Most products positioned as “anti-aging” products promise to minimize, and even erase, the manifestations of skin aging, such as wrinkles. There are products that can help minimize the appearance of wrinkles, but no wrinkle is completely curable. A better approach would be to treat skin aging at the source by addressing the actual biochemical reactions that trigger these changes in skin before
Dermalogica is introducing AGE Smart, which works by impacting the main biochemical reactions that manifest the signs of skin aging: the formation of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS – also known as free radicals), the generation of Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMPs) and the development of Advanced Glycation End-products (AGEs).
A refreshing antioxidant shield with flash-firming properties to improve skin texture while intensely hydrating dry, dehydrated skin. Convenient mist-on formula supplements skin’s protective barrier by creating an active antioxidant shield of White Tea, Licorice and Vitamin E to fight damaging free radicals, while a patented polypeptide helps prevent the signs of aging caused by Advanced Glycation End-products (AGEs – a damaging byproduct of sugar/protein reactions in the skin). A highly-active Vitamin C complex, combined with collagen-stimulating peptides, encourages firmness and elasticity to help reduce the appearance of fine lines. Hyaluronic Acid acts as a hydration magnet to quench dehydrated skin while Pea Extract creates instant firming action to lift and tighten. Rose and Clove extracts comfort and refresh skin. Contains no artificial fragrance or color.
Arginine/Lysine Polypeptide is a peptide that acts as a “sugar trap,” binding sugar to itself to help prevent the formation of AGEs: a sugar-protein molecule that leads to stiff, cross linked collagen.
Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate is a non-acidic, stable form of Vitamin C that stimulates collagen formation, provides critical antioxidant protection and inhibits MMP enzymes that contribute to collagen breakdown.
Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 stimulates collagen synthesis, helps firm skin and overrides the effects of MMPs. Activates Tissue Growth Factor (TGF), a peptide that is required in its active state for collagen production to occur.
Bambusa (Bamboo) Vulgaris Extract and Pisum Sativum (Pea) Extract helps stimulate Hyaluronic Acid formation for increased hydration and elasticity.
