A Tetrapeptide (argireline) with anti-oedema properties and a proven efficacy in reducing puffy eyes. tetrapeptide-5 has been shown to reduce puffiness and swelling by changing the micro-circulation in the skin in this area, making it less permeable to fluid) Ubiquinone Coenzyme Q10 Effectively prevents oxidative stress in human skin cells. Furthermore, it protects from chronological and photoaging of dermal fibroblasts. It reduces the negative effects of photoaging, achieved by reducing the depth of wrinkles. Pantheon Alcohol Is a form of the B vitamin pantothenic acid. Panthenol is used in skincare products as a humectant due to its ability to attract and hold moisture.

Glycolic Acid AHA
An acronym for alpha hydroxy acid. In its capacity as an exfoliant, it helps shed dead skin to renew the skin’s surface, visibly softening the signs of aging, particularly from sun damage. Glycolic acid is one of the most effective and well-researched forms of alpha hydroxy acid available.
