Key Ingredients, And Why They Work
We know reading about ingredients can be tedious, but we want everyone to understand why Nuvosa products are so effective, and why they’re completely different from anything you’ve tried before. Our ingredient list isn’t an array of confusing chemicals that only scientists can pronounce correctly. We’ve eliminated all of those harsh additives and replaced them with natural alternatives that simply work better, and are much safer for your skin.
The only non-organic ingredients we include are the integral elements that we hand select to make our products the most effective on the market.
DMAE – This ingredient has burst on the skincare scene in large part because of Dr. Perricone’s #1 New York Times Best Seller, The Wrinkle Cure. Dr. Perricone has done some amazing research and testing to bring DMAE and its benefits to the forefront.
Unfortunately there’s a flaw…
No matter how you spin it, DMAE will not create amazing results on its own. The effectiveness is dependent on the ingredients and formula its paired with. Luckily, Nuvosa realizes the true potential of DMAE, and has worked hard to pinpoint the exact mixture needed.
We’ve taken Dr. Perricone’s research, and used it to unearth the perfect blend between DMAE, secondary ingredients, and our revolutionary skin breakthrough methods that combine to create an unmistakable impact.
Hyaluronic Acid – Almost every high end anti-aging product is currently using this ingredient. So why is ours groundbreaking? Deep Wrinkle Remedy utilizes our advanced form of hyaluronic acid with concentration levels 100 times more potent than competing products.
Hyaluronic acid sounds scary, but it’s wonderful for skin and the most effective form of moisturizing on the market today. Our highly concentrated version is an exciting breakthrough, and crucial to the success of DMAE and other ingredients that need that moisture to work effectively. Without a robust moisture delivery system, there’s no way for your skin to hold and absorb the other ingredients. This is a major reason why most people see positive effects from our products when so many others have failed.
Coenzyme Q10 – As we age, skin cell production slows down causing skin to grow thinner. The layer of fat cells beneath the skin starts to atrophy, along with collagen and elastin, the network of fibers that support skin. This causes skin to lose firmness, elasticity, and ultimately leads to wrinkled, sagging skin.
Q10 is produced naturally by your skin, but levels decrease as we age, as well as its ability to fight free radicals, one of the primary causes of aging.
Coenzyme Q10 speeds up the production of new skin cells, improves the collagen/elastin structural framework, slows down the thinning of skin, and improves the skins ability to retain moisture. You can see why we worked hard to develop a highly effective form of this enzyme to put into our products.
Alpha Lipoic Acid – Your first line of defense against free radicals. Known as the “universal antioxidant” it eliminates free radicals in the fatty and watery parts of the cells. It also extends the lifespan of Vitamin C, Coenzyme Q10, and renews Vitamin E.
Damaged collagen is the underlying cause of most wrinkles and scars. Alpha lipoic acid helps to eliminate this damaged collagen, resulting in much smoother, younger looking skin.
Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide) – Studies have shown that Vitamin B3 increases synthesis of collagen and lipids, as well as reducing the transfer of melanosomes and decreasing inflammation. Increases the rate of your skin exfoliation and improves moisture barrier repair. Vitamin B3 is also used to treat acne making this a great ingredient for every skin age.
Pro-Vitamin B5 (dl-Panthenol) – A great partner with hyaluronic acid in the process of slowing skin dryness and increasing moisture retention capability in your skin. Along with Vitamin B3, it is a great anti-inflammatory and improves skin regeneration.
Vitamin C Ester (Ester C) – This is actually different from normal Vitamin C. It goes into the protective outer layer where Vitamin C can’t get to. Ester C is considered an antioxidant, and since it effects the protective outer layer, it’s great at repairing damage like inflammation, irritation, and sunburns.
Vitamin A (Retinyl Palmitate) – Vitamin A in the form of retinyl palmitate is best known for it’s anti-wrinkle effect. It helps control the formation of fine lines and without it, your skin will suffer. We make sure to use the correct concentration in our formulas as too much can cause skin irritation.
Pro-Vitamin A (Beta Carotene) – We love to include this in our products because studies suggest it shields the skin from harmful UVA rays. We always suggest using sunscreen you know you’ll be out in the sun, but this has shown to be a great backup solution to protect against skin damage, premature aging, and possibly even skin cancer with daily use.
Vitamin E (Tocopherol) – Because of its antioxidant benefits, Vitamin E is needed to fight ultra-violet rays, pollution, and other skin cell damaging free radicals. We believe strongly in eliminating these free radicals which is why include the complete array of ingredients to do it. Vitamin E has also been shown to treat and prevent sunburns and scarring.
Life Changing Organics
Organic Aloe Vera Extract- Aloe vera has been studied extensively and it’s been shown to provide an exciting variety of skin benefits. It moisturizes dry skin, treats acne and blemishes, improves skin firmness, lessens stretch marks, and soothes skin for less inflammation. This is easily one of our customers favorite organic ingredients.
Organic Bilberry Extract- You’re going to LOVE this ingredient. Bilberry contains resveratrol and quercetin which are both great anti-aging agents on their own, so let’s look at what they do together.
Bilberry has been used to treat skin disorders such as varicose veins because it improves blood flow. This can help to increase the vitality of skin, but it’s important for another reason. It contains flavonoids which facilitate blood flow in the tiny vessels surrounding the eyes. In fact, during WWII, pilots would eat bilberry jam to improve their night vision. We aren’t sure we can improve your night vision, but we think you’ll be overjoyed with the improvements you’ll see around your eyes.
Organic Sugar Cane & Sugar Maple Extract- Sugar may be bad for your diet, but it’s fantastic for your skin. Sugar contains glycolic acid, an alpha-hydroxy acid that is crucial to healthy skin because of its ability to moisturize and protect your skin from toxins. Sugar also acts as a natural exfoliater, keeps pores clear, helps eliminate blemishes, and restores balance to skin oils.
Organic Orange Extract – Real organic orange extract can prevent several skin problems. It can give you clearer skin by reducing blemishes, dark spots, and age spots. It provides anti-wrinkle treatment through vitamin E, a vitamin full of antioxidants working to prevent wrinkles and lines. It’s also a anti-acne treatment because of its gentle astringent property. Gentle enough to reduce itching and irritation while clearing up the acne.
Organic Lemon Extract – We use lemon as a strong exfoliant to help shed the dead skin cells during the anti-aging process. Much like the orange extract, lemon is also full of Vitamin C, which adds a healthy glow to skin and improves its overall health.
Organic Cranberry Extract – Cranberry extract can help restore radiance to any skin type. It’s high in vitamin A and phospholipids, and it’s also a strong anti-bacterial. The anti-bacterial component makes it a significant pore cleanser.
Dr. Hyla Cass, author of 8 Weeks to Vibrant Health, confirms cranberry oil’s powerful properties: “Cranberry oil is noted for its unique natural balance of omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 fatty acids, as well as its high content of natural antioxidants. The oil is rich in natural vitamin E, a potent antioxidant that helps preserve its freshness. Cranberry oil is absorbed easily through the skin, acts as a superb moisturizer, and helps to relieve itchy, scaly, irritated skin”.
REMEMBER – Don’t be fooled by synthetic alternatives and fragrances that are meant to mimic the properties of our organic ingredients. These high quality ingredients aren’t cheap, but we refuse to ignore effectiveness and skin health for profit margins.
