Orchid Stem Cell
Orchistem is derived from stem cells of the Calanthe discolor orchid native to Japan, which communicates with adipose derived stem cells encouraging the secretion of growth factors to stimulate the synthesis of collagen and elastin.
In vivo it shows impressive results in reducing jawline volume for a sculpting effect and reduces the ‘droop’ of eyelids for a more open eyed and refreshed look.
To emphasise the ‘connected’ communication angle, Orchistem is claimed to be the first cosmetic ingredient with its own Instagram account!
Communication is essential. The optimal functioning of our skin also depends on good intercellular communication, which is altered with age and is one of the factors associated with aging.
Orchistem stimulates adipose tissue-derived stem cells for them to produce a secretome rich in growth factors.
This secretome is full of growth factors for the fibroblasts to increase their production of elastin and collagen and their migration and proliferation.
Orchistem are orchid stem cells from the Calanthe discolour plant, an orchid native to Japan.
Several in vitro tests confirmed that cellular communication among stem cells of Orchistem, skin stem cells and fibroblasts, resulted in an increase in the production of collagen and elastin.
Two in vivo studies were conducted in order to check the efficacy of Orchistem on the skin.
The first one showed excellent results in only 14 days reducing and lifting the jawline, redefining the facial oval.
In the second in vivo, we measured other parameters with very nice results as well.
We quantified the lifting and eye-opening effect.
Orchistem provides an elevating lifting effect of 10 % on the upper eyelid that rejuvenates the eyes.
This boosting effect of collagen and elastin synthesis improved firmness, elasticity and glow. The skin also recovered the luminosity it had 14 years ago.
Finally, a visible anti-wrinkles effect was also assessed.
With Orchistem, improved intercellular communication results in a visible anti-ageing effect, firmer and brighter skin, a redefined contour and a younger look.
Salicylic Acid might just be the magic potion your skin routine needs to fight pimples. It’s the acid most commonly found in overnight, get-rid-of-pimples-quick products, as well as several exfoliators. But before you try acid, even at a very low, very safe dose, it’s best to know what exactly you’re putting in your pores. Dr. Robyn Gmyrek, a dermatologist at Union Square Laser Dermatology broke down everything there is to know about the acne fighting product
What is salicylic acid?
Salicylic acid is an organically derived, (from the Willow tree) beta-hydroxy acid. It is lipophilic which means that it is an oil soluble acid that can penetrate pores.
What does salicylic acid do?
Salicylic acid is anti-inflammatory, keratolytic (helps exfoliate dead skin cells), anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. It penetrates pores to loosen clogged follicles by breaking apart dead skin cells, softening them, and helping them slough off the skin.
Tea Tree Oil
Tea Tre Oil comes from the leaves of a small tree native to Australia, Melaleuca alternifolia.
Tea tree oil has been used as a traditional medicine by aborigines for centuries. These native Australians crush tea tree leaves to extract the oil, which is then inhaled to treat coughs and colds or applied directly to the skin for healing.
Today, it is widely available as a 100% undiluted or “neat” oil. Diluted forms are also available, ranging from 5-50% strength in products designed for the skin.
Tea tree oil contains several compounds that have been shown to kill certain bacteria, viruses and fungi, including one which also appears to increase the activity of white blood cells, which fight germs and other foreign invaders in the human body.
These germ-fighting properties make this amazing oil a valued natural remedy for treating bacterial and fungal skin conditions, preventing infection and promoting healing.
