About this deal

Regarding the skin-brightening properties of pure vitamin C, this is another magic property AP does not have, or at least there is no data, not even in-vitro, about it. Bottom line: If you wanna get serious about retinoids, RP is not your ingredient ( retinol or tretinoin is! So now you know that pure vitamin C (aka ascorbic acid, AA) is really unstable and hard to formulate so the cosmetics industry is coming up with a bunch of derivatives to solve the problem and Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (or MAP) is one of them.

Another positive finding was that LFL stimulated the production of antimicrobial peptides that play an important role in the immunocompetence of the skin cells. Thanks to its water-binding ability, it also prevents the drying out of formulas, especially when combined with the fellow hygroscopic agent, sorbitol. It was only an in-vitro study meaning that it was done on cell cultures and not on real people, but still, this also does not support the use of AP too much. It’s one of the “EU 26 fragrances” that has to be labelled separately (and cannot be simply included in the term “fragrance/perfume” on the label) because of allergen potential.

Though its long name does not reveal it, this polymer molecule (big molecule from repeated subunits or monomers) is a relative to the super common, water-loving thickener, Carbomer. It’s definitely a smart thing to avoid with sensitive skin (and fragrance of any type - natural is just as allergic as synthetic, if not worse! It also gives a "slow-release" effect to oil-loving active ingredients and measurably reduces trans-epidermal water loss (that's pretty much a synonym of saying that it moisturizes the skin). The combination of innovative lightening technology and rejuvenating oil and arctic cloudberry extract, which has an antioxidant effect. It can be used in many types of formulations as it has great thermal stability (can be heated up to 85°C) and works on a wide range of pH levels (ph 3-10).

Once inside the skin, it hydrates, but not from the outside - putting pure water on the skin (hello long baths! A great study in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology compared a bunch of vitamin C derivatives and this derivative was the only one where the study said in terms of stability that it's "similar to AA".It helps the skin to repair sun damage, calm down inflammation and keep maintain good levels of moisture.

LFL also had a positive influence on epidermal growth and on the thickness of the stratum corneum (the outermost layer of the skin). A powerful cocktail of Cloudberry Seed Extract and Vitamin C works to brighten and balance dull skin, whilst Hyaluronic Acid and Arctic Spring Water help to support and strengthen the natural moisture barrier for long-lasting hydration.

Limonene's nr1 function is definitely being a fragrance component, but there are several studies showing that it's also a penetration enhancer, mainly for oil-loving components. One more thing: the water used in cosmetics is purified and deionized (it means that almost all of the mineral ions inside it is removed).The antioxidant-rich formula will ensure you wake up to skin that looks well-rested, clear and radiant. The reason for this is that salt acts as a fantastic thickener in cleansing formulas created with ionic cleansing agents (aka surfactants) such as Sodium Laureth Sulfate.
