Effective skin regeneration with Retinew A16 – Discover Breakthrough in Skin Renewal!
The active ingredient revolution for 2014 – Introducing the new DOCTOR BABOR DERMA CELLULAR Ultimate A16 Booster Concentrate for effective skin regeneration like never seen before.
A fresh and, above all, a fast “reboot” – that’s what DOCTOR BABOR DERMA CELLULAR Ultimate A16 Booster Concentrate holds in store for your skin. For many years, vitamin A was the gold standard in skin renewal. “With Retinew A16 we have raised the bar,” explains Andrea Weber, who heads the Research and Innovation Center at BABOR. In the new DOCTOR BABOR DERMA CELLULAR Ultimate A16 Booster Concentrate the new active ingredient Retinew A16 is 16 times more concentrated than Vitamin A. Retinew A16 is a protein fraction extracted from the seeds of the moth bean, which has been cultivated for more than 2,000 years in the Indian subcontinent. BABOR now uses the power of this ancient seed in its innovative active ingredient Retinew A16. Retinew A16 speeds up skin renewal by activating the skin’s Growth Factors as well as the Fibroblasts, which produce collagen. At the same time, it stimulates the Keratinocytes that are responsible for epidermal regeneration. Revitalized in this way, the skin once again looks smooth and even – as if it had been reborn.
10% Retinew A16 shows a 16-fold more effective than retinol in the maximum allowable concentration of 0.3% ( EU).
How to apply:
Mornings and evenings, after cleansing, dot one or two drops of the serum on each cheek, on your forehead, your neck and your décolleté, and massage into the skin. Then apply a moisturizing cream. The serum is particularly effective at night, when the skin’s own regeneration processes are in full swing.
During the day, DERMA CELLULAR Detoxifying Vitamin Cream supports the skin renewal process. This cream also contains the new active ingredient Retinew A16. In addition, the high-dose vitamins C and E strengthen the skin’s immune defence system and improve the skin’s natural ability to protect itself against UV rays and environmental stressors. Meanwhile, an extract of garden cress frees the skin tissue from harmful substances by activating the production of the skin’s own anti-oxidants and detox enzymes. Stressed, tired-looking skin regains its vibrant, fresh and healthy appearance and is well protected with this cream.
Of course, we’ve all heard of Retinol. It’s touted for its ability to smooth out wrinkles, banish breakouts, tighten pores, diminish brown spots and improve skin texture. Phew! That’s a whole lot for one skin care ingredient to do. But, do any of us really know what retinol is? Why it works? Which one to use?
Whether from the dermatologist or the drug store, the natural product aisle or the department store, retinol, in all its forms, retinoids – which is the collective name for the chemical compounds that include retinol, retinoic acid and many more – are derived from Vitamin A, one of the body’s key nutrients. And there’s a good reason why Vitamin A is one of our “go-to” skin-care ingredients. It is one of the best anti-ager’s out there…when, of course, used within a healthy regimen. Retinol, a form of Vitamin A, is considered a benchmark for anti-aging treatments and has a proven effect on cell renewal. Retinoids, like retinol, can trigger certain changes in your skin that can help you look like you’ve turned back the clock, and help you get your skin back to a healthier place.
By now you’re probably asking, “If retinol is so amazing, what’s the problem?” Well, as it turns out, retinol, like some primitive forms of Vitamin C, is unstable in skin care formulations. This slightly rickety compound is prone to quick degeneration when exposed to oxygen and light. And, while retinol may work wonders, it’s definitely not gentle! Dryness, redness, irritation (and you know, those white patches you get when a product is TOO aggressive without regard for your skin sensitivities?), are often side effects, which make retinol incompatible for most people. You may be familiar with retinol’s cousin, retinoic acid (also known as tretinoin or Retin-A). First used as a prescription-strength treatment for acne in the early 1970s, patients soon began seeing their fine lines disappear, and thus, the frenzy for Retin-A began.
Good News…there is a wonderfully effective natural alternative! Moth Bean Extract (Vigna Aconitifolia), a climbing bean botanical native to India and Pakistan. Drought resistant, the Moth Bean produces seedpods where its nutritive proteins are found. We get the extract from these seedpods which provides effects just like synthetic retinols – helping to support natural collagen production and refine skin texture, as well as the host of other actions listed above. And just like retinol, Moth Bean Extract helps stimulate cell renewal and collagen synthesis which decreases wrinkles. Even better, it provides stability in skin care formulations without the pesky side effects of synthetic chemical retinoids. Clinically backed studies confirm Moth Bean Extract’s retinol-like effect on the skin.
