Additional CosMedix Products Information
Beauty isn't just skin-deep: Below the surface, the collagen and elastin tissues are important factors in keeping skin smooth and free of lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging skin. The formulas of CosMedix Firming/Cellulite Products provide skin tissues with the ingredients they need to maintain their youthful strength and to encourage the production of new cells. These ingredients are carefully selected and balanced to provide the pure, potent compounds derived from natural sources. The formulas are also kept free of artificial colors and preservatives, to help prevent irritation and allergic reactions.
Working with the skin's own structure, CosMedix Body Shape provides the compounds the tissues require to regain their strength, balance and smooth appearance. The formula contains a range of carefully selected and balanced botanical extracts and oils and other plant-derived ingredients that moisturize, soften, exfoliate, purify and promote the growth of entire layers of the skin structure. Emollients include jojoba seed oil (from the desert-loving Simmondsia chinensis plant), cocoa seed butter, sunflower seed oil and caprylic/capric triglyceride (derived from coconut, which also helps prevent moisture loss while it encourages a healthy skin cell turnover). One of the key ingredients is astaxanthin, a carotenoid (a plant pigment) that has strong antioxidant activity, more than 500 times that of vitamin E. It also provides protection against the sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Since UV rays are one of the causes of the breakdown of collagen and elastin tissues, astaxanthin protects the skin tissues against future damage. Resveratrol, a plant derivative, also provides antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits.
