.

Gotu Kola (INCI: Centella Asiatica (Gotu Kola) Leaf Extract)

Rich in amino acids, beta carotene, fatty acids, and numerous potent phytochemical. Extracts have been found to calm inflammation, speed wound healing, stimulate new cell growth, build collagen, and improve circulation. Gotu kola is also rich in flavonoids with good antioxidant activity, which helps protect from environmental stressors. We use this ingredient in Suntegrity Rebound and Staycation serums.

Turmeric (INCI: Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Extract)

Used extensively in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries, it has a variety of therapeutic properties including antioxidant, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and anti carcinogenic activity. It’s known to help treat skin conditions, improve skin elasticity, reduce wrinkles and treat sunburn. A 2011 study published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology concluded that the “photo-protective properties” of the extract “resulted in improvement in skin properties like skin hydration and sebum content.” We use this ingredient in Suntegrity Rebound and Staycation serums.

Licorice Root (INCI: Glycyrrhiza Uralensis (Licorice) Root Etxract)

Contains the antioxidant glabridin and licochalcone A, both of which have powerful anti-aging and skin-soothing properties. Glabridin has been shown to lessen the effects of sun damage as it disperses melanin and inhibits melanin biosynthesis, which basically means it brightens damaged skin and blocks the enzyme that triggers skin to darken after being damaged by UV radiation. It’s a natural way to treat hyper-pigmentation and it defends your skin against free radicals. It also has anti-inflammatory properties which are great for rosacea and eczema. It also helps regulate the skin’s oil production. We use this ingredient in Suntegrity Rebound and Staycation serums.
