- Brightens and reduces uneven skin tone
- Weightless hydration
- Prevents free radical damage with the use of antioxidants
Amla is prized in South Asia for its multiple uses. As an anti-oxidant it eliminates free-radical induced damage of the skin. It is a natural skin lightener, brightening the skin without bleaching, and is an excellent alternative to hydroquinone. Finally, it inhibits the breakdown of collagen, helping to defy aging skin.
Daisy flower extract has been shown to inhibit the production of tyrosine (an amino acid necessary for the formation of melanin), and it is another excellent alternative to hydroquinone.
Squalane is an anti-oxidant, evens skin tone and pigmentation, and helps to minimize the appearance of fine lines.
Jojoba oil is chemically similar to human sebum, but is non-comedogenic. It contains high levels of vitamin E and is an antioxidant.
Mango contains high levels of vitamin C and anti-oxidants. The butter derived from the fruit softens the skin and prevents moisture loss.
Panthenol (vitamin B5) penetrates deeply into the skin to provide long-term moisturization of the skin while improving barrier function.
Tocopherol (vitamin E) is an antioxidant, an anti-inflammatory, and moisturizer.
Licorice root is a safe and natural skin lightening agent. It is one of several ingredients available as alternatives to hydroquinone to lighten areas of hyperpigmentation on the skin.
Hibiscus flower extract helps to increase skin elasticity. Citric and malic acids found within the plant provide gentle exfoliation of the skin, which helps to even skin tone. It is rich in antioxidants, astringent, and anti-inflammatory. Finally, is possesses excellent moisturizing properties.
Ubiquinone is a powerful antioxidant naturally produced by the body. It decreases with age, and therefore it is commonly used in skin care products as an anti-aging ingredient. Ubiquinone penetrates the skin readily to reduce free radical damage. It assists in building collagen and elastin, and helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines.
Grapefruit oil can reduce excess oiliness while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
