Discover what free radicals are and how you can fight them with these 5 natural ingredients that you can find in natural cosmetics.
What are free radicals?
Environmental pollution, sun radiation, tobacco, pesticides, oxygen in the atmosphere are the main causes of free radicals, which attack our cells causing cellular ageing. Oxidative stress is caused by the unbalance between the production of free radicals and the ability of our biological system to neutralise and repair the damage caused by them. The result? Premature ageing.
