Our Precious Ingredients

Gold (24 carat) - is well know for the skin healing process: for restoring the lost elasticity of the tissues, stimulating cellular growth of
the basal layer to regenerate healthy, firm skin cells. It provides a tightening effect for a young & radiant looking skin.

Caviar Extract - is very rich in vitamins A, D, B , trace elements as well as amino acids. Those ingredients intensify the metabolism of the
skin cells.

Pearl nacre extract - contain actives which have positive effect on skin: they stimulate the production of specific growth factor which activat the cutaneous functions. Skin will become brighter and firmer.

 

​Champagne - High-grade champagne extract activates and promotes the skin’s natural protection and regeneration processes.

The result: the skin regenerates faster, and the ageing process is slowed down.

Our Maine Cosmeceutical (Active) Ingredients

Arbutin (bearberry extract) - Blocks the melanin biosynthesized by inhibiting enzymatic oxidation; this results in a lightening of the skin and a reduction in liver spots, and weakens the tanning effect after exposure to UV rays.

Calmosensine®​ - A powerful peptide, Calmosensine® produces a 63% increase in the synthesis of the precursor of endorphins, the so-called “molecules of happiness”, by the keratinocyte cells (in vitro test conducted by Sederma on the relaxing effect of Calmosensine in October 2003). Skin is thoroughly relaxed and looks radiant, resplendent with beauty.

Chondroitin sulphate - obtained from fish cartilage, Chondroitin sulphate is the most common mucopolysaccharide in the human body. It is an essential component of cartilage.

 

Coenzyme Q10 or CoQ10 - ​​​​​​​​​​​ ​is an antioxidant to boost skin repair and regeneration and reduce free radical damage. As we age, our body's production of CoQ10 begins to decrease at around 30 which results in inability to produce collagen, elastin.

CoQ10 can aid in the prevention of free radical damage caused by environmental damages such as UV rays, pollution and smoking. CoQ10's small molecular size is easily absorbed by the skin. Main source is from grape seed, avocado, and soy bean. ​​

CoQ10's reduces 'crow's feet' around the eyes with long-term application, and protect against premature aging due to sun exposure. CoQ10 can increase cellular rejuvenation and structure to improve elasticity and firmness, reduce wrinkle depth and boost your skin's immune system against environmental damage.

 

Hyaluronic Acid - was discovered 60 years ago. Its name relates to its transparency (the Greek word for glass is hyalos).The interest in using this as bioactive ingredient in skin care products increased after having discovered that the level of hyaluronic acid of the epidermis decreases as we grow old. Hyaluronic acid is the most superb moisturizer and penetrates into the deepest part of the skin within 30 minutes, also acting as a carrying agent for other ingredients. Apart from moisturizing, it also binds the moisture in the skin and controls tissue hydration - thereby imparting a more youthful looking skin. It helps to smooth out wrinkles and lines, and at the same time boosts the health of the cells, stabilizing the structure of the cells as well. Furthermore, it helps to keep the skin elastic and supports the collagen - the foundation of the skin - and fights inflammatory conditions of the skin, which may cause premature aging. Due to its structure, hyaluronic acid forms an invisible film on the skin, transparent and elastic, with profound action on tissue level. Its role is to preserve the most important characteristics of the young and healthy epidermis: softness, elasticity and tone 

 

Marine Elastin - elastin and Collagen are the skin proteins responsible for elasticity, tone and texture. Cellular renewal decreases with age, the epidermis becomes thinner and those main constituents, Elastin and Collagen, degrade. This breaking-down of collagen and elastin in the dermis causes stretch marks, loss of tone, fine lines and wrinkles appearance. Collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycans from the sea world are essential molecules from the dermis and the epidermis. They have essential properties for the well being of our skin. 

Myoxinol - a active obtained from hibiscus flowers, is claimed to work biologically to retard the ageing of cells (anti-radical) and mechanically to inhibit facial muscle contraction, preventing the formation of horizontal and vertical frown lines, crow's feet around the eyes and naso-labial lines around the mouth.

Natural beta-caroten - its effects are channeled into: - moisturizing action: helps moisturizing, smoothens the skin, regulates skin keratinization processes, reduces harmful effects due to environmental factors; - improves cell activity: stimulates cell regeneration; - it improves the skin aspect: it increases skin elasticity, prevent appearance of wrinkles.

It gives a smoothing, toning and lifting effect to the skin, slowing down the ageing processes.

 

Peptides (Argireline, Calmosensine) - Neurotransmitters in natural repair processes . It has also been clinically proven to increase circulation and also improves skin tone; the peptides complement one another in repairing skin damage caused by age Activate new synthesis of the extracellular matrix, so ensuring a visible anti-wrinkle effect, and an improvement in the skin's elasticity and tone.

 

Squalane - A naturally occurring human-skin sebum that increases skin respiration while preventing water loss. A high-grade emollient derived from olive oil with excellent mechanical moisturising properties.

Vegetable DNA - used for its stimulating properties especially of cell restoration. It has a barrier activity y for the skin against cell impairment phenomenon and sun radiation. Thanks to its great ability of retaining water, vegetable DNA is able to give a very interesting hydrous contribution for tissues.

Vitamin A - Retinol: has a regulating and regenerating activity on the cells. Boosting the cell metabolism, the vitamin A improves the condition of mature skins and encourages the cells to renew themselves. It protects the skin for the UV caused damages . and prevents the wrinkles formation.

Vitamin C - to protect the skin and help boost collagen. Apart from the fact that vitamin C is an anti-oxidant and therefore helps to prevent oxidative stress and premature aging, it is also required for the synthesis of collagen in the skin - collagen can be seen as the foundation of a healthy and young looking skin.

Vitamin E - is converted to its real active form, free vitamin E (tocopherol), in the skin; protects against oxidative damage to the skin and therefore premature skin ageing by blocking free radicals; improves the corneous layer's ability to bind water and reduces water loss in the skin; smoothes the skin's texture.

Our Maine Ingredients

Brown Algae (Laminaria digitata) - This 2-m long alga belongs to the Laminariaceae. To protect themselves from the stress they undergo during low tide periods, Brown Algae have a protective skin containing polysaccharides. These agents are known for their ability to limit inflammatory skin reactions and thus reduce irritations and maintain the skin barrier by protecting Langerhans cells (immunoprotective
barrier). This active principle also enhances the action of the hydrolipidic film and thereby prevents dehydration as it binds moisture in the horny layer and boosts the remanence of the moisturizing effect.
