For more on this groundbreaking technology in a cleanser, read on!
17 amino acids
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Just as you cannot make a loaf of bread without flour, your skin cannot make proteins like collagen, elastin, and fibrin without amino acids. Considering that collagen, elastin, and fibrinogen are the structural components that keep your skin firm, wrinkle-free and supple, it’s important to make sure that you get enough amino acids in your diet and your skin care!
When you apply amino acids to the skin, it has been shown in multiple studies to have significant effects, ranging from antioxidant and boosted UV protection (Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology, 1999), to the promotion of tissue repair (Journal of Clinical Investigation, 1993), to conditioning the skin (Conditioning Agents for Hair and Skin [book], 1999).
AminoGenesis Really, Really Clean Cleanser contains propylene and butylene glycol, which are not all that common to find in a cleanser. These glycols help to increase the penetration of the ingredients into the skin (Cosmetic Dermatology, 2010), including Preventhelia and amino acids.
Second, AminoGenesis Really, Really Clean Cleanser contains TEA sulfate, not SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate). Just because it is called “sulfate” does not mean it is bad! Rather, “bad” comes from the charges. TEA sulfate is a non-ionic/non-charged sulfate, which means that it is a non-charged bubble-making cleansing agent that is gentle for the skin. Keep in mind that non-ionic surfactants have been established to be safe for the skin, far more than SLS and other ionic sulfates.
AminoGenesis Really, Really Clean Cleanser also contains Preventhelia.
Preventhelia® is a peptide complex. This tetrapeptide complex protects the skin from damage caused by UV radiation to DNA and proteins, which may prevent skin from showing signs of photoaging like fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and age spots. Preventhelia® specifically neutralizes a type of free radical species known as 4-HNE, one of the most abundant and cytotoxic. It is therefore believed that Preventhelia® may prevent DNA damage (Lipotec; Monaster.AU).
AminoGenesis Really, Really Clean Cleanser is a must-have product, with 17 skin-beautifying amino acids, glycols, and the anti-aging super complex Preventhelia®. Together, these make AminoGenesis Really, Really Clean Cleanser a new protector in the fight to help prevent the visible signs of aging, as it helps ton neutralize oxidative free radicals, helps protect the skin against abuse of the elements, and may help to improve overall skin appearance over time. It’s an essential backbone of any skin care regimen!
