There is an ingredient very innovative appeared in this product, I have only seen it in Clarins, vernonia appendiculata leaf extract. This is a plant originated from Madagascar and long used by locals in wound healing and treating stomach ache. According to medical research from pharmaceutical company Bayer, this ingredient offers impressive properties for dermal-epidermal junction (DEJ) repair and dermis stimulation, capable of activating both keratinocyes and fibroblast for DEJ compounds synthesis. Hopefully the ingredient would live up to the claim, "Keep imperfections at bay with this formula's dermal-epidermal junction repair and radiance-boosting action".

Another noteworthy ingredient is glucosyl hesperidin. This ingredient has been scientifically shown to improve circulation when applied to the skin, thus helping to overcome the negative physical effects caused by stress, tiredness and cold. By stimulating surface circulation, glucosyl hesperidin can improve skin tone and colour.

Besides this product is also good in terms of moisturizing and antioxidant effect. The ingredient trehalose is plant sugar that has excellent water-binding properties for skin. The ingredient oryzanol is component of rice bran that has potent antioxidant properties. There are also green tea extract and vitamin E as antioxidants.

On the downside it would be better if it is fragrance and alcohol-free.

Safety alert: Cautious
