Have you ever wondered how it would feel to cross the line, when you gain a few lines, then a few wrinkles and leave your youth behind?
In an ideal world, none of us would worry about the visible signs of ageing and would simply be content with the stereotypical concept of ‘growing old gracefully’ but with the market flooded with anti-ageing promises it makes it very difficult to resist trying to turn back the clock. The trouble is that it is much easier to prevent a wrinkle from appearing than it is to cure one that has already evolved and so investing in a worthy skincare regime from a young age to prevent all of your anti-ageing woes later on in life shouldn’t seem like too big an ask.
Especially as there are two ways in which we can age. Intrinsic ageing is the natural ageing process that takes place over the years regardless of outside influences. After the age of 25, we produce about 1 percent less collagen in the skin each year. As a result, the skin becomes thinner and more fragile with age.
There is also diminished functioning of the sweat and oil glands, less elastin production, and less GAG formation. (GAG’s are a thick gel substance that keeps our collagen and elastin supple) Wrinkle formation as a result of intrinsic aging is inevitable, but it will always be slight. Extrinsic ageing however may not be as kind! Should you be a sun worshipper, a smoker or your skin is regularly exposed to polluted environments then your skin will experience extrinsic ageing! Otherwise known as accelerated ageing, the end result is skin that shows signs of dehydration, deep set wrinkles, skin slackening and pigmentation flaws and trust me it ‘isn’t pretty’!
Interestingly it has become widely known in the skincare industry that minerals play an important role in the quest for healthy skin as they provide multiple benefits in helping to keep pH levels balanced while playing an important role in cell structure. To help skin perform at its best, it’s crucial that it’s not only properly hydrated, but that its mineral levels remain optimum in the face of damaging external factors, such as pollution, smoking and UV damage.
The skin’s microbiome equally plays a pivotal role in how the skin looks, feels and acts. The skin is colonized by millions and millions of bacteria, and just like the microbes in the gut, they have a large impact on overall health. Microbes on the skin, impact the way it looks and its ability to serve as a barrier between your body and the outside world so preserving the microbiome is pivotal.
With this critical evidence revealing itself all the time and Gatineau scientists and trailblazers in the field of Dermatology continually researching and developing ground-breaking formulas, it seemed an appropriate point in time to upgrade Melatogenine AOX Probiotics which was formulated over 7 years ago. So without delay (and a bit of a drum roll) I present to you The ‘Melatogenine MorphoBiotique’ Range.
Focusing its energies on combating pesky lines and wrinkles, creating that longed for radiant bloom and protecting that all important natural microbiome, this superior collection epitomises sophistication, expertise and results.
The cutting-edge range comprises of three products – a targeted ultra-hydrating moisturiser, a multi-action face serum and a plumping eye cream-serum – and these anti-ageing heroes have all been injected with the advanced technological ‘Morphobiotic Complex’. Powered by science and enhanced by botanicals it combines Great Burdock Root, Chestnut Seed Extract, a powerful MorphoTriPeptide together with our patented Melatogenine™ Youth Molecule.
Chosen for their effectiveness in tackling the problems associated with lines and wrinkles, these 4 potent ingredients when fused together initiate unparalleled results.
The benefits of Great Burdock Root are endless due to its nutrient dense profile.
Extracted using a patented process called ‘plant milking’, an innovative biotechnology that ensures the most concentrated of ingredient is preserved, Great Burdock Root contains powerful anti-oxidants capable of blocking harmful external aggressions as well as essential minerals. These include iron (essential for making amino acids and collagen), magnesium (benefits skin by helping to retain skin elasticity) , manganese (helps to protect the skin against oxygen-related damage and also against UV ray damage), selenium (a strong antioxidant that’s important in maintaining skin elasticity and flexibility), zinc (promotes healing and protects against premature ageing) and last but by no means least calcium (which plays a major role in providing firmness and elasticity for the skin).
With the addition of Chestnut Seed Extract cultivated from Correze in France, and the fact that this incredible deciduous tree can live for up to 700 years, I can definitely see light at the end of the tunnel on the quest for eternal youth! And its seed extract possesses high concentrations of antioxidants such as rutin and quercetrin.
These antioxidant compounds provide the skin with potent protecting benefits that work to neutralize harmful free radicals that are present in the environment and not only that but rutin has specifically been found to be an effective protective measure against the photo-oxidative stress caused by the sun’s UVA rays.
And with peptides being performance-specific it makes sense for the Morphobiotic Complex’ to include the ‘MorphoTripeptide’ in its formula. Peptides are fragments of proteins which trick the skin into producing its own proteins so peptides play an important role in the fight against wrinkles. Our ‘MorphoTripeptide’ is hailed in the skincare industry as a ‘cult peptide’ for its ability to rejuvenate skin, support cell renewal and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
When you team the ‘Morphobiotic Complex’ with our very own ‘Melatogenine’ youth molecule clinically proven to speed up cellular renewal and slow down the keratinisation process (and having won multiple awards since it was invented 19 years ago) I think Gatineau scientists might have unlocked the code to a smooth and flawless complexion.
And with the addition of Vitamin E, the skin saviour of vitamins, due to its multiple benefits – it improves the flexibility and fluidity of cell membranes and is critical in maintaining the suppleness and elasticity of the skin and it is also an essential molecule to protect against sun exposure and pollution. Plus it has a powerful hydrating and nourishing action whilst boosting microcirculation.
So as Gatineau continue to do what they do best in the world of high performing skincare, it allows you to continue to offer your skin ‘first-class’ treatment and superlative results!
