Is it Possible to Regenerate the Skin Around-the-Clock?
Earlier this month we introduced our new ChronoPeptide A and it generated quite a response and some questions. So I figured it was a good time to write about some of its ingredients and benefits.
What makes this pro-youth formula different? What are some of the notable ingredients and what exactly do they do? How does this formula differ from the others in our retinal family? Read on to find out.
Stimulating Cell Turnover 24/7
A big part of what sets this formula apart is its ability to activate the circadian genes, which is essentially our internal clock. The circadian clock operates on a 24-hour cycle and prompts our bodies and cells to prepare for certain conditions and times of day. An example of this is the release of melatonin as we near bedtime. In our skin, circadian genes trigger our cutaneous cells to strengthen their defenses during the day (to protect against UV rays and other free radicals), and regenerate at night.
Sounds like they’ve got quite a hefty responsibility right? They do, and to make their job even tougher, there are a number of factors that disrupt this process such as fatigue, stress, and over exposure to the sun, to name a few. These disruptions can lead to premature aging, which is where the chono-peptide comes in.
Chrono-peptide works to stimulate circadian genes for DNA repair, as well as resynchronize the rhythm and optimize vitamin D activity for powerful antioxidant and anti-carcinogen benefits. During the day it activates our cell’s natural defenses, and at night it stimulates the cell’s ability to regenerate and detoxify.
The other standout ingredient in this 24-hour pro-youth formula is the new encapsulated retinal. It is encapsulated to enhance its performance and reduce skin irritation, while still delivering potent regenerating and anti-inflammatory benefits, making it useful for even sensitive skin.
Rebuilding the Skin
The second component to this formula is its rebuilding properties, which we know is essential to rejuvenation. In addition to the chrono-peptide there is a B vitamin complex, cloud berry (rubus chamaemorus) seed oil, mangosteen (garcinia mangostana), and Indian gingseng (Withania somnifera) root extract.
The form of B vitamin complex used is niacinamide, which is derived from rice bran. It encourages hydration and collagen synthesis, as well as reduces inflammation and creates a brighter tone. Cloud berry is a berry rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants. It works to detoxify leaving the skin bright and radiant.
You’ve likely heard of mangosteen, the “super fruit” known for its potent natural healing compounds. It provides antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antibacterial support. Last, but not least, the Indian ginseng works to revitalize stressed cells and reactivates the cell’s development process. It also prevents trans-epidermal water loss, leaving skin well hydrated.
