ALOE JUICE EXTRACT
Commonly used for its superior hydrating and soothing properties, Aloe Vera Leaf Juice is known to help heal, soothe and hydrate skin to prevent dryness and irritation. The leaf of the aloe vera plant is rich in water, particularly in the innermost layer, helping to lock in moisture in the skin and prevent trans-epidermal water loss, the leading cause of dehydration. The extract also possesses antioxidant properties and contains Vitamins A and C.
PINEAPPLE FRUIT EXTRACT
Also known as Bromelain, Pineapple Fruit Extract has a gentle, effective enzymatic effect on the skin for a mild exfoliating benefit that helps to clear the skin surface of dead skin cells. Rich in fruit sugars and amino acids, the fruit extract possesses moisturizing and soothing properties. It also contains natural alpha hydroxy acids (AHA’s) to exfoliate the skin, smoothing its surface texture.
Extracted from papaya fruit, papain is an enzymatic exfoliant that helps remove dead skin cells from the skin surface, revealing a fresh, healthy complexion. It also has the ability to improve overall skin tone and texture, while helping to unclog pores to help prevent irritation and breakouts.
PANTHENOL (VITAMIN B5)
Known as Vitamin B5, Panthenol possesses exceptional soothing and moisture retention properties that leaves skin supple. Studies have shown that the vitamin increases skin’s hydration levels while preventing trans-epidermal water loss that can dry out the skin.
The mild apothecary-derived cleanser is produced in the lab by combining coconut oil with sodium bisulfite, a mixture of salts. The result is a gentle, fatty acid rich surfactant with a mild foaming and cleansing effect on the skin.
