These 6 Supercharged Botanicals Help Save Your Skin From Blue Light
We swear that plants and other natural ingredients can fix nearly anything. Fortunately, nature’s got a solution for the latest trigger for prematurely aging skin.
On average, we spend more than 12 hours a day in front of screens—and exposure to the blue light that beams out of everything from our laptops to our smartphones has been proven to age skin silently, but dramatically. Thankfully nature has ways of protecting against visible light exposure, and our latest scientific discoveries were specifically cultivated to safeguard skin from digital aging.
These finds were the catalyst for the brand-new Blue Light Protection Hyaluronic Serum, a botanically-powered shield that taps effective, cutting-edge naturals to hydrate and protect skin as you type, swipe, and scroll. Here’s a little decoder for the key ingredients in this compelling new formula.

This extract is derived from a radiation-resistant microorganism found in a waterfall in the Spanish Pyrenees.

In much the same way, the ingredient helps skin adapt to visible light, minimizing the appearance of brown spots and wrinkles.
Blend of Hyaluronic Acids
These acids of different molecular weights moisturize skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
