Harmful effects of "urban stress" on your skin

In the modern world, our lives are becoming increasingly hectic. The lifestyle of active people, especially of those living in highly populated urban areas, may lead to unexpected skin problems induced by stress and pollution. 

Urban skin is attacked daily by gas pollution – sulfur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide and carbon dioxide, all cytotoxic gases which generate free radicals and damage cellular membranes – while micro-particles – created during the combustion of oil and fuel, as much as from home and industrial dust – cover the skin’s surface with an invisible film that can dull and “poison” it! Constant exposure results in dullness, dryness, fine lines and over-pigmentation, leading, over time, to a loss of tone and firmness.

Good… Better… Best

No skincare company can rest on its laurels in a time when skin faces its biggest challenges yet from climatic change and environmental stress.

According to the World Health Organization, 54% of today’s global population is urbanized (compared to just 34% in 1960). As more and more of us live in urban environments, the awareness of the impact of these surroundings on our skin becomes more apparent as does the need for new effective skincare products, adapted to counteract these new threats.

For over two decades, Cell Shock products have passed the test of time to become cosmetic classics, offering the “best” mix there is of active ingredients in innovative forms to tackle the physical manifestations of aging skin.

And the Best Just Got Better!

Cell Shock has improved its “best” Lifting Serum formulas by taking them to the next frontier – while retaining their original actives – the serums now incorporate botanical biotech ingredients to provide effective shielding from pollution and environmental toxicity.

Lifting Serums Evolve to Tackle the Threats of “Urban Stress”

Cell Shock’s classic Face Lifting Complex and Eye Zone Lifting Complex now include an URBAN-DETOX COMPLEX in addition to their signature skin-revitalizing formula to answer the needs of 21st century skin; enhancing brightness and clarity.

Urban Detox Complex – Combines the Best in Stress Defence

Moringa oleifera is an exotic tree that grows in tropical and sub-tropical areas. Locals have crushed its seeds for centuries to release their remarkable capacity to purify water. Scientific research has identified that a micro-protein present in the seeds is responsible for this purifying competence and, once isolated for cosmetic use, grants an entirely original capacity: protecting skin against particle pollution. Plus this new ingredient facilitates the removal of asphyxiating micro-particles coming from the environment. This means that particles landing on the skin, no longer “glue” to the surface, making them easily removable during traditional facial cleansing routines. And, even more astonishing, it has proved itself in tests to provide a skin protection effect against cigarette and cigar smoke! 

This is combined with Nasturtium stem extract which mimics in skin how the plant metabolizes the same protein as a “glue” to seal plant wounds and allow plant tissue regeneration, supplying oxygen to the skin to aid tissue recovery.

Is your make up removal routine aging you?

A UK survey reported in the Daily Mail newspaper revealed that a third of British women sleep in their make up twice a week. Scary but true, this practice will eventually age you!

“Not removing your make up leads to an accumulation of environmental pollutants on your skin,” according to a local dermatologist, “this drives the generation of free radicals which contribute to the breakdown of collagen and elastin, which are necessary for skin to remain youthful. These structures naturally deteriorate with age, so we don’t really want to do anything that might speed up this process causing wrinkles and loss of plumpness.”

However, even if you religiously cleanse, tone and moisturize, you might still be doing harm if you are not carrying out your routine in a skin-friendly way.

 

Be Kind to your Eyes

Leaving mascara on overnight, will not only lead to clogged pores around your eyelashes which could lead to infections, such as the formation of styes, but will also dry out your eyelashes themselves, making them brittle and more likely to break off.

Instead of rubbing and tugging at this delicate area to get rid of stubborn make up, apply your remover and leave it in place while you clean your teeth. This will allow it to break down your eye make up, so it comes away with just a gentle wipe, thus avoiding the friction of rubbing. An added bonus: no more smudges under your eyes in the morning.

 

Avoid Left Overs

A quick wipe over with some cleanser is not enough to clear all your foundation. If you are going to do the job, do it right and cleanse twice. Otherwise, you could still be leaving a slight layer of powder or foundation on your skin. This barrier will prevent your favorite moisturizer from being able to do its job as its chances of it being properly absorbed are reduced.

Leaving make up on prevents our skin from undertaking its daily, natural exfoliation process, leading to a dull, lifeless complexion. And of course, if you are prone to spots, you are inviting a break-out.

And it’s not only those using make up who should follow a cleansing routine. Even without make up our face builds up a layer of dirt from sweat and pollution during the day. If you leave this where it is, it will block pores, resulting in the same problems described above.

