•Buriti is known for its diverse nutritional content, but one of the most notable is its high levels of carotenoids that give it a deep red color. Carotenoids can stimulate collagen and elastin in the skin to increase its density, elasticity, and firmness. In addition, carotenoids can repair and regenerate these protein fibers after damage by UV light. Carotenoids help stimulate epidermal regeneration, helping to soften and smooth skin.
•Pomegranate Seed Oil is one of the few sources of Punicic acid, which has been proven to protect collagen fibers found in the skin, accelerate wound healing, and reduce the appearance of scars. The anti-inflammatory property of punicic acid has also effectively addressed skincare ailments like eczema and psoriasis.
•Borage Oil contains a unique fatty acid known as GLA, which has many benefits, including increased epidermal barrier function, which reduces water loss helping skin maintain proper moisture levels.
•The silica from bamboo extract improves skin health by helping the body absorb essential minerals such as calcium, potassium, and magnesium, which help build collagen. Bamboo extract also offers anti-irritant properties, soothing the skin when applied directly through lotions or creams.

•Cherry Blossom Extract repairs the skin's natural barriers and reduces inflammation and oxidation damage that leads to aging.
•AHA Fruit Extract will improve moisture while simultaneously increasing collagen and glycosaminoglycan production. It can reverse the skin's degeneration and thinning, resulting in smooth, wrinkle-free skin and a rejuvenated complexion. The acids AHA found in this extract will also work to help brighten skin, shed the dullness, and deliver much needed therapeutic benefits so you can shine.
•Southwest Cactus Extract is a blend of several succulent species native to the American Southwest and known for protecting plants in harsh conditions. The benefits for skin include UV & sun damage protection and defending the skin from environmental stresses such as windy conditions and low humidity that typically cause dry, flaky, and itchy skin.
•Bukachoil "ba-koo-chee-ol” is a rare extract that contains a very pure and concentrated form of retinol. Unlike the synthetic retinol found in many products, this natural form will not cause any reactions or photo sensitivities, so that it can be used day or night. Retinol compounds work by increasing cell renewal and stimulating collagen production.
