Step Three: Defend
Protect Your Skin From Bacterial And Free Radical Attack
We are under constant attack by the bacterial world and our only protection is the surface barrier of the skin known as the stratum corneum. However, when this structure is depleted or dehydrated, bacteria can get a foothold. The mere act of washing the skin with water creates micro tears in the surface. These micro tears then provide a safe harbor for opportunistic bacteria to gain a foothold, propagate and potentially interfere with the function of the skin. AminoGenesis creators believe that bacterial attack plays a role in both the dysfunction and the aging of the skin.
Laboratory tests were performed on dozens of moisturizers. They were exposed to the common bacteria listed. Graph 1 reveals the failure of typical moisturizers to inhibit bacterial growth. At the 36 hour mark bacterial colonies were growing at levels too high to count.
The AminoGenesis base formula was exposed to the same bacteria. After 24 hours no bacterial colonies remain as shown in Graph 2.
This special defense system ensures the highest level of germ free delivery of AminoGenesis to your skin and helps your skin defend against attack from the bacterial world.
Free Radical Defense:
Free radicals are unbalanced molecules caused by the sun, environment and pollution. These unbalanced molecules randomly bounce around inside skin cells and cause damage to important cellular tissues including DNA structures. Amino acids are natural free radical scavenges that seek and neutralize free radicals to help prevent the damage done by them.
