Refresh & Rejuvenate Your Eyes - Instantly
Perfectace Retinol Anti-Ageing Eye Serum has been developed by experts to provide skin firming and anti-wrinkle properties, protecting the vulnerable skin around the eyes against visible signs of ageing. This smooth, lightweight cream formula penetrates skin, with instant effects, leaving skin feeling soft and soothed with a youthful appearance.
Developed by skincare experts with clinical knowledge of dermatology, Perfectace Retinol Anti-Ageing Eye Serum contains two potent, active ingredients that collectively tighten, smooth, moisturise and lifts skin, minimising the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines – instantly whilst illuminating skin revealing a more even-toned complexion.
The Beauty of Perfectace Retinol Anti-Ageing Eye Serum
Whilst the key active ingredients in the Perfectace Retinol Anti-Ageing Eye Serum are absorbed deep into the skin, the cream continues working, providing a layer of moisture on the surface ensuring skin remains supple hours after application. The cream is enriched with Liftonin® Xpress which protects the extracellular matrix of the dermis counteracting the loss of firmness and moisture that occurs in the skin over time which would typically lead to wrinkles.
Liftonin® Xpress is an innovative, instant tightening and lifting active ingredient that is based upon a revolutionary transfer of technology. Various types of wrinkles that are visible and measurable are minimised by creating a physical tightening and smoothing effect on the skin. The polymers in the product form a three dimensional network on the skin which ensure strong adhesion and cohesion capabilities of this active ingredient. The result is an immediately noticeable, long lasting tightening effect as well as a quick and significant smoothing of wrinkles. The inclusion of Liftonin® Xpress can result in:
Perfectace Retinol Anti-Ageing Serum also contains 5% ILLUMISCIN®, which is scientifically proven to be effective against age spots whilst providing an illuminated, even skin tone. ILLUMISCIN® is a balanced composition of Oleuropein, stabilised Vitamin C and Zinc PCA which systematically combats the two pigments responsible for the occurrence of age spots, Melanin and Lipofuscin.
A new in-vivo study was carried out in European winter (first month) and spring (second and third month). This placebo-controlled, double-blind and randomised study reveals that following the application on the back of the hands ILLUMISCIN® has a lightening effect on age spots under winter sun (depigmentation) and inhibited new pigment formation under spring sun (re-pigmentation). It could also be demonstrated that ILLUMISCIN® controls age spots without lightening the surrounding skin: the lightening effect on age spots is much stronger than on surrounding skin areas.
Thus the efficacy of ILLUMISCIN® is based on a triple effect: minimisation, lightening and fading-out of age spots. This distinguishes ILLUMISCIN® from conventional skin lighteners which reduce the colour of the age spots and the adjacent skin simultaneously.
The active ingredient thus prevents the formation of age spots in a unique way. In addition, it also successfully reduces the size of existing age spots and diminishes their contours. The skin tone is evened out, and skin looks radiant again.
Active ingredients in ILLUMISCIN®
- Oleuropein from olive leaves prevents the formation of the ageing pigment lipofuscin in the skin cells and protects against the development of age spots.
- Zinc PCA activates the vitamin C transporter so vitamin c can be taken up more efficiently by the skin cells and exhibit a better inhibitory effect on melanogenesis.
- Vitamin C in a stabilised glucosidic form prevents the formation of melanin by inhibiting tyrosinase (the key enzyme in melanogenesis) at an early stage.
How ILLUMISCIN® works
Age and sun are the main factors initiating the formation of age spots. Associated with this is the development of the sun-induced pigment melanin and the age-related waste pigment lipofuscin. ILLUMISCIN® prevents the formation of both pigments and is thus highly effective against age spots.
Retinol Anti-Ageing Eye Serum with Added Cherry Water & Rosewater
Free radical cell damage causes premature skin ageing including fine lines & wrinkles. The best way to help slow down visible signs of ageing on skin is to apply antioxidants to the skin. Antioxidants help to effectively fight against free radical cell damage. Both cherries and rose water are loaded with vitamin A and C. Vitamins A & C act as antioxidants making cherry water and rose water rich in antioxidants and perfect for helping keep fines lines & wrinkles at bay.
Their antioxidant properties also help to strengthen skin cells and regenerate skin tissues whilst helping hydrate, revitalise and moisturise skin for a fresh-looking complexion.
Is Retinol Anti-Ageing Eye Serum Right for Me?
The skin around the eyes is thinner and therefore more susceptible to visible signs of ageing. Constant movement of the eyes can accelerate the appearance of lines & wrinkles. Fluids can also accumulate underneath the eye causing dark circles and puffiness. This serum is formulated specifically to deal with the issues that affect this delicate skin around the eye.
This formulation immediately lifts and tightens skin around the eye for instant results, without the need to boost collagen production. It works with what the body already has and enhances it. It’s a revolutionary way to defy age that is scientifically proven to work.
