Research has shown that silymarin can help the skin recover from damage by UV light and chemical carcinogenics like benzoyl peroxide, immunosupression by UV, inflammation, oxidative stress, and it can even stop non-melanoma skin cancer in some cases.

Due to the prevalence of benzoyl peroxide in acne treatments (like ProActiv) and the enormous number of people that suffer from acne at some point in their lives, this could be an important active ingredient to prevent complications down the road.

Add our Silymarin to your favorite recipe to reverse some of the damage caused by repeated exposure to benzoyl peroxide.

Silymarin, an heterogenous extract of Silybum marianum (milk thistle) may be as effective as RetinA without the irritation. Silymarin has multiple beneficial effects on the skin, protecting it from a variety of environmental agents. Research has shown that silymarin reduces the effects of toxins on epidermal cells; as an antioxidant, it prevents the oxidative damage to DNA caused by UV radiation, and it protects against chemically induced skin tumors in mice. Recent research looked at the mechanism by which silymarin prevents skin cancer and it seems that it normalizes the function of a “deranged” cell membrane receptor. These multiple functions make silymarin an ideal ingredient for skin care and skin cancer prevention.

Each tube is enough for 16 fl oz of cream or lotion at approximately 1% concentration (5 g in 480 mL cream). Use in your favorite cream or add to our Canvas Base Cream or a Sea Kelp Bioferment base.
