What is carnitine?

Carnitine is an amino acid that occurs naturally in the body and is used for energy production, restoration and cleansing. When applied topically, it performs the same functions, thus boosting the condition of the skin. Carnitine strengthens the skin and increases the rate of cell regeneration to reveal a brighter and smoother complexion.

Benefits of carnitine

1. Reduces visible signs of ageing

As the rate of skin cell renewal slows down with age, this may cause skin to appear dull or roughly textured. Carnitine can help boost skin metabolism to improve elasticity and minimise the appearance of fine lines.

2. Strengthens skin barrier

Carnitine helps to improve skin’s strength, defend against harmful environmental aggressors and prevent trans-epidermal water loss.

Is carnitine suitable for my skin type?

Carnitine is suitable for all skin types, especially dry and mature skin, as it helps to expedite skin cell renewal, moisturise skin and enhance the skin barrier function.

Can carnitine be used with other products?

Carnitine can be safely incorporated into your current skincare routine. It can improve skin’s moisture balance when used with hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and glycerin.

How often should I use Carnitine?

Carnitine can be used up to twice per day.
