This is from Sana’s soy line, and they don’t mess around. There are four sources of soy in this product: fermented soymilk, soybean extract, soy protein, and soy sterols. Each plays a different function, but they’re all great for your skin: as demonstrated inthis aggregationof current research, soy is a powerful antioxidant and may induce collagen production, fade hyperpigmentation, and thicken the epidermis.
Squalane is a skin-identical oil that’s one of my favorite emollient ingredients. Ceramides constitute about 50% of your stratum corneum’s fatty intracellular matrix and are absolutely crucial to skin health. Retinyl palmitate is a combination of retinol and palmitic acid; it has anti-oxidant properties and can regulate cell turnover. Rutin is a bioflavinoid that has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
What it’s like in action
It comes out of the tube as an extremely rich, unscented cream. It’s a small tube – only 25g – but you only need a tiny amount to cover your whole eye area.
It has a wonderful texture – it’s almost a little gel-like, but so rich, thick, and creamy. It’s not sticky in the slightest. It doesn’t absorb quickly, but that’s to be expected with such an occlusive cream (and one that’s meant to be used as your very final step at night).
