What Is It?

Spin trap is an intelligent antioxidant and one of the most powerful.Also known as Phenyl t-Butylnitrone or PBN, it is a highly active oxygen and nitrogen complex.

Why We Added It To Our 1A All-Day Mask?

We love it because it is a potent antioxidant that works by stabilizing free radicals that are spinning out of control. It is anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective and damage-reversing. Spin traps have a fundamentally different mechanism than other antioxidants. They are the only antioxidant capable of differentiating between good oxygen molecules and damaging ones (ROS). It ‘traps’ them, converts them into harmless and useful oxygen and then transports them back into the respiratory cycle where they can go to work; protecting the skin against environmental damage, and promotes even, smooth and glowing skin. How’s that for amazing?
