What is it doing: It is a combination of retinol (pure vitamin A) and the fatty acid palmitic acid. It is an excellent and safe skin-like ingredient as it is found naturally in your skin, where it works as an effective antioxidant, particularly in regard to helping protect skin from UV light exposure. This ingredient has great research which has shown it to be an effective antioxidant when applied in a safe amount to the skin.
