The science behind the secret...
Scars are a fundamental part of the healing process and result from of too much collagen being produced at the wound site. Scars go through many changes as they develop, but they are permanent. The Regener8 Skin Regenerator formulation of Peptan™, seaweed, vitamins and minerals has been developed to help improve the appearance of scars, not remove them.
As soon as the body develops faster than its covering skin, the skin tears making a scar as it heals. These scars can be seen on the top of the skin as stretch marks. The development of stretch marks differs according to skin type, age, race, diet and hydration of skin. People who are more prone to developing stretch marks are pregnant women, those who experience rapid weight gain, adolescents experiencing sudden growth spurts and body builders.
Regener8 Skin Regenerator has been formulated to help improve the appearance of stretch marks, but as stretch marks are permanent, Regener8 Skin Regenerator will not remove them.
Wrinkled skin related to ageing is essentially caused by the weakening of the collagen and elastin in the skin. Regener8 Skin Regenerator contains various ingredients that help to improve skins elasticity, making it softer, smoother and suppler, and in doing so, helps lessen the appearance of wrinkled skin. Additionally, Regener8 Skin Regenerator moisturises skin to help improve the tone, texture and appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
The top of the skin has an invisible oil layer which functions as a barrier to prevent moisture from escaping. In dry climates this layer is often unable to prevent moisture escaping, and so too much is drawn out of the skin. Daily bathing or showering may worsen skin dehydration by removing the lipid layer due to the astringent effects of soap and water. Regener8 Skin Regenerator complements the skin's natural oil layer, aiding to restore its barrier function of holding moisture.
Results will vary from person to person:
Collagen is a key protein in the body that ensures the cohesion, elasticity and regeneration of skin, cartilage and bone. There are different types of Collagen that are found in specific places in the body. Peptan™ are type-I collagen peptides and have the same amino-acid content as that found in human bones and skin, containing 97% protein. This is how Peptan™ promotes younger looking skin, improves the skins moisture level, improves skin smoothness, prevents formation of deep-winkles and alongside Rosemary, improves skin suppleness.
Seaweed is packed with vitamins & minerals that help repair damaged skin cells. The B vitamins within seaweed possess anti-inflammatory properties that are helpful for rosacea. Healthy skin needs vitamins A and C, and seaweed is a good source of both of these vitamins. Trace minerals are also present in seaweed, and help to repair damaged skin cells.
One of the symptoms of a deficiency of Omega-3 fatty acids is dry skin. Seaweed is a good source of DHA, one of the omega-3 fatty acids that help skin stay elastic. Aloe Vera, Calendula, Lavender and Chamomile all provide anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties that promote skin healing.
Minerals Zinc & MSM and Vitamins A, C & E work to enhance collagen production, increase skin elasticity and reduce scar or stretch mark visibility via their antioxidant properties which enable them to minimise damage to skin cells caused by free radicals.
