Antarcticine (Glacial Glycoprotein Extract)
Antarcticine, sourced from Antarctica, is a glycoprotein* that has demonstrated many unique benefits when used in skincare formulas. With superb protection against dryness, Antarcticine helps hydrate skin and provides it with a noticeably smoother appearance while shielding skin from the damaging effects of free-radicals. It further helps to protect skin from extremely cold temperatures, facilitating skin's retention of natural water reserves. The organic substance thrives in the most extreme environmental conditions as a result of the cryoprotective (protection against freezing) properties of the molecule.
*A glycoprotein is a macromolecule composed of a protein and a carbohydrate (an oligosaccharide).
This signature Kiehl’s ingredient is a botanical lipid derived from olives and shares a similar molecular structure with skin’s own natural oils. It has emollient characteristics that allow it to coat the skin’s surface. Within the formula, Squalane is used as a solubilizing ingredient to break up makeup and impurities on skin. It also helps to soften and hydrate skin.
After cleansing and toning - day and night, apply Ultra Facial Cream to combat moisture depletion.
