Firm and healthy skin around the eyes is a must. Finding the right balance in a product for the eye area is critical. Not too heavy, not too light, absorbs easily but also leaves a layer of protection. It is also important to have active ingredients at a high percentage yet not so much that the eye area becomes irritated or inflamed.
This product contains cutting edge peptides like Matrixyl 3000 and Tripeptide-5 with an ocean based Retinol, dozens of botanical actives, pure plant oils, and organic vitamins and minerals. The combined effect is one of powerful and deep cellular rejuvenation, collagen boosting, wrinkle repairing, and inflammation reducing activity for your fragile and vulnerable eye area.
Matrixyl significantly boosts collagen, says independent research. A new study has confirmed that Matrixyl® 3000 is even more efficient for anti-aging. These new findings confirm that it can reverse photo-aging by repairing UV damage. It achieves this effect by repairing the papillary dermis which is located between the inner (dermis) and outer (epidermis) layers of skin. Human studies using Matrixyl® 3000 show that one month’s use of such a product can reverse the signs of aging by 1.8 years and aging is delayed by 5.5 years after just 2 month’s use.
Matrixyl 3000 contains two matrikines, Pal-GHK and Pal-GQPR which act in synergy to restore and maintain skin's youthful appearance. These ingredients act as messengers of cutaneous restructuration and repair. They activate the neosynthesis of extracellular matrix macromecules providing Matrixyl 3000 with a visible anti-wrinkle efficacy. As messenger molecules, matrikines are capable of regulating cell activities. They interact with specific receptors to activate certain genes involved in the process of extracellular matrix renewal and cell proliferation. With age these mechanisms become progressively weaker.
In clinical studies Tripeptide-5 showed statistically significant improvements and provided both immediate and long-term improvements in the appearance of fine and coarse wrinkles.
Aloe Vera Juice
Often called “The Miracle Plant”, promotes new skin growth, moisturizes, protects and counters the effects of aging, soothing, emollient, anti-bacterial, heals skin irritations, burns and wounds. Aloe Vera improves hydration and is soothing and healing to all skin types. The effectiveness of Aloe Vera gel as a cosmetic skin care and pharmaceutical product is indisputable. It has also been shown to have an invigorating effect on skin when applied on a regular basis. Chemical analysis has shown the presence of mucopolysacharides, a natural moisturizing factor. Aloe Vera is composed of water, the enzymes catalase and cellulose, minerals, calcium, aluminum, iron, zinc, magnesium, sodium, 20 amino acids and carbohydrates. Aloe Vera also contains the "youth mineral" potassium.
Evening primrose oil
Anti aging properties, helps to reduce and lessen the signs of aging decreases fine lines and wrinkles, helps to smooth rough skin, aids in repairing the skin and helps skin elasticity.
One of the most exciting ingredients on the market today. 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 hyaluronic acid on the market; one from rooster combs and the other by fermentation in the lab. JES Organics only carries the vegan approved lab created version. Hyaluronic acid is naturally 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, however as we age 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 based on the relative humidity in the air. It is 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 which would normally cause sunspots.
Wonderful natural moisturizer similar to human sebum so it is accepted very well by the skin. It aids in the healing process.
Natural skin protector, natural emollient, helps keep skin smooth and soft, improves skin moisture by offsetting dryness caused by aging and environmental factors. Acts as a free radical scavenger, hinders the oxidizing process in the skin and promotes soft and supple skin. As an antioxidant it defends the skin. Helpful in reducing scars and promotes healing. It acts as a natural preservative for products.
Directions: With clean hands, apply small dots of eye crème with your ring finger around the bony area surrounding the eyes. Gently pat the dots until the crème is absorbed. Use morning and night. Can be used under makeup. Also great for face, neck, hands to slow the signs of aging.
