Fruit enzymes are a type of protein that come from fruits and are used in skincare products for their exfoliating properties. These enzymes help to break down dead skin cells, revealing smoother and brighter skin. They can also help to improve the texture and tone of the skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improve the overall appearance of the skin.
Acerola ferment is a natural ingredient that is derived from the acerola cherry. This ingredient is rich in antioxidants, which help to protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage the skin's cells and contribute to the signs of aging. Acerola ferment also helps to brighten the skin, reduce inflammation, and improve the skin's texture and tone.
Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3 that is commonly used in skincare products. This ingredient has a number of benefits for the skin, including improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reducing the appearance of enlarged pores, and improving the skin's texture and tone. Niacinamide also helps to strengthen the skin's barrier function, which helps to prevent moisture loss and keep the skin hydrated. Additionally, niacinamide has anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to calm the skin and reduce redness and irritation

A closer look at our ingredients (* indicates certified organic ingredient)
- Sodium Lactate is a component of the NMF (Natural Moisturizing Factor), which is a naturally occurring component of the skin's top layers. It's a natural humectant, moisturizer and pH regulator produced from vegetable sugars from corn and beets.
- Niacinamide, also known as Vitamin B3 and nicotinic acid, is a water soluble vitamin. Niacinamide is a very effective skin-restoring ingredient that offers multiple benefits for skin. Among these benefits is the ability to visibly improve the appearance of enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, fine lines, dullness, and helps improve the overall appearance of the skin
- Cranberry Enzyme - Firm skinned fruits contain enzymes which help to digest large proteins into smaller portions, or small amino acid chains. These types of enzymes are called proteolytic enzymes. In order to harness these beneficial portions of the cranberry, we harvest the ripe fruit and isolate these proteolytic enzymes. It helps to dissolve and digest the dry cells found on the skin’s surface leaving the skin looking revitalized. This type of exfoliation is gentle, meaning that it may be used on fairly frequent basis. Once the cells have been dissolved, they can be washed away and a brighter surface will shine through.
- Pumpkin Enzyme - Most proteolytic materials such as AHA’s or traditional enzymes such as papain or bromelain tend to be irritating on the skin. Pumpkin Enzyme smoothes and softens skin, reduces the appearance of fine lines, and is a non-irritating alternative to AHA's.
- 1,3-Propanediol acts as humectant, emollient, skin penetration enhancer and solvent. Propanediol is made from fermentation of glucose and contains no added preservatives, petroleum-based ingredients, or animal by-products.
- Hydrolyzed Pumpkin Protein has been shown to stimulate collagen in the skin - and help inhibit other factors that would cause the collagen to deteriorate.
- Acerola Ferment is the all-natural alternative source of Vitamin C that promotes a flawless, radiant complexion and naturally bright skin.
- Vegetable Glycerin* is a humectant and emollient, derived from vegetables. It is another naturally occurring component of the NMF, a group of molecules present in the skin to prevent extreme drying. Within the NMF, it works as a humectant - a moisturizing agent which draws water into the outer layer of the skin, from deeper levels and from the air.
- Lactobacillus Ferment is a powerful probiotic-based preservative. It's also a nourishing skin conditioner
- Lactobacillus & Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Fruit Extract is a probiotic based anti-fungal, with moisturizing and conditioning benefits.
- Seabuckthorn CO2 Extract* - It is a rich source of nutrients for the skin, containing essential fatty acids, antioxidant vitamins A and E, as well as beta-carotene, giving it a deep red-orange color. Palmitoleic acid (an Omega-7), adds to the nourishing and moisturizing properties. The chemical composition of this oil-extract may nourish sun-exposed skin.
- Xanthan Gum is a plant derived thickening agent. It helps to bind the other ingredients together and improves the spreadability on the skin
- Distilled water has been purified to remove any impurities and ensure that only sterile water is used to dissolve and incorporate active ingredients, as well as dilute active ingredients to skin-safe levels. It provides moisture for humectants and emollients to hydrate the skin.
