Dawnergy is a nonapeptide designed to wake up the cells of the skin by increasing JARID1a and clock gene levels, enhancing early morning functions of the skin and providing an energizing effect on skin cells. Avalure Flex-6CC is a multifunctional polymer ingredient with enhanced film forming properties and pigment dispersion capabilities. It provides rub-off resistant coverage and a soft, powdery feel.
