Proprietary blend of resveratrol and superoxide dismutase (SOD) for a powerful antioxidant boost. Sodium Salicylate fights inflammation, which in turn provides for the use of a therapeutic amount of retinol without causing irritation, making it safe for sensitive skin. Ceramide NP protects the top layer of the skin, prevents moisture loss, keeps skin soft and supple. Coenzyme Q is a powerful antioxidant.
