OUR ACTIVE INGREDIENTS

Prickly pear plant

Radiance, Renewed


I really believe in the renewing power of skin’s complexion, and I sourced the most potent actives to activate it. As a Pharm.D doctor, I screened each active, tested it and added it at the maximum concentration recommended and tested by our labs for optimal skin radiance. No ingredient was added solely for marketing purposes. Out of the 60+ Bonjout Beauty ingredients, here is a selection of the especially potent ones.
