Lipobelle Glacier is based on pure Swiss glacier water encapsulated into liposomes. Lipobelle Glacier water comes from one of the highest sources of mineral water in Europe. It is impounded at a height of 1800 m guaranteeing its purity and freshness.The encapsulation of Lipobelle Glacier into liposomes enhances its penetration into skin resulting in a deep and long-lasting hydration. Moreover, phospholipids which form liposomes improve the skin’s smoothness,moisture balance and suppleness. Lipobelle Glacier was shown to protect skin cells against heat stress in vitro. In vivo, a long-lasting moisturizing effect could be obtained by a single application. Besides, due to its natural and water nature, it is especially suitable for hydration needs of sensitive skin.
Hyaluronic acid is a mucopolysacharide that exists naturally in all living organisms, usually around connective tissue, synovial membrane, eye vitreous humor, and in the dermis. Scientic researches indicate that hyaluronic acid loss can be the cause for wrinkles formation and dull skins. It is an ideal natural moisturizing factor (NMF), because its water absorption ability and large molecular structure allow the epidermis to achieve greater suppleness and elasticity. As the protein can hold water up to 500 - 1000 times its own weight, it is known to play a vital part in slowing down the aging process, caused by the depletion of water level in skin. Maintaining high levels of hyaluronic acid is said to reduce wrinkles caused by dehyradtion and general aging, by retaining water and giving immediate smoothness to rough skin surfaces. This significantly improves skin appearance..
Wonderlight is formulated from extraction of the plant Humulus Lupulus (Hops). It has been clinically proven in decreasing hyperpigmentation situation accentuated by age and stress: lentigines, ephelides, postinflammatory spots and melasma. Wonderlight interacts with both keratinocytes and melanocytes by blocking gene transcription involved in the melanin synthesis. The inflammatory cytokine GM-CSF produced by keratinocytes is inhibited. Clinicaly studies have demonstrated that Wonderlight can markedly improve skin luminosity and reduce skin pigmentation after continuous use of 28 days, especially on type III / IV Asian skins.
Linefactor™ C is an aqueous extract made from Hibiscus abelmoschus. Its major action is to increase protection to the vulenerable yet important Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF-2). FGF-2 is critical in our skin's process of forming of big modules like collagen peptides. It is more effective than Vitamin C in redensifiying the dermis, giving it a supple and firming look, helping to smooth out deep skin creases and increase the skin elasitcity. Besides, it stimulates the synthesis of Aquaporine-3 which allows the skin to recover the barrier function. This product is suitable for mature skin, with clinically proven efficacy in densifying face and rejuvenating skin.
Compared with white grapes, red grapes which has resveratrol are very rarely affected by grape moulds. Viniderm® is a grape juice extract from Languedoc-Roussillon, rich in polyphenois, enriched in a rare polyherol: the o-viniferin. This one is obtained by enzymatic bioconversation from resveratrol. This process is inspired by a reaction existing in the natural state, catalysed by a mushroom, Botrytis Cinerea. Its diversity in antioxidant polyphenols, allows this product to have an anti-aging preservative action by protecting the essential constituents of the skin such as the mitochondrial DNA, the stem cell niche, and the extra-cellular matrix. It has been demonstrated clinically, substantial reduction in visiable wrinkles are observed after using 3% Viniderm Essence for 56 days.
Eyeliss™ is an ingredient manufactured in France that targets puffiness and under eye bags. Eyeliss™ contains three potent ingredients – a plant-based extract that helps reduce puffiness by reducing fluid buildup beneath the eyes, teamed with two natural peptides that work together combating dark circles while boosting skin's elasticity, both of which help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, creating a more youthful look. Eyeliss™ also helps reduce dark circles beneath the eyes by strengthening the capillaries there, since dark circles are often the result of leaking blood vessels, which lose blood that then pools beneath the eyes, causing not only dark circles, but also extra puffiness. The trio of powerful ingredients also works in synergy to support circulation beneath the eyes, bringing more oxygen to the skin cells there, resulting in improved texture. Because it is packed with the antioxidants, Eyeliss™ also helps fight free radicals, which are especially damaging to the skin beneath the eyes. With the loss of collagen and elastin, wrinkles and fine lines can become more prominent, but Eyeliss™ helps support the elasticity of the skin beneath and around the eyes by maintaining collagen and elastin and encouraging new production, helping to keep fine lines and wrinkles at bay.
Argireline, also known as Acetyl heyxapeptide-3, is a peptide patented by the Barcelona-based research laboratory Lipotec. ARGIRELINE® peptide solution is the first anti-wrinkle hexapeptide with a Botulinum Toxin-like mechanism of action. It has the effect of Botox but without the risk of direct injection. It reduces the depth of the wrinkles on the face caused by the contraction of muscles of facial expression, especially in the forehead and around the eyes. ARGIRELINE® is a safer, cheaper, and milder alternative to Botulinum Toxin, topically targeting the same wrinkle-formation mechanism in a very different way. Clinical studies have demonstrated that Argireline solution reduced the depth of wrinkles up to 17% after 15 days and 27% following 30 days of treatment.
Our skin colour is determined by the interaction of different colorants. The brown/black coloration is the result of the formation of melanin produced by special epidermal cells, the melanocytes. The process of melanin production depends upon the activation of an enzyme called tyrosinase which are usually activated by UV light or other factors which finally lead to formation of melanins. Alpha-Arbutin is a pure, water soluble, biosynthetic active ingredient that effeciently blocks actions of tyrosinase which in turn inhibits the formation of melanin and thus skin darkening. It promotes skin lightening that are faster and more efficiently than existing single components, minimizes liver spots and reduces the degree of skin tanning after UV exposure
