Phytoplex -The Solution

There are many factors that contribute skin damage. Some of these are:

  • External factors - Continence, Radiation, Medications, Contact with detergents/soaps, Mechanical stress, Everyday drying conditions
  • Internal factors - Slowed cell replication due to aging, Nutritional imbalance, Decrease in protein synthesis, Increase in proteolysis, Hormonal changes, Obesity, Fatigue, Disease

Phytoplex blend represents the latest advances in biotechnology and molecular biology. It was developed to soothe and nourish the skin, help protect from free radical damage and act as a structural moisturizer in the stratum corneum. Phytoplex Hydraguard Skin Cream is a blend of all-natural ingredients from botanical and marine sources. These ingredients penetrate into the skin surface to modulate activity that carries the potential to positively affect the skin matrix. Phytoplex helps replenish elements and nutrients at the skin surface which might be diminished by external or internal factors.

Science Of Phytoplex

Phytoplex system focuses on dry skin, redness and oxidative stress that have the potential to disrupt skin surface barrier function. Phytoplex help mitigate these negative effects by maintaining conditions that are necessary for normal skin function. Phytoplex helps nourish, moisturize and soothe skin.

Nourishing and Soothing:

  • Naturally found blue-green algae is extremely rich in vitamins, proteins, essential fatty acids, antioxidants and carbohydrates.
  • Soothes, refreshes and uplifts the skin

Structural Moisturizing:

  • Phytoplex helps restore tight junctions between keratinocytes, thereby reducing porosity and preventing moisture loss.
  • Proteins and polysaccharides from the yeast extract increase the moisture retention capacity of the skin and restore moisture balance. Soy proteins are film formers and help reduce moisture loss. Also, they function as natural humectants, attracting moisture to the skin from the environment and from lower skin layers.
  • Phytoplex includes encapsulated Vitamin D. Encapsulation helps stabilize the vitamin and permits efficient delivery to the skin surface due to a small electrostatic charge that possesses the affinity to negatively charged surfaces (such as skin) thereby enhancing adherence to it.

Protecting against free radical damage:

  • Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Clove Flower Extract and Green Tea Extractarepowerfulantioxidants that help protect skin surface from reactive oxygen species.
  • Helps to soothe and comfort the skin by reducing redness.
