Synchrovit C - The Science

Why do we age?

The skins ageing process is a combination of factors, but typically the skin’s ability to retain moisture reduces as lipid density in the upper skin layers is lost and hyaluronic acid levels in the dermis reduce. This can lead to binding of collagen fibres and reduced elastin levels. Also new collagen and elastin production decreases, so the skin loses elasticity and firmness resulting in lines, wrinkles, dry and sagging skin. The speed this happens varies with each individual; genetics have a lot to do with it; but this is only part of the story.

Free Radicals

Living your life, including drinking alcohol, consuming food, smoking and exercising all create damaging chemicals (known as free radicals) that fuel the ageing process. UV exposure especially generates a lot of free radicals in the skin.

Superoxide is the most powerful and most damaging free radical produced in the skin. Free radicals damage cell walls, blood vessels, cell DNA and break fibres. They also cause inflammation which can lead to increased pigment production and a more reactive skin, prone to redness and swelling. This can lead to thread veins, age spots and darker areas.

What other companies will not say

Antioxidants are chemicals which can neutralize free radicals, reducing the damaging effects on fibres and cells. However, the extremely active free radical Superoxide, cannot be neutralized by any antioxidant formula. It is only when it eventually converts itself to the less active hydroxyl free radical, that it can be neutralized, by which time it has done significant damage.

The ENZYME Solution

Synchrovit® C is a serum which contains Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), Vitamin C (l-ascorbic acid) and Zinc.

Superoxide Dismutase is the naturally occurring enzyme which forces superoxide to convert immediately to the hydroxyl radical. This allows the vitamin C to neutralize it, meaning less damage to the skin. Zinc boosts the activity of SOD and Vitamin C.

This revolutionary anti-ageing face and neck enzyme treatment stops ageing and skin damage before it starts, but also remarkably stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin fibres to improve skin tone and elasticity.

  • Reduces expression lines and wrinkles and delivers a toned compact youthful looking skin
  • Reduces exposure to free radical ageing and damage
  • Effectively reduces excess pigmentation whether caused over time, from sun exposure or following inflammation
