Power C High Potency Vitamin C Treatment Drops
Vitamin C: Zelens uses a stable oil-soluble form of Vitamin C (Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate) at 20% concentration. This ester boosts collagen production, brightens the skin by inhibiting melanogenesis (the production of pigment) and demonstrates strong antioxidant activity. Unlike ascorbic acid, Vitamin C ester will not exfoliate or irritate skin.
Phospholipids: Major building components in the structure of any cellular membrane essential for all vital physiological processes. These natural skin-identical ingredients demonstrate moisturising, restructuring and protective properties.
Sterol complex: A blend of vegetable-derived esters structurally similar to skin lipids. Demonstrates moisturising, conditioning and repairing properties. Reinforces skin barrier function.
Omega-3 and Omega-6: Essential fatty acids derived from safflower oil. Help restore and maintain lipid barrier function and balance the moisture of the skin. Omega acids act as skin protectors and revitalisers.
Soybean sterols: Phytosterols derived from soybeans are lipid molecules with strong biomimetic and soothing properties. Structurally similar to skin natural lipids, these sterols moisturise skin, reduce water loss and strengthen natural barrier function.
Glycolipids: Lipid molecules analogous to the intercellular lipids of stratum corneum (SC) demonstrate structuring, repairing and protective properties. Strengthen the barrier function and hydro-retaining capacity of skin.
Proprietary botanical blend: This unique botanical blend contains 6 plant extracts (Broccoli, Guava, Acerola, Kiwi, Kale, Blackcurrant) rich in Vitamin C.
Vitamin E: An antioxidant with a key role in the protection of cellular membranes from free radicals. It is the major antioxidant in the human epidermis with strong protective effects against UV-induced skin damage.
Geranium oil: An essential oil extracted from the plant Rose geranium. This oil possesses antioxidant and antiseptic properties. It helps to balance the secretion of sebum and clear oily skins. Traditionally it has been used for years to help healing of wounds, burns and ulcers.
Z Firm- Lifting Face & Neck Cream
Contains 6 potent active ingredients and a proprietrary firming botanical blend that work in synergy to tighten the skin and promote its firmness by strengthening collagen architecture.
Triterpenes are organic compounds produced primarily in plants. Z Firm contains three specific triterpenes (betulin, betulic acid and jujubosides), which are known for their firming, anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and wound healing properties.
Phytosteroids are naturally occurring molecules produced in specific plants. Z Firm contains phytosteroids from Maral root, which strengthen collagen structure by inhibiting the activity of metalloproteinases (enzymes responsible for the degradation of collagen).
Syn-Hycan® is a patented tripeptide that boosts the production of hyaluronic acid (HA) and thus promotes firmness. This potent peptide also stimulates the expression of two proteoglycans (decorin and lumican), which increase the strength and quality of collagen resulting in a firmer skin.
This sesame-derived protein demonstrates an instant tightening effect with a noticeable reduction in the appearance of wrinkles. Effectively provides long-lasting moisture.
Protein from Argan
The Argan (Argania spinosa) is a tree that only grows in the south of Morocco. The oil extracted from the kernels of this tree (Argan oil) has been traditionally used for hundreds of years due to its healing, anti-inflammatory and regenerative properties. Z Firm contains a protein fraction isolated from the argan oil. This active molecule demonstrates an instantly perceptible tightening effect and noticeably reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
Organic silicium-based compounds. Help to reconstruct skin architecture by stimulating collagen production and enhancing cellular communication between keratinocytes and fibroblasts.
Zelens Firming Botanical Blend
This proprietary botanical blend, specially formulated for Z Firm, is composed of active molecules extracted from 6 plants, which help promote skin firmness and elasticity. The unique blend is composed of: Ginseng (Panax ginseng), Green coffee (Coffee Arabica), Rock fennel (Crithmum maritimum), Gotu kola (Centella asiatica), Soya bean (Glycine Soja) and Horsetail (Equisetum arvense).
