As it relates to your skin, the lower layer of the skin contains collagen and it accounts for 75% of the weight of our skin. Essentially this protein is the cement that holds the bricks of our skin together and is responsible for skin elasticity. As we age our body loses collagen and this along with gravity causes our skin to drop and wrinkles start to show.
Collagenase: Enzyme responsible for breaking down collagen.
Cyclomethicone: Works as a skin conditioner and forms a protective barrier. It also helps with temporary filling on wrinkles and fine lines.
Decyl Glucoside: Anionic surfactant for mild but effective cleansing power. It’s soft on skin and maintains skin balance at the same time without causing dryness.

E-O

Ethylhexylglycerin: Works as a skin conditioner and also acts as a natural preservative.
Glycation: A process where sugar in our blood bonds with protein molecules and create clusters called AGES (Advanced Glycation End Products). Glycation results in losing elasticity of the skin and also appearance of wrinkles.
Glycerin: A non-irritating, odorless, colorless compound that helps with skin’s water retention capabilities. It also forms a barrier against moisture loss.
Glyceryl Oleate: Helps to form emulsions by reducing the surface tension of the substances to be emulsified. It also functions as a skin conditioning agent. It is produced from oils that contain high concentrations of oleic acid, such as olive oil, peanut oil, teaseed oil or pecan oil.
Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil: It consists primarily of triglycerides of oleic, linoleic and linolenic and saturated acids with great anti-oxidant properties.
Glyco-Ceramides: Plant derived lipid that helps with skin’s water retention capacity.
Hyaluronic Acid (Hyaluronan) – HA: A naturally occurring substance in the body also known as the youth factor. It moisturizes the skin from within and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Elastin, second skin fiber other than collagen, needs to be bathed in water and HA provides that environment. As we age HA level significantly decrease and as a results elastin will start to dry out resulting in a dry looking and wrinkled skin. HA also aids with joint flexibility and acts as a cushion for joints.
Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein: It has a film-forming and skin conditioning effect to better help with skin coverage.
Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein: It is a unique hydrating complex offering a combination of moisture-balancing and film-forming properties that work synergistically to give skin a smoother softer feel.
Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein: With its film-forming properties it helps keep skin smooth and soft. It also helps with retaining moisture.
• It also helps with collagen production and reduces pigmentation and age/sun spots and promotes a bright and radiant skin appearance.
L-ascorbic acid: This is the most effective form of Vitamin C. It works as an effective anti-oxidant and free radical scavenger. This form (unlike other forms such as manganese and calcium salts) is easily absorbed by the skin with proven anti-aging effects.
Lecithin: Used as an emollient and stabilizing agent. It also has softening and soothing effects with good moisturizing properties.
Lycopene: A powerful anti-oxidant found in red fruits and vegetables that help protect the skin & improve its texture.
Malus Domestica Fruit Cell Culture: From a rate apple in Switzerland, it has age delaying effects on skin cells and promotes its longevity. It also protects cells from stress and decreases wrinkles.
Monarda Didyma (Bergamot) Extract: Helps relieve stressed skin and it does have antiseptic effects as well. It’s also known to have healing effect on skin rashes and clear excessive oil on skin.
Octyl Cocoate: Works as a skin conditioner otherwise known as Coconut Fatty Acid.

P-Z

Palmitoyl Oligopeptide: It stimulates collagen and elastin production. Also reduces wrinkle depth by increasing HA (Hyaluronic Acid) production.
Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-3: It has anti-inflammatory effects by suppressing the production of interleukins that trigger inflammation. It also reduces UV induced inflammation.
Pentapeptide-3: A novel skin rejuvenation compound with anti-wrinkle effects. It has similar or better results than retinol without the potential side effects.
Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil: Avocado Oil is rich in triglycerides of oleic and it helps with age/sun spots. Containing high amounts of Sterolins, it softens and moisturizes the skin. It absorbs easily into deep skin tissue, especially for more mature skins.
Phenoxyethanol: Prevents or retards microbial growth, and thus protects cosmetics and personal care products from spoilage. It may also be used in fragrances.
Polysorbate 60: It helps other ingredients to dissolve in a solvent in which they would not normally dissolve. They also help to form emulsions by reducing the surface tension of the substances to be emulsified.