 

Lip-tiscious

Leaving on lipstick leads to dry, chapped, cracked lips with sore broken edges. The skin on your lips has one of least amounts of oil glands in the body and leaving the lips caked in make up will only make them dryer, so don’t forget to include them when moisturizing your face.

 

The Finishing Touches

Cleansing is only the beginning. Follow up with a toner, which will not only remove any leftover cleanser from your skin, it will help your skin’s pH balance return to normal, and promote a smooth and healthy feel to your skin.

Choose a moisturizer suited to your skin type – even oily skins need this finishing touch. Moisturizers don’t just moisturize. They improve your skin’s hydration by forming a protective barrier that prevents the evaporation of water and increases the water content of the epidermis, both important aids in keeping our skin feeling smooth and looking plumper.

Swiss line – Here to Help

Water Shock is a paraben-free, silicon-free and allergen-free collection of cleansers, toners and an eye makeup remover, developed so consumers can select their cleanser or toner according to their skin type and texture preference. The products can easily be used in tandem with products in the Cell Shock, Force Vitale, Ageless Purity and Anti-Redness collections. However, Cell Shock White has its own set of unique cleansers and toners.

Introducing Facial Essences

Facial essences (or essences-in-lotion) were, until recent times, an exclusivity of Asian skincare; skin-softening lotions that either replace western “toners” or can be added to a skincare regime to provide an extra level of hydration. Western toners contribute to the cleansing process by further helping to remove foreign substances while restoring the skin to its natural pH balance. Asian facial essences take this process a step further by preparing and conditioning the skin, leaving the top layer soft and ready for a better penetration of further products. Think of an essence as a kind of toner that as well as removing the impurities your cleanser may leave behind, imparts nutrients and hydration into your skin to help it better absorb serum and moisturizer. This is definitely taking a good thing and making it better.

Who Are They For?

Anyone can incorporate an essence into their skincare regime. And those who are going for a glowing almost no make-up finish will find the added hydration is a perfect way to get the best from this look. Everyone knows about the benefits of drinking water for clear healthy skin, so think of essences as a direct source of hydration. Healthy skin has a cell renewal rate of around 28 days and the potent actives in essences aid in that turnover and even help to speed it up.

How To Use an Essence?

Since they are a liquid, you may be tempted to apply an essence to your face with a cotton pad in the same way you would a toner, but doing this would be a waste of product. Instead, splash a little onto your hands and delicately tap it into your cheeks, forehead and chin. Tapping it into your skin will allow quicker absorption. This stage is usually followed by serum and moisturizer to seal in the goodness. The tapping application provides the added advantage of promoting circulation, so expect to emerge from the bathroom rosy-cheeked and glowing.

Do You Have Sensitive Skin?

In a recent survey carried out in the UK and US, over 50% of women and 38% of men questioned about how they felt about their skin, answered that they considered it to be “sensitive”. However none of those who responded claimed to suffer from any specific skin disorder.

Skin sensitivity is no longer only a concern for people with a medical condition, or believed to be caused by products we come in contact with, it is now seen to be a cause-effect symptom of being under attack from a harsher, ever-more polluted environment; a part of the zeitgeist. People feel their skin is more sensitive and reactive as a result of the stress that modern living puts it under.

Added to this, more frequent extreme weather conditions and a knowledge of the ravages that sun exposure can impart on the skin, has led to an increase in the use of traditional sun protection factors in many products. However instead of bringing peace of mind, delicate facial skin can become sensitized by chemical-based ingredients which then tend to irritate rather than bring solace.

Swiss line have recognised and responded to the growing demand for effective relief in this area by formulating two products to de-stress, sooth, calm, counter redness and protect sensitive skin.

You… Only A Younger Looking You!

There is a lot we can do these days to look younger and healthier than our chronological age. Many of these things, for example, exercise and diet, as well as fashion, hair and make-up choices, create a “smoke and mirrors” effect … an illusion. But, to really look younger, you need to target the part of your body that ages the fastest – your eyes – with the most potent anti-aging ingredients and the latest technology. The skin around your eyes is the thinnest and most fragile skin on your body, making it particularly susceptible to the signs of aging – wrinkles, loss of firmness, uneven skin tone and under-eye puffiness – so a targeted, strategic effort is essential.

