Ethocyn Intensive Antioxidant Serum
- Multiaction Firming Serum
- Recommended for uv damaged / very dry skin
Ethocyn Intensive Antioxidant Serum is a Multiaction Firming Serum for noticeably dry, damaged, and/or stressed skin. This unique serum contains the patented scientific skincare breakthrough ingredient Ethocyn in its clinical efficacious dose, and was principally developed for skin that exhibits the skin aging effects of repeated exposure to environmental harms––such as UVA and UVB radiation (sun rays), pollution, and melanin discoloration. To combat such stresses, this Intensive Serum contains the same effective arsenal of ingredients as the Ethocyn Ultra Serum -- plus the extensively researched antioxidant Astaxanthin:
Astaxanthin, which is derived from super phytoplankton, is an extraordinary protective and reparative ingredient that significantly soothes inflammation, protects collagen and elastin fibers, and delivers potent reparative benefits to the skin. Astaxanthin has been scientifically proven to quench singlet oxygen reactions and suppress lipid peroxidation much more effectively than other well-known antioxidants, and thus controls the presence of ROS (radical oxygen species). Singlet oxygen depletes the antioxidant defense system of fibroblast cells, especially CAT and SOD (catalase and super oxide dismutase). Astaxanthin is approximately 100-200 times more effective than other caratenoids––including lutin and beta carotein (1.0 µM). This ingredient also effectively softens the skin’s surface by increasing the size of its stratum corneum cells, and was found effective (p<0.05) in reducing age spots via in vitro documented inhibition of melanogenesis. This inhibitory effect is superior to that induced by Vitamin C (5mg/ml), and comparable to that induced by transexamic acid (5mg/ml) or L-cysteine (0.1mg/ml) –– which are agents commonly used in dermatological therapy. Astaxanthin has been shown in healthy subjects to significantly reduce burn level (erythema) as well, and is thus ideal for skin that has been exposed to or damaged by the sun.
How to Use
Apply to face and neck directly after cleansing, twice daily. Wait at least 30 seconds before applying other desired products (such as foundation or SPF).
The serum may be used instead of a moisturizer (in which case cover the entire face and eye area).
This super-boosted serum is ideal for twice a day application, or to use at night for a more intensive reparative treatment.
