UNA skincare marine bioactive ultra rich eye cream is the latest addition to UNA skincare‘s line of products. The eye cream is designed and developed to aid in the maintenance of the skin around the eyes. Among its carefully selected and effective constituents are bioactive ingredients which are extracted from Fucus vesiculosus harvested on the clean shores of Iceland.
The skin around the eyes is very thin and becomes even thinner as we age. Consequently it is more sensitive than skin elsewhere. With age and external irritants such as sunlight and pollution the constructive makeup of the skin becomes weaker and the production of fundamental elements necessary for the maintenance of the skin is reduced. In turn the skin becomes less elastic and fine lines emerge that may develop into wrinkles. Constriction and congestion of blood vessels around the eye may also cause decreased blood flow resulting in further damage to the skin.
The reduction in oxygen flow around the skin cells is aggravated by oxidation, harmful stimuli by certain enzymes, and other elements causing inflammation, thus breaking down the supporting layer of the skin. The results are puffiness and sagging under and around the eyes, the skin becomes darker and fine lines or wrinkles appear.
Size 15 ml., airless container with pump. Suitable for all skin types and under make-up.

Fucus Vesiculosus Extract: Is filled with active ingredients, such as free radical fighting phlorotannin antioxidants, bioactive polysaccharides, amino acids, vitamins and minerals, the extract fights damaging free radicals and skin aging, reduces inflammation, helps to improve skin elasticity and provides hydration to the skin. The extract is produced by Marinox.
Palmitoyl Tripeptide-38: Is one of the most powerful peptides for reducing fine lines and wrinkles in the area around the eyes. Scientific testing confirms that this peptide significantly increases production of six important building materials of the skin: Collagen type I, III, and IV, Fibronectin, Laminin 5 and Hyaluronic Acid. The results, confirmed by clinical testing, are that the peptide significantly reduces wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes.
Hydrolyzed Rice Protein, Glycine Soja Protein, Superoxide Dismutase: This particular blend of ingredients has been proven by clinical testing to work especially well against free radicals released by ultra-violet rays irritating the skin. These ingredients also stimulate the production of fibroblast skin cells which produce the vital building materials of skin, including collagen. They also increase blood flow and clinical testing has shown significant lightening of dark circles and reduction of puffiness around eyes.
Squalane: A fat substance natural to human skin derived from olives. The levels of squalane in human skin are highest between the ages of 20-30, but deteriorate quickly soon after that. Daily appliance of the substance to the skin around the eyes can slow down skin aging, minimize age spots and reduce the negative effects of sun exposure.
Sodium Hyaluronate : Also known as hyaluronic acid, is a natural component of the skin which is depleted as we age. Hyaluronic acid is an outstanding humectant that can hold up to thousand times its weight in water giving it superior moisturizing properties. Hyaluronic acid can also support the formation and maintenance of collagen, one of the most important building blocks of the skin.
Tocopherol: More widely recognized as vitamin E, tocopherol is a multifunctional antioxidant. It works to support the even more powerful antioxidants in the extract in the fight against the free radicals causing damage to the skin around the eyes. Tocopherol is a softening agent and prevents the skin from losing moisture and natural fat. It also prevents damage from sun exposure to the skins outer layers.
Vegetable Glycerin*: An excellent humectant attracting moisture into the skin, keeping it moisturized and nourished. Certified organic.
Simmondsia chinensis seed Oil* (Jojoba Oil): Produced from the Jojoba desert plant. Jojoba oil makes the skin silky smooth, is suitable for very sensitive skin and known to fight some common types of exema and psoriasis. Certified organic.
Olea europaea fruit Oil* (Olive Oil): Produced from top-quality olives and naturally rich in vitamins A and E, as well as the powerful hydroxytyrosol, which has anti-inflammatory effects and is free radical fighting. The olive oil can penetrate the skin, prevent loss of moisture and give a silky smooth softness. Certified organic.
Aloe barbadensis Leaf Juice* Helps the skin to naturally regain moisture and nourishes, heals and soothes stressed skin. Certified organic.
