Reset + Redensify
Restore youthful looking skin by preventing future damage while correcting lost volume and wrinkles.
Reset + Redensify
A.G.E. Interrupter is specifically formulated to add volume to skin’s framework to improve the creping, thinning appearance of mature skin caused by intrinsic aging processes such as glycation.
C E Ferulic® is a revolutionary antioxidant combination that strengthens skin’s natural defenses and repair mechanisms – neutralizing free radicals and boosting collagen synthesis – to offer unmatched protection against photoaging.
In a clinical study of A.G.E. Interrupter using fluorescence measurements, blueberry extract in the presence of ribose as a reducing sugar had a similar dose response to positive control aminoguanidine, a potent glycation inhibitor. In addition, in reconstructed skin containing collagen modified by glycation, treatment with blueberry extract diminished CML antibodies (one of the A.G.E.s found in chronologically aged skin in-vivo), and returned previously over-expressed biomarkers to a normal pattern of distribution. These results indicate a return to skin’s normal morphological structure.
Blueberry extract is both an antioxidant and anti-glycation ingredient that inhibits advanced glycation end-products (A.G.E.s) while preventing further oxidation from occurring. Proxylane rebuilds the support structure that degrades as a direct result of intrinsic aging and efficiently improves anchorage of the skin’s upper layers onto the dermis to increase elasticity and thickness. Phytosphingosine protects the skin’s barrier, while rich emollients hydrate dry, cracking skin.
Our advanced research group evaluated several different blueberry extracts, screening each for anti-glycation activity, selecting the particular extract in A.G.E. Interrupter for its potent anti-glycation activity, compatibility with other actives in the formula and efficiency in skin. We currently have two patents pending with this specific ingredient, including one for anti- glycation and another for MMP inhibition. Four percent of the extract was the level found to be most effective in clinical trials.
A.G.E. Interrupter: Massage a thin, even veil into the entire face, neck and chest once or twice daily.
C E Ferulic®: In the morning after cleansing and toning, apply 4-5 drops to a dry face, neck and chest.
Key Ingredient 1
Blueberry extract: Inhibits the glycation of collagen, normalizes MMP-1 production, prevents degradation of healthy collagen types IV and VII, and stimulates procollagen I and III, which are essential components of young-looking skin.
Key Ingredient 2
Proxylane™: This innovative ingredient stimulates the synthesis of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which prompt the skin to re-inflate from within.
Key Ingredient 3
15% L-ascorbic acid: Neutralizes free radicals and promotes collagen synthesis.
Key Ingredient 4
1% alpha tocopherol (vitamin E): Neutralizes free radicals, provides the healing process.
