emerginC

GLOSSARY OF KEY INGREDIENTS

emerginC uses pharmaceutical-grade ingredients and sources naturally wherever possible

alpha hydroxy acids: Alpha-hydroxy acids are a group of natural fruit (or synthetic) acids such as glycolic acid (from sugar cane; keratolytic effect), lactic acid (from milk, fruit; smoothes and hydrates), citric acid, tartaric acid and malic acid (helps with elasticity), etc. that work to exfoliate surface layers of skin, which can help the skin better absorb creams and serums that are applied afterward as well as diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Strength varies in percentage and is greatly influenced by the pH level. The lower the pH level, the more acidic. Aipha-hydroxy acids, especially citric acid, may also help bring hydration and increase micro-circulation to the skin. At emerginC we generally incorporate fruit acids in moderate strengths as we believe that longer-term over-use of alpha-hydroxy acids may make the skin more vulnerable to UV damage and possibly pigmentation problems. When using alpha-hydroxy acids, as always, we recommend the use of emerginC sun 20 with zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, benzophenone, and octylmethoxycinnamate. Products: emerginC cleanser, emerginC triple-threat cream and peel. emerginC uses only natural fruit acids.

alpha-lipoic acid: Also known as thioctic acid. Called the “master” or “universal” anti­oxidant because it is the only anti-oxidant that is both lipid and water-soluble (works both inside and outside the cell) and can help “recycle” both lipid and water-soluble vitamins and anti-oxidants, specifically vitamins C and E and coenzyme QlO, extending their ability to scavenge free-radicals. One of the most potent anti-oxidants (can scavenge a large amount of hydroxyl or “free” radicals). Improves sugar metabolism and energy production as it is a small enough molecule to penetrate the mitochondria of the cell, where energy is produced. Works synergistically with other anti-oxidants and vitamins to enhance their benefit. Helps promote production of glutathione, one of the most important anti-oxidants that the body produces (glutatluione helps maintain cellular integrity). Alpha-lipoic acid is produced naturally in the body, but only in tiny amounts; and alpha-lipoic can be ingested in foods such as liver, yeast, red meat and certain green vegetables (such as spinach), but also only in tiny amounts. Products: emerginC hyper­vitalizer face and eye creams, emerginC complexion-perfection.

anti-oxidants: Anti-oxidants help scavenge and “neutralize” free radicals (OH hydroxyl radicals). Free radicals are atoms or molecules that are missing a pair of electrons, making them unstable. Because of this instability, free radicals can damage healthy cells: cross linking of collagen can occur (leading to wrinkles) and oxidation can harm lipids and proteins essential for healthy skin. Therefore, free radicals are a major cause of aging skin and anti-oxidants a major weapon against free radicals. Free radicals can also cause damaging cellular inflammation and anti-oxidants can diminish or eliminate this inflammation. All anti-oxidants have anti-inflammatory properties. Products: almost all emerginC products.

Arbutin: Arbutin is a natural, plant derived, highly-effective, stable skin whitening agent that works on the skin by transforming excessive melanin production into colorless substances as well as competing with certain enzymes that inhibit tyrosine oxidation by tyrosinase (a main cause of hyper-pigmentation). UV damage (primarily from the sun) is one of the main causes of hyper-pigmentation). Products: emerginC spot, emerginC lighten up under-eye circle fighter.

bearberry extract: A natural, stable, highly-effective plant-based skin lightener that helps retard excessive melanin production without irritation. Products: emerginC lighten-up under-eye circle fighter.

beta-hydroxy acid: A naturally-derived acid that with a strong keratolytic effect (removes dead skin cells). Excellent for acne, problem skin, for peeling, etc. Products:

emerginC triple-threat cream and peel.

ceramides:  Natural-derived plant extract, spongelike in form, that helps to maintain moisture levels in the epidermis. Products: emerginC earth.

