We’re Elevating The Conversation About Skincare!

 

First Things First.

They are a skincare company (the country’s oldest), and they specialize in creating therapeutic solutions for damaged skin. Rather than simply “making over” your skin, they develop science that works to enhance your body’s natural inclination to regenerate healthy skin cells. This makes you healthy in appearance, in spirit, and in fact.

 

Talk About Good Chemistry.

Six years ago, their team of scientists, doctors, and botanists began an intensive R&D effort to test combinations of natural ingredients that would give burned skin the ability to rejuvenate itself, aka: make it healthy again. To their great delight, the team discovered one in particular that not only rejuvenated damaged skin, but reduced signs of aging on healthy skin.

 

Enter, The Game Changer.

The discovery?

A formula comprised of probiotics (good bacteria), plant stem cells, and peptides (amino acids), all of which uniquely combine to enhance the skin’s natural ability to renew itself.

 

What Are Plant Stem Cells?

 

Stem Cells in Plants

Stem cells function as a source of new cells to grow or replace specialized tissues. To perform this function, these cells must divide to renew themselves, while some of their descendants eventually differentiate to build up new tissues. By this definition, stem cells are particularly important for plant growth, because virtually all tissues of the plant descend from small groups of stem cells located in their growing apices, within structures called the apical meristems.

 

What Are Peptides?

 

Anti-Aging Peptides in Skin Care Products

Science has proven that peptides can help manage wrinkles in your skin and reverse the signs of aging. So how do peptides in skin care products make your skin look younger? Many skin care products contain them, so just what are peptides?

 

What are Peptides for Skin Care?

Human skin is comprised mostly of collagen. Collagen is a protein comprised of long segments of amino acids arranged like a chain.

  • Collagen provides a foundation and thickness for skin
  • Women under 30 have ample collagen, which results in smooth, tight skin
  • The rest of us have less collagen – skin tends to be thinner, revealing more wrinkles

 

When collagen breaks down, short segments of amino acids are formed. These are the tiny proteins and active molecules known as peptides. Peptides in skin care can provide significant anti-aging benefits.

 

Skin Care Peptides Encourage Collagen Production for More Youthful Skin

When collagen is depleted by age and environmental factors, including sunlight, it is not fully replaced. As a result, smooth, young skin slowly becomes thinner and wrinkled over time. As collagen deteriorates, it produces certain peptides. Research from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) shows that these peptides send a “message” to your skin that it has lost collagen and needs to generate more. When skin care peptides are applied topically, your skin “thinks” that it’s a collagen break down product and that your body needs to manufacture new collagen. So, you can successfully minimize wrinkles and give your skin a more youthful appearance with the application of skin care peptides that trigger the production of collagen. It is therefore important to use a good peptide wrinkle cream.

 

The most commonly used peptide in skin care is Matrixyl (palmitoyl- or oligopeptide pentapeptide). This is a neuropeptide that reduces fine lines very well. Research shows that the right peptide skin cream can play an important role in repairing wounds and improving skin conditions. including eczema and dermatitis. No adverse side effects have been reported in the use of skin care peptides.

 

Peptides in Skin Care Products Help Remove Wrinkles

Wrinkle creams containing anti-aging peptides are popular and effective skin care products. Argireline (Acetyl hexapeptide) has been marketed as a safer, less expensive, and non-invasive alternative to Botox. This anti-aging peptide works by causing facial muscles to relax, thereby minimizing wrinkles. It is often combined with Leuphasyl, which relaxes tiny muscles under the skin. This is particularly helpful for fading wrinkles around the eyes and for forehead wrinkles. Octapeptide is a lengthened version of Argireline. By making the small muscles under your skin longer and reducing muscle tension, octapeptide fades the appearance of fine lines
