Ingredient In-Depth: Inyline

Another of the cutting-edge peptides found in the new glotherapeutics Ultra 15% Vitamin C is Inyline: a new molecular cosmetics hexapeptide.

It fights facial expression lines by targeting muscle contraction using post-synaptic strategy. It is specifically formulated to target pathways that, upon repeated contractions made during facial expression, can turn into lines and wrinkles on the face.

During an anti-wrinkle efficacy test, volunteers applied Inyline on the test area (crow's feet) twice daily for 28 days. Here were the results, which show a significant decrease in wrinkle depth, demonstrating Inyline's ability to attenuate expression wrinkles.

Ingredient In-Depth: Glycation & Longevicell

What is Glycation: Time or health issues can weaken the body’s ability to effectively manage glucose. Glucose starts to cross-link with collagen, which stiffens and damages it. Excessive glucose compromises the body on a molecular level just as too much sugar in a diet can affect one’s overall health. Glycation typically begins around age 35 and progresses rapidly.

How Longevicell Helps Fight Glycation: This superstar ingredient, found in Ultra 15% Vitamin C, works as an effective cell regenerator to inhibit collagen glycation and limit the appearance of aging.

Other key features of Longevicell:
  • Prevents dermal tissue from becoming rigid, by blocking protein glycation
  • Called the “guardian of tissue life” because it stimulates the protein that increases longevity (hence, the name!)
  • Stimulates cell communication

Results: Studies show that 89% of test subjects experienced a reduction in crow’s feet after 56 days of use.

The Importance of Moisture

Dry skin is characterized by a lack of moisture in the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of the epidermis. The barrier of the skin is comprised of fatty acids, ceramides, and cholesterol. A
dysfunctional barrier cannot hold the proper amount of water and allows moisture to evaporate from the skin.

If the hydration levels are not increased in the skin, the depletion of water causes a reduction in the cohesiveness between corneocytes, the cells that make up the stratum corneum. As a result, the corners of the corneocytes turn up and eventually will scale and flake - commonly known as dry skin. The skin then becomes dry and brittle. Rough surfaces do not refract light as clearly and the healthy glow from the microcirculation is hidden by the accumulation of corneocytes. Aging skin shows an increase in dehydration and a slower recovery from damage to the skin’s surface.

Cosmeceutical moisturizers like the new glotherapeutics Moisturize and Restore collection address dry skin symptoms by raising hydration levels in the stratum corneum and by acting as a natural barrier to keep the nutrients in the skin. Essential fatty acids, ceramides, emollients and humectants will reverse the negative effects of dry skin by restoring elasticity, leaving the skin smooth and velvety soft.
