What causes skin ageing?
Oxidation damage from sun and the environment is believed to be the number one cause of skin ageing. This damage affects collagen and elastin resulting in a loss of firmness and smoothness, the appearance of dark spots and discolourations, the formation of lines and wrinkles, and other ageing signs.
Why is PREVAGE® Anti-aging Daily Serum so effective?
PREVAGE® Anti-aging Daily Serum is a treatment that does it all. It contains Idebenone, a highly effective antioxidant in a new skin compatble ester delivery system, to help reduce the visible signs of ageing. PREVAGE® Anti-aging Daily Serum also helps to re-energise skin, which results in a firmer, less lined, smoother look. Tests show PREVAGE® Anti-aging Daily Serum helps to even skin tone, increase the look of firmness, reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, redness, minor scars and discolourations and brighten the look of skin.
What is new and different about the Idebenone technology in new PREVAGE® Anti-aging Daily Serum?
PREVAGE® Anti-aging Daily Serum delivers Idebenone through a skin compatible ester delivery system, inspired by studies showing how the body effectively stores vitamins and molecules by attaching them to a lipid. PREVAGE® skincare researchers applied this research to the Idebenone molecule found in the serum to help maintain a reserve of Idebenone to use when and where it's needed most. This “delivery system” allows for more efficient use of Idebenone and has been shown to be more to be gentle and effective even on those with sensitive skin.
How does the antioxidant blend work with Idebenone?
The new PREVAGE® Anti-aging Daily Serum formula contains a blend of potent ingredients that can tackle the different types of free radicals to provide a higher level of environmental protection. The specific antioxidants – Thiotaine, Bamboo Isoflavones, Liprochroman 6 and Green Tea Blend – chosen to support idebenone in the new PREVAGE® Anti-aging Daily Serum formula work as the first line of antioxidant defense and “specialise” in neutralising different types of free radical activity. This allows Idebenone to help prevent free radical activity and address the visible effects of existing damage.
In addition, Lys-lastine V complements Idebenone to help to maintain skin’s look of elasticity. The combination supports skin’s natural proteins, including elastin and collagen, to help skin look firmer, more toned and younger.
What results can you expect from PREVAGE® Anti-aging Daily Serum?
In addition to significantly reducing the appearance of lines, wrinkles, sun damage, age spots and giving skin a firmer look, PREVAGE® Anti-aging Daily Serum has also been shown to reduce the appearance of redness and minor scars. Long term use of the product along with an SPF will also result in less overall visible damage to the skin by environmental aggressors, as the skin is better equipped to protect itself from damaging free radical assaults.
Does PREVAGE® Anti-aging Daily Serum contain sunscreen?
PREVAGE® Anti-aging Daily Serum provides antioxidant protection against environmental assaults. It does not contain sunscreen. During the day, be sure to follow with PREVAGE® Day for broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 30 protection.
How do I use PREVAGE® Anti-aging Daily Serum?
TEST USAGE: Apply a small amount to your inner arm once a day for at least three consecutive days. Discontinue use and consult a physician if irritation or rash appears. If no reaction occurs, proceed to regular usage. REGULAR USAGE: Push pump down twice to dispense a pea size amount onto your fingers. Thoroughly massage onto cleansed face, neck and décolleté 1-2 times daily. For best results, follow with PREVAGE® Day in the morning and PREVAGE® Overnight before bed.
Has PREVAGE® Anti-aging Daily Serum been tested?
Yes, extensive testing has been done on both the new Idebenone molecule and delivery system, as well as on the new PREVAGE® Anti-aging Daily Serum formula. The new Idebenone molecule tested even higher than original Idebenone on the Sunburn Cell Assay portion of the EPF® test, achieving an EPF® rating of 95. The formula has been sensitive skin tested and has undergone both clinical and consumer tests on participants with moderate to severe sun damage In this testing both expert graders and consumers saw a significant improvement in the appearance of skin.
Why is the eye area more vulnerable to ageing signs?
Because the skin around the eye area is very thin, it has more limited natural defenses against the outside world. It is the first place to show signs of sun and environmental damage: fine lines, crow’s feet, dark circles and puffiness.
How does PREVAGE® Eye address the needs of the eye area?
PREVAGE® Eye Anti-aging Eye Serum contains I-seryl Complex and Idebenone. It provides essential environmental protection and promotes a smoother, firmer, less lined appearance as it brightens and lifts the look of eyes.
Why is adequate sleep essential for healthy skin?
During the day, your skin uses its resources to fight environmental assaults. At night it uses the body's natural sleep cycle to repair and renew itself. Researchers believe your body needs at least 8 hours of sleep for optimum recovery. When this time is shortened, incomplete repair can lead to premature ageing signs like dryness, dullness, loss of firmness, fine lines and wrinkles.
How can PREVAGE® Anti-aging Overnight Cream compensate?
