● Encapsulated retinaldehyde is a stable, less irritating precursor to retinoic acid. Because it is encapsulated, its power is released slowly, making it especially well suited for all skin types, including sensitive skin. This intelligent ingredient can be found in correctives for pro-youth, UVA and antimicrobial support.
● Epidermal growth factor (EGF) is an oligopeptide and protein found in fibroblast cells in the dermal layer that acts as a cell regenerator to stimulate collagen production, cell renewal and the formation of new blood vessels, support tissue regeneration, wound repair and wrinkle reduction.
● Perfection peptide (Hexanoyl dipeptide-3 norleucine acetate) is a biomimetic tripeptide complex encapsulated into liposomes to allow the epidermis to communicate more effectively with the dermis, which is vital to collagen production.
● Organic stem cells are essential to plant growth and the rebuilding of damaged tissues. Their healing and protective abilities can also be replicated in human cells to support cell rejuvenation, preserve lipids and increase antioxidant activity. Like other intelligent ingredients, the efficacy of stem cells hinges on being used in their chirally correct forms. Additionally, when paired with a vitamin C, it increases antioxidant activity and inhibits the production of collagenases.