The Science behind Retinol Anti-Ageing Eye Serum
Studies have shown that within 1 hour of application Liftonin®-Xpress:
- Smoothes various types of wrinkles around the eye area, forehead and hands
- Improves the micro relief in the eye area, hands and arms
- Provides an immediately noticeable and sustainable tightening effect
Liftonin®-Xpress Smoothes Wrinkles and Improves Microstructure in the Eye Area (in-vivo study)
21 female subjects aged 49 – 64 years of age (average 59); gel with 3 % Liftonin®-Xpress vs. placebo (0 % Liftonin®-Xpress); single application in the area around the eyes; measurement before and 1 hour after application. Result: Liftonin®-Xpress significantly smoothes the wrinkle volume (– 31 %) as well as the roughness (– 12 %). The maximum reduction of the
Here it can be seen on human skin that within 1 hour of application of Liftonin Xpress 3% (which is the concentration used within Perfectace Anti-Wrinkle Firming Cream) skin was visibly tightened. Results were instant and lasted hours.
ILLUMISCIN® Prevents the Formation of Lipofuscin (in-vivo study)
Method: Determination of lipofuscin by means of autofluorescence.
Implementation: Cultivation of human skin cell that produces the protein Keratin and incubation with 0.5 μg/ml oleuropein (0.0001 % ILLUMISCIN®), control group not treated with active ingredient.
Result: ILLUMISCIN® successfully prevents the formation of lipofuscin. After 2 days, the lipofuscin content is 53 % lower compared to stressed, untreated cells. Even after 7 days the lipofuscin concentration is still reduced by 41 %.
ILLUMISCIN® Reduces the Size and Contour Contrast of Age Spots (in-vivo study)
Method: Determination of the area and contour contrast of facial age spots by means of high resolution digital imaging.
Implementation: Twice-daily application of a water / ethanol solution of 6 % ILLUMISCIN®, treatment period 3 months, 21 test subjects of Caucasian skin type, age: 50 – 67 years; high resolution digital images taken on day 0, 14, 28, 56 and 84.
Result: ILLUMISCIN® effectively reduces the size and contour contrast of age spots (data not shown).
ILLUMISCIN® Promotes Depigmentation and Prevents Re-pigmentation of Age Spots (in-vivo study)
Method: Measurement of age spots depigmentation by determination of melanin index using a Mexameter MX18.
Implementation: Twice-daily application of a cream with 3 % ILLUMISCIN® on one hand vs. placebo on the other hand over a period of 12 weeks, 10 female volunteers (Caucasian skin) with at least 2 age spots on the back of each hand: age 52 – 60 years (average 56.7 years). The melanin index was determined on day 0, 14, 28, 56 and 84.
Result: ILLUMISCIN® continuously reduced the melanin content of age spots under winter sun (until day 28) and inhibited new pigment formation under spring sun (d 56 and 84). It hence provides spot lightening (depigmentation) and lessens spot darkening (re-pigmentation). It could also be demonstrated that ILLUMISCIN® effectively controls age spots while not excessively whitening the surrounding area (data not shown).
The Importance of Skincare
The skin is the largest organ of the body. Consisting of three layers, its outer layer is the body’s first line of defence against infection and the environment. In order to help keep this barrier strong, skin must be kept healthy and moisturised. Harsh skin care products can damage the outer layer of skin, stripping essential lipids and moisture. Therefore, undertaking a proper skin care regime daily can help preserve this important protective layer.
Skin constantly undergoes cell renewal, as old skin cells die and new ones form. Skin’s health is influenced by every aspect of life, from what we eat to where we live. Healthy skin is more able to fight against visible signs of ageing as well as heal faster compared to unhealthy skin, therefore skin’s health is of the upmost importance.
But we cannot stop skin ageing. With age, skin loses elasticity and begins to sag. UV exposure also takes its toll on skin, damaging skin cells, accelerating the skin’s ageing process. But a superior skin care regimen of antioxidants, natural cleansers and moisturisers, can help slow down the effects of time and the harmful environment.
As mentioned, cleansing is necessary to remove accumulated daily dirt and dead skin cells. But cleansing can dry out the skin as it removes the skin’s natural oil which retains moisture. Consequently, moisturisers are needed to restore water in the skin and protect it.
When it comes to moisturisers, we are spoilt for choice. Many people nowadays opt for the all-natural moisturisers. These contain an abundance of antioxidants which help fight against premature skin ageing and natural-derived nutrients that nourish the skin – helping relieve dryness and improve elasticity enabling skin to feel soft, smooth and appear youthful. Vitamin E is often included in good skin care products as it helps moisturise the skin. It also maintains elasticity. The type of moisturiser used is important as well. Consider your skin type and how it would react to an oil or a cream. Both provide moisturising benefits, but one may work better for you than the other.
Good skin care requires not only cleansing and moisturising but good habits too. A healthy diet packed full of nutritious foods will help improve skin elasticity. Applying sun protection daily with a minimum of SPF 15 will help to minimise UV damage to skin. Drinking water helps the body to function better, cleans pores from the inside and hydrates the skin helping it stay moist. Maintaining good habits alongside good skin care will help skin age gracefully and beautifully.
