Description

Description

4% BLUEBERRY EXTRACT

  • This particular extract in A.G.E. Interrupter is known for its potent anti-glycation activity
  • We currently have two patents pending with this specific ingredient, including one for anti-glycation and another for MMP inhibition
  • Four percent of the extract was the level found to be most effective in clinical trial

30% PROXYLANE™

  • This patented molecule is obtained from xylose produced from beech wood using an environmentally friendly, chemically simple and optimized synthesis process that characterizes this molecule as a “green chemistry product”
  • Proxylane™ acts like a molecular magnet attracting GAG components to reconnect and rebuild the network of fibers, proteins, and cells in the D.E.J
  • Stimulates the synthesis of procollagen I and III by fibroblasts
  • Considerably improves cohesion between the dermis and epidermis by increasing the number of anchoring filaments in the D.E.J. and rebuilding D.E.J. structure
  • Increases expression of a hyaluronic acid receptor in the epidermis
  • Proxylane™ is easily biodegradable, non-bioaccumulatable, and non-eco-toxic

1. Prevents the rigidification of collagen and elastin fibers (cross-linking of collagen: AGE’s)
2. Exhibits a pro-matrix effect – stimulating synthesis of procollagen I and III
3. Remodels tissue structure in the dermal epidermal junction (D.E.J.) and increases elasticity and thickness — as if the skin’s mattress has been re-inflated from the inside
4. Increases bound moisture in the epidermis
5. Rich, moisturizing base hydrates thin, dry, cracking skin
6. Helps to alleviate the discomfort associated with dry, aging skin

Intrinsic aging, caused by internal factors such as hormonal shifts and metabolic slowdown, contributes greatly to skin sagging, creping, thinning, and cracking. While glucose is a vital cellular fuel, as we age and our metabolism slows, glycation causes excess glucose molecules to stick to collagen and elastin, leading to cross-linked fibers. This cross-linking forms chemical bridges between these proteins that result in advanced glycation end-products (A.G.E.). Glycated fibers become rigid, less elastic, and have reduced regenerative ability, which leads to damage such as laxity, cracking, and thinning skin. Another major contributor of intrinsic skin aging is the flattening of the dermal epidermal junction (D.E.J.). In young skin, the D.E.J. has the appearance of a mountain range that helps anchor the epidermis to the dermis, forming a network of supportive collagen fibers. As skin ages, fibers in the D.E.J., that are primarily responsible for the appearance and texture of skin. In addition, glycosaminoglycans (GAGs),  the essential molecules responsible for holding water, nutrients and modulating the extra-cellular space in the D.E.J., break down. Both glycation and GAG depletion lead to the degradation of the extra-cellular matrix and the flattening of the D.E.J., resulting in sagging, creping, and severely wrinkled skin.

    I started using this at night about 2 months ago and can definitely feel the difference, smoother plumper skin, worth the investment!

    This formula is thicker and richer than the daily moisture and as such I tend to use mine as a night cream.
    The tiniest amount (three tiny dabs, one on each cheek and one on my forehead) covers my entire face and if I use more it won’t absorb.
    When used correctly it spreads alot and leaves skin silky soft
    I have seen a marked improvement in my skin since using this, esp the tiny lines around my eyes and the fine lines caused by dehydration have disappeared.
    Even with my acne prone skin when used as a night product once a day this product does not break me out
