A

Adaptogen

Named for their ability to “adapt” to your body’s needs, these nontoxic plants have long been used to help with the physical effects of stress. Common adaptogens are aloe vera, cordyceps mushrooms, ginseng & rosemary—ingredients you probably already know & love.

Aluminum-Free

Notice any irritation from your deodorant? Some people with sensitive skin may experience irritation from deodorants & antiperspirants that contain aluminum. If so, just look for the “Aluminum-Free” label.

Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs)

These water-soluble acids can work well for people with drier skin thanks to their ability to boost skin’s natural moisturizing function. They may also help reduce visible signs of sun damage, which can result in smoother & brighter-looking skin. Popular AHAs are mandelic acid, glycolic acid, lactic acid & citric acid.

Antioxidants

Antioxidants can help protect against free radicals & environmental factors. Vitamins A, C & E can help to protect your skin, reduce inflammation & brighten the appearance of dark spots.

Avocado Oil

Avocados are a favorite for a reason—beyond revolutionizing toast. Their oil is rich with vitamins & fatty acids, which nourish the skin & help lock in moisture. It also has antioxidants that may help reduce inflammation of damaged skin.
