Trinity of Youth Skincare’s new BrilliantFx Body Serum ($39.99) contains a high percentage of lactic acid at an effective pH, according to the company. In addition, the product is specially formulated with the herbal ingredient arnica montana, commonly known as wolf’s bane or leopard’s bane, a European flowering plant containing an active secondary plant metabolite sesquiterpene lactones, which acts as an anti-inflammatory agent. Flavanoids and essential oils theoretically act with the sesquiterpene lactones in Arnica montana to induce its therapeutic effects. The third distinctive key ingredient in the BrilliantFx Body Serum is vitamin E.
According to the company, BrilliantFx Body Serum is the first exfoliating and moisturizing body serum to introduce a skin-healing mixture of ingredients all in one bottle—lactic acid, Arnica montana, and vitamin E.
“It’s not always about discovering new manufactured ingredients or science heavy technology,” says Diane Zokle, co-founder of Trinity of Youth Skincare.“Time-tested ingredients tend to exceed expectations. For instance, it is said that queen Cleopatra of Egypt bathed in spoiled milk, naturally derived lactic acid, to preserve her beauty. The key to making these ingredients work optimally without irritation is using them in the recommended percentage by volume, at the right pH.An ingredient like lactic acid can be a very effective anti-aging agent and moisturizer if it is used in the right volume in a mixture.Because lactic acid has a lower pH than glycolic, its sister acid, it is highly tolerable for most of the population.”
