Keeping skin smooth, firm, even-toned and glowing with health is a goal of every woman concerned with maintaining a beautiful complexion. It can be a difficult goal to achieve, working against the damage caused by the environment – particularly from exposure to the sun's ultraviolet radiation – and the natural process of aging. Fortunately, the line of StriVectin AR skin care products offer a combination of powerful, proven bioactive ingredients that help to restore and maintain skin health.
Based on decades of scientific research and confirmed by clinical trials, these formulas help the skin to naturally renew itself, attaining a healthy rate of skin cell turn-over so that damaged skin is quickly replaced by new, healthy cells. The proprietary patented ingredient NIA-114 combined with the famed anti-aging power of Retinol work together to help renew and strengthen skin tissues. The benefits of NIA-114 include both its own anti-aging benefits, but also its ability to help deliver the bioactive ingredients deep into the epidermis, where it helps to boost the effectiveness of retinol. StriVectin AR formulas represent a powerful advance in cosmeceutical technology.
Additional StriVectin AR Information
As skin ages, the production of collagen and elastin cells that provide the supporting structure for skin tissue begins to decline. As a result, lines and wrinkles begin to form as the skin loses its firmness. At the same time, the environment places strong stresses on the skin, causing dryness and uneven skin coloration and increasing the rate of line and wrinkle formation. The best solution – and the most natural one – is to encourage the skin tissues to maintain the production of new, fresh, healthy skin cells. This not only replaces the signs of surface damage, but helps to renew the supporting collagen and elastin deeper below. The difficulty is in delivering the right bioactive ingredients into the skin to help trigger this cell renewal process.
Researchers at StriVectin have discovered that a special form of niacin (also known as vitamin B3), originally developed to help with wound repair in hospitals, offered a solution for this cosmeceutical problem. Known as NIA-114, this molecule has been carefully designed as a unique micronutrient delivery system to pass through the lipid matrix of the skin barrier, carrying the Retinol along with it, deep into the skin tissues. There it converts to a form of nicotinic acid while the Retinol changes into retinoic acid; together they help to enhance the skin tissue metabolism, stimulate repair to DNA damaged by solar radiation and free oxygen radicals and also to inhibit the production of melanin, to reduce skin discoloration. These marvelous formulas are effective with all skin types and colors.
