Luzern Laboratories: Formulating Principles
1. Pharmaceutical Grade Ingredients
When formulas are classified as pharmaceutical grade, it means that active ingredients are present in much higher levels than in typical, over the counter products. Ingredients in these levels are powerful in fighting the effects of aging and maintaining a healthy, radiant complexion. Ingredients such as Coenzyme Q10 and Vitamin C found in Luzern products at pharmaceutical grade guarantee the greatest benefit to the skin. Luzern products contain an average of 80% Bio-Active ingredients 8 times above the average of other brands.
2. Certified Swiss Extracts
Luzern products contain organic extracts from plants grown in harsh Alpine conditions. These conditions allow accumulation of higher concentrations of nutrients and antioxidants, which fight the effects of free radicals in the environment that lead to aging. The Bio-Swiss cultivation and special extraction processes used to obtain these extracts preserve their integrity and nutrient content.
3. Preservative Free & Pure Processing
The anti-aging effects of many products are counteracted by the addition of chemicals and synthetic preservatives. Luzern products are free from commonly used additives such as parabens, petrochemicals, formaldehydes, color and fragrance, which can cause irritation, inflammation and pre-mature aging. Using a pure processing system means that ingredients remain unaffected, and are able to maintain potent activity in order to achieve superior results.
Luzern Laboratories: Top 10 Anti-Aging Cosmeceuticals Actives
The innovative Biodyne TRF molecule assists in the skin cells uptake of oxygen and stimulates healthy cell growth and reproduction. Oxygen helps in detoxification and increases new cell turnover, as well as helps in the production of collagen and elastin in the dermis. The amount of oxygen present in the skin drops significantly as we age. However, well-oxygenated skin not only functions better, but appears much more supple and radiant. Luzern has encapsulated the Biodyne molecule in liposome form to allow it to travel deep into the skin to where it is needed. There, it helps to repair age related skin damage by improving collagen synthesis and increases cell renewal for healthy younger looking skin.
2. Coenzyme Q10
This super antioxidant is an essential component for all cellular activity. It is the catalyst that provides the energy that skin cells need for collagen and elastin production. In addition, it also helps the cells to absorb and utilize nutrients properly, as well as fight free radicals. The body's ability to produce Coenzyme Q10 decreases with age, and hence the skin becomes more prone to developing signs of aging. Luzern's high-tech, time-released liposomes help to deliver Coenzyme-Q10 deep into the skin.
3. Swiss Stem-Cells
Swiss Apple Stem Cells can preserve and protect the skin's stem cells. PhytoCellTech - an innovative plant cell culture technology allows cultivation of stem cells from the rare Swiss apple. Swiss apple stem cells are rich in metabolites and essential factors that ensure longevity of skin cells as well as helping to preserve skin firmness and youthfulness.
4. Niacinamide B3
Niaciniamide B3 is a super-nutrient which helps to treat various skin concerns. It interacts with skin cells and stimulates damaged cells to undergo self-repair. During the process, production of skin conditioning lipids and ceramides is increased, cellular micro-circulation is improved, and breakdown of collagen is inhibited.
Peptides are chains of small protein molecules that function as messengers within the skin. They penetrate the skin easily and stimulate the skin's natural repair process, which triggers rebuilding of the dermal matrix and protects the cells from further damage.
6. Na-R-Lipoic Acid
Potent antioxidants which improve cellular energy production and reduces inflammation. R-Lipoic Acid provides powerful antioxidant protection, and also helps other antioxidants, such as Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Coenzyme Q10 to function more effectively.
7. Vitamin C
Vitamin C stimulates collagen production and protects the skin from environmental damage. Vitamin C works to gently exfoliate the skin, giving the skin a more even tone and radiance. Luzern formulations utilize both water and fat soluble versions of Vitamin C to ensure delivery of the most potent and stable form of this antioxidant powerhouse.
8. Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic Acid occurs naturally in the skin to help it stay smooth and supple due to its ability to hold water and keep the skin properly hydrated. The level of hyaluronic acid decreases with age, therefore, the skin starts to lose its ability to retain moisture and signs of aging such as lines and wrinkles and loss of skin elasticity start to appear. Luzern formulations restore the level of hyaluronic acid in the skin to help skin regain its suppleness and youthfulness.
9. Alpha-Hydroxy Acid
Luzern's Apha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) are specially derived from French Chardonnay grapes, which undergo fermentation processes to produce highly refined AHAs. The AHAs gently exfoliates to renew and rejuvenate the skin, which results in smoother, radiant looking skin.
10. Metabiotics Resveratrol
Metabiotics Resveratrol is a powerful novel bio-active produced via fermentation of the small molecule, resveratrol. This active helps to prevent inflammation of the skin and maintains the skin's structural integrity to achieve healthy looking skin.
