We supercharge our Serum15 with our proprietary peptides to create peak collage production!
It’s the closest thing to a magic bullet in skincare science. As a standalone ingredient, Vitamin C promotes collagen renewal, fades skin blemishes, moderates inflammatory conditions, and protects the skin from ultraviolet light. The subsequent cosmetic and health benefits are incontrovertible.
The market’s Vitamin C-based cosmeceuticals distinguish themselves from each other by what else they bring to the table. At Journey66, we blended our forte in proprietary biopeptide technology with an industry-leading 28% anhydrous Vitamin C formulation to optimize the benefits of topical therapy. Here’s why.
At its baseline, collagen synthesis requires vitamin C as an enzymatic co-factor. Take it away, and the process doesn’t go very far. Barter for less, and you miss your potential. Assays for a core marker of collagen synthesis, proline incorporation, proved that at a vitamin C concentration of 28% by volume, collagen synthesis hits a peak in the presence of our patented biopeptide. Any more vitamin C would actually stunt the process. And as for the vitamin C already in your skin — the vast majority of it is unbound or already oxidized, which renders it inactive for skin renewal.
Creating a stable vitamin C formulation with no preservatives required a stroke of finesse. The essential fatty acid(EFA) linolenic acid proved up to the task – specifically by preventing the oxidation of vitamin C. The EFA could also contribute to the serum’s bio-occlusive layer, in tandem with the soy sterols, phospholipids and other humectants in the formulation, to protect the active ingredients from the harsh realities of our environment. Binding the vitamin C to one of our proprietary biopeptides rounded out the effort, bringing us full circle in a pathway toward optimum skin renewal.
By protecting the formulation’s active ingredients, Serum 15 also maximizes cellular turnover at the surface. It’s a core feature of Vitamin C. Ultimately, skin becomes more supple, more smooth. Refreshed. And whatever becomes of it, it will be protected under the potent anti-oxidant umbrella of Vitamins C, E and A.
