Principle of the effect and ingredients, common for all Summus Elena cosmetic line products
An innovative approach to the penetrability of components
Products of fermentation constitute a part of the traditional Japanese cuisine. It has been found long ago that fermented products are better digested, their nutrition value being much higher. This specific principle has also been successfully applied in cosmetology to enhance the efficiency of treatment ingredients.
An innovative approach to the combination of components
Ingredients of the new cosmetic line products work, at the same time enhancing the activity of each other. A component based on two fermented ingredients (fermented sake lees—sake kasu and fermented pearl coix 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 which is 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.
Экстракт, используемый в средствах линии Summus Elena, получен из саке касу при помощи дрожжей; в сочетании с экстрактом сакуры он способствует нормализации клеточного цикла кожи и устраняет её тусклость.
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 its tone.
Soy isoflavone liposomes are components necessary for the normalization of hormonal imbalances, they make the skin firm and radiant and inhibit the decrease of collagen and hyaluronic acid in the inner layers of the skin resulting from the decrease of estrogen level.
An amino acid-derived functional peptide enhances skin’s ability to cope with stress caused by negative environment. It suppresses the action of plasmin, increasing skin resilience and preventing irritation.
Special ingredients boosting the treatment effect of the lotion
AQUALIZER-IIB is an exclusive component developed by Shiawasedo laboratory, it is an effective concentration of a fermented Schizosaccharomyces yeast filtrate extract.
Being rich in group B vitamins, the component acts as an intracellular metabolic processes activator which stimulates oxygenation (consumption of oxygen) thus speeding up and enhancing skin regeneration.
AQUALIZER-IIB regulates lipid and protein metabolism, controlling the level of skin greasiness and dryness. Polysaccharides found in the component help reach a more pronounced rejuvenescent effect: they activate glycosaminoglycans in deeper layers of epidermis thus helping collect and retain moisture closer to the outer layer of dermis. As a result, the skin becomes firmer, and wrinkles are erased being “pushed out” from inside.
AQUALIZER-IIB is a powerful antioxidant which helps stimulate the activity of fibroblasts - cells involved in the synthesis of collagen and elastin that are structural proteins of the skin. Normalization and support of epidermis’ cells regeneration allows to stabilize the structure of the corneal layer and, consequently, to strengthen skin barrier function.
Fermented pearl coix extract helps promote the synthesis of ceramides - components that are responsible for the natural moisturizing of the skin. As a result, skin barrier function improves, and the skin stays hydrated. The extract has anti-inflammatory, wound healing, 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 acids), A, E, C and group B vitamins, calcium, iron, potassium.
The plant is well-known in traditional Chinese medicine and has been used for purification and brightening of the skin for many centuries. In modern medicine the extract is applied to heal dermatitis, including contact dermatitis. Pearl coix extract heals microdamage and fights pigmentation, as well as prevents the appearance of new pigmented spots.
