Betaine is a naturally derived ingredient, an amino acid. Also known as Trimethylglycine or glycinebetaine. It is obtained from the process of making sugar out of sugar beets. Being an osmolyte, its structure allows to attract water and help maintain cell water balance. Betaine reduces the ability of water molecules to solvate proteins, thus stabilizing the native protein structures. It primarily functions as a humectant and anti-irritant in cosmetic products, is prone to hydrogen bonding. It is identified as anti-melanogenic agent. Accumulated evidence has shown that betaine has anti-inflammatory functions in numerous diseases.
Gluconolactone is white crystalline powder derived from gluconic acid received from vegetable raw materials. Gluconic acid, found abundantly in plant, honey and wine, is a mild organic acid derived from glucose by a simple oxidation reaction. It’s a polyhydroxy acid (PHA), that is often referred to as next generation AHA. It gently lifts off dead skin cells form the skin surface making skin smooth and even. In the long term it provides anti-aging benefits. It has comparable skin benefits to AHAs but without the irritation as a side effect.
A comparative study of gluconolactone versus benzoyl peroxide in the treatment of acne. The results of this study showed that both gluconolactone and benzoyl peroxide had a significant effect in improving patients' acne by reducing the number of lesions (inflamed and non-inflamed). Furthermore, fewer side-effects were experienced by patients treated with gluconolactone when compared with benzoyl peroxide.

Distilled from the flower of Helichrysum plant.This plant is known for its anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic and antimicrobial activity. The studies indicate that the H. italicum extract has an inhibitory effect on Staphylococcus aureus and Candida albicans strains reducing both their growth and some of pro-inflammatory mediators, the enzymes such as coagulase, DNAse, thermonuclease and lipase.
One of the plants being considered as a potential source of prebiotic is yacon. Yacon mainly contains fructooligosaccharides (FOS) and inulin, those are resposable for various nutrigenomic properties, including as a prebiotic for intestinal health and their antimicrobial and antioxidant effects. The yacon juice has potential protective effects forbacterial skin infections due to its anti-staphylococcal properties.
It has shown an inhibitory effect on Staphylococcus aureus and S.acnes. The skin microbiota is in result balanced. It a source of powerful antioxidants, acides, that protect the skin from UV-rays damage.
