STEARIC ACID (FATTY ACID)
A fatty acid used as an emollient and emulsiﬁer and one of three ingredients that comprise the skin’s natural lipid barrier.
Zinc oxide is a natural, physical, inorganic mineral that provides broad-spectrum protection from UVA and UVB rays. Zinc oxide works to both complement titanium dioxide’s protection and extends photoprotection to the skin where titanium dioxide is insufficient. Zinc Oxide has been known and used topically for centuries as a skin protectant and wound healing adjuvant and is a recognized mild antimicrobial agent. It also reﬂects much of the skin-damaging infrared waves, keeping the skin cooler, reducing heat damage and its subsequent photoaging.
A naturally occurring alpha-hydroxy acid derived from sugar, this ingredient helps speed up cellular turnover, remove the upper layer of skin, and facilitate the growth of smooth, evenly pigmented new skin.
A naturally-occurring alpha-hydroxy acid derived from fermented milk, lactic acid helps speed up cellular turnover, exfoliates dead skin cells, and is gentle enough for people with sensitive skin or rosacea. Since lactic acid is part of our natural moisturizing factor, it is especially compatible with human skin.
Aids exfoliation by weakening the links between cells in the outer layer of dead skin, allowing the normal shedding process to occur at a more optimum rate. By helping new cells surface, it improves skin texture, unclogs pores, enhances penetration (and therefore effectiveness) of ingredients such as vitamin C.
A substance known for its healing, soothing, and anti-irritating properties. This ingredient softens skin and stimulates the formation of healthy tissue. Helps eliminate chapping and cracking, leaving skin silky, smooth, and healthy-looking.
GREEN TEA EXTRACT (CAMELLIA OLEIFERA)
A potent antioxidant that inhibits DNA damage by counteracting oxidative stress. Possesses anti-inﬂammatory properties and helps to treat immunosuppression. When used for its caffeine-containing properties, green tea constricts blood vessels in the skin and reduces water leakage. This ingredient also alleviates puffiness and under-eye darkness.
LAVANDULA ANGUSTIFOLIA (LAVENDER) OIL
Lavender oil is an antibacterial ingredient that works as an astringent and helps in normalizing oil production. Lavender oil’s natural soothing and inﬂammation-reducing properties make it ideal for treating skin redness.
MELALEUCA ALTERNIFOLIA (TEA TREE) LEAF OIL
This ingredient contains antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties and stimulates the immune system.
Found as a natural component of chamomile, Bisabolol is an effective anti-irritant and anti-inﬂammatory ingredient, helpful in soothing red, irritated skin.
