This formula contain high quantities of:
Vitamin C Ester
Our formulation contains a high ratio of Vitamin C (12.21%) which is known to plump the collagen layer beneath your skin’s surface thereby decreasing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and Hyaluronic Acid (HA), sometimes referred to as the Fountain of Youth.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA)
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a gel-like water holding molecule that is the space filler and cushioning agent in all mammals. HA cushions joints, nerves, hydrates skin and hair, and fills the eye. Our bodies contain roughly 15 grams of HA and it is found in virtually every part of the body.
Almost half of the body’s HA is located in the collagen of skin and it is logical that HA plays a vital role here. Hyaluronic acid helps to retain over a 1000 times its weight in water within the cells of skin, making it an excellent moisturizer. In fact, no other biological substance can retain as much water as HA resulting in increased smoothness, softening and decreased wrinkles. Equally important is its ability to remove waste matter from cells including those where there is little blood circulation. Today, hyaluronic acid is considered equally important, if not more important, than Collagen.
Zinc Oxide provides skin protection and makeup blends beautifully with this as a base.
Hydrolyzed Oat Protein is a skin conditioner that increases that silky feeling.
Cocoa Bio Ferment: The Olmecs, an ancient people who populated what is now Mexico from 1300BC to 300BC, are believed to be the first to have domesticated Theobroma cacao, the Cocoa tree. By 500 AD, the Mayans were growing Cocoa in dedicated plantations, with beverages made from the fruit of the plant being available only to the elite. Cocoa beans were used as currency, a practice that continued into the 1900’s in parts of the Yucatan.
Cocoa has always held a special attraction particularly when incarnated as chocolate. Often thought to be addictive, cocoa’s mystique continues to evoke potent images. Historically, cocoa was considered to have strong medicinal properties and was used to treat inflammation, anemia, fever, gout, and lung disorders.
Cocoa contains several classes of materials with strong biological activity. Most notably, cocoa is rich in xanthine alkaloids, flavonols, and related oligomers. This cocktail of phytochemicals provides some interesting benefits that can be harnesses by Cosmetic Scientists to solve specific problems. Research shows that Cocoa can reduce platelet aggregation, inhibit lipid peroxidation, inhibit excess Ornithine Decarboxylase activity, and stimulate cutaneous blood flow.
Typically, cocoa is applied to treat conditions like cellulite, focusing on the benefits of the xanthine alkaloids present as well as the ability of flavones to block estrogen receptors. With the enhanced delivery of phytoactives resulting from biofermentation with Lactobacillus, Cocoa Bioferment PF is also ideal for the treatment of under eye circles.
The arachidonic acid cascade mediated inflammation, in many cases through the action on leukotrienes. A study was performed to evaluate the ability of cocoa flavanoids to inhibit leukotriene formation. In this study human recombinant 5-lipoxygenase was used to convert arachidonic acid to 5-hydroperoxy-6E,8Z,11Z,14Z-eicosatetraenoic acid (5-HpETE), a precursor to 5,6 leukotriene A4 (LTA4) formation. LTA4 is a critical intermediate to the synthesis of other leukotrienes and as such a suitable marker.
As LTA4 is an unstable epoxide, its presence is measured indirectly by evaluating the concentrations of its hydrolysis products. The antioxidant properties of flavanols is undisputed, however flavanols have an additional mechanism by which they can protect cells.
Allantoin: A natural substance that naturally produces keratin. This property of Allantoin helps in the aid of softening skin while healing quickly and effectively.
Caffeine Lipsome: is designed to have slimming and “De-puffing” effect. Caffeine increases micro-circulation, helping to reduce the swelling, specifically when swelling and puffiness occurs around the eye area.
Caffeine can also increase fat metabolism which may help to reduce the adipose tissue in fat chambers that contribute to the appearance of cellulite. As a result, formulators frequently use caffeine in products designed to have slimming and anti‐cellulite effects.
Studies have shown that Caffeine is also useful for increasing photo-protection and treating atopic dermatitis. A study funded by the Laboratory for Cancer Research investigated the benefits of topically applied caffeine and reported that after a twice weekly UVB exposure for 20 weeks, SKH‐1 hairless mice that were treated with caffeine had a decrease in the occurrence of malignant and nonmalignant skin tumors by 44% and 72% respectively. Other research involving 83 patients published in Dermatology has shown that the topical application of caffeine effectively treats the symptoms associated with atopic dermatitis. It is hypothesized that the topical application of caffeine elevates levels of cyclic adenosine‐3’,5’‐monophosphate by inhibiting phosphodiesterase.
Caffeine Liposome contains 1% Caffeine. By incorporating it into a liposome we can enhance the delivery of caffeine to maximize its efficacy.
Never, ever tested on animals except the human kind.
