The human skin is an incredible biological system that serves as the first line of defence against external factors.
However, environmental factors such as pollution, UV radiation, and lifestyle choices like smoking and poor nutrition can accelerate the skin's natural aging process. This process is known as extrinsic aging and can lead to fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and other signs of skin damage.
Thankfully, advances in skincare formulations have led to the development of powerful ingredients that can help combat the effects of extrinsic aging. One such group of ingredients are marine botanical extracts, which have been found to have unique properties that benefit the skin.
Marine botanical extracts are derived from plants that grow in the ocean and can include ingredients such as seaweed, kelp, and algae.
These plants are rich in nutrients and minerals, including vitamins A, C, and E, which can help nourish and protect the skin. Additionally, marine botanical extracts contain polysaccharides, which have been found to help improve the skin's hydration and elasticity.
Another powerful ingredient from the same source are marine peptides. Peptides are short chains of amino acids that can help stimulate collagen production in the skin. Collagen is a protein that gives the skin its structure and elasticity. As we age, collagen production declines, contributing towards the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. By boosting collagen production, these peptides can help reduce the signs of aging.
Antioxidants such as Astaxanthin and various Vitamins can help protect the skin against oxidative stress caused by environmental factors. Astaxanthin is a carotenoid found in microalgae. Advanced formulators make sure their source of this ingredient is sustainable and not harmful to the environment. This powerful antioxidant has been found to be more effective than other carotenoids at reducing inflammation and oxidative stress in the skin.
By combining marine botanical extracts, peptides, and antioxidants like astaxanthin, advanced skincare formulations can provide a powerful defence against extrinsic aging of the skin. These ingredients work together to nourish, protect, and stimulate the skin, helping to reduce the signs of aging and promote a more youthful complexion.
Introducing Kalōnology's Advanced Skin Recovery Serum:
This product is designed to assist the skin recover from over exposure to UVA&B rays, wind, cold and the effects of blue light and HVAC's or airconditioners. This unique serum is specifically formulated to repair and restore damaged skin. It contains a powerful combination of Perfluorodecalin and Perfluorohexane, which are liquid oxygen compounds, along with Vitamin C and E oils at a concentration of 3%.
This serum's liquid oxygen formulation is heavier than water and penetrates the skin's epidermis quickly. This process delivers oxygen and neutralises carbon dioxide, optimising skin metabolism and speeding up skin renewal from deep within the dermis layers. This results in a more youthful and radiant appearance.
In addition, Kalōnology's Advanced Skin Recovery Serum is rich in Palmitoleic Acid extracted from Nannochloropsis Algae. This ingredient delivers optimum levels of Omega 3 and 7 to protect against oxidative stress on DNA and repair cell membranes damaged by environmental and other aging factors.
The formula also includes Astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant extracted from Haematococcus Algae. Astaxanthin is 65 times more potent than Ascorbic Acid, 800 times more efficient than Co-Q10 in recycling Vitamin C, and 550 times more powerful than Green Tea extracts. The formula also contains 2% Vitamin C esters.
When used alone, Kalōnology's liquid oxygen formulation instantly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by 15%. However, when combined with other products in the Pro-Age Marine range, this serum's effectiveness grows to 32% after 30 days, and after 90 days, a 57% improvement is observed.
