Ingredient callouts

  • A good concentration of Niacinamide (2.30% - 2.80%). 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.
  • Ceramides (ceramide ap 0.30% - 0.55%, ceramide eop 0.35% - 0.60%, ceramide as 0.30% - 0.55%, ceramide ns 0.35% - 0.60% and ceramide np 0.35% - 0.65%). 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.
  • Adenosine 0.50% - 0.75%. It is a compound that in involved in many biological processes inside the skin cells. According one high-quality clinical trial, topical Adenosine in low concentrations can somewhat help improve "deep wrinkles" - the wrinkles that appear with age in places where our faces are most dynamic (for example, on the forehead or in the corners of the eyes).
  • Actives derived from an extract of the Centella Asiatica plant (also known as Gotu Kola) - madecassoside 0.30% - 0.55% 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 0.55% - 0.85%. Panthenol helps strengthen the skin barrier, improve hydration and reduce inflammation in skin.
  • Humectants (sodium acetylated hyaluronate 0.10% - 0.20%, hyaluronic acid 0.15% - 0.25%, hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid 0.15% - 0.30%, sodium hyaluronate crosspolymer 0.15% - 0.30%, hydrolyzed glycosaminoglycans 0.25% - 0.50%, glutamic acid 0.30% - 0.55%, aspartic acid 0.30% - 0.55%, arginine 0.30% - 0.55%, sodium hyaluronate 0.30% - 0.55%, glyceryl acrylate/acrylic acid copolymer 0.50% - 0.70%, panthenol 0.55% - 0.85% and glycerin 3.00% - 3.70%). These ingredients help attract water to the upper layer of the skin and improve the skin hydration.
