What does it do?
5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is a naturally occurring amino acid and the chemical precursor to serotonin (otherwise known as the 'feel-good' hormone). In cosmetics, it's used for its long-term anti-ageing benefits, helping to minimise the appearance of fine lines and improve skin tone.
Where does it originate from?
5-HTP is extracted from the seeds of the Griffonia plant, a native African shrub.
When should I use it?
This ingredient can be used day and night.
What skin type is it best suited to?
5-HTP is best suited to mature skin types due to their anti-ageing benefits.
What does it work well with?
Incorporating 5-HTP into your evening routine can complement the effects of Retinol, providing additional anti-ageing benefits.
