MSM or Methyl Sulfonyl Methane is a source of bio-available organic Sulphur, which is present in every cell of the body. MSM has proved to be a great skin softener which helps prevent cross linking of skin, a cause of wrinkles and lines. Studies have shown it penetrates the layers of the dermis and helps improve production of collagen and keratin. MSM is primarily used as a health supplement for helping with pain control.
MSM comes in crystalline powder form. It was during trials in the USA by Dr Stanley Jacob at his pain clinic, that many patients noticed how much softer their skin had become and any lines were much less noticeable. Cosmetic companies in the USA and UK began to manufacture creams and gels containing MSM with great success.
MSM has no relationship to the drug Sulphur or sulphites or sulphates. It is non toxic.
Also known as Sodium Hyaluronate, Hyaluronic Acid is the king of hydrators. Hyaluronic Acid is not an acid but a plant derived carbohydrate capable of holding up to 1000 times its own weight in water.
Hyaluronic Acid is also produced naturally by the body. It provides continuous moisture to the skin. This plumpness and high moisture level is very evident in babies and young children. With age, the ability of the skin to produce Hyaluronic Acid decreases leaving the skin wrinkled and sagging. Hyaluronic Acid is found throughout the body in bones, cartilage, joints, eyes, lips, gums and skin. By using it topically in a serum much of the moisture loss can be replenished, revitalizing ageing skin. To be effective, the correct form of Hyaluronic Acid and sufficient quantity needs to be used. These issues have been addressed by MiSMo, with our fantastic Rejuvenating Gel, producing a superior serum.
Matrixyl Synthe 6 contains the bio peptides Palmitoyl Oligopeptide and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide 3, derived from amino acids. They act as signal messengers to encourage skin tissue to restore itself to a more youthful strength while promoting deep tissue repair. Collagen and elastin production is accelerated. Skin tone and elasticity are significantly improved. Matrixyl Synthe 6® was designed to promote collagen production while strengthening the essential structure of skin tissue.
Matrixyl Synthe 6® reduced the surface area occupied by deep wrinkles 44.9% on average in clinical tests conducted by the manufacturer, Sederma. This double peptide complex provides a stronger anti-aging effect on the appearance of skin as it stimulates natural Hyaluronic Acid for greater moisture retention which keeps skin’s cellular matrix plumped, normalized and smoothed. In combination with the breakthrough transdermal technology delivery system Matrixyl 3000® helps to minimize the appearance of expression lines such as crow’s feet and creases under the eyes. Due to peptide stimulation of increased cell turnover, skin appears softer and firmer.
To see the effects of Matrixyl Synthe 6® have a look at the before and after images on our Rejuvenating Gel page.
We use a form of Vitamin C called Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate (VC-IP). This is an oil soluble form of Vitamin C which enters skin cells very easily and can be up to 7 times more effective than water soluble forms of Vitamin C. Unlike Ascorbic Acid which can be very drying on the skin, VC-IP will not dry your skin and is very hydrating. This is the most efficient, stable and non-irritating form of Vitamin C. It is a potent anti-oxidant which helps stimulate the production of collagen. Skin brightening, increased elasticity and reduction of pigmentation are other major benefits.
Vitamin B3, also known as Nicotinamide, has been well proven to assist in healing acne and pimples, excellent for fighting the signs of ageing, evens skin tone and strengthens the skin barrier. Where antibiotics become resistant to bacteria after about 8 weeks B3 does not. Vitamin B3 is also a super hydrator.
Beautifeye™ is derived from the Persian Silk Tree. With regular use of Beautifeye™, the integrity of skin tissue on the eye area is substantially strengthened. Lines are reduced and a strong eye lift is achieved. Added benefits of reduced puffiness and dark circles team well with the other active ingredients used.
Lanachrys® is a botanical from Africa. Lanachrys activates lipolysis to stimulate fat elimination. Normal fat that helps support the eye can then migrate forward into the lower eyelids, causing it to be puffy. Lanacyrys® has a draining and de-puffing effect.
Aldavine™ is an algal polysaccharide from the sea, which reduces puffy eyes and dark circles by stimulating the drainage of accumulated lymphatic fluid caused by hormone variation, diet, sinus and ageing.
ac.net™ is comprised of Oleanolic Acid (from olive leaves), Nordihydroguaiaretic acid (from lignan in trees) in an osmotic gel. ac.net™ targets 4 areas that lead to acne; Excess sebum (oiliness), excess hyperkeratinisation (abnormal shedding of dead cells), bacteria and inflammation.
