EUK-134™ is a mimetic of superoxide dismutase and catalase, forming an exceptionally rare self-regenerating molecule that scavenges superoxide free radicals, eliminates hydrogen peroxide and converts reactive oxygen species into water and oxygen. While it has been around for many years, very few products on the market do use this truly superb antioxidant which can regenerate itself to offer round-the-clock antioxidant support. The only issue with EUK-134™ is that it must not be used immediately with strong acids such as suspensions of Ascorbic Acid. Strong acids will completely destroy EUK-134™ which is based on manganese.
The Ordinary EUK 134 0.1% is one of the strongest antioxidants available and has been shown to reduce visible redness and protect against the appearance of UV damage.
Why you need it:
The Ordinary EUK 134 0.1% is a super-strong antioxidant that regenerates itself, unlike most antioxidants. EUK 134 is a biomimetic of Catalase and Superoxide Dismutase enzyme. It fights free radicals, reactive oxygen species (ROS) and hydrogen peroxide but after each antioxidant reaction, it regenerates itself so that it can undertake another antioxidant reaction. It’s been shown to reduce visible redness and protect against appearance of UV damage. The 0.1% concentration is an extremely high concentration and more than 10 times the low suggested amount used in many formulations
It’s best used once a day in the AM on its own or it can be mixed with non-acidic formulations if desired.
Note: you may feel a warming sensation when using The Ordinary EUK 134 0.1%.
