Mechanism of action
In vitro tests prove Mala’Kîte™ effectively:
- shields against oxidative stress,
- stimulates the natural antioxidant pool.
Once used as an ore to produce copper, today malachite is more well known as a gemstone.
This beautiful stone has a green color that does not fade over time or through exposure to light, ranging from a pastel blue-green all the way to a dark green verging on black.
Mala’Kîte™ brings a spectacular blue lagoon color to formulations. Dose-dependent, this color, used in toners, serums or emulsions, is perfectly stable over time.
