MINUS 10 IS NATURALLY SCIENTIFIC
Consisting of vitamins, minerals and enzymes, antioxidants help prevent and repair damage to the skin by slowing or preventing free radical damage, an oxidation process that leads to cell and tissue dysfunction. If you’ve seen an apple turn brown, you’ve seen oxidation. Some natural sources of antioxidants include green tea, grapes, cloud berries, mangosteen, goji berries and zinc. Along with helping to fortify cells against free radicals, vitamins A and C also encourage cell and tissue growth which is important since skin is constantly sloughing and re-growing cells. From calming inflammation, firming and toning skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and scar tissue and helping to repair the appearance of sun damage, antioxidants offer great pro-youth benefits and support healthy-looking skin.
In cosmeceuticals, Retinol & Retinaldehyde derivatives, both forms of Vitamin A, are used primarily as anti-aging ingredients. Absorbed through the skin where they are converted to retinoic acid, they increase the rate of skin cell turnover and collagen production for a more youthful appearance. In addition, Rhonda Allison uses an encapsulated retinaldehyde for enhanced performance and optimum delivery, generating stellar anti‐ age benefits to the skin. With one less step for conversion in the skin, Retinaldehyde is the least irritating, making it great for all skin types – even sensitive skin.
It starts with amino acids. These are the building blocks of proteins and peptides. Considered “biomimetic” because they are inspired by nature and recognized by the body, yet designed in a lab, peptides are made up of a chain of at least two amino acids, linked together like pearls on a necklace. The arrangement of the “pearls” determines the function and desired biological activity of the particular peptide.
Structural/Cellular/Messenger Peptide – Stimulates the production of structural proteins or supporting structural proteins, improving the appearance of wrinkles.
Neuro Peptide – Inhibits the ability for neurons to transmit or receive information, reducing muscle contraction and improving the appearance of wrinkles.
Rejuvenating Peptide – Performs both the duties of a structural and neuro peptide or any other peptide that falls into an “other” category i.e. antioxidant, antiinflammatory, exfoliating, or healing. Peptides are designed for collagen stimulation, hyaluronic acid synthesis, inflammation reduction, freezing expression lines, brightening, firming, anti-cellulite, and the ultimate goal—wrinkle reduction and prevention.
STEM CELL TECHNOLOGY
Stem cell culture technology is a unique process which triggers a plant’s defensive responses against biological stresses. Since every plant cell has the ability to regenerate new organs (leaves, stem, flowers, and seeds), plant cells have the ability to “dedifferentiate” and become stem cells. If a plant is wounded, surrounding cells dedifferentiate, forming a wound-healing tissue, building up new tissue. Using natural plant stem cells to protect skin cells and trigger the rejuvenation of new skin cells delays the natural aging process by maintaining the activity of skin stem cells, thereby boosting the skin’s defense to oxidative stress and aiding in the prevention of aging skin. This action helps provide protection from UVA photo damage, prevent post-inflammatory spots and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines for healthier, more vibrant looking skin.
