- Bamboo Powder - Derived from the stem of the bamboo, it is rich in silica and acts as a surface exfoliant to polish skin, eliminate surface debris, and help alleviate clogged pores.
- Rice Bran Extract - Derived from the seed of the plant found in the West Indies, it is rich in vitamin E, squalene, polyphenols, phytosterols and oleic, linoleic and linolenic fatty acids, which synergistically help reinforce the stratum corneum restoring skin suppleness and firmness.
- Papain - Derived from the Papaya fruit, this proteolytic enzyme works to dissolve cross-linked collagen cells, accelerating skin turnover to speed healing and any uneven pigmentation.
- Salicylic Acid - Derived from the bark of the willow tree, it is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that acts as a keratolytic, helping to encourage the shedding of cells in the stratum corneum layer to unclog pores, encourage new cell growth and allow for other skin care ingredients to penetrate more effectively.

It also contains the glycoside, arbutin, which acts as an anti-inflammatory, helping to inhibit tyrosinase (enzyme responsible for melanin) reducing hyperpigmentaion.
- Licorice Root Extract - Derived from the Licorice plant, native to Europe, it has anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties, contains the glycoside, glycyrrhizin, to inhibit melanin production in human melanocytes by reducing tyrosinase (enzyme) activity.

- Tea Tree Oil - Derived from the leaves of the Australian melaleuca tree, it contains terpenoids, which have anti-bacterial properties.
