Caffeine Helps to reduce puffiness and under-eye dark circles, soothing and antioxidant benefits, protecting skin from damage caused by anti-inflammation and free radicals. It improves the microcirculation and tightens the blood vessels, thereby clearing the excess accumulated fluid from the tissues, reducing puffiness and lighten the appearance of dark circles.
Algae-derived extract (single-cell green microalgae) Its obtained from a strain of Chlorella vulgaris, a highly resistant unicellular algae that appeared 2.5 billion years ago in the freshwater reservoirs of the planet. Rich in lutein, an essential natural antioxidant, it nourishes and protects the tissues from the harmful action of free radicals and their effects on aging. It improves the texture homogeneity of the skin and decreases the surface lines and the amount of wrinkles. It also inhibits an enzyme responsible for collagen and elastin destruction, preserving those fibers and skin firmness and suppleness. Offers soothing and improves skin water retention ability, exposing a smoother, hydrated, and supple surface. It decreases the factors involved in activating inflammation and the deterioration of tissues and increases the factors involved in repairing the dermis, epidermis, and barrier function.
Acts on all levels of skin pigmentation for a uniform, lightened complexion. Watercress extract and complexed zinc with high bioavailability inhibit tyrosinase, the key enzyme in melanin formation. Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide) and an Essential Cell Boost Factor influence melanin transport. Vitamin B3 inhibits melanosome transfer from melanocytes to keratinocytes. The Essential Cell Boost Factor promotes the formation of cell adhesion proteins, which contribute to the even distribution of pigment in the skin.
C15-19 Alkane is plant-derived and used as a solvent and emollient, serving as an ideal alternative to silicones and mineral oil. C15-19 Alkane has excellent spreading properties that improve the texture and application. It is also highly stable and resistant to oxidation, making products long-lasting.
Caramel is a natural ingredient used in cosmetics for its color and scent. It is derived from sugar and is commonly used to provide a brown or golden color. Caramel is also used as a fragrance or flavoring agent.
Carbomer is a synthetic polymer, used as a thickening agent and emulsifier. It can absorb and retain large amounts of water, which makes it useful in creating gels and creams with a smooth, even texture. Carbomer also helps to stabilize the formulation of cosmetics by preventing them from separating into their individual components.
Cetyl hydroxyethylcellulose is a thickener and emulsifier that is derived from plant cellulose and is often added to formulations to give them a smooth and creamy texture. Cetyl hydroxyethylcellulose also helps to stabilize emulsions by preventing the separation of oil and water-based ingredients. Additionally, it improves the spreadability and absorption of products on your skin.
Citric acid is a naturally occurring organic acid derived from citrus fruits and is known for its ability to balance the pH of formulations. Citric acid is also a mild exfoliant and can brighten your skin by promoting skin renewal.
Coco-caprylate is a natural lightweight, fast-absorbing emollient. It is derived from coconut oil and caprylic acid and hydrates your skin without leaving a greasy or heavy feeling. Coco-caprylate also improves the texture of formulations by creating a smooth and silky feel.
C10-18 Triglycerides are a type of natural fatty acid used as a skin conditioning agent and emollient. They are derived from coconut oil and glycerin and have a lightweight texture that allows them to quickly absorb into your skin, leaving it feeling soft and smooth. They also have excellent moisturizing properties that prevent dryness and promote healthy skin.

Caprylyl Glycol is a multifunctional ingredient and a mild and gentle compound derived from coconut oil. Caprylyl Glycol attracts and retains moisture in your skin, which hydrates and softens it. It is also an effective preservative that can help extend cosmetics products' shelf life.
Cylasphere Retinol is a soft retinol, anti-wrinkle and whitening agent. It reduces the appearance of wrinkles with low irritant potential. Agar microspheres enables the encapsulation of fragile molecules by maintaining them intact. These microspheres are biodegradable, penetrate the epidermis, are progressively degraded by skin enzymes and gradually release their content: highly active retinol.
Copper Tripeptide-1 is a carrier peptide with three amino acids and copper renews the skin's health and reduces the visible signs of aging. Known as a signaling peptide due to the way it sends reparative signals by targeting key proteins in the skin's extracellular matrix, increasing fibroblast growth, and activating the repairing process. It increases glycosaminoglycans (replenishing/hydrating substances like hyaluronic acid) and reduces inflammatory responses. It promotes collagen and elastin production, responsible for skin strength, firmness, flexibility, and a tighter appearance.
C20-22 alcohols are a mixture of fatty alcohols derived from natural sources, such as coconut or botanical oil. They help to soften and smooth your skin: C20-22 alcohols are often used in combination with other ingredients to create a moisturizing and nourishing effect on your skin.
