Our Botanical Bio-Peptide Crème is a triple-action concentrated blend of non-irritating actives and cold-pressed botanicals that work together to produce both an immediate and cumulative effect on the skin. The active collagen-building properties of the amino peptide (palmitoyl pentapeptide 3), is as effective as low concentrate Retinol (.07%) but without the irritation. This is a creme rich in peptides, Hyaluronate, Atelocollagen and Glycerins.
Directions: Apply to clean skin at night. Massage gently into the skin beginning at the neck working towards the forehead, paying special attention to individual trouble spots.
Clients are always fascinated to learn that at night, the skin repairs itself from the day's damage. It's an amazing process, but one that is often overlooked and misunderstood. At night, skin experiences several changes:
..Transepidermal water loss (TEWL) increases, causing the skins protective hydrolipid barrier to weaken, allowing for greater penetration of active ingredients.
..The skins own natural antioxidant levels increase.
..Skin repairs from the day's damage from exposure to environmental aggressors, such as UV rays, smog, nicotine, etc. and rejuvenates itself.
..Stress hormones decrease during sleep, so the skin is better able to repair itself.
..Oil production is two times lower at night than during the day.
What are the benefits of a dedicated nighttime skin care plan?
The same routine is followed both morning and night: start with cleanser and end with moisturizer. But when the sun goes down and skin starts to work the night shift, you can take advantage of its physiological changes to maximize visible results--and see skin that looks firmer and younger in the morning.
