Turbocharging the Metabolism 

Also known as L-Carnitine 

DESCRIPTION: Carnitine is a naturally occurring compound found in the amino acids lysine and methionine. 

APPLICATION: Carnitine is essential for the human body and plays an important role in the body’s energy production. Due to its stimulating effect on the metabolism, it has become an increasingly popular ingredient in food supplements - it is considered a "fat burner" that helps to reduce excess body fat. 

EFFECT: Carnitine is used specifically in body care products as it benefits the mitochondrial function, supporting the fat burning process and the transformation of long-chain fatty acids into energy. It also increases the amount of fat that gets released from the adipocytes. As it is produced naturally in the body, it is very well tolerated.  When topically applied, L-carnitine can help improve the lipid content on the skin and reduce unwanted sheen, leaving skin to look and feel more beautiful.
