What’s in a nut? As far as Ojon is concerned, a whole lot of hair-repairing power. Protective benefits have been discovered in the fruit surrounding the Ojon nut. Rouge oleifera, or “red oil,” is extracted from the pulp and used to boost the defensive properties of Ojon’s new Damage Reverse Instant Restorative Hair Serum ($25). The crimson oil has clinically proven antioxidant activity from the potent beta carotene also responsible for its rich, red color. Enhanced with ojon oil, vitamins C and E, rosemary extract and UV sunscreens, Instant Restorative Hair Serum with Rouge Oleifera repairs and seals the cuticle to fight frizz while protecting hair from heat styling and environmental damage, according to the company.

For years, La Roche-Posay has studied the link between “micro-inflammatory” stress of nerve endings in the skin and the acceleration of aging, especially in sensitive skin types, known to age faster than normal skin. But more recent studies have shown that one of the main triggers of “micro-inflammatory” stress is exposure to the damaging rays of the sun.
Building on the success of Redermic [+], La Roche-Posay introduces Redermic[+] UV Intensive Daily Anti-Wrinkle Firming Fill-In Care with SPF 25, the first wrinkle-filling treatment with broad spectrum sun protection to combat the effects of “micro-inflammatory” aging, according to the company.
Redermic[+] UV Intensive Daily Anti-Wrinkle Firming Fill-In Care with SPF 25 ($53.95) takes a three-pronged approach to anti-aging, with ingredients to fight the signs of aging, the “micro-inflammatory” stress that causes it and UV exposure, a main trigger of that “micro-inflammatory” stress.
The formulation incorporates neurosensine, a calming ingredient that inhibits neuro mediator production in nerve endings to neutralize inflammation. To combat wrinkles, the formulation includes 5% pure and stable vitamin C to boost collagen, along with madecassoside, which fills in deep wrinkles by regenerating dermal fibers. Additionally, a patented combination of octocrylene with avobenzone provides photostable broad spectrum protection, while octisalate provides additional UVB protection.
