HYALURONIC ACID (SODIUM HYALURONATE)
A hydrophilic molecule, Hyaluronic acid attracts and binds up to 1,000 times its molecular weight in water, reduces
TEWL (trans-epidermal water loss), and helps to keep skin plump and firm. Sodium Hyaluronate is a glycosaminoglycan
found in the extracellular space that resists compression by absorbing significant amounts of water.
HYDROXYPINACALONE RETINOATE / ESTER OF TRETINOIN (VITAMIN A), 0.05%
A cosmetic grade ester of ATRA (All-trans Retinoic Acid), is unique in that it processes innate retinoic acid activity,
binding directly with retinoid receptors without the need for metabolic breakdown to more biologically active forms. It
has been demonstrated to be more stable and cause less skin irritation than retinol.
NIACINAMIDE (VITAMIN B3), 4%
Promotes microcirculation, strengthens the skin’s outer layers, improves elasticity, and curbs redness and irritation.
Helpful for treating dry skin due to its ability to increase barrier lipid levels. Has anti-inflammatory properties (which
helps reduce redness), anti-bacterial properties, and melanin inhibiting properties.
Found as a natural component of chamomile, Bisabolol is an eective anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory ingredient,
helpful in soothing red, irritated skin.
Used in the synthesis of natural skin sterols essential for maintaining skin barrier function, Squalane, derived from
olives, is a biological component of human sebum and is therefore very skin friendly. It is an excellent moisturizer that
does not leave a heavy, greasy residue on the skin.
A substance known for its healing, soothing, and anti-irritating properties. This ingredient softens skin and stimulates
the formation of healthy tissue. Helps eliminate chapping and cracking, leaving skin silky, smooth, and healthy-looking.
