HYDRATION BOOSTER SERUM WITH HA+NIACINAMIDE
Cosmetic prebiotic - The inulin is extracted from chicory roots whilst the Alpha-glucan oligosaccharide is obtained from sugar beet. These two are powerful prebiotics that feed the billions of friendly bacteria, called saprophytic flora that lives on our skin and help us maintain healthy microflora supportive of a healthy barrier.
Pentavitin (Saccharide Isomerate) - A superior 100% natural and biodegradable emollient and humectant. Suitable to even the most sensitive of skin. Pentavitin is also wonderful at reducing irritation caused by acids. Ecocert
Vegetable Glycerin - A powerful natural humectant that helps keeps skin hydrated and radiant.
Cucumber Extract - Cucumber is moisture-binding, sebum regulating, soothing, tightening, refreshing, softening, anti-itching and anti-inflammatory.
Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) - Improves skin barrier function by stimulating a new production of ceramides, while balancing sebum production. It is a potent treatment for hyperpigmentation and increases tolerance to topical retinoids.
Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 - Highly bioactive, deeply skin pentrating peptide that has been found in-vitro studies to activate tissue growth factor responsible to collagen synthesis in skin. It has been found to significantly reduce any type of wrinkles when used daily for 84 days.
Hyaluronic Acid - Hyaluronic acid’s ability to replenish moisture is exremely impressive! One gram of hyaluronic acid can hold up to six liters of water. This moisture-binding characteristic is particularly important when it comes to skin aging. Hyaluronic acid can enhance moisture in skin beyond comparison with any other ingredient, and make skin look and feel softer, smoother and radiant. It really can instantly improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Pro-vitamin B5 - is an excellent, penetrating moisturiser that helps stimulate cellular proliferation and tissue repair.
Ginkgo Biloba Extract - Extremely rich in quercetin, a natural flavonoid and antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties, Ginkgo is a powerful free-radical scavenger and anti-aging active. Very beneficial for oily skin and clogged pores as well as for people with sensitive skin.
Liquorice Extract - Liquorice contains various naturally-occurring compounds, including glabridin and liquiritin. Glabridin have been found to be successful at lightening the colour of skin. Studies have shown that glabridin also prevents UV-B induced pigmentation and exerts anti-inflammatory effects on the skin. Liquiritin is particularly useful for treating melasma.
Betaine - a powerful humectant, betaine binds to water molecules and can trap moisture in the skin improving overall skin hydration. It also helps rebuild and repair the skin barrier function (the part of the skin that regulates moisture levels). It is an extremely soothing ingredient for irritated and inflamed skin.
Green Tea Extract - A powerful antioxidant due to its catechin content. Great at neutralising free-radicals that are created by UV light and attack the skin’s cells, causing cellular damage.
Gluconolactone+Sodium Benzoate - a preservative system with 1% concenration. Gluconolactone is a naturally derived polyhydroxy acid that acts as an antioxidant, and benzoic acid is a food-grade preservative which in regulatory terms is considered GRAS (generally recognised as safe).
