WITH STEM CELLS, GROWTH FACTORS, AND PEPTIDES
Ultimate Serum is a novel next-generation high performance product that addresses every concern of aging skin and is the ultimate rejuvenator in a single serum. With PhytoCellTec stem cells, growth factors, peptides, tripeptides, hexapeptides, antioxidants, emollients, sebum-controllers, anti-inflammatories, collagen producers, phytosterols, glycolipids and polyphenols.
Containing 23 of the same top ingredients in award-winning TNS Essential Serum® by SkinMedica® Allergan®, Ultimate Serum leapfrogs such products by including revolutionary biotechnology that helps protect skin stem cells. Topped off with the matrix-fibroblast stimulation power of hexapeptides.
Bonus facts: Twice the ounce-size of TNS, our Ultimate Serum has a pleasant scent (without the need to add any covering fragrance), and is about half the price of TNS. Here's a head-to-head comparison.
ABOUT THE KEY INGREDIENTS
REVIVFIBROMEDIA MULTIPLE GROWTH FACTORS
Recombinant Human Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) is a cytokine that has been shown to accelerate healing, increase the rate of skin renewal which slows with age, and help to slow down thinning of the skin. Cytokines also assists with inflammation and regulates wound healing. Recombinant Human Keratinocyte Growth Factor (KGF) can help increase skin volume and thickness by having a positive effect on fibroblasts, adding them to the collagen biomatrix. Note that such growth factors are similar to hormones in that very little is required to be effective.
PHYTOCELLTEC MALUS DOMESTICA
PhytoCellTec™ is a revolutionary liposomal preparation from Switzerland based on the stem cells of a rare Swiss apple - the Uttwiler Spatlauber - known for its excellent storability and thus its longevity. A novel technology enables the stem cell cultivation of this rare and endangered species. Various studies demonstrate its age-delaying and anti-wrinkle effects.
Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-14 and Tripeptide-5 are novel short-chain amino acids with skin regenerative properties, and clinical studies show proven wrinkle reduction. Copper Peptide (GHK) helps stimulate collagen synthesis and accelerates healing by repairing DNA. GHK also has anti-inflammatory properties and can reduce scar tissue formation while stimulating normal skin remodeling.
A glycoside extracted from the bearberry plant, arbutin is also found in wheat and pear skins. It inhibits tyrosinase and thus prevents the formation of melanin, helping to thwart age spots, melasma and mottled complexion. It is much more expensive than traditional skin lightening agents like hydroquinone, but can decrease melanin content without evidence of cytotoxicity.
DIPALMITOYL HYDROXYPROLINE (SEPILIFT™ DPHP)
This Ecocert validated ingredient is a superb overall anti-aging active which also works to moisturize while providing a triple firming action: collagen fiber contraction, protection of dermal supporting tissue and anti-radical action.
BV-OSC (TETRAHEXYLDECYL ASCORBATE)
This oil-soluble version of vitamin C is very bio-available and has excellent percutaneous absorption into the skin compared to ascorbic acid. It is able to penetrate keratinocytes to assist with the prevention of UV damage and provide a cytoprotection effect against cell mortality. Studies show its anti-aging properties, including collagen synthesis. The use of BV-OSC has shown to double collagen synthesis in fibroblasts. It has also been shown to reduce melanogenesis by more than 80% and inhibit tyrosinase activity, making it an excellent ingredient for brightening and evening out skin tone. While BV-OSC is decidedly more expensive than other forms of Vitamin C, its benefits clearly outweigh its hefty price.
SACCAROMYCES FERMENT LYSATE FILTRATE
This innovative ingredient offers DNA protection, lipid barrier protection and repair, free radical protection, and protection of antioxidants. In vitro studies confirm it prevents the formation of Advanced Glycation Endproducts (AGEs) and stimulates the production of soluble elastin (precursor to insoluble elastin) in human fibroblasts.
Ubiquinone/Coenzyme Q10, Tocopheryl Acetate, and Tocotrienols are all powerful antioxidants which effectively break peroxide chain reactions and prevent free radicals.
HUMECTANTS & MOISTURIZERS
Sodium PCA, Olive Fruit Unsaponifiables, Shea Butter, Hydrolyzed Silk and Phospholipids all contribute to supple, superbly moisturized skin without occlusiveness.
Apply a thin layer to clean, dry skin (face, neck, chest and hands) once or twice daily. Suitable for the upper eyelid orbital bone area, but avoid contact with eyes. Decrease frequency or discontinue use if irritation develops. For external use only.
