A face cream, that became facial skin
We all long for healthy, beautiful skin. We’d like our facial skin to be hydrated and toned, with a balanced metabolism, good circulation, and a natural skin tone, making it look soft and flexible. Therefore, we do the utmost to achieve these goals and produce the most effective cosmetics.
One of the pillars of the effectiveness of cosmetics is creating a composition identical to human skin.
We now know the skin on the molecular level, therefore we know exactly what building blocks it’s made of and what’s required for its optimal function. This knowledge inspired me to create the DRHAZI range of cosmetics with a composition identical to human skin. I believe that this new approach will open a new dimension in beauty care.
Where did I take my inspiration from?
A healthy body produces A PERFECT CREAM for us, which protects the human skin. This is none other than an emulsion of water (hydro) and fats (lipo), known as the hydrolipidic film. If we take this as a model, we can create cosmetics with a composition identical to human skin.
1. THE LIPO COMPONENT OF FACIAL CREAM
The lipo component of the cream produced by the human body consists of an optimal ratio of the following molecules: triglycerides, fatty acid esters, fatty acids, squalene, diglycerides, cholesterol esters, cholesterol, ceramide and phosphatidylcholine. In the case of skin problems, there is always a divergence from the optimal composition and the oil component of the creams recommended for various skin types should be structured accordingly.
In the case of problematic skin, the sebum has an increased oleic acid content, due to which the sebum stimulates keratin production, clogging the hair follicles thus preventing the evacuation of sebum and leading to the creation of comedos. In such cases, we use regenerative oils with a low oleic acid content, structuring the cosmetics in a way which establishes the balance of the skin.
• It’s important to ensure that the basic ingredients of the cosmetics are "FINE" AND "PRECIOUS": jojoba, macadamia, shea butter, evening primrose, avocado, wheat germ, etc. These ingredients are combined with active agents appropriate to the skin type in question: sea buckthorn, pomegranate, rose-hip, borage, perilla, etc.
• These are in turn supplemented with high-tech active agents: Squalane, Ferulic acid, Ceramide, Gamma oryzanol, L-proline, Stearic acid, Lecithin-based liposome complexes, etc., which greatly enhance the effectiveness of the composition.
2. THE WATER COMPONENT OF FACIAL CREAM
The water component of the hydrolipidic film forms a protective, acidic layer, which includes water, lactic acid, free fatty acids, amino acids, pyrrolidone carboxylic acid, hyaluronic acid and urea.
- These active agents can only be produced with HIGH-TECH BIOTECHNOLOGY in a form which can be integrated into the skin on the cellular level.
- The 4 various-size molecule versions of plant-based hyaluronic acid support the hydration of the skin in a range of different ways.
The skillful use of these active agents can facilitate the effective integration of the lipo component and the active agents into the skin.
3. SKIN STRUCTURE BUILDING ELEMENTS
The flexibility of healthy skin is ensured by the healthy structure of the dermis, which consists of the inactive cells of the dermis and the extracellular matrix of multi-layered, double row lipids. The bordering layers consist mainly of ceramides, cholesterol and palmitic acid.
- The regeneration of the damaged dermis can mainly be achieved by Ceramides, which are produced in the epidermis of the skin and are deposited into the dermis on approx. the 28th day of the skin cell’s life-cycle. The decrease of this amount in the skin is in direct proportion to the increase of harmful skin conditions.
- The birth and movement of new skin cells must be supported and protected, as they can make the cells particularly sensitive to detrimental environmental factors (free radicals, UV-radiation). The liposome and nano-some transfer systems (hydrogenated phosphatidylcholine) are of great significance in this regards along with modern natural antioxidant (Stable Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Ferulic acid, Totarol, etc.) active agents.
- Over time, the collagen fiber of the skin loses its flexibility, thus making it more rigid and decreasing its ability to retain water. This is particularly noticeable in the skin around the eyes and mouth. The main source of plant-based collagen are the leaves and fruit of the (Australian) acacia tree, which can provide a better structure for the fiber supporting the skin, resulting in prettier facial contours.
Modern rejuvenating active agents
Apart from ensuring a composition identical to human skin, it’s important for cosmetics to contain high levels of active agents.
Did you know that common cosmetics contain 2-3% of active agents, with the rest consisting of carrier materials? On the other hand, professional cosmetics can have an active agent content of 10-15%.
In the case of the cosmetics with a composition identical to human skin, even the base materials are active agents and the effectiveness of the products can be enhanced with special active agents.
