Rosa Arctica (Haberlea rhodopensis)
Known as a regeneration flower, it is able to survive up to 31 months in a dry-out cycle, by falling into anabiosis. When proper moisture conditions are restored, it returns to life within hours. On skin, it works to jolt cellular vitality, stimulating skin's own collagen and elastin production.
Naturally occurring in plant leaves and skin, Vitamin E helps neutralize skin-damaging free radicals and has soothing moisturizing properties.
Squalane (Perhydrosqualene or perhydrosqualene vegetal) A signature Kiehl’s ingredient, Squalane is a botanical lipid that is similar in molecular structure to natural skin lipids. It has an exceptional affinity to skin, and because it’s easily absorbed, Squalane helps restore skin’s natural moisture balance to keep it extra soft and supple.
This formula also contains cocoa and shea butters and essential fatty acids such as oleic, stearic and palmatic acid to help replenish skin's barrier.
