Beta Glucan
yeast source
Beta 1-3 Glucan (Yeast) boosts the immune system's responses. It is often used in skin care formulas intended for tissue regeneration, antibacterial creams, and antibiotics. Beta Glucan has been shown to reduce the production of free radicals.
Beta Glucan
oat source
Beta 1-3, 1-4 Glucan (Oat) is used as an anti-inflammatory, for the promotion of collagen production, to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and for scar and wound care. This skin care ingredient has the ability to penetrate deep into the skin, and has long been used for its healing affects.
Niacinaminde
Vitamin B3
Niacinamide, Vitamin B3, decreases inflammation, decreases oiliness, alleviates atopic dermatitis from acne, decreases UV induced skin cancers, helps decrease hyper-pigmentation and increases synthesis of collagen, and is a coenzyme factor of Vitamin B.

Regular use of clay facials will remove dead skin cells, improve circulation to the skin, remove debris from the pores and bring about a smooth healthy glow.
Gamma aminobutyric acid
GABA
GABA, gamma amino butyric acid, is an inhibitory neurotransmitter that decreases or inhibits nerve and muscle function. When using GABA topically it may help relax facial nerves and muscles that create lines and wrinkles. Dr. Barry Eppley, board-certified plastic surgeon, notes that GABA is a peptide, which he says is important for building up collagen formation. Collagen helps keep skin firm, filling out lines and wrinkles for smoother skin. Also has skin lightening properties.

Whey isolate is a high quality source of proteins and amino acids that initiate the growth of new skin cells. Whey protein also contains components with protective anti-microbial properties, such as lactoferrin.
CoEnzyme Q, CoQ10
CoEnzymeQ10 is a potent antioxidant with effective anti-aging & anti-wrinkle properties, reinforces collagen & elastin production of connective tissue, potent moisturizer (liposomes penetrate into skin preventing water-loss). Also known as ubiquinone, ubidecarenone, CoQ10 or simply Q. Involved in generating energy in form of ATP.
Alpha Lipoic Acid
ALA
Alpha Lipoic Acid, ALA, is an extremely potent anti-oxidant that is both water and fat-soluble. Alpha Lipoic Acid helps Vitamins C and E work more effectively in the skin. It has anti-inflammatory qualities, which can be helpful in reducing the redness associated with rosacea, acne and sensitive skin types.
