Owel Multi-Peptide Eye Cream
Feels good. Looks good. Does good.
FOR: Fatigued or puffy under-eyes pH: 5.0-6.0
Eye creams often bear the brunt of our most unrealistic expectations in a tiny jar. They can’t stop the racing thoughts, make the noisy upstairs neighbors cut it out, or stop your partner from stealing the sheets in the middle of the night — but this eye cream can at least make it look like you’ve had a full night’s rest in the morning. Its balanced combination of buttery plant-based emollients and lightweight botanical seed oils deliver nourishing moisture to your delicate under-eye area. This formula is also loaded up with amino acid complexes, antioxidants, and powerful peptides which have been found to help smooth fine lines and wrinkles, boost collagen and elastin production, and prevent the degradation of existing collagen over time — all of which means you’ll probably want to apply it at night too. Not bad for a tiny jar.
Hydrates the under-eye area with its silky, soothing texture. (Feels good)
Floods fine lines and crepey skin with nourishing plant emollients for a refreshed, wide-awake appearance. (Looks good)
Sophisticated peptides and botanical extracts help support elasticity and firmness, wrinkle-smoothing, barrier strengthening, and moisture retention to boost the resilience of delicate skin around your eyes. (Does good)
How to use
Smear a tiny bit on your under-eye area with the pad of your ring finger (it’s the gentlest one), dabbing lightly until absorbed. Apply morning and night.
Warning: External use only. Avoid direct contact with eyes.

Rethinking Skincare As Skin Situations
Skin types describe a baseline of skin’s behavior. But sometimes skin decides to misbehave, and that’s when we have a situation. Situational Skincare is taking a solution-oriented approach to skincare based on what it needs day-to-day.
And their benefits
Mango Seed Butter
A fatty acid-rich plant-based emollient and a key vehicle for buttery, skin-soothing hydration in our formula.
Lupinus Albus (White Lupine) Seed Oil
A non-fragrant plant oil containing a powerful trio of omegas 3, 6, and 9. These unsaturated fatty acids help keep skin well-moisturized, strengthened, and calm.
Prunus Domestica Seed Oil
A silky non-fragrant plant oil whose molecular structure allows it to penetrate skin easily with antioxidants and unsaturated fatty acids. Highly nourishing and moisturizing.
Jojoba Seed Oil
A non-fragrant, skin-identical, monounsaturated oil that closely mimics the natural texture of sebum, making it very skin-friendly. It helps to enhance skin’s restorative properties and is brilliant for all skin situations.
Also known as Argireline and acetyl hexapeptide-3, this neurotransmitter-inhibiting peptide can target expression wrinkles (the kinds created by facial movement) similar to the way Botox does. In-vivo tests have shown that this peptide can work to significantly decrease wrinkle depth and width while increasing moisturization of the area, when used in adequate concentration.
4% Dipeptide Diaminobutyroyl Benzylamide Diacetate (Syn-Ake)
This synthetic tripeptide’s small molecular weight allows it to penetrate skin easily, getting the good stuff where it’s needed. The good stuff in question: a triple amino acid complex that can target wrinkles caused by facial movement (again, similar to Botox). During in vivo studies, 4% Syn®-Ake used for 28 days resulted in 21% smoother and 15-20% less wrinkled skin with max values up to 52%. The smoothing and wrinkle reduction effect was measurably evident on the majority of study participants.
2% Copper Lysinate/Prolinate (Neodermyl®)
An essential amino acid-mineral complex shown to help boost the skin’s own collagen and elastin production. Neodermyl® is a pure source of bio-energy, allowing it to naturally diffuse into skin to help re-energize senescent fibroblasts and trigger production of collagen and elastin.
Poria Cocos Extract
This mushroom-derived extract has antioxidant and skin-soothing powers.
Nephelium Lappaceum Peel Extract
This extract is derived from the outer layers of the rambutan fruit, a tree native to Southeast Asia. Different parts of the fruit have different properties, the outer peel being rich in antioxidants and polyphenol compounds, which help protect and strengthen the skin barrier from oxidative stress.
3% Hedychium Coronarium Root Extract
This extract from Hawaiian white ginger (or butterfly ginger) acts as a multiprotector for skin exposed to blue light, UV, and environmental pollution.
2% Ziziphus Spina-Christi Leaf
The leaves from Christ’s thorn plant are used to create an extract (professionally known as GlowAGE™), which has been clinically shown to help improve wrinkle depth and volume, smooth the eye area, and reduce collagen fragmentation in this concentration.
1% Argania Spinosa Callus Culture Extract
This plant stem cell derivative (also known as PhytoCellTec™) comes from the argan tree and and has been shown to have capabilities for dermal stem cell protection, improving skin firmness and tightness, and anti-wrinkle effects on fine lines, therefore achieving deep skin rejuvenation.
1% Aesculus Hippocastanum (Horse Chestnut) Seed Extract
This extract contains saponins, which can help reduce swelling and puffiness with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Coffea Arabica Seed Oil
A non-fragrant plant oil that helps skin bolster its moisture retention.
This water-binding plant sugar acts as a humectant, drawing hydration to skin to support moisture retention.
