Our proprietary phytohormone extract uses a balance of phytoandrogens and phytoestrogens from edible plants. Our phytoandrogen is dual-faced, reducing hormonal acne by blocking DHT yet still lighten skin like testosterone. Similarly, our phytoestrogens diminishes oestrogen-linked melasma
yet boost collagen like oestrogen. As we age, our natural hormone production tends to decrease, leading to skin sag and aging. Phytohormones can serve as a supplement to support these declining levels. Additionally, phytohormones have cancer preventive properties and offer protection against UV radiation.
AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids)
AHAs, or Alpha Hydroxy Acids, are water-soluble acids commonly found in fruits (glycolic acid, malic acid, and citric acid) and milk (lactic acid). They include compounds like. They have different purposes at different strengths- glycolic for exfoliating and drying, lactic, citric and malic acid for brightening and plumping. Our essence focuses on fruit acids for the later effect.
Quercetin, a plant polyphenol is one of nature’s most potent anti inflammatory agent that acts like an anti-histamine. It suppresses excessive cortisol production to reduce stress related aging and acne. Quercetin also neutralizes free-radicals to protect the skin against UV damage and evens out skintone.
Niacinamide, also known as vitamin B3, is a water-soluble vitamin that has shown to improve the appearance of enlarged pores by reducing the over activity of the sebaceous glands without excessively drying out the skin. It also brightens the skin by inhibiting the transfer of melanin produced by tyrosinase from melanocytes to keratinocytes.
Ferulic Acid is a powerful and soothing antioxidant found in plants. When used in combination with AHAs, it becomes a powerful and stable brightener. Ferulic acid combats the signs of aging and protect the skin from environmental
Zinc functions as a DHT blocker, effectively reducing hormonal acne breakouts. Additionally, zinc's anti-microbial and neutralizing properties help alleviate skin irritations and support faster wound healing. Zinc provides mild sun protection, shielding your skin from harmful UV rays.
Biosulfur is a compound derived from sulfur, an essential mineral for the body. Its antibacterial and oil absorbing properties help combat acne.
