Aloe Vera based, this light serum contains three of the most talked about, patented trademarked actives in anti-aging skin care. The same amounts are included that were used in the clinical studies. Most beneficial to aging skin, it can be used alone, or with any of the other Skin Drink treatment formulas to create a potent anti-aging cocktail for firmer, lifted skin.
PhytoCellTec™ - a novel plant cell culture technology has been invented to cultivate dedifferentiated callus cells from a rare Swiss apple. These apple stem cells are rich in epigenetic factors and metabolites, assuring the longevity of skin cells. PhytoCellTec™ Malus Domestica has been shown to protect human skin stem cells.
PhytoCellTec™ Malus Domestica protects longevity of skin stem cells, delays biological aging of essential cells and, combats chronological aging of the skin.
Derm SRC™ A potent mixture of unique bamboo silica, glucosamine, and pea extract rich in powerful peptides that dramatically reduce appearance of wrinkles. Natural exfoliation gives your skin a smoother, more luminous look.
Ellagi-C™ High in Phytonutrients for Antioxidant, Antimicrobial Protection. This compound found extensively in red raspberries, walnuts and strawberries. Being a polyphenol, ellagic acid has been shown to be particularly useful in boosting the immune system. As an antioxidant, ellagic acid helps prevent unwanted damage to cell membranes by neutralizing free radicals.
Ellagic Acid is a type of Polyphenol. A Korean study reported at the April 2009 Experimental Biology Meeting discusses the potential of a topical form of ellagic acid in the management of wrinkles.
Here is what was found:
The human skin cells treated with EA showed signs of reduced inflammation. In particular there was a reduction in MMP (matrix metalloproteinase), a substance that contributes to the breakdown of collagen and leads to the coarsening of skin.
This adds to some promising research that was published in 2006 in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology. In that investigation, it was determined that ellagic acid may encourage more elasticity and suppleness in an aged skin model. The researchers of that paper suggested that EA could be used as a preventive measure against the “normal” changes that occur in aging skin.
Collectively, this evidence reveals that ellagic acid may combat wrinkles by protecting the collagen in skin tissue and reducing inflammation. In addition, it appears that EA also confers some protection against the harmful rays of the sun.