Swiss line’s Cell Shock Age Intelligence Youth-Inducing Eye Cream, a sister product to Cell Shock Age Intelligence Youth-Inducing Cream, combines a potent pharmaceutical-grade extract, botanical stem cells and molecular technology which work in synchronicity to dramatically transform the eye area.

Why Do You Need a Collagen Serum?

The loss of collagen  associated with the onset of age  is the main cause of wrinkles, loss of muscle tone and sagging skin. Using a collagen serum, however, can help reverse the situation, making you look much younger.

The best collagen serums, like Cell Shock 360º Anti-Wrinkle Serum Triple Collagen Complex and Cell Shock 360º Anti-Wrinkle Eye Zone Serum, tackle the problem of collagen loss from the inside-out and outside-in. The Cell Shock serums have a triple collagen complex, offering three different paths to collagen refurbishment by: (1) increasing the skin’s own collagen production, (2) strengthening it; and (3) safeguarding it from depletion. These collagen serums provide a visible line-filling effect by infusing dry skin with intense moisture and lasting resilience on the inner and outer layers of the skin.

Sculpting Without a Scalpel

500 years ago Leonardo Da Vinci commented that when drawing portraits, the facial shape was the most important indicator of youthful attractiveness. He favored the proportions of the V-shaped face, as seen in his renowned painting of the Mona Lisa. Da Vinci's aesthetic preference has since been reinforced by researchers who have concluded that the v-shaped facial contours, typically seen on famous celebrities such as Kate Moss or Madonna, are the most beautiful.

Unfortunately, not all of us are lucky enough to have been born with the picture-perfect V-shaped jawline, and even if we were, aging can cause the skin to sag, giving the face the appearance of a broader base. But, no need to worry, Swiss line's newest, highly innovative skincare product, Cell Shock Overnight “V” Mask, can help you rectify the situation. Comprised of the Sculpting Patch-Mask and Lifting Infusion-Mask, the two-part Overnight “V” Mask addresses facial architecture and volume like no other anti-aging product. It acts not only as a shape transforming facial mask, lifting the facial contours where needed and sculpting where puffiness or sagging has compromised the oval shape of the face, but also as a night cream. Welcome to the new era of facial architecture!

Luxury Skincare... What is it All About?

Luxury skincare is not only about decadent textures, highly coveted, precious ingredients, and a price tag to go along with all of that. It is also about choice. The luxury of choice.

Many so called luxury skincare brands offer different collections and countless products, however, very few offer consumers a choice when it comes to products with the identical anti-aging efficacy but distinctly different textures. This choice enables consumers to respond to their skin condition, seasonal needs and personal preferences. Swiss line offers its customers this choice.

The Swiss luxury skincare brand, known for its rich cellular therapy heritage, technologically-advanced, precious formulations and remarkable innovation, offers: Total-Lift Light Cream, Total-Lift Rich Cream, Total-Lift Very Rich Cream, and Total-Lift Overnight Cream  three different products offering the same impressive results: firmer, smoother, more radiant-looking skin, but appealing to distinctly different consumer lifestyles and preferences.

What is the Definition of Cellular Skincare?

In the past, cellular skincare products were known to contain cellular animal extracts - the placenta, amniotic liquid, amniotic cells, umbilical cord blood, etc. Animal extracts were chosen for their key role in tissue development, regeneration and cellular renewal. Swiss line originally contained stabilized cellular animal extracts together with Pentacare-Na, a plant-based complex, in their renowned signature ingredient, Cellactel. However, Swiss line, in addition to almost all of the authentic Swiss skincare brands now no longer use animal extracts due to ethical reasons, as well as the incredible, high-tech advances that have recently been made in the science of skincare.

In the last decade or so, there has been a tremendous amount of research in the field of biotechnological and botanical extracts. In fact these super-star ingredients, when paired with retinoids, peptides, antioxidants, vitamins, and more, are now the latest tool in the fight against aging skin as they offer highly sophisticated transport systems, such as liposomes, encapsulated retinol, micro hydra sponges, etc. that deliver them directly to the cells. So, cellular skincare now refers to ingredients that deeply penetrate the cells, and not necessarily ingredients that contain live cellular extracts.

Swiss-made Cosmetics... What is the Truth?

Due to Switzerland's excellent reputation for reliable, high-quality products, both domestically and abroad, there are a growing number of cosmetics brands claiming to be Swiss-made. The wrongful use of the Swiss designation is having a very negative impact on the authentic Swiss-made cosmetics, like Swiss line, resulting in a loss of their reputation, and a dilution of their value.

