A.G.E. Interrupter is specifically formulated to improve the creping, thinning appearance of mature skin caused by intrinsic or internalaging processes such as glycation. Glycation occurs when excess glucosemolecules stick to collagen and elastin fibers, eventually binding themtogether and leading to the formation of Advanced Glycation End-products(A.G.E.). Glycated collagen and elastin fibers lose the ability to functionnormally, and the body cannot break them down and replace them, which leads tosevere wrinkling of the skin.
- 4% Blueberry extract slows down the process of advanced glycation end-product (A.G.E.) formation, preventing the rigidification ofcollagen and elastin fibers
- 30% Proxylane™ stimulates GAG synthesis, restoring water and nutrients to the dermal epidermal junction
- 0.2% Phytosphingosine helps protect the skin’s barrier to alleviate discomfort associated with dry, aging skin
