Hyaluronic Acid (HA)
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in great abundance in young skin. HA has the ability to hold large quantities of water that it utilizes to feed to thirsty skin cells. Over time, free radicals produced mostly through exposure to pollution and sunlight, destroy the natural hyaluronic acid in our bodies. Middle-aged people are estimated to have less than half of the hyaluronic acid they had when they were young.
HA is supremely hydrating and one of the leading anti-aging products on the market today. It strengthens the skin's ability to retain moisture up to 1,000-fold the instant you apply it. With regular use, HA will greatly improve your skin's texture and moisture content, and will help to make fine lines and wrinkles less visible.
Squalane oil is a moisturizing component derived from the pits of olives that has the unique ability to permeate the skin to lubricate and promote healing. Squalane boosts the skin's ability to accelerate new cell growth, nourish, hydrate, oxygenate and protect itself. This amazing oil softens the skin and reduces tiny lines and wrinkles. It is reported to help clear up difficult skin problems such as eczema, dermatitis, and other rashes when other remedies have failed. It is also beneficial for healing skin cracks, which are a significant health issue in the winter as germs can easily enter the body through cracked fingers/hands that have dried out from clod conditions. Squalane oil is a superior lubricant that provides germ killing activity when it is properly concentrated in the skin. It also helps to prevent the formation of brown age spots. In this regard it is a major ingredient that prevents skin aging. Sqaulane oil is frequently used in cosmetic preparations to soften the skin, to reduce small facial wrinkles, and as an anti-bacterial agent. It has been reported that Squalane speeds wound healing.
Collagen is present in normal skin. As dead skin cells are sloughed off, new cells replace them. As we age, our supply of collagen is diminished or degraded. This leads to laugh lines, wrinkles and other creases in the skin. Applying a collagen-enriched lotion or serum to your skin will help to firm and rejuvenate the skin from beneath the surface.
Hydrolyzed wheat protein is a natural plant oil and emollient valued for its film forming properties on the skin. This film forming ability helps skin's natural moisturizing factor by preventing water loss from the skin. It imparts softness and helps to condition skin and hair.
Aloe Vera is a renowned external analgesic with skin soothing, humectant, and emollient qualities. It heals and soothe inflamed or irritated skin. Many products on the market claim to have Aloe Vera in order to sell them, but unless they have at least 5%, the Aloe Vera will not be effective. Our products that contain Aloe Vera have 5% or more Aloe Vera in them.
Studies show that application of Vitamin E in skin preprations is highly effective in protecting the skin from the aging effects of pollution and sun exposure. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant which slows down the oxidation processes and inhibits premature aging.

Argireline (Acetyl Hexapeptide-8)
Argireline reduces the depth of facial expression wrinkles. It is a peptide (acetyl hexapeptide-3) that inhibits SNARE complex formation and catecholamine release, resulting in the reduction of the degree of existing facial wrinkles and demonstrated effectiveness against their development with regular use. It is a safer, cheaper and milder alternative to the Boton toxin since it topically targets the same wrinkle formation mechanism in a very different way.
Matrixyl 3000 (Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7)
Matrixyl 3000 is formerly known as Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-3. This peptide has an anti-wrinkling and lifting effect. Its two components, Pal-GHK and Pal-GQPR, act in synergy to restore and maintain skin's youthful appearance. With regular use of Matrixyl 3000, it is possible to obtain up to 45% less wrinkling in just two months.

Renovage is a peptide that lengthens the life of our cells and helps to repair cell damage. Clinically proven to improve the various manifestations associated with skin aging in mature skin, Renovage visibly reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, large pores and skin redness, increases the skinís natural moisture content and barrier function, and enhances skinís overall firmness, tone and elasticity, while restoring the skinís overall texture. According to the manufacturer of this peptide, it is possible to achieve up to a 57% increase in hydration after one month and up to 83% increase after six months!
Syn-Coll (Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5)
Skin aging and, in particular, chronic UV exposure lead to degenerative changes in skin that lead to increased skin fragility, leathery skin appearance, and formation of wrinkles. Collagen represents the main component of the dermal connection tissue. Syn-Coll has a unique molecular sequence to mimic the human body's own mechanism to produce collagen. It actively compensates for any collagen deficit in the skin and makes the skin look younger. Clinical trials have shown that Syn-Coll is capable of reducing and changing the type and aspect of wrinkles that add years to your appearance.
