The Science Behind the Product:
Skin Care Collection Day Cream formula contains retinyl palmitate (1.0%), a derivative of vitamin A. It binds with skin-cell receptors to trigger skin renewal and has been shown to reduce the signs of skin aging 
Oryza rice-bran ceramides (0.5%) generates a protective barrier that maintains skin hydration to further diminish wrinkling of the skin . Rice-bran ceramides prevent water loss and contribute to the skin’s protection against microbes and its protective barrier function.
Scientists published a three-week human study about the effectiveness of oryza rice-bran ceramides. It was reported that those study participants who applied the oryza rice-bran ceramide cream had better-hydrated skin .
Skin Care Collection Day Cream also contains shea butter which is a vitamin E-rich fat extract of an African plant .
