To keep skin looking youthful, it is important to choose products with ingredients that replenish and repair the vital skin proteins and other components lost due to aging and lifestyle. Marine collagen, peptides, retinol and Vitamin C are the best ingredients to fight wrinkles due to their hydrating, replenishing, stimulating and smoothing benefits.
Marine Collagen effectively replenishes lost or damaged collagen, smoothes lines and wrinkles, hydrates and maintains healthy skin. Pevonia® uses marine collagen from the White Teleost fish, a humectant used for its water binding and moisturizing properties. It contains the most important amino acids: glycine, proline, hydroxylysine and hidroxyproline, and can be found in the Hydrating Cleanser; Hydrating Toner; Intensifier Collagen & Myoxy-Caviar®; Marine Collagen Cream; Eye Contour; Rejuvenating Dry Skin Cream; “C” Évolutive Eye Gel; Timeless Eye Contour; Stem Cells Phyto-Elite® Intensive Serum; Stem Cells Phyto-Elite® Intensive Cream; Micro-Retinol® Essential Moisturizer; lumafirm® Eye Contour and YouthRenew™ Tinted Cream SPF 30.
Peptides hydrate and smooth wrinkles by increasing production of collagen. Pevonia uses marine-derived collagen polypeptides and pure amino-acid molecular chains that penetrate to the deepest layers of the skin to effectively smooth wrinkles and deeply hydrate.
Pevonia’s plant-based palmitoyl oligopeptides are a small chain of amino acids linked together and attached to a fatty acid that stimulate the dermal matrix to produce more protein, to effectively smooth and rejuvenate the skin. Palmitoyl tetrapeptide-3 and palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7 are comprised of four amino acids with palmitic acid attached to the peptide chain to enhance penetration. These plant-based peptides inhibit glycation-inducing interleukins that cause collagen breakdown and lines.
Oligopeptides from okra (hydrolyzed hibiscus esculentus) seed extract have humectant and neuro-relaxant effects on the skin. These natural peptides gradually relax the muscles responsible for repetitive expressions like smiling or frowning and smooth wrinkles without any side effects. Double-blind clinical trials of hibiscus esculentus proved deep wrinkles diminished by 48 percent after 3 weeks of use, with even greater results seen after eight weeks of continued morning and evening use.
Peptides can be found in Pevonia’s Intensifier – Collagen & Myoxy-Caviar®; Intensifier – Elastin & Sorghum; Intensifier d.n.a. & Diacetyl Boldine; Timeless Eye Contour; Stem Cells Phyto-Elite® Intensive Cream; lumafirm® Repair Cream – Lift and Glow and lumablanc® Cream.
Vitamin A (Retinol, Micro-Retinol® or retinyl palmitate) is one of the best ingredients to counteract signs of aging. Retinol is an antioxidant and emollient, which fights skin-damaging free radicals, restores moisture balance and has a resurfacing effect. It enhances cellular performance, speeds cell turnover, reorganizes skin cells and normalizes enzymatic activity. Retinol strengthens and stimulates collagen production, which helps support the skin, smooth fine lines and wrinkles and even out skin tone.
To counteract the light and air sensitivity of retinol, Pevonia developed highly stable and effective forms of retinol for the following products: Micro-Retinol® line (Micro-Retinol® Essential Foaming Cleanser; Micro-Retinol® Essential Toner; Micro-Retinol® Essential Serum; Micro-Retinol® Essential Moisturizer); Timeless Repair Cream; Stem Cells Phyto-Elite® Intensive Cream; lumablanc® Cream. Retinyl palmitate can be found in the Rejuvenating Dry Skin Cream, Vitaminic Concentrate, Évolutive Eye Cream, Timeless Repair Cream and Timeless Eye Contour.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant with multiple anti-aging benefits. It fights damaging free radicals and stimulates production of collagen, elastin and other vital skin components to produce and repair the skin, which plumps and smoothes fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C also strengthens capillary walls, which transport blood, vitamins and nutrients to the skin and enhances availability of iron, which is vital for skin oxygenation and youthful, healthy skin. Vitamin C evens skin tone as it reduces production of pigment by inhibiting tyrosinase, the enzyme responsible for producing pigment. Lastly, it provides extra protection against UV rays and protects other antioxidants and fatty acids from damage.
Note: Vitamin C must be consumed and applied topically. The best forms of Vitamin C include ascorbyl glucoside, MAP C, THDA (tetrahexyl decyl ascorbate) and ascorbyl glucoside, which are found in the following Pevonia anti-aging products: “C” Complexe with Oxyzomes; lumablanc® Cream; “C” Évolutive Eye Gel; Rejuvenating Dry Skin Cream; Timeless Repair Cream; Age-Defying Myoxy-Caviar® Balm; Stem Cells Phyto-Elite® Intensive Serum and Hydrating Sunscreen SPF 30.
