We’re increasingly aware of the need to counter the daily assault on our bodies by cell-damaging free radicals. Certainly, our body benefits from a diet rich in antioxidants which fight these unstable compounds, but Crème Pro™ Protector delivers these benefits right where we can see them – on our skin.
Used as a nourishing day cream, Crème Pro™ Protector defends facial skin damage wrought by key factors in skin aging – sunlight and pollution. We all know the signs of facial skin aging: wrinkles, dry and dull skin, and dark circles under the eyes. Crème Pro prevents the development of these forms of visible aging by defending these delicate layers of skin from invading free radicals – a by-product of a process called oxidation.
When oxidation begins, unstable compounds that can damage or mutate our cells DNA are produced. These are known as free radicals, and why Crème Pro Protector is so effective at breaking this chain of events is down to the five key antioxidants that inhibit this reaction and therefore, significantly lessen damage to skin cells. This means fewer wrinkles, better skin elasticity and greater protection from cell-damaging toxins.
These are all known antioxidants that are available individually in supplemental form, but the combination of beneficial enzymes and vitamins means that a 360 attack on free radical damage on the skin can occur in one topical form.
Resveratrol – a much talked about antioxidant due to its relatively recent discovery in red wine (from red grape skins) and its power as an all-round cell-protector. It’s now known to be found in certain other fruit skins, but by finding one of nature’s most potent antioxidants and concentrating the extract, it’s really come to the fore. Resveratrol not only breaks down existing free radicals, but it also prevents future formation.
Astaxanthin – another antioxidant that’s been making waves due to its status a free radical fighter, Astaxanthin provides protection against UV irradiation and general genetic changes in cells’ DNA resulting from sunlight exposure.
Idebenone - protecting the skin from UV irradiation and oxidative damage caused by pollution, Idebenone has a chemical structure similar to Coenzyme Q10 and works in much the same way but is an even more potent and effective antioxidant. It’s involved in ATP bio energy cell production and is an excellent allround skin protector and rejuvenator.
Ascorbyl Palmitate – a fat-soluble form of vitamin C that’s not only a powerful antioxidant; ascorbyl palmitate can enhance vitamin E activity and even regenerate vitamin E. By being fat-soluble, ascorbyl palmitate can incorporate itself into cell membranes – residing to protect in the longer term. It also works as an anti-inflammatory – a key when reducing irritation in comparable skin creams.
Hyaluronic acid – also known as hyaluronan, this antioxidant is a vital component of skin naturally – it creates elasticity and repairs skin.
Together, the result is a reduction of free radical damage and by extension fewer wrinkles, less dry skin and healthier skin – in reality, and appearance.
Antioxidants are so called because they inhibit the oxidation process. A process caused by exposure to sunlight (even in cool countries) and pollution in our immediate environment (from our air, water, or food) oxidation is damaging to our cells as it produces free radicals. These are unstable compounds that can alter our cells DNA and cause premature cell death.
Essentially, oxidation is a chemical reaction where electrons or hydrogen is transferred. This transference causes chain reactions within the cell, and this is where antioxidants ‘step-in’ to stop the chain reaction, mopping up the intermediates in the process – they are oxidised harmlessly.
Proper nutrition is important when it comes to getting all the antioxidants we need for our body to benefit. What are increasingly being used to ensure we get the maximum defence against free radicals are antioxidant-rich supplements. For targeted benefits were we can see them, and where we need them, it makes sense to harness the power in a skin cream. This is a first-line of defence and one that can make a useful difference to the way our body deals with pathogens.
Crème Pro can be used in the same way as any other day cream. After cleaning the face normally, it can be thinly applied, avoiding the soft skin nearest the eyes. It gets to work immediately – cleansing the skins layers and protecting from toxins using the power of a formidable quintet of antioxidants.
This protective action strengthens the skin cells, reduces fine lines and improves the appearance of the skin.
For complete skin protection from damaging free radicals, and smoother, healthier skin, add Crème Pro Protector into your daily skin care regime.
