DNA is the antidote to anti-ageing and impaired barrier function. It has a multi-faceted approach that rejuvenates your skin, regenerating skin cells and rebuilding a thin, fragile skin resulting from a damaged barrier whilst combatting chronological ageing, preserving your skin’s youthful look and vitality.
The correct pH balance is critical for your skin’s health. A protective film known as the acid mantle inhibits the growth of foreign bacteria, rendering it less vulnerable to attack from irritants. Balanced skin is somewhat acidic – falling between pH 4.2 and 5.6 – but when out of balance, the barrier function becomes impaired, leaving your skin prone to ageing, breakouts, infection, and inflammation.
Copper peptides, ions, and peptide proteins are found within your skin, but these molecules are used and not replaced with age, so topical replenishment is vital. These essential molecules keep pH levels within the acidic range and play a role in your skin’s inflammatory response, helping to maintain your skin’s health. They also increase collagen synthesis, regulate natural copper levels and activate fibroblasts, encouraging adult skin cells to perform similarly to youthful skin.
The combination of powerful humectants boosts collagen and elastin production, so your skin is plump, and fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed. Your skin’s natural stores of Hyaluronic acid are elevated, so your skin is left deeply hydrated, soft to the touch, and more youthful-looking.
Studies: Leyden et al. carried out a 12-week study on the face cream containing GHK-Cu – a significant improvement in skin laxity, reduced lines, increased skin density, and wrinkle depth.
