SerumScoop: Tips, tricks and news
FluidiPure 8G is a biomimetic purifying active agent which offers complete protection for the body’s “cutaneous cocoon.” As a glycine and sugar “biovector,” FluidiPure 8G helps to limit the proliferation of microorganisms responsible for cutaneous disorders. Its biomimetic acidifying power helps attacked skin to regain its physiological acidic pH, ensuring its integrity.
When tested in vivo on hair, it reduces the appearance of dandruff, soothes the scalp and eliminates unpleasant odors after 5 and 10 shampoos (clinical study performed on 46 volunteers vs. placebo).
On skin, FluidiPure 8G participates in reducing unpleasant scalp odors while it helps preserves bacteria beneficial to the skin and restore the skin’s natural acidic pH mantle, also helping to reduce skin sensitivity.
FluidiPure 8G also reduces the effects of 5-alpha reductase by 18% compared to a control, helping to regulate sebum and the reduction of hair loss.
Get these remarkable benefits in both RevivScalp Rejuvenating Scalp Serum Masque and RevivHair Stimulating Shampoo.
How is inflammation different from an allergic reaction?…
Inflammation is the body’s normal reaction to threat. It is a process by which the immune system recruits its resources—e.g., cells, small peptides named cytokines, hormones and the like—to battle an invader such as bacteria, radiation or a chemical.
In order to eradicate the threat, the immune system initiates a cascade of reactions, collectively termed inflammation. These eventually lead to a resolution and healing.
To pave paths to the site of inflammation, the body elevates the site’s temperature, blood flow, nerve sensation, etc. This is manifested in the skin as redness (erythema), swelling (edema) and local heat.
An allergy is a specific immune reaction, typically to a chemical invader that is often a protein or a peptide. This reaction requires genetic predisposition; that is, only certain individuals who express specific proteins are allergic to specific type of chemical exposure.
Every allergy triggers inflammation, but not every inflammatory response is due to an allergy. Inflammation can also be triggered by an irritant, which does not require genetic predisposition and affects the entire population, or to harmful bacteria; in this case, it is referred to as an infection.

Head-to-Head Comparison: HA7X Multi-Molecular Hydrator Serum vs. SkinMedica® HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator
HA7X is the first direct competitor to award-winning HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator by SkinMedica®, a component of Allergan, Inc.
HA7X includes 29 of the same primary ingredients in HA5, including Vitis Flower Stem Cell Extract, Peptide Complexes, and Sea Polysaccharides from French Polynesia.
But we didn't stop there: HA7X includes two additional, cutting-edge hyaluronic technologies (for a total of seven); HA5 only contains five.
HA7X is also the first U.S. product to contain benefits of Gold award-winning Neurophroline™ targeting stress, pollution, and cortisol.
Yet with these new actives, HA7X is about half the price as SkinMedica’s version.
HA7X works for all skin types, and is the perfect complement to any skincare regimen to prevent and combat the signs of aging.

"I don't quite know which of the 10 key ingredients it is that does the job, but whatever it is- it just works. Over the past month I have most definitely noticed a tightening and lifting of my skin that can't be put down to any of the other skincare products that I am using at the moment. My pores have also shrunk noticeably since using this product on a daily basis. My makeup application has also been much improved due to the refined texture and plumpness of my skin. I have also found that when moisturizing after use of the serum, my dry skin seems to absorb my moisturizer better. Again, I don't know why it works and for the sake of being painfully honest, I don't really care. All I care about is that when I stand in front of the mirror and am ready to put on my makeup, I'm actually pleased at what I see staring back at me."
