Ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate is an oil-soluble form of vitamin C with superior absorption that penetrates the skin more quickly. It has powerful antioxidant properties yet is one of the most stable vitamin C derivatives. Ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate helps brighten the skin, lightening dark spots and hyperpigmentation, increases UV photo-protection, helping to reduce sun damage; boosts collagen production and fights the free radicals that cause premature ageing.
- Superior absorption, rapidly penetrates the skin
- Powerful antioxidant
- Helps prevent ageing
- Protects against sun damage and boosts your sunscreens SPF
- Stimulates collagen production
- Helps lighten the skin
Ceramides are lipid (fat) molecules that naturally occur in skin cells, a key component of the skin barrier i.e. the protective outer layer of the skin. Ceramides maintain and regulate the health of this vital protective outer mantle and help to keep the skin hydrated, inhibiting moisture loss through the skin barrier.
- Strengthens skin barrier
D-panthenol is a biologically active form of vitamin B5 that has the ability to attract and hold moisture in the skin, improving hydration and texture.
- Strengthens the skin barrier
- Penetrates deep into the skin
Ethyl ferulate, also known as ferulic acid ester, is a plant-based, phenolic antioxidant. The antioxidant benefits to the skin are achieved whilst increasing the stability of both vitamin C and E topical applications, defending the skin against environmental depredations and reducing skin inflammation. Ethyl ferulate has a stronger anti-inflammatory effect on the skin than ferulic acid.
- Enhances vitamins C & E
- Helps defend against free radical damage
- Reduces inflammation

Also known as vitamin B3 and nicotinic acid, niacinamide is a very effective skin-restoring ingredient that helps to visibly improve the appearance of enlarged pores, improve uneven skin tone, reduce fine lines and dullness and strengthens a weakened skin barrier. Niacinamide can also help reduce the impact of environmental damage to the skin.
- Improves skin elasticity
- Enhances skin barrier function
- Reduces pigmented discolourations
- Improves tone and texture
Also called betahydroxy acid (BHA), salicylic acid is an ingredient that has numerous functions on the skin and as a result can address both acne and ageing skin concerns. One of its main functions is to exfoliate dead skin which has multiple benefits including the stimulation of underlying cells to produce more collagen and elastin. Furthermore, salicylic acid has the ability to penetrate deep in pores cleaning all sebum and dirt that has accumulated through the day which will help to prepare the skin for your night time regime and helps to minimise both blackheads and whiteheads. Salicylic acid also has soothing properties, improves skin texture and can even increase hydration levels of the skin.
- At home chemical peel
- Deep pore penetration
Sodium hyaluronate crosspolymer is a modified form of skin-replenishing hyaluronic acid which, joined to a polymer structure, is retained within the skin’s uppermost layers for extended periods, resulting in enhanced hydration. Sodium hyaluronate crosspolymer is not animal-derived.
- Repairs the skin barrier
Tocopheryl acetate is fat-soluble vitamin E and one of the best known and researched antioxidants for the skin and body. It is the most bio-available form of vitamin E and has natural skin-conditioning and antioxidant properties, helping protect against free radical damage, strengthening the skin barrier and preventing moisture loss. It has natural SPF properties, helping improve the effectiveness of sunscreens and protecting against UV damage. This ester of acetic acid and tocopherol is an improved alternative to pure tocopherol (undiluted vitamin E) because it is more stable and less acidic.
