Unique ingredients that we often know nothing about are commonly found in our skincare products and treatments. Where do they come from and what do they do? Here are 5 unique ingredients that have amazing benefits for your skin:
PDRN possesses therapeutic wound healing, tissue repair, and anti-inflammatory properties. It is also well known for its ability to stimulate cell growth and tissue regeneration. PDRN is harvested from salmon DNA, which is prized for its health benefits and is said to have several anti-ageing benefits, including skin reparation and rejuvenation.
Usually, PDRN is administered via facial injections, but our PDRN Skin Renewal Therapy is a non-invasive, injection-free treatment that is applied with unique jet spray technology. It is combined with Epicell Boosters to deliver the active constituents of micro-molecules deep into the skin through atomisation. This repairs and renews skin at a cellular level, achieving younger-looking skin.
Mined from the earth, Bentonite volcanic clay is made up of aged volcanic ash. It is packed with nutrients that help to draw toxins out of the body and is therefore used extensively in facial masks and in beauty products for skincare. Its healing properties are so powerful that it can even lighten tattoos!
As a key ingredient in our Cryo Clear Facial series, it helps to unclog and shrink pores, draw impurities from the skin, reduce the appearance of acne scars and evens out the skin tone. It is also great for oily skin as it controls the over-production of oil and sebum.
As we age, our bodies accumulate damage, impairing cell function, normal cell communication, protein stability and organ function. The goal of stem cell therapy is to help regenerate cells and hopefully reverse ageing and the dysfunctions that come with it.
Our EpiGlow Boosters with Stem Cell Therapy utilises stem cell cultures from Camellia Sinensis, a plant whose leaves and buds are used to produce antioxidant-rich teas; and Rosa Damascena, a special rose hybrid packed with healing rose oil. Blended with concentrated Ginseng extract, this potent botanical mixture effectively combats signs of ageing and pigmentation.
An ingredient that is derived from bearberry, Alpha Arbutin actively promotes skin lightening and works well on all skin types to even out skin tone, reducing the look of spots and hyperpigmentation. It is commonly found in lotions, creams and makeup products.
Alpha Arbutin is the key ingredient in our EpiGlow Boosters Brightening Therapy that is designed to brighten complexion and lighten pigmentation. This powerful brightening serum blocks the production of melanin and reverses harmful effects from prolonged sun exposure such as patches, freckles, as well as age spots.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally produced in our bodies and is largely found in our skin, connective tissue and eyes. Its main function is to retain water in the body’s tissue to maintain moisture and lubrication. When used on the surface of the skin, it deeply moisturises – reducing the appearance of wrinkles and speeding up skin cell repair.
Depending on its use, hyaluronic acid is available in varying molecular sizes. Low molecular weight hyaluronic acid is ideal for skincare as it is able to easily penetrate the skin and hydrate below the skin’s surface. It is found in our Vita Aqua Glow Facial, which dramatically hydrates the skin, repairs tissue and visibly provide a youthful radiant glow.
