Allantoin



Allantoin is a product of lactic acid oxidation. This component occurs naturally in our body and is also found in some plants (i.e chamomile). In skincare formulas, it is used as a moisturizing and skin soothing agent. It also speeds up the healing of minor wounds and relieves irritation. Allantoin is one of the staples for maintaining the integrity of sensitive skin.

Arbutin



Arbutin is a component that is used primarily to lighten hyperpigmentation. This is a great alternative to hydroquinone, a more aggressive depigmenting agent that should be used with caution. Arbutin acts gently and mixes well with other skincare ingredients. It also has antioxidant properties, protecting the skin from further UV-damage.

Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate



???

Azelaic acid



Azelaic acid is one of the «gold standard» components in acne treatment. Not only does it exfoliate the skin, but also helps to combat C. acnes bacteria that cause pimples. According to clinical studies, formulas containing 10% of azelaic acid are as effective in treating acne as 5% benzoyl peroxide, but without the side effects of the latter. Azelaic acid creams are also widely used in rosacea treatment.

Betaine



Betaine acts as a moisturizing in gradient. Its small polar molecules are great at retaining moisture. Unlike glycerin, betaine generally does not leave a sticky film on the skin. Due to its ability to soothe skin and calm irritation, betaine is often added to soften harsh products (such as soaps or alkaline cleansers)

Ceramides



Ceramides are responsible for the integrity of our skin's protective barrier. Imagine our skin as a brick wall, where skin cells are the bricks and lipids are the mortar. Ceramides are the main lipids on our skin – so without them the wall would fall apart. Products containing ceramides help to restore protective barrier and retain moisture in the skin, protecting it against dehydration. It is also known that skin with a healthy barrier is less susceptible to breakouts.

Cholesterol



Cholesterol is a natural component of our skin lipid composition. It plays a very important role in the formation and maintenance of the skin's barrier, protecting it from dehydration and harmful microorganisms. As a skincare ingredient, cholesterol helps to restore the damaged hydrolipidic mantle of the skin, eliminate dryness and reduce the number and severity of breakouts caused by dehydration.

Ectoine



Ectoine is an emollient that effectively moisturizes the skin and helps maintain an optimal moisture balance. Recent studies show that ectoine also has antioxidant properties – meaning it can protect the skin from oxidative stress and environmental damage

Ferulic acid



Ferulic acid is one of the best antioxidants used to protect the skin from oxidative stress and photoaging. This acid also «knows» how to stabilize other components. For example, vitamin C is notorious for being unstable. Ferulic acid not only stabilizes Vitamin C in formulations, but also enhances the effects of the vitamin, doubling its ability to protect the skin from UV damage.

Glycolic acid



Glycolic acid is the most potent of the AHA acids. Its small molecular weight makes it easy to get deeper into the skin. This acid smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles and evens out skin texture. Glycolic acts also suppresses melanin production, which makes it a great ingredient for treating hyperpigmentation.

Gluconalactone



Gluconalactone is a polyhydroxy acid (PHA). It is one of the acids found naturally in our skin. As an exfoliant, gluconalactone is excellent for those with sensitive skin, since it is milder than AHA and BHA acids. This PHA acid also provides antioxidant support and hydration, while helps to fight pigmentation spots.

Hyaluronic acid



A hydrating anti-aging ingredient worth paying attention to if you struggle with dry and dehydrated skin. Due to its structure, hyaluronic acid helps retain over 1,000 times its weight in water within the cells of skin. In our body, hyaluronic acid functions as water-retaining agent in various tissues and also acts as a joint lubricant. In skincare, it is used to moisturize the skin and smooth fine lines and wrinkles.

Lecithin



Lecithin is a phospholipid found in egg yolks and in a number of plants. In human body, lecithin is the main building material of cell membranes. Without it, cells simply could not exist. Lecithin accelerates the restoration of barrier functions, fights flaking and softens the skin. It also acts as a conductor for active components (acids, vitamins and antioxidants), promoting better permeability.

Lactic acid



Lactic acid is the second most effective AHA acid after glycolic. Its molecule is slightly larger, so it does not penetrate that deep – which makes it a great exfoliating agent for sensitive skin. Lactic acid not only exfoliates, but also hydrates the skin. It is one of the components of the natural moisturizing factor. Therefore, formulas with this acid tackle several issues simultaneously.

Lactobacillus lysate



Lactobacillus lysate is a probiotic component derived from the bacteria Lactococcus lactis. It helps to strengthen and restore the protective barrier of the skin, and also stimulates the synthesis of antimicrobial peptides. Simply put, lactobacillus lysate strengthens skin immunity, making it more resistant to harmful bacteria. The result: less breakouts, irritation and redness.

Lactobionic acid

Linoleic acid



Linoleic acid is a natural component of the skin's lipid barrier along with ceramides, cholesterol and other fatty acids. Without these essential lipids, the barrier is weakened and damaged - this allows allergens, bacteria and irritants to penetrate deeper layers of the skin. This in turn triggers dryness, itching and irritation. Linoleic acid helps restore the skin's protective barrier while softening stratum corneum. Removing the deficit of linoleic acid in the skin also helps in combating acne.

