Ceramide

Ceramides are essential in retaining your skin’s moisture, building a natural barrier that locks in hydration for a supple complexion. If your skin lacks ceramides, you’ll start to see dry skin and wrinkles appear. Ceramide levels also dip considerably as one ages, so it’s important to use skincare that contains a sufficient amount of ceramides to ‘top up’ what your skin lacks.

Chamomile 

Like Calendula, Chamomile is widely known for its anti-inflammatory and skin soothing properties. However, it’s also an effective conditioning agent and skin rejuvenator that greatly helps dry skin.

 

If you experience uncomfortably tight / taut skin caused by dryness or are prone to flaky skin that shows up beneath your makeup, you’ll be glad to know that chamomilla extracts will restore supple skin in no time!

CoEnzyme Q10

CoEnzyme Q10 functions as a strong antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties that neutralize harmful free radicals, protects the skin from damaging UV rays, harsh environmental exposure and daily stress. Also, Coenzyme Q10 has a small molecular size that penetrates easily into skin cells to effectively boost skin repair and cells regeneration.

Geranium Oil

Glycolic Acid

Glycolic Acid is the smallest of all acids, yet is the one that produces superior results. Glycolic Acid helps to eliminate the build-up of oils and dead skin cells on your skin. In doing so, pores are unclogged to prevent future blemishes. Glycolic Acid also works to regenerate collagen, thicken epidermis and dermis, and even helps to even out skin tone.

Green Tea

Lactic Acid is known to be hydrating and great at increasing the natural barrier lipids in the outer layer of skin that helps to reduce fine lines. It also contains brightening and lightening properties that fade post-blemish dark spots; and its renowned oil-control properties that keep pimples at bay!

Niacinamide

Also known as Vitamin B3, niacinamide is an effective ingredient with various benefits that range from pore minimizing qualities to the reduction of fine lines and dullness. Here are some of its many amazing features:

 

  • Minimizes pores, lines and wrinkles – Improves your skin’s lipid barrier and increases cell differentiation, producing more collagen and elastin in your skin so you have a youthful-looking complexion with refined pores.

 

  • Prevents moisture loss – When your skin’s epidermal lipid barrier is improved, it works better in retaining your skin’s moisture level and prevents Trans Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL). Skin then becomes well-hydrated and strong.

 

  • Prevents redness and blotchiness – Improves your skin’s structure, which leads to the reduction of redness (especially helpful for those with inflamed blemishes), blotchiness, as well as sensitivity caused by environmental factors. 

 

  • Reduces hyperpigmentation – Suppresses melanin caused by frequent UV rays—so you have less freckles and age spots.

 

  • Rids dull and sallow skin – Reverses the signs of aging and tired skin by reducing the negative impact of oxidative stress.
