Two essential proteins, collagen and elastin, determine your skin’s suppleness, yet ageing causes these structures to break down and become stiff and rigid; as a result, your skin becomes less supple and loses its bounce and snapback.
Peptides are clever molecules that inhibit glycation, reducing the deposition of cross-linked elastin and collagen molecules in your skin. Sallowness found in actinically-damaged skin results from glycated cross-linked yellow-brown proteins that we often associate with mature skin exposed to the sun.
Bee venom helps reduce this sallowness, increasing blood circulation to the deep layers of your skin and stimulating cellular regeneration and elastin production in the dermis to repair the structure of sagging skin.
Dimethylaminoethanol [DMAE] is an essential cell membrane component with a skin-lifting effect; several studies have shown it helps reduce lines and tighten sagging skin on the face and neck. One clinical study treated subjects with 3% DMAE cream and showed significant improvement in skin strength, making it ideal for skin prone to sagging.
Another clinical trial using 9% DMAE found it significantly increased collagen thickness in the dermis, an important finding as dermal thickness can decrease by 6% each decade of your life.
Honey from New Zealand’s native Manuka flowers is rich in nutrients, vitamins, amino acids, and minerals nourishing, protecting, and renewing. The ‘Manuka factor’ is one of the most bioactive extracts for your skin.
The result: an anti-ageing superstar that works to slow ageing by reducing fine lines and wrinkles, boosting collagen levels, so elasticity and firmness are enhanced, and your facial contours defined, for truly youthful, glowing, and lifted skin.
