Pelargonium Graveolens Extract is a sweet-scented, rare geranium. It boosts skin elasticity and regulates sebum production. It is a very good antioxidant for the skin. It reduces inflammation by releasing excess water into skin tissue. 
The extract is superior to the oil as it removes the possibility of skin irritation due to the fragrance.
A form of Vitamin E that comes from plant seeds.
It is a skin-softening antioxidant that makes damaged skin (scars, sun-damaged) pliable. Once the skin is pliable, other treating ingredients can work their magic.
Royal Jelly Extract
Royal Jelly Extract is a bee product.
Royal Jelly is the gelatinous substance bees make to feed the queen bee. Royal Jelly is an anti-inflammatory anti-oxidant filled with skin-friendly nutrients. It smooths fine lines and wrinkles and enables skin repair. 
And bonus: Royal Jelly can promote collagen production. 
Verbascum Thapsus is also known as the Mullen plant.
In skincare, it provides a plant-based, skin-protecting anti-oxidant.
With 50% Hyaluronic Acid, it plumps my skin and makes it smooth, dewy, vibrant, and keeps it that way all day. My skin just drinks it in!
It is ideal under makeup as it does not leave my skin sticky or tacky. It will not pill under sunscreen.
Unlike some HAs, the surface of my skin does not feel dry after a few hours. HA draws in so much moisture from the air that sometimes skin is left parched. This formula has several hydrating ingredients to counteract that problem.
