AminoGenesis Counter-Clockwise Eye Treatment is designed to help repair and restore undereye skin to its glory. With a mix of skin-plumping triglycerides and glycerin, and collagen-stimulating amino acids embedded in quick-penetrating witch hazel and butylene glycol, this is surefire hit!
Long-term, the amino acids in AminoGenesis Counter-Clockwise Eye Treatment have been shown to help prevent UV damage, nourish and repair the skin, and to hydrate.
Glycerin is a natural moisturizing factor (NMF), mimicking the skin’s structure and function, as well as a humectant moisturizer, binding with several times its weight in water from the environment (Dr. Leslie Baumann, M.D.).
Glycerin strengthens the skin barrier by speeding up skin cell maturation and turnover (International Journal of Cosmetic Science, 2003).
Like agents like mineral oil or petrolatum, glycerin also makes the skin less vulnerable to transepidermal water loss (TEWL) by expanding both skin cells called corneocytes and intercellular lipids within the skin (Treatment of Dry Skin Syndrome: The Art and Science of Moisturizers).
How to Use
Apply under eyes morning and evening after cleansing. Avoid direct contact with eyes and eyelids. For external use only. Review ingredients for known allergies. For best results use with other AminoGenesis™ products.
I like the treatment a lot for hydration and keeping the skin firm and supple under the eyes.
