Are used by our cosmetic chemists at the formula development and testing stages. These are not only active ingredients, but also emulsifiers, pH regulators and gentle surfactants
Active ingredients
Zinc
It has anti-aging, protective, astringent, drying and soothing effects. Most often you can find in acne pot treatments and on the label of sunscreens, since zinc oxide is a natural UV filter. Zinc normalizes the production of sebum and inhibits the bacterial growth.

Niacinamide
Studies show that niacinamide helps regulate oily skin. It also smooths the texture, reduces the appearance of enlarged pores and eliminates small wrinkles. In addition, it strengthens the barrier function of the skin, has an antioxidant effect and effectively removes age spots. Last but not least, 4% niacinamide has shown to be effective in acne therapy.

Squalene
Squalene is a part of a natural composition of our sebum . It plays an important role in the functioning of the protective barrier, participates in the synthesis of cholesterol and protects the skin from sunlight. After the age of 30, the production of this lipid is significantly reduced, and this becomes one of the factors in dry skin.

Vitamin C
Vitamin C (l-ascorbic acid) is an indispensable antioxidant that helps our skin to look youthful. It addresses the main cause of wrinkles – a lack of collagen, participating in its synthesis. If wrinkles do not bother you, then the vitamin will help with hyperpigmentation, post-acne and skin texture issues. As an antioxidant, it absorbs free radicals before they can harm the skin.

Ribose
This ingredient is responsible for skin elasticity. Ribose is a monosaccharide that is found in all cells of our body. It is a necessary component of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which supplies energy to cells. Studies show that the use of moisturizers with ribose reduces the area (-30%) and the number (-15%) of wrinkles.
NMF
Substances such as urea, amino acids, lactates, peptides, salts and sugars make up the natural moisturizing factor (NFC) of our skin. It is needed to maintain skin elasticity; its renewal and barrier function. The lack of NFU in the skin is closely associated with increased dryness and skin diseases such as ichthyosis and psoriasis. This is the best therapy for dry skin – especially in combination with ceramides.

Matrixyl
Matrixyl is an ingredient for smoothing wrinkles and a gentler alternative to retinol and vitamin C. It stimulates fibroblasts to recreate the extracellular matrix, which leads to the synthesis of collagen I and IV, fibronectin and glycosaminoglycans (polysaccharides). Reduces the depth of wrinkles, tightens the skin and evens out its texture.

Betaine
Betaine is used as a moisturizing agent in cosmetics. Its small polar molecules are able to retain moisture well. Unlike cosmetics with glycerin, products with betaine do not leave a sticky film on the skin. Due to the ability of betaine to prevent and relieve irritation, it is often added to mitigate aggressive agents (such as soaps or soap cleansers).

Salicylic acid
Salicylic acid is the only BHA (beta-hydroxy acid) in cosmetics. Most often it is used in acne remedies. Salicylic acid is very effective for open and closed comedones (blackheads and small bumps) and copes well with inflammation. In products for home use, it is usually found in a concentration of 1-2%.

Lactic acid
Lactic acid is a multitasking component. It has a moisturizing effect, it neutralizes the effect of free radicals, accelerates the process of cell renewal and stimulates collagen synthesis. Therefore, lactic acid is well suited for dehydrated, aging skin, for skin with pigmentation and acne. Compared to salicylic and glycolic, lactic acid is gentler and is more suitable for dry and dehydrated skin.

Mandelic acid
One of the mildest AHA-acids. It provides regular soft exfoliation of the skin. In addition, if you have acne combined with sensitive skin that reacts with irritation to more powerful components (salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide), mandelic acid can help reduce the number of acne lesions. A clinical study compared salicylic peeling (20%) with almond peeling (30%). The results showed that salicylic peeling more effectively eliminates acne, but almond peeling causes significantly fewer side effects.

Lactobionic acid
The type of AHA acids that resembles glycolic acid. Lactobionic acid is better tolerated by the skin and is therefore considered safer. Products with this ingredient are able to strengthen the protective barrier function of the skin, tighten it, fight pigment spots and protect against free radicals. In addition, lactobionic acid attracts and retains moisture several times better than another well-known moisturizer – glycerin, so the serum with this acid not only exfoliates, but also helps with dehydration.

Tripeptide-1
The copper-1 tripeptide is also called GHK-Cu, by the name of the amino acids of which it consists (glycine, histidine and lysine). It is contained in the plasma of our blood and is secreted by tissues (such as skin) in case of damage, giving a signal that we need to start the regeneration process. By applying products with this peptide to the skin, we almost "decieve" it, singling the damage, forcing the skin to produce collagen. Studies show that tripeptide-1 copes well with photoaging, reduces the appearance of wrinkles and increases skin density.

Oligopeptide
An oligopeptide is a mixture of several fatty acids and amino acids. This is a signal peptide that signals fibroblasts the destruction of elastin. When such signal is received, fibroblasts begin to produce new proteins. The peptide stimulates collagen synthesis, strengthens the epidermis and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Oligopeptide is comparable with retinoic acid by its mechanism of action. It does not cause irritation.

Azelaic acid
This is one of the main components in the treatment of acne. Not only does it have exfoliating and drying properties, but also helps to cope with bacteria C. acnes. According to studies, 15% of azelaic acid work on acne the same way that 5% benzoyl peroxide, but, unlike the latter, do not cause side effects. In addition, azelaic acid creams are the gold standard in the treatment of rosacea and other persistent redness of the skin.

Hyaluronic acid
Moisturizing and anti-aging component, which is worth paying attention to if you have dry and dehydrated skin. Due to its structure and large molecular weight, hyaluronic acid molecules are able to retain an amount of water many times greater than their own. In our body, hyaluronic acid performs the function of preserving water in the tissues, and also acts as a lubricant for the joints. In cosmetics, it is used to moisturize and smooth wrinkles, add extra volume and correct the shape of lips, cheekbones and other areas of the face.

Retinoic acid
Retinol helps skin cells to work properly and fights wrinkles, acne and dry skin. It accelerates the process of cell renewal and brings it closer to the physiological ideal. It stimulates the work of fibroblasts, which are responsible for the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Studies have shown that the best ways to stimulate the work of fibroblasts are injections of hyaluronic acid (biorevitalization), laser resurfacing and topical retinol (retinoic acid)

Ceramides
The protective barrier of our skin has two main tasks -– to prevent dehydration and to prevent harmful bacteria from penetrating our skin. Photodamage, age-related changes and improper care thin the protective lipid barrier of our skin. Ceramides help restore it and retain moisture. It is always better if the product contains both cholesterol and fatty acids, as this combination is as close as possible to the natural composition of our lipid mantle. This component is especially great for those who suffer from atopic dermatitis or psoriasis: with these diseases, the amount of ceramides in the stratum corneum of the skin is significantly less than normal.
