Key Ingredients

Retinyl Palmitate

Retinyl palmitate is a vitamin A derivative. As part of the retinoid family, retinyl palmitate helps speed cell turnover and improve collagen production promoting radiant and smooth skin. While also targeting pigmentation and dark spots for an even skin tone. As one of the most gentle forms of vitamin A retinyl palmitate is suitable for most skin types.

Squalane

Squalane is that it’s a hydrogenated version of squalene, a compound produced naturally by our sebaceous glands. Squalane moisturizes the skin and helps keep the skin’s outer barrier intact by creating a protective coating. This promotes luminosity and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Squalane also has natural antioxidant properties which further help to protect the skin and prevent free radical damage.
