QUINTESSENCE SKIN SCIENCE CLARIFYING UNDER-EYE SERUM 60 Capsules Is a specialized nighttime clarifying product for diminishing the appearance of dark, under-eye circles, giving this area an overall brighter, healthier looking appearance. This unique formulation gently delivers concentrated levels of Retinol, the purest form of Vitamin A, as well as Vitamin K1 to decrease the appearance of pigmentation, improve skin texture and smooth fine lines and wrinkles under the delicate eye area. The patented* time release delivery system also contains Vitamins C and E as well as Green Tea Extract to help fight free-radical damage and keep skin looking vibrant.
RESULTS BACKED BY SCIENCE:
Suborbital Hyperpigmentation (dark circles under the eyes) is a widespread cosmetic problem. Until very recently no cosmetic treatments could satisfactorily address this problem. The products on the market were either a type of high-coverage make-up or merely moisturizers with marketing claims.
As with many cosmetic skin conditions related to aging, a combination of factors lead to the final appearance of unsightly dark areas under the eyes:
Heredity - many individuals develop dark circles at a very young age.
Ethnicity - subjects of certain national origins tend to have increased tendency to suborbital hyperpigmentation.
Thin Skin - some individuals have thinner skin than others, which allows pigmentation to more readily show through the delicate suborbital region.
Two additional factors interplay to increase this darkness over time, photoaging and gravity. As the skin stretches down from the eyelid area due to gravity, the additional thinness caused by the stretching allows any pigment in the under-eye area to become more visible. Additionally, exposure to ultraviolet rays over time increase the melanin in this area contributing to the dark appearance. UVA induced actinic damage, manifested as telangiectasia (broken and dead-end blood vessels) in the area, combine with the other factors, to produce what is perceived as dark circles.
However, recent clinical studies conducted by renowned Dermatologist, Dr. Melvin Elson, M.D., have demonstrated that treatment with stabilized microencapsulated Retinol (Vitamin A) and Phytonadione (Vitamin K1) can effectively reduce the appearance of under-eye dark circles.
Quintessence Skin Science Clarifying Under-Eye Serum utilizes the advanced delivery system technologies, Microsponge“ and Vegi-Caps, to deliver a high concentration of Vitamin K1 along with Retinol (Vit. A), Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Green Tea Extract to effectively reduce the appearance of dark circles in the under-eye area, while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the Crows Feet area.
What are MicroSponges? They are biologically inert, microscopic polymer particles (microspheres) that absorb, trap or bind to specific cosmetic ingredients, providing for a uniform and controlled sustained release of these ingredients. The technology is based on cross-linked polymers that form microscopic orange-like spheres less than one-thousandth of an inch in diameter.
The MICROSPONGE system allows for the stability and controlled release of the normally unstable Retinol & Vitamin K.
This is a new and unique type of softgel capsule and different in composition from other softgel capsules, which are generally made from animal derived material. Vegi-Caps are a patented closed delivery system consisting of a silicone sheath and dissolvable vegetable derived capsule, which hermetically seals the Retinol/Vitamin K serum from exposure to air until the moment of use.
The combination of these two scientifically advanced delivery systems allows the Quintessence Skin Science Retinol / Vit. K Clarifying Under-Eye Serum to achieve maximum results, while reducing the possibility of irritation, and guarantees the product is always fresh with each application.
