Healthy, youthful skin has a smooth outer layer (epidermis) that is responsible for maintaining skin moisture and protecting it from harmful environmental influences. The skin’s colour and tone are uniform and free of spots. Collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycans are abundant structural elements.
But why does skin thin and wrinkle as we age?
It is probably due to a multi-factorial process of both intrinsic aging and extrinsic aging.
Intrinsic aging is a natural aging process that takes place regardless of external influences. Every year after the age of 30, we produce 1.5% less collagen. As a result, the skin becomes thinner and more fragile. The production of elastin, ceramide, and glycosaminoglycans also decreases. The formation of wrinkles as a result of internal aging is inevitable.
External aging occurs parallel to internal aging, as a result of the harmful effects of sunlight, but also other harmful environmental factors (smoking, additives, chemicals…). External aging is accompanied by thickening of the stratum corneum of the skin, along with the formation of age spots, and the loss of collagen, elastin, ceramides and glycosaminoglycans is emphasized.
Alone or together, these processes cause wrinkling of the skin, thinning of the skin, brown spots and deepening of wrinkles.
How to restore the skin’s lost elements and renew glow?
The solution is REJUVENACE – a patented product that contains hydrolized fish collagen, MSM, chondroitin, glucosamine, plant extracts, vitamin C and phytoceramides in optimal concentrations.
– hydrolyzed fish collagen (Peptan F2000 HD): Peptan is a natural bioactive product of high purity that contains more than 97% protein. Peptan – collagen peptides have high bioavailability and activity, and its hydrolyzed form facilitates digestion and absorption. Peptan contains 18 amino acids and glycine, proline and hydroxyproline make up about 50% of the total amino acid content of Peptan; the concentration of glycine and proline in Peptan is 10 to 20 times higher than in other proteins. While glycine is the basis for building chains of DNA and RNA molecules, which ensures its participation in vital functions of the body, including the transport of nutrients that cells use for energy, proline prevents damage to cells by free radicals and ensures the production of its own collagen.
– methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a source of sulfur that ensures the construction and integrity of collagen and keratin
– chondroitin: increases cartilage cell proliferation and prevents age-related loss of collagen
– glucosamine: stimulates the synthesis of hyaluronic acid, which helps in wound healing, improves skin hydration and reduces wrinkles. In addition to its anti-inflammatory effect, glucosamine, as a tyrosinase inhibitor, inhibits melanin production and is useful in the treatment of hyperpigmentation changes
– plant extracts (grape seed extract, mangosteen seeds extract): have antioxidant, antiinflammatory, and antimicrobial effects and also stimulate collagen synthesis in the skin
– vitamin C: is a normal skin constituent that is found at high levels in both the dermis and epidermis. Aging, however, causes a decline in vitamin C content in both the epidermis and dermis., while excessive exposures to UV light or pollutants (cigarette smoke) may also lower vitamin C content, primarily in the epidermis. Vitamin C is an essential part of skin health both as a small molecular weight antioxidant and as a critical factor for collagen synthesis. Vitamin C decreases photodamage and is needed for adequate wound healing
– ceramides: are one of the main constituents of epidermal intercellular cement. They play a role in the skin’s hydrolipidic barrier function. With age and during the winter, the concentration of ceramides in the skin decreases. Fitoceramides (Ceramosides) composed of patented active ingredients combining natural phytoceramides from wheat and an efficiency booster, digalactosyl-diglyceride (DGDG), a lipid essential for skin hydration. Phytoceramides prevent melanogenesis, which occurs when melanocytes produce too much melanin, resulting in the formation of age spots. They also reduce the level of free radicals in the skin, inhibit the enzyme elastase that breaks down elastin, which would contribute to the loss of skin elasticity and the accelerated formation of wrinkles.
The combination of all of the above components produced a one-of-a-kind product with a perfect synergy of ingredients that, not only restores the skin’s youthful appearance and glow by improving dermis thickness and density, skin hydration and texture, but also reduces the number and depth of wrinkles, and removes age spots.
The collagen pill formula deeply hydrates the skin and reduces oxidative damage.
