Pistacia Lentiscus Gum

Mastic tree resin extract – Switzerland

The extract made from the mastic tree resin is a natural alternative to retinol. Mastic is an aromatic resin that comes from a tree which exclusively grows on the Greek island of Chios. Djusie’s The Juice Moisturizing Power Fluid contains vectorized mastic, which means that the active ingredient is encapsulated. This is what makes the extract so effective. It has been proven by in vivo tests to increase skin density and elasticity, to give lifting effect, refine pore visibility, decrease sebum secretion and blemishes, and increase the skin’s moisture level. The extract has been found to support the retinoic acid that occurs naturally in the skin by limiting the activity of the enzyme that destroys it.
