Gold Vitamin C X3 Serum
In vivo, the conjugated ascorbic acid at the percent we are using in the formula provides an antioxidant capacity comparable to a 50% ascorbic acid solution. And, because it’s 100% stable- it retains this efficacy after the product has been opened. Formulas containing regular ascorbic acid will see about 80-90% decrease in ascorbic acid content after just 6 days. So, if you have a 15% vitamin C serum, it only retains about 2% of its ascorbic acid content after a week. This content continues to decrease over time. This is not the case with the conjugated ascorbic acid. So, not only do we get a huge increase in efficacy, but the product retains its efficacy over time. Additionally, with free ascorbic acid, only about 30% of whatever we apply topically will penetrate the skin in its effective state. With the conjugation system, 100% of the ascorbic acid penetrates. So, with a 15% vitamin C serum, on the very first day that you use it (before it’s oxidized by 90% in one week), you’re only getting about 4.5% ascorbic acid that actually penetrates the skin in its active form. With the conjugated ascorbic acid, 100% of the applied ascorbic acid content will be bioavailable to the skin.
Ascorbic Acid, Gold, Glutathione;– Ascorbic acid complex is designed to keep ascorbic acid 100% stable over time and increase the penetration of vitamin C into the skin. By conjugating ascorbic acid to gold, its bioavailability is increased drastically, and glutathione (a vitamin C precursor) helps to replenish ascorbic acid as it’s broken down.

Line Filler Rapid Response (10ml)
This filler is a non-invasive alternative to surgery and wrinkle fillers such as Restylane. The Hyaluronic Acid in this filler penetrates into the varying depth of the skin folds and trap water in the fine lines and wrinkles. Clinical test results show a decrease of –7.5%, in forehead expression wrinkles after one hour and 12% after 6 hours.
The Filling Spheres are composed of a mixture of high and low molecular weight hyaluronic acids, perfectly accepted by skin tissue. When they are applied, they easily lodge in skin tissue depressions (wrinkles) where they progressively but rapidly rehydrate by taking up water that evaporates from the skin. This physical action leads to a volume change of Hyaluronic Filling Spheres in the epidermis that almost immediately smoothes deep wrinkles such as expression wrinkles, at the same time increasing the long-term hydration of the upper layers of the epidermis.

This mild but effective dosage can be used during the day and night. Recommended using sunscreen for daytime use.
Vitamin E (Tocopherol) – an antioxidant that protects and repairs your skin. The atoms that comprise your body try to maintain an even number of electrons – that’s what makes them stable. If an atom has an uneven number of electrons, it will steal an electron from another atom to become stable. When your skin takes a beating from harmful effects like UV rays from the sun your body can produce free radicals. Free radicals are atoms with an uneven number of electrons, and when they form inside your body, they steal electrons from healthy cells like the one that make up your skin. This causes damaging chain reaction, and that is where antioxidants like the vitamin E come in. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals and prevent cellular damage from occurring. Vitamin E is one of the most powerful antioxidants, but your body cannot produce it, which means you have to make sure you are getting enough of this valuable nutrient in your diet or skin care formula. Good sources for Vitamin E are fruits and vegetables like apples, and spinach for example.
