The power of cosmeceuticals
I’ve always wanted to be a teacher. What a wonderful gift to impart knowledge on impressionable young minds… but what’s even more exciting is to tap the minds of the new cool kids on the block, the Skintellectuals. You’ve seen them blogging in the local coffee shop, instagramming their homemade kitchen facial, sussing out the best smoothie for skin nutrients. I see you Skintellectual and I’m about to blow your mind!
Did you know the skin’s number one job? It’s the body’s primary defence system, keeping microbes and foreign bodies OUT. So when we address our aesthetic needs, the most effective mechanism for enhancing the skin’s surface is to approach it from within. Cosmeceuticals are a new concept, but they’re one that delivers. Cosmeceuticals are cosmetic products with bioactive ingredients that deliver intense benefits. When we created glow+, we wanted to push the boundaries of science and a person’s ability to dramatically enhance the quality of their hair, skin, and nails. We knew we could deliver a product that no one in the UK – even if they had tried other collagen products – had seen before.
Collagen is the major structural component of skin and makes up about 80% of its dry weight. Skin properties are known to be affected by endogenous and environmental factors including aging, ultraviolet radiation, hormones and nutrition. Pura Collagen uses Bioactive Collagen Peptides® that have a patented peptide profile, specifically optimised to support beauty from within. The peptide used in glow+ can stimulate skin metabolism and counteract the loss of collagenous extracellular matrix from the inside, thus our consumers can experience firmer and smoother skin, with fewer wrinkles, reduced cellulite, as well as stronger nails and hair. Results typically show after several weeks of daily consumption.
There is no expensive cream that can match how the oral delivery of Bioactive Collagen Peptides® works. The fibroblast cells in the dermal layer of the skin will recognise the specific peptides. This then stimulates the fibroblasts need to increase their metabolic activity. The results are a higher synthesis of new dermal collagen and all other extracellular matrix proteins, balancing what is lost through aging and environmental influences.
So, here’s a pop quiz Skintellectual! The ingredients in glow+ have been clinically proven to deliver:
- Higher skin elasticity
- Reduction of wrinkles
- Confirmed effects independent of ethnicity
- Improved skin surface structure and reduced cellulite
- Significant decrease of cellulite score
- Growth and health of fingernails
- Healthy hair support
- All of the above
If you chose ‘h’ (and I know you did!) consider yourself a bona fide Skintellectual! Time to start your #puralide journey.
