adenosine phosphate

A skin-soothing and restoring ingredient that’s structurally similar to adenosine triphosphate. It’s sometimes referred to as adenosine monophosphate, or AMP. Applied to skin, AMP helps create pathways within skin’s surface that assist with energy transport. This can visibly revitalize tired-looking, stressed skin.
