The main active components are: bark extract Peruvian liana, uncaria tomentosa, artemia salina extract, vegetal ceramides, vitamin complex, mint extract, rosemary extract, papain, panthenol.
The basic active ingredients are uncaria tomentosa (Peruvian liana) extract and artemia salina (plankton) extract. These unique ingredients provide a powerful effect on the skin!
The uncaria tomentosa (“cat’s claw”) extract is a recent discovery in cosmetology. This herbal ingredient has the most powerful immune-stimulating properties and acts on a cellular level. This active ingredient is effectively used in cosmetic products due to its very small molecular size. It deeply penetrates into the skin. The extract affects a fibroblast, which is the most important skin cell.
Fibroblasts are the cells of connective tissue that synthesize the extracellular matrix. They produce elastin, collagen, hyaluronic acid; they also influence the growth and renewal of other dermis components. They are the dermis cells (deep skin layer) that are in a period of a rapid growth. With time, the number of fibroblasts decreases, which affects the skin.
The uncaria tomentosa extract affects the fibroblasts and stimulates the growth of the main matrix cells that results in the skin rejuvenation. It also works as an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory agent, analgesic, immunomodulatory and cancer-protective agent. It provides general detoxification and anti-allergic effect.
Artemia salina plankton extract was discovered by the ISP Global Skin Research Center in France. The GP4G molecule has unique properties, protects the DNA of the skin cells, prevents the skin’s aging and protects it from the UV negative impact. The GP4G molecule acts as a basis for the synthesis of ATP, demonstrating a powerful energy potential, and also speeding up the metabolic processes.
ATP is the vital energy basis of all cellular reactions. With the energy of ATP, the cell synthesizes new molecules of protein, carbohydrates, fat, gets rid of waste, actively transports the substances etc.
The GP4G stimulates the filaggrin and creatine production, improving the barrier function. Its effect on fibronectin and collagen protein production has been proven effective. It positively affects the extracellular matrix. The further studies confirmed that the extract improves the skin cells resistance to the UV radiation and temperature stresses.
The vegetable ceramides are important for the proper and healthy skin structure. They are responsible for:
- firmness and protection of the skin
- barrier function repair
- water exchange
- intensive moisturizing
The vitamin complex improves the intercellular substance synthesis, skin regeneration and cell renewal.
The peppermint extract cleans the tissues, increases the blood microcirculation and stimulates the skin’s protective function.
The rosemary protects against the radiation impacts, contributes to the melanin production and maintains the skin’s youthfulness.
The papain stimulates the epidermis regeneration by removing dead cells. It even the skin relief. Being a zymoprotein, it impacts the skin’s enzymes activity and positively affects some biochemical processes. It also effectively treats hyperkeratosis – a thickened stratum corneum of the epidermis with wide pores.
The panthenol is an effective regenerating product.
