Ingredients that compose Acquacell: Water & Glycerin & Citrullus vulgaris (Watermelon) Fruit Extract & Pyrus malus (Apple) Fruit Extract & Lens Esculenta (Lentil) Fruit Extract & Sodium PCA & Sodium Lactate.
AcquaCell is a natural complex combining watermelon rind extract, Lens Esculenta (Lentil) Fruit Extract and unripened apple and apple skin in an optimized delivery system. Watermelon rind is one of nature’s few materials to contain citrulline. Citrulline is essential to the functioning of filaggrin which forms a critical part of the skin’s own water based moisturizing complex. The lentil extract contains vitamin B5 and trisaccharides. The apple starch is a source of polysaccharides, sodium lactate and sodium PCA.
Tested on 20 subjects at 3%, AcquaCell provided 24 hours’ skin hydration with one simple application and signifi- cantly reduced fine lines after 2 hours.
With one simple application, AcquaCell increased the cell membrane fluidity by 40%. Membrane fluidity is typical of young and healthy skin; the more unsaponifiables in the lipidic bilayer, the better. A diet based on meat increases saturated fatty acid supply and decreases the rigidity of membranes. Rigidity comes with aging.
AcquaCell upregulates filaggrin by 123% and AQP3 by 144%.
In two weeks at 3%, AcquaCell increased the water retained by corneocytes by 85%.
Tested for 2 weeks, AcquaCell dramatically increased key elements in the skin: Citrulline by 440%, Sodium PCA by 180%, Sodium Lactate by 60%. Moisture in the skin increased by 35%, dryness decreased by 60% and skin cohesion increased by 50%.
Brazil Nut Oil
The Brazil Nut Oil contained inside Signature Glow should not react with any nut allergies.
Rich in linoleic acid that is part of the complex composition of the lipids of the skin, Brazil Nut Oil helps in the skin barrier function and controls the trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL). The brazil nut oil contains liposoluble vitamins such as A and E, which are essential in protecting the skin, preventing aging and appearance of wrinkles and loss of elasticity. It is a rich source for selenium (126 ppm) known as powerful natural antioxidant that protects the skin tissues against free radicals released by harmful solar insolation and environmental pollution. Has one of the highest natural concentrations in phytic acid, a natural plant antioxidant, most often used as a skin lighting agent in the skin care industry.
Matryxil synthe' 6
Another important ingredient contained inside each jar of "Signature Glow' is a powerful peptide known as Matryxil. Naturally derived from collagen VI and laminins, Matryxil rebuilds the skin where it is needed from the inside, smoothing wrinkles and evens out skin. These effects are most apparent around the forehead and eyes. It also stimulates the synthesis of 6 major constituents of the skin matrix and dermal-epidermal junction
Ingredients that compose Matryxil synthe' 6: Glycerin – Water (Aqua) – Hydroxypropyl Cyclodextrin – Palmitoyl Tripeptide-38
