Information about the ingredients

  • Fruit acid complex

    A compound of different plant extracts containing 5 different AHAs. A very gentle but effective way to exfoliate the skin. The compound is bioactive and stable, meaning it works effectively on the skin and remains effective throughout the product’s life. The compound exfoliates dead skin cells, stimulates skin regeneration and brightens the skin.

  • AHA, BHA and PHA acids

    AHA acids are water-soluble, so they exfoliate the surface layer of the skin and moisturise the skin. AHA acids are best used for whiteheads, surface texture and brightening skin tone. Glycolic acid from AHAs also stimulates collagen production in the skin.

    BHA acids are oil-soluble, so they exfoliate the skin from deeper within the pores. BHA acids work best for blackheads, clogged pores, smoothing the skin and reducing inflammation on the skin.

    PHA acids are a new generation of AHA acids. They are also water soluble, but very gentle. They also effectively moisturise the skin and are particularly helpful in smoothing surface roughness.

  • Kiwi extract

    Kiwi extract contains the exfoliating enzyme actinidin. Enzyme peeling is very gentle. Kiwi also contains skin-brightening vitamin C and nourishing vitamin E. In addition, kiwi is packed with other nutrients and antioxidants.

  • Hyaluronic acid

    Hyaluronic acid is one of the most effective ingredients for skin hydration as it has the ability to retain up to 10 times its own weight in moisture. Hyaluronic acid makes the skin hydrated, smooth and plump. Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in the skin, so it is also non-allergenic and suitable for everyone. All skin types, from oily to sensitive, can benefit from moisturising.

    Hyaluronic acid is not an acid, despite its name, so you can safely use it in your skincare routine every morning and evening.

    Hyaluronic acid has a larger molecular size, so it is absorbed more slowly and acts on the surface layers of the skin. It forms a moisturising film on the surface of the skin, from which moisture is released throughout the day.

  • Hydrolysed hyaluronic acid

    Hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid is an hyaluronic acid that has been broken down into smaller particles so that it is absorbed more effectively into the skin.

  • Sodium hyaluronate

    Sodium hyaluronate is a salt of hyaluronic acid with a smaller molecular size than hyaluronic acid alone. The smaller molecular size allows the raw material to penetrate deeper into the skin.

  • Watermelon extract

    Watermelon is a delicious, summery fruit packed with vitamins, antioxidants – and of course, plenty of water. Watermelon extract is rich in vitamins (A, B and C) and amino acids that are beneficial to the skin, moisturising, brightening and soothing. Thanks to its high water content, watermelon is a highly moisturising ingredient that also helps to smooth fine lines.

    In Korea, watermelon has been used in skincare for generations. For example, watermelon is used to soothe irritated or sunburnt skin. Watermelon extract soothes skin irritation, reduces redness and speeds up skin regeneration.
