A sugar molecule that occurs naturally in the skin - which accounts for half of your body’s total output. As an ingredient, it’s primarily made by bacteria in a lab via a process called biofermentation.
It’s hydrating. It’s unique function is its capacity to retain moisture - holding over 1000 times its weight in water.
It regulates collagen production. It binds water to collagen, helping to stimulate its production more efficiently. Hydrated skin is functioning skin. Functioning skin is healthy skin.
It plays a key role in wound healing. Concentrations in the skin increase when there is damage in need of repair. It helps wounds heal faster by regulating inflammation levels and signaling the body to build more blood vessels in the damaged area.
It’s anti-aging. Your body’s turnover rate of hyaluronic acid is dynamic - it renews itself after less than a day. Due to aging, that turnover rate slows - resulting in a degradation of the principle molecule responsible for binding and retaining water molecules. This equates to a loss of skin hydration, diminished elasticity, restricted production of collagen and elastin, and a compromised skin barrier.
It’s also known as a postbiotic - an ingredient that naturally occurs as probiotics found in skin's microbiome break down, helping to rebuild your skin’s unique microbiome.

A family of wax-like fats that make up 50% of your skin barrier. They hold your skin cells together.
Age, sun damage, over-cleansing and exfoliating lead to a degradation of ceramides in your skin. Replenishing them is crucial to a properly functioning skin barrier.
A properly functioning skin barrier keeps harmful bacteria and toxins from being absorbed through the skin. It keeps skin hydrated - locking in moisture and preventing water loss. It protects the skin - from environmental aggressors and pollution. It reduces the signs of ageing. It calms inflammation - which can lead to eczema, rosacea, acne and psoriasis. It softens and smoothes the skin.
Formula 01: The Face Lotion has been formulated with ceramides, cholesterol, and olive-derived fatty acids Sorbitan Olivate and Cetaryl Olivate at a 1:2:1 ratio for optimal effectiveness and permeability. It also contains Phytosphingosine - a precursor that promotes the natural production of ceramides in the skin.

It’s a glutamic acid polypeptide.
It’s a hydration powerhouse. A humectant that holds over 4 times as much moisture as hyaluronic acid - nearly 5000 times its weight in water. It also increases the production of your body’s natural moisturizing factors carboxylic acid, lactic acid, pyrrolidone and urocanic acid.
It works synergistically with hyaluronic acid. It helps your body maintain an efficient production of it by inhibiting the action of the enzyme hyaluronidase that breaks down Hyaluronic Acid as we age. Hyaluronic acid reduces the effects of wrinkles and aging by improving skin hydration and stimulating the production of collagen and elastin.

This type of collagen has essentially been broken down into tiny molecules to enhance skin barrier permeability. There is no research yet demonstrating that these smaller molecules have an effect on collagen synthesis once they penetrate the skin.
When applied topically, collagen helps moisturize skin. It creates a filter-like effect that works to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
It’s a humectant. It helps bind moisture to the skin and lock it in for lasting hydration.

It’s extremely hydrating. A compound we naturally produce that locks in hydration by creating a lightweight yet protective barrier on the skin's surface.
It regulates oil production by mimicking our skin’s natural sebum production. It’s recognized by other lipids present in skin such as ceramides and cholesterol, where it works to visibly repair the skin barrier.

One of the natural moisturizing factors found in your skin.
It’s a humectant. It keeps your skin moist by drawing water from the deeper layers of your skin and the air.
It’s exfoliating. Known as a keratolytic agent, it breaks down the protein keratin in the outer layer of your skin. This action improves skin-cell turnover, reduces dead skin buildup and sloughs off flaking or scaling skin - essentially removing that rough top layer to allow moisture to reach deep down. This also improves the penetration of other biologically active ingredients.
It also has mild anti-fungal properties.

It’s an extract from the comfrey plant.
It’s moisturizing and hydrating - acting as an emollient to prevent water-loss, dryness and irritation. It’s a calming agent - soothing and protecting the skin by forming complexes with irritant and sensitizing agents.
It improves healing - soothing injured and irritated skin. It’s keratolytic - with gentle exfoliating properties helping to slough off dead skin cells and promote healthy turnover. It improves skin dullness and brightness.
It helps facilitate the synthesis of collagen - stimulating the fibroblasts and boosting extracellular matrix synthesis.
