Monk's Pepper Berry Extract
An antioxidant complex shown to help dramatically improve the vitality and appearance of the skin. Specifically, it helps:
Fight the appearance of all signs of aging Promote a radiant, healthy glow Increase hydration Protect the skin from free radical damage
This is a pure substance identical to natural ceramides that are found in 40-50% of the skin's lipids. This is an essential skin molecule that functions to capture and bind water so that the epidermis remains supple, smooth, and hydrated. Ceramide naturally decreases with age, leading to dryness and roughness, so it is important to help our skin maintain its highest levels.
A form of Hyaluronic Acid (HA). HA is a major component of the extra-cellular matrix of the skin that helps with the retention of moisture. In fact, HA is able to hold 1000x its weight in water. It is one of the most sought-after hydration factors in the industry. With age, naturally-occurring HA decreases leading to dryer skin. Applying topically:
Reinforces the skin's natural short and long-term moisturization Improves the barrier function of the skin Significantly improves elasticity Reduces skin roughness and the appearance of wrinkles
These are small spherical particles that absorb oil, reduce shine, and provide a soft focus effect to reduce the appearance of imperfections. This helps promote better blend-ability on the skin and a very natural finish.
Dipeptide, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7
Triple peptide blend that helps reduce dark circles, puffiness, and bags under the eye. It helps to activate the elimination of pigments responsible for dark circles and local inflammation while helping improve circulation in the area and improving firmness and elasticity of the skin.
Prickly Pear Extract
Natural extract that helps the skin restore its own exfoliation and regeneration capacities by stimulating the activity of skin enzymes in its natural process of regeneration. It is rich in purified oligosaccharides and significantly helps activate cell renewal, helping you keep a radiant and even complexion.
Helps provide an instant tightening effect, while protecting the skin against oxidative stress and strengthening the connective tissue by increasing the formation of collagen I.
