Encapsulated and stabilised vitamin C, which is extracted from plants and fruits. When applied to the skin, the enzyme alpha-glucosidase causes the bond to break, gradually releasing vitamin C. Originally, AA2G was developed in Japan as a semi-pharmaceutical for brightening the complexion. It suppresses melanin synthesis in melanocytes, reduces the amount of pre-existing melanin in the skin and, in the process, stimulates collagen production in the fibroblast. In addition, AA2G inhibits free radicals, which are produced when exposed to UV radiation and cause epidermal damage and erythema. By gradually releasing vitamin C, it thus helps reduce irritation and swelling. Expression wrinkles will also become less visible.

Vitamin B complex
B vitamins help maintain healthy skin. A deficiency of these vitamins is variously demonstrated through seborrhoeic inflammation, dry and flaky skin and fissures at the corners of the mouth. Because of its natural protein and carbohydrate content, the complex is more effective than the individual vitamins themselves. The complex provides optimal, balanced skin care.
Ester of methyl alcohol and nicotinic acid. Improves dry or damaged skin by reducing flaking and restoring suppleness. Moisturiser and activator of blood flow.
Contributes intensively to the skin regeneration and stimulates wound healing. Improves natural epidermal barrier function and epidermal moisture levels and reduces transepidermal moisture loss.
This skin-identical vitamin ensures the production of fatty acids and keeps the skin healthy and supple. Biotin deficiency can cause the skin to become red and flaky.
