    A Perfect World
    Is youth sustainable? Nature says yes.
    Higher levels of pollution have substantially increased our potential for skin damage - and aging. No worries. Our multi-action age defenders with rare Silver Tip White Tea surround skin in a virtually impenetrable protective bubble that intercepts damage before it causes lines, wrinkles, dark spots and loss of firmness.
    Some see a leaf.
    We see a laboratory.
    Silver Tip White Tea
    Grown exclusively in China’s Fujian Province, White Tea was prized for centuries by emperors in China’s famed “Elixir of Immortality.” The legend has more than a leaf of truth to it. White Tea contains the highest amount of EGCG (epigallo catechin gallate) of all teas. EGCG is the powerful antioxidant that protects skin from age-accelerating free radicals.
    This small, flowering plant helps repair past oxidative damage so when cells produce they are healthier and better functioning.
    This plant extract, contained in the skin of red grapes, helps protect the body against aging. It is one of the most recognized super antioxidants.
    Maritime Pine
    Maritime Pine trees grow in an unspoiled natural forest (free of pesticides or herbicides) near the Bordeaux region of France. This super-antioxidant is often called the “youth nutrient.” Extract from its bark contains high levels of bioflavonoids that help protect skin cells against “glycoxidative” damage that can undermine skin’s defenses and make it more vulnerable to UV exposure. Maritime Pine bark extract helps protect against glycoxidation, just like the bark protects the tree.
    A genus of trees long used in Ayurvedic therapies, Boswellia sets up a secure sanctuary against age-accelerating static and stress. This extract trigers the natural production of anti-stress proteins in skin and acts like a shock absorber, bouncing all negativity away from skin to help protect it against environmental damage.

    Q: What are free radicals?
    A: Free radicals are unstable molecules that can cause damage to the proteins and other molecules in skin and interfere with skin’s natural inner defenses. Exposure to sun’s damaging rays, car exhaust, ozone, pollution and other environmental hazards are known to amplify free radical production. Antioxidants are super-nutrients that literally wipe out free radicals before they do their damage. And in every field of health, from internal medicine to dermatology to dentistry and nutrition, research is proving that antioxidants do help slow the aging process.
    Q: What makes White Tea such a powerful antioxidant?
    A: White Tea, known as Yinzhen (silver needles), is produced exclusively in China, mainly in the high mountains of the Fujian Province. It is picked for a few short days each spring from the Camellia sinensis plant, when the white buds are just growing. Only the youngest leaves are selected. Up to 80,000 hand-plucked shoots are needed to produce just one pound of this rare, aromatic tea. The leaves are then gently fermented for only a short duration in natural sunlight. The absence of additional processing is what distinguishes White Tea from other teas and infuses it with its myriad of health-promoting benefits. Researchers speculate that this minimal processing maintains White Tea’s high level of antioxidants.
    Q: How was White Tea tested?
    A: Several years ago, scientists at University Hospitals of Cleveland and Case Western Reserve University demonstrated that the antioxidants in White Tea are effective in boosting the immune function of skin cells and protecting them against the damaging effects of the sun and aging. Scientists applied a White Tea extract cream to skin that is not ordinarily exposed to sunlight, while another area was left unprotected. Both areas were then exposed to artificial sunlight. Researchers then reapplied the White Tea extract to the area previously coated. Three days later the scientists compared the patches of skin on a cellular level. They found that the White Tea cream protected the sun-exposed against the destruction that was observed in the skin that was not treated.
    Did you know?
    Origins used a specialized chamber that simulated ozone at levels that approximate those found in some of the world’s most polluted cities (Beijing, Mexico City, Los Angeles). In this in vitro study - after exposure of only 3 hours, the White Tea-based antioxidant blend in the new A Perfect World SPF 25 Age-defense moisturizer with White Tea reduced the damaging effects of simulated ozone by 76.6%, creating a better bubble to protect skin.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Sooo good It's not really a lotion but a liquid. I put in on with a cotton ball after I wash my face and it gets my face clean, but leaves it very supple. It's a great base before I put on my moisutrizer. Also, it seems to be shrinking my pores! I have to say, my skin is looking very good. I'm mid 60's, and I've used just about everything out there but this will be a product I do not want to run out of. August 2, 2012
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Best toner ever A great product all round!! My skin can be an absolute nightmare, I have dry sensitive skin with areas where the skin is 'normal', I sometimes get breakouts on my cheeks & have larger pores on my nose. This is the best skincare product I've ever used & by far the best toner I've found, it seems to improve all my skin problems. Since I've been using this treatment lotion my skin isn't as dry, I still get breakouts, but they don't seem to be as bad as before & the treatment lotion actually seems to slightly reduce the size of my pores. Best of all the product makes my skin feel really nice & comfortable, it stops my skin from feeling uncomfortably/dry tight after cleansing. I ran out of this product for a couple of weeks & it was horrible! My skin went back to being dry & uncomfortable, my pores looked larger & overall my skin just did not look good at all. This product is totally addictive, I would not want to be without it again, it really works. I love using the product in the morning without the use of a cleanser. I just use the toner on a cotton ball & follow with moisturizer. This is great to save time getting ready in the morning & it still gives the skin a mild clean (any dirt should come off on the cotton ball). This product is great because it's not an astringent like most toners so it doesn't dry the skin out. I would recommend this for all skin types especially dry & sensitive skin. April 8, 2012
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutely Pleasant Surprise I took a gamble by ordering this product online, and boy am I happy that I did. I use this product after cleansing with Clean Energy Gentle Cleansing Oil, and I have seen a marked improvement in the overall health of my skin. I'm hesitant to call it a "lotion," since it isn't gloopy or thick like other face lotion products, but it certainly also steers clear of the unfortunate shiny effect of some toners. I would call this the Magical Moisturizing, Evening, Brightening, Delicious-Smelling, Can't-Believe-I-Ever-Lived-Without-It Face Potion. In short: this product will change your face for the better!!!! I absolutely recommend it!!!! April 30, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by The best thing I've ever done for my skin For years I avoided using toners because it dried out my my already dry skin. I compensated by over-using moisturizers which left my skin feeling heavy and oily. When i went in for a mini facial at origins a couple years ago, they said my issue wasn't dry skin, but dehydrated skin. Didn't realize there was a difference—but they suggested using the perfect world lotion instead of a toner (this type of lotion is very common in Japanese skin care, but they are called 'softeners'). The benefits were immediate and my skin feels amazing. It also reduced the amount of moisturizer I use by at least a half. This product is an absolute must-have for dryer/dehydrated skin!
