First, what causes aging skin?
Our skin is under constant attack by external and internal factors like UV light, pollution, stress and free radicals, which damage the DNA within each skin cell. The body works to fix this damage, but that internal repair mechanism slows down over time. When damaged DNA is not fixed before the skin cell replaces itself, the damaged DNA is copied into the new skin cell. Imagine a copy machine that is making copies of a blurry original - over time the copies themselves become unreadable.
What Does Aging Skin Look Like?
Contrary to popular belief, crows feet and fine lines are not the only sign that skin is deteriorating. When DNA degeneration occurs, skin loses buoyancy, brightness and uniformity, creating the appearance of aging skin. Our complexion begins to show signs of wear and tear in our early teens, not only taking the form of wrinkles, but even manifesting in seemingly harmless ways like hyperpigmentation and dryness.
The Science of DNA Repair Enzymes
Marine microalgae - a single cell organism found in the Mediterranean Sea - has a very strong DNA repair process to be able to withstand harsh environmental factors. Those same DNA repair enzymes support and improve the repair and replication process in our skin to fix damaged DNA before it can be incorrectly reproduced. In the copy machine analogy, the repair enzymes remove the flawed scan and replace it with a healthy clear one, all while increasing the machine’s efficiency.
ProD.N.A. with GenoMatrix
The ProD.N.A. line is built upon GenoMatrix®, a revolutionary formulation of those same powerful enzymes derived from marine microalgae and a complex of natural active ingredients. This proprietary concentration penetrates deep within the layers of skin to support the body's natural DNA repair mechanism to counteract the effects of aging from the inside out.
