Biogenix Stemcell-C Retinol 3 Complex is a scientifically advanced, multi-active emulsion that targets the five primary causes of visible aging – texture, elasticity, fine lines, lack of radiance and uneven tone. Biogenix’s exclusive Tetra-RetinolTM 1.0 Complex utilizes a high level of micro-encapsulated Retinol in combination with three forms of vitamin A in a time-released delivery system that dramatically improves the look of fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, rough texture and skin imperfections. Biogenix Stemcell-C Retinol 3 Complex contains the core patented Swiss stem cell extract from the medicinal herb comfrey proven to accelerate the skin’s natural cellular renewal process. The addition of Biogenix’s exclusive Dermagene 6TM — a potent complex of peptides and amino acids — targets wrinkle formation and diminishes their appearance. Comprehensive blends of vitamin E, along with two powerful forms of vitamin C, help stimulate collagen synthesis and provide deep anti-oxidant protection. These ingredients work in synergy to help visibly smooth the look of wrinkles, refine texture, improve skin tone and visibly restore overall radiance for a more youthful appearance.
1.0% Retinol 3 Complex:
Micro-Encapsulated Retinol is a patented technology which improves the bio-availability and the penetration efficacy of the retinol. The multi-layered microspheres are structured like an onion, as the pure retinol stays between each layer and it is made available when the layer ‘peels off’ upon delivery into the skin – prolonging its action time. Once released, the retinol is converted into retinoic acid, the biologically active form of vitamin A, proven to stimulate cell growth, increase enzyme activity and normalize cell division. Two randomized, controlled trials reported dramatic improvement in fine lines and wrinkles after 12 and 24 weeks of treatment, respectively.
Retinyl Propionate is a milder, more tolerable retinoid than tretinoin and retinol that is clinically effective in the improvement of fine lines and wrinkles as well as overall skin tone. It converts to tretinoic acid in the skin cells and offers benefits similar to that of tretinoin (Retin-A) without the heightened skin irritation and sensitivity that sometimes occurs.
Retinyl Palmitate is micro-encapsulated in cyclodextrins, protecting it to provide potentiation of its efficiency and controlling its release. The antioxidant reacts with enzymes in the skin, which is then converted to retinol, and ultimately to retinoic acid (the active form of vitamin A). Therefore it is able to counteract the skin-aging process and improve the appearance of UV-damaged skin.
0.5% Swiss Phyto Stem Cell is a revolutionary stem cell active from the medicinal herb comfrey, known as Symphytuym Officinale Root Cell Extract. Proteins from this phyto stem cell recharge the youthfulness of skin stem cells, boosting cell turnover to both fortify and plump skin in as little as four weeks.2% Dermagene-6 is a proprietary complex of amino acids that features the active ingredient Matrixyl Synthe’6TM — Palmitoyl Tripeptide-38, an innovative cell-communicating ingredient blend that smoothes wrinkles from the inside by rebuilding the skin where it is needed, particularly on the forehead and crow’s feet. This ingredient is known to significantly increase the synthesis of six major constituents of the skin matrix including the dermal-epidermal junction.
Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate is a modified, lipid-soluble form of vitamin C able to penetrate the epidermis 16 times more effectively than ascorbic acid, thus reaching the dermis where it stimulates collagen production. Unlike ascorbic acid, it will not exfoliate or irritate skin and requires a low concentration use due to its skin penetrating capabilities.
3-O Ethyl Ascorbic Acid is a powerful new antioxidant-rich form of pure vitamin C clinically proven to brighten skin tone, inhibit inflammation of the skin, and stimulate collagen synthesis to improve overall skin elasticity. It is highly stable allowing it to deliver the maximum dose of vitamin C to the skin.
Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate is an active stable vitamin C ingredient. Upon contact with the skin, it liberates the free-form of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) into the skin protecting cells from free radical damage. It promotes collagen formation, while helping to control the formation of solar keratosis — a common skin condition resulting from long-term UV sun damage.
Tocopheryl Acetate is an oil-soluble form of the vitamin E antioxidant to soften the skin and treat dryness by helping skin retain natural moisture levels and prevent cell lipid oxidation.
Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil is a precious oil derived from the Argan Fruit rich in linoleic acids, flavonoids and natural tocopherols that are nourishing, regenerating and protective. It spreads easily and penetrates rapidly without giving an oily or shiny effect, leaving an extraordinary softness to the skin, while reinforcing skin suppleness and elasticity. The naturally-occurring antioxidants help to neutralize free radicals, while preventing skin inflammation and dryness.Benefits
