Ingredient Spotlight: Fulvic Acid Benefits

Call us crazy, but we believe that the 7000-year-old peat from the Estonian forest holds the key to having bright, youthful skin. Peat is a naturally occurring resource that is extraordinarily rich in complex humic compounds, high in minerals and has one of the world's highest concentrations of antioxidants. It contains Fulvic Acid, an active component that has been the focus of many scientific investigations.

Due to its exceptional and versatile repertoire, fulvic acid is a star ingredient to look for in skincare products. However, before you get too excited thinking this may be another exfoliating acid, you should know it is neither an AHA nor a BHA. In fact, it's not even an acid.

However, it is skin-friendly, so if you consider incorporating skincare products with this ingredient into your skincare regimen, you don't need to worry about the risks. It is an excellent antioxidant with skin-brightening properties to tackle dull and pigmented skin. Furthermore, it also helps in fighting against free radicals to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin.
