Almond Oil is extracted from the raw fruits of the almond tree and is rich in unsaturated fatty acids, vitamin E, proteins and zinc.
Alpha-Bisabolol is an active ingredient that is obtained from the chamomile. It has skin-soothing, anti-inflammatory properties.
Amino acids are obtained from sugar cane plants. They support the elastin and collagen synthesis and thus skin firmness and elasticity.
Obtained from the seeds of the fruit this oil is especially suited for sensitive and dry skin. It is rich in vitamin E and thus neutralizes free radicals.

Vitamin-C derivative with anti-oxidative properties
Butcher’s Broom Extract has circulation and lymph flow enhancing properties
Due to its circulation enhancing effects caffeine improves the skin cells‘ oxygen uptake. This in turn improves the uptake of other active ingredients.
Dipeptide naturally occuring in the body. Its concentration decreases over the years. It can slow down the tissue glycation process. Glycation occurs when the skin’s structure proteins (i.e. collagen, elastin) degrade.
Ceramides are naturally occurring lipids located in the upper layers of the epidermis. In order to support very dry, demanding skin it is necessary to additionally supply the skin with these plant derived lipids to strengthen the skin barrier and to prevent transepidermal waterloss.
naturally occurring neutral oil
The Centella Asiatica extract has antioxidative, anti-inflammatory and restorative properties.
Coenzyme Q10 is obtained from plant cultures through microbial fermentation. It is naturally contained in all our cells and our body normally produces it sufficiently. However the production slows down over the years. Q10 plays a key role in the energy metabolism and in the respiratory chain. It activates cell energy and promotes repair mechanisms inside the skin. At the same time coenzyme Q10 is a potent anti-oxidant and protects the skin cells against free radicals.
Plant-derived glycerin moisturises and protects the skin.
Hyaluronic Acid is a predominant constituent of the skin’s extracellular matrix. It can be obtained from wheat through microbial fermentation and has the ability to bind a multiple of its own molecular weight in water.
Jojoba oil is obtained by pressing the nuts from the jojoba bush from the Mexican desert. It quickly penetrates the skin and has skin moisturising skin-smoothing properties.

Sheabutter is a wax obtained from the fruits of the African Vitellaria tree. It is rich in linoleic acid and vitamin 3 as well as Omega 3 fatty acids.
Conventional creams contain emulsifiers to mix and stabilize the water-soluble and fat-soluble ingredients. Emulsifiers however tend to make our skin porous, allowing toxins/pollutants in while the skin loses moisture. The CAVANCE skin care line however is emulsifier-free as it contains the Structure Response Matrix. This structure-bearing matrix is made of skin-identical ingredients and naturally integrates itself into the upper skin layers thus supporting the barrier function.