Agnès von Beust, lawyer for Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property explains that the name “Switzerland”, as well as designations such as “Swiss”, “Swiss quality”, “Made in Switzerland, “Swiss-Made” or others containing the name “Swiss”, can only be used for products manufactured in Switzerland. According to the actual legal practice, there are two conditions that must be fulfilled for goods to be legally labeled as being of Swiss origin:

  • the Swiss portion of the manufacturing cost* must be at least 50% (*included herein are basic materials, semi-finished products, accessories, product-related wages and manufacturing overheads excluding distribution costs)
  • the essential manufacturing process must have taken place in Switzerland.

Swiss Skincare... Is It Really The Best?

Many people associate great skincare brands with Switzerland and place tremendous trust in the products that are made in Switzerland. But, is Swiss skincare really the best?
 
In Switzerland, unlike other countries in the world, skincare lines have emerged as a natural evolution of the developments in the medical and pharmaceutical fields. This has, from the start, bestowed Swiss skincare products with technically advanced ingredients and a results-oriented focus, making Swiss skincare amongst the best skincare in the world. In other countries skincare has often evolved based on fragrance, color cosmetics, or fashion.

How to Select the Best Whitening Skincare Products

The best whitening skincare products on the market combine a variety of whitening/lightening actives. Two whitening ingredients to be on the lookout for include: Vitamin C and Licorice extract.

Vitamin C increases the levels of glutathione – a tripeptide that controls numerous important cellular functions, and is also a melanin inhibitor, controlling hyperpigmentation and reducing dark spots.

Licorice Extract, an anti-inflammatory, contains glabridin, a skin bleaching active. Glabridin inhibits pigmentation by preventing tyrosinase activation.

Cell Shock White Whitening Pen L.A.S.E.R. Anti-Spot Complex combines some of the best whitening skincare ingredients in a quasi-drug formula that delivers noticeable results. Containing among other ingredients, MAP-C, innovative molecules of Vitamin C, and bioengineered botanical extracts of Licorice root, the serum-pen effectively tackles age spots and uneven pigmentation that have up until now been resistant to whitening products. You can use the pen applicator directly onto dark spots and over-pigmented areas.

How to Select the Best Anti-aging Serum?

With so many anti-aging serums on the market, it is hard to know which one to select, especially as there is no one size fits all serum. Skin type, product reviews and ingredients, of course, need to be considered. But, an anti-aging serum that boosts collagen production and contains hyaluronic acid is a good starting point.

Swiss line's newest anti-aging serum, Cell Shock 360º Anti-Wrinkle Serum Triple Collagen Complex, provides a visible line-filling effect by infusing dry skin with intense moisture and lasting resilience. Its triple collagen complex offers three different paths to collagen refurbishment by increasing the skin’s own collagen production, strengthening it, and safeguarding it from depletion. In addition to the triple collagen complex, the highly potent anti-aging serum also contains hyaluronic acid, known to improve the skin's density and resilience.

What is the Best Anti-aging Eye Cream?

There are a lot of great eye creams on the market, but, what is the best anti-aging eye cream? Unfortunately, there is no clear answer to this question.

Some would say, Cell Shock Age Intelligence Cellular Dual Eye Cream as the two creams, designed to be used consecutively, help to reduce deep wrinkles and puffiness while fending off environmental damage, plus they can be used after a dermatological procedure or plastic surgery to boost the skin’s restorative capabilities. Others would say, Force Vitale Corrective Eye Moisturizer is the best anti-aging eye cream, because it contains Matrixyl 3000™  known to dramatically reduce the surface area, volume and density of wrinkles while tightening the eye contour area and smoothing out crow’s feet. And then others would still say Force Vitale De-Puffing Eye Moisturizer because the delightful lagoon-green gel effectively tackles dark circles and chronic puffiness, while helping to boost microcirculation. Whatever your choice, you cant go wrong with any of the three as each one can be considered the best anti-aging eye cream depending on your age, skin sensitivity and needs.

What is the Role of Plant Stem Cells in Skincare?

Cells are extracted from blossoms then cultivated in a laboratory to multiply their molecular potency by literally 1,000 times or more. This concentration, not available in a raw state, allows the product to deliver a powerful dose of active ingredients to the consumer.

Why is an Anti-wrinkle Night Cream Important?

An anti-wrinkle night cream is important because while you sleep it works. Anti-wrinkle night creams are designed to moisturize your skin. The products are generally heavier and will not absorb into the skin as quickly as a daily moisturizer. This intensive moisturizing is an important part of keeping your skin looking youthful for a longer period of time.

