Frequently Asked Questions

What are antioxidants?

Plantioxidants utilizes antioxidants from plants.  Antioxidants protect the skin against free radicals caused by stress, excessive alcohol consumption, smoke, pollution, radiation, smog and other environmental damage that destroys and ages skin.  Just as sunblock protects against the sun's UV rays, antioxidants can help protect against the sun and all other free radical damage.  Not only do antioxidants protect against these harmful, aging elements, but they can also help restore the appearance of previously damaged skin.

How do you measure antioxidants?

Currently the best method to measure antioxidants is through ORAC units. ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity, and it is used to help understand the ability and amount of antioxidants that may absorb free radicals. The science of measuring antioxidant strength is always improving but currently the best measure we have of overall strength of antioxidants is ORAC units. Each Plantioxidants box includes the minimum ORAC units we have measured for each bottle. 

Are Plantioxidants products gluten free?


How long do Plantioxidants products last?

On each bottle, there is an open jar symbol with a number in it which represents the number of months before you should finish the bottle by.  The average for our products is 6 months. Because all Plantioxidants formulas are certified organic and free of harsh, toxic preservatives, it is highly recommended that you store all products in a cool, dark location. 

Does Plantioxidants have SPF products?

We are in the process of developing them now! Given how robust the certification process is and how careful we are to deliver only the best, this may not come out for a couple of months. In the mean time, be sure to check out our other products!
