Centella Asiatica Extract: This herb has an interesting history, and has been used in herbal medicine for ages, yet Centella is a relative newcomer to skin care cosmetics.

osemarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract: Topical use includes a help for rheumatism, arthritis, neuralgia, muscular complaints, wounds and reducing skin fragility while boosting the skin in general, since it has a great ability to increase circulation and also contains antioxidants which have anti-ageing properties as they reduce the damage caused by free radicals.

Tocopheryl Acetate, or more commonly known as Vitamin E, is a natural preservative, anti-oxidant and moisturizer. It reduces trans-dermal water loss and helps maintain connective tissue.

Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C source, anti-oxidant), The forms of vitamin C that are proven most stable and effective are: ascorbic acid, L-ascorbic acid, ascorbyl palmitate, sodium ascorbyl phosphate, retinyl ascorbate, tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, and magnesium ascorbyl phosphate. Regardless of marketing hype – there is no one “best” form of topically-applied vitamin C. All antioxidants, including vitamin C, are vulnerable to deterioration in the presence of air and light. If a product containing antioxidants does not come in airtight, opaque packaging, don’t buy it!
Retinyl Acetate (Vitamin A source, Anti-wrinkles, stimulates cell rejuvenation and creates new collagen.
