You don’t have to know the mechanics behind how this wonder ingredient works, but Ficus Carica (Fig) Fruit Extract has been shown to reduce wrinkles’ depths and lengths. It also lowers melanin production, inhibits transepidermal water loss (the loss of water from within our body to the surrounding atmosphere) and significantly regulates sebum.
Glycolic Acid is The Holy Grail of exfoliators, effectively removing the outermost layer of dead cells to reveal brighter, more radiant skin. It sounds almost fantastical, but it’s also able to transfer water molecules from the air into the skin, effectively restoring lost moisture. Like a lot of our active ingredients, it also boosts the production of collagen – incredible for plumping up the skin.
Glycine Soja A natural emollient and moisturizer, Glycine Soja Oil (or Soybean Oil) conditions and firms the skin with its high content of protein, minerals and vitamins (Vitamin E in particular).
Glycosaminoglycans (GAG’s) are a natural component of our skin. They bind with water efficiently, forming a fluid that fills the spaces between the collagen and elastin fibers to keep the skin firm. They’re also topnotch hydrators and healers for the skin.
