JUVINITY™ (Geranylgeranylisopropanol) protects skin cells from oxidative damage by promoting the production of ATP increasing the skin cell’s energy and vitality. Prolongs cell lifespan, and delays cell aging, by maintaining telomere length.
RETINYL PROPIONATE + RETINYL PALMITATE (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.
MATRIXYL® SYNTHE 6® (Hydroxypropyl Cyclodextrin + Palmitoyl Tripeptide-38) a powerful peptide that can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, Matrixyl™ Synthe 6® enhances the production of six skin-rebuilding essentials, including collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Synthe 6® also improves wrinkles by strengthening the dermal epidermal junction to literally smooth out skin. As the skin begins to improve, Matrixyl™ Synthe 6® activates skin to produce more of the cells that keep it looking young and healthy.
DERMAXYL® (Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-12+Ceramide NG+PEG-10 Phytosterol) Dermaxyl™ 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.
MALT SECRETS® (Hordeum Vulgare (Barley) Seed Extract) contains ferulic acid, a potent antioxidant, that absorbs the long UV wavelength to help brighten skin. This powerful ingredient also inhibits lipidic peroxidation, which stops free radicals from damaging skin cells and is anti-glycation, improving skin texture. Malt Secrets® is also 100% natural and has been approved by Ecocert Greenlife.
HYDROLYZED JOJOBA ESTERS increases skin hydration.
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.
