MSM is present as a basic component in all living cells. It is in rain water, but is almost completely missing from most of our food, because processing, preparing (even washing and handling) destroys the MSM. No one is allergic to it, because MSM is necessary for life! Pure MSM can only be good for you. MSM makes cell walls permeable, allowing water and nutrients to freely flow into cells and allowing wastes and toxins to properly flow out. The building blocks of the body, amino acids, are all sulfur binders and play a major role in the production of hormones and enzymes which regulate the body’s activities. MSM and vitamin C are used by the body together to build healthy new cells. MSM provides the flexible bond between the cells. Without MSM, the new cell is not permeable, and osmosis is hampered.
Aged fibroblasts secrete less collagen than young cells; niacinamide can stimulate new collagen synthesis. Niacinamide up-regulates epidermal ceramide synthesis with concurrent epidermal barrier benefits. Ceramides are now known to play a central role in the structural and functional integrity of the stratum corneum barrier function. A decrease in ceramide fraction has been reported in aged skin. It appears that topical niacinamide is able to augment the barrier properties of the skin, with accompanying clinically relevant benefits, by up-regulating endogenous biosynthesis of epidermal sphingolipids, in particular ceramides. Niacinamide inhibits transfer of melanosomes from melanocytes to keratinocytes. Niacinamide reduces human skin hyperpigmentation. Niacinamide exerts multiple benefits on the appearance of ageing / photodamaged skin, in-vivo. Niacinamide is delivered effectively from a range of vehicles and demonstrates excellent skin compatibility.

Zincite – Smithsonite extract
Smithsonite rarely occurs in visible crystals. Recently, two African mines have produced many large crystals different from all other Smithsonite specimens. Smithsonite is essentially zinc carbonate, but the zinc is usually partially replaced with other elements. This is responsible for the great color variations this mineral exhibits. Copper is responsible for a green to blue coloring; cobalt, pink to purple; cadmium, yellow; iron, brown to reddish-brown. The use of Zinc for skin care is an ancient discovery: the Chinese used zinc sulfate to reduce scarring. Today, we know that zinc is involved in the activity of more than 200 enzymes and plays a fundamental role in every biological component involving growth and development. Zinc plays an essential role in the metabolism of RNA and DNA, from maintaining the double helix structure to the pairing of the most diverse molecules, and therefore without it, cell division stops. It is also important to the skin because it helps incorporate sulphur amino acids (cysteine and methionine) into cutaneous proteins, and is thus instrumental in elastin synthesis. Zin’Cîte®, is a new generation of active protective ingredients. Zin’Cîte® is a colorless, odorless liquid extract.It is a stable ingredient that can easily be added to all types of ormulations. Its special action – based on its richness in zinc – protects our DNA, the source code of all of our cells.

GLYCERIN, PALMITOYL TRIPEPTIDE-5
It is a deep penetrating, bio-active ingredient that removes the appearance of any type of wrinkle. It has a unique sequence to mimic the body’s own mechanism to produce collagen. It therefore compensates for any collagen deficit in the skin and makes the skin look younger. In addition, it has skin moisturizing properties. It has been clinically proven to be safe and effective and can be used in any type of anti-ageing product for every aspect of wrinkle reduction.
Hexapeptide-10 is designed to improve cell adhesion, thus reducing the loss of skin firmness, dryness and yellowing of skin tone. It fights degeneration of the dermo-epidermal junction caused by aging, increasing the keratinocytes and fibroblasts. It stimulates the synthesis of Laminin-5, which helps in the cohesion between dermis and epidermis, improving elasticity and tonicity of the skin. It also increases cell proliferation and induces an increase in dermis density, resulting in improvement in skin smoothness.
Matrixyl- Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-3
Matrixyl is the trademark name for palmitoyl pentapeptide-3, one of the powerful peptide molecules found in the latest generation of high-end anti wrinkle skin care products. This breakthrough ingredient stimulates collagen production in the skin. Matrixyl is a lipopeptide, a fatty acid mixed with amino acids. It is also considered to be a synthetic isomer (an isomer is a molecule that has an identical structure to another molecule but different atomic components). The active element in Matrixyl is called Micro-collagen – another peptide. Matrixyl was discovered through two branches of dermatological research: the search for substances that accelerate healing skin wounds and the study of what causes wrinkles. Similarly to copper peptides, Matrixyl stimulates the lower layers of the skin to heal themselves, thus accelerating the healing of wounds. Cells called fibroblasts are responsible for knitting together wounds of the skin. As you may know, as one ages wounds take longer to heal. This is partially because fibroblasts slowly lose the capacity for collagen production. Matrixyl stimulates the “matrix” layers in the skin — primarily collagen and fibronectin. When stimulated, the skin produces more collagen. Loss of collagen is what leads to thinning skin and the wrinkling of newly inelastic skin. Matrixyl helps to counteract this natural part of the aging process.
This extract is a naturally occurring chemical compound found in botanical extracts. can be found in a wide array of products because of its ability to promote healthy skin.

