What is Collagen?
Collagen is absolutely vital to the body as it is the main structural protein in connective tissue.
Collagen is a protein that is mostly found in the skin and it is also abundantly found in bones, muscles, body tissues, tendons and cartilage.
Because of its fibrous nature, collagen supports and connects other body tissues and internal organs. Collagen is responsible for the soft texture, shape, elasticity and suppleness of the skin.
Collagen is greatly affected by different factors of the environment such as sunlight, wind, cold and pollution. Collagen levels within the body are also affected by the normal aging process.
The depletion of collagen in the body results in dry and wrinkled skin.
If Collagen levels are severely depleted then injections to help the skin regain its youthfulness can be used. However this is seen as perhaps a last resort and it is much better to use high quality, natural and organic skin care products to help keep collagen levels and to keep your skin young, supple and glowing.
Good levels of Collagen help increase skin smoothness, reduced facial wrinkles and lines and a younger-looking skin.
What’s so great about Argireline?
Argireline is derived from natural proteins and relaxes facial muscles thus reducing preventing wrinkles.
The theory guiding both products is that relaxed facial muscles will minimise existing wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle contractions, as well as preventing new wrinkles.
Muscle contractions are guided by a chemical reaction called the “SNAP receptor complex,” and Argireline is specifically designed to reduce with this reaction.
What is SYN®-COLL?
SYN®-COLL is based on a small peptide developed to reduce any type of wrinkles. Clinical trials have shown that SYN®-COLL is capable of reducing and changing the type and aspect of wrinkles that adds years to your appearance. Try it and you will see the difference within a short time.
The first signs of aging in the skin typically begin with superficial wrinkles. Therefore it is easily understandable that anti-wrinkle products play an important part as anti-aging products.
Over the last few years peptides have become an important part among the wrinkle reducing products.
SYN®-COLL is an aqueous, unpreserved, glycerine-based solution of a small peptide. It stimulates the collagen synthesis in human fibroblasts.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic Acid is a molecule belonging to the group of glycosaminoglycans.
A low concentration of Hyaluronic Acid is sufficient to form highly viscous solutions having
outstanding spreading and lubricant properties.
Owing to its high relative molecular mass, Hyaluronic Acid is not absorbed when applied to the skin. Instead, it forms a thin, invisible, transparent and elastic surface film. This film helps the skin retain surface moisture, particularly beneficial to facial areas.
The hyaluronic acid film helps to preserve the most important characteristics of youthful, healthy skin, such as suppleness, elasticity and tone. The hyaluronic acid film supports the natural protective mechanism of skin.
Since Hyaluronic Acid has good water-storing properties and is an ideal agent and lubricant, its incorporation into cosmetics leads to a perceptible and visible improvement of skin condition.
