Immuno-Viva's Garden of Youth

Eating colorful fruits and veggies, in addition to being the cornerstone of a healthy diet, is a sort of “inside-out” skincare regimen. The phytonutrients in fresh produce help combat the damage done by free radicals, which speed the aging process. The latest trend is augmenting free-radical-fighting power with topical antioxidants—saturating with aging fighters from the “outside-in”—and Wisconsin-based Botanic Innovations offers a local alternative to the international cosmeceuticals. Botanic started out producing its Immuno-Viva line of all-natural ingestible supplements, rich with potent antioxidants via cold-pressed fruit and seed oils. Its new Youth Garden Vitamin C and Renew Anti-Aging serums, made with oils from cranberry, rasberry, cumin, sunflower, and other seeds, ($50 and $75 respectively for 1 fl oz.) are designed to be applied directly to the skin. In the case of Youth Garden, vitamin E tocotrienols, carotenoids, fatty acids, and oil-soluble vitamin C are intended to promote collagen production, reduce wrinkles, and brighten skin—all without having to take a single bite of kale.
