Lactic acid - an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) naturally found in milk and sugars. It breaks down the bonds between cells (desmosomes) to allow for easier exfoliation of dead surface cells while hydrating the skin. Lactic acid inhibits melanogenesis by suppressing the formation of tyrosinase which helps to minimize the appearance of uneven skin tone.
Lactobionic Acid - a polyhydroxy acid (PHA) that is a gentle exfoliant, matrix metalloproteinases inhibitor (MMPi), humectant, antioxidant, and melanin inhibitor. It leaves the skin clear, bright, and with improved skin texture and tone.
Hydrolyzed Opuntia Ficus-Indica (Prickly Pear) Flower Extract - a botanical that is naturally rich in oligosaccharides (sugars and uronic acids). It has been shown to reactivate the endogenous (internal) desquamation process and improve the quality of barrier function, leaving skin smooth and hydrated.
Saccharide Isomerate - a plant-derived moisturizing agent that delivers instant and long-term hydration for up to 72 hours. It also improves skin barrier function to maintain moisture levels.
