Gamma Poly Glutamic Acid (gPGA) with Alpha Arbutin

Gamma Poly Glutamic Acid (gPGA) with Alpha Arbutin

Gamma Poly Glutamic Acid:

Gamma PGA is a remarkably potent hydrating compound that represents a major breakthrough in the science of skincare. It is ten times more hydrating than Hyaluronic acid and far more elastic than collagen. In Asia, Gamma PGA is commonly recognized for its specific skin care benefits. It is 100% natural, bio degradable and non-toxic.
Originally discovered in marine jellyfish, Gamma PGA, also known as Natto Gum, Plant/Phyto Collagen or Gamma Poly Glutamic Acid, is derived from NATTO, a Japanese soybean-based health food item dating back more than 1000 years.

Gamma PGA has many features and benefits:

-Diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
-Facilitates skin exfoliation
-Promotes the clearance of stagnant melanin to brighten skin
-Enhances the skin’s natural moisturizing capabilities
-Penetrates to the skin’s deepest layers
-Carries moisture and nutrients as it penetrates
-Forms a thin, smooth and moisturizing film on the skin (can be used for all skin types-including Oily!)
-Increases production of the Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF)
-Locks in moisture, giving you softer, more supple skin
-100% natural, preservative and additive free
MAP Vitamin C:

MAP Vitamin C is a water-soluble, non-irritating, stable derivative of Vitamin C. It has the same potential as Vitamin C to boost skin collagen synthesis but is effective in significantly lower concentrations. It is more stable than L-Ascorbic Acid and is as effective as Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid) to boost skin collagen synthesis but is effective in significantly lower concentrations. Because of those reasons, MAP has rapidly gained popularity in skin care.

When comparing MAP with Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid), it is important to note that MAP may be more suitable for people with sensitive skin and those wishing to avoid any exfoliating effects, as some Vitamin C formulas are highly acidic (and therefore produce exfoliating effects). In skin care products, MAP Vitamin C is also used for UV protection and repair, collagen production, skin lightening and brightening, and as an anti-inflammatory. It is also a potent antioxidant. It is considered an excellent non-irritating skin whitening agent that inhibits skin cells that produce melanin while lightening age spots, and is a great alternative to Quinone.

•Paraben free, no color, no fragrance, and no alcohol.
•100% pure Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate as the vitamin C source, non-irritating.
•Enhanced with other natural and powerful ingredients for skin hydration and anti-oxidant, such as hyaluronic acid!
•Quick absorption by skin, not oily.
Alpha Arbutin:

Alpha-Arbutin(4-Hydroxyphenyl-a-D-glucopyranoside) is a pure, water soluble. biosynthetic active ingredient. Alpha-Arbutin blocks epidermal melanin synthesis by inhibiting enzymatic oxidation of Tyrosine and Dopa. 
Alpha Arbutin has fewer side effects than hydroquinone of similar concentrations - presumably due to the more gradual release. It is a more effective, faster, and safer approach to promoting skin - brightening and an even skin tone for all skin types. Alpha Arbutin also minimizes the appearance of liver spots and meets all the requirements of a modern skin-brightening and skin depigmentation product. 
Alpha Arbutin is a gentle but powerful lightening agent that comes from the bearberry tree. It brings the benefits of strong melanin inhibitors such as hydroquinone, but without the odor, toxicity, and potential side-effects. Alpha Arbutin is quite simply a natural and effective alternative to other skin lightening chemical.

What it does:

-Reduces fine lines and wrinkles

-Hydrates and firms skin

-Evens out skin tone
Kojic Acid:

Kojic Acid was discovered as a natural product derived from a mushroom in Japan in 1989. It has been successfully used to lighten pigment spots and skin discoloration.  

Kojic acid can produce excellent effects in evenly toning the skin and fighting age spots. It is a 98% pure and natural material. Kojic acid may help diminish or eliminate sun freckles or other dark spots!

-Eliminate skin blemishes-Reduce age spots, fine lines, and acne scars.

-Freckles-All people have pigment-producing cells in our skin called melanocytes that produce melanin, which our skin uses to shield itself from the sun and other environmental hazards. While this pigment protects us from the sun, our melanocytes can become damaged if our skin receives too much sun exposure.  The result of damaged melanocytes is often an abundance of melanin fed into the dermis.  This process results in small brown spots called freckles.  Kojic acid fights freckles topically by countering the melanin in the area.
Licorice Root Extract:

Licorice contains antioxidants, which help protect your skin from sun damage and exposure to the elements. It's a powerful moisturizer for the skin. Licorice soothes your skin and brings it back to life. It is also renowned for its ability to fight acne and acne scars.

- Helps fade brown spots

- Helps fade scars

- Helps fade stretch marks
Vitamin E:

Vitamin E is the generic name for “tocopherol” and is available in four different forms. 

The beauty benefits of vitamin E come from its antioxidant properties. Antioxidants remove free radicals — the unstable compounds that damage the cell structure. 

Vitamin E can also be used to reduce the appearance of scars, acne, and wrinkles because it speeds up cell regeneration. This creates an anti-aging effect, which makes the skin look younger.

Vitamin E benefits the skin by helping it retain its natural moisture content. Vitamin E makes dull-looking, dry skin look healthier and fresher!
Hyaluronic Acid:

Hyaluronic acid, also known as HA, is a natural compound found in skin that has many important functions, including holding in moisture, providing cushioning, adding in tissue repair, and holding together the skin's structural components (collagen and elastin). Topical products containing hyaluronic acid are effective at moisturizing surface skin cells.

-Moisturizing: Hyaluronic acid holds moisture well-holding up to 1000 times its weight in water. Hyaluronic acid functions not only to deliver water to the skin, but also to hold it there.

-Wrinkles: The loss of natural hyaluronic acid is one of the primary causes of wrinkles, so the idea of putting HA back into the skin to repair wrinkles makes sense! By reducing wrinkles, your skin looks younger and evens out skin tone, making it look smooth and supple.

-Safety: Hyaluronic acid based products are considered highly safe.

  • Directions

    Apply twice a day, once in the morning before your normal moisturizing routine and again in the evening to a cleansed face. Follow with moisturizer and sunscreen. As the serum is concentrated, only a small amount is needed. Refrigerator storage is recommended.
