The Science Behind the Product
The skin, or dermis layer, on the neck is thinner, more delicate and more prone to wrinkling and signs of aging than the skin on your face and other parts of your body. Because the dermis is thin, there is not as much collagen in the skin, which helps keep skin plump and smooth. As well, the neck has fewer sebaceous glands, which secrete oil and help moisturize skin and keep it from drying. These factors, combined with the many movements that the neck muscles perform, accelerate the aging appearance of the neck. The neck requires specialized moisturization and extra anti-aging help to keep the skin on the neck firm, hydrated and youthful.
Lifting & Firming Neck Cream includes proprietary anti-aging complex, SenePlex+, in addition to vitamins, powerful anti-aging ingredients and natural botanical extracts to work at a cellular level to help plump, hydrate, smooth wrinkles and even skin texture. Upon immediate application, skin looks and feels plumper, smoother and more hydrated. With use over time, skin is noticeably firmer, lifted, and bouncier. The Neck Cream offers a dramatic before and after effect and helps neck and jawline to look firmer and more sculpted.
In addition to SenePlex+, which works to increase cellular renewal by 23.3%, the Neck Cream formula is infused with several highly effective, cutting-edge technology complexes of anti-aging and restorative benefit. One of these complexes, Vexel SP™, helps firm, smooth and reduce slacking of skin, especially on the décolletage, thanks to the synergistic action of two molecules- caffeine and palmitoyl carnitine.
Additionally, the complex called Essenskin™ does double duty to help increase cellular renewal, restructure and fortify the fragile, thin skin of the neck. It helps mature skin regain its density, firmness, elasticity and smoothness.
Finally, Actificol™, a blend of a shiitake mushroom-based extract and skin beneficial ingredients such as potassium sorbate and phytic acid, helps boost collagen in skin, while helping to decrease the degradation of collagen. Collagen is a key protein which is responsible for imparting tensile strength to the skin, keeping it firm and plump.
This powerful complex has been clinically shown to increase type I collagen synthesis in the skin by 36.6%, while decreasing the degradation of type I collagen by an amazing 75.9%, helping skin to become visibly firmer and smoother over time.
Additional botanical extracts and oils such as Macadamia Nut Oil, Sunflower Extract, Rosemary Leaf Extract, and Grape Juice Extract help condition, hydrate, and protect skin, while caffeine helps to revitalize skin.
