THE MANE INGREDIENT
Being one of the most abundant and beneficial minerals in the bunch, silica has been coined “the beauty mineral” for good reason. A mixture of silicon and oxygen, this all-purpose beauty booster is key for optimizing collagen production in the body. By acting as a glue, silica sits inside of collagen and provides strength, flexibility, and resilience to the connective tissues. These fortifying bonds boost the skin’s natural ability to retain water and generate cell renewal, thus promoting glowing, supple skin. Unfortunately, just as the formation of collagen begins to slow as we age, silica production also begins to wane. Therefore, it’s imperative for humans to ingest silica on a regular basis in order to promote cell rejuvenation and skin elasticity.
Not to be overlooked, silica is also widely used for promoting hair growth, strengthening fine, brittle nails, and has been shown to boost immunity, support arterial health, enhance flexibility in bones and joints, and restore connective tissues. With the basis of SkinTē being an all-in-one beauty beverage that supports wellness from the inside out, Dr. Bader found horsetail to be the mare-ical ingredient to our glow-inducing formulas!
