Each ingredient was chosen because of its valuable anti-aging properties. Read on to learn more about our ground-breaking Facial Firming Therapy and its powerhouse ingredients.
Acetyl hexapeptide 8, which is also known as Argireline, is a peptide compound that is used in skin care products to diminish the appearance of wrinkles. Fine lines and wrinkles on the face, particularly around the eyes and mouth, are usually caused by recurrent facial expressions, such as smiling, frowning, or other facial expressions that bring about creases such as raising your brows when in deep concentration or frustration. When people make these expressions, the face contorts based on the contraction of the muscles beneath the skin. Acetyl hexapeptide 8 temporarily rids you of wrinkles by inhibiting the release of neurotransmitters and relaxing the facial muscles, thereby preventing muscle contractions. If you want to remove wrinkles, such as frown and laugh lines, then this peptide, commonly referred to as “Botox in a bottle” may be the option for you, though it is not a solution for significantly pronounced lines.
Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 is a chemical designed to communicate with healthy skin cells in order to keep them acting healthy. Cell communication is a fairly new conceptin the skin care industry. Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 is made up of chains of amino acids, and has the ability to infiltrate the epidermis and penetrate deep into the dermis, to stimulate collagen production as well as healthy tissue growth. It not only speeds up collagen synthesis in the skin, but this peptide also has the ability to communicate with skin cells and thwart toxins from penetrating and causing harm. The peptide does this by imitating the body’s natural communication mechanisms that instruct the cells’ functionality and how to perform properly. This kind of communication helps skin cells to either discard of the toxins or translate it as inert.
Acetyl dipeptide-1 cetyl ester is a peptide found naturally in the body. When used in skin care products the peptide enhances skin comfort and relaxation by modulating perception of unpleasant sensations and promoting production of constituents of elastic fibers to fortify the skin. Initially, it helps prevent wrinkles and can gradually reduce the frequency of muscle contractions and skin tension that contribute to the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles.
Macrocystis Pyrifera Extract is a brown sea algae or seaweed that is normally found in the Antarctic Ocean. It is frequently used in facial serums because of its potent anti-aging and nourishing properties. Brown algae assist in preventing damage to amino acids as well as protecting the cell’s membrane. Accordingly, the skin is protected against damage caused by free radicals, which are highly unstable molecules that accelerate the aging process by attacking healthy cells and destroying collagen. The seaweed extract can also restructure the cell membrane to undo cell damage and return them to their healthy state.
Furthermore, for individuals who suffer from irritated and dry skin, Macrocystis Pyrifera Extract will be an immensely beneficial ingredient to incorporate into their skin care routine. It will help moisturize and hydrate the skin while soothing it because of its anti-inflammatory properties.
