Griffonia, a shrub native to Africa, has developed a unique defence mechanism to protect itself from sun exposure. Extracts of griffonia seeds contain 5-hydroxytryptophan a neurotransmitter that has been shown to protect human melanocytes from UV-induced apoptosis. Additionally, extracting high molecular weight carbohydrates creates a stable yet supple film on the skin that immediately tightens. Standardised for 1% 5-hydroxytryptophan content.
