- Ferulic Acid: A plant-based antioxidant found in the cell walls of grains, ferulic acid effectively neutralizes free radicals that could otherwise cause premature aging. It also stabilizes vitamin C and enhances the nourishing benefits of vitamin E.
- Vitamin C (20% L-Ascorbic Acid): Vitamin C in its most efficacious form, L-Ascorbic acid is a powerful antioxidant. It is known for its ability to brighten the appearance of hyperpigmentation and effectively defend from oxidative stress.
- Vitamin E (Tocopherol): A hydrophobic molecule, meaning a molecule that is not water soluble, Tocopherol restores hydration by nourishing the lipid barrier and preventing the evaporation of existing moisture, known as transepidermal water loss, or TEWL. It is an antioxidant and posesses stabilizing abilities in this formula.
- Vitamin B3: Also known as niacinamide can improve the appearance of enlarged pores, brighten dull skin, as well as defend against environmental toxins. Niacinamide also has a hydrophilic molecular structure, meaning it attracts water from its environment.
- Vitamin B5 (Panthenol): This form of Provitamin B5 is a hydrophilic, or water absorbing, humectant and conditioner that works to pull in and bind moisture to the skin.
- Hyaluronic Acid: (Sodium Hyaluronate)Known for its ability to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, Hyaluronic Acid: is a humectant that draws moisture into the skin.
- Sodium PCA: is a naturally occurring humectant that is a derivative of amino acids. It is hygroscopic (able to absorb water from the air) and therefore is an excellent hydrating ingredient. Glycerin is a humectant that works by balancing moisture levels, and also helps skin feel smoother and softer.

Free radicals are unstable molecules that contain unpaired electrons. In this highly reactive state, they search their environment, and seek replacement electrons which creates a domino effect. As free radicals steal electrons from healthy cells, they create more free radicals. Contact with damaged oxygen molecules damages healthy cells. As a result, collagen breaks down, which causes wrinkles and lines to form. However, antioxidants act as the first line of defense by neutralizing free radicals.
