Glycolic acid is a water-soluble alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that is derived from sugar cane. It is one of the most well-known and widely used alpha hydroxy acids in the skincare industry.
Also known as sunflower oil is a lightweight oil that is rich in Vitamin E.

A non-essential amino acid found in a variety of foods and naturally in the structure of the hair, skin, and nails.
Essential fatty acids from the jojoba plant, broken down by water to form a new complex with properties different from the original source.
Isoleucine or L,-Isoleucine, is a very important amino acid in skin care.Like all amino acids, the real value of isoleucine comes from its assimilation into the protein. The bloodstream absorbs amino acids and deliver them to all of the key tissues of the body, including the skin, hair, and nails, where they are assimilated into structural proteins like collagen, elastin, fibrin, and keratin. Studies show that isoleucine in particular may be important in stimulating protein synthesis and tissue repair.
A palm oil-based emollient, derived from coconut oil. It is primarily used as a thickening agent in skincare products like moisturizers, sunscreens, and conditioners. It also acts as a lubricant on the skin’s surface, giving it a smoother appearance and transforming the texture into one that is ultra soft.
Optimal skin lightening ingredients for cosmetic products will inhibit melanogenesis by tyrosinase inhibition and be of plant or natural origin. Lemon Peel Bioferment is ideally suited to meet these requirements. It should be considered for use in skin lightening products and anti-age skin care products to ameliorate age spots and irregular skin pigmentation. Lemon Peel Bioferment is the result of macerating whole lemon fruit and incubating it with Lactobacillus lacti (the same bacteria used to produce many fermented food products like cheese and sour cream). This ferment is then further processed to remove the potential allergens, citral and geraniol. The resulting ferment is said to have both anti-tyrosinase and antioxidant activity.
A modified soy lecithin. It is often used as an emulsifier for light cosmetic products that are smoothing, non-greasy and hydrating.
