Acure Argan Oil CoQ10 shampoo
Finding a natural shampoo that actually works is one of the hardest things to track down, but with the Acure Moroccan Argan Oil CoQ10 Shampoo your search is over! This intensive repair shampoo uses Organic Argan Oil, CoQ10, and Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil to make up Acure's one of a kind 'patent-pending 'Triple Moisture System'. But the real star ingredient here is the Argan Stem Cells.
Because of the high potency of the Argan plant stem cells, they deliver effective, impactful results in the hair at a cellular level. In fact, the Argan stem cell is the only clinically proven plant stem cell to actually "penetrate into the interfollicular layers of the skin and hair to support collagen and elastin, regenerate the cell and boost moisture." in a recent consumer use study, 96% reported increased hydration, shine and body. Who wouldn't want those kind of results! For more information on stem cells and their clinical data to support their contribution and efficacy, you can read our interview with the Acure founder here.

Mukti Organics Age Defiance Eye Serum
Another cult Aussie brand, Mukti Organics have harnessed the advances in green science to create an effective, proven age-defying range. In their Age Defiance Eye Serum and Age Defiance Night Serum they have used a combination of clinically tested active ingredients, the most potent being a peptide known as Argireline. This peptide has been proven to reduce the appearance of existing wrinkles. It is also effective against the development of wrinkles by preventing muscle contraction via muscular relaxation, to tighten the skin. Their clinical studies* of 2 times a day treatment resulted with the severity of the wrinkles around the eyes decreasing up to 17% in 15 days and 27% in 30 days of treatment. Sea Buckhorn was also tested and showed that it can improve the skin's metabolism and retard skin maturation. How's that for amazing results!
