Lutein is extracted from the African marigold (Targetes erecta), a flower that symbolizes the brilliance of life. It is a yellow-orange pigment found abundantly in green-yellow vegetables such as spinach, broccoli, and kale. Lutein is naturally present in the human body, and helps to protect the moisture in the hair and skin.
Dr Ronald Pero, a DNA researcher at LUND University in Sweden, discovered the cat’s claw vine in deep in the Amazon region after a botanical study spanning more than 30 years and over 250 species of plants. For over 2000 years, native inhabitants of the Amazon region have made use of the cat’s claw vine by roasting the plant and infusing it into tea. AC-11 – which is extracted by boiling the bark of the cat’s claw vine, is known for its skin- and hair-conditioning properties.
Natural clay mineral mined from Jurassic deposits at the foot of the Atlas Mountains of North Africa and Morocco. Not only it is rich in natural minerals, it is also a type of smectite clay and can absorb water and organic matter. The same property allows it to capture and remove dirt and impurities from the surface of our skin.
Lipidure® was modelled after phospholipids, which make up the human cell membrane and are also found in tears. It creates a hydrating veil with excellent moisture retention capability, comprising about 2000 molecules. Lipidure® can retain about twice as much moisture as hyaluronic acid.
