Key Ingredients and Benefits

BIOMIMIC™ Ultra Hydrator Advanced is next-level skin science. We used a proprietary combination of active ingredients for skin softening, plumping, and hydrating.


BIOMIMIC™ Ultra Hydrator Advanced is packed with the below key ingredients:

Hyaluronic Acid Skin Benefit

1.

WHY DID WE USE IT:

Hyaluronic acid is a glycosaminoglycan that is present in the skin. It exists in many connective tissues in your body, however more than 50% of its total amount is found in the skin. This molecule can absorb 1000 times its weight in water (1,2). 


Its large molecular size makes skin penetration difficult but there is a catch in that it can do its job without entering into deeper layers. The molecule settles on your skin between the cells of the epidermis and sweeps water from anywhere it can.

2.

Hyaluronic acid also redistributes water by pulling it out of deeper layers of skin. The transfer of hydration from the dermis to the epidermis keeps the skin supple and prevents dryness (2).

  • SKIN BENEFITS:

  • Visibly plumps skin
  • Smooths the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles—including fine lines around the eyes

Vitamin B3 Skin Benefit

1.

WHY DID WE USE IT:

Vitamin B3, also known as niacinamide, stabilizes the epidermis and its water-resistant barrier. Vitamin B3 forms keratin proteins, which are an important part of the extracellular matrix (4). This stabilizes epidermal structure and prevents transdermal water loss. High amounts are found in walnuts.

  • SKIN BENEFIT:

  • Helps visibly minimize enlarged pores
  • Improves uneven skin tone
  • Soften's fine lines and wrinkles
  • Decreases dullness
  • Helps strengthen a weakened surface

Vitamin B5 Skin Benefit

1.

WHY DID WE USE IT:

Vitamin B5 is a derivative of pantothenic acid and helps in the formation of collagen in the skin. High concentrations are found in Shiitake Mushrooms.

2.

Vitamin B5 boosts the keratinocyte growth factor and strengthens the lipid layer (3).

  • SKIN BENEFITS:

  • Moisturizing effect on the skin
  • Smooths and softens the skin for a supple, wrinkle-free appearance
  • Helps prevent transdermal water loss

Peptide Complex Skin Benefit

1.

WHY DID WE USE IT:

The peptide complex is a collection of amino acid chains that boost collagen synthesis in the skin. The continuous proliferation of keratinocytes also clears off dead skin and keeps the epidermis healthy. The supple and new epidermis feels softer and more even.

  • SKIN BENEFITS:

  • Helps reduce fine lines for a smoother, fresher look 
  • Enhances the stability of other antioxidants 

How to use:

BIOMIMIC™ Ultra Hydrator Advanced can be applied in both the AM & PM to quench the skin’s thirst with potent ingredients sourced from nature.


Dispense 2-3 drops into the palm of your hand and then apply to your face.


Dispense 2-3 drops if you will also be applying to your neck and chest.

The Science of Biomimicry

Hyaluronic acid is a compound nature has placed in the skin for water collection. BIOMIMIC™ Ultra Hydrator Advanced follows increases hyaluronic acid to boost moisture. Other ingredients trigger reactions that your body initiates to save your skin from wrinkling and dryness.


All of these ingredients have an extrinsic function and collectively play a role of helping to maintain the mechanism responsible for firming and hydration. 

Why Does Your Skin Become Dry?

Dry skin is more than just a poor skincare habit, it is embedded in your genes. Your skin is capable of locking moisture in its layers, dryness is a symptom of compromise in that ability.

Intrinsic Mechanism Of Skin Hydration

In the stratum corneum, the superficial layer of the epidermis, a lipid barrier is present.


Corneocytes, generated by keratinocytes in basal layers of the epidermis form this barrier. These cells are glued together by lamellar bodies which act like bandages. Lamellar bodies are made of lipids and formulate a water-proof seal on the skin.

Effects on Genetic Expression

The continuous proliferation of keratinocytes is imperative for barrier function and supple skin. Our genetic code is responsible for the cell cycle of keratinocytes to the formation of lipids in lamellar bodies.


Research has fund that the SSP3 gene involved in cell cycle maintenance plays a role in the differentiation of keratinocytes (1). The down-regulation of this gene decreases corneocyte formation and barrier function.


The production of lipids such as ceramides present in lamellar bodies also needs enzymatic reactions controlled by genetic expression. Therefore, disparities in the respective gene pool translate into structural abnormalities of barrier and excessive water loss.


Environmental factors like UV-radiations and sun exposure also damage the lipid barrier and decrease water retention. Moreover, they tend to influence genetic dictation. The external stimulus causes mutations and steers gene impression towards unproductive outcomes.
