UV-endonuclease; an enzyme from an extract of ocean bacteria. It’s enclosed in a tiny package of fat (called a liposome) that supposedly helps deliver the enzyme deep into the skin. It’s an end product of the controlled lysis of various species of Micrococcus.

A 2010 study in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology by Moy and colleagues at UCLA found that using a cream with DNA repair enzymes for 48 weeks significantly reduced actinic keratoses (scaly precancerous growths) in 17 people with severely sun-damaged skin. (The product used in the study is not commercially available.)
