Phase 1 moisturising cream is designed for younger skin – 18 to 30. At this time in our life our complexions have generally not begun to manifest any significant evidence of ageing. Eventually, however, these signs will begin to appear and so it makes perfect sense to begin to protect the skin now to delay the onset of skin ageing as much as possible. After all it prevention is always better than cure!
Sensora Youth Protect Moisturising cream features Carnosine
Carnosine (sometimes referred to as L-Carnosine) is a naturally occurring combination of two amino acids (alanine and histidine). Primarily it functions as an anti-oxidant by neutralizing and disarming the free radicals responsible for attacking the DNA in our cells (free radical activity is one of the more significant activities which causing premature skin ageing).
More remarkably, however, research has shown that Carnosine actually extends the life of our skin cells. Cells generally have the ability to reproduce themselves 52 times before dying. However, it appears that Carnosine can extend this limit from 52 to 60 making Carnosine a real anti-ageing factor.
It’s not just skin cells that benefit from this extension. Fibroblasts are the precursor cells responsible for the formation of collagen and elastin (the proteins that combine to give our skin structure, support, and elasticity). By extending the life of our fibroblasts we can increase the amount of these vital components of our skin and delay the onset of lines and wrinkles.
Olay has incorporated Carnosine in their popular Regenerist cream so if it’s good enough for Olay…… The issue with the Olay product is that it contains quite a few ingredients that you might prefer to avoid including lots of silicones and just about every paraben. Our version is paraben free and silicone free.
