Benefits of AGE Smart Multivitamin Thermafoliant:
Gently polishes off dulling skin cells to reveal smoother, fresher skin immediately. Thermal technology activates upon contact with water to drive beneficial ingredients further into skin. Provides antioxidant protection while suppressing the formation of AGEs. Inhibits collagen-degrading MMPs while conditioning skin. Skin looks and feels dramatically improved and smoother.
Dermalogica Recommended Skin Type: Mature or prematurely-aging skin
Dermalogica Recommended Application: After cleansing, apply to damp skin in circular motions for 1 to 2 minutes, avoiding the eye area. A more intense result can be achieved by using directly on dry skin. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and sponges. Use two to three times per week.
Key Ingredients of Dermalogica Age Smart Multivitamin Thermafoliant:
Magnesium Oxide, Silica and Sodium Bicarbonate: a fine mineral powder blend that polishes away dead skin cells to help minimize fine lines and improve the overall texture of skin. Removes excess cells that impede penetration of active ingredients.
Lactic Acid and Salicylic Acid: alpha and beta hydroxy acids that stimulate exfoliation of cells, leaving a smoother skin surface.
Opuntia Ficus Indica (Prickly Pear Cactus) Flower: boosts activity of skin’s natural desquamation enzymes that are responsible for breaking desmosomal cell attachments.
Retinol (Vitamin A), Tocopherol (Vitamin E) and Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (Vitamin C): pure Vitamin A (stable in this anhydrous formula) helps reverse the signs of aging by normalizing cells and stimulating new collagen formation while gently exfoliating. Vitamin E helps smooth skin while a stable form of Vitamin C stimulates skin strengthening collagen.
Camellia Sinensis (White Tea) Leaf: polyphenols protect skin from ROS while inhibiting collagen-degrading MMPs and the formation of AGEs.
Glycine Soja (Soybean) Seed: a potent antioxidant that fights ROS, reduces inflammation, inhibits MMPs and stimulates new collagen synthesis while inhibiting the formation of AGEs.
Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root: an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant extract that soothes and calms skin. Helps reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation.