Swiss line's award-winning Cell Shock Total Lift Overnight Cream is an excellent anti-wrinkle night cream. This purple gel-balm easily absorbed into the skin works overnight to combat the decrease in skin firmness associated with aging. Biotech substances developed from botanical extracts help to enhance cellular renewal, while Bio-activated Resveratrol reduces irritation and stimulates collagen production. Together with Lavender Extract and Cellactel 2 Complex, the skin is left looking and feeling great…even on the days when you haven’t had sufficient sleep.

Looking for an Alternative to Botox?

If you are looking for a non-invasive alternative to Botox to reduce wrinkles, Swiss line's Age Intelligence De-Aging Restorative Complex might be right for you.

Age Intelligence De-Aging Restorative Complex, an alternative to Botox, is a stand-alone product that delivers impressive results on its own, but it is also the ultimate “Botox Buddy” – slowing down the natural breakdown of the results of Botox injections over time, while providing additional anti-aging benefits.

Age Intelligence De-Aging Restorative Complex is a powerful serum that rebalances the skin's self-renewal process to restore the natural protection of the horny layer of the skin, giving it a smoother more even feel. It has been proven to slow down dermal aging by boosting collagen and elastin production to counteract the loss of elasticity. It also modulates the skin`s chronic inflammatory response.

How to Select the Best Anti-Aging Face Cream

Choosing the best anti-aging face cream is a very personal decision. Based on individual skin issues and age, different factors need to be considered. However, that said, anti-aging face creams that contain alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) are known to exfoliate the upper layers of the skin, keep skin bright, and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes, and sun spots. AHA creams can also stimulate the production of collagen and elastin within the skin, to keep skin firm and supple.

Swiss line's Cell Shock Total-Resurface Overnight Cream consists of, among other ingredients, a unique combination of 5 alpha hydroxy acids, one beta hydroxy acid, and keratolitic tripeptides. With this potent array of ingredients, it is considered one of the best anti-aging face creams on the market as it retexturizes and brightens the skin, reduces pores, and provides a remarkable lift by renewing the skin from the “inside-out” and restructuring it from the “outside-in”.

Why are Growth Factors Important in Anti-aging...

Growth factors are important as they improve the health and appearance of sun damaged, aging skin. Scientists are using growth factors as a way to maintain skin's youth. When applied topically to aging skin, growth factors can speed cell turnover, increase skin thickness, and restore luminosity.

Swiss line's Cell Shock 360° Synchronized Time Reversal Program, a one month anti-aging ampoules cure program, contains among other actives, Bio-Mimetic Growth Factors, specifically Fibroblast Growth Factors, which assist in the healing processes, stimulating cell multiplication, as well as the synthesis of collagen and Glycosaminoglycans (one of the three main components of the skin).

Swiss line's Cell Shock 360° Synchronized Time Reversal Program improves firmness, reduces lines and wrinkles, re-establishes the perfect level of hydration, detoxes and maximizes vitality and radiance.

What is Matrixyl 3000™?

Matrixyl 3000 is a relatively new skin care ingredient sometimes promoted as a new and improved version of Matrixyl (a trademark name for the peptide palmitoyl pentapeptide-4). Matrixyl 3000 is a combination of the two peptides, palmitoyl oligopeptide and palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7 that work synergistically to mimic the appearance of broken down collagen, causing your skin to react by producing more collagen, as well as elastin, to prevent and eliminate wrinkles.

Swiss line's Force Vitale Corrective Eye Moisturizer, a lightweight eye cream formulated to dramatically reduce the surface area, volume and density of wrinkles while tightening the eye contour area, contains Matrixyl 3000™.  Thanks to this super skin care ingredient, Force Vitale Corrective Eye Moisturizer reduces wrinkle depth while boosting collagen synthesis. Another potent ingredient in this eye cream is hyaluronic acid, which plumps lines and restores elasticity.

Resveratrol: The Best-loved Anti-aging Molecule

Resveratrol is a natural antioxidant found in high amounts  in red wine and the skins of red grapes. The way in which it banishes wrinkles and enhances firmness can be compared to the regenerating process it conveys on grape vines that allows them to live for up to a century.

Resveratrol has been shown to create denser and firmer skin texture while boosting the life expectancy of the skin cells. It stimulates cellular renewal, enhances the skin’s support system (collagen and elastin) and improves the multiplication of fibroblasts.

