There are two main group of ingredients in our skincare product formulations-active and inactive ingredients.
What is Active Ingredients?
Active ingredients are added to the skincare product to carry out a certain action. For example-hyaluronic acid is added to rehydrate the skin.
Why do we have inactive ingredients?
These 5 ingredients (it's more like 7 ingredients) work synergistically together for optimal skin health and protection.
Active Ingredient 02-Vitamin C
Active Ingredient 04-Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid is a natural occurring polysaccharide in the dermis to deliver moisture to our skin and provides a healthy environment for the growth of new cells.
Active Ingredient 05-Peptides-Stem Cells-Growth Factor
Peptides are short chain amino acid bonds which are known to stimulate collagen and elastin production making the skin appears more firm and fuller.
Stem Cells help to repair damaged cells when used in skin applications by self renewing and differentiate into several cell types.
Growth Factors are proteins created from long chain amino acid compounds that act as communication receptors within the dermal layer of the skin. GF travels from one generation of cells to the next providing DNA information for cells to replicate themselves.
