Not only do these wash your lips with high-impact, long-wearing colour, the active ingredients help to plump up the volume, reshape contours, reduce the appearance of vertical lines and restore suppleness. It wouldn’t be a Zelens product without the treatment properties now, would it? For those graced with a firm understanding of Science (me, you ask? Basic.), the lipsticks harness key ingredients such as phytoplankton, a natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant that mimics the activity of retinol through retinoid receptors; tripeptide, to stimulate natural collagen; purslane, which accelerates the wound healing process; retinol ester, a source of vitamin A to promote collagen production while encouraging the lip renewal process; palm, cotton and linseed oils for moisture; and our good old friend hyaluronic acid, need I go on?
