The Best And Latest Anti-Aging Ingredients
Acetyl Hexapeptide-3 (Argireline): an amino-peptide that reduces muscle contraction, minimizing the long-term formation of lines and wrinkles; decreases wrinkles and prevents new ones formed by facial expressions. More information on Argireline.
Hexapeptide-10 (Serilesine): Improves cell adhesion reducing the loss of skin firmness; stimulates the proliferation of fibroblasts, the collagen-producing skin cells.
Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-3 (Matrixyl): A small amino-peptide found to stimulate the synthesis of collagen, elastin, and glycosaminoglycans; as effective as retinol against wrinkles but without the irritation. More information on Matrixyl.
Palmitoyl Tripeptide-3 (Syn Coll): A protein that is a fragment of collagen; increases collagen production, hyaluronic acid production, and skin thickness; reduces surface roughness and wrinkle depth. More information on Palmitoyl Tripeptide-3.
ALPHA HYDROXY ACIDS: A group of mild organic acids including glycolic acid, lactic acid, citric acid, tartaric acid, pyretic acid, and malic acid; serve to increase cell turnover, increase the deposition of glycosaminoglycans in the upper dermis, unclog pores, and weaken the epidermal barrier to allow effective penetration of other topical agents.
HYALURONIC ACID: A glycosaminoglycan (GAG) component of skin tissue that decreases with age; an excellent water-binding agent that holds 200 times its weight in water; helps to reduce spider veins, deeply hydrates, and plumps fine lines by filling the spaces between the skin fibers and cells.
MMP INHIBITORS: Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are skin enzymes that increase as we age and degrade the skin matrix that supports the skin. The use of MMP inhibitors retards the enzymes thereby reducing the development of wrinkles and sagging. More information on matrix metalloproteinases.
PERFLUORODECALIN: The most efficient gas carrier known to science; works by supplying oxygen to the skin while simultaneously removing waste products. More information on perfluorodecalin.
PYCNOGENOL: A potent antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals and enhances the effect of vitamins C and E; twenty times more powerful than vitamin C and fifty times more powerful than vitamin E. More information on Pycnogenol.
YEAST BETA GLUCAN(Nayad): Derived from the cell walls of a bakers yeast, it is considered to be one of the most potent stimulators of the body?s immune system. Because of the complexity of its formulation, cosmetics containing Nayad are often expensive. More information on Nayad.
