While carrying out clinical research in the 1980s, two American scientists became aware of the dramatic improvements that topical applications of vitamin C made to the elasticity and smoothness of the skin. They noticed that the benefits of vitamin C were greatly enhanced when it was combined with zinc and tyrosine. From this research, the patented complex that lies at the heart of Cellex-C was born.
Through clinical studies, topical applications of L-ascorbic acid, a form of vitamin C, have been shown to penetrate skin cells and increase the body’s synthesis of collagen. This vital protein is an essential building block for the skin, helping it to remain firm and smooth. However, collagen levels naturally fall as skin ages. L-ascorbic acid is the key ingredient in Cellex-C’s patented complex. Applying Cellex-C serums each day can help to replenish levels of collagen and support the underlying structure of the skin.
In order for L-ascorbic acid to support the creation of collagen in the skin, the body also needs access to zinc and tyrosine. Zinc is an essential component of collagenase, an enzyme that helps to break the peptide bonds in old, stiffened collagen. Zinc levels drop as the skin matures. Tyrosine is an amino acid that assists in the process of skin cell renewal. Cellex-C’s patented complex ensures that optimal levels of zinc and tyrosine are delivered with L-ascorbic acid to allow it to repair and revitalise the skin.
L-ascorbic acid is a potent antioxidant, which can assist in the reduction of free radicals that can damage skin cells and contribute to the signs of premature ageing. Regular applications of L-ascorbic acid can lighten and brighten the skin by fading age spots and addressing the signs of photodamage caused by excessive sun exposure.
Because Cellex-C makes changes in the underlying structure of your skin, visible results will become noticeable after two to three months. Fine lines will begin to smooth out and the skin will become more flexible and resilient. Independent clinical studies report that continued use of Cellex-C progressively improves the texture and appearance of the skin.
You can incorporate Cellex-C serums into your existing skin care regime. However, to optimise the benefit of these potent therapies, you may prefer to adopt a skin care regime based entirely around Cellex-C skin care products. From cleanser to moisturisers, each item in the range has been formulated to work in a complementary manner. Cellex-C offers complete anti-ageing skin care regimes for every skin type, including sensitive or acne-prone skin.
