The NEWest addition to the Dermalogica AGE Smart line! Dermalogica MultiVitamin Thermafoliant is a powerful skin polisher which combines physical and chemical exfoliants to refine skin texture and enhance penetration of age-fighting vitamins into skin. Resurfacing microgranules gently polish off dulling skin cells to reveal smoother, fresher skin immediately. Dermalogica’s unique thermal technology plus Lactic Acid activates upon contact with water to stimulate cell turnover, while Prickly Pear Extract accelerates skin’s natural exfoliation process. White Tea suppresses the formation of collagen-degrading MMPs while Licorice and vitamins A, C and E brighten skin tone, provide antioxidant defense against damaging free radicals (Reactive Oxygen Species) and help promote skin firmness.
How it works:
- Thermal technology activates upon contact with water to facilitate absorption of nutrients and active ingredients into skin.
- Gently polishes off dulling skin cells to reveal smoother, fresher skin immediately.
- Contains potent antioxidants that fight ROS, reduce inflammation in skin, inhibit collagen-degrading enzymes (MMPs) and stimulate new collagen synthesis while inhibiting the formation of AGEs.
Achieve absolute hydration and help defend against the internal and external causes of skin aging with this medium-weight, emollient daily moisturizer with SPF30. A patented polypeptide combined with Glucosamine and Soy stimulates collagen synthesis, enhances the skin’s natural ability to fight skin-aging free radicals (Reactive Oxygen Species) and helps prevent the signs of aging caused by sugar reacting with proteins in skin (AGEs). White Tea polyphenols regulate the formation of collagen-degrading MMPs brought on by UV rays while tripeptides, stabilized Vitamin C, Yeast Extract and Phytoestrogens help catalyze the skin’s natural collagen production to enhance skin firmness. Advanced sunscreen technology provides critical protection from daylight exposure, yet blends smoothly into skin to create a perfected finish. Contains no artificial fragrance or color.
How it works:
- Arginine/Lysine Polypeptide acts as a sugar trap, binding sugars in the body to prevent the formation of Advanced Glycation End-products (AGEs) that lead to stiff, cross-linked collagen.
- Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 is a skin-firming peptide that overrides the inhibitory effects of MMPs on collagen synthesis. Activates tissue growth factor (TGF), a peptide that is required in its active state for collagen production to occur.
- Glucosamine fights AGEs while stimulating formation of Hyaluronic Acid and collagen in skin. Inhibits melanin formation to help control age-related hyperpigmentation. Provides long-lasting hydration and reinforces skin’s natural moisture barrier.
- Provides critical protection from daylight exposure, yet blends smoothly into skin to create a perfected finish.