Cell Shock's award-winning Total-Lift Creams all contain bio-activated Resveratrol. Together with other key actives, it increases the skin's antioxidant activity, boosts cellular metabolism and stimulates collagen production.

Try out this natural wonder ingredient for yourself!

The Fight Against Skin Dehydration

Young or old, we all know that feeling of having skin that is too dry for comfort, it feels like it is one size too small for your face and it's often itchy. Dehydrated skin can be caused by a variety of culprits including UV radiation, wind, pollution and of course the natural aging process. But regardless of the cause, the end result is the same: a loss of the natural moisturizing factor (NMF). So, what can you do to reverse the situation?
 

Aqua-Vitale Cream 24 hydrates and nourishes the skin while toning and comforting it. Most importantly, it ensures that water is not only drawn into the skin, but remains there thanks to Salicornia herbacea, a hardy coastal plant that develops water and ammonium ion transporters.

Retinol: The Ultimate Anti-aging Ingredient

Retinol, a derivative of vitamin A, was initially used to get rid of acne, blackheads and dead cell build-up in pores, but later it was found to have incredibly effective anti-aging properties. Retinol is now known to successfully reduce fine lines, smooth skin texture and help normalize pigmentation without any negative side effects, unlike Retin-A, the prescription version of retinol. As a result, more and more skincare brands are incorporating retinol in their anti-aging lotions and moisturizers.

Swiss line's Cell Shock Youth-Inducing PM-Repair Booster is a night-time only pre-treatment lotion that boosts the skin's repair metabolism. A controlled release of retinol, enclosed in cyclodextrin, increases cell turnover and exfoliation and stimulates collagen synthesis with a consequent improvement in the skin appearance. Why not give it a try?

What's So Great about Hyaluronic Acid?

Many people believe that hyaluronic acid is the "key to the fountain of youth". As we get older, the skin tends to dry out. Unable to hold onto moisture well, the skin's layers begin to thin and droop, leading to increased fine lines and wrinkles, as well as a more translucent appearance. Hyaluronic acid helps your skin obtain and hold onto the moisture it needs to remain firm and youthful in appearance. The best way to describe the action of a hyaluronic acid product is "plumping" as it smoothes the skin's surface for a radiant, dewy look, while encouraging the skin to heal itself.

Some of Swiss line's best selling products incorporate hyaluronic acid:

Cell Shock Face Lifting Complex II

Cell Shock Lip Zone Corrective Complex

Cell Shock Cellular Eye Mask Complex

Cell Shock Eye Zone Transforming Mask

Cell Shock Overnight V Mask

Stopping the Vicious Cycle of Cellular Toxicity

On a day-to-day basis, the skin is exposed to a barrage of toxins in our food, water, and the air. These toxins are absorbed into our bodies and accumulate rapidly in the organs and build up in the blood. Once there, they can kick-start a vicious cycle where our body's healthy cells fight to get rid of these toxins, and in doing so, produce further toxins – a lethal residue of metal components that our bodies absorb and cannot eliminate. Over time, more and more cells produce harmful chemicals, and more and more and more cells are damaged, resulting in aging, and ultimately, death.

Swiss line's Cell Shock 360° Synchronized Time Reversal Program and 360º Anti-Wrinkle Eye Zone Serum combat cellular toxicity via an innovative new botanical skincare ingredient: phytochelatins, to chelate the toxins, ingeniously paired with proven anti-aging technologies, including peptides, growth-factors, skin-like substances like collagen, hyaluronic acid and GAGs.

Your Botox Buddy

The future of the beauty business is a combination of cosmetics, injectables, plastic surgery and nutrition. Swiss line by Dermalab, an innovative, cellular anti-aging Swiss skincare brand, has developed its products to work not only on their own, but also in conjunction with invasive skincare procedures.

Age Intelligence De-Aging Restorative Complex is a stand-alone product that delivers impressive results on its own, but it is also the ultimate “Botox Buddy” – slowing down the natural breakdown of the results of Botox injections over time, while providing additional anti-aging benefits. Botox acts by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to paralyze facial muscles, and in turn flattens wrinkles. Age Intelligence De-Aging Restorative Complex, a powerful serum, rebalances the skin's self-renewal process to restore the natural protection of the horny layer of the skin, giving it a smoother, more even feel. It has been proven to slow down dermal aging by boosting collagen and elastin production to counteract the loss of elasticity. It also modulates the skin's chronic inflammatory response.
