The Biomimetic Polymer Breakthrough—ageLOC Tru Face® Essence Ultra Uplifting Cream
The pollutants, allergens, free radicals, and other irritants your skin encounters on a daily basis cause it to prematurely age and lose its youthful radiance. The gases and soot motor vehicles release have especially devastating effects on skin health. Pollution’s aging effects include premature wrinkles and unsightly pigment spots. Sounds pretty scary, right?
So, in the face of this environmental onslaught, effective protection and ongoing skin care are more important than ever. Luckily, our understanding of biomimetic science allowed us to create natural, potent, daily skin protection.
The biomimetic polymer in ageLOC Tru Face® Essence Ultra Uplifting Cream is a special blend of oligosaccharides (say that three times fast!). It sounds fancy, but an oligosaccharide is just a string of simple sugar molecules. In this case, they’re obtained from the gums of Kappaphycus alvarezii (tropical red algae) and Caesalpinia spinosa (a thorny shrub native to Peru called tara). And it’s that blend that makes the uniquely beneficial protective film in the Uplifting Cream possible.
Terms like biomimetic and polymer may still sound a little intimidating, especially when talking about skin care. Don’t worry; we’ll break it down to just what’s important.
WHAT IS A POLYMER?
A polymer is any substance made up of very large molecules of simpler chemical units called monomers. Just like tiles on a floor, multiple monomers may join to create a polymer (mono- means one, poly- means many). And while we don’t talk about them often, polymers are actually all around us. For example, polymers make up many of the materials in living organisms, including proteins, cellulose, and nucleic acids.
WHAT IS A BIOMIMETIC POLYMER?
Now that you’re familiar with the basics of polymers, let’s take it a step further and focus on biomimetic polymers—particularly, why they matter in skin care. Biomimetics is exactly what it sounds like. It uses science to mimic a biological process or function. So, in skin care, certain biomimetic polymers mimic the structure of the skin’s own protective layer. In ageLOC Tru Face Essence Ultra Uplifting Cream, the combination of the red algae and tara creates a biomimetic polymer, which acts as an invisible mesh that protects your skin.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF BIOMIMETIC POLYMERS?
Armed with a working knowledge of biomimetic polymers, let’s take a quick look at how they can improve your everyday skin care.
The breathable biomimetic polymer film helps:
• protect skin against:
• free radicals
• environmental stressors
• calm and soothe the skin
• diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles
That’s already a powerhouse combo, but here’s where the real magic of the biomimetic polymer lies—with ageLOC Tru Face Essence Ultra Uplifting Cream, it only takes 30 seconds for the polymers to create that flexible, breathable “second skin.” In skin care that’s about as close to instant results as you’re going to get! This thin, comfortable barrier’s protective effect on the skin combats outside irritants and pollution and supports healthy looking skin throughout the day.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS BEYOND THE BIOMIMETIC POLYMER?
Now, you may be thinking ageLOC Tru Face Essence Ultra Uplifting Cream sounds like the new must-have for your daily regimen. But the benefits don’t end there—ageLOC Tru Face Essence Ultra Uplifting Cream is much more than just powerful pollution protection.
Just look at these other luxurious benefits:
• Replenishes skin with deep hydration and a healthy glow.
• Promotes skin elasticity for a more youthful appearance.
• Produces a lovely “melt-away” sensation as you apply, leaving a barely-there, dewy layer of hydration on the skin that’s light enough to wear under makeup.
• Complements and boosts the benefits of ageLOC Tru Face Essence Ultra while adding rich hydration and nourishment to the skin.
As Aristotle once wrote, “Nature always strives after what is better.” While nature may be striving for better, the remarkable science of biomimetic polymers is striving for the best. And polymer-enhanced ageLOC Tru Face Essence Ultra Uplifting Cream is among the most promising new protective products science and skin care have to offer.
