Moth Bean Seed Extract:
The tiny Moth Bean is a gentle yet potent plant-based Retinol alternative. Found in Southeast Asia, Moth Bean, also known as Vigna Aconitifolia Seed Extract, is a protein-rich legume full of antioxidants. It has been proven to help increase skin-cell turnover, fade dark spots and hyperpigmentation as well as help smooth the look of fine lines and wrinkles — All without the use of harsh, abrasive chemicals. It also contains powerful phenolic compounds that help protect the skin from free-radical damage.
Unlike synthetic retinol, Moth Bean Seed Extract is highly stable and does not cause the same irritation, sun sensitivity, peeling, and redness commonly associated with Retinol.
