Lentinus Edodes (Shiitake Mushroom) Extract

Shiitake mushrooms are packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds. They contain the antioxidant L-ergothioneine, which helps prevent the breakdown of skin cells from environmental stressors. As a rich source of kojic acid, shiitake mushrooms can visibly brighten, fade dark spots, and lighten acne scars. Shiitake’s anti-inflammatory properties help improve skin barrier strength, encourage faster skin renewal, and boost skin elasticity.

Linoleic Acid

Linoleic acid, or essential fatty acid (EFA) Omega 6, is integral for proper function of the skin barrier. EFAs (Omega 6 and Omega 3) cannot be synthesized by the skin, so they must be obtained from external sources. EFAs have important roles in both the dermal and epidermal layers of the skin, and therefore maintaining their concentrations has a direct impact on its health and appearance. Applying linoleic acid topically also provides excellent anti-inflammatory benefits. In fact, many acne-prone skin types are found to be deficient in linoleic acid.

Linolenic Acid

Linolenic acid is an essential fatty acid (EFA) that includes two main forms: alpha linolenic acid (ALA, omega 3) and gamma linolenic acid (GLA, omega 6). Linolenic acid is integral for proper function of the skin barrier. EFAs (Omega 6 and Omega 3) cannot be synthesized by the skin, so they must be obtained from external sources. GLA, a rare occurrence in nature and prized for its anti-inflammatory abilities, is a remarkable treatment for atopic dermatitis and other skin disorders.

Lupinus Albus (White Lupin) Seed Extract

A proprietary lupin seed extract, trade named Collageneer, that serves as a multi-benefit firming active by stimulating synthesis of a high-quality collagen in the skin. It has remarkable anti-inflammatory abilities, anti-cancer qualities, and it effectively increases skin elasticity to firm and remodel the facial contour. This extract is specially synthesized to yield an ester known as lupeol, a pharmacologically active pentacyclic triterpenoid. Lupeol is an active molecule that increases the synthesis of Collagen 1 and HSP 47 (Heat Shock Protein), a “chaperone” protein that facilitates collagen production. A clinical study showed the firmness of the skin improved by 92% and the sagging of the facial contour reduced by 72% after 42 days.

Myristyl myristate is an ester derived from myristyl alcohol, a nourishing fatty alcohol, and myristic acid, a saturated fatty acid. It functions as an emollient, texture enhancer, and co-emulsifier. Since it melts near body temperature, it imparts a lush, velvety sensation on application. It also gives products more body, aids in spreadability and helps stabilise the formula by keeping the oil and water components from separating.
