Tips, Articles and VideosMore About WUNDERLIFT
When shopping for beauty products it is usually a common concern to find the best wrinkle reducing cream, which would deliver immediate results. Nowadays, consumers have become much more sophisticated, and expect the high standards of efficacy (visible results) from anti-ageing products. The main advantage of WUNDERLIFT is its immediate action, which works in just 60 seconds.
The effectiveness of the cosmetic product is achieved by the transportation of the actives to the target site (mostly into the epidermis). However, the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of the epidermis, acts as the natural barrier of the skin limiting the penetration of the substances. It has a specific “brick and mortar” structure: the interstices in the horny layer exceed 20 nm in width and are impermeable for many molecules. Therefore, to pass the skin barrier, the fluidity of the lipids (the physical property of a substance that enables it to flow) must be increased which can be improved by the chemical enhancers.
FlexTensor Technology present in WUNDERLIFT contains a firming matrix with colour correctors (iron oxides), which can instantly improve the skin by eliminating the appearance of Eye Wrinkles, Crow’s Feet, Under-Eye Bags & Dark Circles. A combination of moisturising agents, such as lecithin, and colour correctors, such as iron oxides, is designed to work on contact, showing visible results immediately after the application. A complex of “micro-fillers” consisting of nano- HA particles is released, which due to the tiny size of nanoparticles can penetrate through the epidermis effectively and deliver the lacking ingredients into the skin.
In fact, ageing is a very complicated process as it depends on various factors such as the exposure to the UV light, climatic conditions and diet. An example can be the generation of highly reactive free radicals through a series of chain reactions by UV light. This, in turn, alters the cutaneous tissue irreversibly by breaking down the collagen pillars of the dermis and thus leading to the appearance of wrinkles. Ageing process is characterized by a progressive decline in skin thickness and appearance of wrinkles due to cumulative changes in both the epidermis and dermis layers; loose, dry and rough skin; cell proliferation and structural abnormalities; irregular pigmentation; dilated blood vessels; and the degeneration of dermal elastic fiber. Furthermore, skin ageing directly affects both physical and psychological health as well as the social well-being of an individual.
Therefore, to minimise the harmful effects of UV light, WUNDER2 offers products with UV protecting agents, which are able to reflect or absorb the light at the required wavelength or molecules that can trap free radicals.
Main Ingredients in WUNDERLIFT
Retinol present in the formulation works effectively against ageing. It is a natural form of Vitamin A and considered to be the most powerful anti-ageing ingredient, which can re-texturise skin and dramatically reduce wrinkles.
It acts by “cell-communication”, signalling to the skin cells to return to their healthy state. So that is why it will not only prevent early signs of ageing but also restore the existing damage.
To enhance the effect of retinol, using a high level of SPF protection is important. Protecting the skin from photosensitivity and sun damage, the reparative benefits of the retinol treatment would be supported. Therefore, WUNDERLIFT contains some natural sunscreen components, such as titanium dioxide. It defends well against UVB rays and short UVA rays and works primarily by reflecting or absorbing ultraviolet light.
Additionally, Ascorbyl palmitate present in WUNDERLIFT was found to be effective at reducing free radicals generated from UVB rays. Furthermore, it also shows some moisturising properties of Vitamin C due to its palmitate portion.
