For years, fighting the visible signs of aging has meant using anti aging skin care that contains active ingredients such as alpha-hydroxy-acids, beta-hydroxy-acids and retinoids. These actives act on wrinkles primarily by eliminating dead skin cells and accelerating the cell renewal process with varying degrees of success. However, now a new and groundbreaking discovery has emerged in the form of a brown algae.
One of the clinical signs of aging is, among other things, the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles. Another sign of the aging process is the change that takes place in your skin structure and skin "texture" which becomes more noticeable as you age because the micro-contours of your skin cells is less regular.
Scientists involved in anti aging skin care have been searching for new and useful materials that can decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and assist in their long-term treatment, or both. There is also a need to find safe, natural and renewable materials to provide these benefits.
They found that extracts from marine plants proved extremely useful in anti aging skin care by providing improvement to the firmness and elasticity of your skin or softening the look of lines and wrinkles, particularly on your face and hands.
Extracts from marine plants also exhibit retinol-like properties, antioxidant properties, tensioning properties, cell renewal enhancing properties and hydrating properties.
Padina Pavonica, in particular – a fan shaped brown algae, is hand picked daily by scuba divers from the temperate waters of Malta and is a clinically proven collagen boosting seaweed.
The purified extract of this intelligent algae, not only helps the skin's metabolism, but it stimulates the synthesis of Glycosaminoglucan molecules (GAGs) at the cellular level. These hydrophilic (water attracting) molecules are responsible for the moisturizing, and thus for the firmness and elasticity, of your skin.
Your skin cells produce GAGs every day; However, aging slows down and decreases cellular regeneration, effect speeding up the aging process.
A leading French doctor researched the benefits of Padina Pavonica for 10 years and it then took a further 3 years to develop as anti aging skin care.
The discovery of Padina Pavonica has changed the face of skincare forever. Independent clinical trials proved that it helps reduce wrinkles by up to 19% in just 15 days.
Dynamic anti aging skin care products that have been developed with the very latest scientific research and include the unique and groundbreaking natural ingredient Padina Pavonica, will increase skin elasticity, suppleness, firmness and hydration levels whilst offering additional support.
Not to be confused with anti aging skin care that contains collagen. Collagen molecules are too large to penetrate your skin's tough outer layers and any external application would be a pointless waste of money.
To summarize: The brown fan shaped marine algae, Padina Pavonica, is a clinically proven collagen boosting seaweed extract, which means it will activate the production of new collagen within your skin cells and anti aging skin care products containing this algae will boost your body's own collagen levels naturally so you can have younger, firmer looking skin.
