FREE FROM LIST
Australian Lemon Myrtle Extract

A polyphenol-rich botanical that helps protect skin against environmental oxidation and aggressors such as pollution that can trigger overproduction of oil. Known to help reduce irritation and balance sebum levels.

Rice Bran Oil

A plant-based antioxidant powerhouse that protects against free radicals and visible signs of premature aging. With a high concentration of oleic and linolenic acids, it is ideal for acne prone skin. This multitasking active provides hydration without clogging pores, for skin that is supple, soft and smooth.

Triple Hydration Complex

Our light face cream contains an innovative, ultra-hydrating skincare technology that maintains skin hydration and firmness while strengthening the skin’s protective barrier to prevent trans-epidermal water loss.

Baobab Leaf Extract

A renewing plant extract that improves skin elasticity and tone while helping our light face moisturizer lift, smooth, and enhance the appearance of wrinkles and visible signs of fatigue.

Calming Duo

With a blend of potent botanical compounds derived from Wetland Grasses and the Poria Mushroom, our calming duo helps our light face cream calm irritation and redness while strengthening the skin barrier and increasing resilience from external stressors.

Aloe Vera

An anti-oxidant-rich, anti-inflammatory prized for its powerful calming and rebalancing properties - reducing redness and comforting irritated, reactive skin, while flooding skin with moisture.

Bio-Optimized Green Tea

A potent, detoxifying molecule, known to be 25x more effective than Vitamin C. Helps to relieve irritation, protects against free radicals, and helps to maintain the natural life cycle of collagen in the skin. For a complexion that is smooth, toned and more resilient.

A mattifying moisturizer, The Light Cream, with our patented TFC8® technology, has a unique capacity to specifically address sebum overproduction while maintaining optimal hydration and protection. Understanding the normal physiology of skin renewal at a cellular level has enabled us to develop a lightweight formula that meets the needs of combination to oily skin types and performs in humid and congested climates. It is exceptionally effective at preventing excess shine while returning the complexion to a balanced, healthy-looking state.