It is used for its healing, moisturizing, soothing and anti-irritating properties.
Arnica is a perennial that grows to a height of 1 – 2 feet with yellow-orange flowers similar to daisies. Stems are round and hairy, ending in one to three flower stalks, with flowers 2 – 3 inches across. Leaves are bright green. The upper leaves are toothed and slightly hairy, while lower leaves have rounded tips. It is native to the mountains of Europe and Siberia, and is cultivated in North America. Arnica (Arnica montana) has been used for medicinal purposes since the 1500s and remains popular today. Applied topically as a cream, ointment, liniment, salve, or tincture, Europeans and Native Americans have used arnica to soothe muscle aches, reduce inflammation, and heal wounds. It is often the first remedy used for injuries such as sprains and bruises. Arnica in herbal form is primarily restricted to topical (external) use because it can cause serious side effects when taken internally. Arnica is often used in homeopathy, and should be taken internally only in the extremely diluted form common to homeopathic remedies. If you have any question about whether you have the herbal or homeopathic form of arnica, talk to your doctor before taking it.
Centella asiatica (also known as gotu kola, Indian Pennywort and Mandookaparni) has been used for centuries as a medicinal herb and was referred to in the French pharmacopoeia in 1884, as well as the ancient traditional Chinese Shennong Herbal some 2,000 years ago, as well in Indian Ayurvedic medicine some 3,000 years ago. It contains a variety of ingredients, but the active ingredients are asiaticoside (a triterpene glycoside) (triterpenoid), brahmoside and brahminoside (both saponin glycosides), madecassoside (a glycoside with strong anti-inflammatory properties), madecassic acid, thiamine, riboflavin, pyridoxine, vitamin K, asparate, glutamate, serine, threonine, alanine, lysine, histidine, magnesium, calcium and sodium.
It has a high concentration of thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2) and pyridoxine (vitamin B6) which assists to convert carbohydrates into glucose as well as normal nervous system functioning. With its effect on connective tissue, great value is achieved with the synthesis of collagen, thickening of the skin (a great anti-aging property – as we age our skins become thinner), increasing the tensile strength of the flesh, wound healing, and repair of damaged tissue.

Copaiba trees are considerably branched and grow from 15-30 m high. They produce many small, white flowers on long panicles and small fruit pods with 2-4 seeds inside. There are 35 species of Copaifera, found mainly in tropical South America. The part of the tree that is often employed medicinally is the oleoresin that accumulates in cavities within the tree trunk. A single copaiba tree can provide about 40 liters of oleoresin annually, making it a sustainable rainforest resource that can be harvested without destroying the tree or the forest in which it grows. On the Rio Solimoes in northwest Amazonia, copaiba resin is used topically by indigenous tribes as a wound healer, to stop bleeding, for skin sores and psoriasis, and to treat gonorrhea. Healers and curanderos in the Amazon today use copaiba resin for all types of pain, for skin disorders and insect bites, and to cool inflammation. In Brazilian herbal medicine systems the resin is used as a strong antiseptic and expectorant for the respiratory tract (including bronchitis and sinusitis), as an anti-inflammatory and antiseptic for the urinary tract (for cystitis, bladder, and kidney infections), as a topical anti-inflammatory agent for all types of skin problems.
The therapeutic properties of this herb in skin care is that of being a vasodilator, increasing circulation, improving sebaceous secretions, decreasing capillary hyper-permeability, improving tissue irrigation and activating cell metabolism (especially in the cortex, by increasing glucose and oxygen uptake).

Rovisome C – Liposome Vitamin C
Liposome Vitamin C MAP is a phosphate ester, and therefore can be hydrolyzed to ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) in the skin by enzymes (phosphatase), at which point it will show its physiological and pharmacological activities. In order to achieve these results, however, MAP must penetrate the Corneocyte Layer to reach the target layers of skin. This is the purpose of the Liposome Deliver System (LDS). A Liposome is a vesicle that forms when phospholipids hydrate in water. Studies have shown that TWICE as much of the active is delivered to the living epidermis by an LDS when compared to topical application of the active alone.
Vitamin C Actives has been widely used in various cosmetics and quasi-drugs because of its advantageous properties such as inhibitory effects on melanogenesis, promotion of collagen synthesis, and prevention of lipid peroxidation. Vitamin C is especially useful in anti-wrinkle and skin lightening formula, and its performance in these two arenas can be potentiated by coupling the Rovisome C with Sodium Lactate in the formula. Application areas for Rovisome C would include: skin toning, elasticity, moisturization, wrinkle reduction, moisturizing, skin tightening, penetration, peeling, carrier system, whitening. How does the performance of rovisome c compare to that of ascorbic acid? Ascorbic acid has several documented physiological and pharmacological effects on the skin. Ascorbic acid acts as an inhibitor of melanin formation and also plays a role in collagen formation. Rovisome C has been developed to offer formulators the benefits of a Vitamin C Active that can be delivered to the target layers, without the stability issues.
