This can be used as either a day or a night moisturizer depending on your own personal skin care needs.
Aloe contains a plethora of antioxidants including, beta carotene, vitamin C and E that can help improve the skin's natural firmness and keep the skin hydrated.
Glycolic acid is a common component of anti-aging products, such as lotions, because it can refresh skin on the face and tops of hands. It exfoliates the surface layer, making skin look smoother by promoting healthy cell growth to replace the dead skin cells. Glycolic acid lotion may also be beneficial for skin that is prone to acne. It can clear up blocked pores and prevent future breakouts by keeping pores from getting clogged again by dead skin cells. Other skin conditions that glycolic acid might be used for include rosacea, a chronic inflammatory condition often characterized by a red face, and ichthyosis vulgaris, an inherited disease characterized by dry and scaly skin.

Besides its anti-aging effects, it helps maintain healthy skin and helps to increase the water capacity of the skin. Squalane is rapidly absorbed and spreads easily over the skin surface without leaving an oily or greasy feeling. Squalane is a natural part of human skin and plays an important role in the repair of damaged skin.
Hyaluronic Acid is touted for its ability to "reverse" or stop aging. In news reports, you might have heard of hyaluronic acid as the "key to the fountain of youth." This is because the substance occurs naturally (and quite abundantly) in humans and animals, and is found in young skin, other tissues, and joint fluid. Hyaluronic acid is a component of the body’s connective tissues, and is known to cushion and lubricate. As you age, however, the forces of nature destroy hyaluronic acid. Diet and smoking can also affect your body’s level of hyaluronic acid over time. Skin care products with hyaluronic acid are most frequently used to treat wrinkled skin.
CoQ10 has been shown to neutralize free radicals in the skin cells. Oxidation of the cells in our skins is one of the primary causes of wrinkles and aging. Under optimal circumstances, our skin should be able to produce enough of the enzyme to prevent premature aging, but unfortunately, due to high-stress lifestyles, improper diet and some medications, our natural levels of CoQ10 in the body are significantly lowered. The collagen of the skin will also have more pliability and strength with increased levels of CoQ10. Overall, CoQ10 can improve the texture, firmness and tone of the skin.
Acetyl Hexapeptide-3 is touted for its wrinkle relaxing ability. This peptide is said to prevent wrinkles by limiting facial muscle contractions. The use of the peptide helps the product to diminish lines and visible signs of aging.
Dipeptide Diaminobutyroyl Benzylamide Diacetate: In one clinical study, participants demonstrated both immediate and long-term improvements in the appearance of mild and moderate, fine and coarse periocular and perioral wrinkles, as confirmed by both clinical and subject assessments. These results are of particular note since the wrinkles in these facial regions tend to pose a treatment challenge for patients and physicians alike. The early onset of efficacy observed within minutes of application suggests that this unique combination of HA filling spheres and a muscle contraction-inhibiting peptide may work synergistically to promote rapid reductions in wrinkle appearance.
Shea butter: has been used for centuries as a wrinkle reducer. Shea butter contains essential fatty acids, along with vitamins A and E, which are imperative to maintaining your skin's elasticity and suppleness. In a clinical study done by Frank Renard, Ph.D., shea butter was found to have significant antiaging properties and was proven to help rebuild and rejuvenate collagen. Participants in this study were given shea butter to use as a balm to massage on their skin for four to eight months. The results showed clearer, brighter skin; less wrinkles; and even less sun damage.
Phospholipids: Recent studies have shown that topically applied phospholipids, are very effective in mimicking and enhancing the skin’s ability to retain moisture and protect it from external factors. Natural phospholipids contain relatively high amounts of linoleic acid, which play an important role in the human skin`s own synthesis of Ceramide 1, a lipid that is important for intact barrier function. As a result, skin care products can leave the skin soft, hydrated and protected.
Vitamin C: is an antioxidant that is proven to stimulate the synthesis of collagen, which is essential since your body’s natural collagen production decreases as you age. Sun exposure will also accelerate the decrease in collagen. Studies have shown that vitamin C helps to minimize fine lines, scars, and wrinkles.
