Ingredient callouts

  • This product also contains Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid). It can be an effective active for anti-aging and evening out the skin tone, but in this product it is used for stabilizing other ingredients in the formulation. In this concentration (0.25% - 0.50%) it cannot have a noticeable benefit for the skin.
  • This product includes a form of Retinoids (vitamin A) - retinyl acetate 0.25% - 0.45%, but this type of vitamin A is not very effective. It could in theory help with fine lines and wrinkles, but the effect is most likely minimal.
  • Ceramides (ceramide np 0.30% - 0.55%). Ceramides are a type of lipids that our skin produces itself. They are a building block of the skin's barrier. Ceramides used in skincare are synthetic or extracted from plants. They work well for softening the skin surface and "patch holes" in the skin's barrier.
  • Peptides (acetyl tetrapeptide-9 0.25% - 0.45% and acetyl tetrapeptide-11 0.25% - 0.45%). 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.
  • Humectants (mannitol 1.70% - 2.10%, glycine 0.25% - 0.50%, glycerin 2.50% - 3.00%, glutamic acid 0.25% - 0.50%, glucosamine hcl 0.25% - 0.50%, sodium hyaluronate 0.35% - 0.60%, lactobacillus ferment 0.25% - 0.45%, inositol 0.25% - 0.45%, aspartic acid 0.25% - 0.50% and alanine 0.25% - 0.50%). These ingredients help attract water to the upper layer of the skin and improve the skin hydration.
