The Effect On The Cellular Level – Vigorous Herbs
Through special manufacturing processes, their active ingredients from nature and plants, their balanced combination, and the exact dosage, they are able to penetrate the natural skin barrier and unfold their effect on the cellular level (stratum basale). With numerous skin-identical formulations (lipids, proteins, enzymes, etc.) they can trigger a cascade of physiological events, which on a natural level lead to normalization and strengthening of the skin’s own functions. The mixture of natural active ingredient groups (SPS = secondary plant substances) and medicinal active ingredients (retinoids, vitamins, AHAs, salicylic acid, antimicrobial substances, kojic acid, etc.) guarantee a significant, qualitative and optical skin improvement, as well as rapid treatment success for problem skin.
Vigorous Herbs introduce plant-based supplement: Fountain of Youth
In order to achieve the best treatment results – without unpleasant side effects – a skin-specific, professional and consistent use of cosmeceuticals is indicated after professional skin analysis. In terms of the dosage of their medical active ingredients, some products are on the verge of prescription-only pharmaceuticals and are generally only used for a limited period of time. The long-term care must be individually structured, matched to cosmeceuticals, and contribute to stabilizing the success of the treatment.
Cosmeceuticals are characterized by a comprehensive effect. They are able to repair existing damage, alleviate or eliminate skin problems, delay the aging of the skin and they have a complex, protective, and preventive effect.
Cosmeceuticals have become an indispensable part of modern cosmetics and plastic-aesthetic medicine. In connection with invasive and semi-invasive methods, they enable optimal skin-specific pre- and aftercare.
The role of vitamins as antioxidants,
especially as a radical scavenger, has been proven by numerous studies, especially after UV exposure. Free radicals contribute to light aging and thus, through mutation of the chromosomes, to light-induced skin cancer. Vitamins A, C, and E prevent chromosome breaks by scavenging free radicals. We know that a sunny day can use up all of the vitamin C content of the skin. The intake of vitamin C is therefore recommended in sunny times of the year.
Once applied, it has been shown to reduce the number of sunburn cells and also reduce the minimal erythema dose.
Studies on humans have been able to convincingly demonstrate that topically applied antioxidants increase the threshold dose for pigment formation, prevent the severity of UVA-induced photo-dermatoses and photo-aging and also have a healing effect on various skin diseases.
Wrinkles, deposits, dry skin, and flaky scalp can all indicate a lack of vitamin A.
Vitamin A derivatives develop effects epidermally and in the deeper dermis. Retinoids regulate the growth and differentiation of epithelial cells. They inhibit tumor growth, reduce the growth of malignant cells, reduce inflammation and stimulate the immune system. Retinol reduces the keratin content of the keratinocytes, reduces the cohesion in the stratum corneum and leads to an increase in Langerhans cells in the dermis.
Vitamin A supports the structure and overall functionality of the skin. It increases the resistance to infections, promotes healing, and counteracts the keratinization of the skin. Above all, vitamin A has a strong repairing and healing effect. At the same time, vitamin A stimulates the endothelia (vascular cells), which explains the tightening and better blood circulation in the skin.
Retinol is the primary molecule and the alcoholic form of vitamin A. Retinol is a very active form of the A vitamin, but it is very difficult to make retinol products and stabilize retinol.
Proof of the extensive effect of vitamin A has been proven by numerous studies.
is another antioxidant, it serves to protect the cells. The most active in the free D-tocopherol, it reduces the sunburn cells, inflammation, and the formation of wrinkles. Vitamin E enhances the effect of retinol.
Mitochondria – the cells within cells (ATP)
The human body consists of around 60,000 billion cells. In these cells, build-up and regeneration processes take place continuously, which require vast amounts of energy. This life energy, called ATP, is produced in tiny, independently functioning cells in the cell, the mitochondria. To do this, with the help of the oxygen they breathe, they burn plant and animal foodstuffs to form CO 2 and water. Healthy mitochondria produce 1.5 quintals of ATP every day, biological energy that is immediately transported to the inside of the cell and used up.
If the oxygen required for combustion is not completely converted into CO 2 and water, aggressive oxygen radicals can be released. It has been known for some time that mitochondria contain their own DNA material, which is much more susceptible to damage from free radicals than the DNA of our cells. The mitochondria also play a major role in programmed cell death (apoptosis), which helps destroy damaged cells before they become cancerous. If the DNA of mitochondria is damaged or changed, they pass this on to other cells with each new cell division.
If the mitochondria also accumulate damage to their genetic material over the years, they are no longer able to produce enough energy to ensure optimal function of the cells: This leads to cell death and aging in the long term.
