ALA - POWERFUL ANTI-AGING

ALA: (Alpha-Lipoic-Acid) - A completely natural molecule found in every cell in our body. ALA is a potent antioxidant that is even more powerful than vitamin C, and increases the effectiveness of  Vitamins C & E. A study published in the Global Cosmetic Industry Journal, showed that Alpha-Lipoic Acid, being both water and fat soluble, can effectively fight free radical damage in all parts of your skin cells.

ALA also has a proven ability to affect skin cell metabolism, being found naturally in the mitochondria (or energy-producing portion) of our cells. Most importantly, as we age the accumulation of glycated collagen (AGE's) from cross-linked glucose (sugars) becomes stiff and inflexible, leading to the wrinkles, sagging, and loss of elasticity of older skin.

The addition of Alpha Lipoic Acid in skincare products activates a collagen regulating transcription factor called AP-1 that turns on enzymes that that digest glycation-damaged collagen, for reduction of wrinkles and scarring.
