Our most potent peptide facial serum combined with five powerful peptides. A custom formulated serum created with the maximum recommended peptide concentrations, no skimping here. Fortified with our own peptide complex of Amplified Agireline Peptides, Matrixyl 3000 Peptides, Vegetal-C, Eseryl and Juglans Regia (Walnut) Seed Extract known as Gatuline® Age Defense by Gattefossé. This is an antioxidant, anti-pollution, protective and anti-aging agent. It is derived from the green walnut from groves overlooking the Alps. Intrinsic aging is the natural deterioration of the skin with age, while extrinsic aging is the cumulative effect of exposure to UV and environmental stress over time. It aids the skins cells to organize their own defenses against the extrinsic and chronological signs of aging protecting against oxidative stress, UVB-induced programmed cell death, and skin erythema or irritation. The manufacturers studies show it to be significantly more efficacious than Vitamin C in improved protein synthesis, to prevent elastin fibers from degrading thereby keeping the skin firmer and to aid in boosting cell metabolism slowing down the aging process of the cell. With a combination of scavenging and energizing molecules, it protects the natural cellular antioxidant pool. The skin is thus protected from harsh external factors—e.g. UV & pollution and able to resist the effects of time. It displays stimulating effect on cutaneous cell metabolism and anti-elastic activity. It stimulates keratinocyte proliferation and fibroblast protein synthesis.
