Our goal at Skinesque is to deliver innovative and effective products that help you maintain your best skin, and we know that good formulations start with good ingredients. That’s why we love using clean and natural ingredients that are also effective. Here are some of the ingredients that star in our collection:
CICA: Centella Asiatica, or CICA for short, is a plant that was originally used to treat wounds. Filled with amino acids, fatty acids, and vitamins, CICA helps strengthen and protect your skin while also calming and soothing. That is why our Moisture Lock Cream is made up of 70% CICA! It’ll keep you hydrated and glowy, and we want you to feel great in your skin.
Ceramides: Ceramides are lipids (fats) that form a protective layer over the skin and make up over 50% of our skin’s composition. They help lock in moisture while keeping harmful elements out. Ceramides help restore and strengthen the skin barrier, keeping your skin healthy and soft.
Niacinamide: Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3 that treats irritated skin and reduces inflammation. It is involved in regulating the skin’s oil production, which helps minimize the appearance of pores. Niacinamide also treats hyperpigmentation and brightens the skin.
Papaya Enzymes: Papain, the enzyme found in papaya, helps break down proteins that have accumulated on the skin and remove dead skin cells. This makes papaya enzymes a great natural and gentle exfoliant. It also contains vitamins, antioxidants, and AHAs, which brighten and clear the skin. Papaya enzymes work perfectly in our Enzyme Cleansing Powder.
Charcoal Powder: Charcoal powder, the hero ingredient in our Brightening Charcoal Sheet Mask, helps detoxify the skin and improve texture and appearance. It is antibacterial and a natural exfoliant, helping remove dirt and impurities from the skin. It essentially gives you that clean, healthy, natural glow!
Peach Flower Extract: Peach flower extract contains antioxidants, vitamins, and essential fatty acids that help nourish and protect your skin from particle pollution and the sun. It soothes, moisturizes and brightens. Peach flowers also contain collagen protective properties that restore the skin’s natural glow. Find them in our Wakeup and Makeup Prep Sheet Masks!
