Why Peptides? Research on peptides was demonstrated to firm skin and stimulate collagen production at the American Academy of Dermatology research conference in 2002. Peptides are short chains of amino acids that are biologically active and act on Collagen in a variety of ways to slow the aging process. Research shows that incorporating peptides into your daily skin-care routine can help reverse or prevent signs of aging. In short, they signal and encourage skin to create collagen rather than allow it to break down. This can slow down and even stop the wrinkling process. Other peptides are used to block the release of chemicals that cause muscle contraction and therefore smooth wrinkles. This can work in a more natural way compared to botox. BlackBox uses a combination of the best researched and tested Peptides at their highest effective levels that show significant action in reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
Why Retinol? Most dermatologists agree, Retinol is vital to any anti-aging skin-care regimen. It decreases fine lines, evens skin tone, improves texture, tightens pores, and stimulates blood flow and collagen production. It encourages skin cell turnover to reveal new and more youthful looking skin. This in turn helps promote collagen production by removing dead skin cells so new, healthier cells are able to come to the surface. Your complexion will look smoother and other anti-aging nutrients are able to sink deep into the skin and repair collagen. Dead skin cells are tougher to penetrate, making retinol and its exfoliating properties a very effective anti-aging compound. EO Retinol has the most effective form of Retinol and at the highest effective percentage. We use Retinol Microcaps, which keep the nutrients protected and at their strongest concentration as well. Once applied the microcaps dissolve and are absorbed by your skin at their highest potency.
EO Hyaluronic Acid/Vitamin C (Advanced Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate) formula utilizes the most superior forms of these two vital nutrients. We infused them into a combination of 100% pure organic essential oils like… Frankincense, Lavender, Litsea Cubeba, Tangerine, and Orange (known for their legendary benefits to aging skin), Organic Jojoba Oil and Fractionated Coconut carrier oils, advanced CoQ10 in the form of Ubiquinol, our proprietary combination of penetration enhancers, and other nutrients. This wonderful product is preserved with non-toxic Grapefruit Seed Extract and Vitamin E.
Why Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C? Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is found naturally in every cell in the human body. 50% of our body’s HA is in our skin, both in deep underlying dermal areas as well as the visible epidermal top layers. Young skin is smooth and elastic, containing large amounts of HA to help keep the skin staying young and healthy. HA provides continuous moisture to skin by binding up to 1000 times its weight in water. Vitamin C is crucial in repairing and healing skin cells. It is a powerful antioxidant that slows the rate of free radical damage that causes destruction to Collagen, which in turn causes skin breakdown and wrinkles. New research shows it even reverses DNA damage to skin that causes skin cancer. Vit. C is a necessary component of Collagen production. Therefore a combination of HA and Vit. C are vital to maintaining the skin’s layers and structure. It is collagen that gives skin its firmness, but it is HA and Vit. C that nourish, protect, and hydrate Collagen. Without HA and Vit. C, Collagen loses its elasticity causing sagging and wrinkling skin. With age, the ability of the skin to produce HA and Vit. C decreases. Adding them back in with EO HC is imperative.
