자주 묻는 질문

Vitamin C (as Ascorbic acid)


Vitamin C is an essential water-soluble vitamin that supports a wide range of functions in the human body including energy metabolism, antioxidant activity, and protection against the oxidative effects of free radicals, and can replenish other antioxidants. Vitamin C an essential co-factor for the enzymes involved in cross-linking collagen, which gives collagen its strength and elasticity.*




Vitamin E (as D-Alpha tocopheryl acetate)


Vitamin E is the collective name for a group of lipid-based compounds that includes alpha, beta, gamma, and delta tocotrienols and tocopherols. It is an essential nutrient and is the most abundant antioxidant in the lipid fraction of the skin. Additionally, vitamin E in the skin is a photo-protective antioxidant to help defend the skin against damage caused by environmental aggressors.*




Biotin


Also called vitamin H, biotin is a water-soluble B vitamin that is an essential co-factor for various enzymes that are important for intermediary metabolite transformation in critical metabolic pathways that control gluconeogenesis (the metabolic pathway that results in the generation of glucose from certain non-carbohydrate substrates), fatty acid synthesis, and amino acid catabolism. Humans and other mammals cannot synthesize biotin and must get it from dietary sources or via synthesis from gut bacteria.*




Collagen Complex (Bovine and Salmon skin)


Collagen is the most abundant protein in animals. There are 28 different types of collagen in humans and it constitutes nearly 30% of total protein in the body. Collagen makes up 75% of the dry weight of skin, with collagen Types I and III making up the overwhelming majority. Joy ¯ome Collagen Complex is a hydrolyzed collagen from bovine and salmon skin; hydrolyzing provides increased absorption and bioavailability. Collagen is rich in the unique amino acid hydroxyproline and it is these hydroxy-proline containing peptides that help naturally activate the body’s collagen synthesis pathways.*




Fructo-oligosaccharides


Fructo-oligosaccharides is a prebiotic that occurs naturally in several plants such as asparagus, wheat, Jerusalem artichokes, and rye. It is composed of a mixture of oligosaccharides consisting of glucose linked to fructose that is indigestible by human digestive enzymes. This is the same prebiotic used in the Joy ¯ome facial serums.*




Wheat Seed Extract**


A lipid extract from the wheat seed that is rich in plant ceramides. Ceramides are a special class of waxy membrane lipids and are the most abundant lipid in the outer layers of the skin. They are integral to the barrier integrity of the skin and its moisture retaining capabilities. Aging is associated with skin drying and a corresponding depletion of ceramide content in the skin. Oral ceramide ingestion can help increase skin ceramide content.*




Lucuma Fruit Powder (Pouteria lucuma)


Known as the “Gold of the Incas,” or more commonly just as lucuma, it is a subtropical fruit native to the Andeas mountain region of South America and is a common dietary staple in its native region. Lucuma possesses high antioxidant capacity due to its high concentration of triterpenes, flavonoids, and carotenes.*




Pomegranate Fruit Extract (Punica granatum)


Pomegranate is a fruit bearing shrub native to the middle east and cultivated widely throughout the Mediterranean. The fruit is nutrient dense and rich in antioxidant phytonutrients, particularly anthocyanins.*




Asparagus Shoot (Asparagus officinales)


A small shrub plant with one main stalk and numerous feathery leaves, asparagus is most commonly harvested while the stalks are still small and tender. It is a rich source of antioxidant flavonoids and saponins that are responsible for its health benefits.*




Okra Pod (Abelmoschus esculentus)


A nutrient-rich vegetable that grows widely across tropical and subtropical regions. The seed pods are consumed and known for their viscous fiber content that gives it a slimy texture. It is naturally rich in various phytonutrients, including flavonoids, isoquercitrin, and quercetin.




Coffee Fruit Extract (Coffea arabica)


The fruit, called the coffee cherry, is often discarded as a byproduct of coffee production, but is a rich source of antioxidant phytonutrients like chlorogenic, protocatechuic, and gallic acids.*




Quercetin (Sophora japonica)


An antioxidant flavonol from Japanese sophora flower.*




Acerola Fruit Juice (Malpighi glabra)


A tropical shrub with bright red cherry-like fruits. Its fruit is abundant in antioxidants like vitamin C, anthocyanins, flavonoids, and phenolics.*




Camu-Camu Fruit Juice (Myrciaria dubia)


A tropical fruit native to the Amazon, rich in antioxidants due to its high content of vitamin C and polyphenols.*




Acai Palm Fruit (Euterpe oleracea mart)


A palm plant native to the Amazon that bears large drooping clusters of its dark blue fruits that are rich in anthocyanins and polyphenol antioxidants.*




Mangosteen Fruit (Garcinia mangostana)


A tropical fruit native to Southeast Asia with a deep purple skin, white flesh, and unique flavor. It is a rich source of uncommon phytonutrients known as xanthonoids.




Silicon Dioxide


Moisture controlling agent that improves flow of ingredients during packaging




Maltodextrin


Maltodextrin is used as a carrier or processing aid in specific ingredients.




Natural Flavors


Natural flavors are naturally occurring compounds that contribute to the unique flavor profiles found in foods. These various flavors are taken from essential oils, resins, essences or extracts.
