The Giving Essence

Step Four

The Giving Essence

An essence that is the perfect balance of antioxidants, deep hydration and brightening power. Ellagic acid, a naturally produced acid in berries, naturally brightens the skin, while polyglutamic acid helps your skin retain 5000 times its weight in water.

Ingredients:

Galactomyces

Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate (GFF) is a derivative of fermented sake that has proven skin care benefits, including reducing the appearance of pores, blackheads and sebum; decreasing levels of acne; and improving skin brightness.

Niacinamide

Niacinamide helps skin retain moisture, increases antioxidant activity to improve overall texture, increases production of ceramides to fortify the skin barrier, reduces appearance of fine lines, and evens out skin tone. Sensitive-skin friendly.

Black Chokeberry

This superfood ingredient has one of the highest recorded antioxidant contents of any fruit or berry, and contributes to skin youth and radiance. Polyphenols in black chokeberry provide anti-aging and skin calming properties, treating UV-exposed skin.

Ellagic Acid

Found in high concentrations in dark fruits, ellagic acid protects against UV rays, collagen degeneration and harmful bacterial pathogens. This acid brightens skin without impacting cell DNA, making it a safe alternative to other brightening ingredients.

Polyglutamic Acid

This water-soluble peptide holds four times more moisture than hyaluronic acid, and leaves skin radiant and hydrated.

Red Algae

This sea plant contains a high concentration of calcium, which gently exfoliates the skin, removing dead skin cells, reducing fine lines, and brightening complexion.
