An advanced antioxidant that fights free radicals, Alpha Lipoic Acid is an important component in our anti-aging products. Free radicals are the result of oxidation, a naturally-occurring side effect of cellular metabolism in the body, and are believed to destroy tissue on the cellular level through a destabilizing chain reaction – accelerating the aging process. Free radicals occur naturally, but exposure to harmful environmental factors, such as pollution, sun exposure, or lifestyle conditions such as smoking cigarettes, can increase their production. Antioxidants such as Alpha Lipoic Acid bind to these free radicals helping to inhibit their spread. Alpha Lipoic Acid is unique since it’s an antioxidant and it also assists the body’s production of Vitamin C, one of our naturally-occurring antioxidants.
• Improves the appearance of skin tone and texture by fighting the free-radical damage that can leave skin looking dull
• Reduces the appearance of puffiness by regulating the production of nitric oxide, which controls blood flow to the skin
• Decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by improving the overall health of the skin
Dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE) is often called “facelift in a jar” by skin care specialists, because it helps firm and tighten the skin. With regular use DMAE will give skin a more defined, youthful appearance.
DMAE, a component of cell membranes, is also one of the substances used by the body to make the neurotransmitter molecule acetylcholine. DMAE’s firming effects are believed to involve the signaling of acetylcholine in the skin.
The Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C Ester & DMAE hand & body lotion is my #1 favorite for anti-aging anti-oxidant skin care & moisturization. It also is PERFECT for soothing a sunburn thanks to it’s anti-inflammatory properties. I love the natural & gentle ingredients in this lotion as well as the active ingredients that really go to work! This is a magnificent lotion for everything from head to toe.ogo ~ NYC
