Hyaluronic Acid is a substance produced by the body itself, a poly-saccharide, which is able to bind large amounts of water. Together with water, hyaluronic acid is the most important substance for naturally retaining moisture so the skin can absorb it and stay healthy and hydrated, appear firmer, less saggy and more toned.
Shea butter aids in the skin’s natural collagen production and contains oleic, stearic, palmitic and linolenic acids that protect and nourish the skin to prevent drying. It’s also a rich source of antioxidants, including quercetin, epicatechin gallate, gallocatechin and epigallocatechin. Vitamin A is important for improving blemishes, wrinkles, eczema and dermatitis and Vitamin E is proven to aid in photo-aging and exerting a positive effect on increasing microcirculation.
Squalane is a botanical lipid that mirrors the skin’s lipids found in the sebaceous glands. This natural emollient derived from wheat germ or olive oil, helps lock moisture into the skin and prevent fine lines and ease dry patches. Squalane also protects skin from the free radicals that can cause age spots and premature aging, imparts relief to dehydrated and ultra-sensitive skin and softens rough-textured skin, leaving no oily residue.
