These work in two ways:
Firstly, to strengthen skin and reduce inflammation, so skin can work optimally.
Then, address sun-damage: fade uneven pigmentation, restore collagen and elastin and retain good hydration.
Vitamin A (Retinyl Palmitate), The ester of retinol and a powerful antioxidant which helps stimulate new skin cell growth and improves UV damaged skin, fading melasma and hyper-pigmented areas of skin. It helps to normalise the skin sebum balance.
Niacinamide (B3) This works longer-term to strengthen the skin, reduce enlarged pores and fade hyper-pigmentation.
Vitamin E Helps repair skin barrier and improve function, whilst boosting other vitamins.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) and Sodium Hyaluronate (SH): Necessary to achieve well-hydrated skin. Produced naturally in skin, but it reduces markedly with age. The effects of naturally extracted HA, (from algae), are optimised by adding smaller molecule HA and SH. This combination allows hydration on the skin surface, but importantly, deeper down in the skin layers too. Without combining these, HA can actually pull water from the skin, in dry weather. When skin is well-hydrated, it is much easier to reduce inflammation and repair damage.
Syn-Coll: A precious peptide (actually a tripeptide!) made up of amino acids, essential in restoring collagen in skin. Studies show that 1-2% in a product is the optimum amount. (A number of active ingredients actually work better at lower percentages). Here at 2%.
C0Q-10: Ubiquinone - one of the most significant lipid antioxidants, naturally produced by the body, often already depleted by 30. It regenerates cells and prevents the generation of free-radicals. Importantly, it can significantly help restore collagen and elastin. It is often very low in people over fifty and after illness.
Panthenol (B5): A humectant, helping to keep skin plumped and hydrated
Rose Hydrosol: Rehydrates dry skin and balances sebum production; helpful for acne and dry skin. Reduces UV damage and hyperpigmentation.
Algae Hydrosol: Very high in natural hyaluronic acid, for moisturising skin. Contains natural UV protection.
Rose Absolute oil: This is remarkably good at healing scars - including those left by acne, hyper-pigmentation and sun damage.
Frankincense oleoresin: This contains Boswellic acid (the essential oil does not), excellent for photo-aged skin and calms inflammation. Also useful for skin prone to acne.
Aloe Vera: A good moisturiser and skin-soother, used in combination to hep fight collagenase, which destroys collagen.
Plant Keratin: This helps sooth skin and improve hydration. A good alternative to animal keratin.
Green Tea Extract: A powerful antioxidant, thanks to the epigallocatechingallate (EGCG, especially good for UV damaged skin. A natural source of vitamin: B, C and E, it helps prevent free radical damage, protects and revitalises skin and has antibacterial and antioxidant properties.
Calendula Extract: Very soothing and moisturising due to the high level of carotenoids; especially good for sensitive skin.
Chamomile Extract: Due to its high levels of a-bisbolol, a sesquiterpene, this is very soothing and anti-inflammatory; good for acne and scaly patches.
Cornflower Extract: High in flavonoids and sesquiterpenes, this keeps the skin supple. High in polyphenols which balance sebum production. A good antioxidant.
Evening Primrose Extract: Especially good at calming any redness and skin irritation.
