Carbopol Ultrez 10 Polymer stabilizes the emulsion while providing a light, fresh texture during application. The combination of Schercemo NGDO and 318 esters easily spreads across the skin, for an equally light afterfeel. This weightless quality enhances the wearability so the user can enjoy its antioxidant and conditioning properties all day long, even under makeup. Botanical ingredients derived from tomatoes, hibiscus flowers and green tea are included to provide skin benefits.
