Aesculus Hippocastanum Extract & Escin: Escin is a mixture of saponins with anti-inflammatory, vasoconstrictor and vasoprotective effects found in Aesculus hippocastanum (the horse chestnut), which make this a perfect ingredient to fight fluid retention, swelling and cellulite. Aescin is the main active compound in horse chestnut is a potent anti-inflammatory compound. Aesculus Hippocastanum Extract has recently been shown to have one of the highest ‘active-oxygen’ scavenging abilities of 65 different plant extracts tested. Such extracts are more powerful anti-oxidants than vitamin E, and also exhibit potent cell-protective effects, which are linked to the well-known anti-ageing properties of anti-oxidants. This extract is also rich in a number of flavonoids – that have protective effects on blood vessels, and are well-known, powerful anti-oxidants.

Fucus Vesiculosus Powder: This type of seaweed, promotes the contraction of fibroblast-populated collagen through increased expression of integrin molecules. Studies show that after applying Fucus, a significant decrease in skin thickness measured was elicited, as was a significant improvement in elasticity (with age, thickness normally increases and the elasticity usually decreases), making it a perfect ingredient to fight skin-aging and flabbiness.

Drosera Ramentacea Leaf: a carnivorous plant that helps reshaping the body. Our active ingredient derived from this sundew, works as a slimming, re-shaping and anti-cellulite agent. This carnivorous plant is characterized by a phytocomplex with two main molecular peculiarities: the adhesive polysaccharide secretion of the trap and secondary metabolites with anti-inflammatory and bio-active properties. Therefore, our active ingredient is responsible for the reduction of fat accumulation during the adipogenesis process and reduction of the adipocyte size.

Ivy (Hedera Helix) Extract: This botanical extract has great anti-fungal, anti-mutagenic as well as cellulite control properties. Ivy (Hedera helix) extract contains Hederin (Hederine), an active saponin which is responsible for blood vessel protection and permeability decrease. Ivy further helps to reabsorb the edemas present in the initial stages of cellulite. Works as a cellulitic agent due to its properties as an anti-inflammatory and pain killer provided by the saponosides and flavonoids. A major action of this herb is that of a circulatory compound which assists other components to be absorbed by the skin, whilst also helping to remove waste products and fatty build-ups from the tissue and helps release fatty deposits from the cells. The saponosids in ivy help other components present to be absorbed by the skin and help the lipids (fatty contents) stocked in the adipocytes (fat cells) to go back into the blood stream and to be either used as a source of energy or to be eliminated. Saponosids in ivy relieve congestion in the lymphatic system and make lipids soluble, that will also help to improve the elimination of cell metabolism residues.

Bacillus Sp. extracted from Dysidea etheria from Bermuda: It is a biotechnological low-molecular weight extracellular substance containing peptidic and glucidic material that mimics the effect of endurance exercise training to improve body tone. This marine active ingredient we had to our formula, not only won a Gold Award for best innovative ingredient in the industry, as it promotes a healthy lifestyle almost working as a personal trainer. It redefines our body areas that are most sensitive to sagging due to aging, post-pregnancy, insufficient physical activity such as abdomen, arms and thighs. Its mechanism of action, induces adiponectin release from adipose tissue, enhancing metabolism of type I muscle fibers and mitochondrial activity. Volunteers with sedentary lifestyle saw visible reductions such in abdomen contour (up to -2.8 cm, 28 days) and thighs (up to -2.1, 56 days) and it got even more impressive results when combined with exercise.

Exopolysaccharide (EPS) produced by a planktonic microorganism: takes advantage of the circadian rhythms and targets nocturnin in adipocytes, a protein involved in adipogenesis and lipid accumulation during the night. It also helps to reinforce the dermal matrix, enhancing the firmness of the skin and improving its tone. Studies show that almost -1 cm of reduction was obtained in just 15 days and -1.5 cm in 30 days.

Fit Curves Coach Peptide: This peptide, which is encapsulated in a new submicron scale delivery system, reduces the differentiation of preadipocytes and thus the accumulation of fat in adipose tissue. Fatty nodules responsible for cellulite decrease as well as the surface irregularities of the skin, showing off a more smooth and uniform skin. (+21% in 3 weeks).

Ultra Hydrator Peptide: This hexapeptide improves the water flow from the epidermal basal layer to the stratum corneum to preserve and increase the rate of skin hydration. How does this work? This ingredient increases the levels of Aquaporin 3 in keratinocytes, aquaglyceroporin responsible for ensuring the transport of water and then, contributing to maintaining skin barrier integrity. The results that have been tested, show that the skin is strongly hydrated (131% in 2 months), showing a replenished and supple appearance, looking more radiant and rejuvenated.

DNA Guardian Peptide: This two time awarded hexapeptide, is one of our star ingredients. It protects DNA from damage, stimulates its natural repair pathways and enhances cellular longevity and vitality. Cellular aging is reverted, and UV-mediated DNA damage is diminished (-16.6% in 24 h).

Gravity Fighter Peptide: This tetrapeptide fights sagginess by enhancing key elements to the assembly of elastin and several collagens and overexpressing genes involved in cellular adhesion. The dermis is significantly more structured and firmer, so it better resist the effects of aging while it improves the quality of the normal to mature skin.

Eyes Enlightener Peptide: A tetrapetide with a decongesting effect that fights against edema formation, due to poor lymphatic circulation or high capillary permeability. It inhibits collagen glycation, preventing the loss of elasticity and eyebag formation. It quickly reduces puffiness and increases skin elasticity (+30% in 1 month) around the under eye area and also lightens up dark circles by improving micro circulation in the area.

Cellulite Killer Peptide: A functional ingredient composed by anti-cellulite ingredients in multivesicular liposomes, that help to improve their penetration. Its lipolytic activity work on the fact by inhibiting adipocyte maturation while its venotonic effect improves the microcirculation. Studies containing this ingredient, have shown that cellulite is both reduced and prevented.

Melanin Blocker Peptide: Hexylresorcinol is a compound based on Resorcinol derivative, with excellent results on the reduction of skin’s dark spots and skin brightening, with no irritation effects. It decreases melanin formation at very early stage of melanin synthesis, tyrosinase activity in skin melanocyte, decreases melanosome transferring to Keratinocytes, promotes desquamation of the superficial horny layers and melanin pigmentary residues contained therein.
