Bisabolol

Bisabolol, alpha bisabolol – Brazil

Bisabolol is very effective in soothing irritated and reddened skin and rashes. It acts as an antioxidant and inhibits melanin synthesis, the production of pigmentation-stimulating melanocytes, which prevents the formation of pigment spots and lightens those that have already formed.

The alpha-bisabolol used by Djusie is made from 100% candeia tree oil. It works in synergy with acai berry oil, especially in the treatment of pigment spots, by inhibiting melanin synthesis. The compound has been found to prevent the formation of pigment spots and to brighten skin tone more effectively and for a longer time than kojic acid and arbutin and does not cause skin sensitisation.

Butylene glycol

Butylene glycol – France

Butylene glycol is used in cosmetics as a solvent, humectant and skin-softening agent. The butylene glycol in Djusie’s products acts as a solvent for the green seaweed extract and is made from sugar cane.
