At Function of Beauty, we take healthy and sustainable personal care quite seriously. Ever wonder how our #beautynerds team gets it done? Here’s a deep dive into the natural extracts and other healthy ingredients that make our skin products so effective.

Skincare Ingredients at Function of Beauty

Whether you’re looking for anti-aging care, brighter skin, rejuvenation, or protection from the elements, natural and lab-formulated ingredients can help you reach these skin goals—goals that you might’ve thought were never possible:

Hydration

Hyaluronic acid of three different molecular weights helps to penetrate the different layers of your skin, assisting with skin hydration and elasticity, and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Blue-green algae from Klamath Lake in Oregon is also used as a source of antioxidants that are ultra-nourishing and deeply moisturizing. Together, these ingredients boost hydration and address the visible signs of dehydration, leaving your skin soft and supple.

Anti-Aging

Argireline helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the face, especially on your forehead and around your eyes. Tiger grass is used to promote youthful-looking skin. Together, these ingredients visibly reduce the appearance of lines and deep wrinkles for more youthful-looking skin.

Brighten

Tangerine extract helps smooth and clarify the outermost layer of your skin so that your natural glow can radiate from within. We also use vitamin C, an antioxidant, which naturally helps to brighten and illuminate your skin. Our vitamin C comes in a stable, water-soluble form that absorbs quickly into the skin. Together, these ingredients, boost your skin’s radiance while helping to minimize the appearance of sun damage.

Awaken

Magnesium aspartate, zinc gluconate, copper gluconate, and aloe vera extract that contain antioxidants, enzymes, and vitamin A provide you with soothing benefits, and they boost your skin’s skin vitality by increasing access to immediate oxygen, helping to stimulate circulation and keeping your skin fresh.

Calm and Soothe

We use neem liquid, which is effective in calming skin and helping to shield skin from external aggressors, as well as aloe extract, which contains antioxidants and enzymes to soothe damaged and sensitive skin.

Minimize Redness

Bisabolol is a versatile plant from Brazil. We use ingredients derived from it to help shield your skin from environmental stressors without causing irritation. We also use southern magnolia bark extract, which is specially designed to reduce external stress-induced skin redness from, for example, shaving. Together, these ingredients reduce redness and the appearance of irritation on your skin.

Minimize Pores

Artichoke extract reduces the appearance of noticeable pores and helps to improve skin elasticity. Pyridoxine cyclic phosphate, a vitamin B6 derivative, improves overall skin health and appearance. When added to your custom skin formulation, these ingredients visibly reduce pore size and pore darkening, smoothing the look of your skin’s texture.

Tighten

We use nannochloropsis oculata extract from algae to boost the appearance of firmer skin. Clinical studies have shown that this tightening is effective within four hours of use. The extract also has anti-aging effects and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Pullulan, another ingredient, gives the appearance of firmer and more youthful skin by quickly forming a sheer film that helps improve skin’s texture and appearance.

Reduce Shine

The natural arnica extract helps to regulate sebum (face oil) accumulation. Enantia chlorantha bark extract and oleanolic acid are compounds that reduce skin sebum production and the appearance of pore size, and they help to refine skin texture. Together, these ingredients help to reduce the signs of congestion and visible sebum production.

Anti-Pollution

Using all-natural cherimoya extract, we can help your skin achieve a sustainable homeostatic balance. Also, hydroxytyrosol, a compound found in olives and olive oil, can help mitigate environmental damage and slow the aging rate of your skin cells.

Together, these ingredients neutralize the aging effects of environmental and blue-light pollutants and fortify your skin’s barrier for future protection.

Even Tone

Kiwi extract has been shown to impede concentrated melanin accumulation, which is what causes dark spots. We use this extract and azelaic acid, a gentle acid that can help fade post-acne marks and other discolorations, to reduce the appearance of discolorations on the skin.

Reduce Breakouts

Vitamin B3 is a skin-restoring ingredient that helps rejuvenate blemish-prone skin. Combined with salicylic acid, it can help improve the appearance of acne scars. Salicylic acid can penetrate the linings of your pores and exfoliate the insides of them as well as the surface of your skin, which makes it especially effective at reducing breakouts. These ingredients help address the environmental causes of breakouts.

Smoothen

Yuzu extract, a multi-tasking ingredient, is a super moisturizer that keeps your skin youthful and supple. It also helps improve the appearance of roughness and irritation and refines your skin’s texture for a smoother, more even complexion.
