Bacillus Ferment Bacillus ferment is a prebiotic harvested from ancient underwater caves in Mallorca, Spain. We have included it in this formula due to its unique ability to balance the skin microbiome and visibly smooth and plump the skin. It acts as a prebiotic which means it is metabolized by the micro-organisms that exist on the skin’s surface (commensal cutaneous microbiota). This action enhances the release of postbiotics and antioxidants which work to protect the skin cells from environmental stress factors. It also works to increase the ability of skin cells on the outermost layer of the skin (keratinocytes) to produce “ageless” proteins which help to enhance the integrity of the skin surface, hydrate and protect the skin. Coined as an “agebiotic” it represents a new approach to looking after the skin’s microbiome.
Clinical studies* of the “agebiotic” have found:
Volume and area of crow’s feet wrinkle decreased by up to 62% and 44% (respectively) in just 7 days.
Depth and area of forehead wrinkles decreased by up to 28% and 85% (respectively) in 28 days.
Long-term hydration of the skin was improved by 63% in 28 days.
The biodiversity of skin microbiota was improved by up to 50% in 28 days.
*Study conducted on 40 women aged 40-55 years old, applying the ingredient twice daily over 28 days.
Niacinamide Best known for its ability to visibly reduce enlarged pores and even skin tone, Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) is a powerhouse ingredient for visibly restoring the skin. Its potent antioxidant content provides it with the ability to strengthen the skin barrier and protect against free radical damage. Niacinamide supports the natural production of the skin-strengthening ceramides, helping to prevent moisture loss and improve fine lines and wrinkles.
Hyaluronic Acid The ultimate in instant-hydration for all skin types, Hyaluronic Acid is capable of holding up to 1000 times its weight in water, delivering it deep into the dermis where it binds to skin cells. The natural acid works to improve skin pliability and plumpness to visibly refine fine lines and wrinkles for a smoother complexion.
Calendula Prized for its skin calming and restorative properties, Calendula is a star ingredient for anyone with sensitive or irritated skin. It provides soothing and calming actions along with protective antioxidants that work to reduce irritation.
St John’s Wort John’s Wort is a powerful restorative ingredient used for its ability to increase skin elasticity and hydration, calming the skin and promoting the skin’s natural repair process. St John’s wort stimulates the circulation of oxygenated blood to damaged cells aiding the skins regeneration process and helping to calm and restore irritated and inflamed skin.
Chamomile Famous for its calming and soothing properties. Chamomile is a powerhouse for anyone with sensitive skin or inflammatory conditions such as rosacea or eczema. Abundant in flavonoids and phytochemicals, Chamomile has the ability to protect the skin against free radical damage and visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
