AquaCacteen® (Opuntia Ficus-Indica (Cactus) Stem Extract)– rich in essential amino acids, antioxidants and water-binding polysaccharides. It hydrates, smoothes, and protects from environmental stress.
Olivem® (Cetearyl Olivate, and Sorbitan Olivate)– a combination of fatty acids that is able to both restore and maintain the integrity of the skin barrier.
Sodium Pyrrolidone Carboxylic Acid (PCA)– a component of the skin’s natural moisturizing factor (NMF) and has a very potent hydrating and moisturizing power. It is nonirritating and non-allergenic, and is a humectant with moisture-binding ability.
Bisabolol (L-Alpha)– acts as an anti-inflammatory, promotes wound healing, reduces sensitivity, alleviates heat while soothing skin irritation.
Phenyl t-Butylnitrone (Spin Trap)– a highly active oxygen/nitrogen complex, considered an “intelligent” antioxidant, instead of destroying free radicals, it traps them, transforms them into useful oxygen, and then transports them back into the respiratory cycle.
Phycocyanin– a natural blue pigment derived from Spirulina, a blue-green algae, with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
