The principle of action of the Summus Elena skincare products
An innovative approach to the penetrability of components
Products of fermentation constitute an essential part of the traditional Japanese cuisine. It has been found that fermented products are better digested, their nutritional value being much higher. This specific principle has been successfully applied in cosmetology to enhance the effectiveness of treatment ingredients.
An innovative approach to the combination of components
The ingredients of the new line work together enhancing the effectiveness of each other. A component based on two fermented ingredients (sake kasu, or fermented sake lees, and a fermented pearl coix seeds extract) reverses dull skin and accelerates the production of ceramides thus providing a long-lasting moisturizing effect.
Sake kasu is rich in peptides, amino acids, vitamins and other nutritive substances. The amazake drink called “a drinking serum” in cosmetology is prepared by dissolving sake kasu in water.
The extract used in Summus Elena skincare products is obtained from sake kasu with the help of yeast; combined with sakura extract, it helps normalize the skin cell cycle and removes skin dullness.
An innovative approach to the action of components
The ingredients used in the cosmetic line, enhance and support skin’s natural regenerative and protective mechanisms, activity of which gradually declines with age.
The multi-layered yaezakura extract enhances the synthesis of the type 17 collagen which is necessary for basal cells division, helps normalize the cell cycle, thus smoothing the skin and evening out its tone.
Liposomal soy isoflavones work as hormonal balance normalizing component which suppresses the loss of collagen and hyaluronic acid in skin’s inner layers resulting from the decrease in the estrogen level, and makes skin firm and radiant.
A functional amino acid-based peptide improves skin’s ability to cope with the environmental stress. It inhibits the activity of plasmin and enhances skin’s resilience by making it less sensitive and preventing irritation.
AQUALIZER-IIB is an exclusive component developed by Shiawasedo laboratory, it is an effective concentration of a fermented Schizosaccharomyces yeast filtrate extract. Contains amino acids, vitamins, minerals, sugars, proteins and other elements necessary for the skin, activates skin cells and moisturizes the skin.
Ingredients boosting the treatment effect of the day essence
Scutellaria baicalensis extract is a natural component famous for its ability to provide protection against polluted air and other environmental stressors. Decreases capillary permeability and acts as an anti-couperose agent. Improves skin metabolism and boosts cellular regeneration. The extract is a natural carrying agent that delivers other serum ingredients to the cells. Controls sebum excretion, soothes the skin and prevents inflammation.
Lecithin is structurally similar to phospholipids in the cell membrane, protects the skin from dryness creating a protective film on its surface. Has a pronounced effect on the cell nutrition and toxin elimination processes. The processes of cel division and regeneration of the damaged cells are not possible without lecithin.
Silica is natural mineral powder included in the serum formula. This silky powder is used in cosmetology as an ingredient to prevent oily looking skin, it possesses mattifying properties and a visual skin smoothing effect.
Fermented pearl coix seeds extract increases biosynthesis of ceramides - components responsible for natural hydration of the skin. As a result, skin barrier function improves keeping the skin hydrated. The extract has anti-inflammatory, wound-healing and antiseptic properties. Pearl coix is a source of vitamins and minerals for skin cells. It contains amino acids (glutamic acid), unsaturated fatty acids (oleic and linoleic), А, Е, С and B-group vitamins, calcium, iron, potassium.
The plant is well-known in traditional Chinese medicine and has been used for skin purifying and brightening for many centuries. Nowadays the extract is applied in medicine for the treatment of dermatitis, including allergic dermatitis. Pearl coix extract heals small wounds and fights pigmentation as well as prevents formation of new spots.
Tocopherol (vitamin E) stimulates the synthesis of collagen and makes wrinkles less noticeable, prevents pigmentation, slows down age-related sagginess of the skin. Helps retain skin moisture and tones up the skin, boosts tissue regeneration, prevents development of acne scars. Also vitamin E helps fortify capillary walls thus improving the condition of couperose skin and reducing redness.
