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.


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.

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.
