"Living Proof Time Defense Gel contains a breakthrough formula with Argireline (hexapeptide). A non-toxic non-invasive anti-aging gel made from plant extracts. Clinically proven to inhibit two internal processes that strongly contributes to the formation of wrinkles. They are:
1) The SNARE complex a natural formation of proteins in aging skin that stimulate neurotransmitters, provoking facial muscle contractions, thereby causing wrinkles and lines.
2) The overproduction and release of catecholamine-hormones, such as adrenaline, which affect the sympathetic nervous system and cause wrinkles through repetitive facial movements.
By inhibiting both the SNARE complex and overproduction of catecholamine, Argireline performs effectively in increasing skin smoothness and new lines are never formed.
The method which Argireline works is similar to that of botulinum toxin type A, but without paralyzing the muscles. It involves topical application that does not put the recipient through painful injections. Argireline is an inoffensive natural aminoacids that is safe and less costly. Clinical studies show that Argireline reduces the depth of fine lines and wrinkles 17% after 15 days and up to 27% following 30 days of treatment.
Time Defense Gel contains other active ingredients that offer an almost immediate and visible result.
Grape seed extract, a well known anti oxidant that helps to reduce the visible signs of aging. They are perfect for damaged and stressed tissues as it possess regenerative and reconstructing properties which allows for strong skin moisturizing effect. It also stops free radicals, which are the main cause of cell ageing.
Walnut extract is also a powerful anti-oxidant that protects skin from both internal and external aging. Thus preventing the photo-aging effect induced by harmful UV radiation that indirectly reduces the formation of wrinkle. Directions: Apply gel and tap lightly until product is absorbed. "
