Allergen: Allergen is a substance that causes an allergic reaction
Aloe Vera: An emollient resin with hydrating/softening properties.
Aloe Vera Gel – A natural hydrating moisturizer with anti-aging properties. Helps to repair damaged skin tissue. Aloe vera is also known as a carrier, as it helps deliver other vital ingredients to target locations. Its moisturizing ability is its most widely recognized characteristic. Although aloe Vera's important constituents are minerals, polysaccharides, amino acids, and carbohydrates, it is constituted of about 99.5% water. The molecular structure allows Aloe Vera to penetrate the skin, supplying moisture directly to the tissue. Other properties include moisture regulation and an apparent ability to absorb UV light. It has a slightly relaxing effect on the skin, making it beneficial for sensitive, sunburned, and sun-exposed skins.
Althea: Botanical root believed to have emollient and soothing capabilities for skin.
Avocado Oil – Helps as a carrier to transport active substances into the skin. Its skin-benefiting properties include bactericidal and soothing properties. Current speculation among researchers is avocado oil may mobilize and increase the collagen of connective tissue. Avocado Oil has also demonstrated sun-screening characteristics and has been given the highest ranking by the Encyclopedia of Chemical Technology for sunscreen effectiveness when compared to other naturally derived oils such as peanut, olive and coconut. Avocado oil also contains other constituents such as; lecithin, phytosterol, carotinoids, and a high concentration of vitamins A, D and E. The oil is derived from the expression of the seed.
Beta carotene: Orange colored plant pigments, used in the manufacture of vitamin A.

The active principles are a pale blue volatile oil (which may turn yellow with keeping). The chamomile factor is considered a capillary wall constrictor and is used for cooling and healing. It is good for acne, dry and supersensitive skin. And in addition it is noncomedogenic.

Hyaluronic Acid: An acid that occurs naturally in the skin, helps retain the skin's natural moisture.
Hydrolyzed Elastin – Penetration to epidermal layers is possible due to the small molecular size, thereby improving overall skin appearance, softness and suppleness. Also acts as a surface protective agent alleviating the effects of dry skin, enhancing flexibility, improving feel, increasing and improving the tension of the skin, and influencing formation of tropocollagen fibers when used with soluble collagen.
Kojic Acid: Skin-lightening agent.
Lanolin: An emollient with moisturizing properties and an emulsifier with high water absorbing capabilities.
