Ingredient callouts

  • A good concentration of Niacinamide (2.00% (declared)). Niacinamide is a well-studied multi-tasking active. It is stable, and can work well in almost any hydrating formulation. There is solid evidence that Niacinamide can help support skin barrier, regulate oil production and reduce acne and clogged pores. It also helps to fight photodamage and improve the skin tone, reducing pigmentation marks.
  • Adenosine 0.15% - 0.65%. 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 4.60% - 6.80% concentration. In this concentration, Panthenol works effectively to improve the skin barrier and reduce inflammation.
  • In addition, this product contains Allantoin (1.40% - 2.10%). 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 26.00% - 38.00%, panthenol 4.60% - 6.80%, glycerin 3.40% - 5.00%, pitera 95.00% (declared), betaine 8.20% - 12.40% and allantoin 1.40% - 2.10%). These ingredients help attract water to the upper layer of the skin and improve the skin hydration.
