Squalane an oil naturally occurring in human skin , is an important part of the lipid system. Its penetration capacity is remarkably high. Nanometre droplets of squalane function as effective “transporters” for the A Vitamins and other oil soluble active ingredients. Young and healthy skin contains a high amount of squalane but the level will decrease dramatically with age. Therefore squalane is absorbed excellently into sun damaged and aged skin. Its penetration capacity is remarkably high. A lack of squalane within the skin can lead to premature ageing, very dry skin and a loss of elasticity. Areas of constantly exposed,dry and prematurely aged skin such as on the hands, elbows, heals and knees etc becomeincredibly soft immediately when squalane is applied in the right formulation.
Glycerin is one of the very best and most widely used humectants (moisturisers). It penetrates easily into the epidermis and makes the skin soft and supple. Suitable for even sensitive skin types, it provides lubrication and leaves the skin soft and silky smooth. It is extremely comforting, to very dry severe skin types.
Lanolin plays an important role in maintaining the skin’s moisture balance and provides a remarkably finely textured skin surface.
Tocopherol is a source of Vitamin E that plays an important role by protecting both the skin and the products against harmful free radicals and functions as a natural moisturiser as well as being capable of reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
Dipotasiuassium Glycyrrhizate is the extract from Liquorice Root. This is well known as a wound healing extract, helping to reduce irritation within the skin and providing instant comfort to sensitive skin. It enables the skin to accept strong reacting ingredients with fewer side effects, allowing more effective ingredients to be tolerated by sensitive skins.
Citrus Medica Limonum Extract is a natural source of Vitamin C that functions as a strong anti-oxidant and stimulates collagen synthesis. It gently exfoliates the dead skin cells and reduces problems of excessive oiliness.