coenzvme Q1O:  Coenzyme Q1O is a vitamin-like anti-oxidant, essential for cellular energy. It acts like the “spark” is all cellular activity and is an important defense against sun damage. Products: emerginC vitality eye and mask.

copper: Copper serves a number of key functions in the skin. It is essential in the production of elastin, as it stimulates enzymes (specifically, lysil oxidase) to help build new elastin. In the production of collagen, the stimulation of lysil oxidase is stimulated by copper (which helps to link collagen molecules to the building of collagen fibers). Copper also plays an integral role in the production of keratin in the epidermis, thereby helping to improve skin tone and texture. Products: emerginC earth.

green tea: Green tea contains polyphenols, a class of bioflavanoids, with high anti­oxidant properties (approx.200 times more effective anti-oxidant than vitamin E). Green tea is also an effective anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory agent, and may have other benefits for the skin. Products: emerginC vitamin C mask, multi-vitamin serum, sun 20, spot lightening gel, earth, lighten up under-eye circle fighter.

iron: Iron is important for the micro-circulation of the skin. In addition, it is essential in the bio-synthesis of collagen as it helps transform certain proteins into liquefied collagen. Products: emerginC earth.

kinetin: Kinetin is a plant-based, non-irritating growth factor extract (also known as furfuryladenine) that has shown to significantly reduce free-radical damage and photo-aging in cells as well as slow down aging of plant cells. In one demonstration, plant leaves coated with kinetin retain their fresh, vibrant color while uncoated leaves turn brown. While it is clear that kinetin has a potent anti-oxidant effect, it may also trigger other anti-aging mechanisms in the cell--but the latter theory is not conclusive. Products: emerginC hyper-vitalizer face and eye creams.

kojic acid: Kojic acid is a natural, effective lightener (derived from rice) that helps fade spots by retarding excessive melanin production. Products: emerginC spot, lighten-up under-eye circle fighter.

magnesium: Magnesium is essential in the bio-synthesis of collagen as it helps produce proteins that are later transformed into collagen. It is also necessary for normal cell metabolism as it plays a key role in ATP production. Products: emerginC earth.

manganese: Manganese is vital in the bio-synthesis of collagen as it helps activate key enzymes in the formation of collagen. Products: emerginC earth.

nanotope liposomes: Nanotope liposomes, a patented delivery system originally designed for pharmaceutical use, are ultra-small carriers--three to five times smaller than conventional liposome s--that can entrap lipid or water soluble ingredients to help them better penetrate the skin. Products: emerginC hyper-vitalizer face and eye creams and mask

retinol: Retinol is the most effective form of vitamin A without a prescription. Retinol has demonstrated to give similar benefits to retin-A but without the irritation (and at a slower pace). Retinol increases cellular turnover which evens out tone and texture and helps skin to function better. Retinol is better than other forms of vitamin A as the molecular structure is smaller.

sea buckthorn extract: Sea buckthorn extract contains a remarkably wide variety of highly concentrated, active ingredients. In certain countries, it has been used for burn and wound healing. Sea buckthorn extract contains vitamin C, flavonoids (with anti­oxidant and anti-microbial properties), tocopherols (vitamin E), carotinoids (which break down to vitamin A), and high concentrations of lipids (and tallow) similar to the skin’s own natural lipids. It is anti-inflammatory, hydrating energizing contains anti-oxidants and other phytonutrients which help benefit the skin. Products: emerginC complexion-perfection.

vitamin A: see retinol

vitamin B: Vitamin B is an effective anti-inflammatory. Products: emerginC H20+ and emerginC multi-vitamin.

vitamin C: Vitamin c, in stable, low pH, high-concentration, L-Ascorbic acid formulations, is key in fighting the aging process. Vitamin C (as L-Ascorbic acid) is a potent, water-soluble, anti-oxidant, a vital co-factor in the production of collagen and elastin, can reverse and help prevent photo-damage and help improve and prevent pigmentation problems. As an acid, it also helps improve tone and texture by removing dead skin cells and diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
