A Serum with instant firming and tightening abilities, along with moisture and long term multi-peptides to combat aging. Skin clarity and tone will be improved.
DMAE: improves the firmness of the skin and helps reduce the visual appearance of sagging skin, although the mechanism of action is unknown. It is an amine-based alcohol, a precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, present in nerve tissue in small amounts and more abundant in fish. DMAE acts as a free radical scavenger due to the high electron content of its nitrogen atom. Once phosphorylated, DMAE is incorporated into the membrane of cells. In addition, DMAE is an immediate precursor to choline, which is involved in cell membrane biosynthesis.*
Sea Kelp Bioferment: This ferment obtained from sea kelp supplies a complete nutrient medium which moisturizes skin and scalp. The substrate for fermentation is kelp, a sea macroalga. Fermentation makes the cell contents of this alga readily available to the skin.This active is rich in fucoidan, caragenaan, algin, fucoxanthin, minerals and many active chemicals. It provides minerals like iodine, copper, molybdate, magnesium and more required as cofactors in enzymatic reactions of lipid metabolism and energy conversion.
Coconut: Amino acids, sugars, vitamins and growth factors (like kinetin) are present in the liquid called coconut water or milk. This is why scientists use coconut milk in the growth medium when they want to grow plant cells in culture.
Sodium PCA: Sodium pyroglutamate is a derivative of glutamic acid, which is very hygroscopic. It is naturally produced by our bodies and one of the components of “natural moisturizing factor,” which our skin produces to slow down water loss to the environment. Sodium PCA is used as a moisturizer in skin care.
Bisabolol: This natural chemical is an unsaturated monocyclic sesquiterpene alcohol, partly responsible for the calming effect of chamomile essential oil, but will not lead to sensitization or allergic reactions. Bisabolol increases skin hydration, improves overall skin tone and greatly reduces redness and irritation.
Hydrolyzed Collagen: This peptide mix is obtained from marine collagen (fish skin), so this active is not suitable for vegans. This is one of the few animal-derived actives we use because plants don’t make collagen. The peptides can be as short as two amino acids, and as long as about 30 amino acids length, up to molecular weight 5,000. Collagen peptides are rich in glycine, proline, alanine and other amino acids. Use this active to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve the overall tone and texture of the skin. The peptides will also promote and support the synthesis of collagen.
Hyaluronic acid: or sodium hyaluronate, is a polysaccharide composed of long chains of N-acetyl-D-glucosamine alternating with glucuronic acid. In our skin, it stabilizes the intercellular (in-between cells) space in the dermis and contributes significantly to activities essential to skin health. Because of its tremendous capacity to hold water, it will help keep skin moist.
Arthrospira Extract: This extract provides proteins, carbohydrates, essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, carotenoids, and even some sulfolipids. The properties of this extracts make it an essential active for redness, irritation, and blemish-prone skin.
Fucoidan: applied to the skin will promote and support the synthesis of collagen and fights free radicals. The fucoidan we use is extracted and purified from brown algae.
Argireline: the botox alternative for muscle relaxation, to inhibit the production of facial lines.
