How to use
The skin around the eyes is extremely delicate.
Spread the serum gently without pulling or rubbing hard on the skin.
- Use a spatula to take some serum, about the size of a grain of rice per eye, and apply it over 6 locations around the eye.
- Gently lift the temple to stretch the wrinkles.
- Using the fingers of your other hand, gently spread the serum in the direction of the arrow.
- Spread the serum over an area slightly larger than the area around the outer corner of the eye where wrinkles form easily.
- Using the pad of the ring finger, gently pat the serum onto the skin to apply it.
Collagen is polymerized just like extremely-fine mesh. It maintains adherence to the skin in accordance with the shape of the face and throughout facial expression movement, and firms and lifts the skin. It also prevents moisture loss while protecting the skin against dry conditions and external irritations.
The fine meshwork of the collagen covers the skin to lock in ingredients contained in the serum and promotes penetration into the skin.
Micro-collagen is a hydrolyzed giant protein assembly of collagen broken down to tripeptide components (the adjoining of three amino acids), and has an ideal molecular weight for the greatest skin penetration. It penetrates skin to stimulate fibroblast proliferation to induce collagen production, resulting in resilient, soft skin.
Elastin derived from yellowtail works together with collagen in the skin’s inner layer, the dermis, to keep skin resilient and soft. It contains plenty of elastin-specific amino acids, desmosine and isodesmosine, to produce effective results.
*There are numerous ingredients labeled as elastin that actually do not contain these elastin-specific amino acids.
Placenta extract, obtained from the ovarian membrane of salmons native to eastern Hokkaido, contains more amino acids than other types of placenta, and is significantly effective in cell activation in the skin. Amino acids, the main component of NMF (natural moisturizing factor) found in the corneocyte, enhance the skin’s barrier function and retain moisture in the skin. Its collagen production-promoting action makes the skin resilient and improves skin texture.
Yeast extract is a natural extract derived from baker’s yeast. This specialty extract is processed by hydrolysis to strengthen “cell activation action,” which facilitates cell metabolism to prevent ageing. It restores and recovers damaged skin, promoting cell metabolism to revitalize and rejuvenate cells.
Vitamin P derivative
Vitamin P derivative is obtained by the condensation of Vitamin P and glucose derived from starch. It is found in large quantities in citrus peel. The derivative strengthens capillaries (promotes blood circulation) and boosts skin turnover while suppressing the action of the enzymes that degrade hyaluronic acid, the element that binds cells together.
