Inside Age Benefit™
It’s not how old you are but more about how old you feel - which is determined by your health, vitality and energy, all of which are reflected in your skin! With such a competitive anti-ageing market out there it is hard to decide which product is right for you in order to achieve that result - there are new products being launched onto the market on what seems like a daily basis, and it gets confusing! And skincare for menopausal to post-menopausal age groups is even more confusing!
Ageing is occurring in both the epidermis and dermis and reveals itself as deep wrinkles, loss of firmness, lack of radiance, uneven skin texture, dehydration and pigmentation flaws. It is due to time, hormones, as well as environmental aggressors.
The Age Benefit™ Integral Regenerating Range has been designed for skin that has damage to both the internal and external layers, with technology centred around 'Growth Factors' which have been found to have a profound effect on the health of the skin as it gets older. Gatineau worked with Dr Jean-Claude LeJoliff – a medical professor based at the University of Versailles where they created Age Benefit Techology which essentially works to normalise the acitvity of 2 key growth factors in the skin that contribute to skin ageing:
GEN-CONTROL – a form of Artichoke Extract. Artichoke is one of the oldest cultivated plants native to the Mediterranean. During medical studies it was found that it has an anti-inflammatory effect, controls skin photo-aging, and has a remarkable ability to regulate Growth Factor 'NF Kappa B'.
As well as this we use FIBRO-REPAIR from Hibiscus Extract which transmits positive messages to allow the regeneration process to be re-activated and to stimulate the synthesis of collagen and elastin fibres.
With added Calcilium (a combination of calcium and amino-acids) the epidermal and dermal junction is strengthened whilst cell renewal stimulated. Micro-circulation is boosted with Luminix to promote luminosity and target brown spots, and Hyaluronic Acid instantly hydrates and plumps out wrinkles. For added comfort and to counteract the lack of oil in the skin Gatineau have formulated the dry skin version with Shea butter and Sweet Almond Oil delivering maximum comfort and suppleness.
So, for those of you concerned about all signs of ageing, Age Benefit is the way to go. It will strengthen the skin, minimise lines & wrinkles, smooth the skin and improve skin radiance. Plus it helps enhance skin’s natural repair mechanisms and protect the skin whilst helping to enhance cellular energy. What are you waiting for - healthy revitalised skin is at your fingertips, no matter your age!
