A matte-effect moisturizing cream is ideal for normal to oily skin that hydrates, nourishes, and helps reduce the appearance of pore size. Formulated with an exclusive combination of Olive Squalane, Aloe Vera, three nutrient-rich Vitamins, and a blending of four natural vegetable oils to protect and leave skin soft without a greasy residue.
Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid) - Excellent for sun damaged, dehydrated, ageing or environmentally stressed skins.
Olive Squalane is derived from the extract of the saponifiable part of Olive Oil and is an unsaturated oil having the molecular structure similar to that of Vitamin A.
During childhood and adolescence Squalane is a natural component of human skin, but as we enter our twenties, the amount present decreases rapidly, contributing the ageing process. Research shows that Squalane not only moisturizes the skin, but also provides a barrier preventing transdermal water loss. Squalane is a proven and powerful moisturizer, helping to decreases dryness and smooth away scaly skin.
Niacinamide (Vitamin-B3) - A water-soluble amide of nicotinic acid historically referred to as vitamin PP for its ability to prevent pellagra. It is a precursor for cofactors NAD(H)and NADP(H) that are important in a variety of cellular pathways that affect skin physiology. NADH and NADPH decrease with age giving rise to the notion that supplementing skin with niacinamide can provide anti-aging benefits. In their reduced forms, NADH and NADPH act as antioxidants that can mitigate oxidative stress associated with intrinsic aging and photoaging. Additionally, niacinamide stimulates keratinocyte differentiation, believed to be a result of increased intracellular NADPH. Niacinamide has broad anti-inflammatory activity. It inhibits nuclear factor kappa B (Nf-kB), reduces production of a variety of inflammatory cytokines, like IL-1 and IL-12, prevents degranulation of mast cells and inhibits leukocyte migration into the skin.
Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin-B5) - A safe, effective, natural vitamin and essential nutrient for wound-healing (promotes epithelialization), treatment of damaged skin, and acne. Pantothenic acid is also referred to as an anti-stress vitamin, due to its essential role in the formation of various adrenal hormones, which allow the body to adapt to and respond effectively to various types of stress.
Helps increase the skin's hyaluronic acid content and helps stabilize the moisture content of the skin. Application to the skin increases resistance to irritation by noxious chemicals and photoaging and prevents immunosuppression. Improves the skin's ability to take in oxygen and help to keep the production of sebum at appropriate levels. Also, helps the skin tolerate sun and maintain a smooth, non-dry surface; may also improve facial pigment conditions.
Use morning and evening. Apply evenly to the face, neck and décolleté. Spread in an upward and outward motion. DO NOT rub.
