ScarsVanish oil contains ingredients that have been used in aromatherapy and herbal healing to promote skin health and aid recovery from the effects of damaging enviornmental issues or that resulting from injury. This innovative blend of fixed oils, sujper critical high-pressure solvent extracts and steam distilled essential oils provide the benefits of a high level of squalene, tocopherols and tocotrienols, all necesssary components for healthy skin.

Squalene - A polyunsaturated hydrocarbon that is widely distributed in nature, including in humans.(2) It is found and harvested from the fatty livers of sharks living in deep water for use as a dietary supplement and topical skin care additive. It is also found in Amaranth Amaranthus caudatus, a beneficial culinary grain and extracted oil.

Tocopherols - Main functions in a nutshell:

* Major fat soluble antioxidant of the body

* Non-antioxidant functions in cell signalling, gene expression and regulation of other cell functions

(1)Topopherols are comprised primarily of Vitam E and are found in healthy skin. The major biological function of vitamin E is that of a lipid soluble antioxidant preventing the propagation of free-radical reactions. Free radicals are formed in normal metabolic processes and upon exposure to exogenous toxic agents (e.g. cigarette smoke, pollutants). Vitamin E is located within the cellular membranes. It protects polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) and other components of cellular membranes from oxidation by free radicals. Apart from maintaining the integrity of the cell membranes in the human body, it also protects low density lipoprotein (LDL) from oxidation.

Recently, non-antioxidant functions of a-tocopherol have been identified.

?-Tocopherol inhibits protein kinase C activity, which is involved in cell proliferation and differentiation. Vitamin E inhibits platelet aggregation and enhances vasodilation. Vitamin E enrichment of endothelial cells downregulates the expression of cell adhesion molecules, thereby decreasing the adhesion of blood cell components to the endothelium.
