Phytofuse Renew®
INCI: Selaginella Lepidophylla Extract
Provide the protective and reparative benefits associated with the secondary metabolites produced by the ‘desert rose’ during stress. This natural complex carbohydrate system provides emollient benefits and forms a lubricious film, binding water and activating fibroblasts, to restore extracellular proteins.

AC Dermal Respiratory Factor Advanced PF
INCI: Aqua & Saccharomyces Lysate Extract
A global metabolic stimulant. Live yeast cell derivatives (LYCD) are produced by exposing yeast cells to a UV radiation. These synergistically active compounds help to stimulate cellular metabolism, promoting an increase in cellular energy and collagen synthesis, whilst minimising skin irritation.

Leucidal® SF Max
INCI: Lactobacillus Ferment
Derived from Lactobacillus acidophilus, a probiotic bacterium traditionally used to ferment milk into yogurt. Created by the fermentation of Lactobacillus in a defined growth medium, this specific manufacturing process yields a unique peptide with broad spectrum, antimicrobial and conditioning properties. This ferment filtrate is standardized for 5 - 10% bacteriocin content.

Organic Rice Solution
INCI: Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract & Aqua
An aqueous based rice extract which provides similar humectant, moisturizing and hydrating properties as traditional glycerin. USDA Organic Compliant.

A novel study demonstrates the use of this naturally derived extract as preventing the transfer of pathogenic microbes from one surface to another. This film-former can act as a physical barrier for microbial resistance caused by direct and indirect contamination.

Regular hand washing and use of sanitizing products can lead to dry, irritated and damaged skin. Promote skin barrier repair and soothe irritation with Saccharomyces Lysate Extract.

Most sanitizing products are based on alcohol. Although very effective alcohol can also be irritating. Boost purifying formulas with a natural antimicrobial which is gentle on the skin and skin microbiota, provides anti-inflammatory potential and key moisturizing benefits.

Demand for hand sanitizers and gels has put pressure on the global glycerin supply chain. Compliment natural and more gentle sanitizing formulas with the Organic Rice Solution alternative from Arbor Organic Technologies.
