What is Skin Boost TxTn® Texture and Tone Enhancer?
DERMATICA Texture and Tone Enhancer Skin Boost TxTn is a multi-tasking day/night cream. The day cream has brightening boosters and the night cream has resurfacing boosters with antioxidants like Vit C, Vit A, and Vit E. It re-texturizes the skin surface, fades discoloration, brightens the skin, and provides deep skin renewal while protecting it from free radical damage.
The main active ingredients
Undecylenoyl Phenylalanine – If you have pigmentation issues, Undecylenoyl Phenylalanine is something to look at. It is an amino acid (Phenylalanine) derived molecule that is thought to hinder the pigmentation process in a unique way by being a so-called MSH-antagonist.
MSH stands for Melanocyte Stimulating Hormone, and as you have probably guessed by its name, it is important in the process of melanogenesis, i.e. the generation of melanin pigments. MSH binds to a receptor on the melanocyte (the skin cell that creates melanin) called Melanocortin 1 Receptor (MC1R), which kicks off a bunch of biological processes that result in the formation of pigment. Our guy, Undecylenoyl Phenylalanine can hinder this binding and thus the whole melanin creation process afterward.
The efficacy of the molecule is definitely promising. The manufacturer did several in-vitro (in test tubes) and in-vivo (on people) tests and found Undecylenoyl Phenylalanine to be more effective than a bunch of well-known skin-lightening molecules, such as arbutin, kojic acid or MAP (the vitamin C derivative).
Tranexemic Acid for the skin can act as a brightening agent to reduce dark spots and improve hyperpigmentation, this is because tranexamic acid interferes with melanin production.
Niacinamide – Builds skin immunity. The components of niacinamide are restorative. They help restore the cellular energy of the skin’s cells and repair damaged DNA.
Alpha Arbutin – is a derivative of hydroquinone that can be made either synthetically or obtained from various plants in the Ericaceae family such as marjoram, cranberry, blueberry, and pear. It is a naturally occurring skin-brightening agent that inhibits the secretion of melanin (skin pigment), thus making it a great skin brightener.
Retinol Moist – ROVISOME Retinol Moist cosmetic active is formulated to deliver a high concentration of pure retinol (> 3.000.000 IU/g) to deeper skin layers. ROVISOME Retinol Moist is characterized by excellent stabilization of the cosmetic active within the ROVISOME delivery system. The stability of the encapsulated retinol was measured by HPLC analysis at different temperatures over 24 weeks, with results demonstrating that ROVISOME Retinol Moist can provide significantly better retinol stability. At the same time, in vivo tests illustrate how enhanced skincare benefits were achieved when using retinol with the ROVISOME delivery system’s topmost skin layer.
Retinol, the purest and most active form of vitamin A, is an established ingredient for providing several skincare benefits. It has been shown to help support collagen, counteract the signs of wrinkles, and impart an improved appearance of skin. Despite retinol’s benefits, its wide adoption has been limited by its high cost and difficulty to stabilize. ROVISOME Retinol Moist cosmetic activity helps to address these challenges by providing excellent stabilization of the retinol; it also helps to improve its efficacy through delivery into deeper skin layers.
Bio Marine Peptides – hydrolyzed elastin from marine origin. Thanks to a special hydrolysis process, the long protein chains are cut and transformed into small peptides, poly peptides, and amino acids that can penetrate the skin.
With BIO MARINE ELASTIN, we can offer the skin, the precursors (peptides and amino-acids) used by the fibroblasts to increase their synthesis of elastin, thus promoting the formation of new elastin for the skin.
Lecithin – Collagen is an essential protein that helps in providing structure to your skin. It is what keeps your skin plump and youthful. Collagen production in the body declines with age leading to saggy, dull, and fragile skin. Lecithin is proven to stimulate collagen production to enhance skin elasticity and restore healthy skin.
