What are Active Ingredients in the Nicole Contos Skincare Line?

Actives are the star ingredients. In a nutshell, any active in my signature skincare line will do what it says. It’s the particular chemical/s or molecule/s that effectively target/s your skincare concern. 

How Do I Know an Active Ingredient Will Be Effective?

It’s simple. A topical active must be backed by research that’s proven it will change the skin in some way. 

Why Do I Need NC Actives in My Skincare Regime?

Think of active ingredients as the powerhouses that drive results. What’s more, many of my formulations contain multiple actives for true synergy for the skin. Here are some of the actives in the NC Line:

Firming: Retinol, Peptides, Marine Algae Extracts

Hydrating: Hyaluronic Acid, Lipochroman, Vitamin E

Brightening: Vitamin C, Lilac Stem Cells, Lipochroman
