It is well known for its skin benefits, especially alleviating dry skin, plumping up skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Topically applied, HA is a great way to boost the skin and provide it with the required level of moisture.

Alpha Arbutin

Adding vitamin C to your skin care routine can not only brighten your complexion but also protect against skin damage caused by sun exposure and harmful free radicals. Topical vitamin C can help prevent premature aging of the skin, restoring a youthful, smooth appearance to the skin.

Ferulic acid

Ferulic acid is a plant-based antioxidant which is primarily used to fight off free radicals, which play a role in age-related skin issues, including age spots and wrinkles. It tends to work well with other antioxidant ingredients, especially Vitamin C. Ferulic Acid helps stabilize Vitamin C while also increasing its photoprotection.

Its fatty acid components hydrate and moisturize extremely dry skin while reducing itchiness and flakiness.

Lemon Balm Extract

Lemon balm extract is a popular ingredient in skincare products due to its rosmarinic acid compound with antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. It protects skin from UV-B radiation, reducing signs of aging like wrinkles and sagging skin, while also soothing inflammation and reducing acne. Additionally, it speeds up melanogenesis, producing melanin pigment that absorbs UV-B rays, protecting skin from sun damage.
