Oat Beta Glucan (Avena sativa) Helps to moisturize the skin as well as heal minor burns and wounds. Beta glucan may help to reduce wrinkles and promote anti-aging. Used in skin care for centuries, oats help to relieve itching and pain and help to heal minor wounds and are also known for their moisturizing and smoothing effects on the skin.
Aloe Vera (Barbadensis miller) Containing over 200 nutrients, including anti-inflammatory polysaccharides, enzymes, amino acids, vitamins, minerals and wound healing nutrients. Aloe increases cell wall permeability, allowing nutrients and active ingredients to be more readily carried through the skin, while aiding the removal of toxins. Aloe has been known to be soothing, moisturizing, and antiinflammatory and may also help stimulate collagen and elastin production!
COQ10 (Ubiquinone) Helps to restore the lipid barrier making skin look and feel firmer, as well as preventing collagen degradation.
Borage Seed Oil (Borage officinalis) Borage seedoil contains a fatty acid called gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). GLA seems to have anti-inflammatory effects. Borage flower might have an antioxidant effect. There is ample evidence from research on both humans and animals showing that borage oil has a significant effect on improving the health and appearance of skin tissue. Clinically, borage oil has been shown to be a very effective agent for treating skin disorders and for alleviating the inflammatory symptoms associated with these disorders. For everyday use, borage oil has been shown to be very effective in treating the redness, inflammation, and moisture loss associated with dry skin.
Evening Primrose Seed Oil (Oenothera biennis) Considered the best remedy to cure eczema and many other skin-related problems. GLA and fatty acid content in this oil is essential for skin health. The oil extracted from evening primrose seeds is very gentle and can be used as moisturizer to keep dry areas hydrated. It also boosts blood circulation which is helpful to treat tired skin and eyes.
Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A) Retinyl palmitate is the ester of retinol (Vitamin A) combined with palmitic acid, a saturated fatty acid and a major component of palm oil. It belongs to the family of chemical compounds known as retinoids and is one of the most important vitamins for the appearance of the skin because of its small molecular structures. These tiny molecules have the ability to penetrate the outer layers of the skin and work to repair the lower layers where collagen and elastin reside.
Tocopherol Acetate (Vitamin E) Effectively protects against acute and chronic UV-induced damage associated with human skin cancers. When it effectively penetrates the skin, vitamin E neutralizes lipid peroxyl radicals while preventing further unsaturated fatty acid peroxidation The remaining vitamin E that has not penetrated the epidermis continues to provide protection by absorbing UV radiation.
Vegetable Glycerin An odorless liquid made from plant oils such as palm, soy and coconut is known as vegetable glycerin. Both the natural coconut and palm oils contain three fatty acids that are combined with glycerin (triglyceride) applied topically to the face. Glycerin is a natural emollient and has a cooling effect on skin. Being a humectant (which means that it attracts water, i.e. moisture), it draws oxygen into the skin thus helping it retain moisture.
