Active Components of Elegance Purelift Anti-Wrinkle Cream
Retinol is a proven remedy for treating the symptoms of skin aging. Retinol or Vitamin A significantly accelerates skin renewal causing a visible reduction in wrinkles.
Retinol is a powerful antioxidant in the battle against harmful free radicals. It helps prevent the appearance of wrinkles and increases the skin’s collagen production. Research shows that skin greatly benefits from using retinol, if you want to retain that youthful radiance well into the future. Its active ingredient is also very effective in the treatment of acne and eczema, minimising skin discolouration and making wrinkles caused by UV radiation less deep.
Retinol is a derivative of vitamin A and also occurs naturally in the skin. It supports cell regeneration deep in the epidermis. This is why retinol is a powerful ingredient for the intensive treatment of wrinkles.
Coenzyme Q10 is a substance that occurs naturally in all cells. Levels of Coenzyme Q10 start to drop as we age, but also because of other negative influences such as stress, bad nutrition and regularly exposing the skin to the sun.
Coenzyme Q10 supports the functioning of Vitamin E, part of the fight against skin aging. Both Vitamin E and Coenzyme Q10 are fat soluble antioxidants. Sun or harmful substances in the air cause free radicals to appear in the skin. The antioxidants Coenzyme Q10 and Vitamin E cooperate closely to absorb these.
Coenzyme Q10 halts the breakdown of the collagen that is responsible for the tautness of the skin. Coenzyme Q10 encourages the production of hyaluronic acid, the natural material in connective tissue, and produces a tighter, healthier skin.
Matrixyl has an intensive effect on wrinkles. It stimulates the skin to regulate its own hydration and to improve the elasticity of the skin. The structure of the skin becomes firmer and increases in volume. Irregularities and wrinkles are filled from the inside out and become visibly finer.
Matrixyl is one of the most researched ingredients in the battle against skin aging. It is a peptide that stimulates the production of collagen. At the same time it stimulates the production of elastin, causing the skin to become thicker and firmer. Fine lines and wrinkles are reduced and the skin starts to glow again.
As our skin ages the body’s own production of collagen diminishes. This is unfortunate as it is collagen that gives skin its firmness. Starting at around 25 the production of the body’s own collagen drops at an average of 1,5% a year. Air pollution, smoking and drinking alcohol can also seriously inhibit the levels of collagen in our skin.
Marine collagen is the solution to this problem. This form of collagen is identical to human collagen. It is soluble and 100% absorbable by the human skin.
Collagen gives the skin its natural firmness, elasticity and resilience. If we are able to raise our collagen levels to those of when we were young, our skin regains its elasticity, firmness and youthful radiance. In doing so lines and wrinkles are filled and the appearance of new wrinkles is prevented.
Scientific studies regarding the effectiveness of marine collagen show that is highly capable of arresting skin aging. This is because marine collagen consists largely of Type III collagen. We possess ample supplies of this type of collagen when we are young, giving our skin its flexibility, firmness and elasticity. As we age Type III collagen is broken down and the much tougher Type I collagen emerges. These changes cause the appearance of more and more fine lines and wrinkles. Marine collagen supplements the body’s own collagen, but it also stimulates its natural production, and by doing so the regeneration process of the skin.
Marine collagen also naturally contains DMAE (dimethylaminoethanol). DMAE prevents the knotting of proteins, promotes the growth of new skin cells and thereby protects the healthy skin cells and tissues. DMAE provides more strength resulting in fewer lines and wrinkles. DMAE became popular through the revolutionary work of Dr Nicholas Perricone.
What Doesn’t Elegance Purelift Anti-Wrinkle Cream Contain?
Did you know that many cheaper, but also some quite expensive day and night creams contain ingredients that are not only of no use to the skin, but can actually harm it? Many more affordable creams contain mineral oils because they are cheap. These do however clog the pores and eventually cause dependence (your skin dries out faster when you stop using mineral oil) and accelerate the aging of your skin. Harmful alcohols such as ethanol, ethyl alcohol and methanol are still often present in skin creams.
These kinds of alcohol dry out, irritate and strip the skin of its natural protective acid mantle. On top of that parabens are often used as a preservative. Use of parabens can, however, lead to allergies, damage to your DNA and accelerated skin aging.
That is why during the development of Elegance Purelift not only what should be in an excellent anti-wrinkle cream was taken into consideration, but also what most definitely should not!
And even the packaging makes a big difference!
No, the glitzy box the jar of cream is packed in is not important, but the jar itself is! Many luxurious creams are packaged in elegant-looking jars because the marketing department knows this is how to sell them. And besides, they are cheaper to produce. What they decline to tell you is that a jar is actually the worst possible packaging when it comes to the functioning of the cream.
Having cream in jars in unhygienic, and the active ingredients oxidise under the influence of oxygen so that after a few weeks they have completely evaporated. Antioxidants (as the name suggests) react to oxygen. Good creams with a high concentration of antioxidants will therefore never be found in a jar! A tube is better, but an air-tight pump is the best when it comes to maintaining the quality of your cream.
That is why Elegance PureLift has been packaged in an airtight bottle with a 100% hygienic pumping device.
