Why it's special?
When cells age, they increase in size and reduce in number, resulting in fewer and weaker cells to cover the area. This decrease in cell quality and quantity causes the connective tissues to lose strength. Exposure to harsh elements and living conditions only escalate the loss, pronouncing wrinkles and age spots. Aged and weakened skin around the lower jaw and neck loses its natural propensity to remain taught (elasticity). Consequently, it lacks the normal recoil and starts to sag and droop.
NourishMax's Décolletage & Neck Firming Cream uses two incredible peptides to improve and reinforce the elasticity of the skin in an effort to strengthen the skin's natural ability to remain taut and appear healthy.
The first peptide, called Acetyl Dipeptide-13 Diphenylglycine, decreases elastosis activity while boosting type 1 collagen synthesis. Type 1 collagen imparts tensile strength and the ability to resist stretching as the elastic fibers are repaired and quantified.
The second important Peptide redensifies and restructures the adhesion between the epidermal dermal layers of cells. This area is known as the dermo epidermal junction (DEJ). The DEJ is a basement membrane that separates the skin cells in the epidermis from the extracellular matrix which lies below in the dermis layer.
Usually, this layer is degraded with age and causes a loss of contact between the dermal and epidermal layers; as a result the skin loses elasticity and sags.
We use a peptide called Hexapeptide-10 to increase laminin-5, α6-integrin, and hemidesmosomes. These components are the essential building blocks and proteins that comprise the DEJ membrane, and they play an integral role in good skin balance, nutrient distribution, and cellular health.
The proliferation of these components helps strengthen the junction and maintain elasticity. NourishMax's Décolletage & Neck Firming Cream is just the formula needed to bring back the tight, smooth, and elegant characteristics of a youthful neck and jawline.
