The most popular active ingredients in cosmetics
TRANEXAMIC ACID – SKIN-LIGHTENING INGREDIENT

Pure ascorbic acid, however, quickly oxidizes and has little chance of getting into the skin. Vitamin C is also a strong antioxidant, supports the production of collagen and, above all, it makes the skin shiny.
STEM CELLS – TOTAL SKIN RENOVATION
Nowadays, cosmetologists obtain stem cells from plants whose small cells have the best biocompatibility with humans. The most popular are those obtained from apple, argania, ribwort plantain, acai berries, edelweiss. Why stem cells have become such an innovation in cosmetics? It turns out that they affect the regeneration of our own stem cells like no other components. If they worked all the time with the same power – skin aging would be completely stopped. Some people believe that stem cells are the secret of longevity. It turns out that stem cells are able to transform into the form of absolutely every cell in our body and replace the ‘used’ cells. With age, the level and vitality of stem cells decreases, so it’s important to provide the body with new biocompatible cells.