TRANSMITTER NANO-PEPTIDES – THE MIRACLE OF CELLULAR-LEVEL REGENERATION
Peptides created for specific purposes represent the new age of innovate active agent production. These often have a rather brief structure, consisting of merely 4-5 amino acids. These short peptides have a SIGNAL MOLECULE function and only effect the function of the targeted cells, in precisely the intended manner.
They attach themselves to the appropriate receptors of cells, where they form INTERNAL SIGNAL TRANSMISSION CHAINS, which can modify the function of the cells, e.g. stimulating or inhibiting the production of various proteins.
The special targets of the rejuvenating peptides include the fibers of the dermis, particularly those of elastin and collagen. A protein network of collagen and elastin is responsible for maintaining the tightness and youthfulness of the skin. Some peptides stimulate the fibroplasts to produce collagen and elastin, thus resulting in INTENSIVE CELLULAR RENEWAL in the skin. This regeneration has a spectacular and lasting effect.
According to the number of participating amino acids, we can differentiate dipeptides, tripeptides, tetrapeptides and oligopeptides.
• TRIPEPTIDES activate the inactive TGF-ß (Tissue Growth Factor), thus stimulating collagen synthesis.
• OLIGOPEPTIDES stimulate GAG (glycosaminoglycan) and collagen synthesis, facilitating the reinforcement of the collagen network. The fibroplast cells receive a signal through the peptides, activating the production of collagen and elastin, resulting in intensive cellular renewal. The new fibers have a greater capacity for retaining water, thus cushioning the skin from the inside and smoothing the wrinkles of various sizes visible on the surface. In order to provide enhanced biological access, a palmitoyl side chain is attached to the protein, which usually consists of 3 or 4, or sometimes 6-8 amino acids.
• MATRIXYL 6 is a transmitter peptide which regulates cellular activity. It activates genes which play a role in the renewal of the connective tissue and cells. Thanks to its effect, the depth of wrinkles can decrease by up to 45% percent under two months.
• BIOMIMETIC PEPTIDES assist the physiological activation of the main support structure of the dermis and the epidermis. They impede the aging of the skin, boosting and reinforcing traits typical of young skin. Argireline impedes the release of acetylcholine at the nervous ends, thus preventing the pathological contraction of muscle fiber and the formation of mimicry wrinkles. Mimicry wrinkles lose 30% of their depth under 28 days.
LIPOSOMES FACILITATING THE INTEGRATION OF ACTIVE AGENTS
These is coupled with new, modern carrier substances in which the active agents attached to special molecules can pervade the lipid layer in order to release the active agents attached to them where they’re needed. This is a highly important development. Liposome active agents of this nature include, for example, Lacto-ceramide and Coenzyme Q10, as well as the generally beneficial LIPOSOME COMPLEX, which is included in the recipe to help all the active agents with a composition identical to the skin to reach their various destinations.
PLANT EXTRACTS, AROMATHERAPY ESSENTIAL OILS
Only life can yield life. Plants have been the foundation of all ancient cultures and herbs have been used in the field of medicine for thousands of years. Natural, beneficial plant extracts are gentle to both mankind and the environment.
The quantum physics and molecular biology of modern science are also capable of achieving this miracle, thus allowing us to consciously use optimal plant-based compositions in our cosmetics.
Conscious skincare is important
The biotech active agents working on the cellular level are highly suitable for renewing the skin, yet a fundamental requirement of their use is that they must be produced in a combination with safe, healthy and beneficial carrier materials. The skin mustn’t be supplied on the cellular level with even a single drop of chemicals, which is why it’s important that the cosmetics created in this manner have a 100% natural composition.
Active agent cosmetics in practice
Our experiences show that once you use active agent cream for the first time, you’ll have a sense for weeks and days that it’s practically “eating up” your skin and it’s simply not enough. This is indicative of the fact that your facial skin has been deprived and is in grave need of nutrients. However, the good news is that your facial skin replenishes itself and once it’s full of volume, it will make do with a far lower amount of active agents than before.
That is precisely why it’s recommended to use a hydrating, regenerative facial cream during the day, as the facial creams are made with an emulsifier – the emulsifier combines the water faze with oils, creating an emulsion: a facial cream. The emulsifier – even if it has a composition identical to human skin – will dissolve the skin’s own sebum and even remove the oil it supplies in the process. This is great for day-time care, as the environmental impurities are dissolved from the pores of the facial skin, yet its disadvantage is that it cannot replenish the dermis or treat deep-layer dehydration.
Therefore, we recommend using a toning milk for the night with a composition of oils identical to human skin. This pairing contains all water-soluble active agents and oil-soluble active agents without an emulsifier. The water-soluble active agents nourish and regenerate the skin, whilst the composition of oils identical to human skin is superbly absorbed and can give volume to the dermis night after night.
