Defend Overnight Recovery Cream

with Seaweed & Algae found along coastal Japan

Ancient Japanese believed that the sea had great healing powers, influencing modern Japanese skincare rituals that harness the power of oceanic plants.

Powered by ingredients from the mineral-rich waters of coastal Japan, this creamy night cream is infused with antioxidants, vitamins, & minerals from Seaweed & Brown Algae to fight against damage caused by environmental aggressors. It works during the natural overnight repair process to help replenish dry, damaged skin so you wake up with a refreshed, visibly smoother & more radiant complexion.

Defend Overnight Recovery Cream with seaweed and algae found along coastal Japan

Why it Works

Seaweed acts as a super hydrator and also exfoliates to get rid of dead skin cells and toxins.

Brown Algae helps prevent damage to amino-acids within your skin and provides skin with additional suppleness to maintain greater moisture retention. Brown algae also helps your skin maintain youthful suppleness and bounce.

Aloe Leaf Juice contains organic molecules that act as a detoxifying agent, rejuvenate damaged skin, promote healthy skin.

Antioxidants combat free radicals which accelerate skin aging by attacking healthy skin cells and damaging collagen.

Vitamins help restore your skin’s antioxidant activity, help preserve your skin health, and help prevent the visible signs of skin aging.
