- THE SCIENCE
BIOMIMIC™ Ultra Hydrator Advanced is next-level skin science. We used a proprietary combination of active ingredients for skin softening, plumping and hydration.
Hyaluronic acid is a glycosaminoglycan (GAGs) that is present in the skin that help attract water. This amazing molecule can absorb 1000 times its weight in water (1,2). In fact, more than 50 percent of the hyaluronic acid in your body is found in the skin.
Hyaluronic acid is a large molecule which can make it difficult to penetrate the skin. However, within BIOMIMIC formulations Hyaluronic Acid has been designed to sit within the cells of the epidermis providing optimum ability to absorb water from both the upper and lower dermal layers plumping the skins appearance.
Hyaluronic acid’s ability to redistribute water by pulling it from deeper layers of skin transferring hydration from the dermis to the epidermis, keeps the skin supple, while preventing dryness (2).
- Visibly plumps skin
Softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles—including fine lines around the eyes
Vitamin B3 is also known as niacinamide, its role is to help stabilise the epidermis and to strengthen the skin’s barrier. Vitamin B3 is used to form keratin proteins which are an important part of the extracellular matrix (4). This stabilises the epidermal structure and prevents transdermal water loss. High amounts of Vitamin B3 are found naturally in walnuts.
- Decreases dullness
Improves uneven skin tone
Softens fine lines and wrinkles
Helps visibly minimise enlarged pores
Helps strengthen a weakened surface
High amounts of Vitamin B3 are found naturally in walnuts.
Vitamin B5 is a derivative of pantothenic acid and helps in the formation of collagen in the skin
Vitamin B5 is included to help boost keratinocyte growth factors which are the main type of cell found in the epidermis (3).
- Moisturising effect on the skin
Helps prevent transdermal water loss
Smooths and softens the skin for a supple, wrinkle-free appearance
High concentrations are found naturally in Shiitake Mushrooms
Our peptide complex is a collection of amino acid chains that help boost collagen production in the skin. Boosting collagen production levels in turn increases collagen turnover which helps clear off dead skin and keeps the epidermis healthy. The supple and new epidermis feels softer and more even.
- Enhances the stability of other antioxidants
Helps reduce fine lines for a smoother, fresher look
BIOMIMIC™ Ultra Hydrator Advanced can be applied in both the AM & PM to quench the skin’s thirst with potent ingredients sourced from nature.
The science of
Hyaluronic acid is a compound nature has placed in the skin to allow for water collection and moisture retention.
BIOMIMIC™ Ultra Hydrator Advanced increases the hyaluronic acid content in your skin to further boost moisture. Other ingredients in our formulation help trigger reactions that reduce skin aging traits such as wrinkling and dryness.
All of these ingredients have an extrinsic function and collectively play a role of helping to maintain the mechanisms responsible for skin firming and hydration.
Why does your skin become dry?
Most skin aging concerns including dry skin, are generally caused by a compromised skin barrier (referred to as the lipid barrier). This barrier contains oils and other tissue fluids that help shield the skin against the outside. When you damage this skin behaves in unusual ways, becoming overly dry, overly oily, overly sensitive, overly irritated.
By incorporating a Hyaluronic acid serum, you can readjust this barrier by helping the skin absorb water to strengthen the barrier. Hyaluronic acid is an incredible molecule, it can absorb 1000x its weight in water.
Intrinsic mechanism of skin hydration
The superficial layer of the epidermis is called the stratum corneum. This is what forms your skin lipid barrier. This barrier contains a type of skin cell called Corneocytes which create a tight mesh that helps create a water-proof seal on the skin.
Effects on genetic expression
We now know that our genetic code is responsible for cellular cycles. Continuous cellular turnover is imperative for maintaining the healthy barrier functions of our skin. Genetic variations can affect the cellular turnover functions which can lead to excessive water loss and dehydration.
Your genetics are not the only answer for skin dehydration, environmental factors such as UV-radiation and sun exposure have also been shown to damage the skins lipid barrier which decreases water retention.
