Mature skin treatment to help reverse erosion of elasticity and firmness caused by advanced glycation end products One main cause of visible aging is glycation, which occurs when excess glucose molecules bind to collagen and elastin fibers and prompt the formation of advanced glycation end-products (A.G.E.s) that lead to severe skin wrinkling. A.G.E. Interrupter is a unique treatment formulated with 4% blueberry extract, 30% Proxylane™ and 0.2% phytosphingosine to help prevent the glycation process and correct severe signs of aging in mature skin.
- Blueberry extract helps slow down the process of advanced glycation end-product (A.G.E.) formation, preventing collagen and elastin fibers from becoming rigid
- Proxylane™ stimulates GAG synthesis, restoring water and nutrients to the skin
- Phytosphingosine helps protect the skin’s barrier to alleviate discomfort associated with dry, aging skin
Clinical Study A controlled 12-week clinical study of women ages 45-61 revealed improvement in skin texture, density, fine lines, and wrinkles. Science Blueberry extract is both an antioxidant and anti-glycation ingredient that inhibits advanced glycation end-products (A.G.E.s) while preventing further oxidation from occurring. Proxylane helps reinforce the support structure that degrades as a direct result of intrinsic aging and helps to improve anchorage of the skin’s upper layers to increase the appearance of elasticity and thickness. Phytosphingosine protects the skin’s barrier, while rich emollients hydrate dry, cracking skin. Innovation 1 Our advanced research group evaluated several different blueberry extracts, screening each for anti-glycation activity, selecting the particular extract in A.G.E. Interrupter for its potent anti-glycation activity, compatibility with other actives in the formula and efficiency in skin. We currently have two patents pending with this specific ingredient, including one for anti- glycation and another for MMP inhibition. Four percent of the extract was the level found to be most effective in clinical trials. Use Massage a thin, even veil into the entire face, neck and chest once or twice daily.
