Ingredient callouts

  • Ceramides (ceramide ng 0.35% - 0.60%). Ceramides are an important part of our natural skin barrier. The Ceramides used in skincare are synthetic or come from plants. They help soften the skin and can help "fill the gaps" in the skin barrier, keeping the skin hydrated and resilient for longer.
  • Peptides (palmitoyl hexapeptide-12 0.05% - 0.15%). There are many different kind of Peptides and they are naturally present in our skin. They all are a combination of aminoacids. Some of them work as natural antibiotics, promote wound-healing and production of collagen. The science is still not settled on how effective Peptides are in skincare, but it is very likely that they have a benefit. They might help restore the skin barrier and fight the signs of aging. At the very least, Peptides work as humectants: they attract water to the upper layer of the skin and improve its hydration.
  • Another helpful ingredient in this product is Linoleic Acid. It is one of the fatty acids naturally present in skin. It is part of the skin barrier. Preliminary research shows that it might be able to reduce clogged pores.
  • Humectants (urea 0.45% - 0.70%, trehalose 0.30% - 0.50%, sodium pca 0.50% - 0.75%, imperata cylindrica root extract 3.00% (declared), glycerin 12.00% (declared) and sodium hyaluronate 0.10% - 0.20%). These ingredients help attract water to the upper layer of the skin and improve the skin hydration.
