Super AntiOxidant Serum with EGF, Gamma Poly Glutamic Acid, and Aloe Vera

Super AntiOxidant Serum with EGF, Gamma Poly Glutamic Acid, and Aloe Vera

1. EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor : rh-Oligopeptide-1):


In 1986, Stanley Cohen received the Nobel Prize for his work elucidating the role of the epidermal growth factor (EGF) in the regulation of cell growth and development. EGF is a growth factor that plays an important role in the regulation of cell growth, cell proliferation, and differentiation. As with all growth factors, it is a small protein. EGF acts by binding to specific receptors on the cell surface, starting a cascade of very organized molecular events; including increased intracellular calcium concentration, energy production, and protein synthesis.

When applied topically, EGF helps regenerate your aged skin. This triggers our body's ability to heal and stimulates collagen production.


2. Gamma Poly Glutamic Acid (gPGA) : 


Gamma PGA is a remarkably potent hydrating compound that represents a major breakthrough in the science of skincare. It is ten times more hydrating than Hyaluronic acid and far more elastic than collagen. In Asia, Gamma PGA is commonly recognized for its specific skin care benefits. It is 100% natural, bio degradable and non-toxic.
Originally discovered in marine jellyfish, Gamma PGA, also known as Natto Gum, Plant/Phyto Collagen or Gamma Poly Glutamic Acid, is derived from NATTO, a Japanese soybean-based health food item dating back more than 1000 years.

Gamma PGA has many features and benefits:

-Diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
-Enhances the skin’s natural moisturizing capabilities
-Penetrates to the skin’s deepest layers
-Carries moisture and nutrients as it penetrates
-Forms a thin, smooth and moisturizing film on the skin (can be used for all skin types-including Oily!)
-Increases production of the Natural Moisturizing Factor 
-Locks in moisture, giving you softer, more supple skin


3. Aloe Vera:


Aloe vera is a great moisturizer and provides a cool and refreshing feeling when applied to your skin. It has antioxidant properties and supports skin cell regeneration, which helps reduce the appearance of facial blemishes, such as acne scars!

It also moisturizes your skin without leaving any greasy residue, even for oily skin. Aloe Vera reduces inflammation and helps naturally firms your skin, helping you look and feel younger!

4. Vitamin C ( L-Ascorbic Acid):

Vitamin C is a powerful and effective antioxidant that protects us from free radicals that cause oxidative stress. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can help our damaged skin look younger and healthier!
- Is more concentrated than nutritional Vitamin C
- Is rapidly absorbed so it won't rub or wash off
- Allows for greater penetration to the skin for greater benefit
- Neutralizes free radical damage
- Helps moisturize and increase skin hydration
- Stimulates collagen production and restores elasticity
- Decreases fine lines and wrinkles
- Brightens the skin for a more even skin tone

Vitamin C is used in skin care as a strong antioxidant AND promotes collagen production, which subsequently plumps the skin and allows your natural radiance and smoothness to shine!

Vitamin C is a prime ingredient of collagen, the substance that binds cells together. Collagen metabolism and production are key attributes of healthy, radiant, younger looking skin. Stable collagen production fights wrinkles, and ensures evenness in the skin's tone and texture.

5. DMAE:

DMAE lightens the age spots that are commonly seen on the face, back of hands and arms. These brown spots are formed from the accumulated lipofuscin deposits in the body. 
Another age-defying effect of DMAE is its SKIN-TIGHTENING action that slows down the inevitable sagging of skin.


6. Vitamin B3 Niacinamide:


Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide) is the water soluble form of niacin, an essential vitamin for healthy cell metabolism and is part of the B group. Vitamin B3 Niacinamide is a highly active, safe, and non-irritating cosmeceutical ingredient. Niacinamide is an excellent way to reduce the appearance of spots and can highlight your natural complexion! 

-Demonstrated anti-inflammatory actions that may be of benefit to inflammatory conditions including acne. 

-Studies have shown topical niacinamide to be effective in improving skin texture, evening out skin tone and improves appearance of aged and photodamaged skin.

-Effective active agent with anti-wrinkle properties, reducing the severity of fine lines by stimulating collagen, the connective tissue responsible for skin suppleness.


7. Collagen:

Collagen acts like a cushion for the skin, helping it look strong, healthy, and silky. It improves the skin’s elasticity, which provides finesse, beauty, and freshness.

8. Glycerin:


Glycerin is a compound that can be made from natural products such as vegetable oil. Glycerin can lead to skin that looks healthier and naturally more youthful. Glycerin helps maintain the skin's water balance on an inter cellular level. Glycerin can can help prevent or combat dry skin!


9. Jojoba Oil :


Jojoba Oil is similar to sebum, the natural oil that lubricates your skin and hair. 

Jojoba Oil is anti inflammatory, non-toxic, and comedogenic. This makes it extremely beneficial for the skin and the entire body.

-Moisturizes skin

-Reduces appearance of wrinkles and signs of aging

-Reduces skin inflammation

-Reduces appearance of dark under eye dark circles

-Reduces appearance of stretch marks-----------------------
10. Ferulic Acid: 

Ferulic Acid, extracted from Rice Bran Oil, is one of the most powerful natural anti-oxidants. Many plants contain Ferulic acid, which plays a key role in the plants self preservation mechanism, re-enforcing it's cellular wall strength and protecting it from microbial damage as well as sun damage. Testing has shown Ferulic Acid to be highly effective as a topical antioxidant and is even an antioxidant extender for many of the other antioxidants. In particular the combination of Vitamin C with Ferulic Acid is shown to double their effectiveness!

However, Vitamin C is notoriously problematic in skin care because of its extremely high oxidative state. There are several factors that must be controlled for topical Vitamin C to be effective. One of the best ways to do so is by getting a serum that is made fresh to order like JJLabs serums! Another way to minimize risk is controlling once it's exposed to air, or moisture, where Vitamin C quickly oxidizes. Ferulic Acid is a great tool that works with Vitamin C works to stabilize the Vitamin C, preventing the oxidation. Also Ferulic Acid reverses signs of aging by getting rid of fine lines and wrinkles!


11. Hyaluronic Acid:


Hyaluronic acid is a natural compound found in skin that has many important functions, including holding in moisture, providing cushioning, adding in tissue repair, and holding together the skin's structural components (collagen and elastin). 

  • Directions

    Apply carefully twice a day, once in the morning before your normal moisturizing routine and again in the evening to a cleansed face. Follow with moisturizer and sunscreen. As the serum is concentrated, only a small amount is needed. Refrigerator storage is recommended.
