Skin hydration largely depends on the ability of the surface layers of the skin to absorb moisture and keep it in its deep layers. The study of the genetic characteristics of special proteins, called aquaporins, which deliver moisture to the deeper layers of the skin, allows us to assess the capability of the skin to retain moisture, the sensitivity to changes in pH, as well as its resistance to the damaging UV effects. Aquaporin protein is encoded in the AQP3 gene. This gene is crucial in retaining skin moisture, as described in the scientific study of Dr. Draelos from Duke University School of Medicine and his coauthors in 2002.
The cream contains the innovative serum BIOMARINE MOLECULAR COMPLEX, which is responsible for long-lasting hydration. Its unique formula is based on exopolysaccharides, which are produced by some species of marine bacteria to protect them from drying out at low tide. Its power exceeds the moisturizing effect of hyaluronic acid, which is most frequently used in cosmetics. The cream also contains hyaluronic acid, urea, glycerine, almond butter and other important ingredients. The continuous application of the cream for just a couple of weeks will increase “the water reserve” of your skin and will contribute to the continual activation of aquaporins in your skin.
The experts at Younom’s laboratory have also developed a special dietary supplement ELASTICITY, which contains astaxanthin, one of the most powerful antioxidants that exists in nature, a complex of B vitamins, and collagen hydrolysate, which ensure the normal function of your body’s systems that support and stimulate the hydration of your skin.
