Why It Works: Somaluxe Moisturizer
The vitamins and antioxidants the Somaluxe Moisturizer act as free-radical scavengers to protect against wrinkles. It accomplishes two things:
- it replenishes moisture to maintain skin tone,
- contains antioxidants that protect against aging. Here are the top five ingredients found in the Somaluxe Moisturize and why they are important:
Palmitoyl Triepeptide-3 is a peptide that imitates the skin's ability to produce collagen. It is a naturally-occurring substance that stimulates cellular growth. Wrinkles occur because of a lack of collagen packing at the dermis layer of the skin. Collagen decreases as a person ages. This collagen-synthesis booster activates the growth factor in the epidermis thereby removing wrinkles and improving skin tone. The skin also becomes firmer and able to retain moisture better.
Studies have proven palmitoyl tripeptide-3 possesses the ability to minimize and alter any type of wrinkles. In a blind study involving 15 women, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-3 was applied around the eye area for four weeks. The results showed there was a 39% decrease in wrinkle depth and a 17% decrease in overall skin roughness.
Vitamin C carries out a number of different duties for the skin. For one, it is essential for the synthesis of collagen. Vitamin C also provides moisture to the skin. A feature unique to vitamin C is its brightening effect. Vitamin C can also speed the healing of scars or other skin scrapes.
Coconut oil is very beneficial for the skin. It is full of anti-aging antioxidants and moisturizes the dermis to promote collagen. Using coconut oil in a moisturizer will ensure clean skin because it is rich in lauric acid. This substance is antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal. Coconut oil is best used for those who have skin that is not very greasy or oily.
Touted as a super food for the skin, beeswax contains fatty acids, hydrocarbons, and propolis among other substances. Beeswax is a very effective moisturizer that absorbs into the skin quickly to keep skin soft. Functioning as a natural humectant, beeswax attracts water to the skin. Its texture is water-resistant. This allows beeswax to act as a protective barrier for irritated skin.
Beeswax is non-allergenic and non-toxic. Antibacterial and germicidal, beeswax naturally shields skin from airborne allergies. It also contains vitamin A which helps support cell reconstruction.
Hyaluronic acid is a powerful anti-aging ingredient. A moisturizing humectant that is naturally found in the skin, this acid works to give skin a sturdy texture. The highest levels of hyalronic acid are found in newborn children, but slowly decrease with age. This is why it is necessary to recharge the skin with this artificial substance.
