Hydrating Eye Gel
A light, silky Hyaluronic based gel that rejuvenates and provides the eye area with a dewy look. Contains a powerful blend of 6 peptides for minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles plus Green Tea and soothing Vitamins B3 and B5. Fragrance-free.
- Low, medium, and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid
- Revitalizes and reduces the appearance of under-eye puffiness
- Enhanced with peptides and niacinamide to hydrate, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and increase microcirculation
HYALURONIC ACID (SODIUM HYALURONATE)
A hydrophilic molecule, Hyaluronic acid attracts and binds up to 1,000 times its molecular weight in water, reduces TEWL (trans-epidermal water loss), and helps to keep skin plump and firm. Sodium Hyaluronate is a glycosaminoglycan found in the extracellular space that resists compression by absorbing significant amounts of water.
PANTHENOL (VITAMIN B5)
Enables the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids, increasing cellular integrity and efficiency. Acts as a moisturizer with humectant properties.
NIACINAMIDE (VITAMIN B3)
Promotes microcirculation, strengthens the skin’s outer layers, improves elasticity, and curbs redness and irritation. Helpful for treating dry skin due to its ability to increase barrier lipid levels. Has anti-inflammatory properties (which helps reduce redness), anti-bacterial properties, and melanin inhibiting properties.
Reduces inflammatory cytokines, known as interleukins. By reducing inflammation, palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7 may potentially reduce the cumulative amount of damage that occurs following exposure to UV light, pollution, internal stress, and other pro-inflammatory factors. Cells exposed to UV radiation and then treated with palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7 saw an 86% reduction of interleukin production.
ACETYL HEXAPEPTIDE-8 (ARGIRILINE)
A peptide which inhibits the formation and progression of expression-related fine lines and wrinkles.
This peptide has been shown to stimulate the production of a protein called fibronectin, which among other things helps attach the epidermis to the dermis. The more fibronectin, the firmer, more youthful the skin becomes.
A synthetic peptide that has calming, smoothing, hydrating, and firmness-enhancing benefits when applied to the skin. Acetyl tetrapeptide-5 is a four amino-acid peptide that is claimed to improve puffy eye bags via its anti-oedema and anti-glycation effects.
A five amino-acid peptide that is claimed to target expression wrinkles that appear due to facial movements, pentapeptide-18 reduces the depth of wrinkles on the face caused by the contraction of muscles, especially in the forehead and around the eyes.
GREEN TEA EXTRACT (CAMELLIA OLEIFERA)
A potent antioxidant that inhibits DNA damage by counteracting oxidative stress. Possesses anti-inflammatory properties and helps to treat immunosuppression. When used for its caffeine containing properties, green tea constricts blood vessels in the skin and reduces water leakage. This ingredient also alleviates puffiness and under-eye darkness.
A substance known for its healing, soothing, and anti-irritating properties. This ingredient softens skin and stimulates the formation of healthy tissue. Helps eliminate chapping and cracking, leaving skin silky, smooth, and healthy-looking.
SODIUM CHONDROITIN SULFATE
A derivative of a natural mucopolysaccharide, this ingredient is used as a skin conditioning agent due to its ability to moisturize, heal, and soothe skin by means of anti-inflammatory properties. It is capable of reinforcing the skin’s intercellular matrix and, along with other mucopolysaccharides, is thought to be responsible for the elasticity, resilience and strength of the skin.
A fatty alcohol used as an emollient, emulsifier, thickener, and carrying agent for other ingredients. A firm, wax-like substance derived from plant oils, Cetearyl alcohol has emulsifying properties to hydrate skin and hair, leaving it soft and supple.
