With just three letters – DNA – we can solve an anti-aging puzzle and reverse the appearance left by aging on the skin. By repairing your skin’s DNA, you can naturally tighten up sagging skin, remove wrinkles on your face, and de-age your skin to look and feel younger.
DNA is present in all our cells, the small living units in the human body or the smallest separate living organisms. Cells are the basic building blocks of all living things. If DNA becomes damaged, and is not repaired properly, then the cell division can cause replication errors and thus mutation and/or the cell may die. This can lead to various disorders such as prematurely aging skin.
Not so long ago, laser treatments were big, but now DNA repair and stem cell skin care are the buzzwords. Today we know for sure that a connection between DNA and signs of skin aging exists.
Exposure to UV rays elevates accumulation of free-radical damage and thus, in essence, the DNA that codes your skin cells is injured. Normally, immune receptors in skin cells fix the problem, but, as we grow older, the more sun exposure you get, your body becomes weaker to defend itself, and the less effective this process becomes. This leads to wrinkles, as well as many skin diseases including cancer.
Well, it would make sense somehow if you could repair the sun damaged DNA in your skin, you can lower your risk of skin cancer. As a bonus, the skin of your face would look fresher and healthier.
Now stem cell based skin care products are the gold standard in anti-aging for their ability to accelerate skin cell turnover and inhibit the DNA damage. But only a few skin-care companies can claim it’s possible to bandage these genetic failures with topical ingredients in facial skin care cream or serum. And thanks to its unique patented skin delivery system in RG-CELL Cosmeceuticals, TimeSlip Solutions, can claim that.
What Skin Needs
Antioxidants repair DNA damage, reduce inflammation, destroy molecules that can damage healthy cells, provide UVA/UVB protection, stimulate the production of collagen and provide defense against environmental stress and pollution. Human skin is constantly directly exposed to the mechanical and chemical challenges, which are capable of inducing the generation of free radicals as well as reactive oxygen species of our own metabolism. Antioxidants absorb reactive oxygen species and thereby prevent oxidative DNA damage.
Peptides are portions that regulate the activity of many systems by interacting with target cells, improve skin’s appearance, fix damaged DNA, optimize healing and improve skin remodeling. Peptides are also the signaling response to our fibroblasts which are responsible for elastin and collagen production. Peptides enhance the natural performance of our skin by repairing damaged DNA, stimulating collagen and elastin production, and by suppressing destructive enzymes.
Amino Acids directly affect the health and beauty of our skin. They are the building blocks of healthy, beautiful skin. Besides building cells and repairing tissue, amino acids build nucleoproteins (RNA & DNA); they carry oxygen throughout the body, and form antibodies to combat invading bacteria.
Essential Fatty Acids help to build up the lipid-based cell membranes that hold in water and nutrients, protect our genetic material (DNA) from damage, help combat moisture loss and protect the skin from UV damage and pollutants. This means that Essential Fatty Acids help to keep important things within your cells, while allowing bad things out.
Epidermal Growth Factor is a natural protein found in the fibroblast cells of the dermal layer and aids in stimulating cells so that they produce collagen. It stimulates the synthesis of DNA, RNA as well as hyaluronic acid and hydroxyproline, accelerates cell proliferation and differentiation of various epidermal tissues.
How it works?
DNA skin repair products employ ingredients usually based on enzymes derived from a variety of sources, which work synergistically with antioxidants to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. They also include epidermal growth factor, a collagen-boosting protein obtained by genetic engineering technology totally identical to human EGF.
Because of its genetic engineering technology it is totally safe and effective, unlike other products that use a protein isolated from barley, apple or melon. Personally, I do not see the link between growth factors in barley and collagen production in human skin cells. How they benefit human skin is difficult to understand. Plant cells are a good source of nutrients to human skin, but haven’t other benefits.
Many studies have shown that these enzymes work by restoring DNA. Moreover, dermatologists suggest that these really can revitalize skin, reduce the risk of skin cancer and restore free radical damage, most often caused by sun exposure, pollution and other environmental factors.
However, epidermal growth factor is a large molecule so it cannot penetrate the skin. Only special technology, can deliver EGF into the skin deeper layers. Owing to this fact, TimeSlip’s RG-CELL can make valid claims about the efficiency in its delivery of EGF, because it uses a unique patented nano-particulate lipid bi-layer as its delivery system which allows the serum to be delivered deep into the skin where the stem cells live.
