KEY INGREDIENTS:

 

Matcha (Green) Tea

  • An excellent source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds such as caffeine, theobromine and chlorophyll, which help protect the skin from damaging UVB rays that can lead to premature aging and hyperpigmentation. 
  • In clinical studies, the skin viscoelastic-to-elastic ratio (skin elasticity) was significantly enhanced after 30 days of topical application.1
  • After 15-30 days, skin microrelief (skin surface texture) was significantly improved due to a reduction in skin roughness.2

Indian Gooseberry (Phyllanthus Emblica) Extract, 0.01%

  • Rich in tannins, which have the ability to regulate melanin production and reduce age spots and sun damage. 
  • A powerful antioxidant that helps to prevent and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
  • A strong brightening agent due to high levels of Vitamin C. It has been shown to be a safe and effective skin lightener for normal and hyperpigmented skin.3

Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, 1%

  • A powerful age defense tripeptide.
  • Stimulates the fibroblasts to produce collagen as well as prevent collagen degradation. 
  • In vivo tests demonstrated significant reduction in wrinkle depth within 3 months.4
