Here are five of the best ingredients to look for in your skincare products.


Oh, collagen! 

You’ve probably heard about this protein before, as it’s quite popular in the skincare world. Collagen is a vital component of our skin, providing hydration, elasticity, and a youthful glow. 

Sadly, our natural collagen production decreases as we age, leading to fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and other signs of aging. But you can incorporate it into your skincare routine with natural products that have collagen in their formulas.

Collagen can be found in a variety of skincare products, like creams, serums, and masks. By using products with collagen, you can help support your body’s natural collagen production and keep your skin looking youthful and radiant - products like our BOTANICAL LIFT EYE GEL.

This quick-absorbing wake-up call for your eye features Lupin Seed Collagen, a natural source that renews your skin’s protective barrier while boosting collagen production within your skin. 


Our bodies naturally produce hyaluronic acid, which is responsible for keeping our skin hydrated and moisturized by retaining water. 

As we age, our natural production of this essential substance decreases, which can lead to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles along with a compromised moisture barrier.

That’s where skincare products containing this ingredient come in. By incorporating it into your routine with products like our BAKUCHIOL WONDER SERUM, you’ll have no problem keeping your skin hydrated and moisturized. 

That’s because hyaluronic acid is a humectant, meaning it naturally pulls moisture into the skin and holds it there to lock in hydration and keep skin flexible and youthful. 


These two acids are among the most popular exfoliating ingredients you’ll find on the skincare market. They’re usually found together and work wonders for all skin types.

AHAs, or alpha hydroxy acids, are ideal for normal to dry skin. They help to slough away dead skin cells and reveal those fresh skin cells underneath, giving your skin a smooth, bright look. 

Glycolic acid, an AHA, is found in our DEEP ENZYME CLEANSE, along with fruit enzymes to lightly exfoliate and sweep away dead skin cells without irritation. 

On the other hand, BHAs, or beta hydroxy acids, are perfect for normal to oily skin or skin that is acne prone. BHAs penetrate below the skin’s surface, exfoliating pores directly. 

This prevents the build-up of dead skin and sebum that leads to clogged and stretched-out pores, allowing oil to flow more freely. 

Salicylic acid, a BHA, is found in our CLARIFYING SERUM, ungluing dead skin cells to unclog pores without causing irritation. 


If you’ve been struggling to improve your complexion despite trying numerous skincare products, you might be missing a key solution:

Vitamin C. 

This ingredient is full of benefits for your skin, between helping to even out skin tone, reduce the appearance of dark spots, prevent premature signs of aging (fine lines/wrinkles), and even stimulate collagen production. 

Vitamin C is also helpful for treating dull skin and light scarring, making it great for people with acne-prone skin, which is why it makes up 20% of our PLUMPING SERUM’s formula in the form of ascorbic acid, the most potent form of Vitamin C on the market. 


Imagine your skin is a wall, with each cell being a brick and the mortar being lipids, named ceramides. As we age, the level of ceramides in our skin decreases, leading to dryness, irritation, and increased vulnerability to environmental stressors. 

The good news is that skincare products infused with ceramides can replenish the skin’s natural barrier and maintain its elasticity, leaving it supple and smooth. 

Ceramides are available in spades in our BAKUCHIOL WONDER SERUM, working to protect skin from pollutants and skin damage, retain moisture, and hold skin cells tightly together.

In conclusion, taking care of our skin is essential for maintaining a healthy and youthful appearance. 

Remember to always pay attention to your skincare products and their ingredients, choosing those that work best for your skin type. By making a conscious effort to take care of your skin, you can feel confident and beautiful at any age.
