Essential Oils & Key Ingredients

Helichrysum – Calming | Soothing | Regenerating

SYN®-AKE – Is an effective synthetic peptide that was developed by the Swedish company Pentapharm Ltd. This ingredient designed to fight aging is a synthetic form of snake venom. It replicates the effects of a peptide that is known as Waglerin 1, which is a component of the venom found in the Temple Viper, a poisonous snake native to Southeast Asia.

SYN®-AKE works by reducing muscular contractions in the face and reduces cell movement; thereby keeping the skin smooth. The concept behind SYN®-AKE is that since snake venom causes muscular paralysis, a synthetic derivative of the venom would work to temporarily deaden the muscles in the face to prevent the formation or deepening of wrinkles.

It both tightens the look of skin and helps to reduce the muscle contractions that cause crow’s feet, parentheses around the mouth, and forehead lines. Working to inhibit the transmission of impulses that cause those muscles to tense up, it begins to smooth and relax the look of those wrinkles.

Studies have shown that using SYN®-AKE for four weeks, twice a day can smooth the look of wrinkles by more than 50%. This active peptide is exceptionally effective and has been tested thoroughly. It is compared to measures like Botox; it can provide similar results without even having to get an injection.

Matrixyl™ 3000 –  Is an anti-aging peptide produced in France, trademarked by Sederma Inc., and is the first anti-aging element based on the technology of Matrikine peptide. Comprised of two peptides matrikines palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7 and palmitoyl tripeptide-1. The two peptides function synergistically by signaling cells to generate more collagen and elastin in the under-layers of skin. It increases fibroblasts in the skin which stimulates glycosaminoglycan cells to strengthen the connective tissue to firm aging complexions.

PEPHA®-TIGHT – Is a highly purified biotechnologically produced extract from the microalgae Nannochloropsis oculata combined with a well-balanced fraction of polysaccharides.

I'm so happy with your products. Like I said a few days ago, my skin has been dry my whole life, but within a few days of the serums it hasn't felt dry at all. My pores look smaller, and my wrinkles are slowly fading!


Being a senior and as our bodies age and droop I am using this product and amazed that it actually tightened up wrinkles from the forehead and around the eyes and I have no reaction to the product what so ever --I look forward every day to use it--Im starting to look younger! Yeah!


This serum is AMAZING! I had two deep wrinkles on my forehead that have bothered me and are now way less visible. I cannot afford botox, this product was recommended so I gave a shot even though it is still a bit pricey for my budget. It actually works! I’m impressed.
