Advanced Peptide formula provides exceptional skin smoothing & firming results
Palmitoyl Tripeptide-3: Improves micro circulation, increasing the oxygen supply to tissues, strengthens and protects the integrity of elastin and collagen in the skin by inhibiting elastase and collagenase activity. Its benefits include reduction of puffiness and dark circles around the eyes and a softening of fine lines and wrinkles.
Hexapeptide-11: It is well documented that extracts from yeast fermentation have demonstrated wound healing properties, increased cellular oxygen consumption, improve collagen synthesis, and increase blood vessel development. Considered the “firming” peptide, Hexapeptide-11: has been shown to “upregulate” genes responsible for collagen and elastin production. This peptide is thought to play a role in improving skin elasticity, skin lipid integrity and development.
Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4: Also known as Matrixyl® has been proven to stimulate the development of new collagen, fibernectin, elastin and GAGs in the dermal layer of the skin. It creates a healing response in the skin. It is a combination of five amino acid peptides in one chain.
This highly moisturizing ingredient aids in tissue repair and stimulates cellular proliferation. Panthenol also helps the skin promote wound healing and is anti-inflammatory. Its ability to attract water from the environment provides added hydration and suppleness to the skin.
Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid)
This ingredient occurs naturally in the dermis layer. Its water absorbing abilities help the epidermis achieve much needed suppleness and moisture. Known for its wonderful water binding ability, this acid holds water tightly and when applied to the skin, forms a film similar to the way it holds water in the intercellular matrix of the dermal connective tissue. It is also useful as a carrier for other extracts and active ingredients.
Lentinula Edodes (Shitake Mushroom Extract)
A skin strengthener obtained from plants, this ingredient is beneficial for firming the skin, increasing the elasticity and tone of mature skin. Rich in oligosaccharides and uronic acids from Shitake, this active ingredient enables the skin to combat the degradation of collagen and elastin fibers.
Ginseng Root Extract (Panax Ginseng) –
This herbal root has many therapeutic benefits. It has been used for centuries to treat boils, sores, swelling and bruising. It is helpful in diminishing wrinkles and reduces the symptoms of dry skin conditions. Medicinal properties are suggested to help improve skin rejuvenation, oxygenation and stimulation. The root’s active component called “ginsenosides” is said to be responsible for revitalizing the epidermal cells.
Beneficial for its ability to water-bind and retain moisture in the corneum layer, it creates a film that keep the water “locked in” reducing dehydration. A humectant and an anti-irritant, this stable protein is known to be nonallergic to all skin types.
This refined ingredient is very effective in helping eliminate dryness, enhance flexibility and improve texture of the skin. It influences the formation of topo-collagen fibers when used with soluble collagen. It helps improve the overall appearance, softness and suppleness of the skin.
Usage: After cleansing and toning, apply serum to entire face and neck areas. Allow serum to dry.
