To better help you understand what is going on to your skin, we've created this handy glossary ingredient guide to clarify what some of the more complicated terms mean and what they do for your skin...



  • DNA Repair Enzymes sourced from:
    •  Blue Algae: Uses energy from sunlight to help repair UVB induced DNA damage

    • Mustard Green: Can help enhance the body's natural ability to repair UVA induced damage

    • Mircococcus Luteus: Bacterium found in marine water and soiles (as well as the respiratory tract and human mouth)

  • Growth Factor sourced from barley: Bioengineered from pure, bioengineered barley
  • AHC: A non-irritating AHA (glycolic ‘sugar’ acid) that is combined with an amino acid for slow, controlled release. Exfoliates the skin and stimulates cell turn over. Highly beneficial to sensitive skin or products formulated for daily use as slow release of the glycolic acid reduces irritation without compromising efficacy. 

  • Acetyl Tetrapeptide-2: This highly purified peptide is made to mimic the activity of the youth hormone thymopoietin. It works by reinforcing the cutaneous immune defenses in the skin and also helps stimulate the growth of new cells in the epidermis.

  • Arabidopsis Thaliana: Effectively reverses the oxidative damage to nuclear and mitochondrial DNA in the skin. The DNA repair enzymes from organic sources helps skin repair the effects of exposure to UV rays, environmental pollutants such as ozone, and normal metabolism by the oxidation-intensive mitochondria.

  • Beta Glucan: Derived from oats, this unique ingredient is sub-micron in size, which means that it is small enough to pass between cells for maximum penetration. Beta Glucan is approved by the FDA and the EU for its skin repair properties. It works by stimulating fibroblasts and is used on surgical implants to speed wound healing.   It helps stimulate collagen for added strength to the dermal matrix and provides long term moisturization.

  • Epilobium Angustifolium Extract: This advanced botanical extract of willow herb soothes the skin and helps control inflammation.

  • Hibiscus Abelmoschus: This active extract enhances the Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF-2) activity in the skin by mimicking the skin’s natural protective function against the deterioration of the extra-cellular matrix.

  • Hyaluronic Acid: This naturally occurring biopolymer has gained wide use in the medical field for its wound healing properties. Today it is widely used in cosmetic dermatology as the injectable dermal filler of choice and provides exceptional skin hydrating benefits.

  • Hydroxyproline & Brassica Camprestris: This highly effective moisture barrier repair complex protects the skin against moisture loss and helps prevent future damage.

  • Liposome Delivery System: Provides a unique and sophisticated vehicle to deliver active ingredients deeper into the skin for greater control, stability, and bio-availability.

  • Micrococcus Lysate: This DNA repair enzyme is encapsulated in liposomes for optimal delivery, stimulates the skin’s natural recovery from sun damage. It is derived from one of the most UV-resistant organisms known to science, found in soil and in the ocean. The enzyme activity stimulates the recognition and elimination of damage to the skin that has been most closely linked to the long-term effects of sun exposure.

  • Monoï Oil: Monoï de Tahiti has been used in Polynesia for centuries to hydrate skin and condition hair. It is made by infusing blossoms from the Gardenia Taitensis flower in natural Tahitian coconut oil. This highly emollient oil helps to re-hydrate the layers of the epidermis and shield the skin against the effects of exposure.

  • Nanopeptide-1: This highly effective skin lightening peptide works to reduce the production of melanin to prevent and lighten hyperpigmentation while restoring an even skin tone.

  • Rosemarinus Officinalis: As skin ages, lipid production decreases and skin becomes thinner and unable to retain moisture. This extract of rosemary helps the skin produce the most important components of a healthy lipid barrier to provide added resilience and protection against environmental stressors.

  • Salicornia Herbacaea Extract: This highly refined, ultra-hydrating extract from the coastal marine plant boosts the moisture level in the skin. It has been clinically proven to increase the water content of the skin by 1000 percent.

  • Spanish Lavender: Select molecules of this natural oil have been shown to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines as well as inhibit muscle fibers from contracting. 

  • Sodium Palmitoyl Proline & Alba Flower: Soothe the inflammation associated with hyper-pigmentation and age spots with this powerful botanical complex.
