Description
  • Supports the growth and regeneration of skin
  • Protection against free radicals
  • Reduces the effects of UV rays
  • Helps to delay the ageing process of skin
  • Increases the general amount of collagen in the skin
  • Reduces inflammations
  • Improves elasticity and firmness of skin

Lycopene Cream is a cosmetic for topical use, whose main active ingredient is lycopene. Moreover, the product is enriched with concentrated extracts from red, green and white tea containing polyphenols. The cream supports the ability of skin to grow and repair as well as provides natural protection against free radicals and the visible effects of UV radiation.

As lycopene contained in raw tomatoes is closely associated with the indigestible fraction of fibre, only a small part of it, which we consume with food, reaches the skin. The majority of lycopene consumed goes to the organs rich in fat, such as the adrenal glands, the large intestine and the liver.

Lycopene is a strong antioxidant from the carotenes group. It supports the natural body system defence against the visible signs of UV radiation, oxidative stress and premature ageing. This compound is involved in the regulation of the cell cycle, the induction of programmed cell death and is increasingly treated not only as a dietary supplement, but also as a potential drug.

Why is your skin ageing so quickly?

Ultraviolet radiation, pollution and poor diet cause that skin produces large amounts of free radicals. They are extremely aggressive and reactive molecules that cause extensive damage in the area of connective tissue.

When we are young, our natural defence mechanisms neutralize free radicals, but this ability declines with age. The skin ageing process is then much faster, skin loses its fresh look and flexibility. Free radicals destroy the molecules of collagen, skin becomes less hydrated and slackens, you observe first wrinkles, which grow and become deeper.

Lycopene coordinates the behaviour of skin cells and improves functioning of unique channels that facilitate communication of molecules and ions between cells. It strengthens collagen in the skin helping to reduce activity of enzymes involved in its destruction. It also supports the skin's natural ability to relieve inflammation, promotes cell renewal and helps to protect DNA against the damage resulting from exposure to UVB radiation.

Oxygen free radicals are essential natural elements of cell signals transmission. Incorrect operation of the mechanisms of their neutralization is the cause for oxidative stress, which is considered to be a cause for a number of diseases. The action of reactive oxygen species results in changes in DNA, proteins, lipids as well as leads to disorders in the regulation of the cell cycle.

Reacting with free radicals, lycopene plays a role of a proton donor and it becomes a radical. It has a strong affinity for cell membranes causing an increase in their fluidity and permeability, which indirectly leads to the activation of the cellular antioxidant defence pathways. It has a direct impact on the protection of cell membrane lipids from oxidants, and it neutralizes free radicals in the cytosol by the means of other antioxidants. Lycopene increases the efficiency of scavenging free radicals by vitamins C and E and β-carotene.

To sum it all up, Lycopene Cream is a product that smoothes and nourishes the skin of the whole body, and mainly the skin of face, neck and décolleté. Systematic use of the product improves the firmness and elasticity of the skin, raises its hydration level and unifies skin tone. The cream is suitable for all skin types, especially sensitive and vulnerable to the negative impact of external factors. The cosmetic is also recommended in the natural rejuvenating therapy in both women and men.

Hyaluronic acid

Information

Hyaluronic acid (sodium hyaluronate) is a glycosaminoglycan, which do not form covalent bonds with proteins and does not contain sulfate groups. Creates so called proteoglycans aggregates absorbing water and which are responsible for the resistance of cartilage. It is one of the components responsible for the intra-articular fluid viscosity. It takes part in the regeneration of skin tissue. It is synthesized in the body providing a full daily demand. Supplementation applies to athletes exposed to overload of the locomotor system. It is a component of preparations supporting the regeneration of joints and tendons and cosmetics supporting the condition of hair, skin and nails.


 

Lycopene

Information

Lycopene, an organic compound, carotenoid form xanthophylls group, a natural dye of plant origin, colouring to bright red, occurring i.e. in tomatoes and carrots. It has the strongest antioxidant potential (relatively to the singlet oxygen) from the carotenes. It is not participating, in contrast to other carotenes, in the transformation of vitamin A. It reduces the risk of lung cancer, atherosclerosis and other diseases of the circulatory system, it is a component of nutrient, vitaminizing, vitamin-mineralizing and functional supplements, (often in combination with beta-carotene, lutein) supporting reduction of body fat, improving skin complexion, available at www.muscle-zone.pl
