Our Story & Commitment

Mary Butler and Cat Tatman of intelligent elixirs skincare

About Mary and Cat

We have always been passionate about creating quality products that nourish and foster healthy, youthful skin. With a combined 36 years of industry experience in professional skincare development we were inspired to create a product line for the consumer marketplace that performs on the same level as professional products, but with ingredients that are clean, clinical and cruelty-free. We share in the belief that Vitamin C is essential to maintaining skin's health, providing daily support and fighting free radical damage. As we get older, we learn the value of supplementing our diets with proper vitamins and nutrients – it’s crucial to do the same for our skin as well.

Together we welcome you to intelligent elixirs, healthy, accessible skincare to believe in.

 


 

Why Our Products Work

Extensive industry experience has given us a unique understanding of key elements that contribute to visibly aging the skin. We have carefully developed our products with active levels of clinical ingredients to address these factors and ultimately promote healthy, glowing skin and help curb the visible signs of aging.

As we age our skins regenerative functions naturally decrease, this is known as intrinsic aging.  Cellular turnover and collagen synthesis slow down and our skin doesn’t maintain internal hydration as effectively. To better support the skins regenerative functions we’ve included exfoliants to promote cellular turnover and ingredients that protect and promote collagen synthesis, reduce trans-epidermal water loss (TWEL) and help the skin maintain hydration. 

We are also constantly exposed to oxidative stress and free radicals.  
Sun, pollution and stress causes inflammation, weakens our collagen & elastin, eventually leading to fine lines, wrinkles and adverse pigmentation. Antioxidants and anti-inflammatories protect the skin by suppressing oxidative stress, calm and soothe the skin.

The key to controlling free radical damage are antioxidants and anti-inflammatories.  Antioxidants protect the skin by suppressing oxidative stress caused by free radicals while anti-inflammatories help protect and calm the skin.

  1. Free Radical Damage - We are constantly exposed to free radicals such as sun, pollution, and stress which weakens our collagen and elastin eventually leading to fine lines, wrinkles and adverse pigmentation. The key to controlling free radical damage is antioxidants. Antioxidants protect the skin by suppressing oxidative stress caused by free radicals.

 

  1. Systemic Inflammation - We are exposed to inflammation from many sources, such as sun, acne, psoriasis, dermatitis and skin infections. Inflammation weakens the skins defenses and damages how it functions. The result is visible signs of aging on our skin.  Using anti-inflammatory ingredients topically helps calm and protect the skin.
