The importance of skin moisturization for healthy and young-looking skin has been recognized for many decades. Barrier maintenance and repair, i.e., replenishing the stratum corneum with the lipids that participate in the barrier function, with the help of skin-identical ceramides, constitutes a significant improvement in skin moisture management. An impaired barrier contributes to the rapid formation of wrinkles and other tissue damages.
Foundations and other pigment-containing skincare products tend to enhance skin dryness, as the finely ground pigments offer a large surface of evaporation. Fortunately, clinically proven (in vivo study) Dermaxyl™ solves issues concerning dehydration and wrinkling, combining the benefits of ceramide and matrikine in a single formula, improving the skin's barrier function, at the same time increasing underlying tissue repair by the biologically active peptide, and acting synergistically to reduce the visible signs of aging to an unprecedented degree.
Ceramide 2 replenishes the lipid barrier and improves the skin's water-binding ability, smoothing fine lines and deep wrinkles. Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-12 (Palmitoyl-Val-Gly-Val-Ala-Pro-Gly) stimulates fibroblasts' mobility and boosts elastin production, improving skin elasticity and firmness. In addition, it enhances recovery processes and promotes the production of other extracellular matrix components such as collagen, glycoproteins, and glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), improving skin's overall condition, water-retainment capacity, and surface smoothness. This complex is a balanced youth elixir for tired, wrinkled, or pale skin.