Mandelic acid


Mandelic acid is one of the mildest AHAs. It provides gentle exfoliation and can be used on a daily basis without the risk of irritation. It is also a great choice for individuals with a combination of acne and sensitive skin. While more potent actives such ac salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide might trigger inflammation, mandelic acid reduces the number of breakouts without evoking sensitivity. In one clinical study, salicylic peels (20%) were compared with mandelic peels (30%). The results demonstrated that salicylic peels are more effective in eliminating acne, but mandelic peels have significantly fewer side effects.

Matrixyl



Matrixyl is a wrinkle-smoothing peptide and a mild alternative to retinol and vitamin C. It stimulates fibroblasts to rebuild extracellular matrix, inducing the synthesis of collagen I and IV, fibronectin and glycosaminoglycans (polysaccharides). Matrixyl is proven to reduce wrinkle depth and even out skin texture.

Niacinamide


Research shows that niacinamide helps regulate sebum production. It also smoothes skin texture and reduces the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, it strengthens the skin's barrier function and fights pigmentation spots. When in concentration of 0.5 to 5%, niacinamide is an effective aid for acne treatment.

NMF



Natural moisturizing factor contains glycine, alanine, arginine, sodium lactate and other amino acids vital for skin health. This complex helps to maintain an optimal level of moisture and strengthens the protective functions of the skin.

Retinol



Retinol is a form of fat-soluble vitamin A. This component is famous for having the most profound clinical evidence backup: we know for sure that it can stimulate collagen and rejuvenate the skin. Retinol is unique in that there are special receptors in our skin that it binds to. Topical application of retinol stimulates the expression of genes responsible for the formation and division of skin cells.

Salicylic acid



Salicylic acid is the only beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) used in cosmetics. Due to its keratolytic and antibacterial properties, it is most commonly used in acne treatments. Salicylic acid formulas are very effective in treating both open and closed comedones and are also great at reducing inflammation.

Squalene



It plays a crucial role in the skin barrier function. Squalene is also involved in cholesterol synthesis and photodamage protection. After the age of thirty, the production of this lipid decreases significantly, leading to dryness and dehydration.

Sodium Retinoyl Hyaluronate



An ester of low molecular weight hyaluronic acid and retinol, the two key anti-aging ingredients. Such a powerful cocktail is truly multifunctional: it protects the skin from dehydration, stimulates collagen synthesis and regulates sebum production.

Trehalose



A natural polysaccharide derived from fungi, algae and bacteria. This component is not only an excellent moisturizer itself, but it also enhances the effectiveness of other components. In combination with hyaluronic acid (which is also in your formula!) trehalose significantly prolongs its moisturizing effect.

Fatty acids



Polyunsaturated fatty acids are natural components found in the skin's lipid barrier, along with ceramides and cholesterol. Without these essential lipids, the barrier is weakened and damaged, allowing allergens, bacteria and irritants to penetrate deeper layers of the skin, causing dryness, itching, and irritation. Linoleic acid allows for barrier restoration, softening and soothing the skin. In addition, replenishing skins linoleic acid reserves helps in eliminating acne.

Panthenol



Panthenol (vitamin B6) is widely known as a remedy for burns, cuts and other kinds of skin damage. It is even used as a skin healing agent after transplantation surgeries. Panthenol can stimulate key skin cells growth such as dermal fibroblasts). It is also a great aid in treating dry and chapped skin. It promotes regeneration of the epidermis and stratum corneum, restoring the protective barrier. Panthenol also relieves skin redness and itching. If your skincare includes products with potent actives (hydroxy acids, retinoids), B6 ​​will help to avoid skin irritation.

Vitamin E



Vitamin E is one of the most abundant antioxidants. It is found naturally in our sebum and protects our skin from oxidative stress. Sunlight exposure and other environmental factors might trigger vitamin E breakdown, making skin more susceptible to oxidative damage.

Using vitamin E skincare helps to replenish antioxidant levels in the skin. It also increases the skin's ability to defend itself against free radicals and sun exposure.

Vitamin C



Vitamin C (or l-ascorbic acid) is an essential antioxidant that helps in preventing premature ageing. It addresses the root cause of wrinkles, collagen loss, by participating in its synthesis. Vitamin C also helps with hyperpigmentation, post-acne marks and skin texture irregularities. As an antioxidant, it absorbs free radicals before they are able to damage the skin.

Vitamin F



Vitamin F is a mix of two fatty acids, linoleic and linolenic. They have antioxidant properties and are excellent skin moisturizers. Fatty acids work best in conjunction with ceramides and cholesterol - this mixture is closest to the composition of our skins natural protective barrier.

Zinc Lactate



Zinc Lactate has a sebum-regulating effect. It normalizes the process of epithelial cells renewal in the ducts of the sebaceous glands and reduces the amount of sebum. This form of zinc also inhibits the growth of bacteria responsible for acne. In addition, Zinc Lactate stimulates collagen synthesis, protecting the skin from premature aging.
