What’s your skin type? Choose it here.
Glycosaminoglycans – This active protein inhibits the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) enzymes that destroy the collagen network in the skin. Environmental stress and sun exposure increase the activity of the enzymes, affecting the extracellular matrix. This ingredient promotes the prevention of irritation and reduces the appearance of redness and irritation.
Sucrose Polysoyate – Monosaccharide with water-binding properties to keep skin cells hydrated deep within the skin.
Calendula Flower Extract – The beautiful, edible orange petals of the Calendula Herb contain properties that are a proven, time-honored remedy for sensitive skin. This also has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties to calm and soothe and reduce inflammation and heal breakouts and scarring.
Willowherb (Epiobium Angustifolium Flower/Leaf/Stem) Extract – Contains a bioactive molecule called Oenothein-B, which is patented for its wide ranging anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial activity. Its free radical scavenging abilities soothe inflamed or irritated skin while allowing the skin to heal.
