Vita-Peptide C-Quence Serum 1 is the introductory serum in the premium Environ Vitamin STEP-UP SYSTEM™ and contains the lowest concentration of vitamins A and C in the Youth EssentiA range. The technologically advanced serums in this Vitamin STEP-UP SYSTEM™ range contain a powerful combination of ingredients that work in synergy to assist in: combating the visible signs of aging; creating the appearance of even, smoother and healthier-looking skin.
RETINYL PROPIONATE (Vitamin A) Vitamin A normalizes the skin cell function, including regulating oil production in the skin cell to help hydrate, increasing skin cell turn over, strengthening the stratum spinosum (the structural layer of the skin) and compacting the stratum cornium (the outermost layer of the skin), which improves the skin’s ability to retain moisture and block out damaging free radicals. Vitamin A is also a free radical scavenger, an ingredient that is especially active in protecting skin cells from these damaging molecules.
ASCORBYL TETRAISOPALMITATE (Vitamin C) a powerful antioxidant that neutralizes free radials to protect the skin. Aides in the production of youthful collagen by strengthening amino acid chains that keep collagen strong. Influences melanin production resulting in more even distribution and less pigment formation.
TOCOPHERYL ACETATE (Vitamin E) Improves the skin’s natural moisturizIng factors, and nourishes the body skin, making the skin look plumper and firmer. Helps to quench free radicals, enhancing the effects of the skin’s natural sun protectors.
MATRIXYL® 3000 (Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7) application of Matrixyl® 3000 replenishes the natural peptide that signals your body to produce collagen and elastin. Improved production of collagen and elastin leads to wrinkle reduction, increased firmness of the skin, and improved moisture retention.
DERMAXYL® (Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-12+Ceramide NG+PEG-10 Phytosterol) is an anti-aging, wrinkle smoothing and cutaneous barrier repair ingredient. By stimulating cell communication, which slows down as cells age, repair cells can address age related skin damage. The result is enhanced firmness, better moisture retention, and visible easing of deep wrinkles.
GREEN TEA EXTRACT (Epigallocatechin Gallate) is rich in polyphenols, including catechins. The most abundant and effective catechin in green tea is EGCG, which possess potent antioxidant and skin-soothing, anti-inflammatory properties.
ROSEMARY (Rosmarinus Ofcinalis) LEAF EXTRACT a powerful antioxidant that protects against free radical damage and the effects of environmental stresses on the skin. It also has anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and skin toning properties
LYCOPENE a powerful antioxidant, predominantly found in bright red foods, including watermelon, tomatoes, and is involved in the light-protecting system in plants. Lycopene’s antioxidant properties help protect our skin from UV damage and photo-aging.
