Anti-Ageing Face Cream 75g
It is possible to help your skin remain young looking? The best methods do not involve creams that temporally plump out lines or creams that temporarily tighten the skin. In fact long term use of these creams may be detrimental. The best way to keep your skin looking young is to moisturise using creams high in anti-oxidants, maintain a healthy lifestyle without smoking, and to minimize sun exposure to healthy levels.
We believe moist, supple skin that is supplied with lots of anti-oxidants is much healthier than skin subjected to acids, temporary plumping agents and chemical line fillers. Our anti-ageing cream is designed to provide healthy ingredients to maintain youthful skin, not short term miracles that might cause damage longer term.
Our Anti-Ageing Cream takes a two step approach to anti-ageing:
- Provide the Oil Balance of Young Skin. Moist and supple skin resists forming lines. The main base of the cream is made from Olive Squalene. Squalene is one of the major components of the skin's own oil (sebum). After our early 20's, or skin starts producing less Squalene. Our Anti-Ageing Cream "tops" up the skin's Squalene to maintain the oil balance of young skin. This helps resists lines forming.
- Supply Anti-Oxidants to the Skin. Many would ask 'Why the fuss about anti-oxidants"?
One part of ageing is caused by "free radical damage". Free radicals are molecules that have become short of an electron. To become stable, free radicals seek out other molecules and can take an electron from them. This can cause cell damage leading to skin ageing, amongst other things. Supplying anti-oxidants to the skin helps mop up these freed radicals. The difficult part is to ensure that the ingredients get deep enough to function.
The star anti-oxidants for this cream are Resveratrol and Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate, both included at the maximum suggested percentage by the supplier. Each are some of most effective and expensive anti-ageing actives available. It is especially effective at preventing and reversing sun damage and results should be seen over the course of a month.
We cannot say too much here, so we encourage everyone to look at the peer-reviewed studies being done on Resveratrol and its protective effects. You can find these studies do by going to www.scholar.google.com and searching under "Resveratrol Skin". This way you have access to the latest science journal information, not the cosmetic companies hype. It can be difficult to understand, but basically it is an important new development for skin that has had sun exposure.
We use the highest quality micronised Resveratrol of 1um size for best absorption and almost 100% purity. We developed (after 6 months of failures) a unique system of ensuring that the concentration we needed stayed stable in the cream. The difficulty of this ingredient is that in good concentrations it tends to make creams unstable. Rather than reduce the concentration, we changed the way we incorporate it within the cream so that we have probably a higher concentration of Resveratrol than any other cream. You will notice this new cream a little thicker as Resveratrol arrives as a very fine powder.
Price. The ingredients for this cream are amoung the most expensive ingredients of any anti-ageing product sold at any price. We have seen creams with similiar quality ingredients retail for more than $250. This is because few consumers are cosmetic chemists, and so are not aware of what makes a good anti-ageing product, and must rely on price and advertising as the only indicator. If you have time to do some research, we believe you will find this to be one of the best possible anti-ageing formulas available, and without the chemicals normally used to fragrance, preserve and add a pleasant skin feel (silicone) in most commercial creams.
If you currently use anti-ageing treatments such as Alpha Hydroxy Acid, we strongly suggest not using any skin product in combination with these ingredients due to possible reactions with their acids, or contact the manufacturer of your product for more guidance.
