Key ingredients and their Benefits for Dark Circles and Wrinkles/Ageing around the eye area:

NIACINAMIDE (VITAMIN B3) has been shown to have anti-inflammatory benefits, lighten dark marks, age spots, even out skin tone by inhibiting the transfer of the melanin pigment from the melanocyte to the surrounding keratinocyte skin cells. Studies have also shown that this ingredient inhibits elastase activity(the enzyme responsible for elastin and collagen breakdown) and therefore, improves the elasticity and tone of the skin, minimizing the appearance of sagging, fine lines and wrinkles. It also improves hydration levels of the skin by reducing TEWL (trans-epidermal water loss).

CHERRY BLOSSOM (SAKURA EXTRACT) is an extract  from the Japanese Cherry Blossom Flower. It has been used by the Japanese since ancient times for skin beauty. It is widely used in the skincare and cosmetic industry for its multiplicity of benefits. This ingredient has anti-inflammatory, soothing benefits. It has anti-glycation effects on collagen cells and promotes collagen production in the fibroblast cells of the skin. Therefore, it has anti-ageing benefits, minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. It inhibits the enzyme tyrosinase and therefore, lightens hyperpigmentation.

UREA is classified as a keratolytic which means it removes dead skin cells. It improves moisture retention  and therefore, alleviates dry, flaky skin. It also softens the skin.

LINOLEIC and LINOLENIC ACID (VITAMIN F FORTE) are essential fatty acids that improve  moisture and function of the skin barrier. This ingredient improves absorption of other active ingredients. It also helps to regulate sebum and unclogs the skin. It has soothing, anti-inflammatory benefits and contributes to brightening and anti-ageing effects on the skin. It has anti-oxidant benefits and plays a role in lightening hyperpigmentation.

SQUALANE is found naturally in the skin as squalene and supports the barrier that locks moisture in the skin. It therefore, moisturizes, hydrates and softens the skin. It is has anti-ageing benefits and improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It reduces irritation, redness and inflammation. It is a non-comedogenic emollient with added anti-oxidant benefits.

VITAMIN E (TOCOPHEROL ACETATE) is a powerful anti-oxidant that protects the skin against free radical damage due to UV rays. It works in synergy with Ferulic Acid (also an anti-oxidant). It has moisturizing, healing benefits and plays a role in improving hyperpigmentation and ageing skin. It promotes the regeneration of skin cells.

FERULIC ACID is another powerful anti-oxidant and boosts the effects of other anti-oxidants such as Vitamin E.  This combination works well to brighten and firm the skin, improving the skin’s integrity. It improves the appearance of ageing skin including dark spots and wrinkles.

ALPHA ARBUTIN is an anti-oxidant and a well known skin brightener, lightening hyperpigmentation. It reduces hyperpigmentation through inhibiting the enzyme, tyrosinase. It works well in combination with Niacinamide for dark marks and uneven skin tone.

SHEA BUTTER is an emollient and humectant that moisturizes and soothes skin. It reduces inflammation and is rich in fatty acids as well as, Vitamin E. It also has anti-ageing benefits.

HYDROGENATED CASTOR OIL is an emollient that acts as a barrier against moisture loss in skin

VITAMIN K1 (PHYTONADIONE) plays a role in the blood clotting mechanism and reduces pooling of blood. In skincare, it is used for the treatment of dark circles.

SILK AMINO ACID reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It improves moisture, hydration and texture, smoothening the skin.
