DRONE-TARGETED COPPER PEPTIDE
A copper-based peptide which stimulates collagen and elastin synthesis. The peptide is encapsulated in a polymer shell with specific external ligands which guide the shell to fibroblast cells (where collagen is made). This means that the capsule is directed, like a drone, to a specific target cell. After binding, the drone penetrates inside the fibroblast. When inside, the polymer encapsulation is naturally broken down and the active peptide can diffuse out of the encapsulation in a time release manner, stimulating collagen and elastin production for plumper, more youthful-looking skin.
A combination of the peptides palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7 and palmitoyl oligopeptide, matrixyl 3000 is ideal for firming and plumping the skin. It works by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin in the skin’s extracellular matrix, which is the framework our skin sits on. Each peptide mimics a fragment of collagen, which “tricks” the skin into thinking its own collagen has broken down so it must make more. This helps to restore the extracellular matrix to leave the skin firmer with fine lines and wrinkles visibly reduced.
A protective peptide which is naturally produced in the body, carnosine is able to block the glycation process. This is the natural ageing process in which sugars react with proteins such as collagen and elastin, transforming them into advanced glycation end-products (A.G.E.s). A.G.E.s modify skin’s collagen and elastin which leads to fine lines and wrinkles. Carnosine is able to block the glycation process and prevent A.G.E.s from being formed. This inhibits the process which causes fine lines and wrinkles
EXPRESSION LINE PEPTIDE
A high-performance peptide, Expression Line Peptide works to fight expression wrinkles by minimising muscle contraction. It is able to stop nerves from sending signals to the muscles to contract. This prevents the muscles from contracting, helping to visibly minimise the appearance of expression lines for a visibly smoother complexion.
MULTI-WEIGHT HYALURONIC ACID
A humectant that can hold up to 1000x its own weight in water. Smaller weights of hyaluronic acid penetrate deep into the stratum corneum to draw water upwards through the layers, while the larger sizes sit on top of the complexion creating a hydration reservoir to feed the skin with moisture. Used together, low and high weights of hyaluronic acid distribute hydration throughout the entirety of the skin for a smooth and supple complexion.
A form of carbohydrate, prebiotics act as ‘food’ for our skin’s natural microbiome. This helps to promote the growth of beneficial bacteria, such as strains of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria, while blocking the growth of bad bacteria. This rebalances the skin’s microbiome, reinforcing its defence against external aggressors.
One of the major components of our natural extracellular matrix, helping to maintaining a firm and supple complexion, while providing intense hydration to the skin.
Hesperidin helps to stimulate blood circulation encouraging detoxification around the eye area to eliminate the appearance of puffiness and dark circles. Hesperidin is also used as a brightening agent as it helps to suppress the transport of melanosomes to stop aggregations of melanin in the skin, leading to a reduction in pigmentation and dark circles.
Ideal for reducing the appearance of puffiness and darkness under the eyes. Able to shrink the blood vessels underneath the eye, it diminishes dark circles while firming and lifting the entire eye area.
Helps to shield against damaging environmental pollutants, able to form a film over the skin, Moringa acts as an ‘urban shield’ to bat away pollution particles before they can create free radicals leading to premature ageing and photo damage.
Blocks the glycation process and prevent A.G.E.s from being formed, inhibiting the process which causes fine lines and wrinkles. Carnosine also helps protects the skin from infrared rays which leaves collagen untouched for firm, smooth skin.
