SEA BUCKTHORN EXTRACT
A rich source of antioxidants that contains an especially high content of vitamins A, C, and E. Sea Buckthorn Extract is a great natural cleanser and exfoliant that helps strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier. Shown to improve texture and tone while stimulating collagen, and promoting elasticity.
WILLOW BARK EXTRACT
This antioxidant has balancing, toning properties to improve the appearance of uneven com- plexions and defend the skin’s barrier from environmental pollution. High in tannins, phenolic acids, flavonoids, and various minerals, all of which help soothe the skin. Willow Bark Extract contains salicin—from which salicylic acid is derived—this versatile ingredient is both anti- inflammatory and antibacterial, clearing pores and alleviating acne and irritation.
A natural exfoliant, salicin sloughs off dead skin cells and clears pores to reveal a more radiant, clear complexion. Salicin’s anti-inflammatory effects have also been shown to soften fine lines, reduce the appearance of pores, and even out skin tone while promoting increased firmness.
Ceramides are lipids (fat molecules) found naturally in the outermost layer of the skin. They are fatty acids that maintain the skin barrier and retain moisture, keeping the skin hydrated. Ceramides help hold the skin together by forming a protective layer that limits moisture loss and protects against visible damage from pollution and other environmental stressors. They are critical for an effective skin barrier function. Because they’re naturally a part of your skin, ceramides are ideal for all skin types—even the most sensitive, breakout-prone, or oily skin.
Ceramides help prevent dryness, skin conditions like eczema, rosacea, and dermatitis, reduce redness and irritation, decrease inflammation, and help acne.
