Syn-Coll- A small peptide that mimics the human body’s own mechanism to produce collagen. Studies have shown that this deep penetrating bioactive ingredient helps improve the depth of wrinkles. It is firming and moisturising.
Snap 8 - an anti-wrinkle octapeptide consisting of a chain of 8 amino acids. It reduces the depth of wrinkles, and prevents expression lines by moderating muscle contraction. Tests revealed that wrinkle depth was reduced by 63% in one month of treatment, making the face look smoother.
Hyaluronic Acid - We use a high content of newly developed form of Hyaluronic Acid that has both a high and low molecular weight. The low molecular weight is less commonly found on the market, it is a smaller particle and therefore penetrates the skin more effectively, yet it still has the same capacity to hold and bind the same amount of water as the high molecular weight form. Hyaluronic Acids claim to fame is that it has the capacity to hold 1,000 times its weight in water, therefore plumping the skin. Our body naturally produces it, but the productions starts to decrease in our early 20’s. The results of its diminished production become visible around age 30. iKOU Hyaluronic Acid is plant sourced and suitable for vegans.
White Flannel Flower - Peak flavone glycosides, which are strong antioxidants that reduce the creation of free radicals and prevent ageing. Glycosides are used for two reasons in natural skincare, they help deliver other vital ingredients so they absorb into the skin & they hydrate the skin by binding onto water molecules. Provides potent antioxidant protection & supports healthy immune system function. Supports healthy collagen production, the main component of connective tissue. They work synergistically with Vitamin C, stabilising and increasing the antioxidant activity of the vitamin effects. Peak Phenolic acids which have anti-inflammatory action to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They behave like an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) by promoting new cell growth so the top layers of the skin surface naturally shed to reveal new skin with strong skin growth following behind. Potent antioxidants.
