Lapacho Bark Extract: Tabebuia Impetiginosa Bark Extract—also known as the tree of life—promotes a slower skin ageing process and increased skin longevity for a more youthful looking skin. Clinical studies show the appearance of wrinkles is decreased and an increase in skin radiance and moisturisation is achieved.
Palmitoyl Tripeptide-38: Palmitoyl Tripeptide-38 is a peptide that stimulates the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid. An efficacious alternative to promoting dermal hyaluronic acid production, palmitoyl tripeptide-38 is an anti-ageing active that has been shown to provide visible volumising and anti-wrinkle effects on the skin.
EPS 3: Derived from marine biotechnology, planktonic exopolysaccharide (EPS 3) is an active ingredient that tightens and volumises facial skin. This ingredient fills wrinkles and creates a tightening effect to lift the skin. It works effectively after 15 minutes and continues to work throughout the day for a lasting ‘V lift effect’.
Hydrolysed tomato skin (lycopene): A potent, topical antioxidant essential for protecting skin against environmental damage and ageing.
Beta Glucan: Recommended for reducing fine lines, promoting wound healing, reducing scaring, and enhancing the penetration of active ingredients.
Sodium hyaluronate (hyaluronic acid): Natural moisturising factor found in the deeper skin layers. Referred to as the ‘natural super moisturiser’, this substance can hold 1000 times its weight in water and is applied topically to deeply hydrate the surface skin by constantly attracting moisture.
Sea Buckthorn: Rich in vitamins A, E, C and K, it is used for its skin rejuvenation and accelerated wound healing properties. Used topically as a natural treatment for dry skin, sensitive skin, acne, redness, scars and burns.
Meadowfoam oil: This botanical oil boosts antioxidant defences in the skin. Studies have shown this oil can inhibit collagen destroying enzymes making it ideal for anti-ageing. Meadowfoam oil closely resembles human sebum to deeply moisturise, aid in ingredient penetration and protect the barrier from moisture loss.
Argan oil: A soothing and nourishing antioxidant oil that promotes healing. It softens and protects the skin whilst reducing the appearance of wrinkles, scars and dryness.
Shea butter: This natural healing substance has been used for hundreds of years as a natural treatment to heal burns, sores, scars, inflammation, and redness. High in fatty acids, shea butter helps retain the skin’s natural moisture content without “choking” it, as mineral oils and petrolatum would.
Squalane: A more stable hydrogenated version of squalene with a considerably longer shelf life. The traditional ‘squalene’ has a different chemical structure and easily oxidises on the skin. This can lead to inflammation and congested pores. However, squalane promotes barrier repair and enhances the penetration of active ingredients. It reduces the appearance of dry skin and helps to address the symptoms of eczema and dermatitis. It is a powerful skin moisturiser with a light texture that rapidly absorbs into the skin.
