Klotho Skin uses plant essential oils within its ingredient list. Hints of fruit oil extracts can be recognized.
Serums are highly concentrated moisturizers, delivering a potent dose of anti-aging ingredients, without the use of occlusive, or airtight, ingredients such as petrolatum or mineral oil that create a barrier on your skin. Because serums do not contain filler ingredients, they penetrate the skin faster and more effectively, requiring minimal amounts of product per application. In this manner, a serum is longer-lasting than a moisturizing cream. A 1-ounce bottle of serum should last months.
Klotho Skin recommends starting a facial serum at age 20, to encourage hydration and diminish fine lines under the eyes.
It is never too late to take care of your skin. The active ingredients in Klotho Skin products work on all skins, at all ages.
No animals were used for testing in the making of Klotho Skin products.
Fibroblasts are the main connective tissues found in the body. A fibroblast cell is responsible for building the extracellular matrix (a framework that supports additional structures) and collagen (the element that fills the framework). Together, the matrix and collagen form the structural framework of tissues and play an important role in tissue repair.
Klotho uses fibroblast cells to build collagen-based structures that interact with the introduced ingredient snow algae, and set the framework for Klotho activation and its resultant benefits.
Snow Algae is found in the coldest regions in the world, such as the tips of the Alps and coastal polar regions. During the summer it remains a hearty green, however when winter comes, it turns bright red in order to protect itself from harsh UV exposure.
At the cellular level, snow algae activates Klotho and the cellular energy enzyme AMPK (adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase). These two elements work together to produce life-lengthening results.
When activated, AMPK serves as a cellular detox, clearing cellular debris that generates low-grade chronic inflammation. Further, it improves cellular stress resistance. AMPK declines with age, giving rise to the physical signs of environmental stress. Snow algae has been shown to prevent decline in AMPK activity that accelerates the aging process, as well as increase the prevalence of collagen within the skin.
Peptides are short chains of two or more amino acids that play a number of roles in skin repair and function, including facilitating cellular communication and collagen production. Biomimetic peptides are lab-created amino acid chains that mimic the effects of naturally-occurring peptides. Through the use of specifically designed and targeted biopeptides, Klotho Skin is able to target receptor cells and encourage the activation of the Klotho gene within them.
TEWL is the process in which water passes from the dermis (middle layer) to the epidermis (outer layer) and evaporates from the skin’s surface.
While TEWL is a process that your skin naturally regulates, certain circumstances such as injury, low-humidity weather conditions and topically applied products can damage the skin’s barrier function can dry out the skin and affect TEWL levels.
