Key Ingredients

  • Sarcosine and L-Carnitine: Naturally occurring molecules that reduce the appearance of oiliness and shine.
  • Polylysine: A patented molecule that also reduces the appearance of oiliness and shine. It has a unique three-dimensional branched structure that is composed of 48 naturally-derived lysine amino acids.
  • N-Acetylglucosamine (NAG): An amino sugar that offers similar exfoliation properties to direct acids. Through this exfoliation, it helps target signs of congestion, while also targeting the look of uneven skin tone.
  • Ectoin: Protects the skin barrier against water loss and helps maintain skin hydration. The ingredient ectoin is an amino acid derivative produced via fermentation from ectoine - a naturally occurring molecule found in a wide range of bacteria that live in extreme conditions.
  • Lactococcus Ferment Lysate: Works to help support the skin barrier. It is a mixture of fragmented molecules derived from the breakdown of the bacteria lactococcus lactis.
