- Key Ingredients
After cleansing and Skin Conditioner Enzyme Toner application, pump a few drops of Enzyme Concentrate Vitamin Protein Complex into the palm of your hands. Apply over entire face, neck and décolleté. Initially, the Enzyme Concentrate Vitamin Protein Complex should only be used once or twice per week, morning or night. Gradually increase the frequency of the application to 4-7 times per week. Follow with Gel Plus Enzyme Protein Gel, moisturizer and sunscreen.
Collagen Amino Acids | Similar properties to collagen, but is a more potent moisture-binding compound. Primarily made up of Proline and Hydroxyproline (amino acids necessary for collagen production), this ingredient contains nearly all “essential” amino acids and can influence the growth of fibroblasts.
Hydrolyzed Elastin | Elastin is a protein in connective tissue that provides elasticity to cells and tissue; its hydrolyzation makes its use easier in skin care product as it helps with proper penetration and absorption. Its use increases elasticity of skin cells thus reducing the appearance of wrinkles. In this formulation the Elastin also works together with the Collagen Amino Acids to deliver the Vitamin B complexes into the skin and maintain the skin’s natural elasticity.
Crocus Chrysanthus Bulb Extract | This clinically proven extract triggers the proper cellular communication needed to correct and enhance collagen and elastin production within the dermis, resulting in improved skin firmness and reduced wrinkles.
Niacin | (Vitamin B3) A multi-tasking nutrient that contributes to reversing DNA damage and rewiring the cellular makeup to create “healthy” cells. Niacin helps to increase cell turnover and strengthen the skin barrier by boosting hydration and ceramides (skin lipids that retain moisture).
Biotin | (Vitamin B7) Part of the B vitamin complexes, Biotin performs a variety of necessary functions including assisting in the production of essential fatty acids and amino acids, and encouraging cell growth.
Riboflavin | (Vitamin B2) This micro-nutrient is easily absorbed and plays a vital roll in cellular metabolism and ATP production.
Panthenol | (Vitamin B5) A non-comedogenic, penetrating moisturizer that aids in tissue repair and wound healing, stimulates cell proliferation, as well as soothes and protects skin from sun burns.
