3% HORSE CHESTNUT EXTRACT (90% Escin): An extract from the seeds of the Horse Chestnut tree and standardized to a minimum of 90% escin. Escin is a mixture of saponins that are known to help maintain healthy blood circulation, strengthening the capillaries and veins. Evidence for the efficacy and safety of topical formulations of escin, have been performed in thirteen clinical studies in Europe. One clinical study evaluated the effects of an escin topical formulation on cellulite of the thighs and breast, concluding that it improved skin tissue microcirculation, increased blood flow at the capillary level and decrease edema and stasis. A topical formulation with a 3% Horse Chestnut Extract (90% Escin), a 2% Beta-sitosterol and a 2% Phosphatidylcholin, was found to be the most effective.
1.5% DMAE: 1.5% DMAE has an incredible firming affect on the skin. With age, the natural production of acetylcholine diminishes leaving muscles sagging, resulting in wrinkled skin. Reverse the process by increasing levels of acetylcholine with DMAE. Increased levels of acetylcholine produce stronger muscles and firmer skin. It works with in minutes and continues to firm the skin long term. DMAE is an all-natural nutritional supplement.
1.3% Olive Leaf Extract: Two extracts from the leaves of the olive tree. 1% Arjunolic Acid, standardized to 80%, is an antioxidant with anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. 0.3% Oleanolic Acid, standardized to 80%, is a skin conditioning agent that supports texture and integrity of the skin.
5% VITAMIN C ESTERS: Vitamin C, L-ascorbic acid, stimulates collagen production helping to minimize wrinkles. It is water-soluble, very acidic, irritating to the skin and breaks down rapidly because it is not stabilized. Vitamin C Esters are made of L-ascorbic acid joined with a fatty acid creating an ester bond. Vitamin C Esters stimulate collagen production plus it is fat-soluble, making it stable, non-acidic, completely nonirrating to the skin and offers maximum protection against free radicals at the precise spot that they do the most damage; the outside of the cell. Vitamin C Esters, ascorbyl palmitate, ascorbyl tetraispalmitate and dl-a-tocopheryl 2 L ascorbyl phosphate also achieve levels 10 times higher in the skin than just L-ascorbic acid. The dl-a-tocopheryl 2 L ascorbyl phosphate is a uniquely joined vitamin C with vitamin E and penetrates cell membrane so efficiently that it also gives anti-inflammatory benefits.
0.50% Tocotrienol (Vitamin E): Traditionally when vitamin E is added to a cosmetic, tocopherol is used.Vitamin E in the form “tocotrienol” is 40 times stronger and more effective at repairing skin damage. Tocotrienol may also be listed as High Potency E or “HPE”.
0.25% Retinol-A: It was discovered that vitamin A crème reduced wrinkles, pigment spots and helped to reverse the damage from UV rays. First there was tretinon (Retin-A brand) Then there was retinoic acid (Renova brand). Both by prescription only. Both having side effects of irritating the skin. Now there is retinol-A that gives the results without the harsh side effects and also non-prescription.
