This cream by Mad Hippie is chock full of active essentials and peptides to help kick-start collagen production. Anti-oxidants neutralize free radicals to help keep aging to a minimum. This product was awarded “Best Facial Moisturizer in Natural Solutions Magazine’s Beauty With A Conscience Awards” The amazing ingredients that are in this cream give great results. Actives are ingredients that have known anti-oxidant and skin rejuvenating properties. Peptides are naturally occurring short strings of amino acids that enhance collagen production and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Peptides also increase circulation in the skin and help strengthen capillaries, increase cellular communication and reduce muscle contractions (leading to a Botox effect). All of these actions lead to younger looking skin.
Below are the active ingredients you get in Mad Hippie Face Cream. Matrixyl 3000 helps to stimulate collagen and elastin production to reduce wrinkles, giving skin a lifting effect. It also increases skin’s elasticity and tone. Matrixyl 3000 has also been shown to reduce deep wrinkle surface area by as much as 45%, wrinkle density by as much as 37% and skin roughness by as much as 14%. Syn-Tacks is a dual peptide complex that increases the structural and functional integrity of the skin. It stimulates production of Laminin V., collagen type IV, VII, and XVII as well as Intergrin. It also tones and firms the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles while enhancing cellular communication. Coenzyme Q10 reduces fine lines and wrinkles by energizing cells to produce collagen, elastin and it also inhibits free radical and sun damage. Resveratrol is a super anti-oxidant that comes from wine & grapes. It has been shown to reduce the effects of aging and UV damage. Green tea protects against free radical damage while increasing skin’s resilience through anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic properties. Vitamin E is a powerful anti-oxidant that reduces fine lines and wrinkles as well as heals skin. It also protects against UV and free radical damage. Polyphenols are powerful antioxidants that have been shown to be 50x more effective at combating free radicals than Vitamin C. Aloe vera is a skin protectant with super natural skin healing properties. It increases the availability of oxygen to the skin and aids in the synthesis of skin tissue. Coconut oil moisturizes the skin and creates a lipid barrier the fends off skin damage, combats wrinkles and promotes healing. Argan oil is a high source of Vitamin E, essential fatty acids and phytosterols. It heals scar tissue, moisturizes the skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Grape seed extract is one of the most potent anti-oxidants that has been shown to inhibit UV generated skin damage. Acai berry is a super anti-oxidant that increases levels of hydroxyproline, a vital amino acid needed for synthesis of collagen and elastin. Pomegranate is a potent anti-oxidant that has a high source of ellagic acid, a polyphenol that has been shown to inhibit the growth of skin cancer. It also mediates the effects of UV rays and skin discoloration. Vitamin B3 energizes cells and has strong anti-oxidant/anti-carcingenic qualities. It has been shown to reduce the harmful effects of UV rays, helps to even skin tone and enhance collagen production.

I liked the Mad Hippie Face Cream. I do think that all of the actives make a difference. This is a cream that is light enough for normal skins and should be used for those with dry and mature skins too. All of the ingredients in this are essential for those who would like to try and keep fine lines and wrinkles at bay. It contains peptides which are good for helping aging skin. The other actives in this cream are essential for helping aging skin too. For natural skincare, this is top of the line. I am dying to try their Vitamin A Serum!
