Anti-Aging Active Ingredients from Activist Skincare

Actives & Ingredients

the best active ingredients for skin care: anti-aging, acne and more

We make a conscious choice to select only the most effective ingredients for our skincare products.
For every ingredient that meets our standards, there are dozens that don't. We base our standards on research by independent third-party leaders in consumer safety including the Environmental Working Group and the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics.

We are proudly cruelty-free with no animal testing, and our ingredients are 100% vegan.
