Have you ever spent a lot of money on a moisturizer full of impressive-sounding ingredients, used it for some months and really never noticed a difference in your skin? I have done this many times and it’s incredibly frustrating.
Some products are full of everything they need to transform your skin, except one small thing: a way to deliver it. Their structure is not correct. It’s as if the moisturizer shows up on your doorstep with everything you need, but never knocks, so the package never makes it inside. And what good is a great moisturizer if it’s never actually delivered into the skin?
This always concerned me until I started understanding molecular structure, then found native extracts that had the ability to penetrate through the epidermis going down to the dermis which is 10 – 40 times thicker than the epidermis. That is where rejuvenation work needs to happen.
You may think that all you need to do to moisturize your skin is to apply a product. After all, the moisturizer and the skin are touching, right?
Unfortunately, that’s not enough. If the skin can’t absorb the moisturizer and deliver those powerful ingredients to every layer, you’re just going to wash it all off in the morning.
The good news is that with the right key, your moisturizer can unlock the door to your skin. There are two ways to achieve the penetration and in turn results.
One way to do this is through phospholipids. Phospholipids are made up of two fatty acids (long chain of hydrogen and carbon molecules attached to a glycerol head). Your skin contains its own lipids that interact well with phospholipids, allowing them to pass the skin barrier. Because of this, phospholipids provide a great transdermal delivery system. They also have strong tissue affinity, are biodegradable and have almost no toxicity. So if you want to make sure your moisturizer is actually going to do you any good, one way is to look for presence of phospholipids (fatty acids).
The second approach is to use selected native extracts. These are equally effective at transporting key ingredients through the dermis and epidermis. By utilising phospholipids and native extracts, we’ve created a range that works with all skin types. You’ll enjoy fewer wrinkles and smoother, more vibrant skin.
Try LifeCell Cream, LifeCell Under Eye Treatment, Cell Infuse Restore Cream and Body Custard to utilise the power of phospholipids or Cell Infuse Regenisis Vitamin Serum, Glow Mask, Power Scrub and Hydrating Cleanser with Lime Caviar to experience our highly effective native extracts range.
In the next two months, we’ll be releasing two more products that contain both delivery agents. Most importantly, don’t turn back to old style moisturisers that lack the ability to truly penetrate and rejuvenate your skin.
Here’s to healthy, hydrated skin,