PREVAGE® Anti-aging Overnight Cream contains encapsulated and time released Idebenone, Mega Complex-A and high performance moisturisers. It infuses skin throughout the night to boost its anti-ageing abilities and help enhance skin's own natural repair process.
How is skin on the body different from skin on the face?
Skin on the body tends to be thicker with fewer sebaceous glands than the skin on the face. With age and environmental exposure, skin gets thinner and drier, age spots begin to show, and that young smooth texture can begin to look rough, leathery or crepy. As you get older, firmness decreases and skin starts to sag.
How does PREVAGE® Body address these special needs?
PREVAGE® Body contains Idebenone and Tripeptide Complex. Idebenone helps protect skin from environmental assaults and helps minimise the appearance of age spots and sun damage. Tripeptide Complex works with Idebenone to support skin’s natural levels of collagen, elastin and GAG's (moisture holding proteins) so skin looks firmer and more toned. It also addresses stretch marks and dimpled skin, an improvement confirmed in our consumer test.
What causes stretch marks and dimpled skin?
Stretch marks are the result of collagen and elastin fibers literally getting stretched from weight gain, typically during pregnancy. Dimpling of the skin – the result of fat distribution beneath the skin’s surface - affects 85% of women to some degree. Idebenone and Tripeptide Complex work together to help to support skin’s natural collagen levels to firm the look of skin, smoothing the appearance of stretch marks and dimpled skin.
How important is moisture for the skin on the body and what's special about the moisturisers in PREVAGE® Body?
We tend to forget about the body, especially our hands and legs. Hands take a beating all day from constant washing and exposing them to harsh elements. During the winter our legs lose more moisture due to low humidity and become dry and flaky. If not taken care of the skin can crack and irritants can get into skin, accelerating the signs of ageing. To counter this, we have included Shea Butter, a moisture replenishing ingredient extracted from an African fruit, Glycerin and other effective emollients in PREVAGE® Body. This intensive hydration system creates an incredibly smooth finish as it attracts and binds moisture deep within the surface layers of the skin.
What are the test results for PREVAGE® Body?
In consumer tests PREVAGE® Body was shown to significantly reduce the appearance of age spots and discolourations, stretch marks, dimpled skin and minor scars. Consumers also reported that their skin felt remarkably smoother and softer and had a brighter look.
How do I use PREVAGE® Body?
FOR FIRST TIME USERS: PREVAGE® Anti-aging Treatments contain clinically proven Idebenone to help protect and restore the skin. Idebenone is one of the most powerful and effective antioxidants on the market today. And as with every new technology, there may be a low incidence of people experiencing irritation or rash. In the event that you are one of the few, please discontinue use and consult a physician.
Why are antioxidants, especially Idebenone, essential for the eye area?
Idebenone and other antioxidants scavenge toxic free radicals from environmental exposure to help prevent the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Idebenone works better than other commonly used antioxidants in skincare products, and received the highest EPF rating, of 95 out of 100. In addition, Idebenone is the only antioxidant that effectively neutralises all three types of free radical assaults. This is especially important for the eye area, which is constantly moving from blinking, expression and even in our sleep - during REM.
What makes Idebenone better than other antioxidants?
Idebenone is proven as the most powerful antioxidant* with an EPF® rating of 95 out of 100, and is really the only antioxidant in skincare that effectively combats oxidative stress from both extrinsic (external environmental sources of free radicals such as UV light, ozone, air pollution, cigarette smoke, etc.) and intrinsic (free radicals produced in the skin itself) sources. Idebenone can act on all three levels of free radical damage, working deep within the surface layers of the skin to restore skin's appearance. There are three different types of free radical reactions caused by oxidative stress. Primary free radicals (reactive oxygen species) are unstable molecules created as a result of exposure to environmental assaults. Secondary free radicals (reactive carbonyl species) are formed as a result of exposure to primary free radicals and tend to damage the protective lipids of the skin. There is also free radical activity that happens within the surface skin cells themselves. Not all antioxidants have the same protective capabilities. Most antioxidants shield from one type of free radical, and a few of the more potent antioxidant ingredients can attack both primary and secondary free radical damage. It provides the most effective and highest level of antioxidant protection available.
In addition to its protective capabilities, Idebenone helps restore and visibly correct skin's appearance. It helps prevents further damage and supports skin's natural repair mechanisms to help address the visible effects past damage.
Any insights on healthy skin in the eye area from your research on Idebenone?
Idebenone is good for all areas of the skin, especially for the delicate skin around the eye area which is much thinner and generally the first area of the face to show the signs of ageing as a result of damage accumulation from exposure to UV light and other sources of free radical damage, such as cigarette smoke, pollution, etc.
What's new in the PREVAGE® Eye formulas?
Research on Idebenone has centered on how to make this powerful ingredient even more effective and also more gentle. We created a new Idebenone ester technology, which fuses Idebenone with a fatty acid to deliver it to the skin more efficiently. It helps to create a reservoir so the skin can use the Idebenone when and where it is needed most, similar to a time released delivery system. This delivery mechanism has the added benefit that it is also more skin friendly, making it gentle to the skin - which is particularly important in the eye area as it is more sensitive and prone to irritation.
