DMAE "Nature's Firming Agent"
DMAE has recently become a popular skin firming ingredient. As we age, muscle fibers under the skin lengthen and loosen. Skin sags and becomes thinner. To restore the youthful, firm appearance, cosmetic sugeons cut the fibers, physically lifting and shortening them.
DMAE may be a natural, gentler alternative. Recent studies have shown that DMAE produces similar astounding resutls and has demonstrated antioxidant activity. In one study, DMAE-enriched gel was tested agains a control gel lacking DMAE. Only the DMAE solution significantly increased tensile strength of the skin suggesting that topical application firms and reduces facial sag. Another study reported similar improvement in firmness and added that after 16 weeks, DMAE reduced fine lines and wrinkles.
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) "The Universal Antioxidant"
As the universal antioxidant, ALA is capable of protecting all portions of the skin's cellular structure and boosts the activity of all other antioxidants. What makes ALA special as an antioxidant is its versatility - it helps deactivate a dwide array of cell-damaging free radicals and recycles other antioxidants making them much more effective. In particualr, ALA helps protect the mitochondria and the genetic material, DNA. As we age, mitochondrial function is impared, and this contributes to the adverse effects of aging.
C-Ester "The Collagen Building Antioxidant"
Also known as ascorbyl palmitate, C-Ester is a fat-soluable form of ascorbic acid that exerts the antioxidant activity of vitamin C upon lipids in the skin. An effective antioxidant, it protects the skin cells from free radical damage, helps reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and helps support collagen and elastin health for firmer looking skin.
Suggested Use: Apply morning and evening after cleansing skin. May cause a slight tingling.
