The skin is an incredible organ tasked with the job of protecting us from the elements of the outer world. Not only does it help us regulate body temperature and prevent loss of essential body fluids, it keeps us safe from micro-organisms, radiation, chemicals and mechanical impacts.
The outer layer of skin, the stratum corneum, due to its critical location at the interface between the body and the environment, is continuously exposed to oxidants that cause cellular damage, including UV radiation, chemical oxidants, air pollutants, and bacteria. To add insult, the majority of skincare products available contain extremely harmful toxins that can cause allergies, neurological disorders, cancer, reproductive issues and other health concerns. The human body is able to produce its own collection of antioxidant enzymes to counteract some of these free radicals, but these become depleted by environmental stress and age; thus prevention strategies are essential. Feeding the body with supplemental natural antioxidants via topically applied products, and internally from food and supplements will combat disease, cancer, and the signs of aging.
The primary mission at LINNÉ is to honor our largest organ by providing a comprehensive collection of skin products designed to provide the body with the nutrition needed to do just that. Each LINNÉ formula is rich in antioxidants, and supports nutrients that help support cell health.
