Labrador Tea, a Lise Watier exclusive ingredient, is infused in some of our most powerful anti-aging formulas. An extremely potent antioxidant, it combats free radicals caused by pollution and UV rays, all while reducing the visible signs of aging.
Labrador Tea has exceptional antioxidant properties. To demonstrate this, researchers at the Université du Québec à Chicoutimi compared the antioxidant power of cosmetic ingredients using their ORAC index (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity). Labrador Tea proved to be 20 times more potent than idebenone (an analogue of coenzyme Q10) and 3 times more active than Vitamin C and grape seed extract1.
¹ The most powerful antioxidant compared to vitamins C and E, grape seed extract and idebenone. Analysis report: «Determination of antioxidant index to compare different extracts and compounds from the ORAC method and a cellbased assay using human skin fibroblasts. » (ORAC: Worldwide recognized scientific method of analysis).
