White Tea Extract has been proven to have effectiveness in boosting the immune function of skin cells and protecting them against the damaging effects of the sun. The discovery that white tea extract protects the skin from oxidative stress and immune cell damage adds another important element in the battle against skin cancer. They also found that the DNA damage that can occur in cells after exposure to sunlight was limited in skin cells protected by the white tea extract. Researchers believe that white tea extract's anti-oxidant properties are the reason the extract was so effective, if so, it also suggest that the agent may provide anti-aging benefits. The same process of oxidative stress in skin cells that leads to immune system damage can also promote skin cancer and photo damage, such as wrinkling or mottled pigmentation.
Grape Seed Extract is an extremely effective anti-oxidant, which is up to 50 times more powerful than Vitamin E and 30 times more powerful that Vitamin C when it comes to fighting health threatening "free radicals."

Some researchers also believe that grape seed extract helps Vitamin C enter cells, thus strengthening the cell membranes and protecting the cells from oxidative damage.
Citric Acid is a common ingredient in cosmetics.
