|The skin is the largest organ in the human body weighing approximately ten pounds and covering an area of about 16 square feet. People often take skin for granted and tend not to take optimal care of it. Our skin is responsible for protecting our internal organs from the toxic external world. Our skin protects us from heat, cold, and physical injuries. It also provides us with sensory information about the nature of the external world, and is our first defense against invasion by bacteria, viruses, and other toxic elements. The skin is also an excretory organ, removing toxins from the body via perspiration.
The skin, as the outermost barrier of the body, is exposed to various sources of oxidative stress, in particular UV-irradiation and environmental toxins such as cigarette smoke, air pollution, etc. Internally, the skin is attacked like any other organ, through processes involving glycation (protein cross-linking), collagen-elastin degradation, and free radical-induced injury.
Ultra Rejuvenex is an extraordinary youth-promoting face cream that contains green and white tea extracts, along with many other beneficial nutrients for the skin. An abundance of scientific studies reveal that tea extracts provide protection to the skin.Independent studies show that green tea can prevent DNA damage. Even more exciting is the effect of tea extract on aging human skin; when topically applied, green tea helps maintain structure-supporting cells.
Free radicals inflict tremendous damage to the skin, resulting in age-related alterations. One reason why sunlight accelerates aging is because it depletes the skin's natural antioxidants. When green tea extract is applied topically, it can prevent the reduction of natural antioxidants.
A major cause of wrinkling is the cross-linking (glycation) of the skin's proteins. Topical application with green tea extract reduces protein glycation by as much as 75%.
Alpha and beta-hydroxy acids
Alpha-hydroxy acids were long ago documented to remove coarse dead cells at the skin's surface, thereby exposing the youthful-looking cells beneath. Some people, however, experience irritation using large amounts of these acids. To resolve this problem, Ultra Rejuvenex provides a balanced combination of alpha and beta-hydroxy acids. The beta-hydroxy acids remove dead cells at the skin's surface, without causing irritation.
Hyaluronic acid, alpha-lipoic acid, beta-glucan, and oat kernel extract
Youthful skin contains an abundance of hyaluronic acid. This viscous protein forms part of the structural support scaffold beneath the skin. In the epidermis, hyaluronic acid helps the skin retain moisture. Ultra Rejuvenex contains hyaluronic acid in a patented QuSome liposome delivery system for deeper penetration.
When the mitochondria are metabolically compromised, skin cells cannot perform youthful repair functions. As we grow older, the accumulation of glycated collagen can result in visible skin aging. Alpha-lipoic acid is a potent antioxidant that helps maintain the health of the skin. Ultra Rejuvenex contains an abundance of alpha-lipoic acid.
Beta-glucan is a specialized yeast cell wall extract that helps support the skin. Few people realize that maintaining the skin's immune function also helps retain one's youthful appearance. More beta-glucan has been added to Ultra Rejuvenex. Oat kernel extract is a 100% natural sugar derived from oats whose elastic nature has an immediate and long lasting effect in the skin—making the skin firmer.
Vitamins for the skin
Scientific studies substantiate the skin-rejuvenating effects of topically applied antioxidants, especially vitamin C. When applied topically, the ascorbyl palmitate and ascorbyl phosphate forms of vitamin C nourish the skin. Ultra Rejuvenex contains both of these forms of vitamin C.
Ultra Rejuvenex provides optimal potencies of the best-documented skin-restoration agents. Key ingredients in Ultra Rejuvenex are encased in a patented QuSome delivery system. This system enables the ingredients to reach the lower layers of skin where they are released gradually to protect and enhance cellular metabolic function.
The pioneering work of Benjamin S. Frank, MD, showed that RNA (ribonucleic acid) improves cellular energy and the movement of youthful cells to the skin's surface, where they replace older cells. Clinical trials by Elizabeth Arden, Inc., also demonstrated the rejuvenating effects of creams containing RNA/DNA. Ultra Rejuvenex contains cell-renewing RNA.
Ultra Rejuvenex is the only cream in the world that provides a complete moisturizing complex, including NaPCA, lactic acid, and urea, all of which are lost in the dry, creased skin of older people. Patented Ceraphyl NGA is also included because of its moisturizing ability.
Cumulative daily sunlight exposure results in significant skin damage and premature aging. Ultra Rejuvenex contains avobenzone, octyl salicylate, and micronized zinc oxide for minimum protection against sunburn.
With 28 active ingredients, Ultra Rejuvenex is a comprehensive skin cream. It should be applied to the face every morning before your first encounter with the sun. It readily penetrates the skin and can be worn under makeup.
