Here’s a look at the key ingredients and their benefits:
ALOE VERA LEAF JUICE
This is the first ingredient on every label. There’s a reason! This soothes and hydrates your skin. Other benefits include polysaccharides, amino acids, and minerals. These prepare the skin to absorb water and other hydrating ingredients in your skin care routine.
This ingredient contributes to the Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF), which is a group of ingredients created by the skin that maintains hydration in the outside layer of the skin. Sodium PCA is more successful in moisturizing the skin than many other ingredients commonly used in popular personal care products.
Soothe the skin and get a refreshing feeling throughout the routine with this ingredient. If you have sensitive skin, this is especially beneficial. It also reduces swelling and puffiness. Cucumbers also contain electrolytes, which prevent dehydration. They can also help in skin and eye care with premature aging.
This botanical extract is found in all of our skin care products. Lavender Extract adds to the soothing, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial benefits of the line. This will help nourish the skin, so you have a healthier and cleaner feel.
This is the most powerful moisturizer available for cosmetic and personal care items. Specifically, it is a sugar found naturally in our skin that holds water and helps keep it hydrated and healthy. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) brings moisture to your skin’s surface. Just like collagen, the amount in our body decreases as we age. This ingredient enhances the benefits of firming and smoothing or soothing and protecting the skin by providing softness and smoothing the skin. It holds an incredible amount of water to amplify the skin’s ability to retain moisture. From the moment you begin cleansing until you finish with the moisturizer, the Hyaluronic Acid draws in moisture. Fine lines and wrinkles can diminish in appearance when your skin is plump from full hydration. Another plus, Hyaluronic Acid works on any skin type and acts as a shield. That is one reason experts refer to this ingredient as a hero.
This ingredient is an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) that exfoliates your skin and removes dead cells. This helps deposit the key ingredients from the line into your skin to reveal a clearer, more even complexion. Glycolic acid has the smallest sized molecules of all AHA’s. Because of its size, it can easily penetrate the skin. It exfoliates by speeding up cell turnover, it also stimulates the skin to create more collagen. We all LOVE collagen — this is the protein that gives your skin its elasticity and firmness. Studies show that Glycolic Acid is also safe for all ages and skin types. This helps your skin learn how to retain moisture. It is also widely used for dryness, hyperpigmentation, and acne. What’s even better is it increases the penetration of other skin care ingredients making your other skin products stronger.
These help prevent the aging process in the dermis. The dermis is the thicker layer of the skin that contains blood vessels, sweat glands, nerves, hair follicles, and other structures. The dermis can be damaged by UV rays, pollution, and toxins, but peptides help create a stronger barrier against elements that can damage our skin. Peptides are amino acids that makeup certain proteins needed by the skin. Collagen is made of three polypeptide chains, so adding products with peptides can stimulate your skin to make collagen. They also promote smoothing, toning, and elasticity. Peptide blends will also help activate genes that help with cell renewal and regeneration. Activating genes is like scrubbing your scalp to activate hair follicles to promote healthy hair. Peptides can also help ease inflammation and repair damaged skin.
We ensure our products are protected with a preservative system that is non-irritating, vegan-friendly, and that the products will work properly without worrying about bacterial, yeast, and mold growth.
