Here's a closer look at a few the active ingredients:
Green Tea: Contains tannins, which are biomolecules that bind with amino acids in the body. Tannins are naturally astringent, so they work as a skin toner to even out the appearance of skin. Tannins shrink pores ensuring that they clog less often. Tannins also regulate sebum production, the skin's naturally generated oil. An over-production of sebum can result in oil skin, clogged pores and acne breakouts. Most oily skin products aim to remove excess oil on the skin's surface, but green tea targets the root cause by minimizing oil production in skin cells.
Willow Bark Extract: Contains salicylic acid, a BHA that is a natural exfoliant used in several acne treatments because it can help skin shed dead cells while clearing pores. It also contains phenolic acids, including salicin, salicortin and flavonoids, tannins, and minerals, which help with skin rejuvenation. Salicylic acid has been shown to be more superior to benzoyl peroxide in reducing acne
Hemp Seed Oil: Known to be one of the most nutritious oils for the skin.
It contains Vitamins D and E and has the ability to reduce inflammation, blotchiness, dryness, and uneven texture without clogging the pores.
It also has a balanced ratio of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids (3:1) which helps reduce the symptoms of acne, rosacea, psoriasis, and eczema.
Hemp seed oil has a comedogenic rating of zero, meaning that it has zero chance of breaking you out or clogging your pores and will actually help your skin balance its sebum (oil) production.
Jojoba oil: Jojoba oil is actually a wax rather than an oil. It is very similar to the sebum your body naturally produces. It can reduce the appearance of oiliness and help prevent acne caused by clogged pores by reducing the need for your body to produce additional sebum for hydration.Its antioxidant properties may also help to slow the signs of aging
Essential Oils of Peppermint, Rosemary, Lavender, Clove, Patchouli, Tea Tree and Ylang Ylang, along with other natural oils like Meadowfoam Seed, Grape Seed and Pumpkin Seed Oils are all known for their acne-fighting abilities as well.
Hyaluronic Acid (Sodium Hyaluronate): Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a polysaccharide and a compound that occurs naturally in every tissue of the body, with the highest concentrations occurring in tissues such as skin, cartilage and eyes. Providing protection to cell structures, HA is the natural gel between skin cells that serves as a water reservoir for the cells. As we age, skin loses hyaluronic acid and the ability to hold sufficient water in this reservoir. Feeding new hyaluronic acid to skin may help hydrate skin's inter-cellular reservoir, raising skin's moisture level, and smoothing down age lines. Hyaluronic Acid has water storing properties. leading to a perceptible and visible improvement of skin condition. When topically applied, it forms a thin transparent visco-elastic surface film that helps to preserve the characteristics of youthful and healthy skin: suppleness, elasticity and tone.
Our Hyaluronic Acid is Ultra Low Molecular Weight and has been upgraded to an ultrapure hyaluronic acid (as tested by HPLC). his very, very low molecular weight improves its ability to penetrate the upper layers of the epidermis.
