Day cream with Stem Cells from Grapes and Grape Seed Oil. It is an effective antioxidant against free radicals. The presence of Cyclodextrins gives a visible lifting effect ensuring, at the same time, a soft, long lasting moisturized skin.
STEM CELLS FROM GRAPES
These are undifferentiated cells that can develop into any of the cells which make up the entire plant. In vitro studies show that these stem cells counteract free radicals even when placed in a cosmetic formulation, giving it antioxidant properties. In vivo tests have shown that the antiradical qualities detected in the hydrolipidic film of treated skin is very high and extremely stable even six hours after the application.
GRAPE SEED OIL
Grape seed oil, obtained by the process of cold pressing, is extracted from grape seeds without any use of chemical solvents. It has an extraordinary antioxidant effect due to the richness of proanthocyanidins, a family of natural polyphenols. Many researchers consider them the most interesting natural antioxidants, even 15-30 times more effective than vitamin E. The grape seeds are rich in calcium, phosphorus and flavonoids – which have a moisturizing, soothing and antioxidant role – and organic acids ( malic, tartaric, glycolic acid ) which have high light-enhancing properties. Grape seed oil, massaged directly onto the skin or contained in cosmetic products, has an effective toning action and simulates capillary microcirculation. Strong antioxidant action helps to keep the skin supple and radiant, slows down the formation of wrinkles and reduces signs of aging.
When applied to the skin they perform a very determined and persistent lifting action.
They are completely herbal and biotechnological and have film-forming and moisturizing properties. They are the ideal replacement for various animal products with strong lifting effect. Their presence in the formula guarantees an increase in the bioavailability of all active principles contained in the cosmetic and of their lasting effect.
Cyclodextrins are an exceptional vehicle because they can encase different active substances, protecting them from oxidation and degradation thus making them more resistant to temperature changes in the various skin layers.
The active substances, thus well preserved, remain most effective. They are also better absorbed thanks to a further property of Cyclodextrins which release them in a gradual and controlled way.
PALMITOYL PENTAPEPTIDE – 4
The small peptide derived from biotechnology is very effective in the stimulation of fibroblasts. It boosts the production of collagen and glycosaminoglycans and prevents the formation of wrinkles. In vitro, in ex vivo and in vivo studies have demonstrated its effectiveness in the significant reduction in the depth, volume and distribution of both deep and light wrinkles and in improving the elasticity of skin tone.
It is an active ingredient which has been isolated biotechnologically from a strain of special yeast called Saccharomyces Cervisiae. It is rich in vitamin B1 or thiamine and promotes the processes of tissue trophism.
It has stimulating and protective properties. It has demonstrated the ability to activate tissue regeneration through a significant increase of cellular respiration and oxygenation.
It enhances the immune response of the cells and the defence from oxidation, increasing the regenerative power of the cells.
It is the most prized vegetable butter and it is extracted from the seeds of Butyrospermum Parkii, a plant growing in the inland areas of West Africa.
It is exceptional for toning, firming and nourishing the skin.
Apply it in the morning on face ( preferably apply it after Antioxidant Intensive Eye Contour Cream ), neck and bust area. Massage gently until completely absorbed.
