      Alpha Lipoic Acid, also known as the universal antioxidant, is compelling to the skin in its quest for radiance.

Over 1,500 years before the Magi brought frankincense and myrrh to Bethlehem, the ancient Egyptians used Frankincense in their materia medica in over 2,000 prescriptions. One of the oldest known reference to frankincense dates to 1500 BC an Egyptian medical papyrus, which prescribed the use of frankincense for respiratory infections and asthmatic attacks. Frankincense is mentioned numerous times in the old and new testaments. An Islamic philosopher Ibn Sina from the 10th century recommended it for ulcers, fevers, and tumors.

      Organic Aloe Vera is known as “the silent healer” and considered a sacred plant in many cultures. It contains a staggering 18 out of 20 amino acids, which are directly linked to the repair of damaged tissue and cell regeneration. The presence of B-complex vitamins and folic acid contribute to aloe's tremendous abilities in new cell synthesis, along with an impressive mineral content (including significant quantities of calcium, zinc, selenium and magnesium).
