Mature skin is weak, dry, shows elasticity loss and the first signs of biological skin ageing. Its moisture and lipid levels are off balance. When skin’s resilience diminishes, fine lines and wrinkles develop, which contrary to dryness lines, must not be countered with moisture, but rather with the right mix of conditioning oils, regenerating extracts and peptides which stimulate the skin-cell renewal. So that skin-ageing signs have no chance!
Stress, unbalanced nutrition and the wrong care have a negative effect. Also excessive exposure to UV radiation contributes to a premature skin ageing.
EFFECTIVE INGREDIENTS FOR MATURE SKIN
1) VITAMINS + ANTI-OXIDANTS & RETINOL
Retinol (vitamin A) is effective against more than hundred skin problems and a real all-rounder for skin!
A) VITAMIN C
Vitamin C stimulates the metabolism of the connective tissue and the collagen-synthetizing enzymes, at the same time it inhibits the degradation of collagen.
B) VITAMIN E
Vitamin E has an anti-oxidative effect, it binds moisture in the Stratum Corneum and diminishes skin damages caused by UV radiation. It has a noticeable smoothing effect on the skin relief.
1) AHA ALPHA HYDROXY ACID / GLYCOLIC ACID + LACTIC ACID
AHA Alpha Hydroxy Acid / glycolic acid and lactic acid have larger molecules which are not able to penetrate that deep into skin. Dead skin flakes are removed, the skin-cell renewal is stimulated.
2) PHA POLY HYDROXY ACID / LACTOBIONIC ACID
PHA Poly Hydroxy Acid / lactobionic acid is a saccharic acid (disaccharidw consisting of gluconic acid and galactose) belong to the new generation of acids. It acts like AHA, but is less skin-irritating. Counters oxidative processes.
3) BHA- BETA HYDROXY ACID / SALICYLIC ACID
BHA- Beta Hydroxy Acid / salicylic acid säure is fat-soluble. Beta Hydroxy Acid is well suited for oily skin, combination skin and skin tending to impurities. BHA has an anti-inflammatory and light anti-bacterial effect.
4) FERULIC ACID (HYDROXY CINNAMIC ACID
Ferulic acid (hydroxy cinnamic acid) has an anti-oxidative, anti-inflammatory effect and protects against UV radiation. It repairs UV-induced age spots and skin damages. Fine lines and wrinkles are diminished.
