After careful research, we've selected a unique blend of ingredients for our Face BOOST that are designed to significantly improve the appearance of skin.
One ingredient, Optim HyalTM, has been proven to have beneficial affects on the skin. It was developed to optimize the level of hyaluronic acid in the skin, which increases smoothness, moisture and suppleness.
Optim HyalTM contains GlycokinesTM, which sends signals to oligosaccharides that structurally and functionally mimic the hyaluronic fragments found in the skin. Studies of GlycokinesTM have been shown to stimulate the hyaluronic acid synthesis on both keratinocytes (an increase of 40 percent) and fibroblasts (an increase of 35 percent).
In a clinical test, this resulted in a visible improvement in skin smoothness (main wrinkle density was reduced between 46 and 96 percent) in just one month.
The information about the science behind Optim HyalTM comes from its manufacturer.
Another ingredient in our Face BOOST is vitamin C.
There is significant research that has proven the importance of the antioxidant properties of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) and its role in collagen synthesis in keeping skin healthy. In addition, studies have shown that vitamin C may help prevent and treat ultraviolet (UV)-induced photodamage.
Minerals, another incomponent of Face BOOST, are also critical to optimizing skin health. Each essential mineral plays a critical role in normal skin development and functioning.
- Minerals are found in the skin as key components of various enzymes and inside a special metal-binding protein called metallothionein.
- Mineral oxides are known to absorb and filter UVA and UVB rays, reducing the level that penetrates the skin.
- Minerals may also augment antioxidant defense mechanisms in the skin.
- Certain minerals may also enhance the skin healing process, a critical component of returning skin to a more youthful appearance.
