Activating the skin’s detoxification system

About Detoxophane

Detoxophane is a purified extract of Swiss garden cress sprouts that contains sulforaphane, which is a well-known activator of phase II detoxification enzymes.

Detoxophane succeeds in enhancing the resistance of skin cells against environmental pollutants and intrinsic reactive molecules. It both cleans off and protects our skin cells against dangerous molecules and is therefore an effective anti-aging ingredient for all skin care products.
