Description of RX-12 Anti-Aging & Skin Protect Serum 1 oz, from Juvelink
RX-12 Anti-Aging & Skin Protect
- Anti-wrinkle and Face-lifting.
- Protect skin against environmental stresses.
- With 12 powerful anti-aging ingredients.
RX-12 brings together everything Juvelink's research team has learned about anti-aging skincare. Precious ingredients from all over the world are combined bringing you the most remarkable cream we've ever created giving you instant gratification plus long-term results. Your skin can look younger, radiant and lifted…Today, tomorrow and years from now. Our unique formula not only helps boost the skin's own production of proteins that prevent sagging skin but also helps protect the skin against environmental stresses from the sun, pollution and smoke.
RX 12 has been formulated using a combination of ingredients that represent the most recent advances in skincare technology. Through extensive research and breakthrough technology we have formulated a high potency wrinkle formula that attacks every angle of the skin-aging process. Some of these ingredients will protect the skin from the environmental factors that cause skin aging while others help restore vital skin proteins and nutrients. This combination of antioxidants, peptides, "face-lifters", and moisturizers work together in synergy to create an anti-wrinkling and "face-lifting" effect. The result is a high quality formula that restores and maintains the skin's youthful appearance by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Innovative ingredients help prevent collagen from losing its spring and encourage skin to boost its natural production of collagen. This results in skin that looks toned and lifted. The light weight cream also restores and strengthens the lipid barrier so skin can protect itself naturally.
LETS GET SCIENTIFIC
RX-12 contains more than 12 powerful ingredients: Idebenone, Matrixyl 3000, Alpha Lipoic acid, DMAE, Vitamin E, Pro-Vitamin B5, Hyaluronic Acid, Copper, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Sunflower Seed Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, and Wheat Germ Oil.
Idebenone (1%) is the most potent and effective topical antioxidant available. It helps prevent free radicals from breaking down collagen and elastin. By doing so, it not only reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but also protects the skin against environmental factors such as sun damage, air pollution and cigarette smoke.
A study that compared idebenone's protective capacity against oxidative stress to that of tocopherol (vitamin E), kinetin (Kinerase®), CoEnzyme Q10 (Q10 Plus Wrinkle Control products by Nivea®), ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) and lipoic acid (N.V. Perricone M.D. Cosmeceuticals®), showed that idebenone is the most potent and effective antioxidant. It has been proven effective in protecting the skin against key factors that cause fine lines and wrinkles such as ultraviolet radiation (sun damage), ozone, air pollution and cigarette smoke.
Idebenone 1% not only helps to correct skin damage that you may already have, but also helps protect your skin from upcoming damage.
Matrixyl 3000 (3%) contains two matrikines which act in synergy to restore and maintain the skin's youthful appearance. Matrikines are small endogenous peptides that act as messengers of skin restructuration and repair. They activate the neosynthesis of extracellular matrix macromolecules. 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 vitro, the two peptides showed synergistic effects on the synthesis of collagen 1, fibronectin and hyaluronic acid.
The results generated by the clinical studies show excellent anti-wrinkle efficacy for MATRIXYL 3000 after 56 days of daily application:
A clinical study was conducted in which 2 groups of 23 subjects aged 39 to 74 applied a cream containing 3% Matrixyl 3000 to one-half of their face against a placebo or 3% Matrixyl (StriVectin-SD®) on the other half twice a day for 56 days. Anti-wrinkling and lifting efficacy was assessed by profilometry and photography, as compared to T0. Major and significant improvements in elasticity and tone were also seen.
Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) is a completely natural antioxidant molecule that is present in every cell of our bodies. Like vitamin C, it has been well-known to scientists for many years. However, in recent years research has shown how beneficial this substance can be, both when applied topically and taken orally. ALA is both water-soluble and fat-soluble, which makes it a universal antioxidant, able to work both on the surface of cells and deep within them, as opposed to vitamin C (water-soluble) and vitamin E (fat-soluble), which can fight free radicals either on the surface or within the cell, but not both. As a result of this universal solubility, ALA can increase the positive effects of other antioxidants. The presence of ALA in cells helps preserve other levels, such as vitamin C, vitamin E, and glutathione, giving skin cells extra protection.
Additionally, ALA is the only antioxidant that can increase a cell's metabolism, which tends to slow down aging. It helps increase cell energy production leading to enhanced capacity to heal. Furthermore, ALA plays a very special role when it comes to suppress inflammation, the condition that precedes lines and wrinkles. It prevents the cell from producing the types of eicosanoids (cytokines) that damage the cell in the first place.
But it also does something else: It activates a factor within the cell that turns on enzymes that actually digest collagen that has already been damaged by free radicals. That is why the topical application of ALA results in remarkable fading and improvement in wrinkles and facial scars. ALA also helps prevent the toxic effects of too much sugar in the cell. Excess cellular sugar attaches to just about every protein in the body in a process called glycation. When sugar attaches to collagen, it results in cross-linking of the collagen, which makes it stiff and inflexible - like a cooked egg white. Alpha lipoic acid helps reverse the attachment of sugar to collagen by allowing better metabolism of sugar by the cell. This prevents the accelerated aging of collagen from sugar's toxic effects.
ALA also helps promote the healthy production of nitric oxide, a substance that helps control blood flow to the skin. This increased blood flow decreases swelling and edema, thus reducing under-eye puffiness and giving your skin a healthy glow.
DMAE is an antioxidant found in abundance in fish. When mixed with nutrients and other antioxidants and applied topically, it can improve the appearance of sagging skin by acting in the microscopic space under the skin where the nerves act on underlying muscle. Topically applied DMAE starts to work within minutes of application and its firming effect lasts for nearly 24 hours. Continuous use of DMAE results in firmer skin virtually wherever it's applied. DMAE also boosts the effects of other antioxidants and results in increased smoothness and reduction of fine wrinkles. Those who use DMAE topically report a leaner look as their facial musculature improves.
Copper is often referred to as the most effective skin regeneration product. Here's why: Studies have shown that copper peptide promotes collagen and elastin production, and also acts as an antioxidant. It also promotes production of glycosaminoglycans (such as hyaluronic acid). Studies have also shown that copper-dependent enzymes increase the benefits of the body's natural tissue building processes. The substance helps to firm, smoothen, and soften skin, doing it in less time than most other anti-aging skincare products. Copper peptides also remove damaged collagen and elastin from the skin and scar tissue by activating the skin's natural mechanisms responsible for those functions.
Hyaluronic acid is often touted for its ability to "reverse" or stop aging. In news reports, you might have heard of hyaluronic acid as the "key to the fountain of youth." This is because the substance occurs naturally and is found in abundance in young skin. Hyaluronic acid is a component of the body's connective tissues, and is known to cushion and lubricate. As you age, however, the forces of nature destroy hyaluronic acid. Diet and smoking can also affect your body's level of hyaluronic acid over time. Topical replenishment of hyaluronic acid leads to healthy and youthful looking skin.
As always, we take pride in bringing you a high quality, cruelty free product.
