Packed with all the essential nutrients and active ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, DMAE, vitamin A, B, C & E, CoQ10, Niacinimide and alpha lipoic acid, along with multifruits and the wonder oil meadowfoam. Concentration level of hyaluronic acid in the Supreme Facial Serum is 100 times more concentrated than the majority of 1% hyaluronic acid products on the market.
Hyaluronic acid was discovered by Karl Meyer in 1934 and has been successfully used in personal care and wound healing. Until the 1990’s, the only method of producing hyaluronic acid was extracting it from rooster combs. Currently, there are two forms of hyaloronic acid on the market: one from rooster combs and the other by fermentation in the lab. We only use the vegan-approved version that originates from the lab. In nature, hyaluronic acid is also found in the extracellular matrix of human tissue. Topically applied hyaluronic acid forms an air-permeable layer and penetrates into the dermis, thus boosting the elasticity and hydration of the skin. The protective breathable barrier on the skin locks in moisture, which gives the skin a youthful appearance. The cuticular layer of the skin normally contains 10-20% water. As we age, however, it can drop to below 10%. Hyaluronic acid comes to the rescue with its unique ability to hold more than 1000 ml of water per gram of hyaluronic acid, which is a key factor in allowing the skin to retain more water. Amazingly, hyaluronic acid adjusts its moisture absorption level based on the relative humidity in the air. It’s the ideal ingredient in skin care products, as it adjusts to the skin’s need for a moisturizing effect depending on the relative humidity of seasons and climate of an area. Hyaluronic acid also protects the epidermis by scavenging reactive oxygen species generated by ultra-violet light that would normally cause sunspots.
Niacinamide is the biologically active form of niacin, Vitamin B3. Niacinamide increases the rate of skin exfoliation and increases moisture barrier repair. Studies have shown it to be useful in increasing synthesis of collagen and lipids, inhibiting the transfer of melanosomes and decreasing inflammation. Niacinamide is an amazing antioxidant that works for aging and acne related issues.
Pro-Vitamin B5 (dl-Panthenol) is a humectant effective at counteracting the dryness that occurs in aging skin and increasing the moisture retention capacity of the skin, which allows dry skin to stay supple and elastic longer. It is anti-inflammatory and stimulates skin regeneration. Niacinamide and panthenol improve the condition of the skin’s moisture barrier, a function considered by dermatologists as critical to healthy skin.
