" Antioxidants neutralise free radicals and prevent oxidative stress in the skin."
Skin is the vital organ that protects your body from the external elements such as pollutants and weather. Your skin also acts as a barrier to prevent toxic chemicals in the environment and household products to enter the body. Pollutants and toxic chemicals trigger free radical formation in the skin. Free radicals can cause oxidative stress which damages skin cells.
Some substances known as antioxidants are capable of neutralising free radicals. They protect your skin from oxidative damage. Look for these 5 best antioxidants when you buy skincare products:
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin E
- Ferulic acid
- Coenzyme Q10
" Antioxidant Youthful Essence is the first anti-ageing formula that I created for my own skin. 20 years on, I still use this ultimate pre-serum treatment complex twice a day."

Vitamin C is the best antioxidant for all skin types
Vitamin C has long been proven to be one of the best antioxidants. Studies showed that vitamin C helps prevent UV-induced free radical formation in the skin. It protects skin cells from photoageing. Vitamin C prevents and reduces the excess melanin production in the skin due to UV radiation. It diminishes the dark pigmentation spots and promotes collagen synthesis.
Among all forms of vitamin C, L-ascorbic acid is known to be the most potent one. It is the main ingredient in the multi-award-winning Antioxidant Youthful Essence. Formulated with vitamin C, E, B5 and ferulic acid; this pre-serum elixir is the best antioxidant skincare product for all skin types.
Vitamin E is the most soothing antioxidant for sensitive skin
Numerous studies showed that vitamin E protects skin cells from free radicals, promotes cellular activity and calms skin sensitivity. In skincare formulas, vitamin E prolongs the shelf life and boosts the efficacy of other antioxidants, notably vitamin C and coenzyme Q10.
For sensitive skin that needs extra nourishment and protection against dryness and harsh weather conditions, gently massage 4 to 6 drops of Bio-Collagen Face Oil to freshly cleansed face and neck after the serum and before the moisturiser. This supreme nourishing facial oil has been formulated with 16 active ingredients including 2 types of vitamin E, coenzyme Q10 and botanical complex to soothe, comfort, nourish and renew dry skin.

Ferulic acid is the best day time antioxidant
Ferulic acid is a unique antioxidant. In addition to its capability to prevent free radical formation and neutralise free radicals, ferulic acid also protects the skin from UV radiation particularly UVB. It is the best antioxidant for day time use. Studies showed that ferulic acid promotes cellular renewal and prevents the degradation of collagen, elastin and other skin components.
Coenzyme Q10 is the best antioxidant for mature skin
Coenzyme Q10 naturally present in our body. It plays a critical role in generating energy for the skin to renew itself. As part of ageing process, the production of coenzyme Q10 in our body declines. This has a significant impact on the skin's ability to repair damaged cells. In teenagers, the skin renews itself every 28 days. In adults, it takes between 28 and 42 days while in people age 50 and older, it may take up to 84 days for the skin to regenerate itself.
To restore the youthfulness of your skin, apply Bio-Collagen Serum every morning and evening, follow with Bio-Collagen Ageless Cream. Bio-Collagen Serum has been formulated with resveratrol, coenzyme Q10, ferulic acid and 24-karat gold nanoparticles to rejuvenate, brighten, lift and firm up the appearance of the skin.
“ I created Bio-Collagen Serum as a birthday present to my mum. This supreme anti-ageing serum is now the heart of my own daily skincare routine.”

Resveratrol is the most powerful anti-ageing antioxidant
Studies showed that resveratrol is more effective in neutralising free radicals than most vitamins and other antioxidants. Resveratrol also restores skin radiance, evens out complexion and helps reduce the appearance of dark spots and wrinkles.
Gold Nanoparticle Enhances The Efficacy of Antioxidants
In itself, gold nanoparticle is an excellent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and wound healing agent. When combined with other antioxidants, gold nanoparticle acts as a carrier that delivers the antioxidants deeper into the skin. Studies showed that gold nanoparticle enhances the efficacy of other antioxidants in neutralising free radicals.
For the best all year round protection against free radical damage, dryness and other signs of ageing, use Bio-Collagen Ageless Cream. It has been formulated with 24-karat gold nanoparticles, vitamin E, coenzyme Q10, niacinamide (vitamin B3) and natural peptide to restore skin's elasticity and firmness. Bio-Collagen Ageless Cream also promotes a radiant complexion and diminishes the signs of ageing including facial hyperpigmentation, dark circles and puffiness around the eyes. For best results, follow the recommended daily skincare routine for each skin type and concern.
" Bio-Collagen Ageless Cream was born from a request from my customer for the best possible anti-ageing cream. Now it is the only cream I use on my skin, day and night."
