Ingredient callouts

  • This product contains acids (gluconolactone 1.20% - 1.70%). 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.
  • Actives derived from an extract of the Centella Asiatica plant (also known as Gotu Kola) - madecassic acid 0.05% - 0.20%, asiaticoside 0.05% - 0.20% and asiatic acid 0.05% - 0.20% The Centella Asiatica Actives, even in low concentration, can help reduce inflammation in skin, strengthen the skin barrier and reduce photodamage. They can also help to decrease scarring.
  • An effective concentration of Panthenol (pro-vitamin B5) - about 0.40% - 0.95%. Panthenol helps strengthen the skin barrier, improve hydration and reduce inflammation in skin.
  • Humectants (sodium hyaluronate 0.15% - 0.50%, panthenol 0.40% - 0.95%, arginine 0.15% - 0.65%, betaine 3.00% - 4.50% and glycerin 0.60% - 1.35%). These ingredients help attract water to the upper layer of the skin and improve the skin hydration.
