Glossary of Terms

Antioxidants
Antioxidants are naturally-occurring compounds that help protect your skin from damage caused by free radicals and environmental stressors like UV and pollution. Antioxidants are often found in skin care product formulas because of their powerful anti-aging benefits.
Bath Salts
Bath salts, which contain a high concentration of minerals, are easily dissolved in warm bath water and offer a whole host of benefits from combating stress and fatigue, to reducing inflammation, soothing infections, and detoxifying your skin.
Carcinogenesis
The process by which normal, healthy cells transform into cancer cells is termed carcinogenesis.
Free Radicals
Free radicals are highly reactive and unstable molecules that are produced in the body during normal cell metabolism, or by exposure to toxins in the environment such as pollution and ultraviolet light. Free radicals can damage our skin cells and collagen production, resulting in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and age spots. Antioxidants can neutralize free radicals, reducing the risk of damage.
Non-Comedogenic
Non-Comedogenic means that a product contains ingredients that won't clog or block the pores on your skin. The term "Comedo" as defined by dermatologists, is a clogged pore in skin.
Saponified
Saponified literally means “turned into soap” from the root word, sapo, which is Latin for soap.
UVB Rays
Also called ultraviolet B radiation, these are invisible rays that are part of the energy that comes from the sun. UVB radiation causes sunburn, darkening and thickening of the outer layer of the skin, and also plays the greatest role in causing melanoma and other types of skin cancer.
