Ingredient callouts

  • Adenosine 0.04% (declared). It is a chemical present inside our skin cells. A clinical trial confirmed that topical application of Adenosine in a low concentration can reduce dynamic wrinkles (these are the wrinkles that appear with age in a places where our mimic is the most active, for example, in the corners of the eyes or on the forehead).
  • Panthenol (pro-vitamin B5) at about 1.00% - 1.50% concentration. In this concentration, Panthenol works effectively to improve the skin barrier and reduce inflammation.
  • Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate in this product (0.45% - 1.05%) can also further help improve the skin barrier. It might be able to calm down inflammation and reduce sensitivity. Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate is an active compound from the licorice root.
  • In addition, this product contains Allantoin (0.40% - 1.00%). Allantoin is helpful in wound-healing and can help restore the skin barrier faster. It might also be able to improve scars, but the evidence is not very strong for this.
  • Humectants (sodium hyaluronate 0.05% - 0.15%, panthenol 1.00% - 1.50%, glyceryl glucoside 1.30% - 1.90% and glycerin 3.50% - 5.30%). These ingredients help attract water to the upper layer of the skin and improve the skin hydration.
