Oxygen Species (ROS, also known as free radicals), the generation of Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMPs) and the development of Advanced Glycation End-products (AGEs).
reactive oxygen species (ROS)
Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) are dangerous oxygen molecules generated by UV rays and pollution. They attack and react with stable molecules within skin cells, cause non-reversible damage, cross-link collagen and elastin (the cause of wrinkles) and lessen skin’s natural ability to repair itself.
To defend against ROS:
AGE Smart® products include antioxidants, including polyphenols from White Tea, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (MAP – a highly stable, non-irritating form of Vitamin C), Licorice and Vitamin E that work to inactivate free radicals and create stable molecules, preventing damage to the cell.
matrix metalloproteinases (MMP)
Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMPs) are enzymes activated by UV exposure or inflammation. They contribute to the breakdown of existing collagen while inhibiting the formation of new collagen. Long term activation of MMPs results in disorganization and destruction of the skin matrix – two key characteristics of photoaged skin.
To control the formation of MMPs:
AGE Smart® products include peptides, MAP, Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A) and powerful plant extracts.
advanced glycation end-products (AGEs)
The same glucose (sugar) that provides energy for our cells can also react with proteins, including the skin’s collagen. This reaction results in the formation of Advanced Glycation End-products (AGEs), which can contribute to loss of elasticity, wrinkles, inflammation, inhibited skin cell growth and accelerated aging.
To control the formation of AGEs:
AGE SmartTM products include “sugar traps”: Soy proteins, Glucosamine and specific peptides intercept the sugar, bind to it and prevent sugar from reacting with collagen protein in skin.
