Chicory root extract
Chicory root extract —
Chicory extract is rich in oligofructosans which helps restore the function of Vitamin D receptors and allows the skin to better synthesize Vitamin D even in the presence of sunscreen. Sunscreen protects skin by diminishing exposure to UVB/UVA rays, but it does not allow the body to produce the necessary amount of Vitamin D, which can create a deficiency. Applying chicory extract to skin promotes Vitamin D synthesis, similar to ingesting Vitamin D orally.
