Vitamins are not produced by the human body.

Thus, for its requirements the body depends on an external dietary source or on topical application. Vitamin C is considered to be one of the cornerstones of skin cell activity, but when absorbed from food sources, the body utilizes it to maintain vital organs and only a trace amount of the vitamin reaches the skin. Application of cosmetic creams is an effective way to  

enrich skin with Vitamin C.








The importance of Vitamin C as it acts upon the layers of skin include:

  • Breaking down of melanin spots which are caused by sun exposure or hormonal changes, resulting in improving the skin tone.

  • Stimulating independent collagen production in the skin - maintaining flexibility of elastic fibers in the support network and preventing skin laxity.

  • Increase of moisture levels In conjunction with the Hyaluronic Acid found in the skin.

  • Vitamin C neutralizes the action of free radicals which destroy healthy cells, the cause of early skin aging.

  • Counterbalances radioactive processes, thus preventing skin discoloration.

Derivatives of Vitamin C

ESTER C is composed of Vitamin C derivatives infused in a single cosmetic product. The Ester C compound ensures increased absorption,

rendering it four times more effective than other forms.

Various studies conducted on ESTER C conclude that it:

  • Penetrates and strengthens the cell walls (membranes), providing efficient activity against free radicals; the cause of the damage.

  • ESTER C (also known as Ascorbyl-Palmitate) is rapidly absorbed without any skin reactions.

  • ESTER C is stable and can be used for extended periods without oxidization.

  • ESTER C encourages production of fibroblasts in the skin and reduces wrinkles caused by dryness or radiation.

  • Continuous use of vitamin C cream significantly reduces loss of elasticity and thinning of the skin.

ESTER C peeling line allows for a large variety of peeling treatments to treat a wide variety of problems. The line is suitable for sensitive skin, skin that suffers from an imbalance of oil secretion, increased suffering of dry skin and all types of pigmentation. Advanced anti-aging treatments that leaves the customer with young and radiant, refreshed and smoother skin in a short period.










Mandelic Acid

Mandelic Acid, produced from apricot fruit pips, stimulates skin regeneration in the lower skin layers without causing peeling of the top layer of skin. Mandelic Acid improves skin metabolism and profoundly improves the skin's natural processes, resulting in a glowing look. It is suitable for use on dark and sensitive skin, without any side effects. 

  • Mandelic Acid does not irritate the skin and produces hyperemia. The advantage of the acid is that it is suitable for use on dark skin and sensitive skin and does not cause side effects because of the pKa measured at 3.41 (lower than glycolic acid).

  • Non-Photo Toxicity - Mandelic acid does not increase the skin's sensitivity to radiation and therefore does not create hyperpigmentation.

  • Antibacterial properties - Mandelic acid is effective in the treatment of acne (especially whenncombined with Azelaic acid) due to its excellent antiseptic properties it prevents inflammation, infections and keratoly

Rice Silk

Rice silk is a natural powder derived from rice fiber and ground into tiny flakes. The powder retains the vitamins and nutrients found in natural rice. On contact with water on the skin, it produces gentle exfoliation, clarifies and adds moisture to the skin. The rice, due to its high starch content of rice bran, is nourishing and firming, exhibits remarkable effects and maintains moisture on dry and delicate skin. Rich in protein, it smooths the skin, forming the protective layer necessary for proper skin care.



Oatmeal nourishes the skin and gives a fresh new look. The active enzymes in oats encourages the removal of dead cells, stimulates gentle peeling, is nonabrasive,and is refreshing to facial skin. Oatmeal is rich in minerals, vitamins, folic acid, calcium, zinc, iron, potassium, essential amino acids and soluble fiber. Beyond nutritional and medicinal properties, oatmeal has cosmetic benefits such as a high concentration of salicylic acid which makes it a wonderful natural material to clean the skin and removing dead cells without concern for photo - sensitivity (exposure to sunlight).

Salicylic Acid

Salicylic Acid breaks down keratin – the protein found on the “hard” outer layers of the skin, and exfoliates dead skin cells on the skins surface. Salicylic Acid produces a lipophilic effect allowing the penetration of nutrients to the deep skin layers. Salicylic Acid (beta-hydroxyl acid - BHA) is an organic acid exhibiting a keratolytic effect, considered to be one of the most important plant hormones. Salicylic Acid accelerates skin cell regeneration, healing of warts, psoriasis, dandruff, seborrhea, and removal of hard and rough skin.


Pumpkin contains three essential natural components: acids, antioxidants (particularly strong) and enzymes. Pumpkin contains Malo-lactic acid, Glycolic and Salicylic acid. Pumpkin exhibits antibacterial activity, stimulating the skin renewal process of collagen and elastin fibers. This unique combination of acids makes pumpkin an ideal anti-aging treatment for skin exhibiting acne. Pumpkin contains vitamin C and a high concentration of Vitamin A (cell-carotene) a powerful antioxidant assisting in the healthy growth processes of the dermis and epidermis. The enzymes contained in Pumpkin break down proteins into their basic building blocks of aminoacids, which clean and balance, thus assisting the skin renewal process. The enzymes break down keratin, shedding the harmful dead cells without affecting the living cells in the lower skin layers.

Gylicolic Acid

Glycolic acid, originating from sugar cane, is an alpha hydroxy acid rich in ingredients which accelerate the peeling of the corneal (outer) layer of the skin. A micro size molecule of Glycolic Acid has the ability to penetrate the deeper layers of skin, diminishing the “glue” between the cells, permitting rapid peeling. Glycolic acid removes dead skin cells from the corneal layer, renews and improves the appearance and texture of the skin, while slowing skin aging and formation of pigmentation spots.



The Lightening Complex combines five innovative components acting directly on the enzyme tyrosinase which is responsible for creating darkmmelanin melanocytes cells in the dermis layer. The complex components work in addition to the enzymes responsible for creating the blackbrown pigment (TRP-1 and TRP-2).

  • Melanostatine 5 - Peptide Biomimetic – blocks melanin synthesis and prevents inconsistencies in skin melanin levels that create uneven coloring. It acts on melanin formation chain induced activity of the natural hormone in the body (Melanotropin) that causes hyperactivity of melanocytes cells that cannot cope with even distribution of melanin in the skin so brown spots are formed. Peptide does not interfere with normal activity in the skin but goes into action as soon as over activity in the melanocytes occurs it counteracts the natural hormone production and thus prevents excess production.

  • Resveratrol –a type of phytoestrogen, which functions as a natural phenolic anti-bacterial and protects against attacks by pathogens (bacteria) in the skin. Resveratol, a powerful antioxidant abundant in red grapes and all kinds of berries, known to inhibit cell proliferation and prevent the development of cancer cells. Additionally the ingredient is known for its abilities to block the production of melanin in the skin, to reduce sensitivity caused by alpha-hydroxy acids and to improve dry skin that is scaly and wrinkled by improving the thickness, elasticity and flexibility of the skin.

  • SabiWhite™ – derived ingredient turmeric bulbs Highlights known features, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-UV protection. The extract prevents the formation of free radicals and inhibits the activity of the enzyme tyrosinase. Hentowhite – component derived from grains (resorcinol) causes a reduction in melanin production and can lighten existing skin discolorations without causing skin irritation. It acts with a synergetic effect to prevent the occurrence of skin discoloration and has a long lasting effect.

  • Lumiskin component of natural antioxidants extracted from the bark of the Boldo Tree that originates in Chile and is 30 times more effective than Kojic acid. Tyrosinase inhibits enzyme activity and reduces the production of melanin in the skin. Prevents radiation damage and stimulates the natural hormone that turns on the melanocytes cells
