Improves skin hydration by attracting water molecules; also has anti-inflammatory benefits that calm and soothe skin. A perfect hydrating ingredient, also known as provitamin B5, it attracts and retains moisture, increasing skin hydration while decreasing trans epidermal water loss.
Fights free radical skin damage and prevents premature aging; it increases hydration and smooths the skin surface; it has outstanding moisture-retaining ability and is one of the most rapidly absorbed organic oils.
Helps to retain moisture and is a rich source of skin-replenishing ingredients, including triglycerides and several fatty acids (oleic, linoleic). Contains several other skin goodies such as antioxidant vitamins E and B and Vitamin A to accelerate skin cell turnover to help the skin look smooth and soft without a greasy residue.
Derived from the Persian silk tree, it offers some impressive benefits as an anti-glycation ingredient. It boosts cell energy, revitalizes tired skin, supports the skin's natural detoxification process, and tightens weak contours – for a fresh and smooth complexion. It reduces signs of fatigue swiftly, visibly, and lastingly:Repairs skin protein structures that have suffered damage through glycation and protect them from further damage. Optimizes the energy supply in the skin (ATP)and keeps the microcapillary system intact. Diminishes dark eye circles and puffy eyes and prevents spots from forming and relaxes deep expression lines.
Potassium Cetyl Phosphate is an emulsifier that binds water- and oil-based ingredients together. It is thus used to create a smooth and creamy texture. Additionally, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate helps to enhance the absorption of other active ingredients.
Potassium Sorbate is a preservative that prevents the growth of bacteria, fungi, and yeast. It is derived from sorbic acid, a natural compound found in some fruits and berries. Potassium Sorbate is often added to water-based products to extend their shelf life and prevent spoilage.
Propylene Glycol Alginate (PGA) is a natural thickener and stabilizer derived from brown seaweed. It is used to improve a products texture: PGA helps to create a creamy consistency and enhances the viscosity of formulations, improving their spreadability and ease of application. It is also used as an emulsifier, helping to blend oil and water-based ingredients together.
Propylheptyl Caprylate is a lightweight emollient and skin conditioning agent: It is added to improve the products texture and spreadability. Propylheptyl Caprylate is non-greasy and easily absorbed into your skin.
Pentylene Glycol is a humectant and solvent with moisturizing properties: It improves skin hydration by attracting and retaining water molecules. Pentylene Glycol has antimicrobial properties that help to preserve the shelf life of cosmetic products.
Persea Gratissima Oil, also known as avocado oil, is a natural oil that has strong moisturizing and nourishing properties: It is extremly rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants that hydrate and protect your skin from damage caused by free radicals.
Prunus Domestica Seed Extract, also known as plum seed extract, is a natural ingredient with antioxidant and regenerating properties. It is rich in vitamins, minerals, and polyphenols. It smells pleasantly like almond.
Papayas contain an enzyme called papain, which is abundant in the peel, leaves, and orange meat of the fruit. In enzymatic peelings, dead cells are loosened by proteases (e.g., papain or bromelain) by splitting proteins that hold the cell structures of the horny layer together. As excellent natural exfoliators, they can break down proteins (= proteolysis), which results in a softening effect, a sloughing of corneocytes, and finer pores. Exfoliation with papaya enzymes can eliminate dead skin cells for fresher skin, a rosier complexion, and a reduction in wrinkle depth. Ideal for sensitive skin.
Palmitoyl Tripeptide-38 is an anti-ageing peptide that is able to stimulate the production of collagen and other extracellular matrix components to improve skin firmness and elasticity. This results in a firmer skin appearance. Helps to strengthen the skin's moisture barrier and hydrate the skin, brightening the skin and reducing hyperpigmentation, resulting in a more even skin tone. Has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce redness and skin irritation.
Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 is a patented tripeptide with a unique sequence that slows down the skin aging process. It has a dual effect. Firstly, it boosts collagen by mimicking the human body's own mechanism to activate latent transforming growth factor beta, TGF-β (Tissue Growth Factor), a key element in collagen synthesis. It also protects collagen from degradation by inhibiting the expression of matrix metalloproteinases (MMP 1 and 3) and proinflammatory cytokines. (MMP 1 is one of the key enzymes involved in collagen breakdown.) Both activities work synergistically to maintain the complete structural integrity of the skin. Visibly reduces the appearance of wrinkles in age-prone zones by improving elasticity and skin firmness. Reversing signs of photo-aging damage, refining skin surface and pores. It Rejuvenates and smoothens the skin and improves skin texture.
