Johnny Yu

See the below active ingredients to see why this cream is so great.

Oil of Omega-3, 6, 9:
 They are considered essential nutrients for the skin. Omega 6 polyunsaturated fatty acids play an important role in the structural integrity and barrier function of the skin. Omega 6 and omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids influence the inflammatory response of the skin. Both topical and oral supplementation are effective ways to deliver essential fatty acids to the skin. Topical application of certain omega 3's lessens UV-induced photo damage, signs of skin aging and inflammatory skin responses. The topical application can be a more efficient route of delivery for skin effects. 

Ceramide 3:
resembles the structure of the lipid barrier the skin. Helps to improve the appearance of aged skin by deep moisturizing effects and supply of ceramides (skin-identical lipids). Anti-aging and anti-wrinkle.

Milk Lipids:
Antioxidant. Studies have found that topically applied ceramides can penetrate and accumulate in the skin. Ceramides have important barrier properties in the skin. Lacto-Ceramide can improve the appearance of aging skin and skin irritations. It also nourishes the skin with milk lipids and effectively moisturizes skin due to the liposomes.

Ceramide NP:
One of several types of ceramides, which are naturally occurring, long chains of lipids (fats) that are major components of skin’s outer layers. Research shows moisturizers containing ceramide NP can improve the look and feel of dry skin.

Phytosphingosine:
It is a natural constituent of ceramides in the hydrolipidic skin film. In its free form in the epidermis, it also has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It is therefore a key player in skin homeostasis. Normalisation of the lipid matrix and lipid film. Antibacterial activity. Anti-inflammatory activity.

Hydrophobic Sphincolipid:
Acts as a restoring, replenishing and restructuring active. Restores the adequate moisture balance needed to keep a healthy and beautiful skin. Replenishes the amount of skin lipids, depleted due to aging and environmental factors. Restructures the stratum corneum, allowing an effective isolation of the skin moisture. It contains no surfactants to compromise the delivery of these essential lipids to the functional layers of the stratum corneum. It can be used in two different ways.

Beta Carotene: 
Beta-carotene is considered a provitamin because it converts to an active form of vitamin A called retinol, an essential nutrient that can benefit the skin. Human skin is susceptible to injury, disease and sun exposure that can accelerate aging. Vitamin A can help in wound healing and skin cell turnover for healthier, glowing skin by enhancing immunity, strengthening tissue and moderating skin renewal. A well-regulated system of vitamin A storage, release and activation keeps these functions in check.

Arnica oil:
It is found to have antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties,11 and may be helpful for treating or relieving:

Rosehip seed oil:
It is rich in various essential fatty acids and is high in antioxidants, minerals and vitamins. With this oil, youthful looking skin can be achieved. It will help aging skin become hydrated and remain plump.  •Excellent source of the trans-retinoic acid, which is a necessary component for beautiful skin • Udeal for sensitive or oily skin. • When used regularly, Rosehip can also helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, and scars. • Rosehip oil is considered to be a dry oil, which is one of the reasons it is good for people with oily skin.  • The oil has a short surface time on your skin, because it is absorbed rapidly, it does not leave any type of fatty residue. 

Squalane: 
It is an excellent moisturizer, keeping your skin and your hair properly hydrated and imparting suppleness and flexibility to the skin.
 It is a light and stable version of olive oil squalane, hydrogenated to make it stable and non-oxidative. It is found naturally in the sebum of human skin and is believed to lubricate and protect skin. 

Isododecane: 
It gives a weightless feel on skin, so you don't feel tacky or greasy with this serum. It helps prevent evaporation of water from the skin, so it is a very good moisturizer. It enhances spreadability of products, excellent emollient and can be used as replacement to oils in emulsions. But it is not oil.

Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate:
It is a very stable, oil-soluble Vitamin C ester which has anti-oxidant activity and inhibiting lipid peroxidation. Topical use can mitigate the damaging effects of UV exposure. It stimulate collagen production as well as clarifying and brightening the skin by inhibiting melanogenesis (the production of pigment) thereby promoting a more even skin tone.

Retinol:
Improving the appearance of damaged skin, moisturization, improvement of the appearance of acne, lightening the appearance of skin, improving the appearance of wrinkles, giving the appearance of firm and elastic skin.

Tocopheryl Acetate:
Provides strong antioxidant activity, also moisturizing effects and may improve the appearance of aged skin. Vitamin E has also been found to provide soothing properties and make the skin look younger.

Ubiquinone:
A very powerful antioxidant or free radical scavenger. Coenzyme Q10 and Vitamin E are the only oil-soluble antioxidants naturally present in the epidermis but readily depleted by UV-radiation. Both actives protect the skin from the damaging effects of UV light. Topically applied, this can penetrate the cell layers of the skin and may attenuate the depth of wrinkles due to photo aging, as well as epithelial cell turnover.
