The Jivesse Marine Collagen Cream contains the highly effective humectant, Glycerine. Humectants are known as being hygroscopic which means they attract and retain moisture from the atmosphere via absorption, drawing the water vapour into and beneath the skin's surface. Glycerine maintains the skin’s water balance leaving it feeling softer, suppler and overall healthier. The glycerine in the Jivesse Marine Collagen Cream draws up moisture through the skin layers and prevents excessive drying. This keeps the skin elastic and thus plumps up and tightens the epidermis.
Anti-oxidants are molecules that can interact with free radicals to stop a chain reaction which can lead to damage of vital molecules in the skin. In order to understand the role of antioxidants we first need to look at free radicals.
A free radical is an atom that comes singularly or in a group and contains an odd number of electrons. Free radicals are produced when food is digested or you are exposed to external pollutants such as cigarette smoke. Once a free radical is formed a destructive chain reaction could start. Free radicals cause dryness and increase fine lines and wrinkles on the epidermis. The damage to cellular components is dangerous, and in order to prevent this from occurring, the body uses antioxidants.
The Jivesse Marine Collagen Range uses multiple anti-oxidants throughout. One of the main antioxidants found in all three products that will counteract the damage on the body is Vitamin C. The human body cannot produce Vitamin C, and so it must be introduced via external means.
The Kakadu Plum, in the Jivesse Marine Collagen Cream, contains the largest amount of Vitamin C found in any plant. As well as protecting the skin against free radicals, Vitamin C aids the growth of cells and blood vessels and contributes to the strength and firmness of the skin.
Co Enzyme Q10 is another antioxidant present in the Jivesse Marine Collagen Capsule. This works to counteract oxidative damage to cells caused by UK sun rays, pollutions, toxins and stress. Co Enzyme Q10 is found in every cell in the body; it is used to promote cell growth and energizes healthy cells. The enzyme is multifunctional; it rejuvenates the skin cells and simultaneously stimulates an increase in collagen production.
Essential Plant Extracts/ Oils
The Jivesse range also has numerous essential plant extracts that provide a natural form of benefits.
The Jivesse Marine Collagen & Essential Herb Elixir includes one of those essential herbs, namely ginseng. Ginseng is known for its ability to contribute to rejuvenating the skin. Within the Jivesse Elixir the extract has a dual functionality, it treats existing wrinkles and aged skin, while also acting as a preventative technique to delay ageing symptoms for younger women.
It is in the Jivesse Elixir that you will also find Aloe Vera plant extract. Being high in vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin A, B12 & E, Magnesium and Zinc, aloe vera is a versatile skin remedy that is used in the nutricosmetic world. The extract hydrates the skin and promotes skin renewal, giving the dermis youthful luminosity.
The Jojoba Seed Oil increases elasticity levels in the skin as well as minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. Whilst the extract in the Jivesse Marine Collagen Cream works to reduce the more apparent signs of ageing, it is also a common ingredient used to treat skin problems such as acne, blackheads and pimples. The extract also adds stability to the product to ensure.
The Jivesse Marine Collagen Range contains a number of the Vitamins that your body uses to function to its best ability. The following Vitamins can be found in abundance in a full dose of the Jivesse Marine Collagen Capsule. Vitamin A is an antioxidant, which can help reduce the appearance of dark circles under the eyes.
Vitamin B6 specifically is most commonly known for its ability to catabolize (break down molecules into smaller units, releasing energy) amino acids found in the cells. Amino acids are vital nutrients that nourish skin, hair and nails. They work to sustain the smoothness of the skin and increase skin elasticity. Vitamin B3, also known as Niacin, increases the skin's ability to retain moisture, and acts as an exfoliant to help skin regenerate. As the newer skin cells move towards the surface skin will have a natural youthful glow.
It is vital to have the right amount of Vitamin D in the body as it regulates fibroblast growth factor, which determines the ageing of skin. The Vitamin D3 in the Jivesse Capsules, works to improve skin texture, and thus reduce the signs of ageing.
