The "Dragon's Blood" is the name given to the red-colored sap extracted from the trees nicknamed “Dragonniers". These fascinating trees with an unusual appearance (similar to a giant umbrella) have an exceptional longevity and many properties.
Dragon's Blood extract is mainly extracted from the Croton Lechleri species, a medium-sized tree found in Peru, Colombia, Bolivia, and Ecuador, which can grow up to 1000 meters above sea level. In Peru, it has been dubbed "liquid band aid" because it is traditionally applied on sores to stop bleeding or to soothe insect bites, itching, chapped skin, venous ulcers, and burns.
Also known as one of nature's finest botanicals, Dragon's blood is a red-sap rich in "taspine" that aids in reducing the appearance of redness and irritation, revealing a firmer skin look.

Ceramides are used in skincare to moisturize, increase hydration, and improve barrier function.

Papain in papaya are attributed to soothing skin irritations and exfoliating dead skin cells. Papaya contains arginine, which is an amino acid that smooths skin. This oil-soluble enzyme may also be used for gentle exfoliation and even out skin tone. Papaya enzymes gently exfoliate the skin leaving it smooth, soft, clean, and luminous.
Carrot oil and resin extract is one of the most rejuvenating and nutrient rich oils that can be used in skincare. It is rich in beta-carotene as well as vitamins B, C, D, and E.