Why is sun protection necessary in the eye area?
UV rays account for over 90% of free radical damage generated in the skin and the eye area, where skin is often left unprotected. PREVAGE® Anti-aging Eye Cream SPF 15 PA++ provides broad spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection in addition to the benefits of Idebenone. The sunscreens in PREVAGE® Anti-aging Eye Cream SPF 15 PA++ are encapsulated, so they remain on the skin's surface and protect without coming into direct contact with the skin. This is important because skin in the eye area is more sensitive, especially to sunscreens.
How do the additional ingredients work together with Idebenone?
PREVAGE® Anti-aging Eye Serum
In addition to Idebenone, we have included a number of complementary ingredients that work with Idebenone to decrease the appearance of lines and wrinkles, puffiness, dark circles, crepiness, discolourations and improve the look of sun damaged skin.
PREVAGE® Anti-aging Eye Cream SPF 15 PA++
We reinforced this formula with a blend of targeted ingredients to support Idebenone and help protect eyes from environmental free radical assaults, dehydration and damage caused by UV rays.
How do you use the Eye Serum and Eye Cream SPF 15 products together?
For the best results, use PREVAGE® Anti-aging Eye Serum morning and night on cleansed skin for antioxidant protection and correction to skin's appearance. In the morning, follow with PREVAGE® Eye Cream SPF 15 to moisturise and protect skin from the sun and harsh environmental aggressors that can damage the delicate skin around the eyes.
Has PREVAGE® Eye been ophthalmologist tested?
Yes, both PREVAGE® Anti-aging Eye Serum and PREVAGE® Anti-aging Eye Cream SPF 15 PA++ have been ophthalmologist and dermatologist tested.
What causes dark spots and uneven pigmentation?
Dark spots and uneven pigmentation are triggered by exposure to sun, specifically the longer, more penetrating UVA rays. This exposure produces free radicals that signal the melanocytes to produce more melanin to protect the skin. The over production of melanin in specific areas leads to dark spots or age spots and uneven areas of pigmentation on the skin’s surface.
How does Soy Ferulate help?
Soy Ferulate-C helps to shield skin from free radicals that can lead to the formation of dark spots on the skin. It also includes Vitamin C, a proven skin brightener to help give skin a more even toned look. This advanced blend gently and effectively works to reduce the look of existing age spots.
How does Vitamin C help?
Vitamin C is a proven skin brightener that helps minimise the appearance of existing dark spots and discolorations to create more clarity and give skin a more even tone.
How does Idebenone work with Soy Ferulate C?
Idebenone is the only antioxidant that works on all three levels of environmental assaults, making it the most powerful antioxidant.** Idebenone works with Soy Ferulate-C by helping to fight free radicals on the skin to repair skin’s appearance.
Beyond targeting existing dark spots and preventing new ones, how does the PREVAGE® Skin Tone Corrector formula brighten skin and improve clarity?
Free radical damage not only leads to discolorations but also to dull, flaky and unhealthy looking skin. PREVAGE® Skin Tone Corrector targets both, to help give skin a more even tone and enhanced clarity for a more translucent appearance.
How does PREVAGE® Skin Tone Corrector work with PREVAGE® Anti-aging Daily Serum for increased benefits?
When PREVAGE® Skin Tone Corrector is combined with PREVAGE® Anti-aging Daily Serum, skin has the advantage of both targeted results and PREVAGE® anti-ageing benefits. The appearance of dark spots and discolorations is minimised even more, and visible ageing signs such as lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness and sun damage are improved.
What are the test results?
PREVAGE® Skin Tone Corrector was found to significantly minimise the appearance of existing dark spots and pigmentation irregularities and improve skin tone and clarity, as well as giving skin a smoother appearance and a youthful looking glow. When PREVAGE® Skin Tone Corrector was used with PREVAGE® Anti-aging Daily Serum, benefits to skin’s overall appearance were amplified.
What is the application?
After following test usage instructions, apply a small amount to fingertips and smooth over areas where dark spots or discolorations exist. Use after PREVAGE® Anti-aging Daily Serum. And be sure to use an SPF before sun exposure.
Why is sun protection important?
Sun protection is important because UV rays are responsible for the generation of 90% of the free radicals in the skin. Free radicals damage many of the lipids and surface skin cells. This damage not only leads to the formation of dark spots and discolorations, but also premature signs of skin ageing such as lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, dry, dull, flaky looking skin and a loss of skin’s firm look. PREVAGE® Skin Tone Corrector does not contain sunscreen ingredients. PREVAGE® Anti-aging Moisture Lotion with Sunscreens.
Is PREVAGE® Skin Tone Corrector effective for sensitive skin?
PREVAGE® Skin Tone Corrector is non-comedogenic and effective and gentle, even for sensitive skin.
