Exclusive to Imedeen supplements, their Marine Complex is derived from a deep sea source in clean, clear waters. It is rich in proteins and polysaccharides that are similar to those found in the skin’s supportive tissues and are essential for skin structure and moisture. The Marine Complex fish protein is high in amino acids that are directly involved in the production of collagen and elastin. These are both essential for maintaining quality and density of the skin.
Vitamin C is a wonderful nutrient that provides some amazing benefits to our skin. It is one of the simplest skin care ingredients thanks to its ability to form collagen and elastin that both help to keep the skin plump, taut and young. It is also famous as an antioxidant that eliminates free radical damage to our cells. This damage is caused by harsh external and environmental factors like pollution, UV rays and bad diets, but antioxidants help to protect the cells from this oxidative stress by neutralising free radicals from such factors.
Dermatologists believe that vitamin C has excellent effects on fine lines and wrinkles and is considered to be one of the best ingredients for dark spots (pigmentation). It not only helps to brighten the skin, but also prevents the production of tyrosinase, which is an enzyme responsible for pigmentation.
As an essential building block of skin-plumping collagen and elastin, vitamin C has also been found to encourage the body’s production of these proteins, which is why it has become the anti-ageing wonder ingredient that it is today.
Zinc is an essential mineral and plays many complex roles in our body, one of which being maintaining the health of our skin. Not only does it contribute to the protection of our cells against oxidative stress, but also DNA synthesis, maintenance of normal skin and is included in the process of cell division. Its assistance in the renewal of skin cells and ability to prevent free radical damage that causes skin ageing has made zinc a key ingredient within all Imedeen products to help keep the skin looking youthful and healthy.
