Combination of active ingredients hyaluronic acid, peptides and amino acid
Proteins such as hyaluron, collagen or others are one of the most important foundations of the skin. They consist of chains of peptides, and each peptide is formed from a combination of amino acids. If the skin did not contain peptides, it would be flabby, inelastic and wrinkled.
Peptides alone are not enough
Peptides are special active ingredients that have no influence on hormonal balance and cause hardly any side effects, but as single ingredients they are not enough. Skin care products should also contain other effective ingredients, such as antioxidants and skin regenerating ingredients (including peptides).
Derma SR uses a special combination of peptides and amino acids such as Matrixyl, Pyridoxine, Proline, Lysine, Diosgenin, Spirulina Glycerin and Madecassoside with hyaluronic acid and vitamin c to achieve the best results from professional treatments in the beauty studio and home treatments.
Matrixyl consists of two messenger substances, also called matrikins, which regulate cell activities. The skin's own repair processes are supported and strengthened by Matrixyl. This active ingredient is incorporated in combination with hyaluronic acid in the Derma SR Balance Mattifying Fluid.
Proline & Lysine have been proven to repair skin at the cellular level by boosting collagen production and improving skin elasticity. Fused with our DMS cream basis and hyaluronic acid, they can be found in the Derma SR Balance Hydrating Cream.
Diosgenin combined with a high dose of hyaluronic acid has the ability to combat collagen loss in the skin. This great compound can be found in the Derma SR Rich Firming Cream.
Spirulina Glycerin is a natural liquid extract made from spirulina. It is obtained by filtration, after a long maceration and stirring the algae in a mixture of glycerin and water. Spirulina is an algae recognized for its revitalizing, moisturizing and antioxidative properties and is an active ingredient in the Derma SR Vitamin C Repair Fluid.
In our next blog article we will explain the active ingredients and benefits of our peelings used for conventional beauty treatments, dermaneedling and at home.
