Hema’Tîte™

Anti-aging mineral complex

Nature is a constant inspiration for cosmetics ingredients, but plants are not the only sources of natural actives. Mineral Matters™ liquid stone extracts apply special technology to extract important minerals from precious stones and make them bioavailable to the skin.  The result is a unique line of substantiated stone actives that enhance and protect. Hema’Tite is an iron-rich active extracted from hematite.  This novel antiaging active stimulates collagen synthesis and increases the thickness of the epidermis with a retinol-like action: wrinkles are erased and skin is visibly firmer and thicker.

Hematite Extract

Hematite is the mineral form of iron oxide.  The stone has a crystal structure and can range in color from black or silver-gray to deep, rich red.  In fact, the name hematite is derived from the Greek word for “blood” because of the deep, rich color of the stone.
 

Hematite

The stones used to create Hema’Tite liquid stone extract are sourced in Brazil. A specific iron complex is then extracted from the stones to yield an active for skin application.
