Lipoic Acid

Lipoic acid slows down ageing of the skin in many ways: as a highly concentrated antioxidant it supports functioning of the mitochodria, the powerhouses of the cells. Further, it blocks free radicals before these can start their damaging work on the cells. And even further it protects collagen from attacks by aggressive proteins.


Arabinoxylo-Oligosaccharides is a natural sugar polymer of plant origin. It stops melanine production at the source when used against hyper-pigmentation  in blocking the enzyme tyrosinase and the protein trp-1. In addition it brightens the skin sustainably and offers effective cell, DNA and protein protection.

Glyceryl linoleate are highly unsaturated fatty acids (vitamin F). They improve the barrier function of dry skin, normalize moisture of the skin and regulate sebum activity.

Glycolic Acid

Glycolic acid is the best known natural fruit acid and is made from sugar cane. Gentle, but thoroughly it removes dead skin scales from the surface of the skin, reduces their thickness and softens them. Fine lines and small wrinkles are smoothed out. The soft tingling sensation following application proves that blood circulation is stimulated and that skin is optimally prepared for the substances to follow, e.g. vitamins. Used for hyper-pigmentation, Glycolic acids aids in brightening of the skin.

Silicic Acid (Silica)

As an anorganical gel builder, silicic acid is usually made from diatoms and from horsetail. The form silica has small particles and a high ability to bind water. It gives a mat finish and removes grease.


L-Fucose is a rare, natural monosaccharid and must by no means be mistaken for fructose, the common fruit sugar. As one of the eight essential sugars, which our organism needs to function properly, L-Fucose in the skin plays a vital part as a membrane sugar and is therefore also named as a glyco nutrient against ageing of the skin. By stimulating elastin synthesis and glycosaminoglycansynthesis (gag), L-Fucose reduces wrinkles.


Lecithin can be found as part of the human body in every cell membrane. Its excellent, water-binding qualities have a very positive effect on dry skin. It is being said that lecithin also improves the absorption of nutrients through the skin.

Linolelic Acid

Linolelic acid is one of the essential fatty acids and is not produced by the body. It is changed in the skin into ceramides amongst others, reduces the transepidermal water loss and regulates sebum gland function.


Lipodipeptide stimulate elastinsynthese and promote protein and enzyme activity of the skin. They contribute to preventing the skin losing its elasticity prematurely.

Almond Oil (Prunus Dulcis)

Almond oil was already used in ancient times for the production of high quality cosmetics. The oil contains high quality fatty acids which give skin a silky appearance.


As a result of many years of research, the Institute Fraunhofer has developed a procedure, in which pure silver is transformed into micro ions with antibacterial and antimicrobial qualities. Equipped with a depot effect, they help to improve the condition of skin with a tendency to itchiness, redness and inflammations sustainably. Especially dry and atrophic skin relaxes and is soothed. Patients with atopic dermatitis, psoriasis and rosacea report of a noticeable relieve of conditions after using products with MicroSilver.

Lactic Acid

As a natural component of the skin’s acid protection barrier, lactic acid is a fruit acid or AHA. Gentle but thoroughly it removes dead skin from the surface, reduces their thickness and softens them. Fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed out. The soft tingling sensation following application is prove for a stimulation of the blood circulation and that skin is optimally prepared for the nutrients to follow, like e.g. vitamins. Used in hyper-pigmentation, lactic acid aids in brightening of the skin.


Proteins which are collagen fragments combined with palmitin acid are named palmitoyl-oligopeptides. Research could prove that they stimulate the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid and aid in the thickening of the skin, smooth rough surfaces and have a visible line reducing effect.

Omega-6 Fatty Acids

Polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acids are essential for the body, as they contain important functions for the cell membrane. They support the barrier function of the skin and reduce transepidermal water loss.


As a preliminary stage of the enzyme tyrasinase, phenylalanin is an essential amino acid which supports an increase in melanine synthesis and thus promotes an even skin tone.


Phyantriol increases the effect of vitamins on the skin and carries them through the epidermical barrier.

Natural Proteins

Natural proteins are highly molecular, native proteins which are extracted from Argan seeds. They create an instant tightening effect and visible smoothing of the skin.

Sheabutter (Butyrospermum Parkii)

Sheabutter - also know as Karitébutter - is made from the seeds of the Sheanut tree. It takes its place in between triglycerides and waxes. The fatty mass is 50% triglycerides, 7% waxes and around 30% non-saponifiable fats and oils. This includes squalene (a skin’s own substance, preliminary stage to cholesterol) and phytosterine (plant substance similar to cholesterol). Sheabutter softens the skin and reduces its tendency for irritation.

Sucrose is of plant origin and has moisture-containing and smoothing qualities.

Mikronised Titaniumdioxid (CI 77891)

Mikronised titaniumoxid describes micro fine pigments which reflect UV light and thus protect skin from damaging influence by sun light. The micro pigments are so small that they do not leave a white film on the skin.


Urea has been used in cosmetics for centuries as a natural component of the skin. It is in fact a final product of the skin’s metabolism, which is excreted when building the hydrolipid barrier. Urea helps cells to connect with each other, supports intake of nutrients, is antibacterial, relieves itchiness and is anti-inflammatory.

Vitamin A (Retinyl Palmitat)

Retinyl palmitat is a very stable and skin tolerant form of vitamin A. It is changed into retinol by enzymes in the skin, easily absorbed via the cell walls and then changed again into retinoic acid. By taking this little detour, the skin gains from the positive effect of the retinoic acid without any side effects, which would occur with a direct, external application. Vitamin A supports growth of keratinozytes, improves the immune system of the skin, stabilizes pigment cells, improves natural moisture and leaves the skin’s surface looking soft and smooth.

Contained e.g. in egg yolk, dry yeast and oats, biotin as a water-soluble vitamin is part of a number of metabolic procedures. It ensures normal cell development and an uninterrupted growth of cells.

Vitamin C (Ascorbinsäure)

Due to its varied effects, the water-soluble vitamin C is something of a well of youth for the skin. It encourages production of collagen and slows down its withdrawal at the same time. Tissue is strengthened, skin appears more youthful. Further, vitamin C protects from attacks by free radicals as a result of too much sun, nicotine or damaging environmental influences.

Vitamin E (Tocopherol)

The oily-moist membrane of the cells mainly consists of unsaturated fatty acids and has a tendency to oxidation, which can lead to premature ageing of skin. Vitamin E, a fat-soluble vitamin, works against this in many ways. It strengthens the natural UV protection of the skin as a strong antioxidant and stops building of free radicals before these can damage skin cells. Further it reduces the transepidermal water loss. Fine lines are smoothed out, the resistance of the skin against damaging external influences is increased.
