The latest and most effective collagen elastin skin remedy does not contain collagens or elastins. What it does contain are nutrients that are proven to stimulate the skin's ability to repair itself.
The human body is an amazing machine. It is programmed to replace and repair damaged cells, tissues and fibers. The programming is written into the cells DNA, but over time, the program can become damaged.
Molecules called free radicals are naturally present in the cells of the body. They perform some important functions, but they must be balanced by an equal number of antioxidants or they begin to act strangely.
As simple molecules, they only know how to deal with simple things. When they are confronted with toxins and UV radiation, they don't know how to respond. Their activity must be neutralized by antioxidants or it will damage the cellular membrane, the collagen and elastin fibers and the cells DNA.
When a cell with damaged DNA divides, the new cells have a different program to follow. They can eventually cause wrinkle formation, cancerous growths or death of the cell. So, one of the most important things that a collagen elastin skin remedy can contain is an antioxidant that has been formulated to penetrate through many of the skin's layers.
The most effective solution is called NANOLIPOBELLE HEQ10. It contains both vitamin E and coenzyme Q10, but the nutrients are ground down, so that the molecules are small enough to penetrate. If a lotion contains regular size antioxidants, it will not be effective.
Collagens and elastins are proteins. They are also too large in size to penetrate the skin's layers. If they were to benefit the skin's fibers, they would need to penetrate through 4-5 layers of epidermis, before they would reach the dermis layer, in which the fibers are formed.
The latest collagen elastin skin remedy contains a protein called keratin, in an active form that the skin's cells can use. You see, not only must a manufacturer provide the right ingredients; they must also be in the right form. This is true whether you are speaking of a skincare cream or a dietary supplement. The nutrient formulation must be "bio-available". That is available for use by the cells of the body.
A collagen elastin skin remedy containing bio-available keratin has been shown to heal dermatitis, relieve itching, reduce redness and inflammation, increase the number of cells and collagens present in the skin's layers, while providing necessary moisture and improving firmness. Bio-available keratin has antioxidant activity, as well.
Only a few companies signed up to include the ingredient in their skincare products, before the company that makes it had to stop taking new orders. None of the big brand names climbed on board. One of them decided that they could come up with a synthetic formulation that was just as effective.
Those of us that believe in natural remedies are sure that synthetics are not good for our skin's health or appearance. Luckily, we have a natural collagen elastin skin remedy that improves both.
