Ultra rich anti-aging moisturizer combats against dryness while it reduces the signs of premature aging. Vitamin C Ester and peptides stimulate collagen synthesis to firm the skin and diminish wrinkles. Repairs and restores the skin’s moisture barrier. Powerhouse of antioxidants protect against the damaging and aging affects of free radicals. Leaves the skin soft, supple and radiant.
Palmitoyl Oligopeptide/Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide – Peptides composed of amino acids that act as “feedback peptides,” selected natural messengers that act specifically on the cells of the dermis, signaling them to synthesize connective tissue composed of collagen I, III, IV, Hyaluronic Acid and Glucosaminoglycans. Firms the skin and decreases lines and wrinkles.
Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate – One of the latest, most stable, bioavailable forms of oil-soluble Vitamin C ester that has excellent penetration into the skin. Tested and found to be a highly effective antioxidant and an MMP inhibitor. MMP (Matrix Metalloproteases) are enzymes called collagenase and elastase that break down collagen and are responsible for elasticity loss. Clinical studies have shown it increases fibroblast activity and aids in the acceleration of collagen synthesis. It clarifies and brightens the skin by inhibiting melanin. New tests have shown that this form of Vitamin C protects DNA. It helps in the prevention of UV induced cell damage.
Hybrid Sunflower Oil – Contains high content of gamma linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid that is naturally present in skin lipids, giving it great affinity to epidermis. Helps protect and maintain the skin’s barrier naturally within the stratum corneum.
Sodium Hyaluronate – Powerful humectant, capable of binding 1800 times its weight in water. Acts like moisture magnet to pull water between cells, directly increasing the stratum corneum’s moisture.
Green Tea, Grape Seed, CoEnzyme Q10, Pine Bark, Vitamin E – Powerful antioxidants inhibit the damaging and aging effects of free radicals. Safeguards the skin’s firmness by inhibiting enzymes elastase, collagenase and hyaluronidase from degradation.
