T.R.U.E Active Complex is a combination of three traditional Chinese herbs (Astragalus membranaceous root extract, Bupleurum falcatum root extract, and Atractylodes macrocephala root extract) in glycerin.
Overall, the T.R.U.E Active Complex targets three signs of aging: dehydration, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. It reinforces the barrier function by regulating the expression of the Yin-Yang-1 protein. The complex works by restoring the epidermis integrity, stimulating collagen synthesis, and counteracting melanogenesis and oxidative stress from UV rays and pollution. As such, the active improves uniformity and radiance and is often used in anti-aging and skin-brightening products.
