Licorice Root Extract helps reduce the appearance of redness.
Features and Benefits:
Glycolic Acid is an alpha hydroxy acid derived from sugar cane.
• Reduces appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots with prolonged use.
• Detoxifies pores by thoroughly eliminating dirt and oil, therefore preventing blackheads and comedones (white heads).
• Retexturizes dull and decongested skin by removing dead skin cells and impurities.
• Improves overall texture and appearance of skin leaving it clean, refined, and revitalized.
• Smoothes rough textures and age spots caused by environmental damage.
• Increases cell turnover and collagen formation.
Willow Bark Extract (Salix Alba Bark Extract) improves skin’s appearance by:
• Enhancing cell turnover.
• Salicylic acid like properties contribute similar effects without the drawbacks of irritation mainly associated with hydroxy acids.
• Antimicrobial capabilities.
• Stimulates circulation.
Urea increases the water content of the top layers of the skin.
Sodium PCA is contained abundantly in skin and plays the role of a “natural moisturizing factor” ingredient. As children, our skin possessed an abundant supply of sodium PCA. But as we age, the level of sodium PCA drops 50% or more!
• Extremely hygroscopic (attracts water into the skin from the surrounding air).
• Imparts a pleasant moist feeling to the skin.
• Increases softness and elasticity.
Sodium Hyaluronate has a smaller molecular size than Hyaluronic Acid (making it especially penetrative), and is able to hold more water than any other natural substance—up to 1000 times its weight in water.
