Glycerinl is a component of glycerin soap. Glycerine is ideal for sensitive, easily-irritated skin because it prevents skin dryness with its moisturizing properties. It draws moisture up through skin layers and slows or prevents excessive drying and evaporation.
Sodium Hyaluronate is used to protect the skin. It works by forming a protective layer over skin to allow skin time to heal and repair. This is essential in anti-ageing. Hyaluronate is a natural compound found in the body.
Collagen takes up different forms: Type I and III are found in our skin while Type VIII is found in the linings of our blood vessels. Type III collagen is present in young bodies and is the reason behind the youthful appearance of our skin. However, as we age, this collagen degrades and turns into the much harsher Type I collagen. Marine collagen protein is abundant in Type III collagen.
Beta glucan can help to moisturize the skin as well as heal minor burns and wounds. More recently it has also been established that beta glucan can also reduce wrinkles and promote anti-aging.

Dimethylaminoethanol – Active ingredient feature. DMAE/DMEA
Dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE) is a naturally-occurring, mild cerebral stimulant nutrient found in ‘brain foods’ such as anchovies and sardines. It contains two main active ingredients, 2- dimethylaminoethanol and dimethylethanolamine. DMAE is an analog of the B Vitamin Choline and precursor of acetylcholine, an important component of neurotransmitters and is vital for the normal function of nerves in the brain and throughout the body. Moreover DMAE reduces the appearance of wrinkles, improves sagging skin tone and elasticity, reducing lines, age spots, and other signs of ageing and premature ageing.
FYI: In a randomized clinical study, 3% DMAE facial gel applied daily for 16 weeks has been shown to be safe and efficacious (p < 0.05) in the mitigation of forehead lines and periorbital fine wrinkles, and in improving lip shape and fullness and the overall appearance of aging skin. These effects did not regress during a 2-week cessation of application. Beneficial trends were noted in the appearance of coarse wrinkles, under-eye dark circles, nasolabial folds, sagging neck skin, and neck firmness. The acute skin-firming effects of DMAE have been confirmed by quantitative measures of cutaneous tensile strength. The benefits of DMAE in dermatology include a potential anti-inflammatory effect and a documented increase in skin firmness with possible improvement in underlying facial muscle tone.
Palmitoyl Oligopeptide – Featured Active Ingredient
The main function of palmitoyl oligopeptide is the restructuring of cutaneous, or skin, tissues. Research has shown that palmitoyl oligopeptide can increase collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid and glucosaminoglycan production. When the synthesis of these proteins is stimulated, the appearance of wrinkles is decreased, skin appears rejuvenated and smooth.
Tetrapeptide-7 Featured Active Ingredient – Featured Active Ingredient
Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 is a synthetic peptide comprised of four amino acids that is used to suppress the production of excess interleukins, the chemical messengers which trigger the body’s acute inflammatory response. Excess interleukins can lead to glycation damage, or the process by which glucose links with proteins and causes them to bind together, stiffening tissues having a negative effect on the skin’s support system. The support system, comprised of collagen, elastin and other proteins, are vital in the restoration of skin and avoiding wrinkles, sagging, and uneven skin tone.
