Diglucosyl Gallic Acid: Also known as THBG, this acid is an alpha-glucoside derivative of trihydroxy benzoic acid (THBA). Once applied to the skin, THBG is partially converted into THBA by the skin’s microbiome. Both molecules act in synergy acting as antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agents that inhibit melanin production. Clinic studies have shown that this active ingredient visibly brightens skin and helps fade dark spots.
3-O-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid: A stable derivative of Vitamin C encapsulated in niosomes. Effectively promotes collagen production, inhibits the formation of melanin and demonstrates antioxidant properties.
Bacillus Ferment: A bacterial ferment extract obtained from an extremophile microorganism that lives in a flowering plant from the amaranth family (Arthrocnemum macrostachyum), native to coastal areas of the Mediterranean sea. In vivo studies showed that this ferment reinforces the epidermal integrity by improving the intercellular junctions through the plakoglobin (PKG), increases the formation of collagen and inhibits activity of metalloproteinase 1 (MMP1), improves microvascular fragility through the decrease of vascular permeability, and reduces the accumulation of coloured blood products and melanin. Clinical studies have demonstrated that this ferment significantly reduces the appearance of wrinkles, under-eye dark circles and eye puffiness. It also helps lift a sagging eye lid.
Epigallocatechin Gallatyl Glucoside: A derivate of Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG), the main polyphenol of green tea. Demonstrates powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. As a potent free radical scavenger, EGCG combats the effects of environmental aggressors and helps combat signs of premature skin ageing. There is a large amount of clinical evidence showing the efficacy of topical use of EGCG. Clinical studies showed that EGCG has a strong photoprotective role since it downregulates UV-induced oxidative stress and UVB-induced inflammatory responses. Several studies found that EGCG induces significant DNA repair through stimulation of a cytokine (IL-12).
Botanical Blend: A proprietary botanical blend composed of liposome-encapsulated extracts from 6 plants: Pot marigold (Calendula officinalis) flower, Chamomile (Chamomilla recutita) flower, Horsetail (Equisetum arvense), Soybean (Glycine max) seed, Poria mushroom (Poria cocos) and Sage (Salvia officinalis). Shows strong soothing, toning and regenerative properties.
Phospholipids: Major building components in the structure of cellular membranes. These natural, skin-identical ingredients demonstrate excellent moisturising, repairing and protective properties.
Glycosaminoglycans: Polysaccharides naturally present in the skin as major components of the extracellular matrix. Exhibit excellent moisturizing and skin regenerating properties. Supports the collagen network by inhibiting matrix metalloproteinase (MMP), enzymes responsible for collagen degradation. Increases skin resistance to physical damage and enhances skin barrier function. Clinical studies have shown that glycosaminoglycans reduce the appearance of dark circles, rosacea and skin redness.
Lecithin: A vegetable-based phosphatidylcholine, a natural part of all cell membranes. Shows emollient, moisturising and smoothing properties.
Hyaluronic Acid: A full spectrum of different molecular weights (very low, low and medium) of pure hyaluronic acid working in synergy. Shows multiple activities: improves skin moisture, strengthens barrier function, helps to retain and maintain skin elasticity, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and restores skin suppleness.
Squalane: Derived from Mediterranean olive oil, this botanical ingredient mimics natural skin lipids. Replenishes moisture, prevents moisture loss and restores skin's suppleness. Squalane also acts as an antioxidant to help protect the skin from damaging free radicals.
Glycolipids: Biomimetic lipid molecules with restructuring, repairing and protective properties. Strengthen the barrier function and boost hydro-retaining capacity of the skin.
Rhamnose: A natural sugar molecule obtained by bacterial fermentation. Inhibits inflammatory mediators and thus helps protect the skin from environmental factors that accelerate premature skin ageing (inflamm-ageing). Reduces skin redness and stimulates the release of β-endorphins to soothe the skin and restore its comfort.
Ornithine: An amino acid encapsulated in ionosomes. By activation or up-regulation of the transcription factor HIF-1 (Hypoxia Inducible Factor), ornithine restores fatty tissue volume and exhibits a lipofilling-like effect.
Yeast: An extract of yeast rich in amino-acids, essential minerals, beta-glucan and vitamins. Possesses anti-inflammatory, revitalising and protective properties. Increases cell respiration and metabolism, stimulates oxygen consumption and enhances skin repair.
Plant-derived esters: A blend of 4 esters (Polyglyceryl-6 Laurate, Apricot Kernel Oil Polyglyceryl-6 Esters, Polyglyceryl-10 Oleate and Polyglyceryl-10 Dipalmitate) made from raw materials of 100% plant origin. Possesses excellent emollient, skin-conditioning and protective properties.
Adenosine monophosphate (AMP): A source of intracellular energy. Shows energising, repairing and skin-conditioning properties.
Uracil: One of the four nucleobases of RNA. Helps carry out the synthesis of many enzymes necessary for cell function. Enhances skin revitalisation and repair.
