Ingredient callouts

  • A good concentration of Niacinamide (1.60% - 2.00%). 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.
  • This product includes a form of Retinoids (vitamin A) - retinyl palmitate 0.15% - 0.25%, 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.
  • Peptides (palmitoyl tripeptide-1 0.10% - 0.25% and acetyl hexapeptide-8 0.15% - 0.25%). 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 (acetyl hexapeptide-8 0.15% - 0.25%, sodium lactate 0.15% - 0.30%, soluble collagen 0.20% - 0.35%, glyceryl acrylate/acrylic acid copolymer 0.25% - 0.50%, arginine 0.30% - 0.55% and glycerin 5.10% - 6.20%). These ingredients help attract water to the upper layer of the skin and improve the skin hydration.
