Key ingredients and their function:
Palmitoyl Lys-Thr-Ser (Matrixyl 3000) – firms and tightens, mimicking the effects of Botox. This peptide works to repair defragmented collagen and repair photo aged skin. Using a peptide of 5 amino acids for improving penetration of molecules through the lipidic structures of the skin.
Snap-8 – relaxes wrinkles.
L-ascorbic Acid – Water soluble Vitamin C; triggers the amino acids to strengthen collagen and assist in brightening and smoothing skin.
Sodium Hyaluronate-Natural moisturising factor drawing water to the cells holding 1000 times its weight in water. Plumps, lubricates and moisturises the skin; prevents trans-epidermal water loss.
Oil of Olea Europaea – This prized oil comes from the bluish-black fruits that mature out of small, yellowish-white blooms from the evergreen Olive tree. The pulp contains both saturated and unsaturated fatty acids. Made up of a high-quality Vitamin E-rich unsaturated Oleic Acid. Restores moisture and nourishment to dry rough skin.
Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-3-Palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7, once called palmitoyl tetrapeptide-3, consists of a chain of four amino acids coupled with palmitic acid, a fatty acid which allows for the peptides to penetrate the skin. This peptide may be useful in fighting inflammation, the ultimate culprit behind aging skin’s loss of elasticity and development of wrinkles. It is possible that palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7 not only reduces the production of inflammation-producing substances but might also act to stimulate skin regeneration.
Acetyl Octapeptide – When applied topically, this amazing peptide works similarly to Botulinum Toxin injections. Without ingesting toxins, you can achieve equivalent results using skin care products with acetyl octapeptide-3. Reduces the deepness of wrinkles.
Hydroxy succinimide – activates the elimination of blood originated pigments responsible for dark colour and inflammation in the skin.
Hibiscus Sabdariffa Flower Extract – they’re not flowers but calyces. It’s the calyx, the red, fleshy covering enclosing the flower’s seed pod, which is high in calcium, niacin, riboflavin, Vitamin C, phosphorus, carotene and Iron aiding the immune system.
