THE FORMULA FOCUS INGREDIENTS

Squalane 

A super nice and stable oily liquid that occurs naturally in the sebum of the human skin. It's a superb moisturizer making the skin silky smooth, without being heavy or greasy. It's pretty much compatible with all skin types and skin conditions, incl. acne-prone skin.

Lipids

(Jojoba Oil/Macadamia Seed Oil Esters, Phytosteryl Macadamiate, Phytosterols, Squalene)  –  Jojoba, macadamia and olive oil-derived, patented lipid mixture that mimics the surface lipid composition of healthy, young adult skin. Used at 3%, it is clinically proven to help barrier repair and skin hydration. It works in synergy with Ceramide 2.

Ceramide 2

Also known as Ceramide NG, is one of the 9 types of ceramides that can be found naturally in the upper layer of the skin. Ceramides are super important molecules in keeping the barrier healthy and the skin hydrated

Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract (standardised to 90% polyphenols)

 Green tea polyphenols are one of the most researched natural ingredients proven to have potent antioxidant, UV protecting and soothing properties.

Bisabolol + Allantoin 

Two classic skincare ingredients known for their skin soothing abilities.
