Face Renewal Cream is a mixture of scientifically backed, highly-effective ingredients to mitigate the effects of age on skin for a more youthful complexion. This is done with seven poweful anti-aging substances;
Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) - A critical nutrient for overall health, although very little reaches the skin when administered orally. As levels of vitamin C in skin decline with age, replenishing levels directly in the skin can help combat collagen degradation and oxidative stress. Results from clinical trials show that when applied topically, vitamin C promotes collagen formation and mitigates the effects of free radicals, helping maintain firmer and more youthful skin.
Azelaic Acid - A chemical found in various grains. Also naturally syntesized by the yeast that exists on healthy skin. A potent antioxidant with powerful anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties that has shown some promising results to brighten skin tone, visibly improve skin texture, and reduce the visibility of blemishes. This ingredient is commonly used to treat acne and research has demonstrated that azelaic acid can be used to effectively treat rosacea, flaky skin, and hyper-pigmentation. Azelaic Acid also functions as a keratolytic, which means it can help return any abnormal growths on the skin back to normal.
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) - naturally found in the mitochondria of our cells as part of an enzyme system that assists in the production of energy. Both water and fat-soluble, therefore is easily absorbed through the ipid (fat) layers of the skin and also works as a free-radical fighter in the cell plasma membrane to act as a strong antioxidant. When applied topically, there can be a significant decrease in the appearance of under-eye circles, loss of firmness, and puffiness. ALA could also reduce swelling and puffiness in the face.
ALA's anti-inflammatory effect will also help reduce visible blotchiness and redness, resulting in a more even skin tone. ALA may help minimize the appearance of pores and produce a healthier glow to skin. It can also be an effective solution to help minimize visible fine lines and wrinkles because of its capacity to regulate the production of nitric oxide, which influences blood flow to the skin.
DMAE (dimethylaminoethanol) - Antioxidant membrane stabilizer which can be applied directly to the skin to help tighten and reduce appearance of sagging, as well as help improve firmness and elasticity while smoothing linse and wrinkles. DMAE may enhacne the effect of other antioxidants and is frequently used in combination with Vitamins A, E, C, or alpha lipoic acid.
Aloe Vera - A cactus plant, as well as a member to the Liliaceae family. Native to dry climates like those found in parts of Africa and India. Used for centuries in traditional medicine. Aloe vera contains two hormones: Auxin and Gibberellins. These two hormones have wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties that may improve the appearance of skin. The Gibberellins in aloe vera may also stimulate the growth of new cells. Aloe vera may be used to encourage skin to heal with minimal scarring.
Estriol (E3) - is a "weak" estrogen which can be synthesized from plant sources. It doesn't need to be counterbalanced by progesterone and won't have a widespread effect on the body. Thi smakes estriol an ideal estrogen for topical use since research suggests its application remains in the skin, rather than the blood stream. One of the many roles of estrogen in th ebody is to increase the synthesis of collagen, which is the skin's underlying support structure. Collagen also promotes skin thickness and elasticity. The skin is an important estrogen-responsive endocrin tissue. Without the growth-promoting effects of estrogen, the skin can wither away.
Progesterone - A hormone that occurs naturally in the body and is produced by the ovaries. It has been shown to reverse the acceleration of the skin's aging process due to menopause, helping to maintain a more youthful appearance.
