This powerhouse antioxidant has been getting a lot of press lately both as a nutritional supplement and skincare ingredient and has been recommended by famous health experts such as Dr Perricone, Dr Mercola and Dr Oz. It is a relatively new discovery for skincare, but at Derma MD we have been incorporating it for over a decade into our #1 Best Seller Pink Silk Face Firming Rejuvenator!
AstaXanthin is an extremely powerful antioxidant that is essential to anti-aging skincare technology. It is extracted from a type of marine algae called Haematococcus Microalgae that gives salmon and shellfish (like shrimp) their beautiful pink color. Tropical areas such as Hawaii are some of the richest sources of AstaXanthin.
AstaXanthin has been proven to be one of the strongest, anti-inflammatory, antioxidants available. Studies show that AstaXanthin far surpasses the antioxidant benefits of beta-carotene, Vitamin A and Vitamin E combined!
Antioxidants are important in skincare because they can help reduce free radical damage. Free radical damage is known to contribute to premature aging, wrinkles and hyper pigmentation. When you slice an apple in half it will begin to turn brown within minutes. This is called oxidization, or free radical damage in action. Now slice another apple in half and then sprinkle it with some lemon juice (vitamin C). The vitamin C (also a powerful antioxidant) will help prevent oxidization and the apple will stay fresh for much longer. This is antioxidization in action!
According to Wikipedia;
The free-radical theory of aging (FRTA) states that organisms age because cells accumulate free radical damage over time. A free radical is any atom or molecule that has a single unpaired electron in an outer shell. While a few free radicals such as melanin are not chemically reactive, most biologically-relevant free radicals are highly reactive. For most biological structures, free radical damage is closely associated with oxidative damage. Antioxidants are reducing agents, and limit oxidative damage to biological structures by passivating free radicals.
So basically what we are saying here is that:
Antioxidants help prevent free radical damage and premature aging and AstaXanthin is one of the most powerful antioxidants available!

"We have a joke here that Pink Silk is like “crack for your face” because once you try it, it becomes an addiction. The way it makes your skin feel and look is just something you don’t want to do without.”
Pink Silk also makes a wonderful makeup primer, smoothing the skin's surface and creating a lovely canvas to apply makeup to.

"My skin now has a more even colour tone. My cheeks used to be blotchy in colour and they always felt bumpy/rough. My skin felt much smoother immediately after the 1st use [Pink Silk]. I was amazed! No other product had this effect! I love all the Derma MD products I've tried, but it became a bit too expensive for me after we bought a house, had a baby, etc. However, I'll always budget for my Pink Silk!"
Customers rave about how Pink Silk makes their skin feel!

"I always get complements on my skin when I've been using Pink Silk. The first time I used it my skin immediately felt smooth and less irritated. I went without it for a while and missed it so much! Now I make sure I always have some on hand."
