4-terpineol: highly purified active fraction of Australia Tea Tree oil, delivers broad-spectrum inhibition of hostile skin flora without irritation or allergens associated with pure tea tree oil Acidophilus/Grape Ferment: mild AHA complex from grapes smoothes rough, aging skin

Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP): this fuel molecule energizes cellular activity, shortening the cell's response time for self-repair, protein production and natural antioxidant protection

AHA: Alpha-Hydroxy Acid, fruit-derived acid that has been proven to reduce wrinkles, acne scarring, hyper pigmentation and improve many other skin conditions. It reacts with the upper layer of the epidermis, weakening the binding properties of the lipids that hold the dead skin cells together.
