Preserves connective tissue that gives firm & youthful ski
Minimises redness and blotchiness. Niacinamide reduces inflammation, which helps ease redness from eczema, acne, and other inflammatory skin conditions.
Skin structure – Niacinamide helps build collagen, a type of protein that keeps your skin firm and healthy.
Skin barrier – Niacinamide promotes ceramide (lipid) production, which helps retain moisture. This is beneficial for all skin types, especially if you have eczema or mature skin.
Minimises pore appearance – Keeping skin smooth and moisturised has a secondary benefit — a natural reduction in pore size over time.
Regulates sebum production. Sebum is the oily substance produced by the skin. Niacinamide decreases oil production, which contributes to decreasing pore size and acne.
Protects against sun damage. Niacinamide can concurrently rebuild healthy skin cells while also protecting them from damage caused by ultraviolet rays.
Treats hyperpigmentation. Pigment (melanin) is produced in the deep layer of the epidermis, from where it is transported to the superficial layers. This causes increased pigmentation. Niacinamide decreases this transport mechanism. The increased collagen production, from niacinamide, further aids in this.
Minimizes fine lines and wrinkles.
Protects against oxidative stress. Niacinamide has an antioxidant effect, which also protects the skin from environmental stresses, such as sunlight, pollution, and toxins.
Treats acne. Niacinamide is helpful for severe acne, especially inflammatory forms like papules and pustules. Over time, you may see fewer lesions and improved skin texture
Kyotorphin is a small peptide that controls how negative stimuli are experienced by the skin (skin irritation)
It tones down the nerve response to sensitivity
Genistein is a plant derivative that is similar to estrogen
It acts on estrogen receptors, but does not pose the risk for breast cancer like estrogen does
Genistein has shown great results for skin elasticity, photoaging, and skin cancer prevention.
Genistein helps improve skin dryness and wrinkles
Increases collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production
Thickens the dermis and epidermis
Increases the moisture content of the skin
Decreases cellular ageing
The human tri-peptide GHK has multiple biological actions
It stimulates fibroblasts to manufacture collagen and hyaluronic acid
Improves skin healing
Decreases wrinkle depth
Strengthens the dermal matrix
Increased skin hydration
Decrease in skin roughness
Increases skin firmness and elasticity
Improves cellular genetic health
Helps to prolong cellular lifespan by ensuring genomic (genes’) stability
Repairs loss of firmness and elasticity
Moisturises and refines the skin grain
Evens skin tone by fading redness and age spots
While the name might sound scary, harsh, and synthetic, Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is actually a natural molecule produced in our bodies! Acid might make you think of burning and dehydrating, but Hyaluronic Acid is actually incredibly effective in doing the complete opposite – soothing, and hydrating. This amazing little molecule forms part of our skin’s own NMF’s (Natural Moisturising Factors) and can retain up to 1000 times its own weight in moisture!
Hyaluronic Acid penetrates the upper layers of skin, attracts moisture from the environment and holds onto it providing great, long-lasting hydration to your skin cells. This is what sets Hyaluronic Acid apart from products that provide only temporary hydration
Hyaluronic acid helps the skin maintain moisture and helps the tissue regeneration process involved in healing wounds
Also known as cogon grass root extract and Japanese Blood Grass Root Extract
Targets dehydrated skin and helps improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Improves internal housekeeping ability of the cell
Helps the cell’s own ability to keep moisture in the skin
Penetrates into sebaceous glands
Assists in treating acne
Creates gentle exfoliation action
Has direct effect on fibroblast function
Increases collagen and support proteins in the skin
Wrinkles visually less pronounced
Creates smoother skin
Decreases skin roughness
Placed in partnership with 100% pure retinol
Retinol is an effective anti-oxidant
Retinol is therefore easily oxidized by air and free radicals
Retinol is enveloped by a microscopic fatty bubble, called a liposome
The liposome protects the retinol from oxidation
Once in the skin, it easily gets transported into the cell
It increases your scalps production of cellular binding elements which blocks the effects of alopecia
It increases blood stimulation within the scalp, allowing more nourishment to reach the dermal papilla cells, which will produce healthier growing hair.
Stimulates the elongation of hair follicles
stimulates hair growth
Support Enhanced Cell Proliferation
Evidence suggests that oleanolic acid may work by stimulating the reproduction of hair matrix cells
Chrysin and N-hydroxysuccinimide, work together by improving circulation and diluting the accumulation of blood pigmentation that can cause discolouration to appear on the skin. As well as helping dark circles, they also help to boost the production of collagen in the skin and improve elasticity and suppleness.
It is an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
Is found in citrus fruits like oranges and grapefruit
Reduces dark circles under the eyes
Lowers the filtration rate of capillaries, and less blood flowing though capillaries close to the surface of the skin potentially means less dark bluish discoloration under the eyes
It helps prevent puffiness and reduces bags under the eyes
Also helps reduce redness and irritation by providing healing effects without clogging the pores.
