Hyaluronic Acid: A full spectrum of different molecular weights (very low, low and medium) of pure hyaluronic acid and niosome-encapsulated hyaluronic acid working in synergy. Shows multiple activities: improves skin moisture, strengthens barrier function, helps to retain and maintain skin elasticity, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and restores skin suppleness.
Kaempferol: A plant-derived flavonoid encapsulated in niosomes. Demonstrates anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and protective properties. Inhibits hyaluronidase, an enzyme that breaks down hyaluronic acid during tissue remodelling, inflammation and skin ageing.
Succinic Acid: An acid derived from a vegetable stock using sustainable yeast-based technology. Naturally present in mitochondria with an important role in the Krebs cycle. Demonstrate antioxidant, anti-microbial and collagen-boosting properties. Supports skin’s natural renewal by inhibiting enzymes involved in collagen degradation and increasing oxygen consumption.
Pseudoalteromonas Ferment: A biotechnological marine alternative to hyaluronic acid, composed of carbohydrate (sugar) residues obtained by fermentation of marine bacteria (Pseudoalteromonas sp.). Improves skin moisture, decreases skin roughness and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Phospholipids: Major building components in the structure of cellular membranes. These natural, skin-identical ingredients demonstrate excellent moisturising, repairing and protective properties.
Beta-Glucan: A yeast-derived polysaccharide with multiple actions: antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and skin-soothing. Enhances natural defence mechanisms, boosts cellular respiration and promotes natural repair process and wound healing.
Shiso (Perilla frutescens): Shiso, also known as Japanese mint, is a plant rich in polyphenols (particularly rosmarinic acid) and triterpenoids (particularly ursolic acid). We use an extract obtained from Shiso leaf which demonstrates excellent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-allergic properties. Shiso leaf has been used for years in Kampo medicine due to strong detox properties, and its ability to soothe sensitive skin and prevent skin reactivity.
Yeast: A filtrate of the lysate (the solution consisting of the material released from cell lysis; cellular disruption) obtained by the fermentation of yeast (Saccharomyces). Rich in amino acids, essential minerals, beta-glucan and vitamins. Possesses anti-inflammatory, revitalising and protective properties. Increases cell respiration and metabolism, stimulates oxygen consumption and enhances skin repair.
Glycosphingolipids: Lipid molecules naturally present in cell membranes. Moisturise, protect and smooth the skin while rebuilding lipid barrier.
Glucomannan: A polysaccharide obtained from Konjac root. Exhibits moisturising, skin conditioning and protecting properties.
Glycerin: A vegetable-derived molecule naturally present in the skin. Acts as an excellent humectant, a substance that attracts moisture from the environment and increases the amount of water in the surface layers of the skin.
Magnolol: A polyphenol derived from the bark of magnolia. Shows anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and antioxidant properties.
Algin (Alginic acid): A polysaccharide derived from brown algae. Demonstrates excellent water-binding properties. Used to enhance product thickness and texture.
Plant-derived esters: A blend of 3 esters (Apricot Kernel Oil Polyglyceryl-6 Esters, Polyglyceryl-6 Oleate and Polyglyceryl-10 Oleate) made from raw materials of 100% plant origin. Possesses excellent emollient, skin-conditioning and protective properties.
Leuconostoc/Radish Root: A probiotic derived from the radish root fermented with the lactic acid bacteria, Leuconostoc kimchii. Demonstrates excellent anti-microbial and preserving properties. In addition, it provides moisturising and skin-conditioning benefits.
