active ingredients / what it does
antarcticine (glacial glycoprotein extract)
antarcticine, sourced from antarctica, is a glycoprotein* that has demonstrated many unique benefits when used in skincare formulas. with superb protection against dryness, antarcticine helps hydrate skin and provides it with a noticeably smoother appearance while shielding skin from the damaging effects of free-radicals. it further helps to protect skin from extremely cold temperatures, facilitating skin’s retention of natural water reserves. the organic substance thrives in the most extreme environmental conditions as a result of the cryoprotective (protection against freezing) properties of the molecule.
*a glycoprotein is a macromolecule composed of a protein and a carbohydrate (an oligosaccharide).
imperata cylindrica (desert plant extract)
the imperata cylindrica plant thrives in dry, excessively saline environments and is native to many of earth’s deserts, but is especially prolific in the australian outback. imperata cylindrica’s roots contain high concentrations of potassium which provides an immediate and lasting hydrating effect. in our formulation, imperata cylindrica helps skin to store and retain moisture efficiently – even in the driest weather conditions. it is believed that indigenous australians of centuries past used the desert plant as a substitute for salt, due to its high saline content.
squalane (perhydrosqualene or perhydrosqualene vegetal)
a signature kiehl’s ingredient, squalane is a botanical lipid that is similar in molecular structure to natural skin lipids. it has an exceptional affinity to skin, and because it’s easily absorbed, squalane helps restore skin’s natural moisture balance to keep it extra soft and supple.
