ADVANCED Age-Defying Serum
ADVANCED Age-Defying Serum
Beautiful on Raw's NEW Advanced Age-Defying Serum is a super green wrinkle-control formula that helps transform your skin's appearance. This fast-acting firming serum is made from a unique combination of patented peptides and botanicals. It works to stimulate the production of collagen, restore skin's moisture balance, smooth facial skin and ward off wrinkles.
Powerful antioxidants in goji berry seed oil and sea buckthorn fruit and seed oils help protect exposed skin against environmental damage and keep your face soft, smooth and younger looking.
The delicate scent is achieved by an exquisite blend of essential oils—no artificial fragrances added. In addition, this Advanced Age-Defying Serum is so light, it can be used day and night, alone or under make-up.
The Serum Works in 4 ways to Give You Rejuvenated and Radiant Skin:
Goji berry seed oil, sea buckthorn fruit and seed oil contain powerful antioxidants that provide essential protection from environmental damage.
Apple stem cell extract, derived from the rare Uttwiler Swiss apple variety, is a revolutionary active ingredient with demonstrated anti aging effects.
Pro-Coll-One+®, a breakthrough wrinkle care ingredient, naturally derived from hydrolyzed soya, helps boost collagen synthesis, smooth out the skin's micro-features and reduce crow's feet.
AQUAXYL™, derived from natural sugars, helps the skin’s hydration, improving water reserves and limiting water loss by realigning cutaneous water flow to better moisturize and strengthen the skin.
What's the Difference between the "Glow" Facial Cream and this new Serum?
There are actually several differences that matter in your beauty regimen…
- First, as the very name "serum" implies, our Age-Defying Serum is more potent, so you can use it more sparingly. But you can get lavish with our "Glow" Facial Cream—especially after dry-brushing or before your Strigil-scraping.
- Second, the Age-Defying Serum is a must for the over-forty crowd, thanks to its specially fashioned Pro-Coll-One+®, a breakthrough wrinkle care ingredient.
- Your best bet…alternate the two products—cream one day, serum the next. I like to use the Nourishing Night Cream every night, but I alternate between the cream and serum, from morning to morning.
If you don’t use a night cream at all, then use the "Glow" Facial Cream in the morning and the Serum at night.

Organic Aloe Barbadensis (vera) Leaf Juice

Glycerin is a food-grade sugar alcohol derived from vegetable oil. Vegetable glycerin helps cleanse and moisturize skin, offering softening and lubricating properties. It serves as a humectant, skin protectant and viscosity-decreasing agent in our cream. Glycerin does all this by helping maintain the water balance in the skin’s intercellular matrix.
Organic Chamomile Flower Extract
Matricaria recutita flower extract, derived from the German chamomile flower (the same one popularly used in herbal teas) has been used for centuries to cleanse wounds, soothe inflammation and prevent infection. It is excellent for sensitive and allergy-prone skin, thanks to the anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties of its soothing azulene compounds.
Organic Tea Tree Leaf Extract
Camellia sinensis leaf extract is derived from the same plant used to produce Chinese tea (not to be confused with the Australian ‘tea tree’). This extract possesses strong antioxidant, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, helps repair damaged cells, improving skin tone and texture.
Organic Olive Leaf Extract
Olive leaf extract improves circulation of blood, which keeps the organs healthy, eliminate toxin accumulations, and thereby keep the skin glowing and healthy. The flavonoids and oleanolic acid present in olive leaf stimulate the components of the connective tissue and regularize it - thereby boosting the health of the skin.
Damask Rose Oil
Derived from fresh rose petals by steam distillation, damask rose oil works wonders on the skin, making it healthy, fresh, soft, and supple. It nourishes dry skin and helps it retain moisture, yet is also good for oily skin, for it acts as an astringent, which helps in tightening skin tissues, opening skin pores on the face, and controlling the greasiness. Moreover, Damask rose oil is a rich source of vitamin C which acts as an antioxidant and improves the texture of the skin.
This oil is obtained from the Bergamot Orange, a tree that can grow up to 12 feet high, with star-shaped flowers and bears citrus fruits resembling a mix of orange and grapefruit. The oil is extracted from the rind of this fruit and is known for giving skin a healthy glow, helping combat acne and healing irritated skin. Due to its astringent qualitiy, Bergamot oil helps balance oily skin.
Rose-Scented Geranium Oil
Used back to the times of the Egyptians for beautiful, radiant skin, Rose-scented geranium oil helps to balance the secretion of sebum and clears sluggish and oily skin. This oil has a great balancing effect and this extends to the skin - where it helps to create balance between oily and dry skin, keeping the skin supple and clearing congested skin. Known for its astringent and anti-bacterial benefits, when applied in skin care geranium helps heal and clear acne and overly oily skin while still promoting new skin cells for normal and dry skin.
Neroli Bigarade (Bitter Orange) Oil
Extracted from the flowers of Citrus aurantium (Bitter Orange), Neroli is known for its rejuvenating and regenerative effects on the skin due to its deep penetrating action and restructuring skin care properties. It helps prevent skin dehydration and formation of scar tissue and can help to regenerate skin cells, leaving the skin soft and smooth.
