A vegan skincare ingredient found in the leaves and seeds of the Psoralea corylifolia plant. It is a potent antioxidant, a natural alternative to retinol, visibly fades discolorations from environmental exposure and post-breakout marks, and has a noticeable restoring and soothing effect on the skin. Also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The soothing properties help calm and minimize sensitivity and reactivity issues.
Ultra-small natural round micro-polishing particles with a high silica content to eliminate dead cells, promote cell renewal, remove impurities. Makes skin soft and less granular. They refine and smooth the skin texture and unclog pores. Enhancing care product penetration and efficacy. It is 100% biodegradable.
Bisabolol is an extract of candeia tree bark rich in bisabolol, originating from Brazil. Soothes the irritation resulting in melanin overproduction, which causes uneven hyperpigmentation. Controls the transduction signal triggering melanogenesis by inhibiting melanin formation induced by an MSH-melanocyte-stimulating hormone, which is secreted by keratinocytes exposed to UV radiation.
Butyrospermum parkii, this plant lipid extracted from the karite tree, is used as an emollient, and its surface smoothing properties for dry skin. Shea butter doesn't just have a rich texture; it's also a rich source of Vitamin E, antioxidants, including quercetin, epicatechin gallate, gallocatechin, epigallocatechin, as well as skin-replenishing fatty acids (stearic and linoleic). They protect against dryness and soothe irritations.
Naturally derived, made up of an assembly of sugars obtained by biotechnology from plant substrates such as corn. It has humectant (water-binding) and soothing properties, Forming a flexible smoothing film on the skin's surface to retain moisture and strengthen the barrier function. Anti-aging properties by stimulating epidermal renewal and youth proteins sirtuins :1 to fight against aging and restructure the skin architecture.
Bio-Placenta (Pseudo-Placenta) is a term for plant-based ingredients that are designed to mimic the effects of placenta in skincare products. These ingredients are sourced from vegan origins and are renowned for their ability to nourish and moisturize the skin, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while also enhancing overall skin texture and tone. Our Bio-Placenta contains a combination of five growth factors (EGF, IGF-1, Acidic FGF, Basic FGF, VEGF) that have been safely replicated, as well as Vitamin B9 (important for cell growth and renewal) and acetylated glutamine (an amino acid crucial for collagen synthesis).
VEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor) increases the blood flow to the cells to provide nutrients and remove waste. This helps them heal and replenish faster.
Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF / Oligopeptide-1) and Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF / Oligopeptide-3 ) are two vital components with remarkable effects on skin health. EGF is renowned for ist mitogenic effect on cells, a wound healing effect by epithelialization, a growth, differentiation and migration of cells. One of EGF's notable benefits is its effectiveness in wrinkle care, where it aids in rejuvenating the skin. Furthermore, it activates hyaluronan synthase 2 in human epidermal keratinocytes.
FGF stimulate fibroblast cells, encouraging their growth and mitogenesis. This property translates into the stimulation of skin regeneration. FGF also promotes the synthesis of collagen and elastin in fibroblast cells, two critical proteins that lend firmness and elasticity to the skin. Moreover, basic Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF-2) works with insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) to activate hyaluronan synthesis in human epidermal fibroblasts.
Vitamin B9, also known as folic acid, undergoes a transformation into B9-Vitapol structural changes of folic acid into the natural form of polyglutamate. It is produced to improve the negative characteristics (pH sensitivity and low solubility) of folic acid through Korean traditional fermentation technology.
Oligopeptide-2 (IGF) Insulin-like Growth Factor: Provide energy to the cells to boost Collagen Production.
Bacillus/Soybean Ferment Extract is a natural anti-aging ingredient. It is derived from the fermentation of soybeans and is known for its ability to boost collagen production and improve skin elasticity: Bacillus/Soybean Ferment Extract helps to improve your overall skin texture, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and increases skin firmness. Additionally, it has antioxidant properties, making it effective in protecting your skin against environmental stressors.
Biosaccharide Gum-1 is a natural geling agent with soothing, moisturizing, anti-aging, sensory enhancer and restructuring properties. Biosaccaride Gum-1 is a polysaccharide with a high molecular weight obtained by bacterial
fermentation from vegetable substrates. Biosaccharide Gum-1 helps improving skin texture and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Furthermore, it calms and soothes your skin.
Behenyl Alcohol is a fatty alcohol that works as an emollient and thickener and helps improve the texture and consistency of a product. Behenyl Alcohol is derived from natural sources such as coconut oil and is also known for its ability to hydrate and soften your skin. Additionally, it helps to reduce the greasiness of other ingredients in the formula, making it effective in creating a lightweight, non-greasy finish. Free from ethanol/alcohol.
