Salicylic Acid

Works by softening the intracellular cement and decreasing cell-to-cell adhesion, encouraging the shedding of cells in the stratum corneum layer of the skin. It is effective on acne, as it encourages the peeling of the top layer of skin and the opening of plugged follicles.

Ellagic Acid corrects damage and evens complexion and helps prevent future skin discoloration. The extract is obtained from the Tara shrub.

Licorice Extract is a potent skin brightener; blocks skin enzyme responsible for the pigmentation process; known for its soothing properties

Mulberry Flower Extract helps prevent melanin production; brightens skin complexion
