1. StBotanica Pure Radiance Day Face Cream, Skin Brightening, Anti Aging Moisturizing Cream with SPF 21 PA+++ (With Vitamin C, Retinol, Hyaluronic Acid, Collagen) 50gm
Here is a moisturizing and nourishing cream for daytime use that contains almost every ingredient that is known to rejuvenate and nourish the skin. The major ingredients in this product are vitamin C, retinol, hyaluronic acid and collagen. Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant used in dermatology to fight photo-ageing. It is known to help in reducing hyperpigmentation. As per clinical studies, the efficacy of Vitamin C helps in stimulating synthesis of collagen in the young as well as in the aging skin when used topically.  Retinol when used topically helps in keeping the skin hydrated by inducing production of glycosaminoglycan, which helps in retaining moisture in the skin. Furthermore, retinol plays an important role in production of the collagen precursor procollagen, thereby inhibiting thinning of the skin that occurs when the skin starts aging. 
Hyaluronic acid is the primary molecule for retaining moisture in the skin. Depletion of hyaluronic acid reduces the moisture content of the skin, and the skin loses its resilience.  This day cream contains collagen in the hydrolyzed form. As collagen is capable of absorbing moisture almost 30 times its weight, it is considered an excellent humectant.  In addition, StBotanica Pure Radiance Day Face Cream combines multiple natural oils such as sweet almond cold pressed oil, avocado, extra virgin olive, grapeseed, virgin jojoba and Moroccan argan oil. Shea butter, glycerine and beeswax ensure that the skin stays moisturized throughout the day. Green tea extract, tamarind, pomegranate and Butcher’s Broom help against free radical damage, removes age spots, unnatural aging, and softens the skin as well. As this is a day cream, zinc oxide is incorporated to protect the skin from the harsh ultraviolet radiation. It helps in guarding the skin from the UVA and UVB rays of the sun.

It contains cucumber, shea butter, aloe vera and organic jojoba oil, in addition to botanical hyaluronic acid that helps in keeping the skin moisturized and smooth.
Hyaluronic acid, retinol, Vitamin C and hydrolyzed collagen add to its effectiveness as a product for fighting skin aging. It contains the skin-friendly vitamin B3, A, E and pro-vitamin B5. Green tea extract is an important anti-aging ingredient present in this night cream. The green tea polyphenols are known to stimulate microcirculation in the skin and helps fight inflammation, which is responsible for premature aging of the skin. EGCG, the major polyphenol in green tea, is believed to be 20 times more potent in neutralizing free radicals that damage the skin. Topical application of green tea extract is known to make the skin more firm and elastic.
