Ingredients explained

Water
Est. %75
Function
Origin
The most used ingredient in skincare. Its concentration defines the product texture: rich creams may have about 50% of water while a light jelly about 90%. Water doesn’t moisturize the skin by itself and is used in skincare as a solvent for other ingredients.
Glyceryl Polymethacrylate
Est. %7.5
Function
Origin
A synthetic polymer that is typically used as a viscosity modifier. Its benefits include a light after-feel on the skin and soft film, which is why it is frequently used in serums. It can form transparent gels and suspend some oils and particulates.
Anthemis Nobilis Flower Extract
Est. %5
Function
Origin
An antioxidant and soothing flower extract derived from Roman chamomile. It contains an essential oil that gives it a sweet and floral aroma.
Centaurea Cyanus Flower Extract
Est. %3
Function
Origin
Obtained from the cornflower, this extract contains antioxidant and astringent protocyanin, anthocyanins, flavonoids, and organic acids.
Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Root Extract
Est. %2.5
Function
Origin
An antioxidant extract derived from carrots. It is a rich source of the orange-colored beta-carotene (pro-vitamin A). Carrot root extract is often added to skincare products that are aimed at providing a better suntan.
Panthenol
Est. %2
Function
Origin
A popular soothing and moisturizing derivative of vitamin B5. Panthenol is particularly beneficial for dry, flaking, burned, or damaged skin. It is used to alleviate the symptoms of a rash, dermatitis, eczema, chapped lips, and sunburn.
Retinyl Palmitate

Est. %0.3
Function

An antimicrobial agent that provides broad spectrum protection.
Methylparaben
Est. %0.3

Origin
A sodium salt of famous hyaluronic acid. A potent humectant that hydrates the skin, supports collagen function, and fills out small wrinkles. Sodium hyaluronate also offers soothing and antioxidant properties.
