DeVita has a rich history and love affair with aloe vera. This particular ingredient has played an integral part in our brand story from the beginning. We love it for its natural ability to soothe and calm inflammation, hydrate, and penetrate the skin faster and deeper than water. After 20 years of proven efficacy in naturally-sourced skincare, we’re reinforcing our commitment to aloe vera-based skincare with an innovative, propriety, patent-pending blend called Aloe-Hyplex.
Aloe-Hyplex is our premium, signature delivery system, that allows the active ingredients in our products to reach the dermis so they actually penetrate and can work their magic. You will now find Aloe-Hyplex at the heart of all DeVita products.
This high-potency complex features premium, high polysaccharide, organic aloe vera lovingly and organically farmed in the Southwest USA. Always harvested from the most bountiful part of the aloe leaf, our aloe vera is completely pure, never processed or exposed to high heat. This proprietary complex of natural botanicals, polysaccharides and multi-molecular weights of hyaluronic acid helps heal, soothe, moisturize, and promote balance for ultimate skin health. While aloe vera is the core ingredient in our Aloe-Hyplex blend, three additional ingredients make up our signature delivery system: organic green tea and super moisturizing multi-molecular weight hyaluronic acids and vegetable glycerin.
ORGANIC ALOE VERA
Aloe has been known for its soothing and healing properties for at least 6,000 years. Aloe vera is an antioxidant-rich plant loaded with skin benefits and made up of: amino acids, anthraquinones, enzymes, minerals, vitamins, lignins, monosaccharides, polysaccharides, salicylic acid, saponins, and sterols. It also contains vitamins such as A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, and E plus minerals like zinc and selenium. Along with choline, calcium, magnesium, zinc, manganese, and chromium. All of this natural goodness helps soothe, moisturize, and heal the skin while antioxidants help improve skin’s natural firmness.
HYALURONIC ACID BLEND (HA)
HA attracts and retains over 1,000 times its weight in water within the cells of the skin, making it an excellent moisturizer. Our skin cells naturally produce hyaluronic acid, but as we age, those levels begin to diminish, losing skin’s full, plump, hydrated appearance.
A potent hydrator that contains both high and low molecular weight hyaluronic acids to replenish skin above and below the surface. Traditionally, only one size hyaluronic acid, HA with high molecular weight, has been found in skin care products. The high molecular weight HA provides topical benefits to the epidermis of the skin only, acting as a moisturizing agent to provide a soft, supple skin surface. While high molecular weight HA has its benefits, it is unable to penetrate below the epidermis of the skin. Incorporating a low molecular weight HA that is small enough to penetrate below the epidermis results in advanced skin moisturization and skin nourishing benefits for a world-class result that reflects a healthy, more youthful-looking appearance.
ORGANIC GREEN TEA
Green tea is a powerful antioxidant chock full of Vitamin B2 and Vitamin E, both essential for skin health maintenance. B2 plays an essential role in maintaining collagen levels for youthful skin structure and firmness. Vitamin E supports new skin cell growth and also acts an intense hydrator for soft and nourished skin.
Green tea also features Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which is the main “catechin”, a type of disease-fighting flavonoid and antioxidant, present in green tea that natural helps fight DNA damage from UB rays making it a powerful anti-aging ingredient. Green tea is also a powerful antibacterial agent for treating acne and unclogging pores. Polyphenols in green tea damage bacterial membranes and fight against infection, making it a useful tool in treating bacterial growth that can lead to acne.
A humectant that’s present in all natural lipids (fats) with skin-replenishing and skin-restoring benefits that help establish normal balance and hydration. Glycerin has natural oil regulating properties and a non-comedogenic factor of zero, which means it will not clog pores that can results in blackheads and blemishes. Glycerin is a safe, non-toxic moisturizer that can be used on the most sensitive skin to soften and smooth.
