Ingredient callouts

  • This product contains acids (gluconolactone 1.30% - 1.90%). Their concentration is low, and they will not have a strong exfoliating effect. Instead, they work to support the skin natural acid mantle and to attract water (as humectants). PHAs (gluconolactone) especially are great for improving skin hydration. They might be even able to stimulate the production of skin's natural humectants and support the healthy skin microbiome.
  • This product contains Bakuchiol (0.05% - 0.25%). It is a plant extract that is has a similar effect to that of Retinoids but with less irritation. Bakuchiol can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin tone, reduce clogged pores and blemishes, and reduce inflammation.
  • Humectants (glycerin 0.45% - 1.05% and hyaluronic acid 0.50% - 1.20%). These ingredients help attract water to the upper layer of the skin and improve the skin hydration.
