(Educational information from in-vitro and/or in-vivo and/or ex-vivo studies on ingredients that does not represent the functions of the concept or the products)
1. Purified yeast extract (Candida saitoana) – biotechnology
A purified ingredient extracted from yeast that boosts the autophagy system of defective cells, reinforces the cell detoxification process and improves the texture of the skin (in-vitro studies).
2. Phragmites kharka extract (a large aquatic grass native to tropical regions) and poria cocos extract (a fungus known as fu ling tuckahoe)
In vivo testing has shown accelerated skin barrier repair, reduction in UV-generated erythema and anti-itching benefits. In vitro studies show it helps against loss of cell viability and maintain the cell’s energy level as well as it protects the skin’s cellular structure and barrier function. Further work has demonstrated a strong activity against the effects of hyperosmotic stress and photosensitivity.
3. Encapsulated brightening peptide inhibitor of tyrosinase
An innovative biomimetic encapsulated brightening peptide that works at the heart of the problem by inhibiting tyrosinase activity and melanin synthesis (in-vitro studies).
4. Linseed seed extract (Linum usitatissimum)
Helps counteract the drying effects of environmental factors. Optimizes the skin’s barrier function. Helps to maintain a younger and healthier looking skin. (in-vivo studies). Optimizes the skin lipidic homeostasis by boosting the synthesis of the stratum corneum intercellular lipids (ex-vivo studies).
5. Inhibitor of tyrosinase (in-vitro and in vivo studies no cytotoxicity)
New novel skin brightening agent with increased efficacy and improved safety. This molecule also has a photoprotective effect.
6. Tripeptide that favors the natural defense mechanism of the skin
A new peptide that enhances the skin’s natural defense mechanisms by inducing defensins (key components of the skin’s innate immune system) in vitro studies. Protects the skin from external microbial invasion, increases moisturization❖ and reduces redness (in vivo studies).
7. Cranberry butter
Exceptionally rich in essential fatty acids, Cranberry butter is considered to have anti-aging properties by giving back to the skin its elasticity, suppleness and ability to protect itself.
8. Olive Leaf Extract
Anti free radicals, antioxidant and antibacterial.
9. Uccuba butter
Ucuuba Butter is considered to have anti-aging properties and can be used to replenish tone and moisture dry and mature skin. Rich in essential fatty acids.
10. Brown algae extract
Contains exceptionally high amounts of antioxidants and fatty acids Omega 3 and 6. Optimizes the skin’s barrier function. Helps to maintain a younger and healthier looking skin.
